Asatte no Houkou was fairly high on my list of Fall 2006 anime to watch mainly because it wasn’t an h-game harem anime or a lame shounen anime. It’s more like a slice of life anime with a twist. Asatte no Houkou is the story of a girl who wants to grow up and a woman who wants to start over.

Kin-Iro no Chord is the long awaited anime about band! As a band nerd, I pretty much have to watch this and enjoy it. So does the anime end up looking sharp or falling flat (ugh!)?
