Finally here come some impressions about shows we’ve already watched in the current season (spoiler – this season is better than previous one).
Watched 3 episodes and looks like we’ll finish this series. The story about Masamune Izumi, a young manga author (should I mention that he is a high school student?) whose sister doesn’t leave her room isn’t very special, characters are made from cliches and suspiciously remind of “Ore no Imouto” (Tsukasa Fushimi wrote both manga) but the anime might be an ideal choice if you want to watch something easygoing. This is a harem anime but its haremness is rather gentle; it contains ecchi scenes but they won’t make your eyes bleed. And no, Masamune isn’t Eromanga-sensei.
I have to admit that everything isn’t as scary as I was worried it’s going to be. Tsukigakirei is a very calm, nice and slow anime about a boy, who’s going to become a writer, and a girl, who is a member of a school track field team and who gets nervous regularly. Seemed like they had nothing in common but… You know that premise, right? =) The anime is drawn very unusually and characters aren’t annoying – I can’t even ask about something more.
This is about a salesman. Who is laughing all the time. And he helps people “fill the emptiness inside their hearts”, basically provides them with one or another way to fulfilling their dreams. But if a goal can be achieved so easily probably there’s a catch somewhere, don’t you think so? Every episode consists of two stories and no one of these stories will end well. Unfortunately, there’s no much depth in characters or their problems but anyway, “Laughing salesman” is something unusual and I’d recommend to try it out. And I haven’t said a single word about its style!
One of the anime we dropped immediately, after the first episode. A new replacement teacher comes to a magical academy and he shows himself as a, hm, bad replacement. He is lazy, doesn’t want to prepare anything for classes, has no idea what he’s supposed to be explaining during a lesson. His irresponsible and reckless behaviour drives nuts a main heroine, Sistine, who’s a talented mage and wants to do her best every minute of her life.
Why did we decide to skip this show? Stereotypical characters and stupid ecchi jokes, I believe these are two main reasons. Probably it might become better but I prefer to skip a show with such a vague perspective, luckily, we have a few really nice anime this time.
