Hiiro no Kakera
Cover picture (http://i.imgur.com/SJ6tR.jpg)
Genres: Romance, Bishounen, Dating Sim - Visual Novel
* Based on Idea Factory's Hiiro no Kakera otome romance game
The protagonist is a teenage girl (Tamaki) who revisits a small village, she remembers from her childhood and gets caught up in her family's history and supernatural dangers surrounding it.
While walking along the hillsides waiting for the person who her grandmother sent to fetch Tamaki to the village, Tamaki comes across a small, white round object with sticks for limbs and talks. It runs off soon after, with Tamaki chasing after it. Soon Tamaki finds herself in a place where ‘it doesn’t feel like the world I came from’. She gets attacked by three slime creatures, and a male comes charging in to save her - by clamping his hands around her body and mouth and telling her to be quiet.

Takuma... I like him the most ^^
On the other hand Tamaki really is kinda clumsy & confused.
A typical damsel in distress with the power to be the hero.
Osaki fox was sooooo kawaii ^^
Guess there was no way to avoid the school life part...
Atori is interesting too, with his short temper ^^
Komura is the silent, calm type though.
So those three are her bodyguards, really nice (#^-^#)

Kasuga's first days in a new school.
Osaki fox is totally kawaii ^^
Onizaki is just way too cool around her for his own good.
Fiona sensei looks kinda suspicious...
Kasuga sure attracts drowned gods like a magnet.
They should've picked someone else for Onizaki's voice, he sounds way too old.
04-15-2012, 03:08 PM
Sinji... the fifth guardian appears.
He does have an interesting power tough.
The four intruders looked really interesting and kinda scary too.
04-22-2012, 03:34 PM
It was nice watching them all hang out together.
The traditional style is really nice.
The continuous issues with the seal have finally given us an enemy & those guys mean business.
The fight part was really nice to watch.
So Monado's group started collecting the items.
Guess things are going to get very interesting from now on.
04-30-2012, 12:36 PM
So the princess needs to awaken her powers to fight against the enemy.
She sure was trying hard to do so.
Tamaki's interesting encounter looked promising for future interactions.
That blond girl sure is cold-blooded when she's spiting threats.
05-06-2012, 02:15 PM
Tamaki is doing her best training.
The conflict with Monado was bad for Tamaki's guards.
That girl sure showed off some serious power.
I'm still amazed by the fact they are enemies, she conducts herself as a lady.
05-13-2012, 02:28 PM
Tamaki is being bothered by the residue feelings of worry and guilt.
Ryou, the mystery Tamaki's guy ^^
At least, maybe that'll take her mind of other things.
The guys on the other hand are blaming themselves for being so powerless... sigh.
They are all on a serious guilt trip which only brought disturbance in their harmony.
Ashiya's appearance was interesting, wonder what he wants..
05-20-2012, 02:10 PM
Seems like pretty much everyone dropped this anime.
Guess making anime after a game is not a very smart thing.
Tamaki sure has it tough lately.
The visit from that suspicious guy just put more pressure on everyone.
Seems like the answer and help they're looking for might be in those old books.
Morale is also one of the problems.
Tamaki will have to cheer the hell up of her guardians.
05-27-2012, 12:23 PM
There was some serious trouble brewing.
Tamaki was persistent in her studying, but not with much luck.
Drei's attack was a surprise, but not that unexpected.
So Fiona-sensei showed her true colors too.
06-03-2012, 12:11 PM
A private meeting on the rooftop was interesting.
Well, it was about time they make a plan for their next move.
Looks like they'll be on the defensive more than ever.
It's nice they still have fun despite the gloomy events from before.
Bath time was my official fav part of the episode ^^
06-10-2012, 12:16 PM
Looks like Tamaki finally started seeing she's surrounded by boys.
It's like she's got her own little harem of beautiful guys.
Even her school friends started to notice that much.
They're still searching through those old books for clues *sigh*
06-17-2012, 01:02 PM
The red eyed Ryo looks like a very interesting guy.
Wonder why he's been cornering Tamaki lately.
Takuma, on the other hand, has nice timing to rescue her.
Looks like that little encounter in the woods made them very serious about who and what they are actually protecting.
Nice action for a change.
Monado sure dealt with Tamaki's guardians pretty easily.
The difference in their power is really big and this way they don't stand a chance..
This is really starting to annoy me.
These guys are pathetic. Every time they lose the fight.
It's nice watching them fight, but I'd be nicer watching them win for a change.
Interesting how Takuma awakened before Tamaki.
So far, this was the best episode of them all.
I think visual novel is probably way better than this anime..
09-30-2012, 03:33 PM
Life goes on for Tamaki and her guys.
Some flashbacks from the previous season..
Well, it was practically all about the flashbacks.
This episode was just a recap.
Wonder what's gonna be happening this season..
Probably something involving Aria Monado & her fighters.
10-07-2012, 03:29 PM
Ohmi busted Shinji.
Never thought that kid could be the traitor.
Ohmi switching sides... that was a surprise.
The only question is, is he faking it or is it for real?
Things are certainly getting interesting.
10-21-2012, 02:58 PM
Tamaki just worries too much about her guardians..
The appearance of the drowned gods was kinda surprising.
Takuma struggling with his inner demon.
He is having serious trouble suppressing it.
10-28-2012, 03:04 PM
Those guardians really are helpless against Logos.
It's actually pathetic watching them lose every time.
Tamaki ended up under house arrest because of the whole situation.
Things seems to be slowly falling apart around her.
11-04-2012, 02:35 PM
Lots of talking and not enough action.
That may work in a visual novel, but in an anime it's just bad.
Discord between the guardians seems to be rising though.
I guess all the tension started when one of them switched sides.
Tamaki having visions... well, at least that's progress.
Takuma getting fired was pretty interesting.
11-12-2012, 12:07 PM
At least Tamaki didn't give up on Takuma.
That's actually really nice of her, but also expected.
After trying for the Onimimaru she found out the terrible truth.
Tamaki's guardians didn't like the idea of Tamaki as sacrifice one bit.
Looks like Tamaki and Takuma are bound by destiny.
11-18-2012, 04:26 PM
Takuma desperately trying to save Tamaki.
Those two really are meant for each other.
Seems like everyone was against Takuma.
At least things are getting very interesting now.
It's good Takuma took the Onikirimaru.
Good, but also bad if he keeps using it's power.
Kutani Ryo's sudden appearance was a surprise.
11-25-2012, 04:14 PM
Takara & Ryo seem to have the same employer.
The truth is slowly coming out.
At least those two are there to help.
Tamaki & Takuma alone in school... that didn't last long.
It's nice that her Guardians figured out Tamaki's story was true.
12-02-2012, 02:49 PM
Tamaki and Takuma vs the bearded guy.
Looks like it was a trigger for Onikirimaru to awaken.
I kinda felt sorry for Takuma... until the kiss.
Well, I guess she was the only one who could seal the power.
When her grandma got involved again, things went downhill once more.
12-09-2012, 02:42 PM
Tamaki & Takuma romantic autumn meething was really nice.
Those two are such ana nice couple.
It's a shame they never got to have a normal high school romance.
The whole thing was just sad...
It was nice of Mitsuru to tell the truth about the whole deception from Baba-sama.
This sure was an interesting episode with some surprising twists.
12-16-2012, 03:19 PM
Baba-sama dead. Things got easier and more complicated at the same time.
Tamaki really stepped up to her princess role.
The guys finally and truly became her guardians.
Eins turned into a true monster..
The guardians true unsealed forms were half monstrous as well.
At least they were fighting to save the world.
Then Logos stepped in and brought more bang to the fighting.
12-23-2012, 03:51 PM
Looks like Drei used all of them to gain power for himself.
Lots of dialogue this time as well.
At least they explained a whole bunch of stuff.
The fights scenes were really nice to watch.
Tamaki resolved the Onikirimaru thing once and for all.
Now everyone can live their lives normally.
Nice final episode.
