"One stormy night." These are the words Mei will say outside of the barn to identify his new friend. "One stormy night." Gabu will say this phrase to finally meet the friend he made in the darkness of the storm. Mei and Gabu had taken shelter in the barn, and in the darkness they comforted each other, only to find that they were very similar, striking a friendship there and then. "One stormy night", and they would finally meet face to face at their promised place and time, but on this fateful night Mei, an orphan goat, and Gabu, a wolf, finally see each other. Will their friendship work? Will their communities allow it?
Uruno, a failure of a wolf, is currently traveling to find himself a new place to call home; but upon chancing across a rabbit, he attacks it only to realize that this particular rabbit is stronger than any predator! Soon afterwards he discovers that this entire forest he has come across is home to similar 'useless animals' that are atypical of their species. He decides to stick around when he meets his love interest in the form of a clumsy cheetah, and with his new friends, he meets the rest of the animals in the forest, causing much hijinx and fun in the process!
In both Animes the charectors are all Animals who can speak. Cute charectors and animation style. As in Useless animals, the animals are all misfits... and totaly unlike their own species. And in Arashi No Yori Ni, a forbidden relationship causes problems for all animal species.
In a lush and detailed fantasy world, magical airships sail amidst floating islands and villas. Luxurious earthly homes lie amidst hillsides of flowers and trees, and a lone pond houses a single shoot of life. Miniature tram cars come and go, ladies’ dresses flutter in the breeze, will o’ wisps dance in the midst of dusk and lights flicker warmly. With a lack of narrative, Iblard Jikan shows us these visions and more alongside a soundtrack of lilting melodies.
Although the stories in these two anime aren't similar at all (because in Iblard Jikan there is no clear story line), it's worth watching them both just because both have amazing scenery. It's really fun to watch how the characters in Iblard Jikan's paintings become real, and Arashi no Yoru ni's characters look kind of puffy like they have real fur, not drawn fur. The animation style of both anime is really worth watching.
On a day like any other, average middle-school-student Yurie Hitotsubashi got the surprise of a lifetime – she became a goddess! Unfortunately, even with her newfound powers, Yurie still can’t manage to find the courage to confess to Kenji, her crush. With Yurie’s fame comes others’ fortune; Matsuri, caretaker of the local shrine, names Yurie the shrine’s new goddess and becomes her manager – for yen and glory! Along with Yurie’s faithful best friend Mitsue, the trio set forth on an adventure to find out what it really means to become a goddess.
Kamichu and Arashi no Yoru ni have one big thing in common: the pacing! Both are, without a doubt, set at a slower pace to appeal to a wider audience. But there's also something about the feelings that are brought about by that pace. Feelings of anxiety, friendship and surprises fill both of these anime.
In present-day Japan, Toshihiko Momota is member of a secret warrior faction called the Kifuuken. The Kifuuken is dedicated to destroying Shokujinji - humans that turn into man-eating monsters when hunger takes them. However, to fate's chagrin, Momota meets and quickly falls for Yuka, a Shokujinji herself! Will their love be able to overcome Yuka's insatiable appetite for human flesh, or will the couple be destroyed by the bestial tendencies of humanity?
Arashi no Yoru ni and Kemonozume are very different anime, but share several features that underpin them. The first thing I thought of after watching Arashi was Kemonozume, and after some thought, the reasons become obvious.
First, the art; both these anime have very unconventional and catchy animation styles, giving each a unique feel, and both are vastly different from each other. They both have a hand-drawn feel, but Arashi's style is that of wispy illustrations for a children's book, and Kemonozume goes for the messy, provocative swipes.
Second, the plot; both anime are about the love/friendship of individuals from antagonistic groups, and their struggles against their respective communities' enmity, and their struggles for the preservation of their relationships.
But be warned. Kemonozume is geared towards mature audiences, filled with violence and sex, while Arashi no Yoru ni is a fairy tale of sorts, and is an enjoyable watch for people of all ages.
Join the king of thieves Jing and his plumed partner Kir as they seek out the greatest treasures in the world - and steal them. From desert bandit fortresses to the innermost sanctums of kings and queens, if there's a magnificent treasure to be had, you can be sure Jing has his eyes (and later his hands) on it.
King of Bandit Jing has a lot of strange creatures which makes it another perfect watch for those that want something relaxed and childish. The entire atmosphere and flow in both Jing and Arashi no Yoru ni are very alike. Both are very befitting for younger fans, or for fans that want something different as a remnant of their old days.
