First of all, I will now refer to this series as either “Someday’s Dreamers” or “SoraMahou” because the title is a pain to type.
Second, editing a post in both WordPress and Windows Live Writer is a bad idea. Don’t do it.
Okay, so long story short, Sora gets to Tokyo and saves a guy and an old woman. There’s also a bit of exposition on mage training – it takes one month and is composed of a homestay with a mage and classes in the bureau. She eventually hoofs it and gets to the class in the Magic Bureau, albeit late. After introducing herself, taking a quick test, and making friends with someone, the class takes a skills test – converting water into ice. Concentrating on her tank of water, she notices that a classmate is the same guy she saved from a while back, Midorikawa, and he seems to intentionally keep his distance for some reason. Annoyed from that, Sora gets all emotional and turns her water into a huge icicle formation, drawing the awe of her classmates and the ire of another. On her way home, she stops by a lot of places and eventually grows to like it there. As she arrives, she finds out there’s another student having his homestay there as well – none other than Midorikawa himself.
So the pacing’s turning out to be how I expected it to be (the snail’s kind). Lots of new characters, which is good, and I do of course hope that we get a lot more stuff going on between them, like why Midorikawa’s kind of a jerk, or why the other classmate is, for the lack of a better word, bitch. I mean really, that’s what slice of life is all about – the characters, the events, and the world in general. Considering I don’t really watch a lot of shows with much dedication, save for some genres (eg: slice of life, comedy), I’m definitely going to see this through.
