Minami-Ke, literally translated as “The Minami Family”

Synopsis: A slice of life comedy that focuses on the everyday life of the three Minami sisters: Haruka, Kana, and Chiaki. (from: Wikipedia)

Genre: Comedy, slice of life
Status: Anime – Completed (October to December 2007)
Manga – Ongoing (4 volumes as of 01/2008.)

This story gives a straightforward account of the three Minami sisters’ normal, everyday lives. Please have no expectations beyond that.” — This note is shown before each episode as sort of a “warning.” I love the honesty of it. xD

Thoughts / Review: I kinda liked the OP theme, “Kokoro no Tsubasa” performed by Rina Satō, Marina Inoue, and Minori Chihara (the three Minami sisters’ seiyus). It was nice and fun. I thought it fit quite well into the series. I liked the chibi version of the characters that pop out here and there… so cute! The ED is “Sono Koe ga Kiki Takute” performed by the seiyus as well.

As the end of 2007 nears, I figured it would be fitting to post something to look back on the anime scene and mention a few of the series that I found rather noteworthy to share. I prefer using the term “notables” than “best of” since I don’t think I’ve seen enough anime to actually say which is best.

Please note that this is quite a subjective list as this was solely based on my picks among the series I have seen that aired from January to December of this year that I feel are notable.

* List order is chronological based on the season when it started airing (from Winter 2006/2007 to Fall 2007)
