Plot Summary


Himeno is a sweet, shy little centaur girl. In her world, everyone seems to be a supernatural creature, and all her classmates have some kind of horns, wings, tails, halos, or other visible supernatural body part. Despite their supernatural elements, Himeno and her best friends, Nozomi and Kyoko, have a fun and mostly normal daily school life!


Manga 'A Centaur's Life' is getting an anime adaptation.

I enjoyed the manga up to a point.

Reasoning in spoiler


That said a single cour anime adaptation would be very unlikely to get as far as that point so is likely to only be the enjoyable bits Hime is pretty adorable as well.

> Studio EMON responsible for such "masterpieces" like Cheating Craft, Bloodivores and Hitori no Shiita Outcast....
> Encourage Films a studio that can't even finish a major show without turning it into production disaster and almost killed Symphogear S1.
> Director who has done nothing notable and nothing of the pedigree of subtlety and complexity required for this work.
> Writer famous for stuff like Seikon no Qwaser, Endride and Chain Chronicle movies. Same writer whose series composition is usually a mess and who loves adding fanservice wherever she can.


Why oh why oh why oh why oh why. This absolutely brilliant manga deserved far BETTER than this. Its a thoughtful and interesting work exploring topics of social injustice, sexual identity and self discovery together pure mindfuck of plot twists, while at the same time satirizing Japan's own society and it's issues. This will be a mess and it deserves so much more :(

At best this will be an even worse case of Demi-chan in that the adaptation will water down the main themes, focus more on "cute girls doing cute stuff" angle and fail in executing the crucial themes. Except with this production staff it means it unlike Demi-chan will have a huge amount of tasteless pandering and focus on titillation instead of actual messages of the work

Which begs the question: How do Centaurs get into pants?

Well, there goes any chance of it being any good as Emon is pretty bad. At least they aren't adapting something from Chinese source materials this time around, but nevertheless I'm not expecting anything out of it.

One of the many things that the work answers since huge parts of the work is worldbuilding explaining how such a society works and how it came to be.

Chinese centric company adapting a work which is literally a social commentary piece on Japanese society is a recipe for disaster.
