(12ish episodes ?)
What’s it about ?
Slice-of-life high school series… with body swaps.
Taichi, the main dude. Aside from an heavy interest in wrestling, he’s quite generic. Swaps out bodies midway with…
Iori, the fanciful and hyperactive girl. Technically the president of the “Student Culture” club (made from the 5 weirdoes who didn’t fit anywhere else), although she doesn’t act like it.
Himeko, the straight-laced girl who’s constantly annoyed by everyone else’s antics.
Yoshifumi, the casanova, and Yui, the shy girl, swapped bodies last night for a bit, which was very confusing to them both and quite awkward.
So far, nobody has a clue why this is happening or how.
This is a lot more restrained than usual for studio Silver Link (BakaTest, CxCxC, Dusk Maiden of Amnesia), who are normally known for more showy directing techniques and artificial colour palettes. It’s still quite good-looking, and I like the effects used for denoting the body swaps.
Also, there’s refreshingly nearly no fanservice.
This is a fun little series. The main characters have very good chemistry and play well off each other, which is essential for such a premise.
I was already hooked when the first half of the episode was previewed a week ago, but this confirms my initial good impression.
