I thought this was gonna be an idol anime from the thumbnail, but it turns out its even worse! Its about a theatre company! Specifically its about a girl helping save her the failing all-male theatre company ("all-male" here means one member and a parrot) her missing father used to work at from the yakuza, … Continue reading First Impressions: A3! _ACT!ADDICT!ACTORS!_
There sure are a lot of idol anime this season. I gotta say, this is the first anime I've seen to accurately portray the true weirdness of the Boston Terrier face. Still cute tho. From the perspective of someone who's never understood the appeal of idols, much less idol anime, this one isn't bad. The … Continue reading First Impressions: ARP Backstage Pass
My sibling refused to do this one on the grounds that, and I quote, they 'simply did not vibe with it.' The characters in this show are not worthy of your presence, Scientist Bear. Ha ha, nerds try to make everything math, hyuk hyuk hyuk, smart people talk like robots who swallowed the dictionary. This … Continue reading First Impressions: Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove it.
Is this another idol anime? ...is always a mistake. I don't think this is an idol anime, actually. At least, not in the traditional sense. I mean, yeah there's a competition, and singing, and all that, but this show seems more... dark than the traditional idol anime. There's a shady government agency/business that selects random … Continue reading First Impressions: 22/7 (nanabun no nijyuuni)
This episode opened with a graphic content warning, which set up expectations that it then failed to live up to. Interspecies Reviewer is a.... sex comedy? I don't know, its about a trio of adventurers arguing about which variety of monster girl is best. It, uh. It basically just feels like a visual representation of … Continue reading First Impressions: Interspecies Reviewers
Y'know, its always a delight when a show manages to grab you in the first 3 minutes. In/Spectre manages to do that, and then keep my attention through the entire first episode, which many shows sem to struggle with. This show is about a girl named Iwanaga Kotoko, who was abducted by spirits as a … Continue reading First Impressions: In/Spectre
This one looks like it's about boys being dumb, is it about boys being dumb? In his defense, coming up with an awesome story about why you wear an eye patch is one of the perks inherent in wearing an eye patch. It is! It is about boys being dumb! In varying and slightly amusing … Continue reading First Impressions: A Destructive God Sits Next to Me
Ever wonder what it would be like if Oda Nobunaga got reincarnated as a dog? Too bad! You're gonna find out anyway. Hard same, my dude. At least, if you watch this show, you will. Apparently, the answer is 'freak out, and whine about the lack of dignity a lot'. Don't let that description put … Continue reading First Impressions: Oda Cinnamon Nobunaga
Yay, fashion... she cute This show is a look into the fashion industry, as a couple of teenagers pursue their dreams of becoming a 'hypermodel' and a fashion designer. It's a surprisingly hopeful take on the subject, though it doesn't seem like it'll be shying away from the challenges and flaws of runway fashion, by … Continue reading First Impressions: Smile Down the Runway
Ohhhhh, its Tama like the generic cat name, not like slang for balls. That's a relief, maybe.
