As a gamer, exploring new world is never a new thing to me yet it is one of the best thing that I always encounter when playing games, especially MMORPGs. Right after I aboard a new game, curiosity stays by my side and eventually becomes my best friend. Being newbie and obviously knowing nothing from my surrounding gives me so much hype on every new MMORPG that I play. Little by little while I have to learn new things from my new game world, the hype would steadily move away proportionally as I cope and be a veteran on a new game.
The plot of Shomin Sample is somehow similar to my experience. And I think it doesn't only applies to me, to gamers, but it also applies to travel enthusiasts as well. These enthusiasts learn new things, culture from different countries as if they are new born babies crying out loud for the outside reality.
Last year, the franchise Shomin Sample stepped into a new world - onto the anime world. With 12 successful episodes, I don't think that the adaptation would not have a second season since I am hoping more romance from Kimito and Reiko. I know some would love to see Aika and Kimito together, but bash me not. I'm also a fan for them.
I do hope that the original writer would not abandon this work as a lot of fans are waiting for his goofy yet so romantic content. A season 2 is what I ask from him.
