Ano Natsu de Matteru Ep 1: Pleasant Surprise [First Impression]


My name is Eva, I've been watching Anime since 2003, and I became a fan later in 2005. I am a passionate writer, so it's a wonderful experience and incredibly thrilling to blog reviews/critics and just express myself about the series.

    Have to agree with both you, Lemon all the way. As for the first episode though, I wasn’t really that impressed. It got me a little interested but I’m not a huge fan of the characters so far except Lemon. Not sure why but they don’t strike my fancy. Nevertheless I think I’ll keep watching it because the director also did Toradora which is my favorite romance of all time.

    Is it just me or does this show somehow remind you of Ano Hana?
    Lemon is also my favorite character in this show XD

      No you aren’t the only one. It was the first thing this show reminded me just based on the PV before this aired, but I think what stands out the most is really the setting and landscape, not to mention Jintan himself and his own house (at least his bedroom in some scenes). It’s also by the same director which is pretty common to see among anime.

    So many glasses of this series, and Nancy’s catsuit in the opening seems a reference to ROD Could we be facing Shoot Or Die?

    The japanese have a special name for the effect of “transparency” in the glasses frames? I saw this effect also in Aoi Hana and Sasameki Koto.
