In The Spring

A young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of...

Railcars?

Iroha

I have no idea why, but the Spring season is definitely railcar season.  All the anime I've watched so far has included railcars.  In fact, when I saw the setting of the first episode of Ano Hana, I was just waiting for the railcar to show up, and was quite disappointed when it didn't.  But then in the second episode my patience was rewarded.

Also, hell's bells, the background artists in some of these shows have been putting in the overtime.  Even simply-animated productions like A Channel have some gorgeous background art.

Ano Hi Mita Hana No Namae O Bokutachi Wa Mada Shiranai

The name is a mouthful, but the anime is very, very good.

Score!  Four out of four railcars.

Anime

Hanasaku Iroha

Genki-girl fending for herself is hardly an untapped theme in anime, and the first episode of Hanasaku Iroha doesn't overwhelm.  It's by no means bad, and it picks up a little in the subsequent episodes and kept me watching, and there's some nice scenes of the countryside (and railcars are always welcome) but even when it engages it only does so on three cylinders.

Two and a half scary herons out of four.

Anime

A Channel

Yet another girls-being-cute 4-koma, but unlike, say, K-On!, this one has no story whatsoever and tries to skate by on charm alone.

And...  Pulls it off pretty well, actually.  It's not going to set the world on fire, but so far I like it a lot.

Three rainy days out of four.
