It make me sad that not many people has seen this great anime Gekijouban Haikara San ga Tooru Despite being old /classic anime , It really has that historical ,comedy, drama romance that many would want to see.(okay maybe i exaggerated a little bit but it still kinda sad no one willing to do fansub on it). And fortunately i came across it and watch full episode of it with no subtitles . I'm also had seen the 2 movie that being produced last year.

Story 8/10

If I ever took on a personal anime translation project, it would the absolute diamond in the rough, Haikara san ga Tooru はいからさんが通る.

I like historical settings, and the final phase/aftermath of world war 1 could be interesting I thought.

The opening and ending music was pleasing to the ear I think, from the rest I do not remember much. Must have been OK probably.

Some words about the graphical aspects of this animation title. Backgrounds are pretty basic, ...
