The human race extended its life field and greed to the vast reaches of space... In Space Era 0156, a war breaks out amidst all of the colonies in space. Earth begins to construct a new space battleship called Tiramisu in secret. Just as the war begins, one genius pilot steers the Tiramisu as a beacon of hope for humanity.
Tiramisù begins as a rather aimless compilation of comedic skits that range from pretty damn hilarious to mildly chuckle-inducing; it ends pretty much the same way. The disappointing part is that somewhere in the middle they toyed around with introducing something reminiscent of an actual plot.I was genuinely interested to see what the show had to offer following the mid-season story developments. Unfortunately, the crew never quite figured out what to do with it.
Uchuu Senkan Tiramisù isn’t bad as is, provided you like the crude, dumb type of humor. For better or worse, it never lets itself get too serious. I just can’t shake the
feeling, though, that it could have been so much better.
When you first hear of Uchuu Senkan, what series springs into mind...Yamato, right? I mean, the series has countless sequels, movies and the like! But what if I told you there's ANOTHER Uchuu Senkan, and it's this one heck of a derivative? You might be thinking: "It's another cash cow, not gonna watch it, one of the worst anime of the season...and such!" Strap in your individual seat, and get ready to fight in an alternate Space Era!
The year is Space Era 0156, when all humanity has extended it's life from the Earth and also now resides in space...where a war breaks out in typical
fashion. Enter Uchuu Senkan Tiramisu, the one space battleship called forth to defend the human race, and it's genius yet salty pilot, Subaru Ichinose, who's leading the charge in his Durandal mech to be the new ray of hope for humanity...but not without some OCD treatments first!
First of all, this is a short of 7 mins, so if you want to enjoy this short series, don't take everything seriously! Because Subaru the MVP will knock you out of your senses as he tries to do things his way...from eating in the cockpit to caring about his pubic hair, anything goes the mile ahead for our saviour of a pilot!
The VAs for the characters was splendid, the icing on the cake, from the staff at Tiramisu to his own brother Isuzu, who has retaliated from Tiramisu to be his own entity, fighting against his own brother, making the comedy look more rounded and subtle. Not to mention the gags are funny, and don't expect a story here also, because that's not what you are here for, right?
Gonzo's sprinkles on the art and animation is good, and it's very clear that they do this out of context and fills in the gap with outrageous but clever tactics that resonate with the characters and the settings, and it's just so good.
The music may be minimal, but helmed by Subaru's VA (Kaito Ishikawa) for OP and ED, it's very true to the overall substance of the show, and while short, it's nothing short of good.
Of all the shorts you could have this season, this is one of the good ones, so try it out, it will freak you out of your senses and engage your funny bones.
I was sent this anime randomly today. I expected some boring crap that took itself far too seriously. I was very bored and just wanted something to watch. Anything would do.
BAM!! This was sent to me and boy do I not regret binging on this and ignoring all of the other responsibilities that I need to do right now.
This anime had me legit CRYING and screaming because I am an emotionally unstable drama queen. I felt so well represented by these beautiful characters.
Story: 8 The stories are episodic and make no sense whatsoever and I LOVED them.
Art: I am
a sucker for the art style they chose. It is reminiscent of Space Dandy and anything that has to do with space is automatically gorgeous to me.
Sound 9: I don't mind the music. Its okay I guess I just LOVE the voice acting. I was watching the dub and a lot of times dubs don't embody the characters well but this one definitely did!
Character 10: I am vain and love that I am thoroughly represented by these mentally unstable characters. I spent the majority of time screaming ME! SAME! and THAT IS SO ME! Subaru is crazy and his brother is a diva. Vulgar is the stereotypical jock but I love him so much. I love all of the characters.
Enjoyment 10: I enjoyed this anime a little too much
Overall: 10 This anime speaks to me in volumes. If you are tired of mecha animes that take themselves faaaar too seriously with emo protagonist that drone on and on in self-important monologues then try this out. You won't regret it. This anime is a breath of fresh air.
I was never big into mobile suits, but didn't quite understand why. Upon watching Uchuu Senkan Tiramisu, I found the answer. They lack in aesthetics. Our main character decorated his with pink, heart-shaped goods and fluffy animals. For the first time ever, I have met a person who truly values his mecha and has made it personal. A real human beem. "This is my cockpit, there are many like it, but this one is mine." This is basically Forest Gump the anime. I can identify with.
Uchuu Senkan Tiramisu is an interesting comedy series which brings quite a few witty remarks and original topics on the
table. These focus around such things as flaws and the generic nature of space operas and mecha anime. Parodying things like G-powers and the challenges of actually eating and drinking in zero gravity. The comedy is definitely well-thought and remind me of 'Thermae Romae', the world famous, award-winning manga series which also had similarly obscure ideas about bath houses. This time they are of course about space.
The episodes are only 7 minutes long. One can tell based to episode 1 if they will like this series or not, so I recommend anyone who is even mildly interested to give this a go.
In these opening weeks of the Spring 2018 anime season, Steins;Gate 0 starts off as the by far highest rated anime, although Megalo Box is the new heavy hitter if we look past sequels. This and more in the opening edition of The Seasonal Quarterly.
