【Given Episode1】The Anime, Given, “Attracts” You 100 Times MORE.
※Please note that this article includes some spoilers of Given Episode 1. Most parts consist of a “love” story by a men band group, with no battle, fantasy elements. It is an awesome story. We really recommend that you should watch Episode 1 for starters.
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Given Episode 1….”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “For those who have thought it would be more animated if it was made into Anime…”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “YOU WERE SO CORRECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
★Chara look more animated than the ones in Manga.
Boss( 'ω') “From how you describe, I can tell Episode 1 of Given was so interesting, huh?”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “I would say it was【awesome】than… interesting. It was well-depicted, I mean, that made me think that I really want to watch the next Episode more than when I read its Manga!”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “There’s nothing like battle or fantasy elements in Given, but it only consists of a ‘love’ story by a men band group. Two high school boys, Sato Mafuyu-Kun and Uenoyama Ritsuka-Kun, started being attracted by each other one day and they ended up forming a band group…. Their totally opposite personalities were well-depicted in Anime!!”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Especially for Mafuyu-Kun, I felt his laziness more in Anime than in Manga. Like… how he speaks, or how he behaves… That’s why I felt ‘so good~!’ at his gap when Uenoyama-Kun and his members played as a band with Mafuyu-Kun being frightened~! I felt he was more animated in Anime, with his non-verbal emotions, than in Manga~!!”
★Their relationship is more animated in Anime than Manga
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Here’s what. Given is a story where people, who have complicated circumstances, get together. It’s not anything like good people are struggled by bad villains.”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “The band was formed by college students, Nakayama Haruki-San and Kaji Akihiko-San, other than main chara high school boys, Sato Mafuyu Kun and Uenoyama Ritsuki-Kun but… I felt a more relaxing atmosphere from them in Anime than in Manga~! Why? I felt they were a little more calm and simple in Manga but in Anime, especially Nakayama Haruki-San and Kanji Akihiko-San were actually kidders!”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “The images differ a lot because of their actual voices and movement in Anime! Of course, these two boys have such complicated issues, which only one cannot solve…. Since I know the last half of the story, I feel heartwarming （・∀・）atmosphere from them..”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “And! The relationship between Sato Mafuyu-Kun and Uenoyama Ritsuka-Kun was lively too~! It’s more like…. I get the butterflies from them… Hehe… They always make me smile.”
★Their performance scenes are more lively in Anime than Manga.
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Yeeees~, this part!!!!! This one might be the best part of all with its Anime version!!! The live performance by three!!! It was pretty short but the image was so beautiful and the music was lovely too…! Above all, the facial expressions of three boys when they were playing were so good that Mafuyu-Kun ended up coming back to them later to join the band!!! Understandable!!!”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “I know it’s hard for me to tell you the attraction of “music” just by sharing all these images in this article but you might feel some from a trailer…! But anyhow, if you watch Episode 1, you will definitely feel ‘Wow! Awesome!!’!!”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “By the way, Mafuyu-Kun’s pet dog, Kedama (毛玉 / Pomeranian), which appears as often as him at the ending, was super cute too… Just like an angel…”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “So! The Episode 1 was full of positive elements… easy to understand, lively… making me want to watch more…! What’s love by four boys gonna be like…. This is absolutely one of the most recommended 2019 Summer Anime!”
★That popular Given’s official illustration book will release on July 19th! It’s the perfect book which can entertain us with beautifully drawn illustrations!
