An unsatisfying CM has been released for upcoming childhood friend based romance series, Oreshura – the video being composed of four still frames at most, camera panning across all of them unamusingly.
Rather than a promotional clip, it’s more just as if some key visuals have been released through the video below – and indeed, minus the male character, all is looking rather lovely. Being an A-1 Pictures production, this series, which set to air January of 2013, is particularly worth recognizing in how the characters are not of the fast food menu sort – or at least not in full. The visage of each is memorable, and the seifuku of blue is as unique as an extensively rehashed uniform can be – a respectable level of improvement over a certain ongoing A-1 Pictures work.
Unfortunately, even if one says something positive of the visuals however – the plot remains a plain vanilla harem. Assuming the anime will take after the source material, there is no redeeming factors in that respect – upon the series’ start, the female characters almost instinctively seek out the protagonist, and subsequently then attempt to mate with him.
Indeed, in these sort of tales, it’s as if the heroines have some kind of dependency on the main character for their sanity – as if required in order not to turn into a sorrowful mush, or the more rare yet amusing byproduct of yandere. Instead of a “romance”, it seems something more so of a compulsive obsession – although it’s worth noting that a few might define the two similarly.
In either case, if there happens to be any fans of series with females suffering from a deficiency of incompetent protagonist, then this is likely the ideal remedy.
