Better late than never right? So oddly enough, Hyakko got new opening and ending sequences this week (episode nine), after only having a video collage of episode one clips for the opening up until now. The new ending sequence on the other hand is still a picture collage, but features newer and better artwork. Retaining the same opening song “Suppin Rock” 「スッピンロック」 by Ogawa Mana (小川 真奈) and ending song “Namida Namida Namida” 「涙 NAMIDA ナミダ」 by Hirano Aya (平野 綾), these new sequences are welcomed additions, but I find it really unusual to introduce them now when three-quarters of the series is already over. In any case, Hyakko features a wide-range of quirky and interesting characters, so if you haven’t checked it out and are looking for a light-hearted slice-of-life comedy this season, it’s a pretty good fit. Torako’s an absolute riot.
…felt the urge to say something about adding new OP/ED sequences this late in a series.
