"Nii nii no baka" - Miya Tachibana
To put it simply, Amagami SS is like a fireworks show. It starts with a bang, and ends with an explosion. And one thing is certain- all of them are pretty.
The Story: 9/10
The story starts with our main male protagonist Junichi Tachibana being stood up on a Christmas Eve date which occurred two years ago. Having a hard time warming up to others, he does not have a girlfriend. In the seven arcs which comprises of four episodes each,(except for Risa Kamizaki who is given one episode) each arc is given one main heroine girl in which Junichi is their personal love interest. Each arc is set in a parallel universe, so the jumps from arc to arc do not follow up. Each arc is unique in itself. Not only are you given a different girl for each arc, but the circumstances and problems encountered are all different for each girl. This brings a little more flavor to the anime rather than being around the same issue. The only thing that affects the main story line that isn't changed in each arc is the fact that Junichi was stood up, so each arc starts from the same point as all the other arcs do with the characters being in the same relationship with Tachibana each time unless it is the heroine girl. The pacing of the story is about the same in each arc, but there would be times where you’d have little segments from the past being put in and the switches are noticeable so don’t worry with not being able to keep up. Each of the arcs endings are very satisfying.
The Art: 9/10
The art in Amagami SS was fluent and definitely consistent. The art style was about the same for each character, though their physical appearance may look quite different the outlines are still the same - it doesn’t become annoying though. The color shading was very neat and precise, the backgrounds astonishing. There were some sweet lake scenes where you could really appreciate the art. Color overall in the anime went very well with the atmosphere created by the main girl's emotion. There were times where the background would blur a little bit but you rarely take much notice of it. The art was not up to the particular par of Kyoto Animation (known for Clannad) but was very watchable for an anime aired in 2010. Overall the art was very fitting for the story in Amagami. The use of colour at different angles makes each scene enticing and memorable.
The Sound: 10/10
Sound in Amagami SS was very crisp and clear. The OP, 'I Love' is an immensely addicting song for a romance anime. The EDs were sung well, and one thing to note is that each main heroine sings her own version of the closing song. The voice acting here was very smooth. Each of the main girls’ voice suited the type of appearance and personality they had. Another thing to note is that Amagami SS does not come in a dubbed form- for all those dubbed watchers out there-, from what I have searched. There might be a couple of fan dubs but it is doubted they’ll be any better than subbed.
The Characters: 9/10
The characters were all unique. We are presented with Tsukasa, Haruka, Sae, Ai, Rihoko and Kaoru as the six main girls and Risa as the seventh. Each of the girls has their own unique traits, hobbies and personalities, of which all of them are very entertaining and likable (depending on what type of person you are). Tsukasa appears to be a kind class representative, Haruka the popular senior, Ai and Sae as Miya’s friends, and the two childhood friends Rihoko and Kaoru. Junichi, the main male is kind, thoughtful and slightly perverted, but this side of him always ends up to be used in a form of comedy which ended up being very repetitive- overused until it just wasn't funny. The supporting characters do not have much effect on the story line; in fact, they don't really do much at all. There is little-to-no development of them at all, but it does not get agitating, unless one of them was your favourite character. In the Kaoru arc, there was a narrator speaking what was going on in Junichi’s mind sometimes. This was only slightly bothersome though, but it’s assured some people just won’t like it.
The Enjoyment: 10/10
If you are new to romance or drama Amagami SS might be a good choice to be introduced to the genre, if not it might all seem a little cliché. But I don’t care; I’m a sucker for cliché. Amagami SS first started in the form of a game, which was the adapted into an anime. I’ve seen some manga of Amagami, and it goes into a little more detail than the anime- not that the anime hasn’t touched on the subject at all but that it shows what is occurring at an event much better. Re-watching this anime definitely added to my personal enjoyment of the series. The satisfaction in seeing your favourite pair come together in the arc is what makes me come back to it. The anime was very memorable, even a few days after I had finished but I have to admit that it’s very less in my mind now as with all the other awesome anime I have watched.
Thanks for reading my review, or even parts of it- I don't blame you for reading all of it, but again, thanks you.
"That was Christmas Eve, two years ago. She never showed up to the date." - Junichi Tachibana, Episode 1
No no, that's not what the story is all about. Sorry to scare you about a what you thought was a spoiler. Well here goes my longer-than-normal review, because there is so much to talk about.
Amagami SS hit every note correctly. As a fan of romance, it was a very, very, enjoyable series.
Story: You have Tachibana Junichi. He has a calm and kind personality, and can be a pervert sometimes with his friend Masayoshi Umehara. As quoting above, he was stood up two years ago on Christmas Eve. That event derailed his happiness ever since. It affected him so much that he even made his closet into his bedroom. Present time, he now looks to overcome it. He starts to take interest in a popular senior at school named Haruka Morishima. She eventually makes Junichi her "pet" letting him carry her stuff. He then thinks it's a good opportunity to confess. He does, but all the hope he had in a relationship quickly shattered a couple seconds later. "I prefer someone who's reliable and older than me." (Haruka Morishima, Episode 1). Well, back to old ways now, right? Wrong. Junichi decides that he will keep trying.
Well that's a preview of Amagami SS for you. I can write so much more, but I will try to keep it short and sweet for now. The story is set into multiple arcs, in omnibus format, meaning that these arcs do not happen in the same timeline, and happens in alternate universes. Also, as you can see from the above, the story is really entertaining. Some people will walk away from this anime saying it's cliche and all, but there's not that much cliche to begin with, or it could be that I was too busy enjoying this series.
Character: Character development is a must for a good romance, and Amagami does it right. Different arcs mean multiple girls. Actually, you have 6 different ones to choose from. The popular and fan favorite Morishima Haruka, the childhood friend Tanamachi Kaoru, the shy and cute Nakata Sae, the other childhood friend Sakurai Rihoko, Miya (Junichi's sister)'s friend Nanasaki Ai, and Class-rep Ayatsuji Tsukasa. They all have different traits, which makes each arc very unique and entertaining to watch. I gave it a 9 for reasons withheld, if you finish the series, you'll probably agree with me.
Art: The artwork is just crisp and clear, and the art makes the characters look very nice. No, I'm not talking about Morishima Haruka in her Santa costume, well, you can Google it and judge the art by the pictures, but in general, it looks really nice. I wouldn't say it's identical to Kimi ni Todoke, but it's similar in terms of it's clarity in the art.
Sound: I have the OST, why? Because it's one of the OSTs that I enjoy listening to. The background music fits really well with what's happening in the anime, whether it'd be Junichi depressed in his closet again, or it could be the first time meeting someone. The OPs, I Love and Kimi no Mama de are one of the most catchiest songs I have heard in an anime. The EDs feature the main girl of the arc singing their own song. I can't recall if there were multiple insert songs, but there was one insert song that I couldn't stop listening to. Anyways, the sound and music were just beautifully organized for Amagami. It made everything natural and added the atmosphere to your viewing experience.
Enjoyment: Amagami SS was a really enjoyable series to me, and probably one of my favorite romance anime out there. It combines well-done romance, with a generous portion of comedy. If this were a game (which it is), then the replay value would be very high, and it'd be a really good game as well. Before I go, some final words: If you're starting into the Romance genre, or a fan of Romance, or even just into comedy, give this series a chance.
Overall Rating: 9 read more
While Amagami SS does not have an incestuous relationship as a central plot point, both shows are presented in an omnibus format that allows the viewer to experience all of the available 'good-end' paths for each girl.
Both have an arc for every girl. It's not like Clannad or Kanon, oh no, but in these shows they go back in time and the main character picks out a different girl.
Yosuga's got graphic nudity and sex scenes, while Amagami's more... your average harem anime.
The concept is the same, we get to see all of the possible ending with the different girls. But... with more "hentai" ;p
Both feature a variety of girls getting together with the protagonist. After a story arc is finished, the story resets and things take a different route, leading to a romance with a different girl.
While a story arc in Amagami SS is four episodes long, the ones in Yosuga no Sora aren't as linear, some consisting of barely two eps while others take longer.
Amagami SS is a casual romance anime. Yosuga no Sora features nudity and sex scenes.
Amagami SS takes place during the winter. Yosuga no Sora takes place during the summer.
Both Amagami SS and Yosuga no Sora are based off a visual novel (Thank you Akitso for correcting me), and they both may look like a Harem anime, but they concentrate on ONE heroine. Please correct the following statement if I'm wrong.
Amagami SS seem to trigger different heroine route from the beginning of the game while Yosuga no Sora seem to contain Heroines which that can be triggered in the middle of the game. Therefore, Amagami SS will air 4 episodes for each heroine while Yosuga no Sora might air shorter epsiodes for different heroines.
If you liked the idea of watching different heroine as if you are playing a game, I suggest that you watch Amagami SS as well.
-Both animes's setting/story goes by an omnibus format, and have small arcs for each heroine that can either or not be diverging from the central plot of the story (with the setting intact)
Amagami SS - is Light Romance
Yosuga no Sora - is extreme romance xD
But the main character experiences with different girls in different timespace in different situation
Both shows story line is taken from dating game, and both shows have short storys of the main character chosing difrent girl witch lead to difrent ending.
from what i have read, and what i have watched.. i know its based off euroge
aka a dating game. so basically there is one main guy who gets to try and see how things would be with each different girl, thus like a dating game.
Both extremely repetitive with different scenerios of main guy with the girls around him.
Yosuga no Sora is just a more (unnecessarily) graphic/mature version
Both anime acts like a visual novel where the storyline is separated by different arcs... and girls... and shows how will one guy end up if he goes out with a certain girl.
Both are romantic animes. Where each girl gets episodes with the main guy portaginist then time rewinds and a new girl gets episodes with with guy
Even though the there isn't anything incestual about Amagami SS or in anyway means provocative, it's very similar to Yosuga no Sora in a more softer/cuter sense. Each girl gets to have her own time and her own episodes with the main character. Both are very good series.
Amagami SS and Yosuga no Sora are romance anime that are separated into small arcs that focus on an individual girl and her growing relationship with the main male protagonist. This is a unique trick that one does not see too often in game adaptions. Both series feature good and well developed characters mixed with amazing animation. Yosuga no Sora is certainly more ecchi based and is meant for mature audiences, while Amagami SS is much more lighthearted and will leave you with a wonderful warm feeling in the end. If you liked watching one of them you wont regret trying out the other.
Well, it's obvious . Do I really need to tell something ?
Every girl has her own arc.
Yosuga is more .. well .. there is twins .. and also umm.. it's +18.
Both show is about boy and different hot girls.....of course all the girl get their own arc so everyone gets a happy ending
If you've seen one, you should have give the other a look.
I feel like the relationships, situations and behaviour in Yosuga no Sora could actually happen. In Amagami SS, that realism feel has been removed. But don't get me wrong. I enjoyed Amagami SS much more than Yosuga no Sora.
You should know that Yosuga no Sora has sex scenes but I wouldn't call them graphic and they're very short. In my opinion, it usually happens as a confirmation of their relationship and feelings for each other, which is why I approve of them.
Best girl always wins in the omnibus format as they cycle through each girl's arc and ending.
Both series follow the same format (omnibus format, multiple arcs)
Also, both involve romance. It's just that Yosuga no Sora features an incestuous relationship.
If you liked the the structure of the arcs in Amagami then you would be able to appreciate it in Yosuga no Sora. However, in my opinion, it isn't done as well as Amagami.
Both use the omnibus format in adaptation. There are no sex scenes or incestuous themes in Amagami though.
There are several story arcs where a different girl gets her own story with the male lead. It is in an omnibus format, so it's not actually a harem anime. The main difference is that Amagami is more dramatic, and Kaminomi is more comedic.
-Both animes's setting/story goes by an omnibus format, and have small arcs that can either or not be diverging from the central plot of the story (with the setting intact)
-Both can be considered BUT IS. NOT. a harem, since the anime concentrates on one heroine to the next.
-Both animes have the main character encountering with a lot of different girls
-Both are funny and have very good romance parts
-in The World Only God Knows, Keima, is known as the "The Capturing God" because he can "capture" any 2D girl in any game and receives an e-mail offering him to "capture girls" and accepts. It turn out there are loose souls who hide in the bodies of girls and his with the help of Elsie, a Hell demon, he must capture the hearts of the girls in order to force the loose souls out so they can be sent back to Hell.
-In Amagami SS it is about Junichi Tachibana who got his heart broken during Christmas last year. The anime displays different girls whom he falls for and each heroine in the story has a chance to tell their story.
-Both animes are really good and I really recommend them
it basically the same except minor details like someone helping the main protagonist and real world and supernatural settings
they are both great shows so watch em'
Both series is basically about the main character having intimate relations with different girls.
Since Amagami follows the structure of the galge it based on, you might find it enjoyable to watch The World God Only Knows, which makes fun of a galge cliche characters.
Both also focuses on particular romance story arcs, although The World God Only Knows is a linear story, while Amagami is playing out each possible story arc you can play thorough in the game.
-They explain each girl in different arc,so you wont get confused
-A boy lucky enough to be surrounded by lots of girls
Both series feature small arcs that deal with the male lead and the female lead for that specific arc and the romance that develops between the two. There's some good comedy, a little bit ecchi and both feature some rather well developed love stories that will leave the viewer happy after each arc. The difference is that Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai ties all the smaller arcs together into one larger overall plot and in Amagami SS the story, for the most part, resets after each arc. If you liked watching one of them you wont regret trying out the other.
the male lead dates many girls same with kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai
When you watch Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai, you can't help but think of Amagami SS as well as vice versa. These two series has many similarities worth noting and should be no surprise once you start watching even from the pilot episode. Now, let's break down what sort of similarities they share:
*Both series have one main male protagonist involved in complicated relationships with various female characters in the series of contrasting personalities
*Both series has a lot of comedy, drama, and of course romance
*Both series has a school setting where many of the events takes place
*Both series are divided into separate arcs focusing on the main male protagonist with other various characters
*Both series has love challenges so as such expect drama, misunderstandings, jealousy, and other factors that are common in a typical relationship between a guy and a girl.
Both the Protagonist can Conquer all the Heroine..
Both are divided in arcs,
Best girl always wins when every girl wins.
Both anime have the main character falling in love with many different girls. Both anime have the girl they fell in love with forget about everything (technically since the story changes). Amagami SS is designed like a dating sim, where the main character falls in love with character to character and goes on.
Both have the same story around an MC who takes different paths about relationships that go along with the plot, the differences are that an MC will restart at the same point as a relationship ends and the other is always followed by the plot as the MC conquers a girl.
