And it’s crap!!!! *ROLLS AND CRIES ON THE FLOOR* BOOOOOOO!!! *takes a deep breath*
To be fair, it’s not THAAAAAAAAT bad…the character designs are actually ok and it has the usual typical elements of a shoujo-ai anime i.e. a character that likes to harass others – somewhat sexually; a character that is cute and fluffy and admiration thrown all over the place. The anime is about a few middle schoolers and their day to day lives. My problem with it is that there is no plot and not engaging enough. *sigh* Given my limited time dedicated to anime watching, I’ll have to give this a miss…
All I see in this season’s anime is MOE MOE and MORE MOE!!! Can we seriously get some older girls on screen next time round!?! Here’s my list…I miss my yuri!!! :(
A pretty much unknown seiyuu cast but since it’s said to contain yuri, it will be top on my list!!! It’s MOE though…*Sigh* What happened to the good old Marimite days!?!! *CRIES*
MOE MOE MOE!!! ARGH!!! Despite the moe, it’s on my list as the animation looks amazing!! It tops Gosick’s animation with a lot of it set in Paris. Plus there is Yuuki Aoi!
The story takes place an Ideal City “NO.6” in 2013. Shion was judged as having “highest-ranked intelligence” when he was two years old and was allowed to live in a luxurious area “Cronos”. On his twelfth birthday, he met a beautiful boy “Nezumi”, who had escaped from a reformatory. Shion protected him but the Public Security Bureau deprived Shion of all the privileges and expelled him from Cronos to “Lost Town”. Four years after the banishment, a mysterious accident leads Shion to the secret of the city NO.6.
This has caught my eye because of the story and the art.
Nana Mizuki!!! I miss her!!! Also throw in vampires and some decent animation and I’m definitely willing to give this a shot.
This is simple romantic comedy with a slight twist! A girl at school has a butler who turns out to be a girl! I like the butler. She looks cute and feisty too!!! hehehe Usually I’m not into gender bending but this one looks like it has potential as a good mainstream comedy.
So I started the episode with expectations of a pretty slice of life anime that would give me a peaceful 20 minutes of relaxation with some laughs in between but what did I get!?! Yes, the art is no doubt quite striking but don’t let the face of Ohana (the main girl) trick you! She may look innocent, sweet and weak with her two flowers in her hair but she is the opposite!!!
She lives alone with her mother who appears somewhat useless as a mother! Ohana seems to be the one running the household and is told one night that her mother must run off with her boyfriend as the debt collectors are after him!! I’m like you’re kidding me!?!! -_-” But rather than joining them in their midnight run, her mother sends her off to her grandmother that runs a hot spring inn. Doesn’t sound too bad, right? WRONG!! The old lady turns out to be a nightmare!! I’m also furious at how she treats Ohana and the other girls at the inn!!! RAWR you!!! If I was a customer and I knew that the inn was being run that way, I would never return!!!! I feel sorry for Ohana but I like her character. She’s strong!!! GO GIRL!!!
Thanks to Tsundere Translations for providing us yuri fans with four chapters of the Candy Boy Manga! It’s been out since December ’09! I didn’t know what to expect, but it does maintain that very sweet atmosphere from the anime and goes into a little more detail about Yukino and Kanade’s lives.
The Manga definitely contains sprinkles of fresh aww moments dashed here and there between the twins in addition to some funny parts! The bit where Saku-chan is tied up and hanging from the ceiling so the sisters can have a peaceful walk alone, cracked me UP! Hahaha! That reminded me of the last episode of the anime where Saku-chan is wrapped in the blanket and falls asleep. Also, a new character is introduced! Yurippe plays a cool and tough yet caring and supportive classmate/best friend to Kana-chan.
Although nothing overly exciting really happens in the manga, it is still worth checking out..
The 2nd OVA, ‘See You Tomorrow’, has finally been subbed!! It’s been uploaded onto Youtube! HD quality too!! All thanks to mikirudotnet!!
Just seconds into the OVA and I’m immediately reminded of our wonderful Miu-chan!! I LOOOOOVE her interaction with the others – particularly Nobue and Chika!! hahaha Miu-chan is SUCH AN IDIOT!!! She’s one hell of an attention seeking brat!! hahahaha
One thing particularly hilarious about this OVA is the Ichigo Mashimaro signature scene!?! Mi-chan flat on her face!!! HAHAHAHA But this time we get a bonus!! It’s Nobue-chan! She’s done a “Mi-chan”! Didn’t know Chi-chan was getting that physical!! haha I guess she’s finally learnt not to be bullied!! I wonder whether we’ll get to see Ana like that too later?! hahaha It feels kind of wrong though!!! She just needs to act all cute in her pink dress. Hehehe
The gang is BACK!! For those not familiar with the Ichigo Mashimaro anime series, it really is just made up of random stories on four 12 year old girls and their interaction with the older Nobue onee-chan! Stories typically are about how they spend their lazy afternoons / holidays. BUT, despite the lack of any genuine content, it is actually very entertaining! LOL Fans of this series will nod in agreement. I mean, how can we not like Miu-chan!! haha I wrote about season 1 a few months back.
Once again, Miu-chan steals the show with her crazy antics and ideas! However, before I start rambling on Miu-chan, let me just note that it is true that the girls here have gain a few pounds! LOL They seriously look a tad chubbier than in season 1! How strange…well even Ana-chan points this out to Miu-chan…haha
Guys!! OVA 1 has been SUBBED!! I’m still downloading but I doubled checked and yes there are ENGLISH SUBS!! The torrent is available here.
Note: Wordpress does not allow the uploading of torrent or zip files so I’ve had to add a document extension to the file ‘.doc’. When you download the file, you will need to delete the fullstop and doc ending. Your computer should then recognize it as a torrent file. If you have any problems, you can find me on MSN and I”ll sent it to you there. My MSN email is yasashiisekai @ gmail.com (no spaces of course!!).
OOoh!! Can’t wait! More of the whole Ichigo gang and of course MIU-CHAN!! HAHAHA
