First Impressions “A Centaurs Worries”

Also known as “A Centaur’s Life”, is an anime that follows a group of friends in a world much like our own except for the fact that there are several different races in a broader sense. The races include: Angel folk, Demon Folk, Cat People, Centaurs, Mermaids and a few others. Each race has unique physical attributes but are all equal in the eyes of the government. The history of the world within the anime and manga is nearly identical to our own except that evolution changed and went a different route than in our world.

It is a “slice of life” anime that follows high school students in their everyday life and sometimes shows the world around them and political struggles. The center character as you might have guessed is a Centaur named Hime, along with her best friends a demon girl, a goat girl and a snake girl. They live fairly normal high school lives with friends, events, confessions and other things typical of teen girls.

I really enjoyed the manga as I have a interest in the “Monster Girl” genre to begin with but this series is makes it seem so normal while bringing up a lot of real world social issues that make it a gem among newer series for sure.

First Impressions: Haven’t you heard? Im Sakamoto

A quirky anime about a cool and stylish student named Sakamoto who is the subject of resentment from his fellow male students and the crushes from his female peers (and some of his male ones). He handles every situation with grace and style, though many of the situations are a little silly from sword fighting with a Bee to battleing forces of nature.

The series consists of 13 episodes and is packed with zany fun in each one. Since being simulcasted starting in April I have come across many a posting across internet sites of funny moments. A little late to the game but I finally found this series and think it is def one to sit back and watch.

Kamigami no Asobi

This otome game turned anime aired in 2014 and consists of 12 episodes (wish there were more >_<).

Yui Kusanagi is a normal highschool aged girl living in her family’s Shinto shrine. One day she comes across a sword that takes her to another realm where she meets a host of bishi Gods. She learns from Zeus that┬áhe has set up this school and put some of the problem Gods in it along with Yui to help the Gods understand more about humans. If they are not able to accomplish this feat then they will all forever be trapped in this realm.

There are several Gods from: Greek, Japanese and Norse mythology. Each one has personality characteristics having to do with what they are gods over. Yui slowly gets to know each one and they all open up to her eventually. This series was a good one, sometimes with Otome games turned animes I’m not always a fan. This one had lots of funny moments and also serious tones as well. I liked Hades and Takeru the best.

Check this series out and tell me what you think of it! Who is your favorite God?
