Okay. So, we have two quite serious franchises most well known for their Visual Novels, Anime... One of them having an anime, and strangely their Fighting Games too. What could we do with them next?

Make a spin-off? Okay... Give it to a freshman company that could ruin it all? Alright...
The result?



Carnival Phantasm is an OVA Comedy Sketch Anime based on the Manga called Take-MOON which was written by Type-MOON's Eri Takenashi to celebrate Type-MOON's 10th Anniversary.

I originally heard about this anime back in 2010 but I never had the chance to watch it. So I decided to watch it last year; and read more

Once upon a time, there was a certain, quite funny manga featuring the characters from both sides of the Nasuverse, and telling us the story of their meetup. Its title was Take Moon, and it was liked by those who understood it, and unrecognized by those who didn’t. With the former being in a definite minority, Take Moon didn’t become overly popular, or in fact – its existence was unnoticed by a wider audience. But then, to celebrate their tenth birthday, Type-Moon announced the upcoming OVA, which was to be loosely based on the, already dust-covered, Take Moon. I must admit – I wasn’t entirely read more

Both series are Type-Moon related franchise so expect some of the same characters to pop up here and there. But more importantly, both series are VERY funny for their humor. In fact, both series are portrayed as parodies with no direct/serious plot to the whole.

There is a lot of funny dialogues as well as comedy going on. There is also the school life background where even more comedy ensures.

Verdict: watch for the humor and entertainment rather than taking either series seriously.
Zany hijinks based on more serious works.
