I just finished episode six of Pupipo!, and oh my God! It was the most boring, most unbearable episode yet! Az is so fucking annoying I just want to strangle that little bitch. And of course, Po isn’t helping at all (I can even argue that it’s making the anime more unbearable.). Wakaba is soooooooooooooooooooo boring that it hurts. I’ll say again like I said it with Free! and Miss Monochrome.
If your main protagonist is boring as shit, then automatically, your anime falls flat on its face.
Oh yeah, did I mention at the end, there was an unnecessary love thing going on between two extras that had nothing to do with the main cast? Yeah, because I totally give a shit about those two.
Fuck it, I’m pretty much done here.
Opening and ending that take up 1/4 of the anime, Onii-chan finds Imouto as a monster eating people. He ignores that and loves her like she’s done nothing. Dammit, when’re we getting to the sole reason why I wanted to watch this again?! Fuck it, I’m done. Let’s watch Magical Warfare. At least that anime has a cool anime ending song.
As for Wooser… he lost some charm, but he’s still cool.
Shit… this is going to be a tough one to do. Okay, so what do I think about this?
It’s not bad, but it’s certainly not the greatest. Like, I don’t really have much of a feeling towards it, know what I’m saying?
So what’re the goods?
First off, the animation is pretty damn decent. It’s pretty solid and it works with the show. And I do like Kate. She’s entertaining and pretty funny. The concept is pretty well executed. And some of the moments are funny, especially towards the end.
So.. what’re the bads?
The opening theme song is pretty bland and boring, which is kind of sad since Maaya Sakamoto is actually a pretty good singer. And the other characters in the show are pretty boring.
I don’t know. Should I keep or drop this show?
I think I’ll keep.
If you read my first impression of Tonari no Seki-kun, then you’d think I was dropping this, or keeping this.
It’s the latter because man, this was a lot funnier than the first episode! What happened that made finally like this show all of a sudden?
Nothing much. Just Seki-kun playing shogi, and Yokoi fucking it up by throwing her eraser at the Gold General piece. But it was the imagination of Yokoi’s and the comedic timing that made this episode work so well. Never have I laughed so hard in my life!
Tonari no Seki-kun, you’re here to stay.
Well, I wasn’t really looking forward to this show, but you know what?
It wasn’t that bad.
Yeah, I was pretty surprised myself. This wasn’t half-bad.
First off, the characters seem to be decent enough from what I know, and none of them are annoying enough for hatred. These seem like real people. The realism in here is really fascinating! I also like how there’s competition, making it again, more realistic. It shows a pretty accurate part of Japanese idols. The other good thing is, surprisingly, the character designs.
“BUT THEY LOOK THE SAME!!!”
No shit. That’s the good thing about it. They pretty much look the same to get the accuracy of Japanese idols. They don’t all look different like IdolM@sters. They look the same, but I can still tell which character is which by personality.
However, there are some flaws with this show as well. Namely, the animation and the quality. My God is it poor. Especially this scene.
Was this really necessary?
It looks like an amateur did this. Hell, it doesn’t even look like an amateur did this. It looks like a fifth-grader did this during computer class when he/she got bored. And that’s pretty sad when I consider all the good points I put up above.
But, despite these flaws, this is a keeper.
Folks, I have an important announcement, so shut the fuck up and listen to me, or else, your personal information will be on the internet.
Here goes nothing.
In all my “years” of watching anime, I’ve never been so disappointed by how a concept is executed before this came along. This isn’t a disappointment like say… Gingitsune or Pupipo!. OH HELL NO! This is fucking Kotoura-san disappointment! I. CAN’T. STAND. THIS. SHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!!!!!!!!
Now don’t get me wrong; I don’t discriminate shows, even if the genre as a whole doesn’t appeal to me. I based on my interests on the concepts. And with Sakura Trick’s concept, I thought I was going to enjoy this show fairly well.
But… no. I only saw awful comedy, fake characters, a full-length-episode anime that should’ve been a short, and the rape of effects. And I mean R A P E. They use it way too much. And I mean too much. I mean, every second. Actually, less than a secon- you get what I mean.
Studio Deen, what the fuck, man?
This should’ve been a full-length-episode anime.
There. Review over.
