Warlords of Sigrdrifa and Maesetsu! Coverage Status

When it comes to covering these two shows it’s going to be a little tricky, more so for one of the two. Let me explain.

Claudia's try hard introduction

Sigrdrifa episode 2 was straightforward. It was a solid. Not much happened in the grand scheme of things. Claudia thought her new teammates were weird and hard to relate with, mainly because her dad told her stories of how serious and badass Japanese Samurai were and the women striving to be perfect. Still, she tried to blend in as best as she could. Suddenly the aliens attacked and she learned that despite their oddness her team are very capable and badass when needed. She mellowed down and was more open to be part of the team. Oh and Azuzu has a thing for genki girls or girls like Miyako. That or Sonoka joked about her type.

I suppose I could come back to the show when the main story moves along or there is substantial yuri development. For now I’ll enjoy it on the side. I’m still enjoying it. The main cast are solid so far and the battles against the aliens are pretty cool.

Maesetsu Stand Up

On to Maesetsu! This is a comedy anime about comedy, specifically “manzai”, referring to double acts or stand-up comedy. The show follows a group of girls near the end of their high school years striving to become great comedians, discuss the art of comedy and try to see what works and what doesn’t or find there’s usually an audience for jokes that seemingly don’t work. The premiere revolved around a gag that fell flat each time. It was “an imitation of Konata Izumi (Lucky Star), imitating Shin-chan (Crayon Shin-chan) getting in an elevator.”. Every time our protagonist told the joke it flopped. HOWEVER, one of her teachers who saw her perform the gag several times eventually found it hilarious. The girls even discussed my favorite gag, the “long pause”.

Based on my description some may mistake it for being similar to Joshiraku. Not really. It’s more like Sore ga Seiyu but with stand up comedy. However, here it’s a bit tougher to discuss because unlike voice acting experience, the art of humor is harder to talk about and comedy is very subjective. I laughed many times throughout the premiere but others may not even get a chuckle. I think this will be one of those shows I review when it’s done.

Maesetsu Ships

As for potential ships, easy. Ship the duos together. We got a taste of their chemistry throughout the episode. More so two of the four couples seen here.

Mafuyu X Fubuki

Main couple, Mafuyu X Fubuki.

To summarize, Sigrdrifa coverage will depend on plot and relationship progression while Maesetsu is a bit too complicated to cover weekly thus will be reviewed once it’s finished.

    In that case I’ll put both on my watch-later list as there’re already more than enough fun anime to keep me busy this season. Which is a very good thing.

    They’re not “at the end of their high school years”, they’re out of high school and in college age years.
    I liked it, but there’s definitely some cultural humor going on here too that I’m missing. And that the subs are struggling to convey, not for lack of trying.

    As for Sigrdrifa, pretty certain the plot’s going to start hitting hard soon….

    I think it’s fine to not cover these two unless something significant happens.

    I love moeblobs and these shows like Maesetsu where the girls are nicely in couples from the beginning (they’re a good counterpoint to the shows with tangled relationship chaos, which I also love ^^)

    The main pair is cute and I also adore that blonde cutie Kanae (rightmost one).

    No need to burden yourself with extra reviews if nothing too significant is happening, I can understand that.

    For me, Sigrdrifa is still on the 3 ep trial. I’ll see how it goes later this week and either give it an extension or drop it.

    Was on the fence with Maesetsu! and based on what you’re saying, and knowing my tastes, I think I’ll pass on it. I watched a bit of Joshiraku when that aired and wasn’t really into it. Sore ga Seiyu was good, I did like that.

    I’ll keep an eye out for more posts about these shows in the future though.

      When something big happens I’ll talk about Sigrdrifa again. It’s kinda like what I did Akanesasu Shoujo.

      I’d say give the first episode of Maesetsu a go and see for yourself. It’s not like Joshiraku.

    Sigrdrifa continues to be enjoyable and has great characters. It has a really good OP and a beautiful ED.
    As for Maesetsu! honestly the only bit that made me laugh was the long pause. I will give it a chance though because i really like the idea of a anime about comedians and hope it gets better from now on. I also really like that they are out of high school, makes it different from the rest. I just hope that the humour isn’t too “Japan focused” like in Wave, Listen to me.
