Hyakko Shoujo-Based Slice Of Life Anime

Jul 29, 2011 @ 6:00 CDT


Hyakko elaborately devises a school life themed slice of life story with an intricate edge of easygoing humor many can relate with – such personal connections are unseen in similar series of the genre.

Our introduction to Hyakko consists of a meeting between viewer and crazed highschool anime shoujo – a schoolgirl has seemingly gone mad and is jumping out the window of the rather fancy private school yet the OP sequence rolls and we are taken to a whole a new scene.

The first of what later on seems to be four characters, starts off the show – Ayumu, one of our cute heroines, is apparently lost after running off after a forgotten item. Before joining back with her “friends”, she’s too concerned with the thoughts of others over even the most ridiculous of matters such as how to initiate a conversation with her peers and under what pretense.

She essentially feels distant from the other students, lacking friends who understand her.

As she is lost, she begins to wildly wander around aimlessly until she luckily runs into a refined and elegant bishoujo named Tatsuki. A comical situation envelops as Ayumu begins to have trouble speaking with Tatsuki, who starts pretty much trying to run away – all whilst Ayumu keeps following her and pondering assorted methods of speaking with her.

Eventually the two come to realize they are both lost, giving neither much else to do than wander aimlessly with the other. Almost immediately after that realization however, we see the window jumping madness from before in its entirety. Not one, but two girls come flying out of the window – fortunately, they are all lost, so they all share something in common.

Once the group of four has met, it’s clear the main characters have all assembled – they begin to seek their proper destination (the next class) in a newly established pack of friendship.

The series quite clearly puts a heavy emphasis on friendship straight from the start as right from the early stages of the series, Ayumu went from no friends to four friends. There’s visibly a diverse difference of interests, backgrounds, and ideology from each of the girls – something best noticeably with the developing rivalry of Tatsuki and Toriko, yet they all appear to get along rather well.

It’s a new fun-filled path for Ayumu, and in-fact each of the girls – one filled with a previously missing element of companionship, adoration, and mischief, welcoming of all viewers.
