… moe moe yuri mahjong. Okay well, that IS to be expected, ahaha.
First episode follows the manga pretty well, not much difference here. Seeing them animated is fun though, with the seiyuus doing a nice job of their characters. With such an all-star cast (Kana Ueda, Ami Koshimizu, Itou Shizuka, Jun Fukuyama, Rie Kugimiya,
Miyuki Sawashiro Ryoko Shiraishi) it’s kinda hard to go wrong so fast there.
The mahjong parts are as dramatic as expected, especially in the last part with the 70 minipoint 2 fan hand by Saki there. In fact it makes a bigger impact than in Akagi mainly because they aren’t taking mahjong as SRSBSNS, since no one’s drawing blood or betting fingers.
I’m still having reservations about Gonzo doing this anime, and you can kinda see the QUALITY of the animation pretty clearly. It’s probably the most terrible looking show I’ve seen so far of Spring 09, especially with the failure of the animation for Nodoka’s boobs at times.
And speaking of them….
