This series, I HAVE TO DECLARE: I stuck with it to write a review, and so I will write a shortcut way to watch this show at the bottom of this review. Some episodes in the middle were a bit unnecessary.

[Mood: light-medium, dull]
[Notable pickings: Magic: 7 l Comedy: 4 l Romance: 3 l Action: 4 l School life: 8 ]

Story:6
Hmm the story eh? Ep 1- 2 were sort of intros, 3-7 were more of character-based, and ep8-12 were with a plot.

The storytelling method is really really dull at times. I especially only appreciated about 30% of the content in eps 3-7 on read more

Story: 9

I really liked the whole idea that there is a school that is seperated into two devisions, magic and non magical. A lot of mysterieous events happen that are unexpected and there are twists and turns. While some things are quite obvious what the awnsers are, there are things that are less so.

Art: 10

The artwork is extremely detailed, expessully the costumes of the magic users. This detail helps to give each character their personality.

Sound: 8

There were way too many explouding noises and odd noises that weren't so much needed. There was also nothing that stood out to me.

Character: 10

The cast has a wide range read more

Since no criticisms of this show are going to be very interesting or entertaining, let’s start with some storytime. I first saw Happiness back when I was still finding out the whole identity of the anime medium, and that intrigue carried the show for me. I immediately saw it as weak, but a few more shows would enlighten me as to just how weak it was. Soon I recognized it as the worst show I’d completed, and many years later it remains at the bottom of the barrel.

Happiness is about an teenager with supernatural powers named Haruhi (not that one) who goes to a magic read more

There are plenty of series where I've been unimpressed by the first few episodes, but grown to enjoy or totally love the result. It can be all about the writers hitting their stride, learning the characters, finding the new twists on old ideas that will surprise you, and somewhere in the middle there'll be a beach trip.

This is not one of those series. This is the complete opposite.

The writers actually started with a decent enough twist on the "magic high school" trope, and the first few episodes are "good enough" to make you want to see where it goes.

IT GOES NOWHERE! Instead, the writing spirals read more
