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:
- Setup – Get Mikuru into a sexy bunny outfit to sell flyers
- Reinforcement – The girls get ready to give out the handouts when a teacher shows up.
- 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.
I watched it because I read a review saying this was really deplorable and was a contender for worst anime of the year…. o-o turns out my standards for bad are too high.
I can sum up this anime in one word: cheap
The animation is cheap,
The designs look cheap
And writing feels cheap.
This is a budget anime!
I even think that the studio has stolen other character designs that look somewhat similar to the manga just to keep the price down. I would be surprised at all if this anime gets in trouble for plagiarism (it has happened before).
What is the show about: A demon/angle has a
death note kiss note. When two people’s names are written in it they have to kiss/marry or they die.
If this was a 15 minute per episode show I might see it working however, with each episode being full length and the amount of insanity they displayed in the first episode…I can see this becoming a train wreck really fast.
*coming back slowly*
This is about a boy who is forced to join a space police force and has an alien inside him.
This show is a collage of different anime styles…. which unfortunately works more against it the for it. In a manga using the background to express an emotion is normal, when you do it in an anime it just looks strange and out of place. O-T They come sporadically for no reason and then go as fast as they came (like a fart in the wind). Was it meant to be funny?
I did learn while studying this anime that it was made by the same person who wrote “hit man reborn” (that heavy explains the humour).
^_o Far as Teen anime go this is satisfyingly good; the show has way more than enough energy to keep my attention.
I still have no idea what possessed the director to give that woman bouncy breast! however, that’s one problem in a pretty entertaining anime (can easily see how people would be turned off by this).
What is this anime about? I don’t know; they didn’t establish anything reassembling a plot,story or even a premise. The show is about a guy who is found with no memory and is now working in a Town….or is it a village??? while being watched over by a cat girl.
There is a basis for an idea there, wonder what the anime will do with it???
It feels like I’m watching an opening to an RPG…..which just makes me want to play an RPG.
It’s really pretty and the music compliments it so well, I just wish that this first episode could have set something moving just to make the show feel a little less slow and shallow.
Black Butler is about a demon butler who is contractually linked to Ciel Phantomhive.
I have heard a lot about this anime and my reaction to the first 2 episodes was…. *drumroll*… annoyance.
I might have to re-watch it subbed because the Dub voices are so fake that my brain is naturally rejecting them as people (I don’t usually have a problem with Dub’s).
Seeing as I have read 2 volumes of the manga I think a little more context needs to be given to this one line: “I’m one hell of a butler”
In the manga I don’t think you know he is a demon when he first drops the line making you think:“There is something more sinister to this guy.” In the anime your reaction to the line after hearing it many times in 2 episodes is “It’s not funny the hundredth time you say it!”.
The animation looks feasible and the diversions from the source are understandable.
The show is about a girl learning to scuba dive.
I feel so sorry for this anime! You can tell it wants to be a dramatic story about two friends who…..o-o why is it so dramatic?
At first I thought it was the lesbian over tones, but in later episodes those tones practically disappear into pure friendship. Is she beating though her emotional walls and finally making friends……. which was established in the first episode she had. She wants to be able to make her own choice…..by having someone pressure her to join a club???
I’m sorry! No matter how I look at it the drama in the anime feels very forced.
Every time the show tries to do a chibi comedy bit I have to roll my eyes and call the show ugly. The art shifts in this anime don’t work on any level, in fact a lot of the time it looks disproportionate or straight up terrifying.
I found that the show found its footing by episode 5 (I need to see where it takes this idea).
This is a bland Moe show that is clearly using the idea of angels and demons as a thin skin.
Do you want to know the basic difference between a demon and an angel is?
The idea of good and bad is purely a human concept which we use to ground are morals (something they don’t need).
Ditching these extreme ways of being for human vessel just seem like a waste of potential jokes. I like the idea of an angel being corrupted by a computer game, too bad there is no straight man for her to stand out as an anomaly.
*jokes about sexual assault are not funny!*
The show is about……..I’m not sure???
I feel that there are 3 different ways one can watch this anime.
- Tomoya can’t directly reflect how he feels in the real world so he interprets it into a dating simulator. This root in theory gets him all the girls while at the same time none of the girls.
- He is a dense otaku manipulating people so that he can live within his own little delusion. The way he talks and treats Megumi as if she was his character is a little disturbing and really makes you wonder about his mental health (it’s ok to have her be in character when you are look for ideas……however, it gets very creepy when he expects her to be like that 24 7).
- The show is trying to say: “life is like a dating simulator”
Which is why I reply with: “It’s not like that at all!”
By the midway point in this anime split into two shows: one which had a main female lead that looked at the games from a realistic eye and two being straight up over dramatized trash.
If you want to do the “life is like a dating simulator” plot you have to commit to it from the start! All this drama has no impact of the final game which makes the drama feel extra hollow by the time you reach the last episode.
I don’t mind telling you how this anime ends: A band plays a song and one root of his game is completed. *T_T I feel so fulfilled.*
My score 4/10
The first half was average, the second half nosedives into a different anime where everyone is over dramatic for the sake of being over dramatic.
The show is about a group of character designers.
Think I have said this before: “There is no need for this to be set in a game company.”
This is starting to get under my skin a little, for a lot of these anime I’m watching are picking interesting settings and then not using then to there fullest.
The game they are trying to make feels very superfluous to the show with how relaxed everyone is (it’s as if deadlines don’t exist).
The show is cuddly and watchable…..just wish it had more of an identity outside of : “cute girls do cute things.”
This anime is about a vampires that die when you take there clothes off.
They tried to make jokes as fights happened….that’s it.
The only thing I remember is that the animation looked really stilted and at some points it looked very ugly.
I personally found that most bemusing moment in this anime was when they randomly switched drawing styles just to show you a naked woman.
Don’t forget the overly Sexualized kissing scene.
OK I need help! The ending song to this anime sound awfully close to another I have heard, dose anyone know the name of that anime? My head goes to “baka and test” and “school live” but, The back of my head is screaming at me to figure out what this song sounds similar to?
