Final Review: Tari Tari

DISCLAIMER: Anime reviews on this blog will attempt minimal to no spoilers unless otherwise noted. If a review seems dull or shallow, it’s because I’m trying to make sure not to go into too detail for those who are actually interested in the show before or after reading the review or those who have yet to finish the title. If you want further details, there are usually tons of reviews that can be found elsewhere on the internet. Furthermore, anime reviews in general are the sole opinion of the author writing it and thus differ across the users. There is no such thing as a “right answer” only a majority agreement. You are free to have your own opinions and thereby free to state and/or argue/debate in the comments section below or on the Fansub TV Forums. The review is not necessarily meant to serve as a recommendation but rather a personal opinion of having completed the series.

As summer reviews wrap up, I finally got around to finishing the final episode of Tari Tari. Tari Tari is based on an ongoing manga that started in May 2012. So effectively, you could call this an original work given how little source material there is. It follows Konatsu Miyamoto who is an optimistic girl and loves to sing. Unfortunately, the vice principal, who is also the advisor of the choir club, thinks otherwise, forcing Konatsu to quit the club and start her own vocal music club, a group that effectively became the vocal music with badminton on the side club. Together with Sawa Okita, Wakana Sakai, Taichi Tanaka, and Atsuhiro (Wien) Maeda, the five attempt to prove to the vice principal that they’re serious about singing. Tari Tari aired during the Summer 2012 anime season, was simulcasted on CrunchyRoll, and licensed by Sentai Filmworks.

Final Review: Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai

Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai (hereafter known as Boku-H) is based on an ongoing light novel that began publishing in 2010. Contrary to what the title implies, the show in short involves Lisara Restall, a grim reaper, and her “temporary” contract with Ryousuke Kaga, a normal perverted high school student. The catch is, Ryousuke loses his perverted spirit every time he comes into “sexual”-like contact with Lisara. Furthermore, Ryousuke is expected to die in 3 months time and therefore is left with no choice except to help Lisara search for the human with a powerful spirit to fuel her grim reaper powers. Boku-H premiered during the Summer 2012 anime season, was simulcasted by CrunchyRoll and licensed by Sentai Filmworks.

Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon II (hereafter known as Horizon II) is the direct continuation to Fall 2011’s Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon. The series is based off the ongoing light novel that began in 2008. Horizon II continues immediately from where its prequel cliffhanged as Tres Espana clashes with Musashi. Horizon II also covers the arc when Musashi heads to England, which includes the re-enactments of Bloody Mary and the Spanish Armada. Horizon II aired during the Summer 2012 anime season and like its prequel it was simulcasted by CrunchyRoll and licensed by Sentai Filmworks.
