Movie Reviews

Suspend your beliefs!
Soo W. Choe | New York, USA | 02/07/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"If a girl replacing your right hand does not count as one of the most unique plot twists in anime history, I don't know what will. And to convey a plausible story around that premise would be a monumental task!

However, in Midori Days, this bizarre occurrence is never really explored, thereby keeping it in a high school love story setting; boy meets girl (in shocking fashion), boy and girl starts bonding, climatic period, & *ending*.

The two main characters: Seiji & Midori, are likeable characters set in a short series that explores their strange union, and make best of the situation. One might think scientists, aliens, or perhaps magic might come into play somewhere in the series. However, it does not, and the story always remain somewhere in high school territory.

About half of the series can be considered "filler" episodes that do not directly dwell with Seiji & Midori's growing relationship, but the situation and people around them.

Ironically, after having completed watching the entire series, I have come to the conclusion that if I were to suddenly find a girl replacing my right hand, apparently, there would be only a slight deviation from what I normally do daily!

Basically, do not take Midori Days seriously. Instead, suspend your beliefs!

Please note: There is nudity in this series, and while it is not overly emphasized, I would not recommend this show to children.
