This short anime has made me love it and hate it at the same time.My poor lonely heart can only take so much cuteness and torment from all those couples' interactions...
What would you expect from a 2 minute anime?It's exactly as it sounds.Boyfriend and girlfriend interactions(at the aquarium,at home,while studying and boring stuff that I won't get to do myself anyway.And families interactions with a mother,father and daughter(Daddy stole his kids' favorite candy and another child tells his papa that she loves him).Simple enough of a stab to my decaying soul.
Art is nothing out of ordinary,pretty much like standard shoujo manga(Bokura ga Ita maybe?).Some of
the time I couldn't differentiate between the character.Most of the time there isn't a background either.
The only music in this is the opening ''Ame no Parade'' and the couples that are in it don't even show up in the anime.It also fits the first better the first episode's theme.Makes me wonder why there's even an opening in such a short anime.
Are couples always this peaceful,sweet,lovely and compassionate together?I feel jelly for their happiness.
Bittersweet.What can I say?
Do you single otakus want to feel pain and happiness simultanously?Or just want to something heartwarming?Then go on my friend,the path is clear.You will only need to contribute 20 minutes of your life
If you're looking for a fast anime to watch then this is for you. The episodes are very short but I grew easily attached to the characters. You can easily relate to the situations in each episode, especially if you are in a relationship. It covers cute and sad events when it comes to love. After watching this anime, I really wanted to get my drawing pad. The artwork is simple yet beautiful. I personally like the style but to others it may be too simple. This is the kind of anime I would rewatch if I'm ever bored or want a sprinkle of romance.
This anime is a bunch of illustrated skits of couples that is really short and would basically waste your time, if you aren't interested in couples and their daily lives. These animated flicks are a real box filled with kittens sent right in front of your doorstep without any note, and unless you don't like surprises or you don't like responsibility over those new tiny liter of kittens, then you won't enjoy this anime.
There is nothing special about this anime, no plot, no character, the art is fine, no fanservice and basically no bullshit, it literally is just some animated flicks of couples goofing around
and going about their daily lives and their little "cute conflicts". I find it really really heartwarming for some reason, along the lines of "I am so happy for them".
This is an anime you'll definitely waste your time to, unless you're someone like me who enjoys romance and happy endings. And yes, if you're that kind of person who wants to be in a relationship so badly or want to have this kind of relationship with their loved ones, then watching this anime somehow will make you feel jealous because people in a relationship knows that this isn't what happens all the time.
I do enjoy these short animated skits of couples, they make me feel all good inside. And I think it'd be best to just watch them one by one, rushing them altogether will give you a bad experience since you won't be given any plot, and thus will make you feel like you just wasted your time after all.
In more words or less, Honobono Log is a short animated series about couples goofing around.
Need to waste a minute or two? Watch an episode!
Need to feel good inside or bittersweet perhaps? Watch an episode!
Need an anime without any plot and just good stuff for the characters? Watch an Episode!
Need a real anime to watch where there's a real story about couples? DONT WASTE YOUR TIME WATCHING AN EPISODE.
Simply put, this show is short but sweet. There's not much story as it's just short clips from different couples lives.
They can be cute, sweet, sad or touching with a different feel to each one. Although they're less than 2mins, it'll probably manage to leave you feeling something. What I love is the characters feel very realistic to real people, rather than your typical anime character. The situations are something's that can happen in real life and I felt like I was watching behind the scenes of real life Japanese relationships at some of the best of moments. This makes it relatable for some.. or
probably for most people - feel envious of the romance and crave to find that special someone so they can experience these special moments in love.
The art is very simple, it's just sketch style, with simple movements and very empty backgrounds. The characters are designed very simply and look more towards real people rather than the anime style, but I like it.
When it comes to sound they only use one them song to soundtrack the whole series a soft tone and relaxing song with cute lyrics and it set the scene well for the anime.
Overall I felt it fell a bit flat, since everything about it seemed quite budget and felt it had alot more potential to be something great. But it was still quirky in it's own way despite this. I enjoyed watching it in the sense it was certainly a nice escape from shoujo anime and just straight into those romantic moments you're just dying to see. So it was a good chance to get my dose of romance I'm always wanting to watch.
I would recommend this to those hopeless romantics, you will be able to appreciate this anime the most!
