"Isn't life, by nature, a contest decided by a single round? However trifling the matter, it's not possible to return to the last save point by pushing some reset button." - Kazuki Hoshino, Hakomari, Vol. 1
Huh, the art actually has quite the sunset-y mood. Excellent, now they just need good music and they might actually pull off the atmosphere I'd given up on. Well, at least if the promotional material reflects the show. Very good news, at any rate. The cast doesn't seem half bad either.
Damn them for making the PV unavailable in my country, though. I can't seem to get around this.
I hope they don't screw up Tasogare. The manga is amazingly good, especially from the 2nd volume on, I almost gave it a 9 even. It raises pretty interesting points and it's very intriguing the way they use a supernatural theme to, in a way, prove that supernatural stories/legends/myths are most times (or maybe always) created out of simple yet crucial misunderstandings.
I do fear that they'll exaggerate the ecchi in it, which will put off a lot of people off, so I recommend the manga to everyone since the art is also very good.
I'm not quite sure that I like the character sketches of TOxA for the anime. They appear much younger than they acually are. But I guess I can judge it yet before it out. There are so many little details that could make or break this anime, I hope it turns out. :)
