Tsuki No Koibito

As in my last seen J-dorama.

The story goes around Hazuki Rensuke – the president of the Regolith – a furniture manufacturing company – who is very devoted to his work and his passion – the true essence of furniture stands in his love for the natural element: wood.

Because of that – he leads his life worrying only to deliver good furniture to the public. As a human he can be cataloged as a cold person. He doesn’t let people see if he is sentimentally involved in something.

Things go complicated when he realizes he likes Xiu Mei – a worker at one of his factories. Xiu Mei becomes the model of the company – and Rensuke starts falling deeply for her.

Being a romantic production, of course that we have the cliche of breaking-up and feeling deeply sad about this. But in the end everything works out.

From the three persons who are attached to Rensuke, the most I liked Onuki Yuzuki character interpreted by Kitagawa Keiko.

If you’re looking for stylish characters and a certain degree of life lived right, you got yourself a deal by watching this production.

If you’re like me, you’ll observe the true meaning of every detail of the show. I always watch something that can be learning material and not just to waste time.

I really enjoyed the show – part because of the story, part cuz of the characters. You should enjoy it too.

Anime Summer 2010

Get ready for the most impressive anime summer 2010 list. You gotta watch the video. It has details on new anime series, movies and also OVAs.

Strike Witches season 2, Sekirei season 2,  new Pokemon and Naruto movies. A new series of Queen’s Blade OVAs and of course some new and interesting shows.

At last, I’ll be able to watch Highschool of the Dead – which I really expected these last months.

Ikkitousen Xtreme Xecutor 01

The spring anime season brought back some fighting action teamed up with ecchi elements and anime girls. Ikkitousen Xtreme Xecutor – the battle for being number one it’s still going on.

Meet Bachou Mouki, a first year student at the Ryoushu Highschool. Being the aggressive type but also still a girl, she is seeking revenge. Her purpose is to avenge her brother Kansui Bunyaku who was killed by Sousou Moutoku.

She [just by herself] attacks the students where Sousou is the leader. Even in his absence, she doesn’t stop kicking everyone’s butt.

It seems that Mouki will not stop until she will accomplish her goal – to see Moutoku dead –  “I cannot get back empty handed…until I avenge my bro…I’m not going anywhere” – she said.

She uses her temperament to talk ill about Sousou, fact that will cost her.

Ikkitousen was far from my favourite series and I don’t like very much this show either but, because I was curious to see if that Ikkitousen spirit it’s still in the show, I tried it.

Kaichou wa Maid-sama 01

Anime Spring season is here…with more cute girls dressed-up as maids.

Kaichou wa Maid-sama is an anime adaptation of the manga with the same name.

Success or not? Some folks would say that they had enough maids with Lady vs Butlers, some will enjoy this show too.

It’s not an ecchi centered anime and it’s not about embarrassing situations, but a kind of love story between two people. Or at least that’s what the first episode taught me [I never read the manga to know more about it].

Misaki Ayuzawa is the Student council president, she comes from a poor family, so she has to maintain a job. She works as a maid and she does her best trying to hide this from her classmates and other people from the school.

She is strong headed but also intelligent, ambitious and she never fears of taking responsibility. She always tries to do the right things and to help obtaining an organized and disciplined highschool atmosphere.

But even with this, she has a girly side and things that she never liked. When one person from her school finds out about the maid business, her world cracks [a bit and only in her mind]. She thought that everything she created will be now ruined, but that’s not the case.

Takumi Usui [the responsible for ruining her secret] is the popular guy that always rejects proposals and makes girls cry. But when dealing with Misaki, he tends to be protective and charming. At this point a relationship between the two of them it’s quite inevitable.

I guess I’ll start reading the manga, since I really enjoyed this first episode.
