Harukanaru Toki no Naka de ~Hachiyoushou~ Episode 1


Fantasy/bishounen/adventure similiar to Fushigi Yuugi. Group of 8 bishounen rather than 7 (wow, we get another one!), and same old Suzaku, Seiyruu, Byakko, etc. thing going on here (Chinese mythology). Akane and her two guy friends (Tenma and Shimon), are transported to the land of Kyou where beautiful men abound (apparently). Akane is apparently the "Ryuujin no Miko"and is called to Kyou by a mysterious masked man (who I'm guessing is some kind of bad guy). Stuff happens, Akane releases a very strong power and destroys the better part of a small town and she finds Shimon. The End (sorry for the really crappy description lol, but I was too lazy to talk much more about it).

My Take:

Wow, sooooo many bishounen. It's almost scary. I actually liked this show despite it's obvious similaritiess of many other fantasy shows including Fushigi Yuugi, Kyou Kara Maou, and 12 Kokuki. Again, Seki Tomokazu voices Akane's frind Tenma (who looks and sounds quite a bit like another Seki character, Kyo from Fruits Basket), so that definetly boosts this show in my eyes. The voice acting is pretty good all around, and the character designs are quite nice in my opinion. Ugh, but why so many long-haired bishounen? They're always ugly =P. Akane's pretty ok for a female lead, but slightly edging on the annoyance level. Hopefully once all the 8 guys are together it will make for some interesting humor and stuff (since so far there hasn't been much humor, if at all).

Bishounen?! ah, I want to shriek! Nah, they are by no means "beautiful men". And I watched its OVA, which is utter crap.
