This has given me another reason to look forward to Fridays:
I’ll explain why, just very quickly..
First of all:
Two years ago, Tachibana Junichi got his heart broken by a girl who didn’t show up for a date on Christmas Eve. Now a second year student in high school, Junichi spends his days inside his closet planetarium, going to school and hanging out with his friends Tanamachi Kaoru and Umehara Masayoshi.
Now, that’s the main synopsis of the anime, we get introduced to the main character, Tachibana (oh I like that name now, thanks to Angel Beats!).
Here’s a bit of background of the anime’s structure:
Amagami SS is based on a PS2 dating game featuring six different girls. The story of the anime will be arranged in an omnibus format, with each heroine getting her own version of the story animated. Each heroine will sing her own version of the ending theme song.
I’ve always wanted to see an anime do this; I’ve watched a lot of anime adaptations from visual novels/dating games, but not one of them have explored all endings! (Clannad KIND of did, lol School Days). So here is what makes Amagami SS unique, it actually seems to be following this structure!
A total of 24 episodes, 6 girls, 4 episodes each (the first arc just ended, and I can’t wait to get home to see it).
First arc synopsis:
After a chance encounter with one of the most beautiful girls in school, the third year student Morishima Haruka, Junichi finds himself spending time with her, carrying books for her or having her unexpectedly jump on his back and act as she’s a jockey and he’s her horse. Soon enough, Junichi becomes romantically interested in Haruka which leads to…
Ahh.. it’s also a breath of fresh air from all the supernatural, fantasy and ecchi genres going on this season.
