Welcome to Rizelmine ren’ai style.
Final Approach starts with sudden infiltration of Ryo and Akane’s house by this… person in a jump suit. The person undresses and… a girl with a kimono? Then this girl named Shizuka started talking the classic cliche` of: “I’ll be your fiance`”! Chaos ensues.
Well, unlike Rizelmine which basically is just a secret government project of a robot wife for no apparent purpose, Final Approach made up a ‘purpose’ for the sudden forced marriage thing. The population seems to be dropping (in real life, it will NEVER happen in Japan), and so they need to enforce arranged marriages to ensure the longetivity of human civilization.
BUT WHO CARES ABOUT ALL THAT CRAP ANYWAY?
What matters in Final Approach? Yes, the bishoujos of course. Based on a Princess Soft bishoujo game, and part of the Princess Hour anime showing (W ~Wish~ is the other one) (oh, the two shows aren’t worth one hour BTW), Final Approach is a 15-min 13-episode format which basically tells the perils of suddenly having an annoying fiance`. So no mind-boggling plot for at least most of the episode run.
The thing that had me locked into this is the drawing. Possibly my favorite kind of bishoujo drawing has been featured in Final Approach. All of them are so darn cute they’d kill me of heart attack (just joking). And the chibi-style moments add a plus factor. Of course, the male lead look just like any other male lead of this genre, and moreover, acts just like any other male lead of this genre, so who cares about him. I get 5 cute girls anyway, so…
But the cutest? Ojo! (Emiho Mutsu)
