“Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi”, or translated as “Ookami-san and Seven Companions”. Yeah, that’s a long title, and to make things simple, I’ll just call it “Ookami-san”.
The story is about a club called “Otogi Bank”, which its members helps other students to solve their problem. But the students have to return the favour in future by assisting the members on a different matter.
This show is actually a parody of many famous fairy tales, for example, in the first episode, involved Little Red Riding Hood and Cinderella. Not to forget the title is a pun of “Snow White and Seven Dwarfs”.
Our female lead, Ookami Ryouko, and her Neko-Neko Knuckles. I swear that is the most awesome and cutesome knuckles I’ve ever seen.
Her childhood friend, Akai Ringo.
PS* Ryouko and Ringo’s names are actually a play on words relating to “Little Red Riding Hood”. Ookami means wolf while Akai means Red.
The club president, Kiriki Liszt. and his cousin, Kiriki Alice.
Tsurugaya Otsuu, club maid… lol?
Majolika le Fay, Mad Scientist?? She dress more like a witch…
Anyway, her role is much like the club’s logistic director.
and the mysterious duo, Urashima Tarou and Ryuugu Otohime.
and lastly our male lead, Morino Ryoushi. Well, a shy boy who can’t stand other people watching him..
Good thing that he confessed to Ookami in the first episode, in that way.
I enjoyed the first episode, the story has it’s own originality such as the use of story narrator. The parody on those famous fairy tales is pure LOL, because we all heard of those stories before, and now they mish-mash it into something new, refreshing… and ah it brings back memories too..
but somehow, I’m a kind of audience that watches anime in a sensible way. I mean I can’t really accept how this Otogi Bank club works.. They risks themselves for others in return of other’s help? hmmm…
Anyway, I just watched the first episode of this series… I can say that this series might be a good anime.. but still far for being a masterpiece. We shall see.
