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!
I like the anime but I LOVED THE MANGA!! (MUST READ THE MANGA!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED IF YOU LIKE KIMI NI TODOKE)
The rating of Nagareboshi Lens may look like a "D+" or almost to "C-", but overall, I watched it and I liked it. It's not as bad as you think it is!! I think everyone should give it a try if you like the shoujo/romance genres, and if you also like those fluffy, heartwarming feelings when you watch an anime. I highly suggest reading the manga(currently ongoing) right after watching this 18 min. OVA. You will not believe how
much stuff that was not included in that eighteen minutes you just watched.
I want to start off with the story: 8
The story is nothing special or extra ordinary than other shoujo romance stories. Both two people(the two obvious ones) live in different worlds because one of them is just plain and the other is the top rank in school. They met eachother, realizing it was love at first sight and then randomly jumped to them saying that they were going for two weeks. In the anime, the story did NOT include: how they actually got together, when they started going out, who asked who and all the other cute stuff ect. ect. That's what bothered me the most. The scene starts off with them meeting eachother then randomly just jumps to them actually going out without any explanations. The next few minutes left of the eighteen minutes is just them doing their own thing. I really do recommend reading the manga. Not only reading the manga fills you in the "plot-holes", there are EXTREMELY cute moments that the anime 100% missed.
Some people hate these kinds of drawings but I love "Chibi"!!(: Im inlove with Risa's hair, eyes, especially her natural blushing cheeks. Yuugure-kuns eyes amaze me. It's just a wow. The art is somehow similar to kimi ni todoke but Nagareboshi Lens's is drawn in the young, middle school stage and KNT is drawn in an older, highschool stage. Their smiles are similar as well. I think the art really sands out in this anime.
Sound isn't bad or good. It's just okay. The character's voice aren't annoying or oblivious, I think that it really suits them and their personality.(:
The characters is what pulled me in this anime. I love those "popular guy liking simple girl" romance/shoujo animes. Lets start off with Risa. Risa is a simple as she can be, curly hair, no experience with love what so ever but she does dream of seeing someone "sparkle". She is best friends with Yuuko, she would always back her up, help voluntarily with school work, and gives advices. Risa is also often shy to tell Yuuko some embarassing things such as(who she likes). Yuugure-kun on the other hand is the total opposite. Yuugure is the most hottest and the most popular guy in school. He is in Class 2 which is on the opposite building as Risa is in. He is known the "Top Rank". Most of the girls have a crush on him. Yuugure has never had a girl friend or first love until recently. Both main characters are both lovable and just really cute. You'll love the characters from the begging to the end. Risa is one of the cutest girl I've ever seen and Yuugure is one of the hottest guy I've ever seen. I've got nothing against these characters!!
I didn't really enjoy the anime as much as I did with the Manga. Eighteen minutes was just rushed and was time consuming. I still wouldn't have thought of making an 18 min. OVA if there were so many plot holes. It was just not right, it's like an incomplete jigsaw puzzle. The anime only had the border of the jigsaw puzzle and picture(all the main events) were missing. I still enjoyed it because it gave me the same "fluffy" feeling that kimi ni todoke gave me. It would have been better if this was turned into a series. it would have been MUCH MUCH better. Watch the anime for the fun of it and read the manga if you're still hooked(which i know you will.)
I did not hate this anime nor love it. Based on the rating, I really thought I'd hate and I prepared myself for the worst but it wasn't. It was quick and it was okay! I guarantee you watch it!! And don't forget to read the manga! Start from the very beginning because there were more things that happened!!(;
