First Impressions: Bakemonogatari – 01, Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 – 01, CANAAN – 01
The first part of the episode portrays the normality of things like going to school, sibling quarrel, personalities of the kids and the lack of attention of the parents to their kids because of their work. That was too normal and then boom, there’s this earthquake and then the Mirai was separated with her brother because of the earthquake. I think because of the series being near to reality and good characterization I was already attached to the characters. The pacing was fine, it’s neither slow nor fast. The character design on the other hand looks like the one on slice-of-life series like Honey and Clover and because of that, I think, the feel of normality in this series has been emphasized more.
I think this series is very promising and I will be watching it but as for the blogging, I’ll leave it to thingle because I am really busy these days because of school and not so good schedule.
The animation is visually stunning and the detail was also good. P.A. Works really has good animation when they produce series. The main character of the story is Canaan and she reminds me of Shiki not only because of the character design but because her eyes also change colours. Though, I think it was kind of rip off, I’m still inclined in following this series since the story and even Canaan intrigues me even though in the first episode only made a sneak peek on what would be the series is like. I’m also excited of Maaya Sakamoto voicing Alphard and I’m a big fan of hers. I wonder what would be the part of Maria in all of this, I can’t wait to find out.
The OP and the ED song didn’t stick to me and I easily forgot them. The OP sequence on the other hand was quite interesting but the ED sequence I barely noticed it. I hope they’ll insert a Maaya Sakamoto song in this series.
Since it’s only 13 episodes I think I could manage to blog this and I hope I can post it in time.
