Hyakko – Episode 1 and ImpressionsOctober 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.
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 :)
