Figure skater Tazusa Sakurano is on the fast track to the Olympics. As a top contender, her chances rest on a single competition in Canada. However, during her program, she falls and hits her head on the ice, knocking her unconscious. At the same time, Canadian stunt pilot Pete Pumps goes down in a fiery blaze.

After her devastating failure, Tazusa returns home to Japan, but she starts hearing a voice in her head. In reality, when Pete had arrived at the gates of heaven, he was denied access for his sins. Instead, he was told to wait 100 days and is now trapped in Tazusa's body! Unwilling to let this interrupt her life—even if her body is a bit crowded—Tazusa moves forward with skating, all while a pesky voice may just be able to help her achieve her dream.

Ginban Kaleidoscope is a bittersweet romantic coming of age story about Tazusa, an arrogant figure skater looking to go be Japan's sole Olympic representative.

You'd think that most of the show would be the comedic moments of the manzai between Tazusa and Pete, as well as the occasional ecchi scenes where Pete--havingTazusa's senses--sees ...

If you are looking for a decent Winter themed anime to go along with the PyeongChang event, congratulations! You found one.

Ginban Kaleidoscope was a rewatch for me. Once when it was airing and now many years later as a full marathon. The simplest way to describe it is as one of those shows that is definitely good enough to watch, but just wasn't quite good enough to enter the hall of anime fame. Thus as the years go by, Kaleidoscope fades into obscurity. A shame really, because in terms of actual story line this was one of the best shows of its season.

(Author's Note: This is an old review that I would have written differently now, but I might as well post it on here just because)

One thing you’ll learn upon leaving high school is that everything that happened during that time is utterly meaningless in the adult world. And unless you’re one of those heathens who married his highschool sweetheart without divorcing her in two years time, your first love is one of those things. Pretty soon, you’ll realize that it was nothing special other than being another small experience in your youth, move on, and then date that college chick that’s as smart as she ...
