Special A

Yes it is the time for the anime adaptation of special A!!! but unfortunately it will not come out till somewhere in 2008 unsure yet..

For those who do not know what special A is all about i will explain. Hikari Hanazono the leading female character has always been placed second to Kei Takishima and Hikari has always seen him as a rival for first place. But Kei really likes Hikari which is obvious to everyone but Hikari because she is really dense.Their wrestling loving fathers first introduced them to one another when they were 6 years old. Assuming that she was the best in wrestling, young Hikari challenged Kei to a wrestling match only to be thoroughly defeated by him. Ever since that fateful incident, Hikari swore to beat Kei in school grades, a sporting event – anything. To do this she has enrolled in the same school as Kei since elementary. Now she attends Hakusenkan, an ultra elite school, that costs her carpenter father a lot of money. Hikari and Kei are the top two students in the school, with Kei holding firmly to that number one position.

I have read the manga version of Special Abut i want to see how the anime will turn out it consist of 24 episodes and the character voices goes as shown:

Jun Fukuyama as Kei Takishima
Yuko Goto as Hikari Hanazono
Ayahi Takagaki as Megumi Yamamoto
Hiro Shimono as Tadashi Karino
Hitomi Nabatame as Akira Tōdō
Kazuma Horie as Ryū Tsuji
Tsubasa Yonaga as Jun Yamamoto

At times the manga gets abit uninteresting to read but i still push on to read it. Here is my manga review

I love how each character develops over the time in the manga and even though eventually Hikari does find out about Kei’s like for her she just brushes it off with her famous quotes “i will beat you”, maybe because with the realisation she does not know how to handle the situation. Kei and Hikari’s relationship is really funny it is a relationship where the girl and the guy both inflict violence on each other for the reasons that she wants to beat him and he-likes-her-but-likes-to-call-her-no-2

Then there is the other 5 that are in the group of seven Megumi, Tadashi, Akira, Ryu and Jun they all have their perks and make the group really fun. But as the manga goes on the characters develop more than just friendly feelings.

Okay so I am eagerly awaiting the animation to see how the anime can compare to the manga but i will know that the anime does not go to greater detail like the manga does so it is kinda lucky that i know the manga for once. thankyou, happy watchings and readings for 2008!!

  2. no it has not, it is still continuing but i think for the anime they will do either 2 series or what other animes do and end it because the manga has not been complete, could be that or they will think of an alternate ending that is different to the manga
