[New October 2010] Kuragehime

Japanese title: 海月姫

Genres: Comedy / Drama
I've watched: 1 episode

Tsukimi Kurashita loves jellyfish. She lives with a group of Fujoshi (female otaku). One day, because of a jellyfish, she brought home a very special "princess"...

First impression score: 84 ~ Noitamina!

Personal comments: Oops, apparently I jumped the gun on rating the best animes of this season. In case you aren't familiar with it, Noitamina is a Fuji television programming block devoted to anime that since its launch had brought us countless classics such as Honey and Clover, Nodame Cantabile, Mononoke, Eden of the East, The Tatami Galaxy, and more.
One thing you can count on the Noitamina is that it'll always be something unorthodox, in a good way. Kuragehime is no exception. There is no fancy art or special people involved in the story, but whatever they did with this anime, it managed to grab me less than 5 minutes into the opening episode. On top of that, this is quite an unusual topic as well--most story of this type focus on Otaku that are male; but this, focuses on female Otakus, which is quite a refreshing and unusual concept. In fact, I'm liking it so much that I'm willing to recall my statement for this season top 5 anime to have it replace Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai for the No. 5 slot.
