The Tatami Galaxy (Yojo-han Shinwa Taikei) Special – 01

I’ve had this for the past few days (thanks again go to J-pwq), but I never had time to watch it due to pending examinations. It’s roughly a third of the length of a regular Tatami Galaxy episode, and is essentially just an extra. The special nevertheless still remains true to its roots, with the characters essentially the same from the series: Jougasaki drops everything upon seeing Kaori and Akashi remains to be the quintessential cool and helpful girl.

Kaori can now hold his hand back.

For all the indolence that Higuchi exudes and enacts, he has painted in his imaginative story an accurate portrait of the personalities of the series’s central characters. It’s only seven minutes, anyway. Watch it!

    It’s lacking a bit of the polish of the broadcast episodes, but it’s a fun, whimsical romp. Given that it’s the first special, I’m wondering if we’re going to see more.

    I agree. It’s just a ride into the fantastic, but it lacks focus. As a special, however, it’s quite good.

    I think there are two more specials. I would like to see an exchange between Akashi and Watashi during their date. 😉
