Paripi kongming/Koumei is one of the more unique shows to come out of spring 2022, and good lord it is a banger, and I’m not talking about the OP of this show, the entire thing is just whoo. Personally, I haven’t watched anything close to this, but it gives me sorta Hinamatsuri vibes. Start to finish it’s just a fun show to watch. Story: I don’t what it is but it’s really fun to watch an 1841-year-old tactician use his knowledge of military strategy in the music industry,which ngl is somewhat of a war zone itself, helping this "songstress" in her journey. Animation & Sound: This comes from studio P.A works, guys behind charlotte, angel beats and a lull in the sea. So yeah dude, your eyes & ears are in for a treat whether it’s the opening, the ending or throughout the episode their animation quality & the sound stays on point. They nailed this show Yo. Characters: The show is taking it’s time with developing the characters which is really good and much needed. Imagine, what if your great grandpa was to be iskeaid in 2022, what would he do with his knowledge? How would he adjust to this new world? And that’s why the interactions between our statesman/paripi hehe with the modern world is just something that is refreshing to see. Overall: Every Year or season there's a banger of a show, that just goes under the radar until much much later, shadowed by much bigger shows.This feels like that.But Every Minute of this show feels like a second, there’s just something about music, it just makes time go zoom and since the entire show is based around that,so you end up feeling like “wait its already over?? MAAAN!”. So, DO NOT SLEEP on this Anime. If you like music, you’re aboslutely gonna love this. So, check it out Yo, Paripi koumei is the hero we needed for the music-based anime category So cut the isekai shit son cause you know they’re just transitory Now please take my advice and heed it If you don’t wanna , then at least take the manga and read it.
