I’m starting on a new anime today. I chose this one because it is yuri and it sounds similar to Marimite but with more humour (there’s an even bigger reason but I’ll cover that later). hehe I can’t wait for Season 4! In the meantime, I will need to distract myself with other things…Just a quick warning – don’t expect any outstanding storyline…I’m sure that as you read along you will find that it all sounds a bit familiar…
Plot: A new girl, Randou Rino, transfers to the Miyagami Academy where there is a student council body that is more powerful than the teachers. The council is headed by Jinguuji Kanade (long purple hair) who basically owns the school and is successor to the family conglomerate (Sachiko anyone?). The council is made up of three branches: (a) Assault Squad – equivalent to the “police”; (b) Covert Squad – the intelligence team; & (c) Vehicle squad – I think they look after the driving etc. Anyway, each member has their own special abilities, whether this be fighting or intelligence gathering.
You can check out the opening here.
Another very very good reason to watch this are the voice actors!! OMG!! Guess who stars in this anime!?!? Now how often will you find all the below in ONE anime??
- Jinguuji Kanade ~ Hitomi Nabatame ~ Shizuma in Strawberry Panic! Her voice is very similar here!! ^_^ Nice!
- Kinjo Nanaho ~ Junko Noda ~ Miyuuki in Strawberry Panic!
- Hida Sayuri ~ Ayako Kawasumi ~ Chikane from Kannazuki no Miko – GREAT!!
- Kutsugi Kotoha ~ Kana Ueda ~ Yumi from Marimite
What I think so far?
I’ve only watched 2 episodes of the 26 so can’t say too much but pretty good so far! Rino is always carrying around a puppet which I thought would really annoy me but not yet! It’s fairly light-hearted and kind of funny! I’m going to continue watching it – will write up another update later! One thing I’m a bit disappointed about is Jinguuji! I wish she was prettier – the face and the hair just lacks the WOW factor for me…on the otherhand, the other characters look pretty good…more to come!
