 One kid, lots of girls.  Who would have thunk it?

Nagasarete Airantou (Cast Away... Airan Island when translated) is an anime adaption of the on-going manga, which was created by Takeshi Fujishiro.  The anime was produced by Feel and Starchild and directed by Hideki Okamoto.  There are 26 episodes.
 

Show Info

Genres: comedy, romance
Themes: harem
 
Plot Summary via Wikipedia:
 

Nagasarete Airantou revolves around Ikuto Tōhōin, the main protagonist, who ran away from home because of a fight with his father. Due to a life-long dream of wanting to board a ship, Ikuto decides to take a vacation on a cruise ship; the ship is suddenly hit by a huge storm, throwing Ikuto overboard. He wakes up the next day to discover he is on an uncharted island populated by girls. Ikuto finds himself to be extremely popular on the island, due to the fact that no other men currently live there. As a result, nearly the entire island starts pressuring Ikuto to become their husband — all except a young girl named Suzu and her extremely old grandmother. Suzu's grandmother decides that Ikuto will live with Suzu for the time being, but Ikuto initially finds it difficult to adjust, especially with the entire island population after him night and day. Meanwhile, Suzu does her best to protect Ikuto from the masses. However, Ikuto still does not want to stay on the island, and soon after arriving, he attempts to leave by boat, but discovers the island is completely surrounded by whirlpools and tornadoes, eliminating escape by sea or air, thus impossible to leave. With no other choice, Ikuto starts to settle into life on the island.


Pros and Cons

Pros:
  • A wacky cast of entertaining characters.
  • The goofy/wacky sense of humor was fun.
  • Enjoyed the not-so serious tone of the show.
 
Cons:
  • No real plot development.
 

Final Thoughts

It was a fun, lighthearted, goofy, and entertaining harem show.  It may not had any plot development, but that didn't ruin it for me.  I don't mind episodic shows.  All in all, it was a fun watch.
 

Who is this for?

If you are a fan of the harem genre, I say give it a shot and see what you think.  Just don't take it too seriously.

THE END

Don't forget to check out my ongoing blog for my Super Duper Mini Reviews and my written reviews.            :) 
 

Q: What's a Super Duper Mini Review?
A: Well, since I'm done with long, written reviews for now, I decided to put a short list of what I liked and didn't like about the shows I watch.  For some info about the show like genre, plot summary, etc., I borrow (mainly copy and paste  :P) some info from Anime News Network, Wikipedia or the Anime Vice wiki.  So people wont think I'm plagiarizing, I do post sources.
 
Q:  Why are these blogs so short and half assed?
A:  Well, I want to put in as little effort as possible.  Why?  Cause I'm lazy.
 
Q:  Do you care if people don't read these?
A:  Kinda.  One of the main things that keeps me making these things is so I can spread the word of shows/mangas that people aren't aware of.
 
Q: Sometimes there a few or no cons, does that mean the show is perfect?
A: No.  Usually when I make these, I like to highlight the things I liked more then the negatives.  I'm one of those people who enjoys just about anything as long as it's entertaining.  I can easily look past a show's faults if I find enjoyment from it.  Remember, nothing is perfect.

Plot Summary

Keiichi Morisato is looking forward to university life. But in reality, he has no luck in anything, and he has trouble with clubs, love, etc. The truth is that he has an unlucky star above his head. One day, Keiichi is stuck watching the dorm while his sempai are away, and has a mountain of chores to do to boot. But Keiichi is a good-natured person, and is set about doing his duties. As he is about to finish his final chore, he makes a phone call to his sempai. But the words that came through the receiver are, 'Goddess Help Line.' Shortly afterwards, a beautiful goddess named Belldandy appears in front of him from the mirror of his room.

Pros:
  • A great cast of characters.
  • Always put me in a good mood when I watched it.  A happy tone through out most the show.
  • Nice and pleasant soundtrack.
  • When there are some action scenes, they aren't to shabby.
 
 Cons:
  • One of those shows where relationship doesn't go that far.
 
 
 Notes and Fun Facts:
  • The creator of the manga, Kosuke Fujishima, also did character design for the Tales RPG series.
  • That manga started in 1988 and it's still going to this day.
  • Has some elements of Norse mythology.
 
 
If you are into romantic comedies, I will easily recommend this to you.  Despite some suggestive content, it's just one of the shows that's just plain fun to watch, regardless of age.  Easily one of my favorite romcoms I have seen so far.

Wow, I've been watching this show for almost 3 weeks now.  It seems like shows go one for a life time when you are busy and having fun as well.  Next up on my plate is Vandred.  Going to get my harem on again!

On the manga front I'm pretty much keeping up with the latest chapers of Naruto and Negima!  I was kinda thinking about checking out the Ah! My Goddess manga, but god, that thing wont be ending anytime soon and I will be stuck reading that for eternity.  Maybe I will check it out though.  If you currently reading the mange for Ah! My Goddess or have read some of it, how is it?  I would love to know.
 
For games I currently playing are Ridge Racer on my PSP and Super Street Fighter IV as always.
 
 
 
Until next time.  See ya!
