Girlish Number- Random Wednesday Number 1

It’s finally time to launch a series I first hinted at over three years ago! If you need a breakdown over what this concept is, check out my post here.

Girlish Number is an anime inspired by the serial novel of the same name back in 2016.

With further ado, here’s my thoughts.

Gi(a)rlish Number

Spoilers:  None, really.

Genre: Slice of Life.See the source image

Synopsis: Girlish Number is a pleasant diversion from the typical anime I watch. It centers around the main character, Chitose Karasuma. A peppy energetic teenager aspiring to make it big in the acting world. However, she is stuck with low-level voice acting jobs such as one liner gigs (she even comments on how she is a thief because she gets paid to say just one line.). Along the way we meet more popular and successful actress who I assume will be more involved as the ladies star together in a big upcoming show. The episode ends with Chitose finally landing a leading role. Could it be the big break she has always wanted?

Verdict: So I wont be assigning a score like in traditional reviews. Instead, I will discuss if I am likely to continue watching the series. And despite what I assumed going into the show based solely on the name, I am actually very intrigued to continue watching this show. The colors are bright and keep you engaged. Chitose is actually an enjoyable character to lead the show. There is also a dude.

If I finish the series, I will do a more in-depth review. In the meantime, if you have seen Girlish Number, let me know what you thought. I cannot ask for recommendations because it will be random.

Manga Monday: My Hero Academia Volume 1

Oh, boy. One of the mangas I was most hyped to get into and now it is here. Did it live up to my hype? Lets find out!

My Hero Academia was created by Kohei Horikoshi and distributed through Shonen Jump Comics.

9781421582696

Spoilers: Considering this is just Volume 1, not really.

Plot- In this version of the world, humans are born in a similar fashion to X-men. Kids have quirks which is the equivalent of super powers. Our main character, Izuku Midoriya, is quirkless. This obviously adds to his charm. He eventually inherits a very powerful quirk All For One (Which summons the dude in the cover. The one in the costume). From here, He joins the academy for super heroes.

Characters– Here’s the thing, I like all the characters. Its hard to go into depth since the manga introduces about 6 real players, but we do not dive into a lot of them. The two characters we delve into are Izuku Midoriya and  Toshinori Yagi. Izuku is our main character (The other dude on the cover.). He has two defining moments. The first one is when he sacrifices time (to get points for his exam) to save Ochako Uraraka (another likable character). The other moment is when he stands up to Katsuki Bakugo (the school bully). These two scenes  will make you root for Izuku throughout the manga. Toshinori on the other hand chooses to keep his identity relatively private. He is the former All Might (*reminder* that’s the name of the buff dude). He is reaching his limits as All-Might takes a toll on the body. He sees potential in Izuku and passes the All For One quirk down to Izuku.

The World– Again think X-men in Japan. It is a great idea. However, I don’t know how much of the world will be explored as the story centers around the academy. However, it definitely has potential with all the super heroes and villains running around.

Recap-
Action: You’d probably be surprised to find that there isn’t that much action. There are a few intense fightscenes, but right now it has been more of a “prove yourself” through trail-like events.
Romance– Izuku and Ochako have some potential flames, but nothing has really happened yet.
Plot- The plot has been engaging so far.
Characters– A+. All pretty good.
The World- Like a lot of Vol 1 reviews, it has not been flushed out yet.
Humor- Solid A.

Verdict– A near perfect introduction Manga. It showcases the potential for interesting characters, sly humor, possible love subplots, and intense action scenes. It serves as a great origin manga.

Score- 9 out of 10. Not too many bad things to say. It is not action in every panel, but it does offer a good bit of substance for a Shonen Jump. It does fall into the formulated “no one believes in you, grind, get stronger, become powerful” sequencing that has defined the genre since before I was born. If you can look past it being cliche at times, it is a great take on the genre and worth the read
