From now on I will write out scores for the shows I’ve watched. For anime these scores will include Story, Characters, Animation, Music, Total and Average. I’m, for now, using a 0-5 system. 5, is awesome, 4 is good, 3 is neutral, 2 is bad, 1 is horrible, 0 means I can’t score it. Scores and what I score might change over time.

This is a… well, to be honest, I don’t really know where to put it. It seemed like it would be a love comedy, but Uka’s and Inari’s relationship is in focus and Inari’s love is just some sub-story with barely any progress at all during the 10 episodes this show consists of. Continue reading
Batch posts are posts where I write early impressions on shows I end up dropping or about OVAs, which I can’t write a lot about.
Natsume Yuujinchou: Itsuka Yuki no Hi ni
Takashi Natsume (CV: Hiroshi Kamiya) is able to see demons. One snowy day he sees a demon who is searching for something, but doesn’t know what it’s searching for. Takashi tries to help it, but it’s hard when all he knows it’s something nostalgic, new, sparkling and warm. When the demon finds it, it became a flower and disappeared.
It’s typical to Natsume Yuujinchou and filled me with emotions – as the show always done. I loved this little OVA and when I watched it earlier this spring, it was really fitting. All in all, it’s a lovely OVA which captures the essence of the entire show, music, pacing, story and feelings included.
I should write about NatsuYuu in the future.
