Special A

Friday, January 23, 2009
AM SO PIMPING THIS ZOMG AWESOME ANIME WHICH I FINISHED YESTERDAY


FINALLY. Finally an anime interesting enough to attract me. It's been like what? a year? 2? since I last watched an anime and gave up hopes for a smashing comedy romance the likes of Ouran and The Wallflower.

It's been kinda hard to return to the anime world after you cross over to the jdrama world where the guys are real......actually no that is not it. It's just that when you sell your fangirl soul to JE there is no turning back whattheheck lol. But I was bored after exhausting all the good dramas available and needed a break before Massu's new drama airs along with a whole slew of other promising Spring dramas so I can enjoy them properly later =P

Enter Special A (24 Episodes) which I remember it being rec. by a few people but I was too caught up in the awesome lineup of Summer jdramas to care....till now.


It's of those high school comedy romance with lots of bishies which is like MY FAV. GENRE OF ALL TIMES
♥ The plot is simple: Hikari (black haired girl in 6th pic), who was the best in everything since young, lost that title after meeting and losing to Takishima Kei (blond one in 3rd pic) in a wrestling match and since then has always been second to him. In her desire to beat him, she enrolls herself into the same school as him where both are the top 2 students with Kei being forever number 1 much to her annoyance.


The S.A. is the elite class of the elites and is made up of the top 7 students: Kei, Hikari, Jun, Megumi, Tadashi, Akira and Ryuu. Typically, they are not only smart and hot but also DAMN RICH. Ouran much? =DDD Needless to say, Hikari is the only poor one. And yeah, none of them ever attend classes and spend every day sipping tea in a greenhouse specially constructed for them.

AND KEI'S DAD (5th pic in green) IS PROBABLY THE YOUNGEST AND MOST USELESS DAD I'VE EVER SEEN SRSLY YOU KNOW ANIME IS REALLY SCREWED UP WHEN THE DAD LOOKS YOUNGER THAN THE SON -_-"


My instant fav. in the beginning was Kei cuz ALSDJFLASDKAF LELOUCH VOICE HOKAY OMG I LOVE LELOUCH LIKE I LOVE MOIST CHOCOLATE CAKE
=d Sexiest voice evar rawr~! I tell you that voice is teh sex So yeah, I'm actually in love with the voice and not Kei really cuz I keep seeing Lelouch every time he speaks srsly Lelouch ♥ Such a genius badass yet still has a touch of kindness to him so effing LOVE ok ok ok I am going off topic here....


So like I said, this is a comedy romance so guess who's desperately in love with Hikari who is like the densest girl I've ever come across till I feel really sorry for Kei. THE POOR BOY OK having his heart crushed again and again into itty bitty specks of dust by Hikari's clueless and effing hilarious responses to his meaningful romantic ones XD

Kei: "With you, I could go anywhere. Even if our destination was hell."

Hikari: "Hell? I don't want to go there!" *shuns*

She is so obsessed with being his rival that she can't see past towards his feelings really, poor poor Kei. For the most part, every time a romantic scene comes up and you start to feel tugs on your heartstrings, something silly has to go and spoil it all till you end up half crying and half laughing but really the lines in here are WIN

But let's digress a bit.....


Karino Tadashi My fav. character after midway through the anime (byebye Kei) cuz heck, doesn't he reminds you of Massu what with his love for food and that happy cute personality at all times but oh so sexy when you least expect it persona of his???

Tadashi = Anime Massu

My NEWS fangirl heart cannot help but be drawn to him ahhh...


Then there is Jun -Megumi's twin- who I honestly didn't bother giving a second glance to cuz he looks so young and innocent it makes me feel pedo if I were to fangirl him until I met Inner Jun:


ALDKSJFNLAKJSFA WHAT THE HECK OK IS THAT EVEN HIM 8D OMG I AM ALL FOR INNER JUN CAN YOU FEEL THE SEXINESS JUST RADIATING OFF HIM IN WAVES TILL HE MAKES THE EVER SEXY KEI LOOK LIKE NARUTO OR SOMETHING HOT DAMN I SAY INNER JUN FOR SEXIEST ANIME GUY OF THE YEAR I DON'T CARE OKAY HE SO TOTALLY PWNS WITH THAT SMOLDERING EYES OF HIS *DIES*



But..but..but then there is also Yahiro! The evil villain in the begining who has a secret concerning Akira (the black short haired girl) and is something of a bastard but a very cool suave and not to forget handsome bastard I might add who I immediately found alluring cuz dammit I have a weakness for bad guys in anime though why why why do they ALL turn out to be good guys later on actually beats me. Eg: Lelouch, Itachi (WHRYYY?! I WANTED TO WAIL AFTER 2nd SIS TOLD ME THE TRUTH), Gaara etc.

My bad boy radar sucks =C

Anyway, Yahiro ♥ I have nothing to say but . I know I've been switching fav. like goodness knows how many times already but Yahiro's hidden sweetness behind the cold facade he puts up to protect the ones he loves just kills me. The part where he tries to find Akira's lost phone omg his shy awkwardness there totally strike my heart and guess what?

I'm sold. Yahiro wins.

Oh yes.


And here we have Ryuu. Who is probably the only guy I have no interest in. Simply cuz he's too into his animals he bores me. There was one scene though where I almost liked him in which he coolly accepted a delinquent challenge with flashing eyes so determined I was riveted till he had to go and fawn over his wild animals in the next and I'm like wth?


So back to the anime. I think this one could very well top Ouran and I think I have to re-watch Ouran before finalizing my decision but this could very well be my top fav. anime of all times. Not only is it insanely hilarious with witty comebacks and outrageous behaviors but it has the romance Ouran lacked and which I so desperately craved.

You have to admit that the relationship between Haruhi and Tamaki and Hikaru was totally going nowhere until the LAST episode but even then it left much to be desired. Plus I kinda dislike Haruhi cuz her 'I'm not interested' attitude in everything offs me. Special A however balances all the hilarious antics with the anticipated romance between every character.



Almost everyone was paired up slowly but surely except for one (guess who lol) and I'll leave the pairings for you to find out in the anime as I dislike spoilers too. You do not know how hard it is to pick screencaps that doesn't give everything away. The romance in here is heart touching to the max but not sappy to the point you want to gag which is exactly how I like it =D I hate sap. And weak emotional girls who look as if they can break. Which thankfully none of the girls here are.

I only have one minor complaint. Which would be the 2nd ending song omg its such a mood killer since by then the episodes would be getting more serious and omg you cannot tell how annoying it is to have an emotional ending whereby this girl slapped a guy before running away in tears then have the ending song suddenly blare happily CHU-CHURU CHURU CHURU as if ushering in the new year omg never ever pick an upbeat song for the ending srsly.



But other than that? AWESOME ANIME TOO GOOD TO PASS UP SO DO ME A FAVOR AND GO. WATCH. IT. NOW SO WE CAN RANT ABOUT IT TOGETHER
