Webmaster Review

72% Excellent

It is a work in which adolescent boys and girls portray the entertainment of youth in the theme of music with animation and background that is stable at a high level. You can enjoy the glare of youth called "Having various experiences, having various emotions, and challenging various things". It is not a flashy work, but it is an excellent work that describes the character's feelings and story very carefully.

2. Synopsis

At Shirahamazaka High School, a special recital is held every year in which music students are able to showcase their talents in front of professionals and other prestigious guests. A third year, Konatsu Miyamoto desperately wants to sing in her last high school recital, but because she screwed up the year before, the vice principal has barred her from participating.

That’s when Konatsu comes up with a new plan to get involved; instead of joining the official choir, she’ll form her own singing club with her friends! Unfortunately this proves to be harder than she imagined. Her friend Wakana Sakai, has given up on singing, for one, and Konatsu needs more than just two members. With only a month left until the recital, will Konatsu be able to find enough members for her club and actually be ready to sing at one of the most important events of the school year and graduate without regrets?

3. Character’s Way of Speaking

Sakai Wakana talks like a typical high school girl: “xxx でしょ”. He sometimes nags his father, but at school, he speaks in a simple and distant manner. He is a good character for listening to Japanese.

Miyamoto Konatsu says, “xxx なの” and “xxx だよ” in a typical high school girl tone. The way he talks is full of energy. They may shout in their delusions the foggy feelings in their minds. At that time, the tone of the voice becomes harsh.

Okita Sawa says, “xxx だね” and “xxx だよ” in a typical high school girl tone. What he said was like a person with common sense. They often complain about the coming summer rush and give advice. Therefore, he talks like a reliable sister even though he is the same age. This character is suitable for both listening and emulating Japanese.

Tanaka Taichi talks in a typical high school boy tone: “xxx な” “xxx ぜ”. Abbreviations often used by young people such as “Chari Street” and (Going to school by bicycle) are sometimes used. It would be nice if Japanese learners of his age could emulate his way of speaking.

Since Wien is a returnee, she sometimes makes archaic remarks like the lines in period dramas. I read books and study Japanese and Japanese culture, so I often misunderstand what I say and do. He often makes mistakes in Japanese, and sometimes asks Daichi and his friends’ questions about Japanese. When the tension rises, the lines are mixed with German.

Takahashi, who was in charge of the class, spoke in a masculine tone. Students are also called by their family names. The father of Waso speaks in a sloppy manner. The tone is that of a common middle-aged man. People in the town talk to me in a friendly way, so I can listen to what I often hear in Japanese residential and shopping districts.

 

4. Terms and Talking Contents

Because the school focuses on music, many music-related terms such as “合唱部” (がっしょうぶ, choir) “音楽科” (おんがくか, Musicology) and “声楽部” (せいがくぶ, vocal section) appear. Also, there are many young people’s words and abbreviations such as “チャリ通” (チャリつう, Chari Street), “おごり” (treat), and “ウザい” (RUSTLE), so it may be difficult to understand at first. For Japanese learners, Vienna is the most familiar place because Vienna often asks questions when there are words they don’t understand. It should be noted that the subtitle of each lesson is a parallel expression of “xxx たり” or “xxx たり”. From the point of view of learning Japanese, it is necessary to understand that the Japanese used in this play is intended for teenagers. Of course, even adult Japanese, if they are close friends, sometimes have a conversation using Japanese like in this movie.

 

 

5. Intermediate can Learn Japanese with This Anime

Because it is set in a music school, the terms of school and club activities and music are used. These are not many terms, so it’s easy to prepare them in the Difficult Term List. On the other hand, there are many idioms specific to the Japanese language such as “腹をくくる” (はらをくくる, to lose one’s temper ― lose one’s temper), “二束三文” (にそくさんもん, a trifle), and “雀の涙ほど” (すずめのなみだほど, As much as a sparrow’s tears), so it should be noted that the difficulty terms occurrence rate is rather high at 6.8 terms/episode. It’s also a great way to practice reading in Japanese, as text messages appear on the screen in Japanese.

The main characters don’t use simple honorific expressions such as “です” and “ます” at the end of words, but use correct honorific expressions that properly use respectful/humble/polite words. “xxx して頂く” (xxx していただく, Please do xxx), etc. This may seem difficult, but the honorific language is a very important element of communication in Japanese society, so please use it as a reference for learning Japanese. The Japanese language difficulty level is also equivalent to High School, so it is recommended for intermediate level Japanese learners.
