The List is Growing!
So I started with just watching two new shows this season but I have been pulled in to another two shows. I’ve added Sakamichi no Apollon (Kids on the Slope) and Accel World. The latter getting a peep based off good first impressions. There was an overwhelming majority of people enjoying Accel World with many not having high expectations before they watched it. Kids on the Slope got a look because a twitter friend mentioned it being about jazz. I like jazz, I like anime, seemed like a good mixture to me. I was a bit worried about Crunchyroll‘s offerings for this season but they have KiotS and the still corny but likable Uchuu Kyouda (Space Brothers) so I have been mollified.
I clicked on my Crunchyroll channel and settled in to see what KiotS had to offer and was pleasantly impressed. This show looks like it will have enormous potential. For some reason, I have a feeling that a character will die but I hope not. It just seems so soothing that tragedy is lurking around the corner. I hope that is not the case because I was amused by the antics of Sentarou Kawabuchi and look forward to see what trouble he gets Kaoru Nishimi into and a possible blooming relationship between Nishimi and Ritsuo Mukae. It has the makings of a love triangle, I hope the show is able to avoid that. It gave me a Nodame Cantabile vibe but that might have been due to the musical aspect although the characters are pretty quirky. Here’s to hoping the show keeps it up.
Have there been any surprises for you?
