Resume of Whispered words:

Sumika Murasame is in love with Ushio Kazama, and Masaki Akemiya is in love with Murasame. Nothing more than a classic love triangle to begin a shoujo manga, would you say. The thing is, Murasame and Kazama are both girls. And this one is clearly lesbian and only interested in beautiful girls such as Kazama. To add more confusion, Akemiya will crossdress into a girl to get closer to Murasame. In short, we have a love story full of misunderstandings ahead of us.

My opinion on Whispered Words:

“As expected”. There lies the problem. This is not the first love triangle you have seen, and this will not be the last. But they all tend to resemble one another. You will probably be bored as soon as you have figured you the actantial model of this one. The anime plays the “moe” card as much as it can and hardly dwells on the scenario, which can be qualified as poor, as the characters. You really wonder why some of them even make an appearance, given their non-influence to the story at hand. Only the use of the homosexuality theme seems to give this anime any interest at all. It might seem new if it is your first, but you would have to live on another planet not to have had some echoes of Yaoi and Yuri manga styles. In short, this anime was a disappointment to me, I expected better. The episodes follow each other without any surprise, enticing me to stop it prematurely. Speaking of which, the anime stops without a cliffhanger, and you really wonder if there is a 14th episode because you expect a better ending, but there is not.
