Plot Summary


Kimihara Himeno, also known as "Hime," goes about her life, love, and studies just like any ordinary high school girl. The only difference is that she's a centaur. She enjoys her school life along with classmates of many unique shapes, including Nozomi the draconid, Kyouko the goatfolk, an angelfolk class representative, and Sassas-chan the Antarctican. Hime's younger cousin Shino-chan, her friend Maki-chan, and the class representative's four younger sisters also join the cast in this very cute slice-of-life story about girls who are human, yet aren't!

First episode is up: http://www.crunchyroll.com/a-centaurs-life/episode-1-when-all-is-said-and-done-everyone-loves-kisses-did-you-know-that-a-marathon-is-a-microcosm-of-life-742023

Episode 1

Hime sure has problems being a centaur. There's the stage play where she's too heavy for the wooden stage to handle, but she made the best out of a bad situation in rescuing Nozomi when the stage was about to collapse and then getting a kiss. And then there's the marathon and while Hime would make a great track and field athlete, unfortunately turns are a problem. Kyoko sure is a wimp there, but it's a good thing she has great friends.

That was better than what I was expecting. While it is by Haoliners, this is an adaptation of something of Japanese origin which makes a big difference. Anyway, this figures to be a nice way to kick back and enjoy.

Episode 1

For a Haoliners Animation show, I didn't think the animation was bad at all. Nothing groundbreaking but certainly works for this series.

They didn't waste time introducing the centaur girls and others. Between the characters, Nozomi is the most intimidating the scariest so far. It's a pretty fun show with a normal school life setting except all the characters aren't human. It takes risks to adapt a show like this but I think it worked out well so far. Himeno is also really cute imo for a centaur.

Good start so far.

Wasn't sure exactly what to expect but it's pretty solid so far. Not sure how deep they'll get into things that go deeper than a normal cute girls show but it certainly succeeds at that bit at least. The deeper issues are very clearly shown and stated but feel like they may end up more window dressing than something that directly impacts the characters and storyline. Either way, a very solid first episode.

And it's nice to see the Nyanko cats working again after the end of Nyanko Days.

Episode 1

The first story was a little play that the class played for a festival and it was quite fun to watch but a bit weird for a first impression to the show for me.
The second half of the episode was a bit of a history lesson about the different types of races in the world, found it quite funny that the teacher said it was basically impossible to find a Human without some special feature to them (aka, what we would class as a normal Human today). Himeno seems to have a big advantage in running as she can run pretty fast compared to the other races but if she wanted to get serious about it she would just be put against people of the same race and she isn't really anything special in that regard.

Was quite annoyed to see EMON working on this but, to my surprise, it was better than I thought but still not anything, wow. The two episode break-down is very Chinese animation-like, doing the same with Enmusubi no Youko-chan this season. Overall, not a bad first episode, but I want a bit more of a deeper break down of the different traits of the races next episode.

I did not notice that Haoliners, of all studios, had been the one to pick up this property. Unfortunate, but they might be improving. ... And CR does tend to pick up Haoliners titles.

From what I've been able to see, MAGES. seems to have taken the production lead on this title rather than being done purely in house at Haoliners. I was very wary after seeing Haoliners working on this as well but maybe they're not so bad when someone with experience is cracking the whip.

This was a solid first episode. I enjoyed the stage play start as it gave a chance for the viewer to get a feel for the main characters before the pretty well-done info dump of the second half. I didn't know much about this series going in and based on the character designs was expecting more of a fantasy feel (angels, demons, etc) and instead the show seems to have grounded itself more in science with an alternate evolution angle. The series has a Monster Musume vibe going on with the stories of how the various races treated each other in the past. I'm hoping they go into that a bit more but can balance it out with the sort of lighter touch Interviews managed.

really need to catch up in the manga. This was fun episode and looking forward to the show! No this isn't just your ordinary SoL, we get dialog about their world and how things are and the way things work (manga did that a lot!) also the manga can get really weird. (and I hope I wont be spoiling things here... but just to be safe)



I don't know if the show will cover any of that stuff or what not but yeah the manga is good and hopeful the show will be good too...

hime x nozomi!!!

Oh, it's all cannon. There is A LOT going on in that world that isn't quite right. Those things in your spoiler tag actually happened.

I'm on the fence about this one. The alternate evolution lecture was an interesting idea, and I certainly enjoyed the humor around the teacher's speculation that bipedal humanoids wouldn't discriminate against each other.

I'm kind of concerned where the political elements might be going, since its centered on a delicate subject.
