Uhm. What is this I don't even?
But seriously, DAT FACE.
Also, it's darn hard catching something on a screenshot watching it live. >.>
I wasn't really planning to watch this, but... Meh, stumbled upon it and it seems pretty fun : >
Protip: I don't really check the forums anymore, so if you want something, take it on my profile.
Is it time for my long-awaited return to the forums? щ(゚Д゚щ) Nope™, probably not.

Finally, non-moe realistic slice-of-life comedy show. This is instant plus factor that I waited for so long. This was why I had anticipation on this title, and it certainly delivered it.

What I'm surprised about is its production value. It's just totally different from Arakawa or Bakemonogatari. There were a lot of animations unlike other SHAFT shows aired recently. I'm glad that they picked up with their quality management.

Aoi Yuuki's voice was another win. OP song itself was favourite of this season, and ED was pleasantly enjoyable.

I lol'd so hard at that part. XD

Had pretty high expectations for this, and they were definately met. Also, great OP and ED!

GG had problem with computer crashing, pwq is recruiting translators, Yamiyo is new group who is still not releasing KamiNomi when it is their first project.

Hopefully, it will come out soon.

Very funny show, and with Omigawa Chiaki ( Soul Eater's Maka ) voicing fits her totally.

I also like the OP animation and the animation in general, very SHAFT-like. I had my doubts at first though, without knowing it's them who are animating it.



Those won't be enough for me to buy the DVDs though.

Loved it furiously. Reminded me Natsu no Arashi in some way.
Anyway, it's great.

There are some subs out, but they are pretty engrishy. Even with that though, I liked it quite a lot.

I was surprised that I liked Arashiyama's voice as much as I did. From the previews I thought it might be annoying, but it fits her character really well.

Hopefully some decent subs come out sooner rather than later, but it was a good start for the show.

watched it with some pretty bad subs, but i guess at this point beggars cant be choosers. this could be good, watching with better subs it might help, but i think my real problem is IMO Arashiyama's seiyuu is a rare Jap dub miscast. I just dont picture Maka/P-Ko's voice when i look at that character(not sure what i was expecting). maybe i'll get used to it...

This reminds me of Natsu no Arashi so im optimistic that this will grow on me.

loved this! I had zero expectations and wasn't sure what I was watching, but I laughed. A lot. Love Arashiyama's voice too... makes her character even cuter. Looking forward to more!

I disliked pretty much everything about it. Annoying characters, some non-fitting voices, fail attempts at comedy, and bad OP/ED songs. The pace was fine, and animation was surprisingly good for shaft, but they don't make up for the rest of the crap dished up. Starting at 3/10.

Awesome stuff. Awesome voices, Omigawa is totally kickass and is probably going to become on of my favorite seiyuu after this show. Also, the blonde girl's voice from the ED...totally sexy. Can't wait for her to appear in the show. Music, sound, artwork...all superb. Not to mention it's fun. Overall, it looks like the gem of this less than average season indeed.

I absolutely loved the OP and the ED. The visuals for the OP make it really fun! The visuals for the ED are quite cool too.

The episode is only okay to me. I read the first volume of the manga and I felt that the pacing of the anime is a bit forced. I think it will grow on me though.

Omigawa Chiaki's voice is a little annoying to me >.<. Yuuki Aoi as Tatsuno, on the other hand, was excellent. And Sakurai Takahiro as the the head maid surprised me. (WTF a guy voicing a granny!)

Shinbou Akiyuki's eye shots and scenery cuts return! Lol.

I guess I'm among the minority who thought Arashiyama's voice was incredibly grating and irritating?

Fun show though with some neatly esoteric animation.

Pretty normal, especially since it's SHAFT.

Pretty average start from an above average season (imo).

Her voice has always been shit. The reason some people is satisfied with her is not because voice acting was good, it's because it wasn't that bad as we all expected.

More I surprised was, Sakurai Takahiro voicing grandma.

Not true. Omigawa is currently one of the best seiyuu out there. Mostly because she doesn't act at all, which makes her sound as natural as possible.

Well, I do appreciate your saying, but her voice somewhat gets sworse once the force goes to her throat. It's also general concesus of 2ch which has scorned her voice since her Maka role. Maybe it's just me being biased who admires woman with 1000 voices, like Saitou Chiwa or Yuuji Aoi.

However, I do think it Omigawa fits Ayashiyama way better than I thought. Still, she is out-shined by Sakurai who breaks through the impossible and voice female cast. No-one is complaining about him in anywhere.

ROFL!
GAWD, I LOVE THIS!!! =D
Yeah, sure, it had quite some cliche ideas spurting up, and Arashiyama's voice is annoying when it goes nasal (I'd imagined a soft, mellow voice, like the OP singer's), but gosh, I totally love the fast-paced moments, number of heightening situations, and the expressions. The characters are realistic, not all hot and pretty looking, which, though makes you cringe, it totally adds to the entertainment and development value. And gosh, the ART and ANIMATION is AMAZING! I totally LOVE the angles and details.

Heeee!!! I am SO glad I'm watching this! I just hope it keeps up with a solid plot.

Pleasant surprise of the season for me, wil replace SYD for my rather-bland comedy of the season.
Btw the ED is the best of this season, I smell a trap on its though >_>

It didn't appeal to me that much for some reason, so I'll blame the bad subs. When something better comes out, I'll rewatch it. Great opening and ending though.

I agree with you. It's not that I don't like the voice (when it fits, it really does and a very big plus is that it's "iconic" or whatever you want to call it), but it doesn't really work out well in this show. It becomes very irritating when she's trying to sound energetic, which probably will be quite often in Soredemo Machi. Sadly, it becomes a pain to listen to her. She's great, but not in this role.
I have my own anime blog. It's called Anime Viking. Hope you'll you read it!

Well this was surprisingly not awful. Apparently Shinbo is so busy right now that he couldn't bother to detract from the scrappy underdog appeal this show has by over-directing it to death and making it as bad as almost everything else that has been made by SHAFT in the last couple years. I fully expect the mediocre animation quality to fall to the typical slideshow levels and the premise to wear thin incredibly quickly though, so I'm undecided if I even want to stick around for that or not.

I dunno, it was worse than I expected. It was somehow boring, and I don't like the main girl's seiyuu. Sakurai Takahiro as the head maid is win tough.

Very strange show, the humor is pretty much hit or miss. Kinda surprised not to hear Kamiya Hiroshi voicing the male lead. And SHAFT really shouldn't use CG. The ED was kinda fun, but the instruments looked pretty bad. Even worse was the scene in class where the camera was zooming in, the chairs and tables moved faster than the floor, looking very odd.

Also, Sparta:

wtf did I just watch?

aside from the sparta gag, and the somewhat corny jokes, this series is just like Seitokai no Ichizon, except it takes place in a so called "maid cafe", instead of the student council room

It was extremely funny and well directed as always by Shinbou. Pretty much like the new Natsu no Arashi (actually, even the name of the main characters is the same) of the season. Count me in for a good laugh.

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.
