I think people don't understand how great the Pretty Series are. Especially how fabulous King of Prism is.
This movie is just a mix of crazy, ridiculous, gay, and shining epicness. Yes. It is like a mix of JJBA's crazyness and Naruto x Sasuke's gayness.
The story itself isn't super good. It's rushed, lukewarm (as Ito says) and might be dull if you didn't watched Pretty Rhythm Rainbow Live. But actually, it is deeper than just "guys dancing on ice". Just like Rainbow Live, King of Prism story's is more complicated than it seems. It's talking about friendship, rivalry, duty, family issues, medias,... They just couldn't develop
everything in the movie (maybe the couldn't afford a longer movie), so they just put the most important elements. It's really subtle, so you have to rewatch the movie a few times before knowing everything.
But isn't that great ? You discover the movie everytime you watch it again. Another great point.
The characters can be an unappealing point too. We have 7 main characters from Edel Rose that we don't really know. They're just archetypes here to please everyone. It might be very confusing all those names. And here, I just talked about the 'main 7'. There are more characters actually. Some of them were from Rainbow Live so I know their story, it's surely confusing for a new watcher.
I also understand how the yaoi fanservice shit isn't appealing. I don't like this either, it makes me super uncomfortable usually, but HERE. It's just so ridiculous.
Like HOW is it possible not to laugh when you see two half-naked men fighting eachothers, knowing one is FIGHTING WITH HIS ABS.
Alec was litteraly bombarding the crowd with his abs and created a tornado just by dancing.
Louis was embracing the whole planet.
Hiro became all dictator and played billard with the solar system.
Kazuki was surfing with a sword coming from the sky.
Prism Shows are just perfect. It makess me forget any negative point of the show. The 3DCG is fantastic, it's one of the best I've ever seen I think. I love their musics even though the lyrics don't mean anything.
I think if you take time, you'll see how funny King of Prism is. And maybe after that, you'll finally see the light. Every second of this movie is pure gold.
I can honestly not tell if this anime is for real or if it's a parody.
I did laugh my ass off watching it. And I thought the first one was funny.
The animation is bad, the CG is horrible, its packed full of cheesy fanservice and stuff that makes absolutely no sense even with context, which made me laugh from the beginning (that has a stupidly fanservice- packed title card) until the very end.
It's so bad that I love it (very ironically), even more so than the first one! Though now I am more confused than when watching the
1st one about wether or not it's a parody, hmm..
I recommend it to anyone that just wanna have a laugh about how over the top japan can get with it's boy love fanservice.
