A romantic comedy almost as hilarious as School Rumble, Special A is all about the never-ending rivalry between Hanazono Hikari and Takeshima Kei. Hikari has always been second to Kei in everything, and her sole aim in life is to defeat him. To that end, she has joined the elite private academy Kei attends, and is part of the S.A or the Special A class. The S.A consists of the top seven students of the school who have special privileges and are nothing like the ordinary high school students. Special A follows these seven in a comical story of finding love.

Sigh, the end of summer! My precious anime-filled summer! *cough cough* So I have two new anime reviews coming up shortly: Special A and Itazura na Kiss. They are both close to wrapping up their storylines, so my reviews should be out in the next month or so. I don’t know why I’m stuck with shoujo anime right now – I swear I was looking for some decent action anime to watch (and review) but they all truly sucked. Oh well – I’ll have to look harder. For now, here’s what I have:
Itazura na Kiss: This romantic comedy revolves around Aihara Kotoko who has loved Irie Naoki all through her high school life. However, Kotoko’s object of love seems almost impossible to reach as Naoki is super smart and handsome while Kotoko is in the rock bottom F-class. Kotoko brings up the courage to confess her feelings but is rejected without a second thought. Fate intervenes and her house is destroyed by a earthquake. Thus Kotoko and her father move in with his high school friend – none other than the Irie family!
Special A: A romantic comedy almost as hilarious as School Rumble, Special A is all about the never-ending rivalry between Hanazono Hikari and Takeshima Kei. Hikari has always been second to Kei in everything, and her sole aim in life is to defeat him. To that end, she has joined the elite private academy Kei attends, and is part of the S.A or the Special A class. The S.A consists of the top seven students of the school who have special privileges and are nothing like the ordinary high school students. Special A follows these seven in a comical story of finding love.
Thats it for now! Hope everyone had a great summer – and looking forward to some great Fall 2008 anime!
"Every era has its own forbidden love" (Prince Hakim) - and the Victorian Age of England was no different. William Jones is the eldest son of the wealthy family Jones, and a member of the upper class gentry. Emma is a simple maid working for Kelly Stowner, a former governess. A fateful meeting between Emma and William, while William visits Mrs. Stowner throws their worlds into chaos as they begin to fall in love. In times where the barriers of social class and wealth are strong enough to create two divided worlds, William and Emma's love seems an absolute impossibility. Emma: A Victorian Romance follows the story of Emma and William's love and the devastating consequences it brings to the families around it as the characters are torn between society and love.
