I would suggest you stay away from this garbage. it's not a great thing to watch, as this is not really a decent show. yet it's still airing.
I don't even get why it's on anime sites, it's not even fully japanese.
don't even try watching this, it's awful.
first off, the art style. the cgi is annoying and way too colorful. if you wamt some real anime that isn't colorful, go watch something like another.
second off, the story is the same thing each episode. it's annoying.
third off, the sound. the soundtrack is even more annoying. pac this world by hyadain was
repetitive and so was the original english theme. the ost sounds like it was written by a five year old.
fourth off, the characters, the most annoying thing of the series. the characters act the same each episode, and it's super annoying. pac-man's supposed to be an adult, not a teen, and why are the ghosts his friends? just, avoid this piece of garbage.
fifth off, this is a really unenjoyable show.
sixth off, it overall, makes soul eater not look like a total maserpiece. like for real.
well, that's the end of my review, suggesting that you avoid this endless garbage.
This is not a good show. Not even a decent one. Instead of staying faithful to the source material, like other video game adaptions such as Mario and Sonic did, they went in a completely new direction and ripped off several shows in the process.
This is a prequel to the Pac-Man games, revolving around Pac-Man's teenager days instead of his usual adult self. The story is pretty much like Ben 10, but with ghosts. Pac-Man eats pellets with different super powers, but he never bothers to learn what each of them do. An evil ghost sends out other ghosts to get him, but fails
every time. Pac-Man doesn't even need to take a power pill before eating ghosts, he can just eat them whenever he wants with no penality.
The characters are all stereotypical as well. Pac-Man acts like a teenager with an attitude (e.g. annoying), and he has a "smart" female Pac-friend for girl power reasons. And, of course, your usual sports jock shaped as a... bean? They also have a dog named "Packster" for comic relief. Then his ghostly friends... A stupid red ghost, a pink ghost in love with him. And, of course, there's a stereotypical bad guy who keeps sending ghosts after Pac-Man and his friends.
The music, however, is pretty good. It has a very "movie-esque" feel, with orchestrated themes and remixes of old music tracks from the earlier games. The English intro is one of the worst I've ever heard, with off-key singing and a slow-paced techno theme. But the Japanese version was amazing and really gets you pumped up for a very mediocre show!
The CG animation is also pretty good. The characters are full of facial expressions, they move around a lot and the frame rate is very smooth. However, the backgrounds are rather bland, as everything looks circular and like it was made out of plastic. Same goes for the props. Not many details either, as the town is pretty empty.
It's pretty much like a bad saturday morning cartoon from the 70's. Predictable plot, horrible bathroom jokes + unfunny word play, and a cast with mostly bland characters you've seen everywhere else. There is probably some enjoyment out of this for kids, but older people will hardly find anything to enjoy. There's not even any innuendo...
