So I've started watching a new anime series. I really haven't been "into" anime much lately. I haven't been following new releases or really downloading anything new. THe last series I tried to get into was Kashimashi, but I stopped that after episode two because of how it differed from the manga, of which I was downloading the scanlations.

So I was browsing a random forum, and some people started talking about a new series called Asatte no Houkou. The basic story is that an 11 year old girl and a 20-something year old woman swap ages (not bodies, just ages) and have to deal with their situations. The young girl's brother is also the ex boyfriend of the woman, and they're not on friendly terms.

It's an interesting series I think. It's not very action-oriented, it's a litle slow and very character driven. One of the major points of the series will be how this experience changes the lives of the two women who age-swapped once it's over. The young girl felt like a burden, while the older woman was a cold bitch.

It's certainly not a series for everyone, but I'm liking it so far. The surreal situation seems like it's handled in a relatively "real" fashion, and not overly comedic or exaggerated. I'm definately looking forward to watchign more of this show to see how these two girls handle their situation and how it changes their lives, both during and after it's over.

If you're home this afternoon while I'm driving home and call you you'll hear about it then too.
