Sakamichi No Apollon – Review

Anime Review – Sakamichi No Apollon 

kids on the slope

Name – Sakamichi No Apollon / Kids On The Slope
Genre
– Slice of Life, Romance, Drama, Josei

Episode – 12
Status – Complete

Story – Nishimi Kaoru has moved from city to city and school to school because of his father’s job, so having his first day at a new school was just routine for him. Being intellectual in addition to being a transfer student all the time, he has always been seen as an outcast. All he has had to do was bear it as usual until the next time he moved.
But things were slightly different this time. First, he started to get close to the class president, Mukae Ritsuko, and secondly, unlikely as it seemed, he grew closer to Kawabuchi Sentaro. Sentaro was infamous for getting into fights, skipping class and was an overall bad boy. Strangely enough, the three of them find common ground in music, namely jazz, and Kaoru finds himself actually enjoying the new town. *Source Mangafox

My review / Thoughts – 

Ever wanted to just sit back and escape from reality by diving into the depth of love, friendship & melody? Then ‘Sakamichi No apollon‘ is the best choice for you. The show being a bit under-rated, I was really surprised by how much I loved it. In my opinion it’s one of those few Anime around that are true to their manga counterparts, or even better in some aspects. Intense story, real-life characters, ups and down of emotions and lastly, Music; all these features instantly made the show one of my favorites. This anime is something that I will remember for many many years.

My thoughts on ‘Hirunaka No Ryuusei’

003x

Name  – Hirunaka No Ryuusei
Author – Yamamori Mika
Status – Complete (2011-1015)
Genre – Romance, Slice of Life, Shoujo, School Life, Comedy.

Summary – Suzume Yosano has lived deep in Japan’s countryside all her life until she’s forced to move to Tokyo to stay with her uncle. A new city, a new crowd, and a new tall, dark haired peculiar stranger that just happens to be her homeroom teacher.

My thoughts – Before I start with my thoughts on this Manga, let me tell you beforehand, I knew about the ending right from the beginning. To be honest the ending was what made me think “I need to read this Manga”. So there are chances that my review is biased. Deal with it okay. 🙂

Okay so how do I put it, I don’t know if words will do justice expressing my feeling for this Manga. To me, ‘Hirunaka no Ryuusei’ was probably one the most wonderful Manga I’ve come across till now. It was not just another typical shoujo Manga with full of cliche stuffs, rather it was matured and more realistic. The way every single pages of this Manga touched the deepest parts of my heart, the way it made me cry over fictional characters, I don’t remember when was the last time I felt like this while reading a Manga online.

The name of the Manga ‘Hirunaka No Ryuusei’, which means daytime shooting start, itself had a lot of meaning in the Manga. Suzume Yosano, the main female character of the Manga was an adorable brave girl, who moved to Tokyo from the countryside. With the passing of time she fell in love with her homeroom teacher Shishio. To Suzume, Shishio was like a daytime shooting star. The whole ‘falling in love for the first time’ thing was so beautifully executed that it still aches my heart. The story may not seem anything extraordinary, main girl falling in love with the main guy, what was so different about it? The ans is, it was the beautiful execution of the plot. It was a story that made readers realize that it’s okay to move on in life and find new love.

Story – As she edges toward the end of her high school life, the energetic but generally clueless third year Tamako Kitashirakawa has only one major concern: pulling off a stunning baton performance at the Usagiyama Marching Festival.

Unfortunately, the shy admirer cannot bring himself to declare his love, and Tamako is yet unaware that she is the source of such anguish. With time quickly running out, Mochizou must confess his feelings to Tamako soon, or his dream of romance will never be fulfilled.*MyAnimeList


My thoughts
– ‘Tamako Love Story’ is a sequel to the Anime Series ‘Tamako Market’. However I didnt watch the series, so for me the movie was sort of like an introduction to the characters and the story. But that didn’t make me enjoy the movie any less. From the beginning till the end, the movie was fun to watch.

My thoughts –

‘Kill Me Heal Me’ was undoubtedly one of the best dramas of this season. It’s awesome from almost every angle. The drama itself was a complete package of romance, humor, tragedy, excitement & suspense. The plot was unique, well-written & wonderfully executed. The consistency it maintained throughout the last episodes was worth complimenting. Even though the story was a little stretched somewhere at the end, yet the last few episodes were no less exciting than the first ones. That’s what makes the drama worth watching several times.

Hakushaku To Yousei (Earl & Fairy) Review

Name – Hakushaku To Yousei (Earl & Fairy)
Episodes: 12
Status: Complete
Genres: Fantasy, Romance, Shoujo.
Rating: PG-13

Story – The story, set in Victorian Britain, follows the adventures of 17-year-old Lydia Carlton, nicknamed the “Fairy Doctor” due to her interest and understanding of fairies. Her life takes a 180-degree turn when she meets Edgar J.C Ashenbert, the “Legendary Blue Knight Earl” and his crew on a sea voyage to London. Edgar hires her as an adviser during his quest to obtain a treasured sword that was supposed to be handed down to him by his family. *Source Wiki

My Review – I enjoyed this show despite it’s flaws & cliches. The story was interesting in my opinion. Edgar’s tragic past & his never ending desire for revenge, sudden re-appearances of his old enemies and the bitter sweet relationship between Lydia & Edgar; all these things kept the story going. But the story lacked the depth that was expected & needed. Moreover it seemed a little bit rushed sometimes. However these negative sides didn’t stop me from enjoying this show. 😛
