Hatsukoi Limited : many many thoughts and more. The proper ecchi dose of the spring? More J.C. Staff goodness

|now watching : Hatsukoi Limited|

So I was watching Hatsukoi Limited the other day and I found it quite interesting to say the least. It still blows my mind how difficult is to find an ecchi show that isn’t either a) ridiculously dumb show followed by even more stupid plot or b) so shameless to the point that it’s not even funny to watch. Luckily, this wasn’t either of those. It’s always nice to find a show that makes you laugh with it and not at it, sort of like Sora Kake.

I get the feeling that this is going to be like School rumble without the bullshit of watching the whole thing and still nothing happens.  Don’t get me start on the OVA. They only got 12 episodes after all so I thought that I’d sticking with this one. Seriously, I’d be amazed if they manage to screw this one up too. Maybe the author learned from her errors ?  Quick review and thoughts as follow:

not for long, twit

 I thought this looked like the Minami-cast for a second

The story starts with Ayumi and her teenage fantasies about being confessed to by a cute guy and all those types of things you only see in fairy tales. On her way home from school, Ayumi gets her wish granted but it wasn’ exactly what she was expecting. A huge yakuza-looking guy appears in front Ayumi and her friends and he gives her a letter. After he is gone, the terrified Ayumi opens the letter and confirms that this is in fact a love letter.

Since she’s too afraid to give an answer to “Monster-kun” out of fear that he might harm her. This guy is following her everywhere waiting for her reply. Finally, because she cannot stand it anymore (and because her friends are too afraid to hang around her anyway) She musters the courage to tell him to stop stalking her. A rival gang who wants to teach Zaitsu a lesson, kidnaps Ayumi mistaking her for his girlfriend. Long story short, he comes to the rescue and beat the crap of them.

The next day at school like nothing happened, Ayumi becomes interested in one of her classmates, a guy named Mamoru. Of course, she has no idea that he’s Zaitsu littler brother till later. Mamoru is oblivious to her feeling towards him until his perverted friend Etsu pointed it out to him. Anyhow, Mamoru isn’t interested in Ayumi simply because he already has someone he likes, someone a lot better looking. Filled with curiosity, Etsu convinces Mamoru to show him who is the girl that he likes. So after school they wait outside of a nearby high school.

no, these guys aren’t watching K-ON

After seeing what Misaki looks like is more than enough for Etsu to want to support his friend win Misaki over. Of course, he has ulterior motives, very ecchi-like motives.  So they go to Mamoru’s home to come up with a plan to win her over. Ha. You know that this is bound to fail no mater what. But who would’ve imaged that a certain someone lives in the next apartment?

While they’re talking, this girl knocks on Mamoru’s window asking if he’s  brother is around. After getting a positive answer, she then procees to enters the house. what’s the deal here? This is exactly why Mamoru didn’t want to Etsu coming home with him. Because the girl that he likes lives next door and she is his brother’s childhood friend at that.

Turns out that Zaitsu has called Misaki to talk about Ayumi and other stuff. He might be all tough looking but in really he is just a big softy. Not like Harima. Meanwhile, Mamoru isn’t cool with being only friends forever with Misaki but in reality there is little he can do to change this. After their chat is over, Misaki is going back where she came from. But not so fast. She is stopped by Etsu who wants to talk to her for a bit.  What gives? Misaki sits down for a moment and listens to him. Big mistake right there, Misaki. Etsu blurs out some weird mumble that can put any woman to sleep. I’d say that the mumble was a deadly combination of bad puns, To Aru Majutsu no Index monologues, and some GN particles/innovator brain waves.

that’s some powerful geass

They don’t have much tim as Mamoru unintentionally fondles Misaki’s breasts, triggering her auto defense mechanism leading to the scenes you see below. Lies, there are no unintentional moves in ecchi shows only premeditated tactis.

Some School Rumble comparisons:
Zaitsu is like a combination of Harima and Sado from Bleach I swear.  I’m not sure about the voice actor but his voice seemed familiar. Misaki, the babe of this show, reminds me of Suou Mikoto who looks like Yakumo at the same time. Kei, Yaumi’s friend, is basically the spoiled Eri Sawachica and last but not least Yaumi is probably Tenma, maybe little less dumber than her.

Verdict? Let’s ask Haruhi

  1. I really like the character designs… and that everyone appears to have pretty normal proportions (instead of being ridiculously big busted or just lolis)… I’ll have to check this out.
