[New April 2011] Dog Days

Japanese title: DOG DAYS
Genres: Comedy / Action / Children's?
I've watched: 1 episode

Summary: A boy is summoned to a fantasy land as a warrior to help the kingdom of "dogs" (appears to be) to fight the kingdom of "cats". The battle is fought though...series of acrobatics competitions?!!

First impression score: 79 ~

Familiar voices: In first 5 seconds of the episode, I manages to recognize two voices right off the back: Ami Koshimizu (小清水亜美) as Leonmitchelli, who's most famous for her voice as the wise wolf Horo from Spice and Wolf; Norio Wakamoto (若本規夫) as Godwin, who is probably best known as the "Devil King" Oda from Sengoku Basara. But that's only the "cat" side of the war. The "dog" side, is covered by no other than Mamoru Miyano (宮野真守), famous for the voice of Zero Kiryuu from Vampire Knight, along with Yui Horie (堀江由衣), famous for the voice of Yuki Cross, also from Vampire Knight.

Personal comments: I don't know if I want to laugh or cry, at one point in the middle of the episode, I literally could not believe what is happening on the screen. It's just so...cheesy. I'm not sure how the story would come out. In my opinion is most likely to be a bust. But, having the voice "Wise Wolf" Horo team up with the "Devil King" Oda, go head to head against the voice of the pure blood vampire pair Zero Kiryuu and Yuki Cross, is nevertheless intriguing.
