It’s kind of obvious who I was focusing on when I watched this episode, right?? Hahahaha I’m afraid no one else really captured my attention. I CANNOT stand the guy Tori! He is SUCH a L-O-S-E-R!!!! AAAAAAAAH!!! The only thing that kept me going here is Miyuki Sawashiro who voices Masazumi (the dark haired girl pictured here). She also did the voice of Canaan and Hagino from Blue Drop!!! To be honest, I foresee that I will eventually be dropping this anime. I might hang out for another episode.
Who’s watching this one?
I decided to check this anime out cos the story sounded kind of interesting but it was mainly the art that captured my attention. The animation seemed very high quality and the character design of the girls kind of remind me of Shizuma from Strawberry Panic! It’s the really pointy noise and dainty looking faces. I seriously find Shizuma very hard to beat on the looks side. *SWOONS* hahahaha
My only complaint about this anime from watching it for a few minutes is their oversized BREASTS!!! *ROLL EYES* Seriously. *sigh* On the whole though, I do like the designs. The soundtrack that played in the opening was promising too. Finally for good measure, there are a tonne of seiyuu that will ring a bell!
- Ami Koshimizu – Nina Wang from Mai Otome, Kanako from Marimite, Holo from Spice & Wolf
- Aoi Yuuki – Alice from Croisee, Madoka from Puella Magi
- Marina Inoue – Natsuru from Kampfer, Matsurika from Maria Holic,
- Miyuki Sawashiro – Maria from Arakawa, Canaan from Canaan!!
- Ai Shimizu – Tamao from Strawberry Panic!
- Mai Nakahara – Nagisa from Strawberry Panic!
- Minako Kotobuki – Mugi from K-ON!
I’ve been meaning to summarise what is catching my eye in the coming season but spare time has been hard to find lately!! Luckily both Yuri no Boke and hashihime has both summarised what’s coming this season. I’ll simply highlight those that I will be checking out. I might not be entirely accurate on the plot summaries…just a warning…The following is broadly in the order of the most appealing first…
Episode 1 on 13 January
Story: Shuicihi Nitori appears to be a shy and quiet preteen boy, when he transfers to a new school he quickly makes friends with the tomboyish Yoshino Takatsuki who sits next to him. It soon becomes apparent that both Shucihi and Yoshino are more than simply a sensitive boy and masculine girl, they both are transgendered. Together they decide to take the first steps toward becoming the people they want to be (taken from ANN).
Reasons for watching: There are a number of reasons to watch this one!! Firstly, the mangaka is the one from Aoi Hana, Takako Shimura!! There’s no yuri but the anime focuses on some transgender issues!? Sounds interesting!! Plus if you go to the website and check out their trailer, the art is soft and endearing with a very classical music OST. I love the use of strings!! How can you NOT watch it!?!? Seiyuu wise, it’s also quite attractive with Aki Toyosaki (Yui from K-ON!), Nana Mizuki (Fate from Magical Girl Lyrical), Saeko Chiba (Natsuki from Mai-Hime), Yoshino Nanjou (Maria from Canaan), Yui Horie (need I say more!?) but they seem to all just play supportive roles. The main two characters are played by new voice actors, I think?
This is basically the typical horror zombie movie (I mean, anime) that is set at the highschool. Well it’s actually better than how that sums up..Surprisingly! I didn’t have much expectations on this which explains why I didn’t even mention watching it beforehand but so far I’m impressed! It’s scary (the gore and suspense of the zombies attacking) and for some reason I feel that the characters’ expression of fear is expressed quite vividly. When I was watching it, I found myself a little scared and could just imagine that I’d be pissing in my pants!!! hahhaha Oops! A bit crude! :P
Two episodes in, there are a handful of survivors in the high school:
- Takashi – he’s in the middle picture behind the girl, Rei. He’s in love with Rei but as her boyfriend was bitten by a zombie, he had to kill him. After reconciling with Rei they both stick together to fight their way out of this mess. His weapon is a baseball bat.
- Rei – part of the martial arts spear club, this girl can fight! She’s known Takashi as a kid. She’s voiced by Marina Inoue who was Natsuru in Kampfer!
- Saeko – I call her the kick ass version of Sachiko!! hahahaha Don’t you reckon? She’s really strong at kendo so can definitely keep those bloody zombies at bay. She’s voiced by Miyuki Sawashiro who was Canaan!!! OMG! I only just realised!!!
- Saya – not that likeable, she claims to be a genius – she’s quite smart but modesty, girl!!
There’s two more…but they’re not that important and I’m getting tired!! One is Kohta who is a chubby guy who is a bit pansy but turns out to be good with guns! He provides the much needed comic relief in this anime – which explains why I’ve screenshot him so many times!!! haha Last of all is Shizuka – the blonde school doctor who so happens to have very well endowed…assets…I guess she provides comic relief too but kind of annoying!!!
This one is worth watching!!
Wow…I thought the opening was quite amazing…with Tenshi playing the piano as the consistent image through out. I like the entrance with the solo piano playing too. Was it there before? I don’t recall seeing it in episode 1! I love the piano!!! ^_^ hahaha Anyway moving on…
So far, I think episode 3 is the best so far. Girl Dead Monster (don’t ask me how they came up with THAT name), the girl band, is lead by the red-haired guitarist Iwasawa. She’s cool and can really punch out some gakkoi tunes. When I have time I’m going to definitely give the music a few more listens – might even try to get hold of the single if one does appear later. BUT her rock tunes do not beat the ballad that she strums near the end. Though it is a slow piece, usually unfavoured for diversion purposes, everyone including Tenshi was drawn in by her. The lyrics are quite touching:
