[videos no longer exist]

Ever since the announcement and checking into it, been loving the OP and ED with Savage Genius and Roundtable/Nino (of NHK fame <3), respectively. The OP especially has hooked me in big time. :slight_smile:

The show itself looks like a teens with superpowers type show from what I could tell, and I’m really looking forward to it - probably third behind Maria Holic and Hidamari.

Thanks for posting those. I love them! I have this preordered and can’t wait for it!


#4

You and PP need to move out here and open a Section23/Sentai anime theater for me… so I can watch everything. :slight_smile: I’ll bring soda and snacks!


#5

Hmm… not sure how I feel about living in Texas… LOL :stuck_out_tongue:


#6

You know, I’m really loving the animation style of this one. I’m glad I preordered it. I’m looking even more forward to it!


#7

I feel the same about TX. lol I’m in the left coast. :wink:

Yeah the animation style in the intro is very stylish, almost Shaft-like. It can’t come out soon enough.


#8

Dragoon can come live in WI and I’ll go to TX :stuck_out_tongue:

Manga has been out in English for awhile.

The Manga is more supernatural than a superhero Anime.
Even though the Manga is also billed as “superhero”.

The idea behind the Manga may have been a Quartet.
It ends up with at least 5 to 7 “hero” characters involved in battle.

The Battle that had five Katoha (one of the mains) was the missing character off visiting relatives.

Usually same 6 with an additional rotating character.
This was the Manga, which may or may not be close to the Anime.
It would be more accurate to say a group of demons and humans lead by a Quartet to protect their town.

This is most likely a great Anime.

I do recommending reading the Manga.

Congrats on Section 23 coming out with this Anime.

Texas isn’t too bad if you can ignore all the Cowgir… er, Cowboy fans…


#11

Eh, close enough. I only stick to the good parts of the country, and they’re all on the East Coast. :wink: Though we do unfortunately also have Georgia…LOL

Just be happy I got your gender right!

Taking back my recomendation on the Manga for the moment.

Volume 5 came out in September, Checked with B&B there is no date for the next volume.

Considering Volume 5 end in a kinda cliff hanger.

It most likey better to save your money for the Anime.

I did read the side notes where Suzhito Yasuda did mention a delay in Manga due to the anime.


#13

What would you say the story is like?


#14

I would say its Supernatural Slice of life story with combat with a touch of harem.

Besides the character being interested in protecting the town, I am not sure why it is described as Superhero.

Protecting the town is part of their job. Unlike a superhero who chooses to protect a town for their own reasons.

Now that the search works… finally found this thread! :slight_smile:

Yozakura Quartet - Episode 1 “Cherry Blossoms Bloom”

Now available on the Online Player!!


#16

and now available on VOD!!

Is anyone watching this???


#17

I am watching on online player.


#18

I watched on VOD, it is significantly different from the Manga.
I can see how the super-hero slant is being pushed.

Not sure how a demon protecting a town of demons = superhero.
I am aware the definition of a superhero in Japan is different from here.


#19

when I first started watching this show I instently fell in love with this anime by the end of the OP


#20

I am! I am! :lol:

It was a good first episode that left me wanting to see more. A nice introduction of the characters too. Just enough to whet the appetite.
