High school boy Ayumu Tamari finds it hard to attend his classes especially since he had to repeat the year due to suffering from a strange syndrome which makes parts of its body's skin turn into a crystal whenever he experiences a strong emotion or stress. To the rescue comes his homeroom teacher Kouya Onihara, who also happens to love crystals. The relationship between them grows as Tamari tries to fit into his classes and other daily activities thanks to the pleasant time he spends in Onihara's office, which allows him to relax more (and crystallize less) acting more naturally towards his classmates.
The animation is stunning, no doubt, however I can't get over the pedo vibes this gives off. Maybe if he was held back 3 years and wasn't drawn like a middle schooler this would be better, but nope, it's just a teacher and a kid who got held back by 1 year. Itbwas extremely uncomfortable to watch and I only finished because it would bother me if I didn't.
This is my very first review for this website, and for starters I'll warn now it won't be very good! The typing may be too small, the summary not creative, but I did warn you it's my first. ;) Kono Danshi, Sekka ni Nayandemasu was a very cute little short about half hour watch. If it'd been any longer, I'd say it was a complete waste of possible productivity. (As if I was going to get anything done! HA.) Though it was very cute, it was very dull, generic and hard to watch. Throughout the entire thing I was having to remind myself on and off to keep my eyes on the screen. Keep watching. You need to watch more Yaoi/Shounen-Ai than anyone in the planet. NO, stop playingwith that! Sadly, yes, that is how most of it went. My main thoughts on this are exactly as I will say: It didn't grab attention. It feels as if the makers were trying their very hardest to keep the audience at bay, but couldn't. The characters (yes, even the protagonist) had little to no backstory. If one person had gotten killed off, no one would have felt the slightest bit of greif. I did, though, enjoy the character designs. The relationship ends up between a student trying desperatley to fit due to a disorder and the school nurse/doctor who cares for him deeply and has become a good friend.cute I'll admit I didn't pay much attention to sound so I left it at a rating of 8. The story, was pretty cute and did give a reason for the two love interests to come together, which is nice. The main thing that boosted my rating and respect for this way up, though, HAD, HAD, HAD to be the art. The art was more beautiful than in most of the anime I had ever seen! Perhaps due to purposely only being a short half hour long clip, but it doesn't matter. Anyone willing to put that much detail into the art deserves high praise. (Especially around the end scene in the 'Garden') Overall, I was very bored, but if you can kill some time (or just really love shounen-ai) you should definetley try it!
Simple story, with simple characters, and simple animation. All in this short is simple, and that's its main strenght. The love story was very cute, and as always, I love the work of Soubi Yamamoto with the ambiance, the drawng and the design. It's like a book for children, and I think this kind of naivety is the very important in the image I have of this short. I can't say I don't like it, but I can't deny that the low budget is omnipresent, and it's a pity. The short has a real soul, and I'm sure it was made with a lot of love and passion.
