Wallflower Collection 1
Episodes 1 - 13

The Wallflower series is created by Tomoko Hayakawa who incorporates all the classic anime stereotypes in this male orientated series about a group of four teenagers (Ranmaru Morii, Kyouhei Takano, Takenaga Oda and Yukinojoh (Yuki) Tohyama) living in a luxurious mansion.

Almost Hentai in certain aspects, each of these teenagers are given the task of turning the land lady’s niece Sunako into a woman in exchange for free accommodation. As you can see, it’s definitely every male’s dream, although things don’t always go as planned.

Sunako is quite the agoraphobic and refuses to leave her room and refers to others as Light People who dwell in the sunlight. Sunako could almost be considered a “vampire” with her love of horror movies and refusal to be part of society is quite an interesting character.

There is a classic scene in the series where Sunako first meets Kyohei, the most attractive teenager out of the lot and has a nasty accident where she vomits on him as she is unable to comprehend his good looks as she believes she is ugly.

In the first collection, all the characters are given a chance to shine, however Sunako is the most interesting character and as each episode progresses, so does her character which is great.

The animation is presented in 16:9 widescreen with vibrant colours and sharp images, however the star of the series is the impressive artwork that almost makes the characters look Elven in appearance.

At the end of the day, the Wallflower Collection 1 may not be the most original anime series to date, however does offer some interesting stories that fans of this genre will enjoy, although it could have been a tad more exciting.
