「パパと呼ないで」 (Papa to Yobunaide)
“Don’t Call Me Papa!”
An anime that deals with strong family values and has not only Kitamura Eri and Ono Daisuke but Horie Yui as well?! Even if this show was absolute garbage (which it is not!), the voice acting talent alone would be enough to keep me interested. But if those names don’t ring a bell or you could care less about Seiyuus and just want a good story, Papakiki’s first episode delivered in both the family moments and fan-service departments — the former stemming from a conversation between Yuuta and his older sister and the latter from some impressive DD Cup size boobs.
In terms of first episodes, I was actually surprised with how much I enjoyed Papakiki. Starting with the art, something I don’t normally fret over, I loved how pretty everything looked. From the character designs to the quality of the backdrops, everything worked together and just looked right.
However, even if Papakiki had the best art in the world, it isn’t going to do any good if the story isn’t compelling enough to keep you watching — luckily Papakiki delivers on both. Honestly, I was drawn to this show the moment I saw the words “family-oriented” due to the fact that this genre tends to have a lot of genuinely heart touching moments. As petty as that may sound, I’m a sucker for an anime that can build up my emotions and toy with them however it pleases. With the promise of a good story focusing on one’s family, I’m excited that an important point about being a family was already made during this first episode. And while it may not have been a huge point, it’s a good start for something that could build into an amazingly immersive experience.
So where does that leave us for a first episode? We have college student Segawa Yuuta (Hatano Wataru) who’s trying to live it up as a college freshman but has everyone in the world competing for his attention. There’s his crush Oda Raika (Horie Yui) who has huge breasts but a strange personality, super player Nimura Kouichi (Ono Daisuke) who’s trying to get it on with every girl possible, and Sako Shuntarou (Majima Junji) the masochist who probably has a lot more dirty fetishes waiting to be revealed. At the same time, there are his three cute nieces: Sora (Uesaka Sumire), Miu (Kitamura Eri), and Hina (Igarashi Hiromi). And even though we didn’t get to see much out of Sora and Miu except for their pantsu, I couldn’t get enough of Hina. She’s just too cute.
At this point, I’m impatiently waiting for the all important announcement about something happening to our little trio’s parents. As you should already know, they will eventually move in with Yuuta and that’s probably when the show will kick it into high gear. The thing is, if you’re like me, you’re already loving this show. Can you imagine what’ll happen if it just gets even better?!
