Hm, I just got through the first volume of the manga.

I have peeked at the spoilers in this thread, and it seems that there is more to the island than it seems. Is this like Lost if it were a Japanese manga/anime comedy...

In the manga:

Personally i think mentioning Misaki was just a one off thing to kick start Suzu's "realisation of love" for Ikuto and for that she served her purpose and i doubt will be making anymore appearances...

Unlike Shinova I don't see any significance of Misaki other than that..

I had a MUCH harder time distinguishing the girls apart in Negima than in Airantou. It didn't help that all of Negima's girls usually wore the same school uniform, and that there were so many of them that even different hairstyles didn't help sometimes---not to mention their physiques are in general very alike. The majority of Negima girls basically embody one character trait, like computer nerd and cosplay queen for Chisame, or reporter girl for Kazumi, and so on. It's hard to remember a character when you're only given one character trait to remember by, and hence only the plot-important girls like Asuna, Konoka, Setsuna, Evangeline, and so on get remembered, and the rest of the cast become either comic relief or one-shot moe props. Of course, moe is one of the biggest things about Negima, granted.

Airantou has a much smaller cast, and no one becomes merely an extra or moe prop. They all look very different too, from clothing, hairstyles, physiques, even facial expressions. It also helps that they don't use a single moe characteristic as the entire foundation of their character. For examples, (major character spoilers, but no real plot spoilers)

Spoiler for Ayane:


Spoiler for Machi:

Im usually not into harem unless i like the male lead, but 100% of the animes have stupid male lead. As this anime is an harem genre, i give compliments to how harem it is.
If it helps,

Spoiler for volume 8:



This was probably overboard, but yeah, that's what I have to say about that.

Anyone know why I can see the karaoke subs but not the dialogue subs ?

Edit: This is for the Ayako sub.

Edit 2: Nevermind, I just had to play around with my vobsub.

I knew I heard Machi's voice before. It's the same as Ren from Erementar Gerad.

Yeah, I agree that there are so many subbing groups for this.

For 1st episode impression, this has got to be the first harem series that got me laughing hard from beginning to end. LOL at poor Ikuto suffering blood loss all the time.

Once again Hocchan rules, I never get tired with her sweet voice. She's like the only girl that isn't "evil". At least not yet.

And it's fun to hear Kujira play Obaba, haven't heard her trademark "Orochimaru evil laugh" for ages now.

I agree.

I usually detest harem anime as well as fan-service anime. However, NA did everything right. It was hysterically funny from beginning to end and all of the fan service was implied, that is, hinting at it but not showing it. I dont watch cartoons to see the panties on 14 year old girls.

Will NA be able to keep up the laughs and perhaps grow into a real story?

I, for one, hope so.

PS: Love the names: Tonkatsu, Sashimi, and Kuma-Kuma *bonk*.

Well, if the manga is any indication, the fan service is going to be somewhat more than implied as we go forward...

Takahashi Mikako, the same who also voiced Ayumi Yamada in Honey & Clover and the much loved Tomoko in Canvas 2.

Speaking of seiyuus, if you're watching "Hayate no Gotoku!" right now, try pay attention to Rin's voice (the red-haired girl) and notice how it sounds familiar... actually it's Shiraishi Ryoko, the same who's dubbing Hayate (a male). And there's no great difference in the two interepretations as well ^^

Oh, I also wanted to add an avatar from a scene in episode 1 that was just screaming to be made as a gif!

Don't forget that Shiraishi Ryoko is also Kaede from Negima. I think she also plays Sorath from SnS. She does such a good job for boyish characters.

Anyways, luv the slaps! ^^

I thought she sounded familiar. The only thing missing was the "nin-nin" catchphrase, plus Rin is much more dere-dere than Kaede.

I knew the first episode was missing some (minor) stuff, so I re-read the first volume:
  • After Ayane accuses Suzu of wetting the bed (and Ayane falls to the ground), Suzu tells Ikuto that's not true... she stopped wetting the bed last year . (She's 13)

  • Rin's coat/cape/whatever. She looks nice with it, and sometimes wears it around her waist. I hope they add it later.

Really, I hope people give this show a chance, since it's a comedy rather than a harem show.

Going to be pretty interesting to see how far they can get with 26 episodes. From what I can remember, pretty much all the arcs in the scanlated volumes of the manga were funny, hope they don't cut any.

Wait... what? Suzu is 13?

How old are the other girls? I don't remember hearing their age, or I have missed that.

You find out their ages later on as the series goes.

BEWARE OF THE POST ABOVE !

Some of the gags (and even a full chapter of the manga) depend on your ignorance of their ages!
