|Sakurano Tazusa is a Japanese figure ice-skater, the main heroine of this anime. One day in an ice-skating competition in Canada, she failed doing “triple lutz” trick during her performance, which obviously made her lost the competition.
At the same time, Pete Pamps, a 16 year-old Canadian boy, an acrobatic pilot, was doing an air stunt. Something went wrong, the plane crashed and he died.
It was very soon when Tazusa started to hear voices in her head. By miracle, Pete’s spirit is now “attached” to Tazusa’s body for 100 days. He sees whatever Tazusa sees, and he feels whatever Tazusa feels.
Haunted by a Canadian ghost, Tazusa tries very hard to get rid of her new “accompany”. After several attempts, she learnt that every damage she made to Pete will result equal damage to herself; except for one thing… Pete hates tomatoes very much ! And so Tazusa has a new favorite food, tomato !
I don’t usually watch sport anime. Especially ice-skating or ballet, which are usually associated as anime for girls. But I must say that Ginban Kaleidoscope is an anime worth watching.
A very nice sport anime. Love the music, love the story, love Tazusa’s new “maid” ice-skating program, love the way Tazusa addresses herself as 10 billion dollar beauty, lol. Recommended for all ages.
