The story begins as high schoolers, who happen to be in their third year of high school, say good bye to their teacher who’ll be on maternity leave for some time. On the same day comes a transfer student from Austria, Wien, who seems to adapt well to the class, although he has a bit of trouble with his Japanese language and culture.
Branching out, Miyamoto Konatsu is a girl who wants to be part of the choir, however her teacher doesn’t want to let her sing due to some past event where she showed that she apparently couldn’t be a part of it. With this, Konatsu decides that she’ll start her own choir group, brings in another girl called Sawa, and tries to find other people to join her so that the club will be accepted.
At least, that’s the impression I was given by this first episode. Not only does this seem like an awesome slice of life with pretty art, but it also has singing involved?
I wasn’t deceived one bit with this first impression. First off, great introduction for all the characters. It’s only the first episode and I feel like I can slightly connect with almost all of them, especially Konatsu, who looks like she’ll be the main character of the story. I particularly like Wien also, not only because he’s really cute, but also because he’s funny as hell when he messes up Japanese culture.
It also seems like the main storyline has begun already, which gives me great vibes in terms of pacing. I do believe all the characters we met today will be a part of Konatsu’s choir group, and I can’t wait to hear them all sing, especially Sakai since she seems so uninclined to sing. Those characters always end up being the best 🙂
Lastly, I mentioned it already, but it needs mentioning again: THE ART IS SOOOOOO PRETTTYYYYYY!!!!!!
The character art, the backgrounds, the scenery, the clothes, everything! O____O I can’t stop watching this show, even if the story sucked I’d be glued to my computer with sparkly eyes, rambling on about how beautiful it is.
Possibility of watching: Yes
Possibility of blogging: Shotgunned it a while ago, and I still haven’t changed my mind 🙂
P.S.: Oh yeah, I thought I should mention it, but the song the choir was singing was the opening to True Tears, another show which I totally recommend for slice of life lovers :).
