Last Seen: Episode 4
Summary: Succubi, dullahans, snow women and vampires... they're a little different from humans and called "demi-humans." Lately, they've been called "demis." This is a stimulating and heart'ful school comedy featuring those very unique "demis" and a high school teacher named Takahashi Tetsuo, who's highly interested in learning more about their daily lives and habits
First Impression: Null.
My Opinion: Since I literally picked up this shows Manga in December and burned through all of the translated chapters in a single sitting, I think it's safe to say I don't have a first impression of the anime that's worth mentioning. (Read as: That isn't Gibberish squealing in joy).
This show does not have action. There is basically no drama. There won't really be excessive comedy. It's...kind of slice of life.
Mostly, it's just charming, Thought-provoking, and heart-warming. This is a show you watch to chill and calm down after a bad day, or a long work shift. It will make you laugh a bit, maybe smile at some characters antics, think a bit about this, that, or the other thing.
Think of it this way:
Take the show "Everyday Life with Monster Girls", remove the erotica, the harem, and the main character being daft and dense, and you have this show. A pleasant fairly comedic slice of life, mostly focused on learning about the peculiarities of demi-humans living their everyday lives. As an added bonus, one of the main Demis isn't even a child, it's one of the teachers, and that makes me so happy. We are drowning in so much bloody high school in anime, and have been for a while. It's nice that some of the main characters aren't the students for once.
Personally, having actually read the manga for once, this is a lovely adaptation of a lovely story. There isn't really a plot to speak of, but the telling of the story is a joy unto itself.
Also, I was a little caught off guard by the math teacher being brought to life in the anime, I wasn't expecting them to be so...vibrant. I guess I pictured them as a little bit quieter of a person. Perhaps it was just a liberty they took to increase the shows run time, as there was an extra scene that the manga didn't have to reinforce this image, or I may just have formed a misconception of the character. Just thinking out loud really. If anyone else has read the manga as well, what are your thoughts on it? Was I the only one that thought she seemed a bit quieter, or maybe a bit more subtle, in the Manga?
