Hyakko – Episode 1 and Impressions

October 2, 2008

Very nice anime that turned out just like I expected :D Prepare for a wall of images from the first episode and a brief review ;) I’ll keep blogging about this anime probably ^_^

Genres: comedy, slice of life

Plot Summary: The story follows the antics of four high school freshman girls, after they enroll into a huge private academy that teaches every grade from elementary school to high school.

Opening

Ending (Aya Hirano)

You’ll quickly notice the storyboarding experience of Michio FUKUDA in action. The episode is pleasantly filled with shots from many different angles and interesting screen splits make the story more fun. Background art is warm and beautiful yet not too detailed or coldly photorealistic like in some other modern shows. Piano, acoustic guitar, and violin music nicely flow with the scenes and Vivaldi is always a plus :) Aya Hirano (Haruhi, Konata) and other voice actors perform quite well. I’ll have to listen more to determine which one I like the most. The plot involves some kind of school settings and reminds me of Azumanga in a way, but I don’t really care at this point because the anime looks and sounds wonderful. Probably, I’ll be blogging about this anime regularly :)

  1. This looks like a pretty interesting anime, that seems definitely entering!
    I especially enjoyed the joke you described in the episode where the character makes a perfect entrance to the series by jumping out the window and landing without any injuries, but then fails to simply turn around X)
    I really like the animation style as well!


  2. Yes, I enjoyed the style very much :)

    That scene was executed very well :)


  3. This work is very sensible to me in the direction of the felt. The future will be how to proceed. The first story in this time, Tatsuki is the best of my favorite characters.


  4. I really liked this anime :) Yup, we’ll see how the future episodes will look like. I believe you are referring to Tatsui. Yes, she is an interesting character, and I like her voice actor :)


  5. yeh, Michiko Neya’s acting was very attractive. ^^


  6. [...] Notes: – Easy to mistype as Hayakko – Directed by Michio FUKUDA. It seems like his directorial debut after extensive experience storyboarding: Death Note, Honey and Clover, Le Chevalier D’Eon, Ouran High School Host Club, Pani Poni Dash, ROD TV, Welcome to the NHK. – See many screenshots and my brief impression of the first episode of Hyakko [...]


  7. [...] Toradora! – Hyakko – Eve no Jikan – Yozakura Quartet – Kuroshitsuji – To Aru Majutsu no Index – Kannagi: Crazy [...]
