Completed: Kotoura-san

Rai, you have stated multiple times that you hate Moe.
Why would you watch a show that is so incredibly moe in design.

Truth be told i almost didn't even give this show a chance.
the proportions... the art it was all just so sickeningly adorable....
however one day after work while i waited for my ride to be done what she was doing i figured... may as well give an episode a shot.
The damn show nearly made me cry.

The first 10 minutes of the show will more then likely rip out your heart and show it to you before shoving it back in and asking kindly to keep watching.

so whast this deceptively moe show about?
Kotoura is a girl with psychic powers... though she doesn't know that's not normal and even when she tried to keep it to herself she cont control what she says and she can't always tell whats being thought and whats being said.
Sadness ensues....
that is until she gets to highschool and meets a perverted boy who seems to thing that the whole reading minds thing is pretty awesome.
Hilarity ensues.
until bullying....
then sadness.... then funny and sad all mixed up together....

essentially what i'm trying to say is that this is a comedy anime that may make you tear up a bit.
It's very sweet and has a lot of heart and it's probably my favorite of the season... well next to the show that happens to air on the same day..... at the exact same time....

i would love to say more about kotoura-san but again i don't wanna spoil anything since half the fun is in the reveal.

The good:
The animation is lovely and fluid and colourful and while it looks quite moe itnever falls into the moe traps of panty shots or stupid annoying helium sucking characters with no purpose other then looking cute.
I can't pick a favorite character cause they are all so diverse and well rounded.
The intro song is fun and goofy but i just smile when i hear it.

The not so good:
the middle drags a bit.... the start and end have pretty muhc a perfect balance but the middle relies a little too much on the goofy aspect or it just doesn't use kotoura enough.... it's not bad but it's hard continue givign something so good when by the end of the first episode i knew it was going to be one of the best shows this season.

The bad:
It's short : ( i would have loved to see more but honestly it told the story it needed to tell... still.. sad to see it end.

OKAY now i gotta go watch some blast of tempest!
