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

As a gigantic Type-Moon fan, I recognize that this review may be a bit biased. Indeed, if you aren't familiar with any of the characters in Fate stay/night or Tsukihime, or the universe both stories take place in (aptly named the "Nasuverse" by fans after the author, Kinoko Nasu), then don't expect to enjoy it nearly as much as I did. On the other hand, if you are familiar with anything Type-Moon, then prepare for the best parody series in recent memory. In short, your knowledge of Type-Moon lore is directly proportional to the amount of enjoyment you will get out of this series. 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.
