Welcome to the Let's Talk edition where my teammates and I introduce a spring 2013 anime series to promote the discussion. Today's topic is Henneko, and the full title of Henneko is Hentai Prince and the Stony Cat.

(Since I don't have much time, I'm going to rush this blog. Sorry for the inconvenience)

Plot

Genres: Romance, Comedy

Yoto Yokodera's mind is always in the gutter, but no one seems to acknowledge that he's totally a pervert. One fine day, he visits a cat statue that he heard can grant wishes. He prays that he can express dirty things at any time. Then, he meets a girl named Tsukiko Tsutsukakushi who also made her wish to the statue.

— Anime News Network

Note: it's not a harem more like a love triangle. I got mixed up on this series when I made my impressions from the opening song.

You can watch Henneko legally on Crunchyroll.

Trailer

Characters

Here is our beautiful cast.

Yoto Yokodera
Voiced by Yuki Kaji, he is our perverted protagonist. He is a chatterbox - who only joins the track team, so he can peek at the all girls swim team through a crack in the wall.
Tsukiko Tsutsukakushi
Voiced by Yui Ogura, she is one of three heroines. At first, she is shy girl. Once she makes that wish, she is emotionless. Though, it's a drawback because the children are afraid of her. Tsukiko has a dream to become a kindergarten teacher, but she cannot express any emotions.
Tsukushi Tsutsukakushi
Voiced by Yukari Tamura, she is the "King of Steel." Tsukushi is a strict gal and has no tolerance for Yoto's pervertedness.
Azusa Azuki
Voiced by Kaori Ishihara, she is a pompous girl with a tsundere personality. Yoto believes Azusa has his facade and goes to great lengths to get it back from Azusa.

First Impressions

To be honest, I only watch the first episode when I heard there were Eyecatch. It's my wiki hobby to collect eyecatches for the Wiki Task: The Eyecatch Collection. As I watch it, it pulled me in a bit. Even though I didn't like Yoto who is so perverted and can't shut his damn mouth, I like Tsukiko. Her voice and mannerisms (after the wish) remind me of Mashiro Shiina from Pet Girl of Sakurasou. The characters' chemistry blend well, and it produces some good entertainment. Though, the comedy element doesn't feel natural or realistic like Oreimo. Most of comedy comes from Yoto being perverted or reprimanded.

For the animation and art style, I thought the characters are in middle school. However, they are high schoolers since Azusa has a part time job. In Japan's culture, high school students are the only ones below 18 to get a part time job. The art style makes the characters look so young.

Audience: I say fans who love slice of life, romantic, or comedy themed shows should give Henneko a try. Henneko is a cutesy, comedic series with a love triangle that is pretty common.

Hello everyone! Today, I'm promoting Karneval, one of the spring 2013 anime series, by sharing my first impressions.

I tried the show because of its trailer (Spring 2013 Trailer: Karneval) and its colorful poster art. I'm still looking for anime series outside of my preference zone: comedy and shonen. I figured another Josei theme show after trying Natsuyuki Rendezvous series wouldn't hurt me.

Genre: Supernatural, Action, Sci-Fi,

Plot: Armed with only an abandoned bracelet as a clue, Nai searches for someone dear to him. After a run in with a pick-pocket named Gareki, the two find themselves involved in a government set-up that leaves them wanted criminals. Desperate and on-the-run, Nai and Gareki turn to the country’s most powerful defense organization--“Circus”--for help.

You can watch Karneval legally at FUNimation or HULU.

Characters

Here is a brief overview of the characters along with my first impressions of them.

Nai
Nai is a mysterious boy whose age is unknown.

I say Nai is about 14 years old. When I see Nai, he reminds me of Yashiro Isana from K. Though, I was surprised that he is voiced by Hiro Shimono, the man who voices Sasuke Tsubaki.
Gareki
Gareki is a 15 years old thief.

Even though he does things for his own benefit, he is a nice guy deep inside.
Hirato
Hirato is 27 years old and the Second Ship's Captain.

He takes the strict captain role.
Tsukumo
Tsukumo is 16 years old one of Circus Second Ship's fighters.

She is quiet but tough as nails. I like her.
Yogi
Yogi is 21 years old and is one of the Circus Second Ship's fighters.

When I first saw the guy, he was wearing a cat suit, Nyanperowna. I enjoyed Yogi in how he interacts with everyone. He eases the tense in the show.

First Impressions

The first episode showcased something unexpected. I was expecting the colorful things, but I watch a grisly scene of a monster chowing down a guy in the beginning. Then, it shifts to a train scene where Nai uses his special ability to find the bombs. The first episode hook me in because I wanted to find out more about Nai and this person, Karoku, whom Nai searches for. The cute, colorful, and comedic scenes shines in episode 2 and 3 with Yogi. This is when I started to enjoy Karneval and continue to watch the series.

Audience

It's for everyone who enjoys a bit of supernaturaI and mystery show along with some exciting action pieces. It looks like an innocent Josei show, but it could get dark a bit. I recommended the anime series to UsaChanMan - who loved it.

Please check out the Karneval Discussion that is located in the Community Directory: Discussion Threads, Lists, Projects & More! on the forum page. I hope to see you guys and gals over there.
