Ame-iro Cocoa: Rainy Cocoa Goes to Hawaii!! Nozomu Tokura, who is Aoi's older brother, is appointed as the manager of the Hawaii store. With more new characters, will he be able to open up the store there successfully?
It's hard to get all that worked up over an obviously cheaply produced anime such as Rainy Cocoa in Hawaii. The series is banking on cute boys doing cute things and that's basically the only thing it's concerned about regarding the show.
Although there's really nothing here to recommend (unless you just NEED to burn twenty-five or so minutes), there are two things that this series does better than at least the very first Rainy Cocoa. The first is that there actually is a hint of substance. In the original short the characters were not only flat as a board but seemingly had no goal,
motivation, or drive to do anything much at all. It was very flat and not the least bit entertaining even as cute boy/yaoi fluff. This season has the main character actually striving to set up the second shop for the owner; so while still not very compelling or explored upon it at least sets up a driving goal and an ending for the show.
The second is that the limited budget must have been increased, because we are no longer in just one room anymore. Hawaii actually receives quite a few decent backgrounds as characters travel around to either explore or to do things to set up the shop. It's still fairly limited in its backgrounds but there's a clear bit more effort her than last time.
Even with all this in mind, I still wouldn't recommend this series to anyone who wants to feel even the least bit entertained by a short anime. There are plenty of other fish in the sea, and plenty of other cute boy shows that are worth your time and energy (and cuter boys as well).
I don't really know if they were trying to do this, but I think they went with the 'memory' kind of Anime. Like... Memories that you want to cherish forever. At least, I thought about that when I saw this Anime. They may be short, but it's sweet if you think that it is a memory from Nozomu and that we're watching it in third person what happened when he arrived at Hawaii.
They may be written around boys, but I think it's more behind there like a hidden message for the viewers. I saw a message over friendship that wasn't restricted to age and /
or country, but I also saw happiness and hard work where everyone helped. I'm sorry if my point doesn't get through or that you think this isn't right, but I think that that's the reason why they are short and cut off abrubtly.
I think they are Nozomu's memories when he begun the Café in Hawaii.
