Today's my birthday and I think now would be a good time to update my new section. Today I wanted to talk about a series that I just finished, Hatsukoi Limited. I won't go into detail about the series itself, just what I thought of it.



Pros

  • Great character design, the girls are lovely and easy to fall in love with their design.
  • The characters are well developed and found myself very interested in the side stories.
  • I loved how the anime integrated most of the girl's individual stories into one main theme at the end, I found the big picture to be touching. In particular, there is some angsty love between a girl and a guy. Typically this can be overdone in romance comedies (Love Hina) but I never found the girl to be annoying. I just genuinely wanted everything to work out for them.
  • Ecchi aspects of the show aren't overdone and the panty shots are kept to a minimum.
  • The show uses humor effectively but keeps romance the main aspect of the show.
  • Karen will agree, the Christmas special is very sweet.

Cons

  • The only con I can think of is that there wasn't more of it, and that I ended up caring more about the secondary characters over the main love interest.

Overall I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in romance and comedy that is light hearted, mixes ecchi fan service with a characters that are well developed. It left a big smile on my face at the end of the series.

I'm trying to take my website back from my dog. When people get to know me better the quickly learn that I have a lot of hobbies, but the one I'm most passionate about is certainly anime. I love the artistic aspects of anime and how it appeals to you visually and through sound.

So I created this page in an attempt to personalize my site a little bit more. I have plans to talk about various animes that I'm currently watching or have watched. I hope to make it like a quick summary/review of the animes that I watch. Here's hoping I can stick with it!
