Koko, a childhood friend of Yoshiyuki, tries to get the courage to confess to him at the school festival.
I loved this episode and it really seems like itâ€™s the start of a great series. As Iâ€™ve said before Iâ€™m a fan of school romance eroge adaptations, even though I know all arenâ€™t really good, still enjoy watching them. Anyways, thatâ€™s a rant for another time. I really enjoyed this episode and look forward to where it is heading. I am very curious and interested to find out who Yosh ends up with. Its not blatantly obvious right from the start so thatâ€™s always a good sign. People have pointed out already and I agree and know what they are talking about that generally if a girl confesses right at the beginning she doesnâ€™t end up with the guy. After all, a lot of the fun is the chase and if thatâ€™s over then thereâ€™s not much to focus on. In this kind of show that is, this isnâ€™t a strictly romance shoujo show so because of Kokoâ€™s confession thereâ€™s a good chance of him ending up with someone else. However, that almost makes me more interested. Not only do they have to show who he ends up with and why, but then why he breaks up with Koko. I just hope that Koko isnâ€™t left devastated. Iâ€™m sure sheâ€™ll probably be sad but I actually do hope they have a kind of return to friendship thing between them.
As for candidates to end up with other then Koko, thatâ€™s one of the thing that surprises me. There really seems to be Nanaka and the blue haired girl from the OP, plus his two â€œsistersâ€ The blue haired girl isnâ€™t an option because sheâ€™s too shy and lonely like to be the winner, but I’m sure sheâ€™ll get some focus. Nanaka almost seems like the main choice; however this is Da Capo, so his sisters probably arenâ€™t sisters. The thing that interests me though is they didnâ€™t say right from the start that they arenâ€™t blood related. I really donâ€™t think this show would actually make him end up with them if they were, so unless they state that rather soon they are almost not options. I think itâ€™s between Nanaka or the sister whoâ€™s first (family) name is Asakura. I mean, Asakura, come on; itâ€™s the same as Nemu.
I have to say that Iâ€™ very impressed with the animation. I usually donâ€™t really pay attention to the animation in a show and unless itâ€™s extremely horrible to the point of not being able to watch, I really donâ€™t care, so I donâ€™t pay attention to small stuff. But the quality of this episode did really catch my eye. I loved the effect that they kept using where they showed the sun outlining the characters, especially Koko in the last scene. I just thought that it was beautifully done and I hope that the quality wonâ€™t drop as the show goes on. Although Iâ€™m sure it will a little bit, like I said I donâ€™t really care, itâ€™d just be nice to see this kind of attention to the rest of the series.
