So my quest to inundate Chantelle with anime until she finally succumbs to its inherit charms continues, following on from my successful Chobits campaign that I’m pleased to announce seemed to strike a cord with C as she watched the majority of the series on her own time (and enjoyed it!) without me hanging about to prod her along! :)
Wanting her to experience as much differing genres as possible, the next series I’ve picked for her is yet another one of CLAMP’s works, Angelic Layer, a sweet, humorous (but with enough drama to suffice) little story revolving around a young girl separated from her mother who moves to Tokyo and comes into contact with the world of Angelic Layer, a game where the actions of your ‘doll’ is only limited by the constraints of your imagination.
It is one of those classic feel good anime works and I’m hoping that C enjoys this foray into the anime universe too. However, once Angelic Layer is done, I’m going to switch gears a little and throw the whole project on its head by introducing her to Noir, possibly the best atmospheric mystery/action series ever produced and then follow that up with Death Note, one of the greatest anime series EVER brought to life!
I will however refrain from introducing Ikkitousen to her. Some shows just weren’t made with a female audience in mind! :)
