Obviously, this "anime" is for fans and people who know about the "Virtual Youtuber" trend, although the story may seem somehow messy and movements sloppy, you have to actually know the characters to really get into this series, I personally find it fairly amusing since I follow these characters on YouTube and it is obviously not vying for the title of "anime of the season", but I think it's mostly directed towards the people who already know the characters, and a way to introduce the characters to other people who may not even know who these "people" are, I can assure you that at least
a person watched this and then went to YouTube to see more of these girls, aaaand, to be honest, their YouTube content is actually far better than this series, so go look for them on YouTube.
I'll try to introduce some of them to you.
Mirai Akari, the blond girl with blue dress, she's kinda average on her content, but she does some games and other trendy stuff on her channel.
Siro, the white hair girl with the long blue dress, she does playthroughs and other trendy stuff, she and Akari are among the first virtual youtubers and their channels have many subscribers.
Nekomiya Hinata, the girl with cat ears is actually known among the PUBG and Fortnite community, and she does a lot of videos about gaming, apparently, her favorite videgames are combat simulation like the ones I mentioned.
The others, the twins Hime and Hina and the other girl are not as "popular" but they also do YouTube, so go check them out.
And finally, all the other secondary characters have their own YouTube channels too.
You guys know VRChat? Well what if we turned VRChat into an anime. Sounds like a great idea right? *Spoiler alert: It isnt.
I honestly dont understand how this thing (I cant even get myself to call it an anime) was released.
It seems like there wasnt even a production value for this "thing", like honestly... just straight up open VRChat on Steam and start recording with OBS some random bullshit and then get yourself a 10 year old to do the editing and BOOM! You got yourself this anime.
Absolutly everything in this "thing" is non existant; the story is just a complete pile of
dogshit and these supposed "jokes" are not funny, nothing about this "thing" is funny. The only funny and unbelievable thing about this creation is the fact that it actually managed to get published. As far as the art goes... No... just straight up no... its trash, its VRChat. And for the sound, Im giving it a solid 2/10, they actually managed to add an opening and sound to this "thing" and therefore I must respect them for that. Watching these characters genuinly pains me, I would rather bash my head into the wall over and over instead of listening to these characters talk and watching their absolute garbage animations.
Overall Im giving this "thing" a solid 1/10. If you want to watch some unfunny VRChat garbage than this is the "anime" for you. <3
"Another weird Bad-CGI anime" is probably the first thing that comes to your mind when watching the first episode, especially if you don't know anything about Virtual YouTubers (VTubers) like me.
So after researching this topic, I've got a very different view on it.
First there is the art style, which is mostly CGI, sometimes mixed with other elements like real-life footage.
Most people would describe it as "Bad-CGI, I, however think that the artstyle is actually good, considering the style of Virtual YouTubers. At the end there is no objective good or bad style, but you can say that the used style simply fits the
theme of the anime.
The same goes for the characters, which compared to what I've seen, represent the ones of their respective channels well, which is also because they are voiced by the original VTubers, which is a innovative way to make the characters authentic.
Not much to say about the sound, nothing special about OP and ED, but I liked it.
Last but not least there's still this weird, confusing story, which at second glance isn't that confusing, if you've figured out the structure. There're a few different story segments which every episode consists of, with each centered around certain characters and a plot that more or less alludes to certain traits of the characters or their channels content. So similar to Pop Team Epic there is no coherent story, but rather independent parts as mentioned before.
The last thing to mention about the story is the "interactive" part, where you can send in your own virtual characters with a few sentences that will maybe appear in the show as a short clip.
If you've read this whole review, you really got too much time, but fortunally you're almost done.
So much words till here, but why should you watch this weird show, is the final question. I think because it's always good to broaden one's mind and this innovative, conceptionally differentiating from mainstream anime could help you with that or if you simply like this type of weird humor.
This anime is very bad, I just started watching it because Hideaki Anno is supporting the anime. And as a Evangelion fan I wanted to check it out.
The animation is a disaster, many times I saw the hair entering in the clothes and things like that. The movements of the characters are horrible (sometimes pretty slowly) and the special effects are very amateur.
The history is very poor and the humor is pretty forced mainly the characters and the situations they force, *spoiler alert * like having a volcano in their classroom and talking about their panties. Their react with the situations aren't very real.
write more spoilers, but it's pretty forced.
The sounds are mediocre, but I've liked the opening.
Well, I hope this anime gets better with time.
