Anime In Your Face
So I just finished Paradise Kiss (the anime). I really enjoyed it. I felt like it was the perfect length (only 12 episodes) and I was pretty engaged the whole time. This is the premise:|
Yukari is a typical high school student on the fast track to attending a university, but her boring life leaves much to be desired; that is, until a motley crew of fashion design students ask her to model their new clothing line: Paradise Kiss! Now, Yukari must choose if she will reject the life her mother has laid out for her, and start making choices on her own for the first time. While taking her first steps into adulthood, Yukari also begins to realize that with freedom comes responsibility; a life in the fashion industry isn't an easy one, especially for someone unsure of her own intentions.
So I don't really care about the fashion industry but the show wasn't really about that, that just happens to be what the main character gets involved with. The show is really about her figuring out what she wants and growing up.
And sex. These characters really like to have sex. All the time.
( My thoughts about the ending, cut for spoilers obviouslyCollapse )
I would recommend Paradise Kiss, but not to everyone. If you think it sounds interesting, it's only 12 episodes so go for it. I personally really enjoyed it but wouldn't blame someone for just not being interested/engaged at all.
