April 2007 New Anime Report Part 4

Touka Gettan
Three letter description: WTF!
Genres: Traditional Japanese fantasy
I've watched: 2 episodes
Art style: Artistic Drama/Traditional Japanese
Recommended to: um....I don't know, this one is too weird to say
Summary: Good question. I am yet to figure out what's going on. So far all I've seen is whole bunch of things made me say "WTF?". It seems to be focusing on being artistic. Both the art work and the weirdness reminded me "Yami to Boushi to Hon no Tabibito" ( believe or not, animesuki claim there's still seeds despite it's 4 years old), which is also produced by Avex Mode. It turned out to be not so bad. You just have to get used to the weirdness. So I think I'll give this one a chance as well.
Rating - first impression: "too weird" out of 5
Additional comment: WTF

Recommended to: People like supernatural stories (vampires, etc.)
Summary: A guy obsessed with taking pictures of sky run into a girl while trying to capture the sky of the sunrise. The next day, he run into her again and she's being hunted by a man. So he saves her and found out she is not human. She claim to be a creature can only exist under dark (but she's not a vampire, so far I can tell from their conversation).
Rating - first impression: 4.8 out of 5
Personal comment: For some reason, I found the main female character very appealing. I like the character design (including the voice and personality) and the art work very much. That's part of the reason I've given it such high score. Having said that, the plot build up is quite good too, in my opinion. Although you may have completely different opinion on the rating without this influence.
