Kotoura-san (AniDB|MAL)

Genre: Angst, Clubs, Comedy, Contemporary Fantasy, Manga, Romance, School Life, Super Deformed

Plot/Summary
Quote:* Based on the four-panel online manga by Enokids.

Ever since Kotoura Haruka was a little girl, she was able to read the minds of those surrounding her. And even though this gift may be special, in her life so far it only had devastating results: Her innocent babbling led to the divorce of her parents, who then left her with her grandfather. And in school Haruka loses all her friends, since none of them would or could admit the truths Haruka was able to so easily read in their minds.

Haruka transfers to a new school, but has no hope of finding friends, and thus decides to keep quiet about her ability. That is, until she meets Manabe Yoshihisa, an imaginative slightly perverted boy, who becomes her first true friend, vowing to always stand by her side. Soon the enthusiastic Mifune Yuriko, president of the Paranormal Society (ESP) club, learns of Haruka's ability and vehemently invites her — literally dragging her off — to join the club. There the club's only other member, the under-tall, level-headed vice president Muroto Daichi welcomes her. Both Yuriko and Daichi readily accept Haruka... and for the first time she is happy, surrounded by friends, who do not treat her like a freak.

Comment:
Od mnogih okarakterisan kao jedno od svetlijih iznenadjenja prosle sezone, Kotoura-san je grubo receno osrednji pokusaj uklapanja ljudi sa ESP mocima i komedije u skolskom okruzenju.

Osnovna zamisao je da glavni lik, devojka koja od malih nogu ima moc da cita ljudima misli, ima problema sa uklapanjem u bilo koje drustvo. Prva epizoda je prilicno tragicna po nju, svako ko joj je ikada bio drag ju je napustio plaseci se njenih moci. Sve je to edgy, ali potom nastupa kontrast svemu tome, ona se pronalazi u drustvu ljudi koji ne zaziru od nje, i dobrim delom ovo postaje standardna skolska komedija sa manjim obrtom u pogledu citanja misli. Naravno, ne razresavaju se svi problemi sami od sebe, ali se postepeno suocava sa njima uz podrsku prijatelja, takva vrsta price, vise sladunjava nego nesto sto se moze shvatiti ozbiljno.

Sto se tehnicke strane, ne mogu reci mnogo pohvalnog, ali pa ni ukazati na neke nedostatke koji bi delovali previse upadljivo, stilski gledano, ovde cover govori dosta toga, dizajn likova i artstyle je ceo koncipiran na nesto boljem SD crtezu, ali je nepobitno da je SD crtez ono sto jeste, Super Deformed prikaz likova, ma koliko poricali cinjenicu da se cesce koristi radi njegove jeftinoce nego zarad nekog komicnog efekta, ne mozemo govoriti o nekom visoko stilizovanom crtezu ukoliko je on glavna koncepcija jednog naslova. Ostale stvari su animus genericus, voice cast je nesto "bogatiji", ali je zato OP jedan od vecih komada balege koje je anime industrija u skorije vreme iznedrila.

Generalno, ta ideja o socijalnoj izolaciji nekoga ko cita drugima misli, je mogla da posluzi kao solidan materijal za neko ozbiljnije stivo, ali je i sama po sebi relativno ofucana. Ovako, posluzila je kao sredstvo za implementaciju jedne osrednje komedije sa elementima drame, koja opet nije nametljiva i lako se da svariti u jednoj sladunjavoj atmosferi. U neku ruku solidna razbibriga, i mislim da ima onih kojima bi ovaj anime bio sasvim prijatno iskustvo.
