Ano Natsu de Matteru is a very strange show. It contains elements that have been done over time again and again. The story seems quite standard: mystery girl from space appears, main character falls in love with space girl leaving behind the short blue haired girl to uselessly follow the main character. You can tell quite a bit about the show from the first episode giving you a clear insight and understanding for this 12 episode series.
It's obvious that even though there is to be a love triangle going on, Kaito will fall in love with the blue haired girl (because the red haired
girl is from space and will have to leave by the end of the show). The shy hot girl will fall for the hot guy with glasses, and Lemon will be left to wallow in pity for eternity. I already feell like I've known Lemon my entire life and for this I have rated the story a 6.
In terms of art and animation I feel that these are very important aspects to anything. That's why I don't watch anything older than 5 years old because animation quality suffered greatly due to technology being very bad. The very simplistic style of the art helps improve the smoothness of the animation making it seem more realistic. In addition, the opening and ending sequences aren't that good. I am giving the art a 9.
Next is sound. If you have ears this will be an easy show to appreciate. I made sure to turn off my monitor while I watched the first episode (the only episode out) again and it was just a whole new experience for me. I felt like I was there with the characters. But the song for the opening is bad and the ending one is okay. I gave sound a 5.
Now we have come to characters. The main character looks exactly like Jinta from Ano Hana. This makes me believe that this is just a parallel universe from that show. The red haired girl, Ichika, shares a name with the male protagonist from Infinite Stratos. I would like her to make me eat it, if you know what I mean. She also has large breasts which is good for any female character in any kind of show. I don't really like the blue haired girl or Kaito's sister. She seems like a tramp. I give the characters an 8.
I kind of enjoyed watching this show while I did. Especially when I turned my monitor off. So I'm giving it a 10.
Overall I think this is a very good show. They should have picked better songs for the opening and ending sequences though. Some people may think that one episode isn't enough to really go on for reviewing and judging a show (or anything for that matter). But that's all bull poopy. You can easily tell that this show may or may not be the best show of 2012 (or even of all time). So if you enjoy watching anime, I would recommend this show to you for sure. If you don't like watching anime, then you may or may not want to watch this show or read anime reviews.
6 is my favorite number so I am going to give this show an overall rating of 6. Now I feel content with this show in its entirety and don't have to watch the remaining 11 episodes that have yet to air. My duty to my fellow anime watchers is now complete for today!
Oh, and by the way, read the plot synopsis. It's at the top of the page for this show. You don't have to read the synopsis' that other people write in their reviews because people's opinions are like, just their opinions man.
