I’m still enjoying the series, but the charm of the first two episodes appears to be gone. Instead, Hanasaku Iroha seems to going down the path of a typical slice-of-life/drama series, although one with gorgeous art. On the plus side, the story also continues to move forward at a decent rate, helping to keep the whole thing interesting.
About two fairly heavy episodes, the third installment of Hanasaku Iroha gives us a more light-hearted and typical for the slice of life genre episode. As I really didn’t want to see anything bad of a sexual nature happen to Ohana, and that would have been the other way for things to go, I didn’t mind the way the episode went, even if it was a rather cliched type of episode.
Because girls come to the men’s washroom to listen to your request to get their emails.
Possibly the show with the best art of Spring 2011…
As I write this, we’re only a day or so away from the conclusion of a most marvelously memorable deconstruction of an anime genre. As such, I thought it might be interesting to look back on another such memorable deconstruction, that being the anime School Days.
But wait, you may be saying, School Days was a deconstruction?
Perhaps not intentionally, good reader, but I definitely think that one can interpret School Days as a deconstruction of harem anime, and here in this blog post, I will explain why.
If there was a time to believe in the Virgin Mary, this would be it.
I know I’m late to the bus here, as far as P4 anime news is concerned, but I can’t wait to see this animated. Beyond the fact that it was a fantastic game with a great involving story (which I wrote about before), it’s looking like a solid cast and crew is forming for it.
