Weekend preview: Ichigo Mashimaro

Found recently: a 3-minute-plus preview of Ichigo Mashimaro (strawberry marshmallow).

What's going on in the preview? There's a group of super-adorable little lasses. There's one slightly older onee-chan (big sister) who smokes (bad, bad influence!). There's a space station. There's trouble. There's an unexpected solution to the trouble, devised by onee-chan. And, of course, onee-chan's solution brings more trouble for them than before.

Ichigo Mashimaro is another 'group of girls' kind of show which reminds me of Azumanga Daioh! (one of my all-time favourites) and Galaxy Angel, to quote a few. The setting is similar: a circle of closely-knitted friends where everyone in it has a unique personality and role. Ichigo Mashimaro is another attempt at the genre, and hopefully it will contain some originalities to set it apart from the rest of the crop.

Ichigo Mashimaro's première is schduled somewhere in middle of July over the channel TBS. Interested parties can catch the preview at this link.
