Sooooo~ Dakaichi review…

I totally didn’t know until a few months ago that this got an adaptation-
I definitely remember trying to read the translated scans for this manga a few years ago but my interest fell due to the dropping quality of the scans (and the fact that the project was dropped for a long time)- that being said, I clearly remember the very first chapter of the manga and it felt like it wasn’t an exact match to what I saw in the first episode here (like crucial parts being omitted). The manga readers can definitely sense the difference- some fans didn’t like it, read more

I must say, this anime is definitely one to take a serious look at. At first, when I was going to dive into it, the score was a 7.20~ish so I decided to let it ride for a little more time. When it rose to 7.41+, I decided to start- and when I did, I couldn't stop!

The animation isn't totally consistent, but not to the point where it's a bother. The style is pretty retro, like early 2000’s retro, but with the modern clarity it's very enjoyable. Loving the op theme and bgm, has a jazzy feel to it; in contrast the ed is read more

The first story absolutely captivated me and prompted me to keep watching! I don't mind horror so much but I needed a little bit of thriller and decided to watch this.

(I know nothing about that which this was adapted from, keep that in mind)
The story is mainly unified through the main character when he finds business to do, in other words it's almost like an episode to episode story. Each individual story has a specific universal theme attached to it and sub characters in a predicament.

The art style was beautifully done! The 3dcgi goes virtually unnoticed because of the unique style of bright colors read more

This was a show I decided to watch on a whim on a day where I didn't have much to do… it turned out to be a very good decision. It left a good impression on me, and after the second episode I just had to keep watching it straight through because it kept you wandering what would happen next, even if you knew the possibilities. I've read a few bl's here and there where a guy wants to be a girl and all kinds of drama unfolds. To be honest that's what attracted me to this show, but the reverse about the girl wanting read more

I never thought I'd like this show as much as I did…at first it seems really mediocre but as it goes on, it's a very comedic and beautiful anime. It's a bit of a fujo-bait series for a shounen (coming from a fujoshi herself), but it doesn't stop you from enjoying it.

There's no real plot, instead there's just that episode to episode flow (mostly) and it gives a laid-back sort of slice-of-life feeling. Perfect for watching when you're bored or feeling melancholy, it picks you up a little. They way the human-yokai relationship thing is explained through the trials also gives it a nice feeling.

At first, I was a little skeptical, yet really curious as to how this show would play out with its theme. As a shoujo, many people would expect it to just be "blah" about it and everything turns out well: WELL LETS JUST SAY this: while some pretty predictable things do happen, it's the way it happens and how it happens that make this a pretty memorable show.

The art style (in addition to the genre) was what attracted me to this show, and it didn't disappoint either. The small town/country setting sets it aside from most other similar anime and gives off a relaxed read more

As a collector and reader of the manga of this series, I was really excited when the anime came out… but at this point, if I were to refer this to anyone I'd tell them to read the manga first. I feel like the adaptation went well but not as well as it could have went.

For the story, as it happens in lots of adaptations of any manga, the sequence of the plot changes a little and that can be quite a put-off. Some of the original story isn't even adapted and others are either short or expanded. It feels like episode to episode, read more

The synopsis needs to be rewritten.
I'm a bit of a sucker for shojo stuff and I knew what to expect going into this when it aired. Overall, it is pretty enjoyable.

The art is great and the animation is clear. 3dcgi don't mix well with 2d in my opinion, but the way it was done in this show makes it worth it. The prop designs aren't totally unique, but then again not many are these days. The feeling of the art brings you into the world of the show.

The theme songs relate well to the feel of the show, too. And *cough* my read more
