Tayutama is…

… pretty damn cute. But not sickly cute nor trying-too-hard-to-be-cute cute. In short, I’m lovin’ it! Plus, it has a non-fail-non-wimpy male lead for a start, so it’s getting off to be pretty damn enjoyable. I still lol’ed at how cute those “tayutai” are though… despite them being supposedly maligned to humans and stuff.

Norio Wakamoto as the lead’s (Yuuri) father is fucking hillarious though, since it’s been a while since I’ve seen him doing a non-SRSBSNS role (ex. Charles “ALL HAIL BRITTANIA”). Itou Shizuka is also in the show and the rest of the cast puts on a solid act so I’m going to enjoy this show if it keeps it up.

Story-wise, I do hope they can do it properly, since it does sound a bit contrived with the whole bit about finding a future where humans and spirits can coexist. But then again I think I’m going to watch this for the harem-jinks entertainment more than for the story anyways… still I hope it’s to a level that I am not disgusted away.

    From the viewpoint of the game players, and/or those who are familiar with the whole plot… the story might be moving too fast. Then again, it’s only for 12 episodes, so they gotta cram in as much plot as they can… hope that doesn’t backfire.

    I love love looooooove the way chibi Mashiro talks. I wonder if it’s how she somehow briefly pauses after saying words… That and normal Mashiro is a great example of yamato nadeshiko brides.

    Speaking of brides, the Yuuri x chibi Mashiro scene’s almost a twist from the normal “childhood promise” routine commonly found in romance series.

    Making cute promises to little girls that would be in effect when they grow up… it’s not necessarily a good idea when you find them all grown up the next day. (b”)b

    Seems like a really cute show. Alot of stuff this season seems a bit heavy or episodic. At least here we get a nice comedy romance were you don’t need to get subs to figure out what’s going on.
