Once upon a time I had no idea what anime was aside from some films that mostly included works by Miyazaki. But then in the Fall of 2012 I stumbled onto some shows and got hooked. One of those shows was called Happiness!

I was still dodging the rocks of what anime was all about so the main source of interest that I had while watching this show was an intrigue to discover anime’s identity. That was enough to carry the show for me and I was able to watch it all the way through. I had no idea about the line between something of quality read more

This series, I HAVE TO DECLARE: I stuck with it to write a review, and so I will write a shortcut way to watch this show at the bottom of this review. Some episodes in the middle were a bit unnecessary.

[Mood: light-medium, dull]
[Notable pickings: Magic: 7 l Comedy: 4 l Romance: 3 l Action: 4 l School life: 8 ]

Hmm the story eh? Ep 1- 2 were sort of intros, 3-7 were more of character-based, and ep8-12 were with a plot.

The storytelling method is really really dull at times. I especially only appreciated about 30% of the content in eps 3-7 on read more

There are plenty of series where I've been unimpressed by the first few episodes, but grown to enjoy or totally love the result. It can be all about the writers hitting their stride, learning the characters, finding the new twists on old ideas that will surprise you, and somewhere in the middle there'll be a beach trip.

This is not one of those series. This is the complete opposite.

The writers actually started with a decent enough twist on the "magic high school" trope, and the first few episodes are "good enough" to make you want to see where it goes.

IT GOES NOWHERE! Instead, the writing spirals read more

Both are based off eroge PC games. Both are mahou shojo and both are 12 episodes. With Nanatsuiro Drops--it's hard to tell it's from an eroge video game though.
