Editorial Reviews

There are far worse things than having to deal with your ex-boyfriend's little sister or your older brother's ex-girlfriend. But that's something Karada Iokawa and Shoko Nogami have to learn the hard way when a magic wishing stone inexplicably grants Kara

If you are reading this, you're probably like me. I've been looking for unusual anime experiences; I've gone through the first few tiers of anime, so when I bought this set I wasn't absolutely sure how I would like it. However, this DVD set was very surprising in its relaxed introspective unfolding of the plot. I will tell you that the 2 protagonists pictured on the cover emerge to find their lives exchanged. I watched the 12 episodes in one day and I still haven't understood it all. In other words, it will bear repeated viewing.

The character designs are attractive and the background scenery impressed me as rather "Karin"-esque; by this I mean sort of water-colory, but it is all very nicely done and didn't detract from the story. In fact I was blown away by some scenes, the quality was that good. Have you seen "Kamichu"? It was that good.

The music is excellent. I'm constantly surprised at how good anime music is. This is no exception. I usually buy the soundtrack CD of any anime I own, and I'll be looking for this one also.

In short, this is a gem that won't get too much exposure from the mainstream viewers. A major reviewing website said that this 2006 production could easily be a highlight of the year.

The audio is Japanese stereo and your only English option is subtitling. This shouldn't put anyone off, as the Japanese inflections are charming and the speech isn't so fast that you find yourself reading and not watching. I thought I would have a hard time, but enjoyed it immensely!

The only extras are textless opening and closing, and Sentai Filmworks other release trailers (6 of these).

12 episodes on 2 DVD's.

Thanks for reading and if you agree with me this is what you're looking for please let me know with a better review than mine :)

Karada is mature young girl who lives alone with her older brother. She has a happy life, but she hates being treated like a child and wants to be all grown up. Shoko is a stoic and practical young woman who has just returned to Japan after living overseas. After running into each other one night at a local shrine, they exchange ages.

This is a very character driven show. And the characters are well driven. Upon suddenly finding their ages switched, Karada and Shoko very reasonably try to hide what has happened and search for a solution. But also very reasonably, they can't keep this up for long, with Karada's worried brother and Shoko's limited pocketbook. It was interesting at how realistically the situation was handled. I've seen the adult-becomes-a-kid thing in anime before, but normally either the character doesn't change his retinue at all or he hides his situation and no one really notices. But Living for the Day After Tomorrow asks the question "If this impossible situation were to occur to a normal person, what would really happen?" The answer this show came up with is "It would open their eyes". Both characters learn new things about themselves and the people and world around them. Karada learns the value of growing up and Shoko learns the value of enjoying life.

This is a sweet story about growing up. It is only 12 episodes long, which is the perfect length for the story it tells. It is Japanese audio only, with English subtitles. Extras include clean credits and trailers.

Other shows of interest: Kamichu! and Emma: Victorian Romance
