Amagami SS is a romance type of anime that tells a story surrounding Junichi Tachibana, our main protagonist and six heroines whom each of them will have their own screenings. Being stood up on his last Christmas Eve, Junichi is having a hard time to forget about it and let it go, however, he is inspired to make everything different this year Christmas Eve.
First couple minutes in the first episode, I couldn’t help it but started thinking about Kimikiss Pure Rouge. Not only in term of story plot but also the characters’ design and guess what, after a quick trip to Anime News Network, the character designer is the same person as the one in Kimikiss Pure Rouge. My hunch was right after all ^^. As with Kimikiss Pure Rouge, Amagami SS is also a visual novel adaptation
In the first episode, the main heroine is Haruka Morishima so it’s her story arc. Her character gives similar vibes as Mao-neechan in Kimikiss Pure Rouge.
I think I would enjoy this anime as I enjoyed watching Kimikiss Pure Rouge and high school romance is always a great watch. The first episode ends in such a way that makes me wanting more so it’s a good sign that I will continue watching it.
On the other hand, this may just be another high school romance type of anime and the story plot is usually shallow. In addition, since it’s only 13 episodes, I am little concerned that each heroine won’t get enough screenings (two episodes per heroine), thus, there will be minimal character development and the audience won’t get to know each heroine better.
