Midori no Hibi

There isn't a single person in Sakuradamon High who hasn't heard the legends about Seiji "The Mad Dog" Sawamura's demonically powerful right hand. His reputation makes it fairly difficult for him to approach girls, and after being rejected 20 times straight, he half-jokingly vows to finish high school with his right hand for a girlfriend. Much to his surprise, after waking up the next morning, Seiji discovers that his demon right hand has mysteriously turned into a miniature girl, Midori Kasugano, who reveals that she has had a crush on Seiji for the past three years. Because their situation is not ideal for either of them, Seiji attempts to return Midori to normal. But after causing a big misunderstanding at the Kasugano household, the pair decide to keep their predicament between them until a solution is found. Thus begins an odd relationship, and what could be the only chance for Midori to finally be with the one she loves. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

My friend recommended this to me years back, telling me it's about a guy who's hand turns into a girl. To me, this idea sounds like an excuse for an anime packed full of fanservice and vulgar jokes, many of them probably involving the main character forgetting about his hand being a girl and using it for activities such as, er... well, I'll leave that to your imagination. ...and this is why I've never really felt a great urgency to try "Midori no Hibi".But now that I have finally gotten around to watching this, I have to admit it's not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Yes it did contain some of the distastefulness that I was expecting, but the dirty jokes didn't get out of hand (\*rim shot\*) and go as far as I'd feared. Instead, "Midori no Hibi" turned out to be something that's probably best described as a fun, entertaining anime that's not to be taken too seriously."Midori no Hibi" is essentially a romantic comedy, and the comedy is the main strength of it. A lot of it is pretty slap stick, but I couldn't help laughing out loud at times because some parts are just so funneh. The romance side has some nice touches too. One of its main strengths is the interaction and developing relationship between the two main characters Seiji and Midori, which is good since that's one of the focal points of the show. The story has originality, and did not turn out as predictable as I expected, but with such a bizarre set up, inevitably there are a lot of character "fudging" going on to make it work, like Midori's reaction after she first finds out what had happened to her. To be frank, I find it almost disturbing that she seems to be able to just accept the strange situation so readily and then adapt to it so quickly without missing the things in her old life that you'd expect to be important to her - she seems to care very little about her family, for example. The characters are generally likeable and it's easy to sympathise with their problems, but some of the character development feels hurried - there seem to be no transitional stage involved as Midori opens up from being an introvert, and the way one of the characters Ayase changed her attitude towards Seiji also seems a bit sudden.Even though "Midori no Hibi" does not hold up to close scrutiny, it passes easily for a casual watch due to its entertainment values. There are some Ecchi jokes that the series could have done without, but as I said there isn't as much as I thought there would be. Presentation wise, "Midori no Hibi" is fairly unremarkable to look at, but it does have a reasonably good sound track with some nice BGM's and a pretty good ending theme. The show was popular around the time of its release, but now the ratings seems to have fallen. Probably deserved - it's a mildly enjoyable, but ultimately forgettable watch.
