Ano Natsu de Matteru Episode 1 Discussion
Jan 9, 2012 9:46 AM
THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
The design is amazing and the setting is gorgeous I find. The romantic confession story was artistically nicely shown with the light.There is even fan service in this series. Such as the bath part in the spoiler
So indeed fan service is nice. It’s not really full blown but kind of melds in. Add to that the romantic kiss,
and it looks lovely. Only thing that bothers me is the Sci-fi stuff or is Ichika an alien with super tech? In fact I found out some clues now, according to the following in the ED,
Ichika is 100% an alien. In fact from the looks of the following spoiler
That is her ship’s impact. It looked to do 2 entries to slow down those 2 rings followed by impact itself which was too much. As a result Kaito got killed/severely wounded in the spoiler
Remon in the spoiler
Right next to my computer space. I hope to see very much more of her and that she finds love. Other than that looking good so far. I never seen the girls designs like those so it's a plus. I think it shall be a nice slice of life with drama, blood, fan service and most of all a serious tone with all that. It looks like setting has the country side feel. Romance looks to be a nice factor but I am not sure it will live up to the Ef saga despite this series being original itself. Despite that it will be interesting solely for the alien stuff and that makes 2 alien series. YES! I wished to have more of those. Mainly due to missing this series:
Guess my wish came true in 2 ways. Very happy! May edit later.

Hoppy said:I checked that and I have to agree but an older Fubuki version.
Remon is a very good character, she's a lot like Fubuki from Baby Princess and definitely the same bust size.
Must be one factor why I like her because I liked very much Fubuki in that series.

Cirris said:Interesting remarks in the spoiler however I call it a bliss that this anime has a rather serious tone and original characters not being done in anime. At least their design. I can say for sure Ano Hana did not have a serious tone like this one for sure. In the blood department.
Someone said Ano Natsu is like Onegai Teacher wrapped in an Ano Hana art style. Holy crap no kidding!! I totally got that vibe watching this.
The similaries i see between Ano Hatsu and Onegai Teacher....
The only real differences in the characters is the fact that the red head alien is a classmate instead of a teacher and they dropped the one male side character. Everything else is almost the same: the skittish lanky long haired girl having a crush on the male friend, the boisterous male friend, the one blue haired girl looking like she has unrequited feelings towards the MC, the manipulative monotone loli girl, the naive red head alien being attracted to the MC. There are so many similarities. It feel almost feels plagiarized at this point.
Whats even better is the MC sounds a lot like Jintan from Ano Hana instead of Kei-kun from Onegai Teacher, which is a huge plus in my book. Kei crying " Sensei" all the time got on my nerves.

Wow, a decent J.C. Staff series (not counting Kimi to Boku) since Toradora with really good production values thankfully not too much fanservice but that kiss was kinda wtf..and that pink leaf thing that was in Ichika's bag.
Man winter is looking much more stronger than Spring right now tbh (except Fate/Zero part 2!!!), the OP and ED were wonderful especially how the OP looked like a home movie which was really creative and definitely cool.

I'm calling the best show of the 2012 season. I cannot possibly comprehend how they are going to drop this ball. I got the same checklist you got, I've marked them all in the plus column.
Toradora and AnoHana and Onegai with this wonderful hint of something otherworldly. This Ugly Yet Beautiful World, perhaps?

I think this would have been a much better premise if it didn't have A FUCKING ALIEN in it.
Goddamn it, I swore myself off JC Staff shows yet I'm watching this. I know damn well I'm going to be disappointed and angry when I'm done with this but I guess I'm a masochist or something. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and I'm gonna predict this will have a lousy ending and it will be another pointless show that never went anywhere. I hope that my prediction is correct when this show ends in 3 months otherwise I'm gong to feel like an idiot if it turns out to be "the greatest love story ever told v.2" or something.
^Couldn't have put it any better myself~
I don't mean to be a Scrooge, but after the first six minutes, I had already figured out that this wasn't going to be my cup of tea. (After all, I wasn't a big fan of AnoHana, either, and it certainly doesn't help that this is an exact replica of that spliced with elements from Onegai Teacher.)
