Yozakura Quartet: Hana no Uta Episode 1 Anime Review
You’re just jealous I have so much food.
No wonder the character designs all looked so familiar. This mangaka was an illustrator first and created the character designs for Durarara!! Specifically, the character design for the evil lightning dude and Izaya’s signature jacket – the way it’s drawn is just too similar. And we see a guy lifting a vending machine in the OP. The way the girls are drawn with simple lines and the colour palette as well.
To summarise in one sentence: Beasts with magic living alongside humans and having a festival.
I was really wowed by the creative magic in this show. From the inflating goldfish to how they followed the light. The twist of the blond girl was kind of expected since characters which talk that little usually have an agenda. I’m amazed she was able to block the beasts’ mind-reading though.
There are panty shots here unlike Durarara though. Oh well. But at least the guys here are somewhat cool. Ah, if I had a butler following me around. Of course, if he nags as much as that dude, it might be a bit of a downer. I don’t think I can make the lightning dude my minion, could I?
I really really like the ED song. It’s super catchy and upbeat. Overall, a fun anime and worth following.
