Characters & Voice Actors
Kantoku Fuyuki Todoki ( Insufficient Director) is an anime based of a manga by Moyoco Anno the wife of acclaimed director Hideki Anno. It is told through two characters based on their real selves, Director-kun and Rompers.
The series is told through the eyes of Rompers and focuses around the experiences of marrying an otaku. Like your standard slice of life there is not a concrete plot and it consists of gags. This fits the 3 minute a episode flash format well, allowing for a quick watch designed to be light hearted while providing a entertaining incite into their daily lives. The only issues I have with it was the lack of comedic high points and it's initial just otaku based humor. The humor is mostly just light humor and wont generate any deeply memorable lines.
Being a comedic flash animation it's not very noteworthy, being there to accompany the series humor. The character designs are reminiscent of a 2channel flash or something you would see on a good Newgrounds animation but with more variety and a slight increase in complexity.
Like the animation the sound is there to accompany the series.The sounds track consists of just little tunes, like something you would here on a kids TV show to accompany the dialog.
The characters are the high point of the series. Being a representation of the Anno's, you really get to know them, or at least their exaggerated selves, and feel apart of the experience. The very peak of this high point lies in the voice actors, especially Director-kun's. You get a near accurate portrayal of what you would think a slightly psychotic otaku would sound like, with the outbursts yells, and all. Rompers voice actor also fits well with her cutesy yet rough voice and later appending anger at her husband.
Overall enjoyment: 7
While there are not many negative points with this series I award it with a seven. Like I said previously this is a light series. A way to describe it is it's like a cup of herbal tea. It warms you up and gives you a taste of what's inside but does not provide the energy of a green or black tea. Think of it like a milder Hetalia or a shortened Azumanga Daioh. It is entertaining and a great way to pass the time without the weight of a full fledged comedy series, making you want more.
Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed my first review.
Both are comedy anime with short episodes and simple, flash animation. MC is lazy and kinda useless, the difference is that one MC is otaku while the other one is yolk.
