Cuteness overload I think…
Psychic powers set in a high school romance comedy series? That certainly sounds like a very strange combination to me; however, I am really curious to see how everything gets balanced, usually I end up just watching these types of series rather than blogging them because I enjoy the comedy portions more than anything. So, for Kotoura-san I decided to challenge myself and try something new this season with a new solo style podcast reviews~
Epic voice talent
Haruka-“I am going to love you forever de geso!”
Ever since Hisako Kanemoto got her start back in Sora no Woto as Kanata Sorami I had no idea that she would become one of my favorite voice actors. While I always favor her as the iconic Ika Musume! I know she has done several roles over the recent seasons that have tested her range like the bossy Asteria, bratty Grunhilde, yandere Curly and fanservice ninja Yuki! Those are some of her more interesting roles of the past; however in terms of the dramatic and emotional roles I enjoyed listening to Yui from Kokoro Connect during the emotional scenes even though she is a complete copy of Mahiru Inami from Working especially with the androphobia, but I rank her role as the hyper yet super shy Yayoi in Smile Precure as one of her best to date. During certain episodes of Smile Precure Yayoi has to go through several emotional scenes and yes believe it or not the Precure series as a whole contains some really fantastic drama even though in the end everything is resolved thanks to friendship.
So, what about her role in Kotoura-san? Personally I love listening to Hisako Kanemoto in the more serious roles as of late and just from one episode I can say she is going to do a fantastic job as Haruka! At least I certainly hope so, but I can’t completely forget that the ever popular Kana Hanazawa is also in this series somewhere. I just hope this series can maintain that balance of comedy, drama and romance and who knows maybe this will be a big hit? I certainly can’t get enough of it.
Fun with Kotoura-san
Prepare yourself to be royally owned!
Manabe for sexiest face in winter 2013…
Haruka no ecchi~
Why do you tempt us so!?
I WILL DO IT!
Kind of a short post because I think I talked about all the important parts of this first episode and after one episode I just can’t wait to see more hilarious interactions between Haruka and Manabe because damn those were some great scenes! Yeah for the most part he was acting really perverted to get the attention of Haruka; however, it was a great change of pace from the sad and emotional stuff that flooded the first half of the episode. Also one last thing to mention! THE MUSIC oh my god the music is just fantastic especially that dramatic scene with Haruka having a breakdown with the missing kitten she was taking care of? Yes it was heartbreaking watching her struggle with her feelings, but I am pleased that the OST is great even if the animation is not that amazing I still enjoyed it a lot. So what did you like about this episode that I might have missed? Also I am open to any suggestion as to my voice recording as in do you want me to include a guests or do you want more than just ten minutes? Thanks for reading!
Haruka-“Fufufufuf this is the easiest job of all time.”
