Anime: Midori Days

Well, given the subject matter–guys wakes up one day, and his right hand now sports (instead of the expected five digits) a tiny girl who loves him–I thought that this was going to play to a number of Freudian themes. Hey, there’s a GIRL on your right hand–what are you going to DO on a Saturday night?!? Amirite? Guys?

Turns out I was wrong. The girl and the guy are, if you’ll pardon the phrase, bigger than that. Yeah, sure, there are some breasts here and there, but they’re not the focus of the story. This is a definite Top Ten in my anime realm. The characters are great, the situations move the story forward, and the ending is just what you (or at least I) hope it will be. Of course, I’m a sucker for the Big Romantic Ending, especially if the show’s been shooting in that direction, so that’s not a surprise. It’s just remarkable how they tied up all the loose ends so well. I was expecting to endure this series, given what I’d heard, but instead it was one of those shows that told me, “Keep going, there’s still some anime stuff out there that will surprise you, in a good way!”

Recommended, if you can find it.

  1. Sounds pretty good. I should be able to find it over here in Southeast Asia. Anime, of course, is huge in this part of the world (and amazingly inexpensive in the Philippines).
