A group of 3 yakuza failed their boss for the last time. After messing up an important job, the boss gave them 2 choices: honorably commit suicide, or go to Thailand to get a sex reassignment surgery in order to become "female" idols. After a gruesome year training to become idols, they successfully debut, with overwhelming popularity, much to their dismay. This is where their tragedy truly begins.
Whilst I have not watched much of this anime I have read the manga, this is not one of those reviews claiming that the manga is better however the anime is a huge disappointment.
The main problem with this anime is the distinct lack of animation. It almost seems like someone has scanned the manga into a computer, coloured it, added voice flaps and then released it as an anime. If I wanted to watch still shots of art with some plot sprinkled in I would have gone and read the manga again.
The story is ruined by the animation as it feels like there is no
emotion, with characters having only one look on their face for long periods of time and nothing moving in the world at all.
FRAMES LAST FOR MINUTES!
In conclusion this is not an anime, it is a series of near static images with an audio book playing over it.
so, here we go again with this [GOING VIRAL GONE WRONG NO 5 WILL MAKE YOU SHOCKED] anime. the last time i watched this kind of show is when i accidentally get a recommendation of Detroit Metal City clips on youtube and damn i miss that anime.
well, get to the business
this anime revolves around the yakuza age that seems to be on the 90's era too with the 90's anime graphic but sharpened with the artist being bossed around by an insane person (reminds you of something?). it is so stupid that it makes you laugh because you know the punchline in the anime
is a joke that is common and you know it fit just right
i really like how the anime presents it's joke. the punchline, the backstory, the progress, it all goes quite good. a really nice anime to watch when you are looking for something to laugh at. this anime might be not for those who ask much for an anime like big story, epic plot-twist, etc. come here when you feel like watching a hilariously stupid show and have a good time
the badside... i don't know. maybe for those watcher who doesn't really get japanese based joke reference might not really enjoy the way the anime presents the story. i know this since a lot of people doesn't really watch anime like osomatsu-san for it's infamous japanese based jokes. but for this one, if you like or ofter watch japanese tv shows or maybe comedy serials, you might find this hilarious as hell.
i don't read the manga and doesn't plan to (or at least until the anime finished) since it might make the feel for this anime lost. i don't wanna ruin the element of surprise of every punchline it gives to me. i heard that people keep comparing the anime to the manga but who cares if you can have a good laugh
this isn't much of review since it's still an early review but i assure you that this is not a 3-eps rule review since i'm going to watch it for full show
if you are a fan of gag anime or short anime like Detroit Metal City and it's jokes, come aboard
I read the translated manga for this some months back. I found it to be a weird but slightly enjoyable manga.
I then find out that this is gonna get an Anime adaptation and I was mostly just confused as to why. It just doesn't seem like an actual thing you'd expect in an anime form. I got to admit, I'm curious as to how embarrassed the voice actors could've been.
The Music I won't lie Is actually pretty good in my opinion. I'd hope so with this being a show about Idols.
Now probably one of the biggest turn-offs for people is the animation. Most shows I've
watched aren't really that badly animated. But this takes the WR for the worst animated show that I can remember. I will admit that with a constrained budget that they did do some honestly nice visuals at times that you don't really see.
The Audio tends to not be in sync with the animation of the lips and we get a good amount of still images.
The thing I disliked the most in the Manga was that it's kind of depressing with these people always having to do what the Boss wants. I still feel bad for them even in anime form. Episode 2 is where the story got caught up with the manga, So I have no idea what's gonna happen now.
The voice acting at least from the "Girls" is actually pretty good if I am, to be honest. We did get a quick scene in a episode 2. It's a still image of one of the "Girls" Mother. The voice we got just didn't match the look of the mom at all.
I do also wish we got these characters in a different show. I like the models/design of the "Girls" I'd love if they were used in a different anime and don't have them be originally boys with their balls chopped off. I like the personalities and can see them in a school setting with the entire school knowing them as the weird duo. You have the very girly girl, The Leader and the Tomboy. I'd imagine they'd be discount School Idols.
Overall this is just a weird story. I did get some honest laughs out of me. But just because it's funny doesn't mean it's good either.
