What a slaughter.
Maji de Watashi ni Koishinasai (TV) is one of the two visual novels that was adapted this fall season. In comparison to Mashiro-iro, which was a decent adaptation, MajiKoi’s adaptation was pure shit. In Mashiro’s review, I stated that Mashiro was considered an “average visual novel”, which made the mediocre storyline understandable. But, MajiKoi doesn’t have the luxury of using the excuse “the visual novel was bad”, it was considered a great visual novel (8.71@VNDB). In other words, it was a great source with great potential.
Now, why exactly does the adaptation blow? Is it because they adapted it into a generic harem instead of an enjoyable slice of life? Or is it because they completely slaughtered the characters, and developed the cast of respectable female characters into homogenized whores craving the main dude’s dick. Well, it would have to be a mixture of the two; but predominantly the latter.
Now, I can understand that Western tastes and tastes in Japan differ. They like excessive fan service, I find it irritating. There’s an obvious difference, but it’s bearable for the most part; it’s not as prominent as it could be. But there’s a limit to everything too. When every other scene is censored due to nudity, it’s basically blatantly insinuating “Fuck you, buy the blue-ray release”. It’s probably a really effective way to catalyze sales in my opinion, but it’s still a douche thing to do. That could be ignored if the other aspects of the show was actually adapted decently, but they weren’t. .
My first major gripe would be the harem aspect of it. The first arc of MajiKoi, before branching out and choosing individual path, was essentially, a slice of life. It’s really extenuating more on friendship then it is with the individual intimate relationships, it’s reminiscent of AnoHana in a way. The main arc in the visual novel basically contains little to no romance and it’s not hindered by infatuation until you begin to branch (but that’s still only with one character). The arc is more than enough to be animated into twelve episodes, it took six hours to read. That’s reading with skipping the majority of the voice acting, basically spamming enter. It’s inevitably understandable on why they would adapt MajiKoi as a harem over a sexless slice of life (It’ll probably sell well), but it was still something that could have been done.
Now, the second gripe that basically ruins the visual novel, is slaughtering the characters. It’s similar to reading a book and developing the “ideal archetype” of the character, only to see it getting completely revamped in a movie adaptation. By slaughter, I don’t mean some slight miscalculations, it’s some pretty noticeable stuff. Some pretty notable ones would include the main character, Yamato. Now, in the visual novel, the main character is basically portrayed as an intelligent, devious tactician when it comes to facing everyday challenges; that carries on over in the anime. But in the VN, he wasn’t lusting after his friends, and his philosophies were more complex. In the anime, he was basically painted as a kind person as a kid when it came to taking in Miyako. In the visual novel, he just mentioned that she could stay if she wanted, it wasn’t through any good will, he was a nihilistic kid, I don’t think he really cared. On the other hand, each female in the visual novel had their own individual personality, in the anime, they’re basically homogenized into lusting after the dude(most notably Chris, she hated his devious dishonorable personality initially in the visual novel, however, in the anime, she doesn’t mind it). In the VN, they thought of him as a friend, and nothing more unless you pursued it while branching out.
Objective Score: 2/10. It’s a disappointment. It did one of the worst things you could do in an adaptation, it slaughtered the character. It turned something with little fan service into something based off of fan service. Action was actually the focal centerpiece in the anime, in the novel, it’s more of an underlying theme.
Subjective Score: 4/10: If you didn’t read the visual novel, you might actually like this. Most people reading the visual novel will probably dislike this immensely, it slaughtered the personalities of the majority of the characters. I guess you’ll like this if you like action, boobs, and cliché characters (excluding Miyako, she’s basically the only characters that’s pretty damn awesome in both versions, but then again, adapting a chick who’s going after the dude probably wasn’t the hardest in comparison to the rest). read more

The first episode is full of action, the next ones are full of fanservice, but then we have this comedy drama overload with a bit of action, and it's not a great combination.
The art is awfull compared to the VN, but that will always happen, anyways, Mayumi and his co-workers made a great job.
The music goes perfectly with the scenes, Katsuhiko-san is good with his work on this and Mirai Nikki.
Every character is different, specially the female ones. personally, I fell in love with Koyuki and Kazuko, Mayo is so cute (kawaii) and that thingy called Kuroko it's so random. Also, I'm a big fan of Asakawa Yuu, she made a great job with Momo, and even when i hate Yuko Goto's voice, she's wonderful with Yukie and Matsukaze.
Enjoyment? well, besides this genre mess, it was a good anime, and I know that the VN is 100% better, but if I have the chance to buy the BDs, I will... read more

When i finished this series i was kinda surprised, because the score in MAL itself didnt represent how good this anime was, i dont say this anime was the best but its quite entertaining, that 6.99 is just so UNDERRATED. remember that.
I havent see the VN itself so i presents this review for all newbie (like me), so i judge this anime based on how excited when i watching this anime.
STORY - The story itself , i am not quite sure if this anime have a plot. I though the preview in MAL has explain it all. its about a bunch of girls and some boy who lives in under one roof, they represent theyself as kawakami family (sounds like a mafia, huh?), and the first of the episode you will see a war (yeah a war) which happen like in three kingdoms era. if you're thinking WTF is this, then i said this was an extracurriculer from the school that they attends. Shortly, for me Maji de Watashi is like Angel beats (Bunch of people) + Oda Nobuna (the war from edo era). be reversed from the story itself, The jokes that appears in this anime was really hit the spot, its really funny and quite amusing.6/10
ART - The artwork that the Maji de Watashi have is surprisingly good, i mean REALLY GOOD. its really catching your eyes. Colorful scenery, the character itself (lol), i am 100% sure you wouldnt bored to watch 12 episode that this anime have. 8/10
VOICE ACTOR - I am really attached by the voice for each character, they really represents the trait of each character, like Momoyo, she is tomboy, and the voice that they present was really like a real tomboy person, heavy voice and yet its cute. 8/10
SONG - This is maybe the reason why i love to watch Maji de Watashi. especially the OP song + the animation for the OP itself. Its superbly good and yet it fits with the anime.Honestly, i never skip the OP.
CHARACTER - Well, its like any other harem anime, we have a tsundere (Christiane Friedrich), Dandere ( Yukie Mayuzum), the energetic one (Kazuko Kawakami), Big boobs (Momoyo Kawakami), and of course the obssesive one (Miyako Shiina) which reminds me of Sacchan in Gintama. lol. and for the main lead we have Naoe Yamato, which is very fits for the male lead, he is smart and yet its doesnt easy to tease this guy with the flirt from all the girls. and a point plus for this male lead is he is not "shy" like any other harem anime.
We have a bunch of unique girls, of course it was the standard of all harem. but somehow i found its really amusing. 7/10
CONCLUSION - Basically, its lack of the story like everyone had said. but i am not really like concern about that problem since for me harem anime is just for entertaining, so i score this anime based on how satisfaction i am when i watching this anime, so did i satisfied with this anime? yes it is. its funny and yet admirable, especially for each character. so 7/10 for me.

So what can I say about Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai!? Well I'll start with the good things, the things I enjoyed before I get into what is wrong with it.
The art, beautiful and should be the benchmark level of quality for all anime these days. The character's all looked unique and had their own amazing look about them.
As an ecchi lover, the straight up nudity and scenes of the 'ecchi' nature were pretty damn good but they're just not enough to fix the rest of this train wreck.
So let's talk about story. Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai! actually felt like it was a third season to a long running anime rather than a single season. There were so many things that were 'assumed', that the viewer would know. Not only that, the pacing was absolutely pathetic. When you spend over half of an episode with the same scene of the protagonist getting stomped and trying to convince one of his girls that being naked in front of him wasn't weird, you've got some serious pacing problems with your anime.
The characters themselves, not bad, except for the bloody protagonist! The protagonist is, and I quote
The main figure or one of the most prominent figures in a real situation.
A hero, someone who's prominent, somebody you're supposed to feel emotions for. Compare Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai!'s protagonist to Sword Art Online's protagonist, Kirito. Huge emotion coming from him, especially in the novel but I honestly wished Yamato would go ahead and get killed.
Oh, you think SAO is too different an anime to Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai!? Okay then, let's compare it to Highschool DXD. Issei, again but with a similar position to Yamato, shows far more emotion and is a way more likeable character.
Honestly, unless you're just in it for the nudity, NOT worth watching, otherwise, episode 4. You're welcome. read more

However, should you have read the VN beforehand, STAY AWAY FROM THIS. Dear God. I cannot emphasize this enough. It is completely detached from any of the VN routes, is not loyal to the personality of the characters, and is generally not an outstanding anime to begin with.
I would strongly suggest avoiding this one.
Dec 14, 2011
Maji de Watshi is about a high school dude with no power surrounded by chicks with a lot of it. A plot we've seen a million times. This one is hardly refreshing. The only difference is that this anime tries to make some political statement, but fails in every way imaginable. In the meantime, there's cheap ecchi that's terrible and rehashed episodes within the arc itself so that one's viewing displeasure isn't focused on just one thing. Awesome, right?
Maji de Watshi is easily one of the worst anime I have ever watched. Not only is the main character rendered so impotent by weakness and stupidity, enough to make Perez Hilton look macho, but at the same time, the story is expecting the viewer to believe he's actually a genius tactician!!! The animation is fine, but the logic is missing in all aspects. One scene actually depicted a girl who is supposed to be able to move quickly enough to fight 5 people at once, shooting a bullet through an arrow AND through the string of the firing bow while in motion. Then, five seconds later, the powerless main character somehow grabs her arm and stun guns her. Epic retarded laziness is the only way to describe this.
There's no payoff, by the way, if you're looking for something to hope for. It ends as badly as it begins. Avoid... this... show!

If I haven't played the VN, I'm pretty sure that I'm gonna wondering and goes "Huh?". There's no proper introduction of who they are, what their relation is, how can they involved in the war and so on. You have to guess it yourself. One of the reasons why I give a bad score on the story is because, the story doesn't revolves around the "Kazama Family". It's only the main character and the heroines. And it's too many ero scenes. I mean A LOT. It such a big let down if you compare it to the VN. But, I like the battle scenes.
I like the art. The girls are so pretty cute and the guys are cool. This is one of the good sides of the anime.
Well, I pretty much like the opening and ending song. I like how all of the heroines singing at the ending song.
Man, this is the worst. The main character is a really great tactician in the VN. But here, he's just a shitty hentai. And the girls, how can you have an interest in someone like him. I literally want to cry.
Well, if you're a man you're gonna enjoy this. The battle scenes are pretty cool and the fan services is a wow. They serve it without censor. I don't know if there's a censored version or not. But as an anime lover, it's an okay.
I don't recommend this anime. Only watch this anime if you don't have another collection to watch. I recommend the VN though. read more

But I loved it. The first episode really caught my eye. It came from the middle of nowhere with memorable characters where I was already beginning to pick favorites from and humor that's suited to my tastes.
I didn't expect to enjoy it and found it while randomly scrolling through youtube, but I did.
This is adapted from a eroge visual novel and while the art isn't amazing and is a little generic--I love the characters.
I don't find any of the characters useless or annoying. The characters are strong and everyone has their fair share of time with the audience. I'm entertained and when it comes down to it--that's why people make anime, draw manga and continue on with their stories.
I really don't have much to say except to give it a try and hopefully it suits your tastes. read more

This anime has an underlying story that starts somewhere in the middle. The first episode is one that reveals all the characters and is an amazing showcase of animation and lack of plot-like elements. This anime is very much so similar to Highschool DxD in that regard. However, unlike DxD, this anime doesn't fill up the non-story related episodes with something that builds character and instead uses them for pure fan service.
*SPOILER ALERT maybe* the end of the ending just screamed deus ex machina.
The art in this anime is pretty decent. While I did not enjoy this anime overall, the art and animation were definitely on the brighter side of things.
Nothing too memorable or dis-likable about the soundtrack they used. It was something I ignored for the most part.
While I would like to give it lower, Momoyo is one character that I truly liked from beginning to end. She stays true to herself and helps to salvage this anime. The protagonist, however, having been the focal point of the anime is one that is bland and pretty over used. He is pretty useless in comparison to the lovely ladies that surround him and is a complete pervert. His development is THE reason I rated character so lowly. I can't say too much without spoiling anything, so I'll just say the one thing he's supposed to be good at is completely forgotten as the anime progresses.
Between the pretty art and animation and the irritating characters, that one badass character and irritatingly boring filler this anime is at times enjoyable and at other times made me want to tear my face off.
While I haven't read the VN, I definitely bore witness to this tragically awful anime. The fan service is just distracting at times and the lack of ANY plot or character development really dug this anime a deep hole. The redeeming factors are its art, animation and ability to have at least one not irritating character. read more

Nevertheless, like most of there type, the anime itself focus on the fighting genre and romance which I have never seen since 2005. As most of the fighting genre anime almost found in Shoenen only or gory like Baki the Anime, this anime is the only fighting genre might actually combine with romance and ecchi elements.
So overall, I give the artwork 9/10 as I like the way the art was drawn. Hopefully that the anime really dosen't let us down.

Story: Like many people have said, it doesnt have a "story" per se (at least not yet since theres only 2 episodes). However if you are into the kind of shows that have a lot of ecchi action fights and girls who all adore 1 guy then this show is perfect for you.
Personally I am more into the harem aspect of the show, the action is just a bonus for me.
Art: Looks very nice. Very bright, and vibrant.
Sound: The OP is really good. I tend to skip OP but due to the fact that Ageha is in it, and that each girl is shown with their trademark abilities/weapons it just draws me in even more. Can't seem to remember the Ending though since I tend to just go to the next episode unless it's the ending of Fairy Tail (The one where Gray is walking alone, that song fits the animation so well)
Character: The characters are the usual bunch. Super Strong leader/object of guys affection but doesnt feel the same way about him, foreign german girl who is not used to the customs of Japan, spunky/cute/optimistic one, Psychotic/obsessed/loves the main guy like no other, shy/flustered/good cook chick.
This actually reminds me A LOT of Infinite Stratos now that I think about it.
Enjoyment: Very enjoyable. I understand how people can either LOVE IT or hate it but I for one am not one of those nitpicky people that dissect shows and analyze every aspect of it.
Give me a good story, with good art, cute girls and some romance. Thats all I ask for. read more

The impressions I got from the first 3 episodes are hard to put into words, since I was truly left with mixed feelings. Yes, it is an Eroge adaptation. Yes, it looks generic. But I just LOVE it. It's funny. It's enjoyable.
In additional, I'm a big fan of Itou Shizuka's (Hinagiku Katsura, Haruka Morishima) voice. And Christiane Friedrich (or Chris for short) seems like a character of perfect fit for her. Just your same, awesome Hinagiku, only with a thing for Justince(!!) and a noble bloodline.
If you'll have the hots for Chris, I recommend you play her route in the Visual Novel. You won't be left disappointed. She's all innocent, sexy, just, strong, weak, ridiculous, and funny.
I'd give the series a 10, but since we're just 3 episodes in, I'll stay on the safe side and settle for a 9. read more

After reading the manga I had high expectations from this series, let's just say It was a major let down. I don't want to turn this review into a rant so I'll keep it short.
Maji de Watashi's manga had a great cast of characters and enjoyable fight scenes. However with the anime, the producers seems to just replace the fight scenes with nudity and fan service, actually the whole anime was based of fan service. What was an enjoyable manga turned into a typical "Harem"
Over all 2/10 A dreadful letdown and disappointment to those who've read the manga.
If the people who didn't read the manga, you may enjoy this anime, but don't take my word for it - you might finish this anime as disappointed as I am. read more

I think the first impression of audience is the most important in anime storyline. For my first impression. I was Shocked, the anime started with no clues but more to action and then the development of the story is quite slow.The story has a few flashback,but I think the flashback does not even make me sense anything.(Shocked again).Recently, I just discovered the main hero and heroin on the 2nd episode.(Shocked again)
The arts ,umm I can only give this anime for 7/10 . I recently watch other anime which is more quality than this one. You can see it by yourself.
P/S: Ro-Kyu-Bu has better quality.
Too many character.Sometime I quite confused,who is this and who is that. As the anime is harem anime,no wonder 4 girls is in love with their own brother,which is in love with his older sister.(All of them are siblings..Hahaha)
I dont really enjoy this anime,but as the story is confusing me all the time.At least this anime has the harem,romance, and ecchi elements make it more enjoyable but not the storyline.
Its not to late or it maybe too early to judge the anime.I misjudge some other anime by first impression but the end,it was a succesful work.For now,my overall rating for the anime is 8.

The plot of this anime was really unexpected once you start to get in the mood of watching it. Personally, I think that there is more than 1 story in this anime, which is really frustrating. I do love the art, it is the same art for all characters which makes it a great projection. The sound is REALLY funny, and by that I mean, it has some parts in the episode with nudes, but the concept of the english voice is quite funny. Character's in here include one of the following: moe, tsundere, crazy, WTF, etc. Overall enjoyment of this anime is great, I really recommend for anyone to watch it.

Ok, so I've just finish this 12 episode anime, I must say that I generally describe this anime a chaotically crappy for something that is taken from an adult visual PC eroge novel. Ok so before the last 3 episodes I was able to forgive this anime's short comings co'z of the comedy and the ecchi (even though it's censored) things in it and there is this thing that I was hoping that the muchacho (Yamato) goes for Shiina, however things turned around with a corny ending. All the genres describe for this anime pertains not as a whole, but was divided each on a per episode basis that adds to the chaos, so for the story it is a "POOR" number 3.
Art: Mediocre number 5.
Co'z the art bears resemblance from another anime ""Kimiga Aruiji de Shitsuji Ga Ore De," where Kuki Ageha came from.
Sound: Good number 7.
Since I like both opening and ending themes and I also like the seiyus who did the voices of the female cast.
Character: Poor number 3.
Ok, let’s go to each of the main characters:
Naoe Yamato- his character has him being a muchacho who prefers brains over brawn; actually he uses 2 heads one on top where he does all his thinking, analyzing and planning and one below his belt where he reads porn on one hand and plays with it.............. I'll leave to your imagination. He's a bit of a letdown co'z everything about his character falls short of expectation, this is due to the fact that everything about his role is a dichotomy: examples are; he proposes his love for Momoyo in 1st episode but in another episode he makes gestures that he'll be willing to marry Momoyo's sister, Wanko, he has a vast collection of porn paraphernalia, let alone some of his winky flash to Kokoro and yet he’s very reluctant to bang Miyako, his bragging that he prefers brains to brawn yet he ends up being a damsel in distress and what irritates me is his ridiculous and stupid excuse of giving this anime a corny ending about his pet hermit crabs to his harem. Actually, my rating for this part falls on him.
As for his harem:
Friedrich Christiane - her character has her to be part of Naoe’s gang and class, she is a fencer by fighting standards. Since this anime has a harem genre in it, her role completes that of a rich tsundere with feelings for the muchacho (Naoe). The author of this anime seems to have limited her assistant Eberbach, Margit to a cameo role; she could have added something for this anime if she would have been made part of the main cast. Friedrich certainly adds certain class and finesse to the harem . By the way, I really hate the way she wore her uniform.
Kawakami Momoyo- she's the muchacho's love interest, she's one superb fighter and she's bisexual, it is now establish the she does love the muchacho. Since part of this anime's genre is super powers, it is safe to say that her character is that genre.
Kawakami “Wanko” Kazuko – By fighting standards she’s pike man co’z she armed with a naginata, she’s basically completes the harem genre as being wife material to the muchacho (Naoe) as well as an able competition from her elder sister, Momoyo.
Mayuzumi Yukie – Well, obviously she’s a samurai and part of the harem, she’s probably the only member of the muchacho’s harem who’s a bit weird co’z she has a dual personally which compose of; the shy and conservative Yukie and the opinionated and outspoken Matsukaze which is represented by his horse like cell phone strap thing. What makes it more wired is that one can’t determined whether or not if every cast knows about her condition or they just assumed that the horse like thing is has a mind of its own, if this anime has a psychological genre in it, she’ll fit right in.
Shiina Miyako- according to info, she was once bullied and was saved by the muchacho during their elementary days. Question, how was she able to become a skilled archer, in a span of just a few years? It is also implied that she’s not just any ordinary archer but she also has the same quick reflexes as all the members of the muchacho’s harem. Frankly she also adds to the muchacho’s dichotomy were it is implied that the muchacho may have a thing for her and yet he shoves her like some stray animal who wanders into his backyard. But one thing about her is that she contributes a lot to the comedy and ecchi genre of this anime.
And the rest of the muchacho’s gang:
Kazama Shiochi, Mooroka Takuya, Minamoto Tadakatsu and Gakuto Shimazu – well, it is kinda disappointing that the author has just limited the 4 to be support cast whereas
they have the potential to spice up the anime, however it is only Kazama Shiochi who is the true support cast among the four since he has more air time than the rest whom were just limited to cameo roles.
Kuki Ageha – I really don’t get as to why the author has to borrow her from another anime, when he/ she could have just come up with a new character.
Cookie – I don’t know what to make out of that character and so are the rest.
Enjoyment and overall: Poor number 3.
Ok, so as I’ve mentioned this anime is taken from a PC adult eroge visual novel, so it is a PC game, the enjoyment is only on the ecchi and comedy part of the anime which only extents up to the 8th episode and according to another review writer, the anime “Majikoi” didn’t follow the intended arc of the title in fact the title itself doesn’t fit well and I agree, if we’re to assigned this title to another anime I’d say that the title should fit right with “School Rumble,” as for the said animes title “School Rumble” I’d say that is more appropriate to be assigned to this anime since the setting always involves the students of Kawakami Academy.

Story is a 10. It's very unique and interesting. It's score as a visual novel is around 8. A really enjoyable visual novel. I was surprised the power it sucked me into MajiKoi's series and everything.
The supposed path in this anime is the True End. I'm gonna say what that means.
Art is 10. It looks exactly like the visual novel. The way I love it. Epic fighting scenes and character desgins.
Sound was worth a 9. The OP and ED was pretty good, along with the original sound track. Nothing special here, let's move on.
Character. 10! Each and every heroine was fabulous. Yukie, Momoyo, Wanko, Shiina and Chris were all very beautiful and each had very awesome seperate stories behind them. Ones cannot say they don't like atleast one of them. teehee
I really enjoyed this anime because the fighting scenes were just stunning. Everything about this series is above excellent. Though some people might dislike this anime due to its lack of detailed adaption. It satisfied me. 6 Hours spend watching this was damn worth it. #teamtsubame read more

The synopsis really doesn't tell you anything about the story. It may be the synopsis for the visual novel or the manga, but it didn't prepare me for the anime at all. The first episode is a jumble of comedy and action, but then it goes into slice of life character driven moments that are filled with dirty jokes and lots of fun starting in episode two. A story is thrown in there and is wrapped up at the end, but it's a mediocre story at best. It's all about the characters, and it's all about their relationships with each other.
The main male character was the weakest fighter, and the girls have all the brawn. He's the Bosley and the five main girls are his Charlies Angels. They take all sorts of odd jobs for various reasons through the school, and it's a crazy ride to follow. I don't know if I would want to go to a school like that, but it was interesting to see their daily life if even just a little.
The comedy is great in this series. Forget sexual innuendos, we're talking sex jokes and plenty of them. They don't shy away from making constant bold statements. Frankly, it was refreshing and I laughed pretty frequently. It really is a fun series to watch and I highly recommend it. It has good artwork, good music, and it's filled with all sorts of fun. Definitely worth checking out. read more

I'm going to discuss Type B first because that's probably the main audience for this anime.
Type B anime watchers are people who enjoy having loads upon loads of characters, flashy action, costumes, lightsabers transforming robots, service, etc. without needing much reason for it to be present. In short, they don't care, as long as they have as much shit stuffed on the screen as possible, they'll eat it.
If you fit within that category this anime is for you. I'm not going to try and explain any further because you probably abandoned any sense of reason a long time ago anyway.
Now for the Type A watchers who place story and development over flashy gimmick, in short, my fellow brothers.
From the start of this anime I knew there was a problem... sub par art and the feeling that nothing was making sense from the very beginning. This was a rip off fusion of the concepts of Baka no Test and Dog Days. No improvement on the material, they manage to fuck it all up from the first episode.
First of all there is no clear power gap between Classes S and Classes F. What happened to the classes in the middle? Does the S Class even exist? They seem to be equals, Class F seems to be stronger even, maybe it's because S if further back in the alphabet than F is, I do not know and I do not care.
There is also some romance plot shoehorned in with characters we have never seen before but are forced to show some sympathy when shown out of nowhere flashbacks that has nothing to do with what was happening at the time. If that's not bad enough, I have a reason to believe there was incest involved to some level. What the fuck does this do to progress the PLOT (word of the fucking day)? I hope they explain it in later episodes if they haven't managed to lose me by then.
What peeves me off is that near the end there is a fight and the participants shout names of their special attacks every time they use them. It was pointless and was trying too hard every time they did it. It's alright and when used at the right moment, really cool to yell the name of your finisher move when you do it, just don't shout it for every freaking move that you just pulled out of your ass on the spot.
This was the first thing that I noticed that let me know this was going to suck. The budget of this anime suddenly became clear and with what came after I began to realize that I had made a mistake somewhere in my life that led into me watching this anime. I look a sigh of disappointment as the cheap animation continued, with latest technology sincere art through anime is possible... They didn't even try. I have seen hentai with better animation than what they have in this anime.
This is always a hard category in a review. This anime makes it harder. What hell do you want me to say? If I was asked I wouldn't even remember if there was even a soundtrack or BGM worth noting. No memorable score, but I have to give it to that robot Cookie. It's voice was kinda cute.
Speaking of voices, they have lots of high class seiiyu in this anime. However that does improve anything, it actually worsens it. Sugita Tomozaku could have been doing something worth a shit with his time. Oh well I guess he gotta eat too. I hope he gets paid lots.
Too many. I am confused, I can't remember any names. We don't learn about any of their pasts, what their dreams are, why they fight. Sure that might follow in later episodes but its unacceptable presenting this crap as the first episode.
Pointless filler characters everywhere trying to desperately out categorize TVTropes, when will it end.?! It's retarded, it's as if they're trying to piss me off on purpose. Mission accomplished dickheads.
They don't even try with the character designs. All the clothing is bland, hair is unoriginal, Kyon is bald, and their personalities are a complete mystery or just the same crap you've seen a hundred times before.
That red haired eye patch chick, I've seen her in some hentai before... No really, I mean it. I'm more sure of it than the other characters.
This was a big waste of time. I stared agonizingly at the run time of this video, groaning every time I checked the progress to see that only thirty seconds had elapsed since I last checked...
It's too late for me. I've already started this anime and I can't drop it now... I have to endure cause I can't let this shit beat me.
But it's not to late for you, fellow Type A viewers. Spare yourself the pain and watch something that actually has something to offer. There is nothing for you here, NOTHING, and there probably won't ever be.
"It might get better as it goes along."
This review was not helpful for your ass. Screw me like this anime did. read more
