Yamada is a shy second-year high school girl who is a member of the greenery committee. Kase from the class next to hers is a beautiful girl who is the ace of the school's track team. As a result of the morning glories planted by Yamada, the distance between the two people who have never exchanged words shrinks little by little.
Kimi no Hikari: Asagao to Kase-san. is a promotional video of Hiromi Takashima's Asagao to Kase-san. manga, the first installment of the Kase-san Series. It features Hanako Oku's song titled "Kimi no Egao (album ver.)" from the 2012 album good-bye.
Kimi no Hikari was first released on the YouTube channel of Anime Pony Canyon on May 7, 2017. It was later bundled as a Blu-ray disc with Apron to Kase-san., the fourth manga volume in the series, on July 25, 2017.
It's a promotional video of a manga, so don't expect anything. I rated it a horrible 3/10 because I rated it based on the same factors that I use to rate other animes.
There's no story, which makes sense considering this is a promotional video, it's not supposed to spoil any part of the story. Anyways, there is no development. The whole anime is just 2 girls spending time together. There's a short part in which we are shown a dramatic scene which I'm sure makes perfect sense in the manga, but in here it's an isolated scene, and we are not provided with any context,
so it kind of comes off weird, stupid, and pointless?
Same things with the characters, the video shows off nothing more than "cuteness". I liked the short haired girl tho, cause I have a fetish for masculine females, but yeah, it didn't really make the characters any better.
A decent song which provides you with a pleasant mood while watching this completely pointless OVA that felt like an AMV, which it kind of was, or not really, who cares...
So why am I even writing this review? Why do we do anything at all? Does anything even matter?
If there's one thing you can take out from this review, it's the fact that I'm attracted to masculine females.
Well, for my first review i wanted to pick something simple and here i go.
From my opinion it is something like trailer or AMV I don't even think it's worth watching, but what you want from preview which is 6 minutes long. There is nothing but little cuteness and pretty decent animation, I rate it as any other anime because it's my style but even if I give it so low score then you might watch it. After all it's only 6 minutes so what can you lose? At least you have another title on your MAL and you can happily continue to another anime.
Tired of watching 12 episode shows and getting frustrated because of the "go read the manga lol" endings? Well look no further! This anime is a promotional video for the manga from which it's based from, and boy does it get the job done.
The whole thing is aesthetically pleasing, the animation is nothing special, but the stuff like character design and background art are forceful. From watching this I'd definetly start reading the manga if I wasn't doing so already. The music is your generic mellow J-Pop song, but I honestly wouldn't expect any other type of music from something like this.
The only real problem
is that although it classifies as "anime", it doesn't really have much substance by itself, it only really works because it's just a promotional video.
Bottom line, as an anime, is meh, but as promotional video (which it's the only thing this should be considered as) it's pretty damn good. And in the vain of promotion, go read the manga! It's a cute and lovely yuri manga with some melodrama here and there, definetly worth your time.
