Hello everyone, summer comes to an end and also most of shows from the anime summer season have ended. I’ve picked way to many shows this time but I’d like to share my impressions with you about the stuff I’ve watched theses last few months.
This time I will cover up the Anime Summerson 2011 in a different way, instead of writing a post with every show, I will make a single post for every show I’ve watched. I just wrote too much text this time (3300 words) for one single post. So you can expect a new anime post, every 2nd day.
In the next few days I will show you reviews of the following anime shows
Ikoku Meiro no Croisée
Kaitou Tenshi Twin Angel
Blood – C
I will only write about the shows which have ended, maybe I’ll cover the ongoing shows later.
Ikoku Meiro no Croisée
This 12 episode long show takes place in Paris during the nineteenth century, it is a lovely slice of life show, about the daily life adventures of Yune, Claude, Oscar and the hilarious but also enchanting Alice, in a shopping Gallery somewhere in Paris. The main character is Yune, a 13 year old girl from japan and for whatever reason, she traveled to Paris to live at the house of Oscar and his grandson Claude Claudel, who owns a small iron workshop in the Gallery.[singlepic id=1438 w=320 h=240 float=none] [singlepic id=1441 w=320 h=240 float=none] The Blanche family who is running a huge mall is the natural enemy of the small shops from the Gallery and Alice the youngest daughter of the Blanche family appeard like the antagonist in this show, she’s a spoiled brat with a rotten personality, who is crazy about japanese things.
As she learned about a japanese girl living nearby, Alice is beside herself with joy and wants to get to know Yune. After a few episodes I really started to like her and her weird but likeable character and top of that she is adorable, Yuuki, Aoi did a great job with the voicing of Alice.

This show is quite lighthearted and funny, because the cultural differences between Yune and the other characters, there occur a lot of funny situations and misunderstandings. Yune isn’t used to the european lifestyle and Claude doesn’t know anything about japan and always gets the wrong idea about the things he is being told by Yune and Oskar.
[singlepic id=1444 w=320 h=240 float=none] [singlepic id=1445 w=320 h=240 float=none] Well, sometimes the show leaves it’s way of being lighthearted for example when Claude is overly harsh torwards Yune when she comes too close to his personal issues, when they show how the poor people in Paris live or when it is shown what the rich going to get married girls have to sacrifice because of their social position. Or when we learn something about Yune’s past.
