Hatsukoi Limited: After Thoughts
I just finished watching this another light-hearted anime called, Hatsukoi Limited. This is the 5th light-hearted anime I had watched….consecutively. That’s abit…weird. Usually I mix different kinds of anime in my watchlist, but recently, all I just want to watch are the easy and light-hearted ones. Its not a bad thing you know. Hahahahah!
Anyway, I won’t delay this much further, here’s my review for Hatsukoi Limited.
That question…haunts me all through out the series. LOL.
Well, it can’t be helped. I’m single and definitely not inlove, so I can’t really relate to the question. -_-
Anyway, let’s go back to the topic.
Hatsukoi Limited is an anime about romance fever during adolescence. Usually, its during the adolescence period where the hormones goes wild–I mean…its the period when people first encounter romance. Can you relate? I think all of us can, one way or the other, we do get to experience this type of love.
Its lighthearted and easy to watch. The plot was simple after all. The story showed us some typical romances that usually happen in a generic romance anime. It is more focused girls’ perspective, but we also get enough from the boys’ POV too. In a way, this anime reminded me of the summer anime released last year called, Tsurezure Children.
Just like the mentioned anime, Hatsukoi Limited also focused on alot of couples and the development of their relationships. But what differentiates the two would be that the former lacks intertwining relationships compared to the latter. In Hatsukoi, everyone was somewhat connected. If I were to make a diagram out of all of it, it would look like a “college-kid-made word mapping”. It was entertaining to watch.
Each story arc presented all through out the series were really nice and fun to watch. The development of the characters were consistent. Even though there was already some development from their story arc, the characters didn’t stop to grow as individuals and as a couple all through out the series. Because of this, there wasn’t even a single character that I hate or even condemn in this series. Each one of them has a purpose in the story and got enough spotlight for them too leave an impression to me. I definitely like them all.
The art & animation definitely weirded me out for a bit. There was something about the way each character was design and made. They don’t look like the usual anime characters that I see on a daily basis. Still, it fits well with the story and animation. The animation was unsurprisingly consistent and tight. I couldn’t even find any bad shots from this anime. Though there was something…I’m abit iffy with. Its the ecchi fanservice shots.
Uuuuuhhhhhh….why? I don’t its needed you know, especially the panty shots. I do appreciate the fanservice that was relevant in the story, like the big boobs of Meguru or how hot and chick Misaki is. But the random panty shots…..uuuhhhhh nope. Other than that, I am all good.
Overall, this series was quite fun to watch. Its been awhile since I get jealous of all the romance fever I see on screen. Love is in the air in this anime, that’s for sure. I definitely recommend this anime to people who likes to watch romance anime, or some fluffy light-hearted school animes.
Anyway, that is all for now.
Thanks for reading!!
Curious question though….
Are you in love right now??
