Deaimon | An anime I’ve been wanting to watch for awhile.

Truthfully speaking, Deaimon has been on my list for a long while, it’s been an anime I’ve always wanted to watch because there was something about it that has always appealed to me. Whether that was the feature art of the synopsis, there just was something about Deaimon that made me want to go “I want to watch this”.

Right off the bat, I personally enjoy the fact that they immediately hit you in the face with the opening song, “Sumire” by Maaya Sakamoto. I love the tone of thee opening song because to me, it gives me a cool, relaxed vibe and it’s something I did enjoy. Furthermore, at first glance the art style reminded me of the anime, Tsuki ga Kirei. I’m basing this on the fact that each character has this clear white outline that defines each person.

Anyway, moving on.

Similarly to Kumichou Musume to Sewagakari, I think that Deaimon is going to turn out being one of those wholesome anime which is great for me because I like it. Although, that being said, I am only two episodes in so a lot can happen from now until the end of the anime. But I assume, that Deaimon will be a more relaxed, again, I’m not sure if that will be the case, but I feel it so that’s worth something to me.

I’m looking forward to seeing who really Itsuka as a character is. She kind of reminds me of Taiga from Toradora, just the way the character is designed makes me think of her. Furthermore, I think they’re very similar in personality. What interests me more is Itsuka’s obsession with her father. Which makes sense, because she’s only ten and lost her only parent. She doesn’t know the true reason why her father had left her, but to her I would assume that she wants/wanted to stay connected with her parent.

Since Itsuka is on a ‘quest’ to find her father, I assume that she doesn’t know the reason as to why her father abandoned her. But, if she were to know the reason why, I think she would’ve stopped trying to look for him ages ago because from what was let on in the first two episodes. Itsuka’s father doesn’t seem to be fit to be one. How will she cope once she finds this truth?

I think that’s when Nagomu Irino will come into play, as sort of like the big brother that she never had, or doesn’t seem to want. I’ll be honest, I’m not entirely sold on the Nagomu character just yet because he seems to be a little wishywashy, a little too spontaneous for my liking. Maybe as time goes on, we’ll see something change within him because whether or not they like it or not.

Nagomu and Itsuka are going to be attached at the hip with one another, forcing them to co-exist. Let’s see how far that goes.
