lapassantjuriste: Sakamich no Apollon (9)
[personal profile] lapassantjuriste
Again I'm blow away by how real this series is. As someone who regularly watches this genre, I can safely say that this is possibly the only series I've come across, which truly seems like a slice-of-life. There are many elements to this story, and each one is portrayed beautifully, and not in an over dramatic way, not that this series lacks drama, its main character's are teenagers, so there's bound to be drama, but none of it is overstated. 

And since the past three episodes have introduced some romance I suppose I should say something about it. Lets just say in reference to what I say before, even though it is a major element of the story its wonderfully subtle, yet also very direct. Many series have characters carrying flames for other characters, and never doing a damn thing about it till the very last episodes of the series, but this one subverts the trope for the most part, as both Kaoru and Sentaro, have done something about their feelings for Ri-chan and Yurika respectively, even though it has not amounted to much but you've got to give them credit for effort. Lets just say that I'm really looking forward to what will happen in future episodes and the impact this will have on things.

Also its nice to see that Brother Jun is not as perfect as he's been made out to be, because until episode four he was Mr. Perfect, and even the guys were a little in love with him, but apparently he's a bit of a womanizer, not that its a large flaw, but he's not perfect that it gives him more depth as a character, and if he turns out to be anything like Nagasawa from Murakami's Norwegian Wood, things are going to get mighty interesting now that Yurika has a crush on him.
I have so much more to say about this series, but I'm going to have to leave it for another day as I have a paper tomorrow and I really should be studying.
