Cute, funny shoujo with a good soundtrack. What's not to like?

Wow, I only watched this because of you OP. I love shoujo romance. The soundtrack, characters, art, everything is perfect. Thank you!

Indeed; thought at first Bokura ga ita came to mind (or Kimi ni todoke on crack). This show is somehow promising...

Also: they're both rather good looking, aren't they? the landscape drawing style is nice, too.

<--- He's doing it so right...

But honestly: relantioships do ruin one's intellectual development. Unless they just carefully shag (maybe) and brake up in time, she's gonna end up an early pregnant valueless cunt (like the other girl, the stupid one, most probably will).

I never gave a shit about shoujo in my life, but I'm enjoying this show a lot, so far.

WOAH. I normally try to avoid all caps as much as possible but WOAH.

Manga is manga, LNs are LNs, VNs are VNs and anime is anime. Obviously, when you adapt something from one medium to another you'll have to deal with some adaptation decay, that much is nigh inevitable. But I didn't expect Brain's Base to this this half assedly.

This gives a whole new meaning to 'frame by frame adaptation'. Normally I'd use it when trying to praise something but here... Obviously, you can't draw every single thing in manga. It's too time/space consuming. So if you see a panel with somebody in class and someone jumping out of a window in the next one you can figure out what happened in between.

But that's manga. There's not only no reason but also absolutely no excuse to do the same in anime. What the hell is up with these cuts? The scene transition is absolutely shittastic. Know what, I'll actually check who's directing this...

And sure enough, not only is he not a new face he worked on Kimi ni Todoke before. Which is pretty much the same thing. So why was there no problem with adapting KnT when this looks so bad? I won't even mention 'talking is a free action' syndrome since it has been around for decades and nobody found a good way to avoid it.

I'm the guy who kept saying 'Natsume this, Natsume that'. The seiyuu who voices Natsume is okay. I was afraid they'd pick someone with a 'am I kawaii uguu' voice and it is a bit of a problem but I can deal with that much I guess. Could have been a whole lot worse.

... Now, how many volumes did I read again...
>> No. 12041 [Edit]
A lot of shows do cuts like that for comedic effect. It has a certain kind of humour to it when someone's reaction to something is not only so extreme that he would jump out a window, but that the extreme reaction is completely sudden and without hesitation. That helps define his character more.
>> No. 12044 [Edit]

I certainly did consider that possibility since delivering the punch line as soon as possible is very important in comedy (what's the point of a joke if everybody can figure out what'll happen next?) so I can excuse that particular scene. It's just that it happens all the time. The pacing suffers as a result, too.
>> No. 12063 [Edit]
I'll have to pay more attention to see what you're talking about. Nothing they've done so far has really bothered me. I didn't read the manga, though.
>> No. 12071 [Edit]

I'm overreacting because bad cuts are my #1 anime-related pet peeve. I just can't stand them and I literally can't recall a series where the cuts were as bad as they are here. Eva 2.0 was terrible, too, but at least they had a decent excuse.

The 'chase' scene from the story in ep 03 was an example of trying to adapt something too faithfully with little regard to the quality of the anime. Not really an example of a bad cut/scene transition, though.

But hey, if you enjoy it as it is good for you, I certainly don't plan to advise you to drop it or anything. I just wanted to get it off my chest. Overall it's not that bad, it's just that I would've expected more from Brain's Base (and a director who has some experience adapting shoujo romance manga).
>> No. 12080 [Edit]
After watching EP04, I see what you're talking about. Some of the cuts were rather terrible.

The show is slower than it started, but paced well enough for me to enjoy watching it.

Shizuku's voice is music to my ears, especially when she narrates or when we get to hear her thoughts.

Actually, I kind'a wish I was more like Haru: a tall, attractive academic genius with tender charm, who nevertheless is bold and frontal and can also beat the shit out of any jerk who's going too far... you know: to be like a real (manly) man.

More like Slice of Life, where there's no linear narrative arc and nothing remarkable ever happens. Shoujo, on the contrary, has been traditionally melodramatic.

Except it's not 1980 anymore. 'Modern' shoujo has looked like this for at least a decade by now. Every single popular shoujo nowadays is pretty much 'Heron and Crane: The Manga' (before getting turned into Heron and Crane: The Anime).

Claiming that this isn't a shoujo because it lacks melodrama is like claiming a character is not a tsundere unless she(/he) planned to gauge out the MCs eyes - while it's not completely wrong it's just incredibly outdated. Might as well try to convince people that 'gay' means 'happy' and has nothing to do with homosexuals.

Cellphone, tell me your secrets.
>> No. 12959 [Edit]
yeah, modern tsundere's prefer to kick MC in his balls.
>> No. 12960 [Edit]
From my experience shoujo romances get resolved. Boy and girl starts loving each other but then some problems occur and problems get solved. Tonari was more like typical shonen romance (like kimagure) where guy and girl run circles around each other 12/24 episodes and in the end nothing happens.
>> No. 12961 [Edit]
Where would you guys place Karekano (the manga, since the anime got gainaxed)?
>> No. 12964 [Edit]

>where guy and girl run circles around each other 12/24 episodes

How is that any different from shoujo? Like the most popular shoujo manga right now is Kimi ni Todoke which you pretty much summarized there (Crane and Heron). The biggest series (sales-wise of course) that I can recall before that was probably Lovely Complex. Guess what happens. First the girl decides she likes the guy, he doesn't, then he changes his mind but the girl...

It's an absolute staple of shoujo romance. Of course it gets resolved in the end (after 30 volumes or so) and the absolutely most obvious couple gets together.

Shounen romance I see in a completely different light however. With shoujo whether the story is told from a perspective of a girl or a boy isn't very important. The series fouces on how they interact with each other etc.
In shounen there's this super popular girl named Mary Sue and the MC has a crush on her and somehow he impresses her in a completely ridiculous way (by saving the damsel in distress) and they live happily ever after. It's more about the effort of the guy I guess. Harem scenarios are not a staple but highly propable.

Well, at least that's how it works from my experience, feel free to prove me wrong. I don't read many romance series because they bore me to death, most use the formula I described above.
>> No. 12966 [Edit]
Well you might be right when I think about your examples. From my experience shoujo romance is actual dating stuff while shonen romance is the circling stuff. Maybe I haven't watched enough. I don't read manga and there aren't many good shoujo romance animes.
