[Final Impression] Moshidora

(This article is personally written by me as the guess writer here without prejudice and does not represent the view of this blog as a whole. Viewer discretion is advised)

Finally after about 2 weeks airing this anime finally came to an end. It was quite fast, if I’m not mistaken, 4 episodes per week (well there’s a reason for that but I forgot what it is). The ending is kinda bittersweet, making it the 3rd anime this year with that kind of ending.

I’d like to reminisce the whole story again. Minami Kawashima, being the current manager for Hodokubo High baseball team, was actually a stand-in for the bedridden Yuki Miyata who was the actual manager for the team. Those two were good friends and has been together ever since they were babies (I wonder how is that possible?). Too bad in the end Yuki didn’t managed to see the team won the final and go to the nationals, despite it was her dream to bring the team to achieve that. Honestly for me that was an unexpected development that I wasn’t ready to face. It’s because halfway through the series it appeared to be a heartwarming one. Things however started to show the sign of upcoming tragedy since episode 6, where there was still no indication that Yuki’s health is improving. The demise of Yuki was a big shock to Minami at first and she gave up her management job, until she realized that she should not stop halfway of what is actually started by Yuki. But that is not after she was slapped by Jiro though >_<

There’s a little presence of Yuri in this show though and luckily it wasn’t given too much attention or else it would have been too distracting and this anime might lost its educational value then. Somehow I think this anime needs some real romance instead of that yuri, and I think Minami should have been paired with Jiro considering that how close the two are as childhood friends 🙂

The OP & ED of this anime  also sounded “happy” and does not help in giving initial impression that it will have a tragic moment. If we were to rely on the OP& ED alone I bet nobody would have thought that this anime has quite a tragic plot. Speaking of OP & ED, I like both of them, and they’re listed in my favorites already.

I have neither grudge nor hatred against sports anime. With the right settings, as long as there are good character design and good story then I’m all set. The last time I liked baseball in anime was the baseball episode in Ika Musume though (refer to the 10th episode of that anime). Earlier than that would be another baseball anime, Ookiku Furikabute though I don’t like the little presence of yaoi there (lucky their coach is “well-endowed” *cough*). Anyways it’s because of this anime that I learned more about Peter Drucker‘s “Management”. I think aspiring businessmen should watch this anime too. I’d recommend this to businessmen as it could be a good reference for them, and I know why this anime is good for that because I’m also a businessman.


Moshidora anime info

For those of you who didn’t notice, the anime Moshidora will air a new episode every day of the week except week-ends. The show is set to air for 10 episodes during this week and nex week. Moshidora might as well be a “fast-food” of anime (lol). I guess they’re just running the series this fast to serve as a promotional strategy (don’t ask me if it’s a good method) for the Moshidora live-action movie set to release in the summer. (anime schedule)

The movie will be starred Atsuko Madea (part of Team A of AKB48), who is playing as the main character Minami Kawashima, and her fellow AKB48 teammate Minami Minegishi (also Team A), who is playing in the role of Ayano Hojo.


Moshidora (Live-Action Trailer): starred by Atsuko Maeda

I didn’t notice it first, but Atsuko Maeda plays the main character of Moshidora’s live-action movie, Moshi kōkō yakyū no manējā ga Dorakkā no “Management” wo yondara. Some other AKB48 members also appear in the movie. That’s good reason to look forward to the movie (lol). Long Live AKB48!


Anime Spring 2011 Season Preview

I’m right in time! This season is full of shounen, lolicon, random comedy and slice of life anime. Not all anime (Sekai Ichi no Hatsukoi, Dog Days, Dororon Enma-Kun Meeramera, Hamtaro, Hidan no Aria, etc…) has been put in the preview.

Anime TV Series

Gintama The Sequel

Synopsis: Continuation of the first series. The samurai didn’t stand a chance. First, the aliens invaded Japan. Next, they took all the jobs. And then they confiscated everyone’s swords. So what does a hotheaded former samurai like Sakata “Gin” Gintoki do to make ends meet? Take any odd job that comes his way, even if it means losing his dignity.

Rejoice!!! There is a good reason to go back to crunchyroll (lol). The super randomness is finally back in anime to blow minds up. I really can’t wait for Gintama to come back this april. I miss Tsukuyu <(** < ) . Watch out Gintoki, because Zura is trying to learn the ultimate technique from Lake Toya’s mom (no pun intended? dun dun dun).

30-Sai no Hoken Taiiku

Synopsis: Based on a guide-book teaching shy men around 30 how to date and have sex with women.

It is the most original concept of this century so far. Even though I’m not 30, this anime seems interesting enough to put a smile on my face. Oppai is Justice!!!!!!
