A Week In Review: March 5th – 11th

Last week’s “A Week In Review” couldn’t be done because of midterm exams and lab reports. I felt that it was probably too late to publish last week edition 3 days late. Then again who cares, considering there is nothing cutting edge on this column :lol:. Anyway, whether I did it or not, the week before was mainly highlighted by

a tsundere Haruto

a cameo from Elizabeth (Gintama) on Hunter X Hunter

and a pedo in Aquarion Evol

Ano Natsu de Matteru – Flurries of Love

So I’ve been watching Ano Natsu de Matteru this season and it’s been surprisingly good – considering it’s all teenage romance and drama. The story development has been pretty… slow, and the characters are of an okay calibre. I’m sure some people love this show like I love Chihayafuru, but I don’t really get it.

But I do admit it’s still good.

One of the best things this show has going for it is its multi-faceted “love triangle” – or perhaps we should call it a “love pentagon” – not because it’s particularly clever (it’s basically one girl likes one guy who likes another girl who likes another guy who likes another girl), but because it’s fairly realistic both in the way it’s set up and, more importantly, how it’s all played out.

(Before you hit the jump, be warned that I’m not explaining anything in this article; it’s not so much a review as it is a literary observation. If you need a brief of the romantic situation, see this article Sorrow-kun wrote; it’s super informative.)

A week in Review (Feb 20-26)

It’s been like 19 days since the last update  and I should break the blog’s inertia with a new column called “A Week in Review”. You could say I’m abandoning the regular format of blogging one show every week (FOR NOW, because I’m LAZY). Instead, I’m just writing about anything that happened the previous week. My ball of crystal predict an un-epic fail from my part considering I’ve been rusty.

First Impressions – Ano Natsu de Matteru

To my surprise, after watching the first episode, I can safely conclude that Ano Natsu de Matteru (Waiting in the Summer) is the spiritual remake of Please Teacher!. You’ll find similar plot, setting, characters and opening. I was expecting some nostalgia because of Yousuke Kuroda, the screenplay writer, and Taraku Uon, the original character designer, having made Please Teacher!. However, I wasn’t expecting Ano Natsu to be so identical to that show. J.C.Staff might as well rename this Please Senpai! or Please Transfer Student!. LOL
