“I spend every day eating pudding, watching TV, and playing online games.” – Ryuugajou, Nanana
I thought of Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin another colorful spring 2014 anime. With the characters’ having vibrant colored eyes, I thought this was something that stood out the most in a character’s appearance for me.
This anime tells of a story about Nanana Ryuugajou, who was murdered 10 years before the actual setting of the story. She’s a ghost, living as a NEET, bounded to the room Juugo Yama was given to by Shiki Maporo (the landlady of Happy House – the apartment complex).
Juugo moves into the room Nanana is bounded to and learns about Nanana’s Collection, also known as Ryuugajou Nanana’s Buried Treasure (hence the title). They are – “treasures of origins unknown”. The ones with unique powers are known as Nanana’s Collection itself. Juugo soon joins the Adventure Club, where the members are solely looking for the treasures. This is where the plot starts to set in. Juugo and his group of friends will try and find Nanana’s Collection. With the treasures being set in different locations, along with different setups, they would need a little bit of thinking along the way. But that’s what makes the series interesting, as you try to figure out the setup with the characters. At least, that’s what I tried doing anyway. Haha.
As I said at the beginning of this review, I thought the character’s eyes are what stood out the most to me when looking at their appearance. The art in Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin is what made finding Nanana’s buried treasure and other situations have a cool, beautiful, detailed setting to it. The backgrounds in the show are casual; some you would see in almost any school/daily life of a 16-year-old type set anime. But when you get to the setup of Nanana’s treasure, it’s awe-inspiring. All of the character designs are kind of like the newer, maybe 2013-2014 art – to me they were also beautifully made; with different colors also made to match their outfits: which add in the anime, being well set in color variety. The series also includes some fan service.
With how this anime is centered with finding treasure and solving how each setup of the treasure goes, I’d have to say that the OP had that little detective feel into it, for me. The ED, for me, had that gentle feeling of how Nanana is enjoying her ghostly life, despite any situation. Of course, this is while watching the 1 minute and 30 second ending. The background music/sounds were good in terms of setting the mood/scene in each episode.
The characters in the anime are likeable. They are what make this show pretty enjoyable. With Nanana, being the teenage ghost bounded to the room Juugo rented out; Juugo being the one to learn and find out more about Nanana’s Collection, leading to more discoveries to the treasures; Tensai being the master detective and Daruku alongside her; and having other characters just add up to the series as Juugo and them continue to find more treasures. They all added to the story very well, in my opinion. It’s just that there were some problems, in the beginning, in my mind deciding whether or not this character or that character were on the good, bad, or neutral side of the story. Other than that, I thought the characters were pretty well developed.
Overall, even though I was behind on episodes while this show was airing, I enjoyed Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin – with its treasure hunting, solving the treasures setups, helping each other in times of need, the bits of comedy between characters, and the friendship/bonds between the characters. Though the show was only 11 episodes long, I did wish it would have been longer. It did give a feel as if it was just a bit rushed, but even so, it’s still pretty good to watch.
"Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin" is a story about a ghost girl, named Nanana Ryuugajou. She was killed in her apartment room 10 years ago, when she was still a teenager.
Unable to move on from her own death, Nanana is stuck living in that apartment room, only able to eat pudding and play video games, until she kills her murderer.
Story : 9
The story is one of the strongest points in this anime. It has many plot twists, it has hints of romance, it has so much of everything. Because it's a little bit short, missing just a minute of the episode could be fatal for the story enjoyment
Overall the story is pretty original and balanced for today's viewers.
The art and animation are some things you should definetly like. It's simple, but not too simple.
The puzzle scenes inside the anime look definetly amazing, but it's not overdone.
For my personal opinion I liked both the opening and the ending, but the ending a little bit more.
As for the background music, I think it really set the tone on dramatic scenes, as well as on funny scenes. The music for every other scene mostly is cheerful and heart-warming like this show is.
This is where the anime came up a bit short. The main characters remained mysterious for me until the end. The main protagonist was pictured as good, then bad and then again as good. It missed history "from back then" and that's where it came short.
Enjoyment : 9
I enjoyed the show very much, even though it was pretty hard to follow the story at times, I was happy to be watching this show and not something else.
Overall : 8
The show overall was interesting, mysterious, at times funny, at times sad. Many questions still remained unanswered and I hope there will be some continuation for the show.
But if being straightforward, it was a very good show and I would recommend everyone to watch it.
