Review – Story writing
The source material of the anime “AIR” was a visual novel released back in 2000, developed by key Studio. The original genre for this visual novel was eroge (erotic game) and visual novel. Though the visual novel had an eroge genre mentioned, the anime does not have any erotic scenes in it, which was mentioned in the visual novel.
As it’s a slice of life anime, it’s just like any other slice of life anime. The first episode of Air is just like the other, which just introduced the character which revolves around the protagonist. But as the story moves further than episode 1, we can appreciate the amazing story writing/telling.
From the last point, we know that “air” anime is adapted from a visual novel; the visual novel is heavily focused on dialogues of the characters and some information about the characters and the story; the girl characters almost overshadow the protagonist as the characters have some a beautifully presented back and current story, the characters are all girls in “air.” Character development for the protagonist is quite decent, but the development of other characters is done flawlessly.
