Sakamaki Izayoi is a 17-year-old boy who is bored with life in the ordinary world because he has a tremendous supernatural power. One day, he is invited to an external world called "Miniature Garden" by a girl known as Black Rabbit. She summons two more girls, who also have almighty psychic powers. She says the Deamon King deprived her community of the territory and asks the three "mondaiji (problem children)" to help rebuild the community. Izayoi makes an unexpected reply: "Let's defeat the Deamon King!" Now the three montaiji participate in the "Gift Game" battles against devils, gods, and monsters in the fantasy world.
OrochiPL said: I'll disregard another longass name of ln, still no clue why LN authors do it. Premise could be fun if executed in a good way.
They explained it not too long ago. I forget just how they worded it, but it was something like; with the large number of LNs one sees while browsing, they make long titles to give the browser a quick rundown of what its about. Otherwise, theres nothing else to make the browser pick up that one out of all the others/they're hoping to make it stand out/garner more interest on a quick look.
Cute designs, definitely. But like some others have mentioned, I have to see how much of a harem anime this is. I've found that I like less and less and less of the "normal high school boy gets powers and a harem and it's sort of an action/romance/comedy anime" shows lately. Thankfully most shows aren't like that, so even if I dropped all of them I'd still have plenty of anime to watch.
There are still some gems, like Dog Days (a show others brought up) which is goddamned fantastic. Maybe because it really downplays the multi-party angle, and while a lot of the girls throw attention at Cinque, their feelings for him are not their defining character traits and not their main purpose in the story. It also helps immensely that I find Cinque really likeable.
I find that when it comes to "multiple romantic options" anime, what separates shows I love from shows I hate is hard to put into words. But the above comments about why I like DD are probably close to what I'm feeling. If we've got to have a male protagonist, I want him to be reasonably competent and likable, and I want him to be able to interact with the girls as people, not as "this week's source of irrelevant fanservice cliches". (Which in no way means I'm against fanservice - I just want good fanservice of characters I care about.)
Designs are pretty cute, synopsis could go either way, but still felt like mediocre materials.
In the end, this will be determined with quality of the MC and the girls, and the amount of stupidity in plot+development. Good, healthy fanservice should be OK as long it's reasonable and not overblown.
Ehhh... The synopsis interested me, but when I saw the character designs all I could think of was "ecchi moe harem". I guess I'll have to wait for a PV or the first episode to determine whether it's watchable for me or not.
What "Adolescence" do you have?
Do you remember "Childhood"?
The irreplaceable one existed there.
Not gonna lie, but that synopsis sounded like every shounen/harem cliche mashed into one big random disaster. I was still slightly interested until i saw the website.
I'll check it out when it airs, but i doubt i'll be very interested.
