I’d like to write a full blown summary, but I’m kinda short of time for now, so I’ll do it later.I’ll just leave my opinions about this show for now, and for those who want a summary, get it at the usual place ;).
I didn’t really expect much from this show, except for a chance to hear Ai Shimizu perform something other than a obese cat. But, unexpectedly, it is kinda good, though Omni doesn’t really like it :P. This show will definately appeal to the Rozen Maiden fans.
The most outstanding part of this show, IMHO, is the setting and the soundtrack. Never before have I had such an urge to get an OST right at the first 5 minutes of this show. The soundtrack is totally fitting in with the Victorian setting of the show. I need more listening to the OP and ED before giving away any comments, though.
But still, you can say Kagihime tends to borrow too much from other series’, such as the Melway Space (*fuuzetsu* from Shana) , the key weapons (Kingdom Hearts) and also the Alice Game (Rozen Maiden).Heck I even spotted Marjery and Hayate/Viita.
But still, I kinda like the show and it’s full of potential. It didn’t really felt *mahou shoujo*-ish for me, and the sweetness level is just right. We’ll have to see later though :).
