Since I’ve had the type of day leaving me with my foot up and ice pack on my ankle, I’m making the rounds on all my blogs to do some sorely needed updating. I need to keep off the foot and keep it on ice till I wrap it for bed so it’s a very good use of my time. 🙂
Peach Girl follows the adventures of Momo, a Japanese high school girl with dark skin and light hair. People think she’s an empty headed party girl but since she’s on the swim team, the chlorine bleached her hair and the sun tanned her skin. All the wants is to be taken seriously as a normal girl, fall in love with her middle school crush, Toji, and be happy. But her "friend" Sae just keeps screwing things up for her in the most malicious ways.
As a fan of the manga, I was just completely stoked to see it on screen. I could see they changed some plot points here and there but it’s generally verbatim from the books. This is pure high school drama and I love every freaking moment of it!! Hell, I even knew the end and I was still biting my teeth and crying like a big mush by the end of it. XD I love this series!! In fact, if you wanna get the Lenni a gift… Naw, I’m kidding. But if you like lovable characters and are the type to yell at the screen when a character does something stupid, this is totally the anime for you. There’s no blood, no guts, no mechs, no sex (that rhymes on purpose) but it’s perfect. Kudos, Miwa Ueda; the anime version of your manga is excellent. ^_^
On a totally random note: I added more to my Zazzle shop. There’s a few sketches I did on stuff now. Yay…
Now, back to icing my ankle. =_=
