The animation sometimes gave me a feeling of Noein: detail sacrificed to motion. Some of the motions are extremely smooth and detailed, like when she walked across in front of the wall on the roof of the school. As a complete amateur, I hesitate to make any statement about animation in front of DaFool, but that's what I see, anyway. Low budget, perhaps, but for me it works aesthetically. Bright colors are not a requirement of good art. And the character design is a perfect adapatation of the strange but interesting look of the manga.

After reading negative reviews here and elsewhere, I went back and watched ep1 again -- and liked it even more. What's important is the human relationships and feelings. Anyone who's bored by her interesting relations with her classmates will certainly not enjoy the show. There will definitely be no goth-lolis with machine guns in this one (I don't think). Her feelings, as I experienced them, when she was sitting there about to be served at the restaurant, were wonderful.

wow, i feel the exact same way. i think people have their expectations up from haruhi and similar shows, but this show isn't about the asthethics. anyone who's been in love or in a similar situation to nana knows how she's feelings. it gets the point across well. you feel for her.

I've blogged the first episode. For a contrary point of view, see Random Curiosity.

On 2channel, Japanese fans are very split. Some people just hate everything about this show. Some love it and like the first-time seiyuu. I've included details about the seiyuus and the staff in the blog entry. Or you can find them earlier in this thread.

People on 2channel have taken to calling Yamamoto Yuri, the girl who felt ill on the hike, by the name "Nagato," after the similarly silent Nagato Yuki, the humanoid data interface in Suzumiya Haruhi.

Indeed, this show seems very polarized, and I haven't even seen it yet. Seems however, from what I've read so far, that I'll be leaning towards the negative side.

It's similar to Simoun. It's either you hate it or you love it. I have to wait for the sub to understand the story, or it hasn't struck me as really good yet that I have to watch the raw before I watch the sub.

(Although OT, since many of you know more than me in anime, H&C II seems to get rave reviews from both Japanese and English-subbed viewers, right? It sure seemed that way for me.)

I didn't even watch the first H&C yet.

Any groups showing interest in subbing this yet?

Solar-Fansubs and C1 have already subbed the first episode of the second season and have also subbed the first season in its entirety.

Going back, I haven't seen any Bokura ga Ita subs yet; hopefully, it will be good because of Akitaroh Daichi. Otherwise ... I don't really expect much.

According to AndrewLB's wiki, ureshii plans to sub Bokura ga Ita. There are already four different Chinese subs of ep1.

episode two was just as marvelous for me, many great moments with perfect timing to both amuse and move... I love the simple feel of the show...

I've blogged episode 2, which I liked at least as much as episode 1. I think Sasaki Nozomi, the new young seiyuu, really has something. It's only two episodes, so things could still fall apart, but the story is shaping up nicely, and I find the characters sympathetic and interesting. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who doesn't like shoujo romance, but I would recommend it to everyone who does.

That is good news! They are a good fan subbing group. Thanks Kaoru! I just hope Ureshi would be able to finish with Nishi no Yoki Majo, a wonderful 13 episodes series, before they dive into FOUR new projects.

The same person (JRY_RY) is listed as translator for Westwitch, Nana, and Bokura, among other projects. S/he has good taste. When you want a job done right, give it to someone who's already doing too much. Sad but true.

In the meantime, I have blogged episode three. I'm doing them in some detail, at least until the fansubs start to come out.

I notice that there are already four different Chinese subs of episode 3 available. And one more for ep1, making a total of six for ep1 and five for ep2. The show does seem to have Chinese fans, at any rate. I hasten to add that I'm not criticizing the lack of English subs at all, just amazed at the speed and productivity of Chinese fansubbers.

Well I watched the first episode by Triad this morning and I have to say I love it! It reminds me alot of Aishiteruze Baby in art style, and it's slow pace, but emphasize on character development and interaction. I'm definetly going to look forward to watching this weekly.

So, I guess it's time to move this thread to the fansubs forum, ne?

Mmm, for the art style, Kare Kano came to mind ^^
