& here's the first heroine Haruka, with quite the choice in swim wear.



Her eyes are seriously her best feature imo. So stunning and yet so dirty. :3

No, it's a series of romance stories featuring the same protagonist, with each story being an alternate possible reality. I don't think you can have a harem if there aren't multiple characters after a protagonist at a time... but I guess maybe that's just my definition.

They really made her eyes stand out more in the anime, compared with the game version. Her eyes are just a blueish grey in the game while they are bright blue in her anime version. The change was for the better though

I wonder if there's a significance to all those wind turbines. They're quite commonplace, and maybe there really isn't anything special about them, but there are a few shots of them from time to time, between scenes and so on.

As for the episode itself, I think it's a good start... pretty solid for the most part. Haruka immediately brightens whatever scene she's in—a perfect fit for her voice actress. Kaoru also caught my attention, and I'm looking forward to that playful attitude of hers.

Poor Tachibana though. The guy practically got friendzoned. That's one nasty situation to be in, but maybe there's still some hope yet.

See, look what you've done XD I had Spaghetti on my to-cook list (part of my rehab, I need to eat different kinds of food from time to time) for lunch, and so I'm cooking the noodles and staring at the pot, I said "that hair..." and then I'm eating the spaghetti, and I look at my plate and then "that hair...", and then I'm like lookin at the left over noodles in the pot and I'm trying to hold myself from dunking my head into that pot and scream "THAT HAIR!!!" as if she needed more talk about her hair

I can see it now, once her arc comes around "Kaorutron" is going into that ever growing list of my nicks

Well, at least there'll be some diversity or some sort throughout the following months. I sure could've used something like Amagami last season

That hair.

Honestly, why don't we ever have two male leads that are both "likeable." (No i'm not talking about whats his face with the porn mag, because he obviously has no chance at romance in this series. The standard "side-character for laughs." Man I wanna vomit at this utter garbage.)
We will. Bakuman. To avoid spoilers that's all I'll say.

A pretty decent episode. So itr seems like each heroine will get a 4 episode focus and end up with the hero and then the story will reset itself. Similar to Kimikiss manga. Personally I think such adaptation is better than Kimikiss anime one with a very generic drama attempts thrown in (and the major fail of Kimikiss anime in terms of sales just prove that it wasn't the best way top covert the game).

I think such way is much better than trying to force everything into a singular plotline. The danger of this way is that each heroine will only have 4 episodes which can make the characters and the plot make rather flat and rushed.

At least they'll have at least 3-4 for them, unlike a certain show last season where 1 character got shafted in the most shaftable way a harem candidate can get (sure it was 12 eps to 20+, but still, the possibilities!). Of course the downside being we know there will be at least 4, but the fun part is seeing how the 4 gets used. With the great part about that being they'll be all shown equally at least.

A few years ago, they always showed jet planes in the sky (contrails) when they wanted to be wistful, cool, and future-oriented. I get the feeling wind power turbines are the new "jet airplanes" for such feelings.

Ah, those good ol' jet planes... That's a good comparison, I think.

Well, I would certainly love to live in a town or in some part of the city with such things. There is indeed a calming and peaceful charm to them.

The way she turned him down was still pretty damn playful of her. I mean by those lines you can tell there's more to this, though he didn't it seems.

This is mostly why I'm going to watch Amagami. Even though its story, characters, and settings are as familiar as any harem VN or anime, this one takes a different approach. It takes a "what if..." look at the various different paths the main male protagonist will take. I like it because it's different for that fact alone. It's something I'd wish other harem animes would take instead of the one girl scenario throughout where you would immediately figure out who he'd end up with before the end of the series.

Something different is nice. It's why I enjoyed True Tears and KimiKiss at the same time, they were a little different and the stories were realistic. What can I say? I'm a sucker for love stories, especially good ones.

Wouldn't it be nice to know "what if" Tomoya ended up with each of the different girls of Clannad instead of just Nagisa? We got Tomoyo and Kyou, but it'd be nice to see the others.

Or how about Rin of shuffle?

This omnibus approach is nice because for people like myself don't get a chance to play Japanese-exclusive VNs unless you're fluent in Japanese to play them. I know I'll probably be unable to play Amagami unless I know and understand Japanese fully.

From the looks of it after episode 1, definitely looking forward to Tsukasa Ayatsuji's story for some reason I haven't figured out yet. She just seems like a nice girl from her outward appearance.

Also, I can't get enough of the OP song, it's so calm and the melody is catchy. Hopefully the single comes out soon. I actually ended up ripping the audio and converted it to an MP3 to listen to. XD

First episode

Well I did my GIFs of this one here: http://francismeunier.blogspot.com/2...pisode-01.html of which I am sure like I said in my BLOG people will have perverted ideas just with this scene:

The 2 girls that I like are: Rihoko and Sae. Mostly because Rihoko has the wild looks I like and Sae's shy side is for me=> My problem is the wuss type Junichi is while confessing so fast I was like simply because I knew he was going to be rejected.

That was way too fast but nice planetarium design he did. Another problem would be Miya and I detection of a brother complex. Did you all see how she reacted with her brother suddenly liking Haruka. She also calls him Nii-nii. I don't know about you all but I get brother complex vibes. Tsukasa also looks interesting the way she goes around. Umehara looks to me the typical perverted friend. Would be interesting to see how he helps out Junichi. Kaoru......looks to me the tomboy type but also the wild type a little.

Finally this whole series looks like Kimi Kiss and Hatsukoi. The only difference that is amazing and makes me would be the realism and serious depth it offers. The girls look much more gorgeous and captivating. Also.......hope the fan service does not go over board......we all know it can ruin some series if it's too much.......looking at you Seikon no Qwaser!
Forgot to mention something.....Junichi you got so rejected right here =>

Well nice to see another familiar face join in on the Amagami SS train

For once, I too am hoping this series doesn't go overboard with the fanservice/ecchi stuff. I... would like some kids in the future to be able to look back to this series, you know

Yeah I know.......it was so obvious with Junichi thinking stuff and that soap bar part..... I know.....I would love kids to see things of romance like this but so far only Clannad gets in that part......this might be good for 15 years and up....Clannad....even 10 years old is good.

Also give me the manga link in my profile and also is the game like a 18 over thing? If so direct to some pics of it in PM if you want and yeah.....so busy with farming but doing catch up on the GIFs!
