THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
So it's like a 3D-ish looking anime with cute girls doing cute things..although they do have a goal of wanting to adapt idol themes.

Pretty underwhelming imo so far.

This needs to be filed under anime experiments that failed like Venus Project, it's even worse than Venus Project as it had effort put into it, VP just had a bad formula, this had not much effort put into it just like I said earlier.

This reminds me of an anime from a few years ago not sure what if was called but it had similar 3d going on and similar jokes.
Can't see with was good tho.
Any case this seemed to be all over the place as well.

Maybe the series is rare for the internet as this time. Somehow I found the first episode at dailymotion. The link is right here - http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x4jr3ag

I personally didn't really like it, but I'm going to wait for the 2nd episode to come out to judge, and so far the score is a 3, and i'll drop it if it stays or goes lower. I suppose it's a new studio though, and it's their first anime.

It's another one of those series that barely pass as anime and are more akin to a podcast or a radio program. The dialogue is recorded in one go with the three voice actresses talking to each other in real time and crude 3D animation as avatars for their acting (I think it's motion captured).

I loved gdgd Fairies, which wasn't far from this concept, but I don't see the appeal here. Gdgd worked not only because of the girls, but also because they took advantage of the shitty 3D animation to ramp up the absurdist humo. It also had several different segments like a variety show, so each part didn't drag for too long. This one just seems so plain in comparison

This is the biggest mess of a show I've seen. The camera was all over the place and the blonde girls hair stuck through one of the other girls. Couldn't even concentrate on whatever crap they were saying cos of the damn camera.

Fucking terrible. Most of it just feels like the seiyuus had a random conversation on Skype and some people tried to animate it.

Some of the worst production values I've seen in an anime ever. Cheap CG + still frames is not a good combination AT ALL. Voice acting also sounds very off.

What.... what did I just watch? Did this thing have a zero dollar budget? Why is the animation so bad? (even for CGI it's bad) Why are the desk giant? (I mean, look at that scale! Those desks are either really large or the main characters are really tiny)
I.... I don't even.... o__O"

All I have to say is :

You seem to be the only other person in this topic who isn't a newb to this kind of show. It is what it is. The jokes could be better in this and there could be a bit more coherence (Segahai had a bit more coherence in that at least they stuck to a situation; they seem to be just asking seiyuu to say random seasonal phrases in this one). Still, it doesn't deserve a 1 or a 4. I think 6 or 5 make sense, but I tend to rate shows that are pure annoying junk at 5 or below. The show doesn't annoy me and lets me pass the time, so I'll give it a pass and hope it gets better.

I really do wish anime fans could try and understand style before immediately blacklisting a show, though. You can dislike that style all you want, but you should try and see if there's anything to enjoy. As you said, GDGD was fun. Shows with odd art styles or a lack of animation can be good, but it all depends on how it's used and what it's aiming for. This is not an action show, so it doesn't matter as much.

This horrible thing it's just a bad spin off Tesagure Bukatsumono.

The CGI are terrible bad, look at that collisions between objects and gravity effect on hair.

Also the lipsink issue.

You rate pure annoying junk as "average?" You do know what a 5 means, right?

Most shows don't deserve anything too low unless they can't be described as actual, functional anime. I'd have to hate half of a show to give it a 5 or more for less. Usually I can enjoy parts but not like parts or be tired of the premise. Does pandering garbage deserve a 2? Not in my opinion.

I swear this has even worse animation than Mahou Yuugi 3D which aired 15 years prior. I know that new technology takes a while to perfect, but why would they bother making an anime with an animation device that doesn't even work yet?

I honestly don't think this how even had script. I think they probably said to the seiyuus: "Just talk about something and then we'll put some cheap CG models". Hell, seiyuus here aren't even using their work voices. It's just a normal voices.

What the F is this?...

The girls animation was so crappy, there was a lot of clippings and clothes going into their bodies.

And what's with the "Crab Walk" legs? thir legs are constantly spread like they want to go "poo" or something...

And nothing happens beside them constantly talking and TALKING... like they're DRUNK...

I am skipping this show...

The Title was a Trap, and I got Lured.... ashamed, no longer trust the words "Mahou Shoujo"

And did I mention anything non-CG was pure static?

Exactly what I was thinking. Have any of you never seen a flash animation before? This style is used in a lot of short comedy series. They intentionally make it like this.

I for one liked it. It wasn'tas good as GDGD or Nyarko-san, but still funny. Especially when they transformed into the same clothes.

And I really liked how it was just three girls having a real conversation. And I agree that it must have been motion capture , because you get their real body language, etc.

I think this is a cool concept, and has potential. As long as they can keep the jokes fresh .

I can't believe that they think art like this is ok.
Lots of still images.
And then these MMD girls chatting nonsense for wasting time.
Even in MMD, very minimalistic movements. Hair doesn't even move properly.

Never seen something like this in my life.

There is no such thing as shit taste. Only idiots who think everyone should have the same taste as they do.

wtf. I honestly had expectations for this my the premise. I honestly thought the plot of making an anime of yourselves to become popular as a pretty interesting plot for a SoL.
But the actual episode had nothing to do with that. It's like the VAs just talked to each other casually with some really poor jokes. Then they made an MMD out of it.

The described plot of this show sounds like it is describing the actual producers.: trying to make a animu of themselves in a magical girl show to become famous and fail. Except they forgot the fail part.

If the transformation scene was a joke on changing it to the exact clothes they already wore, then that would be the only thing they did well because I honestly laughed.
