3. AI NO KUSABI
The story is set in the future on the planet named Amoi which is controlled by a supercomputer named Jupiter. Among the mostly male human population, the light-haired elite class is allowed to temporarily keep the dark-haired “mongrels” as pets. One elite member, Iason, encounters a mongrel named Riki in the slums and decides to take him in. However, Iason keeps Riki longer than it is socially approved, and rumors abound about their possible relationship.
2. Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi
The story is nothing out of the ordinary, yet it is also not entirely predictable. Even though the themes are simple, they are beautifully presented, and the timing is just right so that you can experience what the main character is feeling (at least, I felt it).
Ritsu Onodera, a literary editor, resigns from his father’s publishing company owing to jealously among his employees, stating that he is only riding his father’s coattails. He applies for a job at Marukawa Publishing to get out of his father’s shadow, but instead of being sent to the literature department, he is assigned to the famous shjo manga section, Emerald.
He considers leaving at first, particularly because he finds his new boss, Masamune Takano, intolerable and uncomfortable from the start; however, Takano unintentionally inspires Onodera to stay by calling him “useless,” his pride compelling him to stay in order to prove his value.
Takato Saij, who has been an actor from childhood, has been named the “sexiest man of the year” in the entertainment business for five years in a row. His first-place status, however, has been replaced by Junta Azumaya, a young newbie actor. While Takato regards Junta as a rival, Junta greatly admires Takato and is in love with him.
Actually, the art and music aren’t all that bad. It had some poor parts, but it was largely great. Because Cloverworks also made Bunny Girl Senpai and Fairy Tail this season, I believe this had the best art and animation of the three. The OP and ED are both quite catchy and enjoyable to listen to. The OST isn’t particularly memorable, but I adore the OP and ED.
