Slow Start ( anime )

Oh my gods, this is a title I don’t think I would of picked myself!! It is thanks to The Yuri Nation  that I decided to pick it up and damn I didn’t stop until the last aired episode!! Before anything, please do check that link out, this guy, the OG man, does a splendid job telling us about all that is yuri and girls related, I’ve found awesome stuff by checking out his site, so if you want to as well, go take a look!

Now, the anime is indeed slowish, but in the best way, think about non non biyori, the characters are cute, I love how  Tama-chan ( the genki girl) throws references to games, specially dating sims, specially when it involves Eiko (I dunno what to make of her but she surely has a way with women, whether she does it on purpose or not) , it’s also funny and charming, funny and sweet, what else could you ask for? Seriously, so far there’s nothing set on stone, but I sorta like Tama/Hana and Eiko/anyone lol.

If you like relaxing, enjoyable anime titles, with a hint of subtext (hint? pfff, it’s a bit more than that) and silly stuff going on, please do check it out, it doesn’t seem all that at first but it grows on you, fast, I can’t stop watching, I swear.

The neighbor, Hiroe is also pure gold!

 

Citrus ( anime )

Well, of course I’m going to write about this, I have an entry about the manga, oh about 3 actually..anyway, I knew the anime was coming out but alas! I missed the first 2 episodes but thanks to The Yuri Nation I was aware of this and could get on the Citrus wagon.

So, I know many people think it’s a very overrated series, I’ve been reading manga, specially yuri manga long enough to know it has it’s fair share of clichés and in my opinion too much drama and dragging along the suffering and unsolved issues, then again, the art is so, so gorgeous I can look past that, except those times I want to slap everyone cos they can’t just sit and talk dammit, TALK, but if people could express what they feel or think there wouldn’t be any, or not so many, manga titles I guess so…

So, the anime, I love the seeiyus ( voice actresses ), I think they fit in correctly, I am up to day with the manga and I am super pleased to see they are remaining faithful to the story, including iconic moments and facial expressions, they did well with the art ( except, am I the only one bothered by Yuzu’s reddish knees?) and I have liked hair color options so far.

The intro is quite to the point “you’ll watch yuri, girls kissing, these 2 here, there ya go thanks” so no surprises there

 

 

I don’t know how much can they cover in this season ( am I hoping for more than 1 season? yes) but on the intro there’s even the twins, so we’ll see… will they have a different ending to the manga, which isn’t finished as we speak, but I have the feeling it will soon?

Ah, can’t wait to see what the future holds, but so far I’m pleased beyond reason, haha, of course I got other animes to watch, but that’s a different post, so now, if you like the manga, check out the anime, if you don’t..check it out, Mei is as “aloof” as ever but damn she seems more human when animated, for some reason.
