October 2008 New Anime: Akane-iro ni Somaru Saka (あかね色に染まる坂)

Genres: School Drama / School Comedy / School Romance
I've watched: 1 episode
Art style: Video Game Style

Summary: Some dude ran into a girl who was in trouble and helped her out. She turned out to be a new student in the same class with him. With a series of misunderstanding, he ends up kiss her in front of the whole class, while neither of them knew that their parents already arranged their marriage.

Rating (of 5) - first impression: 4 ~ Many WTF moments

Recognized Voice Talents: Two of my favorite voice actresses, Aya Hirano (平野) (Haruhi Suzumiya from Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Konata Izumi from Lucky Star) , and Rei Kugimiya (釘宮理恵) (Shana, Louise from Zero no Tsukaima series) are in this anime together. This is a good sign that this will be at least a semi-decent series.

Personal comments: The pre-opening and opening kind of confused me a little bit. Also, there are many moments made me jump up and down shouting "WTF!" Nevertheless, it got me curious what's going to happen next. The art, setting, and characters are very typical of a dating-sim game converted anime like Da Capo or Shuffle!.

About the screen cap: People say a picture worth a thousand words, but you rarely find one that actually does. Well, in this case, I think this picture does worth a thousand words.
