Summer Anime Impressions: Part Two

It’s the weekend and I got the opportunity to check out some more anime charted to start this summer. Actually the titles I checked out today are two I planned to avoid since the synopsis of both weren’t very interesting.

Servant x Service:

Servant x Service 2The overview of this anime made me think it would be boring but it’s actually funny. It’s about three college graduates who have become a part of society and enter the world of work at a ward office. It’s basically like a Public Relations company that has different branches – dealing with all sorts of queries from the customers. And they actually have something like counseling sessions with the elderly.

Isn't she just a precious little gram-gram

I like it because it reminds me of the first time I started working – during the summer of 2011, I think. It was rough the first few weeks because the customers were rude – especially because they could sniff the newness and intimidation. I worked at a pharmacy then and I remember one time I got into an argument with one of the customers. I ended up crying (not for the reasons you might think. I was in a rage, and you know how those tears work. I was mad because I couldn’t get my hands on her. I hate being embarrassed in public).

The character beside Lucy is really funny

The protagonist, Lucy Yamagami, is a bit of a conflicted character. She had evil parents who, unable to decide because of the list of names suggested when she was born, gave her all and shortened it to Lucy. Although I think she could just fix that part of her problem with a deed poll (does that system exist in Japan *Googles*) and she’s old enough to do it but I guess it’s a problem that remains for the funnies.

So basically it’s just about Lucy and her two coworkers getting the gist of working; dealing with customers and the elderly – oh, and about Lucy just accepting her litany of names. I’ll keep watching it. I guess I’ll do commentaries on this when things of note happen.

 Inu to Hasami Tsukaiyou:

Inu to Hasami wa tsukaiyou

I didn’t plan to even give this the time of day, but I actually like this. It’s about Harumi Kazuhito, a student and passionate reader (when I say passionate, I mean REALLY passionate. You should see this guy’s room. Books everywhere! How does he not feel suffocated in that room? If only I had remembered to take screenshots before switching over to this thing). His favorite author is one Akiyama Shinobu and he collects all books written by him.

One day he goes to some café, the café gets held up by some gunman, there’s this lady sitting behind him just writing, writing – oblivious to all this danger – and the gunman sees them and tries to rough them up. The woman is still off in her own world and Harumi jumps in to act as defender but ends up getting shot in the head. My heart went out to him. That’s a terrible way to die and he didn’t even get to read “Lust” (a book by Akiyama).

So what happened is that, as he’s on his way to the afterlife, he gains consciousness, sees the book and is determined not to die until he reads the book. He touches the cover, a dog appears and his soul goes into that dog and…he becomes a dog…

If ever I were to be reincarnated. I'd want to come back as a bird

What happens after is strange. Apparently the woman (Natsuno Kirihime in the background) can hear his dog thoughts and came to the pet shop; sliced up his cage and took him when the pet shop owner said he wasn’t for sale. It so happens that she’s Akiyama, Harumi’s favorite author so I guess the odds are in his favor. Even though he’s a dog, but that’s not too bad – he’s a cute dog. Plus he’ll get the chance to read that “Lust” book and he’s living with his favorite author.

It ended with them going to some place, I think she carried him to the gunman’s refuge. I actually like the concept of this so I’ll keep watching it – it’s not as awful or lame as some of the persons who commented on it made it to be (but then I’m a rookie, so what do I know).

There was no Shingeki no Kyojin today (is it time for its hiatus?). The other summer anime I’m looking forward to aren’t out yet: Makai Ouji and Blood Lad, so I’ll be waiting for those.

I was thinking that, since I was bored I’d try Ryo-Ku-Bu SS.

RoKyuBuBut who the hell am I kidding? There’s only one sports anime happening for me this season.

    Oh, I can’t even think of watching Inu to Hasami Tsukaiyou for some reason xD Probably because of the cover art and synopsis, they left a really bad impression on me. I’ll be able to read you reaction posts on it though, that will work =) Too bad if I am missing a good show..

      It did for me too, it’s actually because I was bored why I even decided to give it a chance xD but you should probably take a look at the first episode and decide from there because I doubt I’ll be posting on it much, but I’ll make the effort for your sake so you can decide 😛

        Oh thanks =) I can watch an episode, sure. By the way, were you serious about Ryo-Ku-Bu SS? I heard sort of a preview for it and it was kinda weird.
