Kannagi 02

Kannagi

Kannagi continues to be the most delightful watch for me this season, with Nagi-sama’s antics continued.

This episode follows quite well to the manga story although there are a few continuity changes in regards to Tsugumi’s appearances. There’s also the fact they are bent on making Jin much more of a pervert than he was in the manga too, but it’s not such a bad thing since it provides a bit of a laugh and it’s done in a subtle way too. Can’t blame him for being “curious” about living together with a goddess.

Definitely a look that’s not to be forgotten soon.

It’s just a futon… albeit a futon where a goddess has just slept on for all night.

I still find it amazing that she could drop the stick so accurately in the middle of the table like that.

Jin keeps finding himself in, uh, sticky “situations”.

Nagi-sama is really quite the actor. That almost got me too.

Looks like the final ED picture is changed. This may prove to serve as quite a collection. I like how they make Nagi look so divine in the ED this week.

Production quality remains high still, and it’ll be good to see it continue for the rest of the run. Next week should be the introduction to Jin’s school mates and more of Tsugumi as well. There has been a noticeable lack of her so far, in comparison with the manga.

Also, I just found out the official site that’s advertised in the episode, http://www.nagisama-fc.com, is actually a copy of the one in the manga! I’m so joining to the club too.

    Love how she lol’d at the magic wand. She’s so much fun, the OP really gives a good expression of her shiny brightness.

    Some of the info i get from the net

    The music in the show is by Kousaki Satoru, who did the music for both Suzumiya Haruhi and Lucky Star, and also did both the OP and ED for Lucky Star, apparently.

    The animation director is Kadowaki Satoshi, who hasn’t directed the animation for a whole show before, but did episodes of Air, Kanon, SHnY, and Lucky Star. Character design is by Mima Kakeru.

    Best of all is director is Yamamoto Yutaka 山本寛.

    He directed and/or storyboarded and/or wrote some of the best episodes of Suzumiya Haruhi. He wrote, storyboarded and directed both episode 00 and the concert episode, and he storyboarded the episode with Yuki reading, as well as writing two other eps (3 and 5).

    This are ex-members of KyoAni.

    “Production quality remains high still”

    LOL. Check out the beginning, where Jin is in front of a mirror. Even though his moves on the both sides are very nicely animated – they TOTALLY dont match !

    […] hand, there was no such ambivalance with respect to Kannagi. Kurogane bestowed unto it the title of most delightful series of this season. Though I needed to check the dictionary to find out what hashihime meant […]
