A dose of fantasy, shall we? Now presenting…DOG DAYS! ^^
Our story begins with war. The Galette Army is overpowering Republic of Biscotti, whose council is discussing the importance of an upcoming battle. The Princess of Biscotti, Millhiore Filianno Biscotti, finally reaches a conclusion…to summon a hero.
Meanwhile, a boy named Shinku Izumi is enrolled into Japan’s International School. Shinku is a sports-lover as well as an acrobatic, fearless of jumping off roofs.
One day, whilst Shinku is jumping off a roof, a dog comes along and grabs a knife that’s been stabbed into the ground…causing a magenta light to appear.
Shinku is transported to the Land of Flonyard! He meets the Biscotti Princess who explains why he’s been summoned.
Shinku’s “job” is to win the current battle. However, these kind of battles are different from the ones on Earth – wars and battles in Flonyard are actually athletic tournaments where nobody gets hurt.
Believing this is all a dream, Shinku agrees for entertainment’s sake. The episode ends as Shinku makes his first appearance as Biscotti’s Hero.
I’ve gotta say, their names are pretty cute~ ^^
I’m looking forward to the development in plot and characterization of this series. And one more thing…the people of Flonyard have animal ears and tails! I’m assuming that the kingdoms of Flonyard are consisted of animal-people hybrids…or something like that.
Plot: 7.5/10 (Well, at least in this episode it is. This is first impression, no?)
Graphics: 8/10 (Not completely to my liking but alright nevertheless…)
Music: 9/10 (Suitable for the fantasy genre)
Until next time!
