Learn Japanese with Anime: “Charlotte” (Intermediate Level)


Webmaster Review

88% Brilliant

Although the evaluation of a story is divided according to people, it is evaluated that it is personal. The development drawn into the story is very interesting. Tomori and other characters stand out and are very good. Above all, drawing is the best. The background is the highest level without complaint. It can be said that this alone is worth watching. Also, both OP songs and ED songs are good. There are many inserted songs, each with an impressive finish. The sound BGM is also very good, and the comedy, daily life, seriousness, and excitement are all well created. A serious and unique story with interesting comedy elements. This is an excellent anime that I would like to recommend with Angel Beats !.

2. Synopsis

While on the surface Yuu Otosaka appears to be just another charming and intelligent teenager, he has a secret—he has the ability to slip into people’s minds and fully control their body for five seconds at a time. Yuu has been using this skill for years to gain the highest grades, which allowed him to enter a prestigious high school.

When the enigmatic Nao Tomori catches Yuu using his power, she coerces him and his sister Ayumi into transferring to Hoshinoumi Academy, a school for students with supernatural abilities. The student council of the school, led by Nao, is tasked with secretly tracking down adolescents who abuse their powers. Yuu is forced to join the student council and together, they face formidable challenges that bring him closer to the shocking truth that his own, seemingly incomplete ability, might be more powerful than he could have ever imagined.

An original story from Jun Maeda, creator of Angel Beats and ClannadCharlotte explores the supernatural lives of these teenagers and the price they must pay for being special.

3. Intermediate can Learn Japanese with This Anime

Because this anime has the theme of ESP, terms related to ESP appear. However, surprisingly, those special terms do not appear frequently, so It’s happy with Japanese listening practice. There are many idioms in Japanese, but nothing so difficult. However, it is a little tricky for listening practice because everyday terms and technical terms are mixed. Sister Kurobane needs a bit of caution, but don’t care more than necessary. Tomori’s way of speaking is a smashed honorific style often used by modern youth. This way of speaking exists in reality, but it is not a good way of speaking. However, it is also one of her charms, so you should know that this broken honorific style exists in modern Japan.
