The story takes place in a future Akihabara where otaku culture has declined. Players play as a shopkeeper of an otaku shop. Together with the heroines who are in fact otaku girls, the shopkeeper start helping people claim their lost otaku memories back.
In the beginning I thought that Pastel Memories was the Akanesasu Shoujo of this season, oh boy how I was wrong.
Like Akanesasu Shoujo, and a lot of other animes of this kind, Pastel Memories have magical girls who are at the same kind of group and go to other realities to save the day from a creature who creates slimes or whatever kind of minor monster. But the resemblance stops right there.
If I have to name it Pastel Memories it would be: Akanesasu Shoujo but everything is 10 times garbage. And look, Akanesasu Shoujo was not a good anime.
This anime is pathetic, everything in it
is terrible, there is nothing at all that save it.
The characters are a shame and an example of how DO NOT make a group of heroines, be it a comedy anime or an mahou shoujo anime. We are in 1/3 of the anime and I do not like any of the characters, for the contrary, I already hate one of them. This 'magical bunny' can be more disgusting than Kuma of Persona 4.
The history has a poor introduction and a pitiful development.
The art is painful to watch, seconds and seconds just stopped in a frame with some minuscular thing moving. The art is also inconsistent.
The opening has nothing at all to present, it is just bad music with mediocre art. But the ending, oh my god...
The ending is the definition of how desperate this anime is. With none connection to the anime plot the ending is a straight minute of ecchi. The principal characters and even some others in beach outfits in completely different bodies in comparison to the real anime sensualizing to the spectator, begging for your audience in the next episode. I hate it so much that this was what motivated me to do this review.
Do not watch this anime, the industry deserves better than this kind of effortless shit.
Akihabara is the city that most people are most interested in when visiting Japan, Akihabara is an otaku city where all the anime-smelling items are available there. visitors now mysteriously suddenly become lonely. In the first episode they present something perfect but somehow in the next episode they become messy and not broken like broken plates, the storyline they offer when it's interesting but what I explained earlier is that falling apart for some reason.
The animation style they present also seems stiff and character design is nothing so special but there is one important point that I appreciate in terms of graphics that they are
very solid in making battle scenes even though the animation they offer is very rigid. In this series it has six main characters and they are different types / types I will summarize into one section between the character chapters and sound chapters, even though they are hampered in the story section but they can compensate for that with the quality of the music, voice, and solid background music. character is very fitting even they can mimic sounds that are different from their age.
As a manga and anime lover, I honestly enjoy what they offer and I appreciate it, a difficult job that at first they are just an object of sentence / word but they can turn it into a video object.
…probably this unique word resumes the anime.
Yes, the anime is very repetitive, seriously, basically every episode is a manga infected by a virus, and they save the manga, but it is in every episode.
In the beginning, the anime looks like very cool, but it is only in episode 1 and 2, as I said, the others episodes is basically the second episode, but in a different manga.
In my opinion the art of the anime is very beautiful (this is one of the reason that decided to watch it), and I like this style, but probably this is the unique good thing in this
anime, and it isn’t a good reason to watch it.
Seriously, don’t waste your time with this anime; there are so many betters anime than this one.
At the beginning of the year I decided to start watching regular mainstream and airing anime starting this season, and this was just one of arround 5 anime I started.To be honest, I doubt anyone will get offended with this, so here I go (._.)
Pastel Memories, Started 9th January, dropped 1st February.
At the beginning this seemed like an interessting idea.Like a view on the anime fanbase if the popularity died out, or something like that.I thought it was a nice, new plot I haven't ever seen before, so at that time I would have given this anime a 7/10 perhaps.But of course they had
to ruin it fast.In the beginning the workers at the maid cafe wanted to find all volumes of some manga a customer requested.Well, they went on and checked all 6ish anime stores in Akihabara to search for it, and found all volumes.But then instead of ending it there, they had to add some "virus" that deletes peoples memories of the manga ,and then some more shop members had to teleport without any reason to take over the shop even if noone ever visits it (Like, one customer a day is max. they get), and then a weird ass rabbit came and telemported them inside the manga, just so they'd have a dumb fight with the "virus"? Overfilled with useless clishes.Not cute.
The only thing that I think is avarage in this show.There are bright colours, some pastels and the overall art is fine.I liked the backgrounds most, but for hells sake why are there 8 pairs of oversized tits?I don't even care if they're all titty thots but everything has a point where it should stop, even anime titties.
The only thing I can remember is the openings sentence "Believe in sky" ,there is nothing memorizable about the OST, the ending is pure skipping material and the voice acting was meh.I didn't really pay much attention to this, since it's bad I'm fine with not listening to it as much.
To be honest, there are too many clishes and one girl sounds like she came straight out of nekopara, one is like a magical girl and one is the clishe main protagonist, I'm very dissappointed because aren't these supposed to be a little bit more mature as shop keepers?Not just be all kawaii-desu-nya-san.Yikes, time to flex on these girls with my waifu xd
I was dead bored with this show since episode 2.I couldn't stand it.Not.A.Minute.More.
I literally had to stop cuz I didn't want to waste my time, I had better shows to watch and complete while I'm still not head over heels in homework and tasks.
Don't remember if I ever dropped an anime, even if I started watching anime as an otaku 4 years ago.I finished all series I started, but this was apsolute bullcrap.I even finished pupa, an even worse anime, just because it wasn't this long.If this wasn't 12 episodes x 20ish minutes, I might have watched to the end.But frick I ain't spending more than an hour on this shit anymore.There are better shows to watch, and pastel memories just can't be on that list.
