On the First Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me: One Underrated Anime
On the First Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me,
One Underrated Anime
Hyouge Mono has become a huge favourite of mine. Sadly not a lot of others agree. But there are some like me that still watch this series and get great enjoyment from it. The reason why so few are watching this of course has to do with a lack of quick subs. I'm really glad at least one group out there is still doing them. Huzzah is a great group that does wonderful underrated anime. Sure it might take a long time to get finished but at least I have the hope that these titles will be completed someday so I may enjoy them. Especially something as wonderful as Hyouge Mono!
So what is so special about Hyouge Mono you might be wondering? I can only speak for myself here but if you really enjoy fun historical anime that features Oda Nobunaga, who is one of the most eccentric and brutal figures in history this anime is for you. While he is certainly a main character, the show actually revolves around the awesome Furuta Sasuke. A lover of art, architecture, and the sheer beauty of pottery, specifically being tea cups and pots for his other obsession being tea ceremony's. Hyouge Mono follows his struggle as he tries to balance rising in the ranks of his group while still being completely obsessed with tea and the more fun aspects of culture.
The idea that an anime based on a dude loving tea is crazy enough but when you add in all the political stuff it becomes something even more special. For me anyway.... I do love my tea and I certainly love history! Add in some great characters, a snazzy look, a very interesting OP, and an interesting story and there you have an amazing anime of the year!
So yeah, go watch Hyouge Mono!
