New Anime Series: Mashiro-Iro Symphony

First Episode Review for: Mashiro-Iro Symphony

Summary : A brother and sister start at a school that has only just started admitting boys (that’s a common theme this season) , and with a group of new friends they face the horrors that school life can bring (such as the “help injured animals” club not having enough members)

Animation : Soft cell animation, very nicely done, a real treat for the eyes, the girls in the series are perhaps so perfectly ‘anime’ as to reinforce every stereotype a western viewer would have heard about them (indeed the eyes are so huge, other features are a mere suggestion at times)

Plot Potential: Not sure there is much, it is very slow moving as the is a lot of slow-mo head flicks, hair flicks, skirt flicks etc which tend to get in the way,

Characters: With perhaps the most ridiculous cat/pom pom thing i have ever seen, it’s a cute overload

Music: Soft tinkling piano

Reminds me of: An 80’s clamp anime with all the drama removed

Overall: Quite frankly not even the showiest western vampire series have anything on this when it comes to the world being populated only be beautiful people with long hair, but its a pleasant background to have on and reminds me strangly of having a tropical aquarium tank in the flat (yes yes i know)

Fair point, the reviews are here so people can keep up with that new animes that come out ( i used to have a devil of a time find out out which ones had just been released) so i often miss the point on anime that grow as the episodes progress, i will take your advise and revisit this one

Having Just watched the 12th episode, weird for a guy to admit this, but its my favourite show now.

But that’s coming from someone that has to read the subtitles.
