Aww… how cute….
did you overload?
The show that Strip… someone we know quite well has been waiting for. Well… I do understand his feelings, watching Chokotto Sister does make me /r/ imouto for Christmas as well. I don’t really mind if it’s as cute as Choko-chan. But to be honest, real life is much much more cruel, so keep that in mind, eh.
Not a bad first episode. Granted, the show went a different way that the manga, by having the shopping sequence instead of the gangster one. It seems that the production team will be emphasizing on the sweetness of the story and less on the fanservice moments, which is fine by me, since it will be quite hard to achieve the level of fanservice that was in the manga with the anime short of making it into a hentai.
Still, the core of the Chocosis is the story and the characters. It will be nice to see it in the anime form, and hopefully, they will manage to make it touching without being cheesy. Haruma also seems much more cooler and decent than in the manga, while Choko-chan is as cute as usual. Newcomer Momoko Saito is doing a nice job with Choko’s voice.
Animation and art-wise, it retains the manga style, while still having it’s own feel, so it’s not that bad, than from what I saw in the pre-release promo material. The OP is fine, while the ED is really a “WTF?” type of song. The Neko-nyan Dance is somewhat of a Choko trademark and although it wouldn’t probably be as popular as the Haruhi dance, but I’m sure for certain that someone has learned it XD.
Good expectations for the Chocosis anime for now. Hopefully, all my favourite parts in the manga will be told and done nicely. Not very bloggable, though I might make a few entries here and there.
Oh, and /r/ for Ms. Santa spinoff. She must be the coolest Santa I’ve seen in anime. Too bad she only has like 3 mins of fame :P.
