Quote:
Ketsuekigata-kun, the manga about anthropomorphized blood types, is inspiring a television anime that will premiere on April 7. In Japan, some people believe that blood types are linked to personalities; to them, people with Type A blood are reliable, Type B blood signifies passionate people, Type O blood indicates those with an independent streak, and Type AB people are capricious.

My internet social circle sometimes posts these, so I've read some of the strips, but frankly didn't know this was of Far East origin until I see this thread.

The concept is weird in a interestingly good way, but what makes me excited even more is the excellent cast held by FukuJun, Nakamura, Ishida and Kakihara, which leads to my potential watch list !

BTW, my blood type is A, so I'll go for FukuJun.

My kind is voiced by Simon. That's strangely appropriate.

Oh look, another anime centering around a single trivial and idiotic Japanese cultural quirk. Who actually believes this superstitious trash? Oh wait, Japanese people, of course.

Yes, you managed to miss the point that the original series (done by a Korean) is basically a humorous take on the idea, putting the stereotypes in various situations. I believe we have someone intolerant over here.

Capricious Type AB spotted

I wish I knew what blood type I was. I donated blood once in September 2011 and they said they would send me my donor card in about six weeks, but they never did. :/

Was this really something worth grumbling about? Plenty of cultures use stupid superstitions, and plenty of them take it seriously. Silly Scorpio, watch out for ladders and black cats.

Usually, if I want to enlighten myself with Japanese culture, I prefer either a more wholesome premise that shows various facets of culture, or offhand jokes/comments that come naturally.

Anime like Kamichu and Natsume Yuujinchou are excellent for this; gods and youkai may be superstitions, but they can easily lead to exciting stories. Individual episodes of anime like Tanabata episodes or school festival episodes are cliches (and they can get annoying here and there), but they usually don't dominate a whole anime and they have a lot of culture to make use of.

I just can't muster much interest when looking at premises that take *one* tiny aspect of Japanese culture and appear to center the entire series around it. Like this show, and also that one show about the little sister who comes from Osaka with the whole making fun of Kansai people thing. These might be decent ideas for a one-shot or something, but a full-length series sounds like stretching it.

Not to mention, it's extremely Japanese in nature. If you have to explain to me why I should find the B-type character's actions funny (and I'm sure that would be the case for most of us on ASuki), then I'm obviously not versed well enough in Japanese culture to qualify for watching the anime.

I'd like to clarify that I'm not necessarily expecting this to be a bad anime. I'm just not that excited from the premise and I feel that it might be over my level.

On the plus side, that's one awesome voice cast!

I think you missed the point..... It's a Korean comic that is getting animated in Japan, and the actions of the blood types done are what makes this comical.

You'll see how funny it is when you see it. I enjoyed the original greatly, and can't wait to see how the Japanese twist will make this enjoyable in its own way.
