Kurenai – an odd show that I cannot put my finger on.

Is it supernatural? Is it Jidai (period) style drama? Is it “kid messing up a young man’s life”? Is it “secret organization and assassination”? What is it?

I don’t know. But I do know that the OP looked like South Park X Zetsubo Sensei. X CG (in whatever order you think is appropriate).

The story involves some teenager – Kurenai Shinkuro (played Sawashiro Miyuki – Shinku) seeming with some super powers and can someone to some distance place…

A 7 year old girl – Kyuhoin Murasaki escapes her “prison” inside her rich home with Beneko (what, another Beneko), and being placed under the protection of Shinku..ro (right, not Rozen Maiden).

I didn’t know they have uber traditional rules for women at this day and age in Japan, but somehow, seeing the Japanese Imperial family, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.

All the ultra rich people in Japan has kanji-filled names, like Sanzenen. (Nagi) or maybe that’s just for anime’s sake, because I’ve never met or heard a Tokugawa…except for some chain restaurant owner (?) in Japan. One of my student was Oda (with the right kanji, too, but she knew nothing about Daimyo, or Big Name, referring to famous feudal lords in the warring era). I’ve never met a Toyotomi, Takeda (Shingen), Uesukin (Kenshin), or Sanada (Yukimura).

Ahem. In any case, this is a quite interesting drama (I don’t think it’s action) about a certain girl meeting a certain teenager…I think.

I'm a hardcore Anime Fan and I'm proud of it. I know so many things and I've acquired so much knowledge you wouldn't believe. But my love is anime. I've been drifting in this world for so long that I don't even know what an anchor means. I've seen so many shows that I've lost count. The only thing I'm sure of myself is that I care for the lowly and disenfranchised. I hate the rich and powerful and I love what I do, or what I can do. I like anime and I don't mind watching different types of shows. I have experience in different types of Japanese animation. I would be called an "expert" in a bizzaro world. One day, I'd like to start a revolution. I love the US, pizza, beer, sashimi, Chinese food, and steak. But I love freshly baked bread more than a well-aged steak. In reality, if I were born Japanese I'd be a real, hardcore Otaku. I love to love and I can hate strongly. I'm passionate in nature and I don't mind shedding tears.
