I don't know about you guys but the last ep gave me alot of goosebumps.

Especially when Yoichi said something to the fox guy and that something is just a simple sentence that made the fox guy give up.

I mean ... just WOW.

I know that series with only 12 eps usually rush things but ... this one is just too fast.

a season wouldnt be a bad thing. But theres just a few things that irk me.

1) the maceball punching gloves... lame.
2) Taking the more sexy outfits in the manga and simplifying them.
3) left out sum good jokes from the manga when they made certain episodes.

but beyond that it was still ok. 7/10

I might rewatch a few later.

oh. -side note-

anyone else notice how the eldest sister replaced yoichi in the ED tongue.gif and even there pick placement in the group shot got switched laugh.gif

Although it might end up like how the Rasario+Vampire anime turned out. I mean that was a textbook "I don't want to use the manga even though it's an awsome story and rather place blatent fanservice for no reason." It just irks me when anime companies tend to maime a good manga series. I mean this had/has potentail, and I haven't even read the manga as of yet.

Actually comparing to Rosario+Vampire, it is the opposite in this case. I have read the Ashita no Yoichi manga, and I have to say in the early stages of the manga, it's main focus is just echii and fanservice, so in terms of story telling, the anime is actually better than the manga for a change.

But to be fair, the mangaka/author has shown significant improvement on the characters, relationship developments, story-telling as well as artwork in the more recent chapters. I have read many manga, but the manga of Ashita no Yoichi is the one that particularly stand out which I noticed how hugely the author improved and is still quickly improving.

Many people are thinking that the manga was better, this is my opinion.

The anime is like a compressed version. Got the main idea, can't summarized everything.

The manga is like an expanded version. Fan-services, slow character development.

I think they did a good job, not so boring like other shonen crap because they only got 12 EPs.

The manga is not limited, so the manga is more detailed and more character development. They can't be compared at the first.

I read the manga, and I know that they cut lots of thing off, but what really did you expect for a 12 EP series ? They can't put all of em in, they had to get only the main idea of the story.

what happened to torigaya anyway? magical transformed girl/guy? that's torigaya on washizu vision right? hahaha.... and becoming a chibi.... what was that all about? hahaha.... i just don't get it

In the manga, Torigaya is also reverted back a child like around the same age as Kagome. It's not explained why and how...it's just one of those comic-relief thing which "if you question it, you lose" kind of tsukkomi laugh.gif As for turning into a girl, that's just taking the joke on the "mystery of Torigaya" gag further on the anime part.

Yeah !! It also give lot of question about Torigaya. What exactly is he or she or whatever. My jaw drop when I see the ending of Wa-san vision ..... WTH. ph34r.gif

For first, I thought that Torigaya have many sibling same face like him. Each of them familiar to Was-san. After I see the scene of shoujo version of Toragaya ..... I at lost then. laugh.gif

About the last it touching a bit since it become drama then. Although, Ibuki interrupt my feeling a bit with her return nature of beating Yoichi. But I'm glad for her return though.

Nice series for light of comedy. cool.gif

maybe it's an implication for a second season, if asu no yoichi was successful in japan.

well, since there is a manga, perhaps she did appear in the manga.

i don't think it's torigaya, there really is no reason to hide his face(eyes), if they planned to show him in the same episode in fan-srevice form. ^^

The only thing comes to mind would be a tiwn sister that likes wearing a cat hood. I mean the voice is similar but a bit more imature to be the same person. It's just speculation, but this makes me want to give up and just read he manga due to the fact they probably won't do a second season. Just in case of course.

Yea. This 'person' only appeared in the anime for the first time, so everyone should stop confusing yourself.

I was actually really disappointed with the last episode when they show "this person." Although I didn't expect much out of a short anime adaptation for this, I was certainly hoping for not a cruddy ending, but I ended up getting one. It simply felt like the series didn't have a conclusive feeling. I was at least hoping for some development in Yoichi's relationship with one of the sisters (particularly with Ibuki), but all I saw was a rushed ending and very messy while at it with things popping in left and right. Now if I wasn't reading the manga, I would be confused like no other, but the fact that that I am actually irritates me more that the adaptation was overall poor.

haven't even tried reading the manga but will have to. Some said it was a disastrous ending but non-manga readers like myself think the ending was rushed in one final episode as well. After years of watching animes, episode 12 could have been broken into episode 13 as well.
But I do have a feeling we're going to see season 2.

I don't know why but how they rushed in the last two episodes and how she suddenly got her memories back without an antidote made it to convient at cheesy. I mean tey left too much info out and also the main reason why Yoichi gets beaten to a pulp. I guess they didn't want to show how much of a pervert he really was. Although they have to show something like tat or her yanderie side doesn't make much sense.

So from an A (passing) to an F (failing) rank this thing pulls a horrible D+

I mean it could of been better even for 12 episodes. It's not close enough to say there was no such thing as this anime though sinc eit had its good moments though.

Ok... I am glad I was not the only one confused. That last episode turned me upside down. Based off of what everyone had posted after my last post, then they should not have introduced this "unseen" "fist-time" appearance person in his "washizu vision".

Posted 30 November 2009 - 12:19 AM

I did a marathon on this series just now.......did all 12 episodes today. tongue.gif

It was another okay anime.....not great and its one of those animes where I adore the side characters rather than the 2 main characters......my favs where of course Ayame-chan, Angie-chan and Wa-san. Ibuki just pissed me off throughout the whole show. dry.gif I like the possibility of a AyamexWassan pairing and it would be awesome if it actually happens...........man I really lovew my tsunderes. tongue.gif laugh.gif biggrin.gif

There is a possiblity of a 2nd season and if it was going to be the case, they can release a 2nd season because there is like over 6 volumes worth of manga material that wasn't used in the 1st season of the anime. rolleyes.gif

I did give it a 8 originally but towards the end of the show, it got a tad boring. Hence, this series gets a 7/10 from me.

Rant on the Quality: -

The vid quality of the episodes from 9 to 12 was crappy compared to the ones released by AniYoshi.....CoalGuys-Doremi did a decent job of subbing but the raw they used to encode was of a pretty bad vid quality.....I guess I can't blame them as the RAWs that were being released.......ahhhhhhhhhhhh.......the vid's quality wasn't very colourful or crisp......it pretty much drowned the show for me. So, listen kids...........never watch crap copies.....damn I wish I watched the Chihiro version, it could possibly have had better vid quality. mad.gif   mad.gif   mad.gif   blink.gif   ph34r.gif rolleyes.gif
