Tennomifune Academy is an elite institution for the best and the brightest, with the exception of Class 1-7, the so-called "Happiness Class." Each member of the classroom copes with personal misfortunes, and the special class is geared to help them move past their issues and find true happiness.
After being accepted into the academy, An Hanakoizumi, Ruri Hibarigaoka, and Botan Kumegawa find themselves placed into the Happiness Class, plagued by dreadful luck, love problems, and bad health respectively. Alongside their classmates, they do their best to overcome the difficulties they are faced with in pursuit of a life filled with joy.
It’s been quite a while since Gochiusa, Kiniro Mosaic and Yuru Yuri had aired. We’re quite grateful for Anne Happy, an unhappy anime but very silly, comedic and CGDCT to be adapted. This is one of the 8 SOL to be aired on Spring 2016. There is quite a lot of SOL airing this season.
Anne Happy to me is quite interesting to watch though there’s not much of people watching it. The core is much formulated, it can play off anime cliché as they use many frills moments to as the comedy theme, not by throwing it unnecessarily. Of course, it has a pretty standard set up of Slice Of Life genre such as the school setting and bunch of girls doing CGDCT. In addition, most of the plot points are prevailed every each next episode otherwise, continue where it left off.
In addition, Anne Happy adds comedic and gag scenes to keep the show entertaining and interesting as it helps to spies up the viewer’s perception. Anne Happy’s comedic contents are quick and snappy to understand, such as the use of manga panels to deliver the comedy at a quicker pace however the excessive use of it can be a bit hassle.
By far, the story plotline is not complicated or complex to watch.
Animation wise, is handled and produced by Silver Link, a great studio which made Non Non Biyori. The animation was pretty decent and manga iconography is used to express the characters feelings. The character design was what made me impressed the most, this is by far from my perspective the best character design I ever seen, not to argue I just seem to like the character design as well as their eye design. The use of color is not too saturated as colors are used lighter to suit the theme, heck even 1080p I can see the difference. I still wonder how they can handle two anime production at the same time, I've been noticing that since fall season. In short, though a lot of loading screens are used, the character designs and animation is done pretty well by Silver link.
I enjoyed the OP and the ED songs, as well as the OST. The voice actors for all the characters were pretty decent, I start to notice the VA who voiced Hibari, as she was voiced Kirie in Umaru chan, I was pretty stunned how amusing her voice be, even her singing skills are pretty damn good. An’s VA wasn't bad, some of her lines were pretty cute especially the “right” line. Botan’s VA on other hand, I get confused who voiced her, she kinda sound like Hayori. Hibiki’s VA is almost too similar to Sharo’s VA from Gochiusa. In short, silver link VA selection is pretty decent though, there aren't any big VA names.
Ohh btw, TIMOTHY RAP SONG IS THE BEST!
Talking about the characters, Hibari-chan stand out to me the most, I love the fact that she is very oblivious to not having any misfortune, despite she has one which is love misfortune nonetheless, she is one of the ordinary type of student without having any mishaps or bad luck occurring on her. Hibari has the mature type of attitude, whom she can concern anyone if they were in trouble especially An. An on the other hand, is a cute character who unfortunately suffer a lot of bad luck, feel pity on her. Botan on other hand, she is most likely used as character gag which make everyone laugh, she is quite prone to getting injuries even the smallest hit. Really not much to talk about the characters from Anne Happy.
TL;DR In conclusion, Anne Happy is a great anime to watch, even though the excessive moe content is used to much, the content of the story is still there unlike some other which only focuses on fan service and deviating out of the plot which why some people wonder what the story is all about, Anne happy is different. Animations is pretty decent and sounds aren't pretty bad. There is little structural view as Anne Happy only offer comedies to the viewers.
To sum it up, Anne Happy can be watched by anyone, but it would be recommended if you have a taste on SOLs, comedy and CGDCT. read more
The story only fits anime with a schoolgirl theme/setting. Any other anime, it wouldn't work. So basically, it's unoriginal.
The art was good for the most part. It's just the right amount of brightness, which is key to a schoolgirl/moe anime and the girls are cute. But the fact that the main characters are the only people with FACES is lazy. I mean, really?? They couldn't take the time to at least put faces on the other students in the class?? Unbelievable!
Awful and forgettable. I hated the opening and ending songs and the music they use in the episodes just sounds so simple and retarded.
This is 1 of the few anime I've seen in which I've hated ALL of the main characters and I've been watching anime for 5 years. You know an anime is bad when you hate the characters. Hibari is considered the main character, but we get little to no backstory on her! There are hints, but of course, they're too lazy to go into detail just like with the art. Also, her liking the construction sign is the stupidest thing I've ever heard in my life. They basically shove it in our face that Hanako is unlucky. Every episode, something bad happens to her. We get it: she's unlucky! You don't have to remind us every single damn episode! Botan was so annoying with her constant injuries, Hibiki is a HORRIBLE tsundere, and Ren is kind of like the female version of a bland shoujo male main character. That's the #1 problem with this anime: they gave each character 1 or 2 personality traits and made it a running gag in which they showed it in each episode. I get that they're unlucky, so that's the main reason why, but they should've figured that at some point, it's going to get repetitive, which will eventually make the anime boring and unejoyable to watch.
I got absolutely no enjoyment out of watching this anime.
Final score: 2/10
They did everything that you're NOT supposed to do in a schoolgirl/moe anime. Lazy art, annoying characters, and unenjoyable to watch. The story itself is pointless. The teacher gives them assignments to do so they can find happiness and if they fail, they get a punishment. The main characters always fail the assignments or end up in last place, but there's always a loophole, so the punishment doesn't end up being that bad. In that case, what's the point of teaching them happiness if she lets them off the hook all the time?? Don't watch this anime. It's bad. Period.read more
As I am new to making reviews, please be gentle (might be some spoilers XP)
Of course, their is another Moe anime in this season, but what caught my eye. The story and plot is which that caught my eye.
The story is about the five girls who go to school in a class called the Happy Class. This class for the people for the unlucky and the purpose of this class is to become, well happy. The story is different from what I have seen from the other SOL anime. The ending was also very satisfying :).
I felt the art was a good asset to this. Although, if you are bothered by chibi characters, well there is a lot of them here. I'm not that bothered by them but why did I grade the animation so high in this. Well the animation consists of bright colors in the most important scenes. I felt this animation was really pretty and I was glad to see sometimes that the characters looked different with different colors.
The openings to moe animes are usually upbeat or very cute. Now, this anime is different with a funky opening which gives me the feels of happiness. The ending is really good as well, the opening and ending fit this anime really well.
Now now, the characters did fit in the anime but I guess I wasn't really satisfied you could say... there is your average tsundere, kuudere, glasses, derdere and a weird person you could say. I did not hate them though, just a little disappointed you could say.
I really did enjoy this anime, seeing a different kind of style to anime is very cool and I think there should be more animes like this. Overall I give this a 7 but the anime is very good anyways.
This is a good anime if you're expecting a good kind of moe anime, so just give it a try :D
As the title implies, Anne Happy♪ is a bundle of happiness that can bring a smile to anyone.
The story was something that caught me by surprise since the summaries I read prior to the show's airing was pretty vague. In this case, the surprise was a good thing because I came to loving it. The show just gets wackier with each episode and that's what makes it great.
I believe the show wouldn't be what it is if it wasn't for the characters. This series would be considered what the anime community calls "moe blob", which basically means a show with the most adorable characters. Anne Happy is definitely one of those. Normally with this type of show, the characters don't get any major developments and usually stay within their specific personality. However, that's not much of an issue when it comes to these as you end up liking the character for who they are.
As I started watching, the first thing right away that caught my attention was the animation. Everything was consistent, from the movement to the character models, but what intrigued me was the look/style to it. There are lots of vibrant colors mixing together making it look like a cover of a coloring book. At one point, I began realizing that it looked similar to the series Baka and Test, which turns out to be the same director.
There obviously isn't anything to grand about Anne Happy, but what made me enjoy it was all the lovable characters, the beautiful aesthetic to it, and the over-the-top comedy that ensues. It was so lighthearted that I could not hate it.read more
