"Kids on the Slope" and "Tsuritama" premiered yesterday. It will be a great hour of anime to look forward to every Thursday for a while. Both shows center around a socially awkward teen transfer student who finds friends that invigorate their lives. The art in "Kids" and "Tsuritama" couldn't be more different, but both styles are pleasing. "Kids" is has a realistic style that I have always loved in anime. Teens who look like teens instead of moe fantasies of teens...this is what we get from "Kids." "Tsuritama" is a bright jangle of colors with intricately detailed backgrounds. "Tsuritama" is a strange fantasy that hopefully will become more explained in future episodes. "Kids" hopefully will continue to be a solid drama in future episodes.
