Nagasarete Airantou- Cast Away Airan Island

Type: Runaway stumbles upon anime paradise

Synopsis: Punk kid named Ikuto is a sore loser how runs away from home after failing to beat up his dad. He charts a boat for a three hour tour, fails at that too, and lands on a mysterious island exclusively populated with women. A little more Guilligans Island than Lost, hijinks occur after every woman tries to win over the two time loser Ikuto.

Pros: It pretty neat. Its got this old school anime pacing to it, each gag being more slapstick than anything else. You can pretty much watch any episode individually without getting lost by complicated in-world logic and rules. In fact, if it wasn’t for the occasional fan service, I would say this way aimed at a much younger audience (Its got taking animals for pete’s sake).

Cons: As stated above, its got an old school anime feel to it. That mean a wishy-washy plot and kinda pointless episodes. And again, except for the occasional fan service, the show seems to be targeted to the younger crowd. Very light in tone. Not exactly childish, but borders on it (Its got talking animals for pete’s sake).

Watch it?: Its funny enough to keep you entertained, but you will skip an episode at least once (3/5)

MVP: Rin

Sometimes a Lady wants to be treated like a Lady

Best Episode: Ep. 2 “Being Chased After, Bridegroom” (Runaway Groom)
