I’m glad you’re thinking of me.
This week's DOTW has a weird synopsis, even for an anime:
Skip Beat! follows the story of Kyoko Mogami, a sixteen-year-old girl who loves her childhood friend, Shotaro Fuwa, but is betrayed by him. Having spent a large part of her childhood at Shotaro's parents' inn, she learned a great deal about hostelry and other such jobs.
Romance? Revenge? Running a hotel? Still, not a bad price for 24 or 26 episodes.
Yehhhh its still ongoing aswell,The synopsis is strange yes but I rate the show highly I'm just sad they didn't adapt the whole 40+ volume long manga that it's based on. It's actually about her breaking into showbiz and the revenge thing. Can't remember where I read it but a review site referred to it as a 90s shoujo that feels like a 70s shoujo and that's in some ways not far off (as in think more Glass Mask, Swan and the works of Riyoko Ikeda, Moto Hagio, etc, than stuff like Kare Kano and Fruits Basket), the dub is also pretty good if perhaps not for everyone
Dunno I felt the English accents were forced, and this is coming from a guy who couldn't stand Mey Rin's English dub voice in Black Butler!The current deal of the week is Princess Principal on Blu-Ray. It's a really fun little show about spies in a steampunk Victorian London. The English Dub is fun. You get to hear a solid set of core performances and then a bunch of American actors doing British accents of varying degrees of quality and consistency.
Yeah, it's a slice of life set in rural Japan consisting of the smallest class known to man. I've only seen S1 so far but it's a lovely, cute little show, very relaxing.Never seen non non biyori before
Is it slice of life?
