Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto ~Natsu no Sora~ 2

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.

    I saw one ep of this show. It’s not my thing at all! Glad you’re enjoying it, though.

    The character designs could use some sprucing up, although that’s not really an option now that the series is in full swing (if consistency is to be preserved, that is). And there appears to have been a deterioration in quality from Ep1 to Ep2, as far as the human figures are concerned (backgrounds are still great). Let’s hope this isn’t the start of a trend.

    Overall, a very promising watch. This one just went on my “Actively Following” list.

    I seem to have a bad eye for quality because I didn’t notice any difference with the quality :<

    The first episode annoyed me a bit, because it was really slow-paced but now I think I’m starting to enjoy waiting for a new episode each week. ^_^
