In concert with my review for the actually A-Channel series, I decided to look up and watch the +A-Channel shorts. My ratings stay the same as the series for the reasons of consistency. You can't horribly rate an omake because it is an omake. It's like trying to study for a test with the textbook; it's ridiculous. I will say this, yes these are a series of shorts. These episodes are the little "bonus" for those devoted A-Channel fans who bought the BR or DVD of the series. Personally, I did enjoyed them because they made me laugh. It's all the same material from the actual series, just a little extra for those A-Channel fans who wanted more. I really don't regret watching watching any of these shorts. Maybe it's because I'm biased toward slice-of-life anime genres.
Simply put, if you the enjoy slice-of-life and enjoyed A-Channel then you should go ahead and watch +A-Channel, they're pretty funny! If you despise this genre, why are you even looking at this bonus in the first place?read more
Consisting of a series of shorts, these specials are like they cut an episode into smaller pieces and served them separately. It doesn't make an effort to do anything different at all from the original series. It's basically the same thing. Very predictable and like the series it wasn't really all that funny at some times. I kind of regret going out of my way to watch it. I could have ignored it and my day wouldn't have been any different.
Even so, I manged to crack a few smiles. And there are some choice pieces to enjoy.
My rating? meh... 5. Don't bother calling it "special" it's exactly the same stuff you get in the series, if you paid money for the DVD to watch it, well... it's your money dude. Call this an "extra" or something...
Don't watch this if you don't have to. Not worth the time really.read more
There isn't really much I can say about these cute little extras, but I did enjoy that they all seemed to be taken from the strips in the manga that weren't in the normal episodes, like Nagi talking to a story display when she took her glasses off or when Tooru and Run made character bentos for Yuuko and Nagi, these little shorts are a cute little add-on to the normal A Channel series and I'd recommend watching them if you want more A Channel or if you wanted to see more of the manga strips made into anime ^^
It's pretty much the same as A-channel except it starts at them moving up a grade instead of one getting into high school. There is nothing wrong with this anime, it's funny just not the kind of anime I enjoy so I dropped it after the first episode but I encourage those who haven't seen it or want to see it to watch it. Overall: 6
