Kuragehime first impressions

This is the third of the anime I checked out. I decided I’ll blog Fortune Arterial, but please enjoy this anyway.

So I’ve thought about this for days, after I watched Kuragehime, and I can only come to one conclusion. I just don’t know. I don’t know if I like or I don’t. I’m not overly in love with it. I thought some parts were really amazing, but some parts grated on my nerves, and there still so much that the viewer doesn’t know, that I feel like I need more episodes before I can tell.

There’s bit and pieces I just really loved. The main characters comment about how what bonded them together was that even though they liked different things, they were deep down, nerds, and recognized that. The main characters knowledge about jellyfish, and the way she snuck in these scientific facts. The jellyfish we got to see was extremely cute. There’s of course the irony of thinking she’s come across the perfect women, only to discover he’s a man, which I found very funny.

I adore the detail put into the room, especially into her illustrations of different jellyfish.

By the way, anime viewing world, a cross-dresser is not the same thing as a transgendered. One enjoys dressing in the clothing of the opposite sex, the other believes they are not the sex of the body they were born in.

There was also things I didn’t like. What really got on my nerves was the main character constant panic attack. I don’t find these entertaining, just annoying.

In the end, for me I think what will make and break the series will be the relationship the cross-dresser has with the main character. There’s just not enough information to see what their relationship is going to be like. Until then, I just don’t know if I like the series or not.

  1. Yeah, I can’t say I was terribly thrilled by the first episode. It wasn’t bad, and maybe it’s not fair because I watched it while sick, but I didn’t quite understand the fanatical reactions for it.
