First impression Anime-Gataris

Not a lot to choose from this season.

This anime is about references…and that is it.

I have a question for you:  If a show lists off the names of other shows are they referencing them or just stating their existence?

Here is another question: When dose referencing turn into stealing?


In episode 2 the girls go outside and handout flyers while dressed like bunny girls (Haruhi Suzumiya reference). Here is the problem- they don’t do anything with it! In the original show they are referring the gag goes like this:

  1. Setup – Get Mikuru into a sexy bunny outfit to sell flyers
  2. Reinforcement – The girls get ready to give out the handouts when a teacher shows up.
  3. Payoff – they got in trouble for dressing inappropriately at the school gates.

Here is another example:

At the end of episode 2 the school council came crashing in saying their club won’t be excepted…even though they had not sent a form in yet??? I don’t think even power-hungry councils in anime can discuss and reject a club that doesn’t exist.


I was also left wondering if the show was sponsored by the studio behind ‘Re:Zero’, how many times can you name drop one show.


The show need to find a stable story structure, the novelty of referencing can only get you so far.
