This might end up as a useless thread but I wanted to make it for talking about the new anime every season (I don't like making thread after thread for every new anime), as I -among others here- am a bigger fan/follower of anime than I am of manga.
So yeah, a general discussion thread for any new anime.
I'll kick it off and see if any of you guys/gals have anything to say about the less talked about stuff atm.
I watched the first episode of Natsu no Arashi the other day and thoroughly enjoyed it, seen allot of comments on MAL about people not liking the character design and tbh I can't understand why, it's certainly different but I think that's a good thing, I actually think Sayako is pretty hot (the fact that she's played by Shiraishi Ryoko might have something to do with this :x).
I also loved all the time skipping in it and how they all tied in to various strange parts from earlier in the episode. The abstract way that the sunlight and shadows were cast was a very nice touch as well.
Lastly, I found the short little flashes they put in of Sayako's belly button very amusing, like subliminal fan service followed by a quick flash of Hajime's outie belly button to ruin the moment.
Maybe some of the SHAFT staff have a belly button fetish
So anyone else actually enjoy the first ep?
Feel free to move the subject on to another new anime as well :3
