Sniff of the Ass-snore-toria.

Smile of the Arsnortoria has some absolutely gorgeous art and detailed animation which LIDENFILMS puts on fall display in sakuga morning glory right from the word go. Ashram academy city is a magical finishing school that teaches young ladies magic as well as proper societal etiquette expected from proper ladies and it is bursting with colour, charm and personality. It is impossible to look at this show and not be utter spell bound… at first…

Unfortunately, all of the production values are wasted when the script is about as interesting as a lukewarm bowl of oatmeal. It's cute girls doing cute things such ...

Arsnotoria is one of the biggest teases I’ve seen in recent memory. For 12 weeks, we were bombarded with flashing red “warning” sequences hinting at some bigger, darker aspect of the story that just never came to fruition.

While I did genuinely enjoy girls doing cute things, going on adventures and just interacting with each other, I struggle to understand the point in foreshadowing a more serious story every episode for 30 seconds and then never connecting it to the main story and characters. It seemed like a massive missed opportunity.

In terms of what we did get in the story, Arsnotoria was a great way ...

Sniff, sniff. What's that I smell? Mediocrity? Boringness? From a mobage adaptation that only exists to sell its IP in Japan and not the West? Hmm, smells about right of a rotten egg.

The motive of mobage adaptations is to sell its narrative to fans, but this poses a big problem. 99% of the time, the mobages are region-locked so people elsewhere will not get to enjoy what it has to offer, but often at times this is counter-intuitive that the adverse effect is stronger than all the marketing effort has to offer. And in this season, the only mobage adaptation this season that's in the ...

An ero-manga artist and a laid back light novel writer that happens to be not blood related siblings work together to make a light nove-...oh wait wrong anime.

Arsnotoria resemblance to Sagiri is too similar that if I show Arsnotoria to some people,there's 98% possibility they will say that she is Sagiri.

All of that aside Warau Arsnotoria Sun is not just an anime that known cause the resemblance of one of it's character to another anime character.

Warau Arsnotoria is another cute girl doing cute stuff,since it's an anime adapted from an action RPG mobile game that barely even known outside Japan we can't really expect a ...

Imagine that one episode of Lucky Star where they talk about chocolate coronets, but instead stretched out to 18 minutes with a sudden swerve into hyper-violence starring completely different characters in a completely different artstyle, and you have Warau Arsnotoria Sun! Perhaps the ultimate example of Cute Girls Doing Nothing in the Reiwa era.

For me personally, I love the super comfy vibes the show brings every week. And very helpfully and hilariously, the arrival of the Knights is always preceded by a big "Warning" label so you can totally skip them if all you want to see is Kuno Misaki making strange noises. And by ...

I recommend this if you enjoy "slice of life". Wish the genre is fixed for this show, it's not marketing to the right audience, and I would've never run into this, if it weren't for me trying out new stuff.
Most people dislike this because of it's a remake of a game, and maybe have some types of expectation, but from someone just watching an "unknown show" perspective, this is comparable to most "slice of life" type of story telling, it's not grand, but it's not that awful either, I watched it as a story of magical school stuff in a "slice of life" genre mindset. ...

It should be illegal for a crappy game adaptation to have such good animation and visuals.

I guess I don't have anything else to say. This show is boring. Outside of the beautiful visuals, backgrounds, scenery, and fluid movement is basically nothing. It's generic CGDCT stuff with some small edgy stuff that doesn't seem to really impact the actual storyline. What a waste of production.

I wish I could say more, but what can I say about four generic girls in a generic magic academy doing generic girl stuff? I guess if I really had to give an impression on the characters, Little Alberta reminds ...

Here is my review of this anime in 2022!

Story (4)
The story is about a girl who is in the academy that has magical power. They have to fight insects that sometimes can enter the academy. On the other hand, there is another story that fills the world with war. I don't really understand the story but maybe you can understand it. So watch it and tell me what's going on :)

Art (6)
The art for this anime is quite good and not bad. But I prefer a lot of animation rather than just a static image with no movement. If only they have a lot of ...

This show is terrible. The plot moves at a snail's pace, the animation is cute in the beginning but over time you'll notice it is quite stiff, and there is not script, only cute girls eating scones. It was fun for the first episode, got dull by the second, and the following 10 were a hell of waiting for things to improve.
Interleaved are random action scenes by an inquisition that do not pay off at all. I am not sure there is going to be a sequel but I am not watching it.
Don't waste your time with this, go watch Lucky star instead.
Also I ...

Personally, I do like slice of life anime, and I do think this anime was cute.
However, since it's clearly just promotion for a mobile game westerners can't play, I can't be sure if I can recommend it to people.

I'm pretty sure this anime is based on life before the plot of the game starts.
Since all of the anime is just the daily life of these magical girls, going to class, playing games, and eating snacks.
It's very clear, that life outside of their comfy school life is not good, but are they going to talk about that? No, no they aren't,
you have to play the ...

Okay, by all metrics this should be a terrible show, a gacha game advertisement that has no direction in what exactly it was trying to tell or say. However, I have to personally admit, I am such a sucker for the genre that is slice of life "cute girls doing cute things" that I think my brain was melted by moe and I started to actually, unironically enjoy this.

The smile of arsnotoria is split into 2 different segments, the main show, which is "cute girls in a magic school having tea parties", and the occasional cut away of seemingly evil bishonen knights going around ...

to those who think that the Sun shines out of this Notorius Arse... (sorry lol)
good for you.

quite astonishingly and not-all-too surprising; it is Boring.
and that could just be fine, really. but this anime does not manage to do more than that.

plot and sub-plot (or whatever that was) are at complete disconnect with each other.
It makes no sense whatsoever, does not manage to create suspense, isn't properly resolved.

I wouldn't care to know that there even was a game to begin with when I'm just watching,
but that seems to be required for inferring the meaning of the sub-plot, or could it ...

This is an anime that rewards patience and a calm mind. This is not an action show; the plot is minimal. That is the case with the Monogatari franchise as well: a series in which story matters far less than presentation.

The artwork is gorgeous. The cute girls are very cute, and it matters little that what they do most is sit around, have tea and baked goods, and chat. There is just something about how it's done that makes this series work.

The impending doom of the evil, murderous men that pop up now and then adds an edge to the show that cuts through any ...
