Waiting in the Summer
20 March 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As Kaito Kirishima tests his new film camera he sees a bright light before being knocked off his feet; a hand reaches out and helps him up. The next day he wakes up at home, unhurt; it was all a dream… or was it? The next day a new transfer student arrives; Ichika Takatsuki, she is in a higher class than Kaito but they immediately bond… so much so that he ends up inviting her to stay at his house when he learns she doesn't have a place of her own. She tells everybody that she is from another country and will be studying in Japan for a while; however we soon learn that she isn't from another country… she is from another planet! Fearing a visit from 'The Men in Black' she keeps this fact quiet and spends the summer making an amateur film with Kaito and his friends… about an alien girl! Over the course of the summer they develop feelings for each other but have difficulty telling the other how they feel… this is further complicated by other characters in the group also having feelings for each other. Eventually the truth comes out and things are looking good for Kaito and Ichika… just as we learn that people from her planet have sent out a 'rescue party' and intend to take her home whether she wishes to go or not.

This twelve part anime series manages to mix sci-fi and slice of life genres is a delightful way. The characters are introduced in a fine manner and if you've avoided spoilers the fact that Ichika really is an alien will come as quite a surprise… there is no clue on the DVD case; it makes it look like a standard slice of life series. The characters are likable and believable despite one of them being an alien. Their growing romantic attractions are portrayed in a sweet way; there is jealousy but little in the way of confrontation. There are laughs to be had throughout the series; most notably anything including Remon; a senior girl who seems to know exactly what is going on but only hints at the truth until the final episode. The animation is good and both character designs and backgrounds look great. Overall I'd certainly recommend this to fans of slice of life anime.

These comments are based on watching the series in Japanese with English subtitles.
