About GLASSLIP DVD
This GLASSLIP collection contains episodes 1-13.
Toko Fukami thought she had settled on what she wanted in life: to hang out with her four best friends in their small seaside town, and to eventually become a professional glassblower working in her family's glassworks. But now two things have happened that may change her destiny forever.
First, she's seeing things. When she looks into reflections in glass, sometimes she catches glimpses of things that haven't happened yet. And then a new boy, Kakeru, transfers into town, claiming that a voice from the future led him to her. Suddenly Toko is re-evaluating everything she thought she knew, from the proper care of her school's chickens to how she really feels about each of her friends.

Ratings & Reviews

A basic high school story with SF overtones which unfortunately work against the story. Basically, the dynamics within a group of 5 friends (2 boys 3 girls) is changed by a newcomer. He can hear future fragments and one of the girls can see the same but can they? That is never answered - though it looks more like they see the Worlds of If. By the same token the relationships never really develop and in the end the story goes nowhere. If you like High school relationship stories you might try this one, if not there is a lot out there that is better than this. I had high hopes that this might work but ended up very disappointed.

The main character Toko acts clueless a lot, but I think that adds to her charm. I love the country-like atmosphere, and the opening song is done by ChouCho who did the cool Girl und Panzer opening. I even enjoyed the way they reversed Toko and Kakeru in episode 12, making her the new girl in town. I wish the ending was different for Toko, but I still very much enjoyed it.
