Default The natural history of Tanna Japonensis

And before I know it, yet another must-watch game-based anime is showing. Yesterday was truly a red-letter day...

It's interesting, so far. The animation fits the emphasis of the source material on content over style quite nicely; this was almost certainly a much cheaper show to produce than Fate or Warawaserarerumonono, but it's nicely done for the style. And the OP is the best I've seen/heard this season.

And the bipolar presentation, flipping from threats of violence to sickening cuteness with nary a moment's notice, is... beautifully appropriate.

Is the title of the show the same as the title of this thread? I've yet to see anything that resembles it crop up on the intraweb.

Hmm, mabye 蝉の歴史? =p

Hint: Tanna japonensis = ヒグラシ.
So far as I know there's only one new anime series that mentions them in its title... :P

The plot thickens. Oh yes.



The obvious reading of the story seems somehow too obvious, and at the same time hard to discount. Maybe that's why this is being billed as "suspense" rather than "mystery", though?

Somewhat to my surprise, this is shaping up to be my favourite show of the season... the apparent complete absence of any interest from fansubbers is bizarre.

fansubbers are an interesting group.

you can have like six doing the same show and like none for others.

But I'm watching it! I'm just buried in new shows at the moment trying to keep up...

Not easily. It's all rather involved... ^^;

Speaking very roughly, then:

Xrvvpuv (gur ureb) vf qvfpbirevat qnex frpergf yhexvat orarngu gur fhesnpr bs fznyy-gbja Wncna. Gur ivyyntr ur'f whfg zbirq gb, Uvanzvmnjn, unq orra fpurqhyrq gb or sybbqrq jura n qnz jnf ohvyg, ohg gur cebwrpg jnf nonaqbarq nsgre ivbyrag ybpny bccbfvgvba.

At least, I think that's what's happened. I wouldn't trust my listening comprehension on unfamiliar material too far, though. ;_;

And obviously there's a whole lot of cute girl action too. <3

That's a relief. I was beginning to worry that I might be driven to doing it myself, and I have enough projects already. ;)
