true tears 01

true tears

Another harem/romance, this one with a more serious feel.

Protagonist is Shinichirō Nakagami, successor to the Nakagami household. He’s currently living together with Hiromi Yuasa, the daughter of his father’s best friend, who has died in an accident. Shinichiro has a crush on Hiromi, but finds it hard for him to approach her, made even more difficult by the fact that Hiromi still acts very reserved towards then, even after living together for a year already. Shinichiro also has artistic ambitions, but it seems to be opposed by his mother.

He meets at school later, Noe Isurugi, a rather cute but mysterious girl, who likes to climb trees and befriend chickens. Also, she supposedly can cast curses on someone, Shinichiro on the receiving end after teasing her. Well, somehow he gets involved with her, and even makes her a tissue box sculpture of a chicken, pleasing her enough to remove the “curse” from him.

So far, the show with the highest production value yet, with some really smooth animation going around, even having 3D for crowd scenes. I sure hope they’re managing the budget well enough on another hand. Nothing much to say about the story, it’s mostly introductions yet so far, but it seems promising enough, and if the second episode is good, I will pick this up for sure.

Other than that, awesome eufonius OP again, and what’s with the SD obsession this season, with the group SD marching thing for the ED that kinda makes me lol.

    Jeeze what’s with every other harem lead or girl haveing one parent that died in an accident? I can count the number of characters with both parents with one hand. That being said, I haven’t seen this ep yet (depended on fansubs) but I was expecting this anime to be about the True Tears VN, so I was kind of dissapointed. Well if this turns out good then it’s fine.

    I would prefer this HS harem over boring, sleepy Clannad or Kanon. Something mesmerizing about Isurugi Noe that separates her from the pack.
