Kanamemo : Yuri and Loli

Kanamemo this Summer 2008 is a loli show filled with yuri. Initially when I first started watching Kanamemo it was solely because of her. I didn’t even know it contains yuri-action!! Well, the yuri action is only between 2 girl characters as far as Episode 2 currently. I don’t know whether there will be any more yuri action between the girls.. I highly doubt so XD. *fingers crossed*

So a short introduction of the girls from Kanamemo. I even researched on the seiyuu cast !!^_^V BANZAI.

First up,

Nakamachi Kana

Kana is a 13-year old who forced herself to leave home after her grandma passed away – as she believed that the guys who came to take her grandmother’s possessions will take her away too. LOL. While looking for a place to stay, she ends up at an newspaper distribution office. She saw some YURI action in front of the office and walked away, thinking of looking at other places first. At the end, she decides to stay and start working as a newspaper carrier girl, since it seems like it’s the only place that’s willing to take her in – despite the fact that someone might “rape” her since a certain someone(HARUKA) is a pedo who wants loli girls.

Kanamemo : Yuri and Loli

Seiyuu: Aki Toyosaki
Past Seiyuu Roles
Yui Hirasawa in K-ON!
Koyoi Bessho in Hatsukoi Limited
Suu in Shugo Chara!

Saki Amano

Everyone calls her Chief.. when she’s still in grade school! Wow. She is the most serious character among the girls. Even hurrying the rest to turn in early because they have to go on their newspaper routes the next day. So far I never actually seen her going to school.. yet? All she does whole day is to supervise the girls, doing office administrative work XD.

She’s also a loli, so getting “played-around” by Haruka is a fact. Don’t underestimate her twintails. They’re used to defend her when Haruka starts to harass her! XD

Kanamemo : Yuri and Loli

Seiyuu: Kaoru Mizuhara
Past Seiyuu Roles
Yomi Isahara in Ga-Rei:Zero
Misao Kusakabe in Lucky Star

Haruka Nishida

Ah the Haruka I have been talking for the past 2 characters! Haruka is the oldest, but she isn’t the most mature one. She likes to harass Saki and Kana (because they’re both loli) and Haruka is a pedobear :(. She is often drunk. She attends college, studying bio-fermentation, and creates numerous different beverages from biologic substances (the resulting concoction almost always being alcoholic), which she tests on her friends. She even offered a drink to Kana ^^”

It saddens me that my Hocchan is voicing her(such a crazy woman >_>), but I do go into fangirl mode whenever I see Haruka/hear Hocchan’s voice XD. I actually fangirl-ed while doing this section that I swallowed a seed (I’m eating fruits -_-)

Kanamemo : Yuri and Loli

Seiyuu: Yui Horie (HOCCHAN FTW YAHHO)
Past Seiyuu Roles
Ayu Tsukimiya in Kanon
Naru Narusegawa in Love Hina
Minori Kushieda in Toradora!

Hinata Azuma

Stingy and petty Hinata. She has keeps failing the entrance exams to college. She is known as a “ronin” in the anime series. Also she loves to spend her money on gambling and stuff. Wow XD

She didn’t really leave any impression on me compared to the rest but hopefully the remaining episodes will.

Kanamemo : Yuri and Loli

Seiyuu: Eri Kitamura
Past Seiyuu Roles
Rin Kokonoe in Kodomo no Jikan
Ami Kawashima in Toradora!
Saya Otonashi in Blood+

Yume Kitaoka

Yume is always bright and lively, but sometimes clumsy. She is an apprentice at a local patisserie, hence her fondness of everything sweet. (She tends to sweeten every meal she cooks with heaps of SUGAR). Even putting curry with 2 packets of sugar.. -_-

She and Yuuki did some good yuri kissing in the first episode which left my jaws hanging LOL.

Kanamemo : Yuri and Loli

Seiyuu: Ryou Hirohashi
Past Seiyuu Roles
Tamaki Kawazoe in Bamboo Blade
Kyou Fujibayashi in Clannad

Yuuki Minami

Yuuki appears to be a cool and calm beauty but whenever she doesn’t have her dear Yume, she will be in DESPAIR. Even the Chief (Saki) can’t do anything about it. Haha.

Wow I didn’t know she’s voiced by Aya Endo, the one who did Miyuki in Lucky Star~!

Kanamemo : Yuri and Loli

Seiyuu: Aya Endo
Past Seiyuu Roles
Miyuki Takara in Lucky Star
Sheryl Nome in Macross Frontier

Mika Kujiin

Mika is a newspaper delivery girl at another center. She made her appearance in Episode 2! She was seeking shelter from the rain when she met Kana. Kana was doing her first delivery route! After the rain stopped, she realised she was lost and allowed Kana to “escort” her to her next delivery place (as a form of accepting Kana’s apology.. Lolwut?) That was WIN!

Kanamemo : Yuri and Loli

Seiyuu: Rie Kugimiya
Past Seiyuu Roles
Shana in Shakugan no Shana
Louise in Zero no Tsukaima
Taiga Aisaka in Toradora!

Basically that sums up the cast for Kanamemo. Good casting, considering Kugi-chan(Rie Kugimiya), Hocchan(Yui Horie) and Aki Toyosaki (Remember Yui in K-ON!?) are in this anime series.

Well here are some shots.

And Haruka harassing the LOLIS


And a random shot of them.. excluding Chief Saki because she’s the most serious (I bet she’s working or something while they were partying away haha)

Kanamemo : Yuri and Loli

And why should you watch this anime? Because Hocchan is singing the ED OMGOMGOMG. YAHHO! The song below is ripped from her radio show. Please support my Hocchan by buying her single which will be out next month, August on the 26th!

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Here is the anime version of Yahho, no PV yet because her single isn’t out yet. lolx.

And because the ED is posted, I have to be fair to post the OP up too =P. Song is sung by Aki Toyosaki, Kaoru Mizuhara and Rie Kugimiya!

Don’t say that I am a pedo for watching this anime.. I do not want lolicons like Haruka XD. Actually I would like to fangirl/love the loli if my Hocchan is actually voicing one of them(Saki or Kana). But sadly she isn’t =(. The other anime she is currently voicing is a scary evil lolicon in Umineko no Naku Koro ni which Bluesnow described as “strangled cat” :(.

To conclude, Kanamemo is worth picking up with the comedy bits in it ^^.

    HAHAHAHAHAHA, I already downloaded the first 2 ep. yesterday. Can’t wait to give it go. I have a thing for Yuri and LOLI so even though I want to drop it, it’s not likely I will. xD

    Besides, knowing Aki Toyosaki who did the voice of Yui from K-ON! is enough for me to not drop it.
    ………and HOCCHAN off course. Let’s not forget about her. xD

    Whilst I did like the fact that Kanamemo was fine with openly showing a lesbian relationship, I really didn’t like the show much as a whole. Also, the pedophile annoyed the living shits out of me -_-
