Just When I Thought

Just when I thought I couldn't be surprised by the plots in anime shows one comes along and smacks me silly. I was reading Anime-Empire's web site and came across this:

Midori no Hibi - Midori's Day

Sawamura Seiji is a 17 year old high school student. He is good at fighting and is feared by all the students. His one weakness is that he is terrible with romance. He is known for his right fist, whose punch can knock out anyone.

Due to his bad reputation, he spends his youth without a girlfriend. At the peak of his loneliness, he wishes for a girlfriend. At the same time he makes his wish, a voice shoots trough his head saying "really?!" and before he realizes, a girl wakes up on top of him.

On top of his right arm where his right hand should be that is!

She introduces herself as Kasugano Midori. She's attending another school, but has been in love with him from childhood. Even though this strange event has happened she still believes in herself and in her love for Seiji as his "Right hand lover." From that day forward Seiji and Midori live a strange, amusing and secretive life together.

Based on a popular manga, look forward to this exciting new romance comedy with the same type of humor as Tenshi na Konamaiki ^_^

I really want to know what drugs they are on over there, because it sounds like they must be really good. I found some copies of the manga and am going to check it out I think.

I watched the preview that came out yesterday. I'm... dubious. It'll need to have more substance than just, "Hey my right hand is now a naked girl" to sustain it past an episode or two, but I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt for starters.

Hey, that's the story of my life. Except my right hand lover's name is Rosey Palm.

I discovered the manga a week ago and have read the first two volumes. It is quite good:

I watched the preview, and pretty much recoiled in horror. I can't imagine how this could be good.

Of course, it probably will be. Somehow. I'll still be recoiling in horror.

Try watching the anime or read the manga first. It's not as perverted as some people think. Mahoromatic is the sort of show I'll call sleazy and perverted. Midori no Hibi, OTOH, is a pretty normal show, a bit like GTO. Harsh but sweet at the same time.
