NouKome - Generic romantic comedy for the fall season 2013?

Preview 18. September 2013 14:17

Hello,

Today we'll have a preview of the upcoming anime series "Ore no Nounai Sentakushi ga, Gakuen Love Come o Zenryoku de Jama Shiteiru" that is going to air in this packed fall season 2013.

Yes, the title is long and I'm going to refer to this series from now on with the official abbreviation "NouKome". I wonder if there's a reason for these absurdly long names...

This light novel is written by Takeru Kasukabe with illustrations from Yukiwo and is going to be adapted by Diomedéa, the same studio who animated Sola and Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu.

NouKome

The story follows the adventures of Amakusa Kaede, an high school boy who has a problematic supernatural power called "Zettai Sentakushi" who forces him to follow one of the two orders which pop up randomly within his mind.

Think of it like a typical visual novel choice box. One day, In order to avoid choosing the option where he has to "fall from the sky wearing female clothes", he ends up choosing to have "a beautiful girl fall" on him. This happens immediately as a mysterious blonde girl named Chocolat falls right on top of him.

Just as you can see from this promotional video, we can expect a lot of fanservice and comedy from this anime series while I do not foresee any kind of drama coming out of this story.

The character design looks pretty good, but the animated scenes were so few that it's hard to predict what will happen with this series production quality.

As far as I can see, there are no famous seiyuu working on this project. We have many newcomers like Kaori Sadohara (Sandra from Mondaiji-tachi) in Chocolat's role, Yui Kondou (who is at her first important role in an anime series) in Furano Yukihira's role and many others.

NouKome

NouKome will start airing on 9 October 2013 and will occupy the relatively empty Wednesday slot, making it a good candidate for coverage on a weekly basis.

My coverage line-up for this season is still undecided as I'm waiting to watch the first episode of all the upcoming series in order to choose what to cover.

You will be able to check my schedule on the fall 2013 preview page when it is ready together with a compilation of all the preview I wrote.

NouKome

Concluding, NouKome looks like an entertaining anime series and I'm really looking forward to see the first episode.

See you soon,

Is it just me or are the powers of the protagonists getting more and more random/interesting?


A must watch for me, the chaos we can expect from a show like this

Yeah, the powers are getting really strange, especially in this case. I mean, a visual novel choice box appearing over his head? *laughs*

I'm also curious about Chocolat's existence, was she created by the guy or what? Is she related with his powers? :O

Same here, hopefully I'll cover it too so we can talk about it together here. Really curious about which situations he will find himself into with that power...you?


*prepares the ranking sure that it'll match Fukou Da*

Wonder what happens when all his options are terrible... *laughs*

She's probably related, but who knows if they're even gonna give us a serious plot. *looks at Nyaruko-san*

Hahah, Kaede seems pretty distressed about his powers. Though who can blame him if most of his choices are like the "fall from the sky in female clothes" *imagines the choice between meeting a yandere and getting locked in the lion's cage in a zoo* which would you pick?


*cries while glancing at three potential girls*

Poor boy...*laughs*

Well, let's see, even if I don't really forecast any kind of drama coming out of this series. Light-hearted for the win!

Ahahah, I would probably go with the "meeting a yandere". At least I would die "loved" by someone! You?


*evil smirk* The gray/white haired looks like my type already. Yours?

I think I would take the lions... *looks at Touma's harem*

I can't really say for sure yet but I'm guessing the white haired one, the redhead and Chocolat. Not necessarily in that order...

Coward! Remember that your right hand doesn't work on them. Even if you defeated the Archangel Gabriel, you would just die directly against a lion...

So... I should get mauled by the yandere for having a harem and by the harem for getting another girl?

...WHY?! why can't I escape?

Use your "sogebu" ability! It shall help you escape both but lose both, leading to not dying while saying "Fukou da!" >.<

Light novels compete for a narrow audience with many (outwardly) similar stories. What decides whether the reader will stick to the series is the writer's ability, but what decides whether the reader will even try a book out are the cover and the title. The writer can't affect the cover quality, so necessarily the fight moves over to the title.

In other mediums, the arms race of ever longer and more descriptive titles would eventually work against the books, since too long a title would normally make it awkward to discuss the work and take it seriously, but the otaku audience is unique in its tendency to give any series an original 4-mora nickname anyway - Haganai, Oreimo, Watamote... there are no length restrictions since the full title will only be used sparingly anyway.

feal87

Still, we're getting out of hand here with these titles. You know the title is absurdly long when the writer itself refers to it officially with the short name Noukome. *laughs*

Haganai, Oreimo and Watamote were titles created by fans for convenience because the original title wasn't THAT long to begin with. This series on the other side...*looks at the 73 characters long title*

I see Haganai's shortened title appear in official material, so I can only think it was made with the intention to be shortened, too.

Yeah, you're right on that one. Found info that the abbreviation "Haganai" is defined in the author's afterword in the first light novel. :O

I'm kind of looking forward to this series because of that VN choice box idea. hahaha. just imagine a life where you'll have to choose what to do next :3 it'll be funny if the choices are totally absurd.
btw, any thoughts of this turning into a harem somewhere along the run? I remember seeing a few girls in the key visual and a full set of girls in the character list..

Not sure how many girls there will be, but there's an high chance of this becoming quite crowded indeed...

Who is your pre-season pick this season, Feal? My Furano is my waifu for this series ^.^

I'm actually interested in this protagonist's ability...think about! IF you could choose A or B, that means you have control of the situation (well, in a minor way). This is almost like an incomplete future-read ability. The flaw: if something embarassing is going to happen by the given choices (to be expected a lot in this series), then...well you'll know it will come and can't avoid it...

Furano too...*prepares his trusted pitchfork*

Yeah, he's bound to be in some serious trouble because the choices available to him will likely be extremely embarrassing considering the light-hearted theme of the series...


So many great series to follow in this season...*_*

No please no pitchforks. That was two seasons ago. This season, we are using...Harisen for all the tsukkomi!!


Well, we haven't seen enough protagonist face awkward situations have we? Only this time, the protagonist has a choice which to chose, where before, the protagonist just had to face it...

What do you mean "this" season? Every season is great!! There is always at least 5 series per season that I wait for, and I usually watch 20 series per season that are at least good on my list...!

"relatively empty Wednesday spot"
Somehow, this season, half the shows I chose to follow air on Wednesday O.o. And about another 1/3 on tuesday.

Are you sure? Because on Wednesday (Japanese times) the only series airing this season are Tamayura and Free while on Tuesday we only have BROTHERS CONFLICT, Senyuu and Gifuu Doudou.

That would mean you are watching four series?

Oh you meant next season. Let me check on my list...

I have in my to-check list (not sure what to cover yet) :

1) Kikou Shoujo wa Kizutsukanai (Monday)
2) Tokyo Ravens (Tuesday)
3) Kyoukai no Kanata (Wednesday)
4) Noukome (Wednesday)
5) Galilei Donna (Thursday)
6) Infinite Stratos 2 (Thursday)
7) Golden Time (Thursday)
8) Nagi no Asukara (Thursday)
9) Strike the Blood (Friday)
10) Little Busters Refrain (Saturday)
11) Monogatari (Saturday) (continuation from last season)
12) Yozakura Quartet (Sunday)

So Thursday is the busiest day of this season, but wednesday isn't so bad with two series already.

Always and always, Thursday thru Sunday are the much busier schedules. But it's good since most people are free on those days, of course unless they have work to do on those days (me included; I stay up a bit late to see them ASAP).

Episode 3 was very interesting!!
I couldn't stop laughing!
It might be my best of anime on this season..


By the way, this animation stage is Mito-city.
In honor to same stage of "Girls und Pantzer",
Episode 3 title became "Girls and Panchira(Showing Underwear)"? XD
