The story follows Risa, a girl with zero experience in romance. Meanwhile, a boy named Yuugure is the most popular student in Risa's school year. Even though the two have had no contact with each other in the past, they find themselves at school at the same time one night.
The main characters are the who girl and the popular boy who have never talked before, but one day they do and start becoming friends.
It's one big cliché, but I think that cliché animes and mangas can be good if well produced. Is this the case here? Absolutely not.
It's just a rushed anime because some team decided to turn, I don't know, maybe 30 chapters of the manga into a less than 20 minutes anime. Everything happens way too fast that you can't connect to the characters, their friendship, the romance... basically to anything. It could
have potential if it was a 1-cour series, we don't know.
Furthermore, the art is not fantastic enough to make the OVA enjoyable. And it's way too sparkly, so it's not everyone's cup of tea. Sound has absolutely nothing memorable.
Anyway, as a shoujo fan, it''s nothing painful to watch, but if you're not a fan of the genre (or not used to it) and/or is expecting quality, go watch something else.
This is my first review so it probably won't be the best. So, what i thought of Nagareboshi Lens was it seems really interesting. I thought they could of done WAY better for the first episode because it never explained how they got together but they'll probably explain it in episode two.
I find this anime VERY cute and it reminds me SO MUCH of kimi ni todoke which i love. The characters are interesting but sometimes it's pretty cliche and predictable.
Story line is getting there it's pretty good.
Art, it's really different big eyes and modern clothing.
Music, i like it, it has that kind of
slow but nice sound to it.
Enjoyment, it reminds me so much of kimi ni todoke so i find it enjoyable.
Overall if you're looking for an anime that's cute interesting and dramatic i think Nagareboshi Lens is what you're looking for.
Well...what should I say about this OVA?Too rushed!!!!!!!!!!!!! I recommend you all to read the manga first because I swear it's better and you will enjoy youself more!
Story : 7
Well, the story itself is very beautiful and warming about the development of two middle schoolers which fell in love for the 1st time (in manga).
Judging by the fact the OVA is only 18 minutes, you barely get a thing of what's going on there.
Art : 4
Quality 0.The artwork is, in my own opinion, somewhere between so-so and terrible,I don't like it at all!!! I mean, it's as if you're playing a dating sim on
a video game console . Compared with mangaka's impeccable artwork, this OVA is a dissapointment. I firstly thought it is a fan work because it didn't seem professional at all (for example, the characters's hair color : the 'light' it is spread in all directions which it makes it look unnatural).
The character's moves are stiff (that's maybe because the scenes are TOOO short -> for example : he helps her tying her hair up and 2 seconds later he hugs her tightly and after another 2 seconds he's gone. I was like "wtf?"I mean, it should have been doki-doki and warm.Instead, it feels like I watched a magic trick...you see a scene, you clap, another scene. If I wouldn't have read the manga, I swear I'd be dumbfounded the whole episode)
Character : 5
As I said, the artwork is kind of disappointing and , in my opinion, that's a minus for a character development in those 18 minutes of this OVA.
The characters doesn't trasmit anything, especially their eyes.They seemed empty...completely opposite of manga.
Enjoyment : 2
The company which worked for this episode should have reconsidered making an 13 episode anime instead of an OVA.It's a waste of time to watch this, really...
Overall : 4
I expected more of this series but well,that's it. Please,instead, read the manga!It's very beautiful!
The best way to approach the short and sweet 流れ星レンズ (SHOOTING STAR☆LENS) anime is as a long commercial for the manga.
Shown at Ribbon Festa 2012, this animated short is targeted at readers of the manga. It takes for granted that you already know what is happening and why and will be delighted to see and hear already beloved characters coming to life.
If you are not a reader of the SHOOTING STAR☆LENS manga (as I currently am not) you may be disappointed with this brief glimpse. We are not told how our hero and heroine started dating. We are not shown
any conflict between them. It is truly a small slice of their lives and may seem too mundane to hold your attention.
I sought out this anime because I was intrigued by the highly stylized art and I do enjoy that aspect of it. Its real hold on my affection though is because in its everyday ordinariness it perfectly captures school life in Japan. If you have taught or studied at a Japanese public school, this short will prove extremely 懐かしい (full of fond memories).
If you were in middle school (in any country) over twenty years ago, this little anime may prove too adorable for words. It perfectly captures what makes young love so sweet and yes, a tiny bit silly. It's not a comedy by any means but it's hard to not chuckle at the emotional gravity given to things such as an exchange of love tokens. Presenting these moments with utter sincerity gives SHOOTING STAR☆LENS both its psychological realism and its charm.
