Wandaba Style, an anime about a boy scientist who recruits a team of aspiring idol singers to travel to the moon, is largely a waste of time.
But the significance of Wandaba Style is that it is what has introduced the Western world to the artist known as Goto-P. It is unfortunate that a work severely lacking in literary merit would serve as the introduction of such a great artist.
Goto-P is an essential part of a balanced moe diet.
We here in the United States must either check out Clannad Another Story or wait until the translation of Narcissu Side 2nd if we want to experience a story worthy of Goto-P’s artwork.
Narcissu Side 2nd is a visual novel where the player takes on the role of a sickly girl named Setsumi as she comes to terms with her mortality or something.
Name: Setsumi. Gender: Female. Blood type: O. Bracelet color (identification bracelet used by hospitals to mark their patients): Blue. Age: 19 (although the official site also says 15, and that she looks like a middle schooler even at age 22).
Goto-P, and his artbooks such as Nagomi Hiyori, are highly regarded by myself, Stripey, Shin, Samukun, and other bloggers whose
tastes in anime girls tend more toward highly underage-looking screen names start with “S”, because of his choice of subject matter. Goto-P depicts nostalgic and carefree scenes with young female child characters, in his own words “wonderful days remembered through all eternity.” His soft coloring style gives his pictures a relaxing feeling.
