Hmm I guess I'll check it out sometime in the near future but I have the feeling the dyed hair girl is going to probably annoy me. Although maybe I'll find her funny.

@Konanda: I kinda worried about that too, but it hasn't happened yet. She's rounded out by a pretty cool cast, I think :)

i love hanamaru, like obviously the cuteness is its draw, but it really has a lot beyond it, i was really surprised.  its nothing ground breaking or anything, but i find myself really enjoying myself watching t, unlike just watching it to kill time like thought i would before it started.

@gia:
Ya when I get some free time (maybe next next week during reading week) I'll probably check it out.  
 
One thing about this video that perplexs me is why he's playing Dragon Quest VII since Dragon Quest IX (came out last July for DS) is huge in Japan right now. Particularly the multiplayer bit, which seems to work well in such a densely populated country.

@Agent_Lost: I didn't want to spoil it for people who hadnt seen it yet!
 
@Konanda: Well, DQVII was originally a PS1 title, so I think he's hoping for a port to the DS. (Dragon Quest V and VI have already been ported to DS.) ^^;

After watching the 1st episode, I will say, while I still don't care for Anzu, Hiiragi is pretty cool, Tsuchida's bumbling way is pretty funny and Yamamoto being completely oblivious of Tsuchida is pretty good to. Sakura's kind of interesting to with her headstrong seat of her pants personality. Her backstory is kind of neat to even if

it basically amounts to girl about to graduate got knocked up by her art teacher that she married and dropped out to go with him to follow him across the world.

 
Also when Tsuchida was introducing himself was hilarious especially the parents reaction from dude is weird to I kind of like the guy after he describes what he finds most attractive in a woman. 
 
Also is it just me or are those kids hella short for kindergarten, I mean they come up to the adult characters knees. That's less than 61cm (2 feet) tall and that's on a fairly tall adult. So it's more likely those kids are less than 50cm (1.65 feet) or so. That's pretty short for a kid that's around 5. So I'm guessing this is more like preschool and they are supposed to be 3 or so.

Also again, does nobody understand that the child of a blond and brown haired person is not going to be half and half. I mean they may have blonde hair for their first couple years of life that turns to a lightish brown colour but it doesn't come in half and half! Sure looking in the mirror you may notice the odd couple hairs that come in still being blonde but nothing like that.

I get that it's stylistic but it is just so jarring to see. Bah!

That said as I mentioned the first episode was enjoyable and when I get some time next week I'll probably try catching up on it.

Side note: Man imagine if there was a consumer electronics company called Pony. Oh and am I the only one who wants to vomit sugar and rainbows after watching that ending?

Each episode has had its own ending so far. The second was the best:

@gia:
:O (jaw drops) That ending is made of awesome. So much better than the first ending.

Looks like a fun show.  Maybe I will check it out in the near future.

@gia: He might have meant 8 (?) which was recently (6 months) released on the DS as its original platform, and was wildly popular.

Yeah, I'm with you. Both AHR and GIa check them out and seem to love it, so I guess its worth a shot.

Alright after watching up to episode 5, I'll agree that this show is pretty great. Also the best endings so far haven been the even numbered ones.
