I agree wholeheartedly. I love a series that can bring tears to my eyes. The last episode was not slow, it was just right. And Gotou Yuuko is now on my list of favorites. She hasn't shown more than a centimetre of range, but what a centimetre! The episode was hers, and she made it work. This and Kaede are her break-out performances.

I've added her to Hashihime's Seiyuus Page, with a photo and links to her home page, the ANN page, a voice sample, etc. I've just started that page, so suggestions of all kinds are welcome (hashihime at yahoo dot com). I can't cover all seiyuus, so I'm just covering ones that are busy and that I like. I'll try to find voice samples for as many as possible.

Well... I tend to trust the tastes of Furudanuki and Kaoru Chujo so I'm going to give this series a run.... if for naught else, lazy slice of life series with strong character development are my cup of tea in between the angsty stuff. Right now, only Kamichu meets that need and its on a slow release following the DVDs and due to all the work the subbers put into their releases.
I've got a whiff that the ending is strong so I won't be quite so blindsided as I was for AIR. Here goes <click>.


edit: I've seen the first two episodes...... I love this show.... its just perfect....

Hmmm, there are only twelve episodes in this series? Sigh... that's like "Nightwalker, Midnight Detective", or "Ultimate Girls", nice shows, but, alas, over wayyy too quickly......

I agree with those who enjoy the slower pace and lack of mecha and magic in this show, it is a good demonstration of what anime is really capable of, a good human story! I hope we can see some more like this. Only longer...^_^

Ichigo Mashimaro is another example of pure human, no magic, no mecha series with similar pacing that is quite enjoyable. And if you don't mind a little variation with aliens and kappas, then Peto Peto San is another series that helds similar pacing. I also hear good things about Aria the Animation even though haven't watched it yet myself.

Wonderful series, go find it now Just don't go into it expecting plot of any sort, because there isn't one. It's all about the situation and mood, and is done basically to perfection. Aria is in my top 3 anime of 2005

I'm also quite surprised that Lamune is only 12 eps. I didn't actually check ANN, but I assumed it was going to be 26. Shame really, it's a nice series, easy to watch. There again... 12 good quality eps can be better than 26 sub-quality ones, so maybe it's best to end it at 12.

It has been a very long time since I've actually had any, but as I recall it has a sparkling lemon-lime flavor -- similar to Sprite or 7-Up.

Our local asian store (Uwajimaya) carries "ramune" sometimes... also my son's Japanese teacher engages in a thriving smuggling operation of yummies to fund her teaching needs and occasionally appears with it. It doesn't have the "coat your tongue" taste of Mountain Dew .... and not as metallic as, say, tonic water.
Sprite is a fair approximation, though you might wonder if something had gone wrong if you'd been told it was "Sprite".

Chinese grocery stores in the US sometimes have a small Japanese section. I've seen ramune in a Chinese store in a mid-size midwestern city. And Pocky (for Onegai series fans).

For those of you who are in the U.S., you can go here for pocky: http://www.asianfoodgrocer.com/. I go to the Military base for the pocky, and I like the way they treat the varieties same price

Oh hey, while we're advertising anime related merchandise, I saw an ad for the Lamune DVD's. It looks very much more nicer on DVD...hmm....as if the TV version wasn't good enough, the DVD really has my eye's....begging for more

Any chance of this getting licensed? I'd love to pick up the DVDs but only if they had english subtitles. This is definitely one anime I'd rewatch on DVDs. Heck I've watched through some of the currently subbed animes a few times. Quite a few of the episodes just have that feel good factor and are very relaxing to watch. Brilliant for relieving some stress after a hard day at work.

I can get Ramune at Central Market in Dallas, TX (which is, admittedly, a nice grocery store, but it's still just a grocery store). And Pocky like everywhere (they even sell it at the comic shop and every Suncoast I've ever been in).

Sadly there wouldn't seem to be much of a chance. Anime in this genre doesn't really seem to make it to the US very often.

This is a series that is short enough I might actually consider picking up the R2 DVDs.

And yes, Pocky is *almost* universal enough that many regular stores carry it (or at least the eclectic grocery stores like Haggens, Whole Foods, New Seasons, and such).

Its a real shame more series like this without explosions or small exotic creatures don't make it over here.... lost opportunities...

Perhaps a controversial post in this thread, but I was so opinionated that I actually made my way over to aniDB and wrote a review of Lamune...

http://anidb.info/perl-bin/animedb.p...meatt&aid=3414

Please, rate my review (The second one, by mik0) :P I am curious to see what people disagree with!

Not enough time for me to respond fully right now, but I'm sure somebody else will before I get back online. I will give you points for courage, assuming that you honestly want a critique and are not simply trolling. But one thing I think would help everyone out - how many episodes of Lamune have you actually watched? Not just skimmed, but watched and paid attention.

Two quick comments:

First of all, I suggest you review this thread and note the ages listed. I don't have mine turned on, but for the record I'm the same age as Vexx. Based on what I've seen, it seems that Lamune has a special appeal for some of the older anime viewers. Plus there are many people here who have specifically stated that they enjoy the more relaxed pace of this series.

Second, after reading the character portion of your review, I honestly have to wonder if you watched the same series that I did. The characters and their interactions are the strong point of this series. I simply cannot see how anyone could think that these characters are "shallow, awkward, and unbelievable." Especially after episodes 5 & 6.

I guess we may have a major disconnect when it comes to the definition of a lot of the terms you use. Opinions and tastes vary - that's why they make lots of different series. That is also why I do not trust ANY review unless it is from a person whose tastes I know through experience are either close to matching my own, or close to the opposite of my own.

Indeed the strong point of this anime is the characters' interactions (mainly between Kenji and Nanami). Lamune is all about Kenji and Nanami and though they do introduce a few other girls in the picture my focus has always been Kenji and Nanami. Honestly, I would much prefer watching just them spending their days together for all 12 episodes than having some side stories on other girls. That might bore the hell out of others but I'm ok with that.
