Kashimashi: Girl Meets Girl Episode 3


Hazumu Osaragi confesses his love to Yasuna Kamiizumi, but is turned down by her because she is interested only in girls. Heartbroken, he climbs Mt. Kashima, which overlooks the city in which the story takes place, and is inadvertently killed due to an alien spacecraft crash-landing on him. In order to rectify the situation, the alien resurrects Hazumu, but in the process his physical appearance is changed to that of an atomically correct female.




Kashimashi: Girl meets Girl Episode 3



Hazumu goes through medical tests at the hospital, but the doctors do not find anything wrong with her physically. Hazumu attempts to adjust to living life as a girl, and goes along with wearing a female school uniform obtained by her mother. Hazumu still retains somewhat of a male personality, and Tomari Kurusu, one of her good friends, attempts to teach Hazumu the ways of being a girl. However, Tomari herself finds it difficult to see Hazumu as a girl in her heart. At the end of the episode, Hazumu is surprised by two strangers in her room.


Hitoshi Sora, the alien who brought Hazumu back to life, begins to work at Hazumu's school as a biology teacher to more closely observe human beings. Later, Hazumu goes out shopping with Yasuna, she buys a pretty dress for Hazumu, then buys herself a similar dress, so that they are dressed almost alike, and look like teenage girl 'soul mates'. They both end up going to a karaoke bar, where due to an accident, Hazumu once again falls and encircles Yasuna, much to Yasuna's delight. Conflict and misunderstandings begin to arise in the form of a love triangle when it begins to become active between Hazumu, Yasuna and Tomari.


Sora, the Space Alien, continues to regularly check-up on Hazumu, but asks some embarrassing questions, too. Hazumu consults with Asuta, but to no avail. Hazumu's class gets the chance to sketch a drawing outside, but both Yasuna and Tomari want to be Hazumu's partner. They end up forming a group of three, but it quickly turns sour as Tomari brings up that Yasuna initially rejected Hazumu's Love Confession. Later, Hazumu finally learns of Yasuna's unique affliction of not being able to see males clearly. Then stating that she does not want to regret anymore, Yasuna gives Hazumu her first girl-with-girl kiss in an empty classroom. However, Tomari unexpectedly walks in on them, and is shocked at what she sees.


After Hazumu and Yasuna share a most passionate kiss, Tomari, upon seeing them, is put into a quandary. Feeling confused, with a touch of betrayal, Tomari begins to distance herself from Hazumu. She already did not especially care for Yasuna. To try and clarify her mind and heart, she begins spending time at the river's edge, sitting by herself on an abandoned 55 gallon drum. Hazumu and Yasuna grow closer as the two of them spend time together at Yasuna's house. Yasuna even tries to go in for a second kiss. Hazumu knows that something isn't kosher with Tomari, and joins her at the river's edge one evening. After baring their heart and soul to one another, the end up pledging their undying friendship and shojo ai love ( girl-to-girl Phila Love ) to one another.


Kashimashi: Girl Meets Girl (かしまし ガールミーツガール, Kashimashi Gāru Mītsu Gāru) is a Japanese yuri manga series written by Satoru Akahori and illustrated by Yukimaru Katsura. The manga was originally serialized in Dengeki Daioh between the July 2004 and May 2007 issues, and later published in five bound volumes by MediaWorks from January 2005 to May 2007. The story focuses on Hazumu Osaragi, a normal, albeit effeminate high school boy who is killed when an alien spaceship crash lands on him, only to be restored to health as a girl. This results in a same-sex love triangle that Hazumu finds herself in with two of her best female friends.


After Hazumu returns to school, Yasuna unexpectedly professes her love for Hazumu, but this serves only to confuse Hazumu as she adjusts to her new life as a girl. Yasuna, a rather feminine girl, has a unique affliction which makes her incapable of seeing males, and instead sees males as covered in a gray, hazy blur. Hazumu's childhood friend Tomari Kurusu, an athletic girl and tomboy, finds Hazumu's change difficult to cope with. Tomari starts to realize her own romantic feelings for Hazumu as Yasuna starts becoming closer to Hazumu, especially after Tomari witnesses Hazumu and Yasuna kissing one day after school. A conflict arises between Yasuna and Tomari who fight for Hazumu's affection while she is unable to choose between them. This results in a love triangle emerging between the three female main characters. Hazumu's best male friend Asuta Soro also starts having romantic feelings for Hazumu, but tries his best to repress them. Tomari's good friend Ayuki Mari, an intelligent girl interested in the sciences, continuously observes the ongoing development of the love triangle while keeping a stance of watching from afar.


The anime ends differently, with no life-threatening situation and Hazumu choosing Yasuna in order to help cure her worsening sight problem as it begins to degrade so she can no longer see girls as well. Afterwards however, Yasuna, who becomes able to see all people again, decides to break up with Hazumu, saying she can stand on her own, and in the follow-up original video animation episode, Hazumu confesses her love to Tomari on Christmas and the two get married in a ceremony held by Hitoshi.


When thinking on how to write about true love, Akahori considered laughingly that in normal relationships between boys and girls, it eventually tends towards having sex. In order to avoid this, he chose to have a cast of female main characters, but he felt that audiences have experienced this before and that it thus would not be enough. This is when he thought up the idea of changing the main character from a boy to a girl. Akahori knew this would be a problem, since normally changing a person's gender would cause complications, one of them being that the now-female character would invariably want to return to being male. He knew that there were a few problems that could not be avoided, but he wanted to remove the desire to turn back into a male. For this reason, Akahori devised that the character would not want to turn back into a male if there was the impact of the entire world already having accepted the fact that his gender had changed. To do this, Akahori decided to have the alien who crashed into the character to not only revive the character as a female, but to broadcast this over the entire world, which is what happens at the beginning of Kashimashi. Afterwards, Akahori felt it necessary to expand on the alien's role in the story. At this point in the development process, Akahori felt he could now begin writing the story.[4]


In July 2007, the English version of Kashimashi was Seven Seas Entertainment's best-selling title.[47] The first volume of the manga was given positive reviews from such sources as Newtype USA, a popular anime and manga magazine. The first volume was named as Newtype USA's Book of the Month for December 2006, and the review noted Seven Seas Entertainment's "fan-focused" translation, which retained the honorifics and much of the Japanese wordplay without efforts to localize the humor for the mainstream American market.[48] The review goes on to state that "for fans of more mainstream romantic productions, it's a neat twist on the traditional love-triangle formula, and a charming alternative to boys meeting girls."[48] In a review at Anime News Network (ANN), Carlo Santos commented that "the fast-moving events of this first volume combine to form a story of many moods: a gender-bending comedy, but with sci-fi touches, and most of all, a romance more touching than one might expect. The time has come to rethink the love triangle."[49] In a review at IGN, A. E. Sparrow stated "there's plenty to enjoy in the first book, however. Hazumu attempting to buy his first bra is pretty humorous, as are the occasional visits from the aliens who put him in this situation in the first place."[50]


The first manga volume was generally panned by Deb Aoki at About.com where she felt the characters were "too flat and uninteresting", and the story being "too far-fetched" and "ridiculous" to make a good story. However, Aoki admitted the art is "quite nice, and there are some moments of genuine tenderness and humor."[52] In a review of the first manga volume by Matthew Alexander at Mania.com, he thought that while "stories with love triangles or gender-switching protagonists have been done before...Hazumu's change into a girl explores romance between people of the same sex in an interesting and comedic way."[53]


KASHIMASHI: GIRL MEETS GIRL IS A MALE-TO-FEMALE TRANSGENDER THEMED WIKI, AS WELL AS A LIGHT YURI THEMED WIKI. This means that in both the anime and manga, there are occasionally shown social interludes of girl-with-girl romance. Nothing is more than PG-13, but reader or viewer discretion is advised.
