Ikoku Meiro no Croisée

Ok, truth be told, I thought this anime would bite the big one when I first read about it. But it turned out pretty good afterall. It looks absolutely great and the storyline is pretty good too.

I do have to say.. Lately there have been a lot of anime’s where the (main) characters are Loli’s. Now, I don’t really ‘mind’ it, but I do dislike those ‘Magical-girl’ types of Loli’s.

But nevertheless, the anime is pretty good. They drew Yuna perfectly.

Plot Summary:  The story takes place in the second half of the 19th century, as Japanese culture gains popularity in the West. A young Japanese girl, Yune, accompanies a French traveller, Oscar, on his journey back to France, and offers to help at the family’s ironwork shop in Paris. Oscar’s nephew and shop-owner Claude reluctantly accepts to take care of Yune, and we learn how those two, who have so little in common, get to understand each other and live together in the Paris of the 1800s.

  1. Loved this! The heroine was absolutely adorable!
