The Summer season continues catering to me more than I could have anticipated. This truly is The Summer of OG.
All I asked for during my Summer picks was for this show to be better than the disappointing . So far, it’s surpassing my wishes by not only having a more likable cast, but also being funnier, personally. I could not stop laughing. Also, the excellent use of “silent reactions” were excellent. I do hope they’ll use those often, along with the Bobby’s World inspired protagonist’s fantasies. Oh, and Sono is voiced by Hidamari Sketch’s Landlady. AWESOME! Lastly, I predict Yura X Sono subtext.
Although I am enjoying the Summer season so far, WHAT IS IT WITH ALL THE SHOWS WITH WEIRD, LONG NAMES!? Still, shows with weird, long names are usually the more interesting ones and this show is no different. So this is the show with the vague description of two identical orange haired girls side-by-side. Now, according to Moonlitasteria, some fans are already praising this show as the next Madoka. I disagree. Is the show really good and interesting? YES! However, proclaiming it to be to be the next Madoka is premature. Yes, it’s a mahou shoujo anime with dark elements and blood, but that’s not enough to automatically label it a Madoka successor. It’s more like the show was inspired by Madoka’s success and it wants to create its own special dark mahou shoujo brew. That does make me wonder…if the “preachers” are somehow right…then episode 3 should be a very interesting one indeed. We shall see…
When I watch this show, I feel enlightened…somehow. When I watch this show, I picture inside my head…”yes, this is the kind of atmosphere I will be involved in once I enter the job district. These are the kind of people I will have to associate with when I get my first job. Also, I would like to marry a Lucy.” In short, this show’s good…except it does not have a mini-goddess. In order for this show to be truly great, it needs a Yamada Aoi.
That’s it for this second round of impressions. Maybe I’ll finally get around to talking about “Free!” now.
