Amagami SS – first impressions

July 4, 2010 at 8:27 pm 9 comments

“Maybe I’ll try again. The feelings I lost two years ago, at that time I tried to recover them…”

The 6 hotties Tachibana will be picking up~

If Morishima-senpai says “you’re really nice” again, I will freaking slap my face silly. Kidding, of course. Amagami SS actually turns out to be a pretty decent watch, if you cast aside the many clichéd bullets that riddle this body!

Your regular cutey ❤

For starters, the male lead isn’t a total douche. He’s actually tried confessing before *SHOCK HORROR* – it just so happens that wasn’t so successful, and it’s put him off significantly. Secondly the animation is actually not bad at all~ The character models look great, and even some minor details like a girl playing with her nails during class are animated.

Your air-headed klutz

Generally the voice actors do a good job with their characters. Morishima Haruka aka Katsura Hinagiku (think combat butlers foo’) aka Itou Shizuka does a good school idol (heck, she’s always voicing popular characters). However the exaggerated cutesy squeakiness of Rihoko and Sae probably drive dogs mad. I definitely wouldn’t expect a memorable soundtrack from this series.

So they kept hair colour normal in this series... yet they still gave her blue eyes...

I’m not sure how many episodes this series will take. Some say 12, others reckon it’ll go 2-cour, designating 4 episodes per hottie. One thing’s for sure, if time ‘resets’ after each girl’s arc, I will be annoyed. It does no good to the drama, disjoints the viewers and very few series have managed to pull it off successfully.

Tachibana - can he handle the heat?

Anyway, Amagami SS turned out better than expected. While it’s chockablock full with clichés, I hate to admit that this will probably  be one of my guilty pleasures this season.

OP: “I love you from my heart. I love you forever with you.” – ’nuff said.

ED: Pretty suiting tune actually. I think it’s good that each seiyuu will sing the song in due course. Otherwise pretty average.

You ride him, Morishima-senpai~!

    I did not like this a lot. Then it’s probably just me. I must note though, Morishima’s eyes are TOOO blue!

    I’m glad to see the show not loaded with the usual ecchi moments. The characters are soft to my eyes at least… and are somewhat believable. Morishima is quite the odd character though; hopefully she has some dramatic past.

    If anything, I will remember that Tachibana has that awesome planetarium and was brave enough to confess on the first episode.

    ecchi moments would’ve ruined the show. we’ll probably be exposed to Morishima’s past judging by what can be seen in the preview.

    i think the planetarium is awesome too!

    I felt sorry for the main character. It felt like he got played and already owned twice in the first episode. =/

    i hated the show, watching it was just an excruciating experience. generic plot, cliched supporting cast, but most of all morishima came off as a b*tch to me. furthermore, the main character is bland as hell. no personality, no charm, not likable, not even dislikable. i’ll try it out a bit longer before rejecting it outright but as of now, seems like a VERY bland and boring show. i’ll give it one point though, the animation is decent.

    I kinda like it. It had that Kimi Kiss feel to it and gives nostalgia of highschool life. Although the color isn’t as vibrant as Kimi kiss. The colors used remind me more of “School Days”. I hope this anime doesn’t finish with a NICE BOAT ending though. Hehe!
