Sakamichi no Apollon 01

Sakamichi no Apollon

Well, the romance quotient in this show was quite a bit higher than I expected. Nevertheless, the partnership of Shinichi Watanabe and Yoko Kanno isn’t one that should be dismissed due to minor concerns such as this.

Gotta admit, Sentaro’s drum beat is still stuck in my head. And I’m going on a Jazz album search on Youtube currently so this show is doing something right!

One interesting thing to note is how rather similar the setup this show and tsuritama is with regards to the main characters of both shows. Both are frequent movers and have trouble reaching out to others due to this. However, both encounter someone different from the usual and slowly start to open up to others? It will be interesting to see how both shows are going to parallel each other.

    This is *so* going to be like Beck. Very likely not as good as Beck was, but still awesome.
