Matsuri-chan kawaii yo Matsuri-chan!

sola has totally become one of my “must watch” shows this season. Noto-sama in a non-stereotypical role for the win! Matsuri-chan kawaii yo Matsuri-chan!

Also, it features two other good seiyuus in non-stereotypical roles, namely Mai Nakahara’s character as Aono, first time seeing Mai Nakahara doing the stoic girl role here, and Tomoko Kaneda as danbooru loli, which kinda reminds me of Suisuiseki because of her green dress.

For now, I’m really wondering how will the story for sola go on, but so far it’s been heavily hinted that Matsuri-chan is either a vampire or suffers from a form of sensitivity towards bright lights. Aono seems to be suffering from a similar condition too, but knowing that the screenwriter is a one of those working on Kanon before hand, I’m taking the illness part.

    The action at the end caught me by surprise, never expected this to be action oriented at all. Oh, and I agree with you on the Noto-sama part.

    Like Onmi said a long time ago… “Mai Makahara is in everything…”
    And Noto-sama as a leading role FTW!!
    Kanon + Rozen Maiden designs = Chance….

    Doesn’t Matsuri’s hair and eyes (colour) reminds anyone of Hazuki from Tsukiyomi ?

    ^^;;

    […] Honestly I was expecting some typical harem action but the last couple minutes of the first episode really got my attention, as it did for several anime bloggers out there. kurogane pretty much sums my feelings on the seiyuu cast, where Shirukii, Omni, and Hinano give the good word on the actual episode.

    Wow the first episode OP is good, the slow music combined with the fast pace of the bike really threw my eyes off.. this looks good

    This just rekindles my “moe~” passion for young girls with long, flowing black hair. :3

    Even so~, it’s not enough to carry the show, for me. Needs more clarity. ;/
