Episode 1 Scenes:
BAMBOO BLADE is a kendo anime. I actually never seen a kendo anime before. The old ones seem a bit TOO old. The drawings of the old ones seem really bad and I can’t stand those. I like cute girls, melon eyes, and so on. Anyway, this kendo anime is quite interesting. Episode 1 talks about a extremely poor school teacher who used to be a kendoka back in the day with his senpai. He met with his senpei in his restaurant and agreed to a contest. The contest is a kendo match between ten girls. Five from the poor teacher and five from his senpai. If Toraji (thats his name tired of using poor teacher) wins he gets 1 year of free meal at his senpai’s dad’s restaurant.
The next day he tried to get more girls into the kendo club but only one member is in their and thats the president, Chiba Kirino (CV: Toyoguchi Megumi). I find this anime quite enjoyable. Especially since Kawazoe Tamaki’s seiyuu is Hirohashi Ryou (Alice Carroll – ARIA The ANIMATION). She’s a pretty good seiyuu and I loved her when she played Alice. Anyone who is interested in Kendo should really watch this anime, its quite good and I read 2 volumes of the manga and found it quite interesting. It may seem boring at first but around volume 2 it got really good because thats when the contest started. Not sure which episode it would be for the anime to start the contest but its definitely worth watching.
I finally understand what Sanzenin Nagi said in Hayate no Gotoku in the episode where Hayate and Nagi goes to the kendo club lol. In the manga, the men does block the characters face and I had no clue who was who, if they choose to not block it they remove a little of the iron bars of the men which makes it look a bit weird. Nevertheless, its still a good series regardless of what Nagi says in Hayate no Gotoku.
Plot Summary: No info given from ANN…
I don’t particularly like OP and ED sang by the voice casts, it just sounds kind of weird but the ED sounds the best so far. Not a huge fan of the OP. Not sure why the ED appeals to me more but its the best sounding and the beat is way better than the OP. Don’t know when the OP or ED single is coming out but I’m thinking sometime in October or November. Sometime this year would be great, as long its not like Fate/Stay Night’s second ED single, that single took like a year to release.
