Cliched and cheesy as hell but still an enjoyable show. One of the few shoujo shows I've liked. That being said, the song grandma sang? Kicked the crap out of Tender Rain. THAT song sounded like a song that was passed down through the generations. Tender Rain, while still good, was a damned modern day pop song. I just never could buy it as something passed down to Nike. What granny sang? That I could buy as being something passed down, especially since it was sang in the old language of their people.

7/10 for me. Started strong but dragged a bit towards the end.

It was my understanding the song Nike sings is tailored to fit the place and person she's singing for but in the grandmother's case the song is a traditional song from their home region. However, I believe Nike's Sun Kingdom song would have been better to our ears if they'd left out the English but the song is targeted to a Japanese audience and using an English phrase in a song is considered "cool".

Not gonna lie. I never felt that The World is Still Beautiful was cheesy or cliched. But, then again, I also liked "The Tender Rain," so that may just say something about me as a person, and not actually anything about the show itself.

I did think the last arc was the best.


Also, don't ask my why I write about particular shows at the end of the season. I write when I feel like I have something to say.

Episode 12 - Finale


I know this image has been used a few times, but it's just so damn nice, I have to use it!

I don't feel like writing big a review on this since it's late, so I'll keep this short: I really liked this series. Even though it was pretty cliche, it was still very nice and enjoyable. Livi and Nike's relationship is very touching and sweet and the comedy worked great with the story. I liked all the characters and Nike was a fantastic lead.

Overall I would give this an 8/10. Best romance show of the season that's for sure.

I read the your review and I really liked it. WiSB was definitely one of my favorite shows of the season and your review gives it a lot of justice.
