I know there's at least one other fan of anime on this board, and perhaps more, so I thought I'd do a review of some of the anime I've watched. I'm hoping others will do the same.

I'm two episodes in to a new sci-fi comedy anime on Cartoon Network's Saturday night Toonami block called Space Dandy.

Humorous, in a Monty Python attempts to adapt The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy kind of way, with the title character (think a Johnny Bravo-Austin Power's cross with a spaceship) wanting to claim the reward for identifying and cataloging every new alien he finds.

Unfortunately, no luck on that front (yet?) but considering some of the material and dialogue so far, it does have me wondering about the original version versus the TV presentation of this and other shows.

I know a lot of people really love Space Dandy. I tried it myself and it just didn't work for me.

Title: Blend-S

Episodes: 12

Category: Comedy/Slice of Life

 

Plot (Plot and character descriptions "liberated" from Wikipedia):

 

High school girl Maika Sakuranomiya has trouble finding a part-time job because of how scary she looks when smiling. However, she is scouted one day by an Italian man who is also the manager of Stile, a café where its waitresses are given unique traits such as tsundere and younger sister. Maika is given a sadist trait because of her looks and has to adopt a dominant and cruel persona when servicing customers, particularly masochist ones.

 

Characters:

Maika Sakuranomiya - a 16-year-old girl who despite having a positive and cheerful personality, unintentionally gains a sadistic look in her eyes whenever she smiles. This look catches the attention of Dino, who scouts her to be the 'sadistic girl' waitress at café Stile. Despite being told that the customers like being treated badly, her worrying about how she is treating customers gets the better of her, causing her to snap into an apologetic personality as soon as they have left. She comes from a very traditional family and works part time so she could study abroad using her own money. Her love of other countries also makes her develop an admiration towards Colonel Sanders (whom she refers to as the "old man from the chicken place") and Santa Claus. She adores Dino because of his blond hair but is oblivious to Dino's crush on her.

Kaho Hinata - ho is a 17-year-old waitress at Stile who acts as the tsundere. She loves playing video games and often visits arcades, but this usually causes her to quickly run out of money. Although she plays the tsundere girl, Kaho's real personality is that of a carefree and cheerful person. She has trouble keeping up her tsundere persona when customers are discussing video games, feeling the need to join in. She is currently the most popular waitress at Stile.

Mafuyu Hoshikawa - Mafuyu is another waitress at Stile who is actually a 21-year-old college student, but plays the younger sister character because of her petite figure. Her real personality is mature and she rarely shows emotion, but easily gets excited whenever her favorite series, Aisatsu (Magical Frill in the anime), is involved. She has a younger brother who is taller than her, and she has always wanted a younger sister, although she will not include Kaho because of Kaho's body figure.

Miu Amano - Miu is one of the waitresses who fulfills the older sister trait. She usually wears glasses and is a 22-year-old dōjinshi artist in a group called "Hanazono Folder" that draws adult comics. Miu initially came to the café as a customer, then Dino scouted her and she accepted to get inspiration for her dōjinshi. One of her hobbies is observing people, particularly the relationship between Dino and Maika; she even uses them as models in her dōjinshi.

Hideri Kanzaki - Hideri is a 16-year-old waitress who fulfills the idol trait. Hideri is actually a boy who dresses as a girl and aspires to become an idol. He works at Stile to gain fans; giving proof to his parents that he is talented, or else he has to inherit his family's farm. While he acts like a "cute" girl all the time, he can unintentionally become manly and sometimes helps Dino get closer to Maika.

Dino - Dino is a 26-year-old Italian manager of Stile and works in the kitchen. He loves anime girls and figurines, and often stays up late to watch late night anime. His nose bleeds whenever he gets excited. Due to his attraction for Japanese girls, particularly the black-haired ones, he develops an open crush on Maika, although Maika herself is oblivious to this fact. He lives on the second floor above Stile and took in a dog named Owner per Maika's request.

Kōyō Akizuki - Kōyō is the 21-year-old chef at Stile who loves yuri and always wants to see female customers being friendly to each other so he can imagine it. As someone who works at the same station as Dino, he has to work harder because the latter often slacks off. Like Kaho, he is also a gamer and later becomes more conscious of her.

Aika Sakuranomiya - is Maika's older sister who dresses in a yamato nadeshiko manner. She often worries about Maika because of her scary eyes. Like her sister, Aika is a natural sadistic character. She mistakes Dino as Maika's boyfriend.

Kōichi Sakuranomiya - Kōichi is Maika's older brother who is recognizable from his black hair with bangs parted in the middle. Like his sisters, he is a natural sadistic character. He is worried about Maika who has few friends because of her scary eyes. He mistakes Dino as Maika's boyfriend.

What's good:

This is just plain cute, and frequently hilarious. The characters are mostly adorable and very likeable, and it's a nice light-hearted change from some recent anime I've watched. Maika in particular is really fun and cute, and watching this series you find yourself rooting for all of the characters.

What doesn't work:

The only complaint I have--and it's extremely minor--is that I didn't really enjoy the character of Hideri. It just seems like they made him an obnoxious character mainly because they didn't have one, but the show had been just fine without said character.

Fanservice Level:

There;s fanservice, but it's not the blatant "in your face" annoying type. Sure, there's a beach episode, and it seems as if Kaho has no concept of what a brassiere is, but it's really done more for humor than anything. I didn't find it distracting.

Perverted Character(s)

Pretty much every male character in the anime is perverted in some way, yet once again it's really not obnoxious or off-putting. It's done primarily for the sake of humor, and in that manner it works.

Final Thoughts:

Blend-S is a cute, fun, frequently hilarious short series, and definitely worth a watch if you have the chance and feel so inclined.

My rating: 9/10

 

Blend-S is available on Crunchyroll.com.

 

Interesting. Another one that I was not familiar with.

Title: Outbreak Company

Episodes: 12

Category: Comedy/Fantasy

 

Plot (Plot and character descriptions "liberated" from Wikipedia):

 

Shin'ichi Kano is a young secluded otaku who is offered a job thanks to his vast knowledge of anime, manga, and video games. However, just after meeting his new employer, he is kidnapped, awakening in an alternate world with a fantasy setup. Shin'ichi is then informed that he was in fact selected by the Japanese government to help improve his country's relations with this new world by establishing a company to spread the unique products of the Japanese culture to this new, unexplored market.

 

Characters:

 

Shin'ichi Kano - Shin'ichi is the protagonist. He decides to look for a job in order to escape the hikikomori lifestyle he had fallen into after entering high school, but as a result he ends up employed in spreading otaku culture for the Holy Eldant Empire. He is a hardcore otaku who is true and honest to his interests.

 

Myucel Foaran - Myucel is a half-elf who is Shin'ichi's maid in the Holy Eldant Empire. Having no discrimination at her origins, Shin'ichi quickly befriends Myucel and starts teaching her the Japanese language. In response to his kindness, Myucel eventually falls in love with him and becomes his most trusted supporter. Myucel is a powerful mage who was trained in the Eldant military.

 

Petralka Anne Eldant III - Despite looking like a child, she is about Shin'ichi's age and is the monarch of the Eldant Empire. She takes an interest in Shin'ichi after seeing how casually he speaks with her and starts visiting him on a regular basis to have him read manga for her which in turn causes her to develop deep feelings for him. Petralka usually complains at Myucel out of jealousy due to her closeness with Shin'ichi and asks him to teach her the Japanese language as well.

 

Minori Koganuma - A well-endowed member of the JSDF assigned to help Shin'ichi with his task of spreading the otaku culture in Eldant. Minori is also an otaku but unlike him, she is a fujoshi specialized in boys-love merchandise and usually fantasizes about Shin'ichi with Garius becoming a couple. Minori is an accomplished fighter and is capable of defeating a group of armed vigilantes without the need of a weapon.

 

Elbia Hanaiman - A werewolf, who was suspected as a spy from the neighboring Bahailm Kingdom. She develops a crush on Shin'ichi and once attacked him while in heat because of it. She is entrusted as Shin'ichi's personal artist.

 

Jinzaburo - The man from the Japanese government who hires Shin'ichi to the task of spreading the Japanese culture in Eldant. However, he only reveals him the true nature of his mission after having him drugged and taken away from Earth.

 

Garius En Cordbal - Petralka's cousin and a knight. His and Petralka's parents fought for the throne which ended with their mutual deaths, leaving Petralka to become a ruler despite being a child. Thanks to Minori's influence, Garius becomes interested in boys-love manga and apparently he has some interest in Shin'ichi.

 

What's good:

 

Outbreak Company is what's known as an Isekai anime, or an anime where a character is transported to a world of fantasy, such as inside a video game or some other fantasy setting. There are a lot of these, particularly over the last few years as a couple of extremely popular ones were created.

 

So, this particular Isekai anime is, in a nutshell, hilarious. Shinichi is an excellent main character, easily identifiable as an otaku, and he acts just like one. The characters from Eldant are tremendously funny, particularly Petralka as she becomes more and more familiar with the culture and attempts to try things out for herself (her Tsundere impression is something to watch). There's also a tremendously funny "beach episode" that hits all of the standard tropes in a quite amusing fashion. There are many references to other classic anime, and it's all a blast to watch.

 

What doesn't work:

 

I can't really think of anything to complain about. Maybe it could have been a couple of episodes longer.

 

Fanservice Level:

 

There is fanservice, and it's hilarious.

 

Perverted Character(s)

 

Shinichi is a little perverted, but not in a way that's annoying.

 

Final Thoughts:

 

Just fun, and worth watching.

 

My rating: 9/10

Title: Gamers!

Episodes: 12

Category: Romantic Comedy

 

Plot (Plot and character descriptions "liberated" from Wikipedia):

 

Keita Amano, a high school boy who enjoys playing video games by himself, is approached by the beautiful school idol Karen Tendō to join the school's Gaming Club. Keita tries it out, but finds it is about competitive gaming, so he declines her offer. This rejection sets off a trigger of events in the lives of Keita and his fellow students in matters of both video games and romance with no small amount of misunderstandings along the way.

 

Characters:

 

Keita Amano - Keita is a rather plain second-year high school student who loves video games. He initially does not have any school friends, preferring to just play on his handheld console or on his phone. He considers Karen Tendo to be the perfect girl, but turns down her invitations to join the Game Club because he prefers to play games for fun and not as something competitive. He often thinks of himself as unworthy of her affections, but is encouraged by Tasuku to be friends with KarenLN 1 and eventually ask her out. In later episodes, he reveals that sometimes, he does like to compete to win. He uses two online usernames, Tsucchi and Yama, both of which are based on his mother's maiden name Tsuchiyama. He is a big fan of independent game designer "Nobe", and teams up with online player Mono.Ep. 3 He is very stubborn when it comes to his opinions on games, clashing with Chiaki Hoshinomori regularly over use of moe characters and other things, even though the two are very much alike.Ep. 3, 5 In the light novel, Keita notes that he has a brother two years younger.LN 1

 

Karen Tendo - Karen is the most beautiful girl at school and the president of the school's Game Club. She has long naturally blond hair and green eyes.[b] She excels in everything at school from looks and popularity to sports to academics.LN 1Ep. 1 She had enrolled in the school because of the club's prestige, but its senior members had left, so she took it upon herself to revive the club, and she privately recruits members as she does not want it to be filled with guys who are only interested in asking her out.LN 1 She invites Keita to join her club, but when she is rejected, she becomes noticeably upset. While watching Keita from a distance, she develops a crush on him because he stands up to Tasuku in defending her and the club,LN 1 She becomes flustered whenever she thinks of him or interacts with him, that it messes up her focus on her daily routines of going for a morning jog, helping teachers, rejecting love confessions from suitors, and hanging out with the Game Club.Ep. 4 She mistakenly believes that Keita and Aguri are a couple, having seen them together.Ep. 3–5 Midway through the anime series, she spontaneously accepts Keita's asking her to be a couple, but is willing to stay in the relationship.Ep. 6-7

 

Tasuku Uehara - Keita's classmate is a good-looking and outgoing guy. He is an occasional gamer and is skilled at arcade games. A former gamer nerd in middle school, he changed his appearance and attitude when he entered high school to shun gamer nerds, yet feels drawn to be involved in Keita's life and his situation with Karen that he is willing to help Keita progress in his social life.LN 1 He is quite proud that he landed a cute girlfriend Aguri, but later learns that Aguri had liked him back when he was a nerd.Ep. 2 He is the first to make the connection between Keita and Chiaki's gaming personas, and then tries to pair the two together as friends, while also supporting Keita and Karen's relationship. He creates a Gamers Meet-Up Club with all parties involved, however, his efforts, as well as his increasing interactions with Chiaki and Karen, lead to more misunderstandings.Ep. 5

 

Aguri - Aguri is Tasuku's girlfriend. In the anime, she is a petite girl with pink hair and purple eyes. She does not play video games nor has interest in them. She fell in love with Tasuku after he gave her a plushie doll in middle school, and she changed her appearance as well in order to get closer to him.Ep. 2 She becomes jealous that Tasuku is being friendly with Chiaki, but allies with Keita to help him relate better with Karen.

Chiaki - Chiaki is a shy and quiet girl in Karen's class. She has messy "seaweed" dark blue hair and purple eyes. She enjoys playing handheld and phone games like Keita, and had declined Karen's invitation to join the Game Club. At school, she and Keita initially get along because they agree on many things about games, until they clash over their opinions on putting moe characters in video games. She takes Tasuku's advice on improving her appearance, and cuts her hair, but her increased interactions with Tasuku make Aguri jealous.Ep. 3 She is Keita's online friend "Mono" and his favorite indie game developer "Nobe", although both Chiaki and Keita are unaware of each other's online personas.Ep. 5 She is shocked when Keita reveals his gaming personalities to the group, and begins to develop feelings towards him.Ep. 8

 

Eiichi Misumi - Eiichi is Karen's classmate who joins the Game Club at the beginning of the series. He has short black hair. His specialty is in arcade puzzle games, but he also is able to adapt to learning new games and growing skills based on observing how others play. He says that he got into gaming because he had lost his memory when he was younger and playing block puzzles gives him a link to his past.Ep. 1 The last episode in the anime series shows his secretive past in which he had escaped some underground organizations, and then encounters his estranged sister Riki in the finals of a game tournament.Ep. 12

Gakuto - Gakuto is a third-year student, and a member of the Game Club. He has red hair and wears glasses. He gets serious when it comes to FPS games. He took up gaming because his father was mercenary who trained him in the family business when he was a kid.Ep. 1

 

Niina Oiso - Niina is a third-year member of the Game Club who specializes in fighting games. Karen considers her the sexy big sister type. She has long brown hair and brown eyes. She doesn't talk with people while she is playing. Karen said she got into gaming in order to win her friend back by trying to defeat her in a fighting game.Ep. 1

 

Konoha - Konoha is Chiaki's younger sister. She is envious of Karen Tendo's popularity and is somewhat happy that she didn't have to compete with her by going to a different school where she could become student council president. She secretly enjoys adult games and revels in being in the company of cute girls.Ep. 8 When Keita visits Chiaki's home and accidentally sees the "Mono" and "Nobe" information, Chiaki tells Keita that Konoha is the person behind those accounts.Ep. 9 She tries to support her sister in relating closer to Keita.

 

What's good:

 

This show is just cute.

 

It's not always laugh out loud funny, but it makes you smile a lot. Most of the humor comes from misunderstandings between the characters, almost like an extended episode of Three's Company. That said, it's better than that for a number of reasons. For one, there aren't necessarily tidy resolutions to the various issues in the show. By the end of the series, none of the characters are really who they were when the series started, and the series doesn't end up neatly tied up in a bow, but rather feels as if the person tying it up couldn't decide which knot to use.

 

With a title like Gamers! it sounds like it's focused entirely on gaming and gaming culture, but it isn't. It's a romantic comedy at heart, featuring characters that have difficulty communicating their feelings or understanding their feelings in the first place.

 

To be honest, this is kind of an 11 episode series rather than 12, as the last episode is essentially a philosophical argument about whether games are a ripoff and the nature of DLC. That being said, it's an enjoyable issue, albeit with problems.

 

What doesn't work:

 

As stated before, much of the humor comes from the misunderstandings between the characters. There are times when you, as the viewer, want to reach through your TV screen and slap the characters to wake them up and just talk to the other people they have issues with rather than making their own assumptions It sometimes works for the series, and sometimes gets really frustrating.

 

 

Fanservice Level:

 

There is fanservice, and it gets particularly annoying, especially in the last episode, which is set at a resort in an Onsen. It really takes you out of the charm of the story you're watching and becomes annoying. There are reasons for it, particularly for that last episode, but it's still jarring.

 

Perverted Character(s)

 

Well, they are high school kids and gamers, but their perverse thoughts are not over the top or objectionable.

 

Final Thoughts:

 

It's a solid anime and worth a watch, especially if you like romantic comedies. I'm not a fan of the fanservice as I don't think it's necessary, but otherwise I think it's pretty enjoyable.

 

My rating: 8/10

 

Gamers! is available on Crunchyroll.com.

 

Randy:

I may be in the minority here, but could you please explain to me what "Crunchyroll.com" is, along with your other anime sources?

Thanks in advance.

Cruncyroll.com is a subscription service that allows you to stream anime through your browser. You have the choice of a ffree account with lots of ads, or a paid account that will allow you to watch as much anime as you can stand. However, they don't have every title. There are shows like Devilman:Crybaby that are exclusive to Netflix, for instance. Crunchyroll is pretty good though.

Title: Tsurezure Children
Episodes: 12 15-minute episodes
Category: Romantic Comedy

Plot -
This anime follows the romantic foibles of several high school couples.

Characters:

There are a lot of characters, and there aren't any main protagonists. I could describe the couplings, and I will hit on a couple of them later in the review, but it would take a while to write that and I'm feeling lazy.

What's good:

Tsurezure Children is a sweet, funny comedy. If I were to use one word to describe the show, it's charming.

The show is divided up into various segments highlighting various couples, and their awkwardness and inability to express themselves to one another. The scenes range from bittersweet (the couple that can't seem to make each other understand that they really like each other and are worthy of being liked) to incredibly hilarious (the couple that have known each other since childhood and never kissed deciding to have sex but continually getting interrupted by his mother and ruining the mood). The character designs are also very nice, and the interactions between the characters are all quite believable and natural as well.

What doesn't work:

The biggest problem is that the show really isn't long enough to develop the characters fully. Some couples get a lot of screen time, others much less. They all go to the same school, so you see a little interaction between them, but really not enough. While I enjoy the brevity of the show, I do wish it had been longer.

Fanservice Level:

None to speak of.

Perverted Character(s)

Nothing out of the ordinary.

Final Thoughts:

It's a sweet anime, definitely worth watching if you have the time, and given the shortness of the episodes, one could easily watch the series in 3 hours. I highly recommend it.

My rating: 9/10

Tsurezure Children is available for streaming on Crunchyroll.com.

Title: Inferno Cop

Episodes: 13 4 minute episodes plus 12 23 second "Fact Files" (the final episode is 12 minutes long, but the last eight minutes are series credits).

Category: Absurdist Comedy

 

Plot -

Inferno Cop was a police officer whose family was killed by the crimnal Southern Cross organization. He was also killed, but resurrected to gain his vengeance on the organization.

 

Characters:

I'm just going to skip this for the moment.

 

What's good:

Inferno Cop was a series that was designed for the internet. The entirety of the series can be watched in around an hour's time, so it you have the time to kill, it's not a bad way to waste some time.

 

The humor is largely absurdist, reminding me somewhat of a Monty Python vibe. One minute the lead character is killing a bunch of bad guys, another moment he's traveled back in time, still another he's attempting to win a race and sacrificing the life of his teenage sidekick for a 1 million yen prize. There's lots of that sort of silliness, and frequently it's laugh out loud funny.

 

There's also the animation, which makes The Marvel Super Heroes look like a Disney masterwork in comparison. The visual style of using actual cardboard cutouts of the characters adds a lot of humor to the show.

 

What doesn't work:

 

Unfortunately, like a lot of Monty Python sketches, the transitions don't always work. The show tends to meander off the path it sets up in the beginning, and the loss of focus sometimes makes you wish they'd get back to the plot.

 

Fanservice Level:

 

None.

 

Perverted Character(s)

 

None.

 

Final Thoughts:

 

It's not a bad way to kill an hour. There are definitely some laughs. It's not the funniest thing I've ever seen, but it is amusing.

 

My rating: 7/10

 

Inferno Cop is available for streaming on Crunchyroll.com.

 

Title: Ojisan and Marshmallow

Episodes: 13 4 minute episodes

Category: Romantic Comedy

 

Plot - A woman competes for a co-workers affection against his one true love--marshmallows.

 

Additionally, a number of episodes also contain a brief "cooking with marshmallows" live action sequence.

 

Characters:

 

Hige-San - A rotund gentleman who loves marshmallows and is completely oblivious to the advances of Wakabayashi-kun.

 

Wakabayashi-Kun - An attractive young woman who has targeted Hige-San as a potential boyfriend. She frequently buys all of the marshmallows available to keep Hige-San from buying them and also to use them to try to tempt him into liaisons.

 

Mioko -- Another of Hige-San's co-workers, she falls in love with him after he inadvertently saves her from a groper on the subway.

 

What's good:

 

It's cute, it's funny, it's ridiculous.

 

Much of the humor of this series comes from the personality quirks of the characters, as many have eccentricities that affect their behavior, mostly in ways that are fairly silly and charming.

 

What doesn't work:

 

While I enjoyed some of the live action cooking sequences, at the same time most are too short to establish much of anything. I wouldn't say they hurt the show, just that they don't work as well as they might have.

 

Fanservice Level:

 

One of the episodes has the characters going to a hot springs, which means nudity (censored).

 

Perverted Character(s)

 

Nothing out of the ordinary.

 

Final Thoughts:

 

This is another short anime that can easily be watched in under an hour, so it's a good sampler if you think it's something you might be interested in. The show does have some laugh out loud moments as well, and I think it's worth your while to check it out.

 

My rating: 7/10

 

Ojisan and Marshmallow is available for streaming on Crunchyroll.com.

 

Title: Laid Back Camp

Episodes: 12 episodes

Category:  Slice of life

 

Plot - This is an anime about girls in high school who like to go winter camping and eat food.

 

Characters (borrowed from Wikipedia):

 

Nadeshiko Kagamihara -

An energetic girl who befriends Rin and joins the Outdoor Activities Circle.

 

Rin Shima -

A generally quiet girl who enjoys camping by herself.

 

Chiaki Oogaki -

President of the Outdoor Activities Circle.

 

Aoi Inuyama -

Chiaki's friend and member of the Outdoor Activities Circle.

 

Ena Saitou -

Rin's cheerful classmate.

 

Sakura Kagamihara - Nadeshiko's older sister. She loves driving.

 

Rin's Grandfather -

Rin's maternal grandfather. He loves outdoor camping and he is the one who influenced Rin on her camping hobby. He first appeared as the old man who camps alone Chiaki met when she is scouting for camp site. He serves as the narrator in the anime.

 

Minami Toba -

A substitute teacher who enters Nadeshiko's high school. She became the Outdoor Activities Circle's advisor as she prefers clubs that are not busy most of the time. She drinks alcohol a lot. She is first met by Nadeshiko and Rin during their camping while she is camping with her little sister.  

 

What's good:

 

I've used the words "sweet" and "cute" more than once to describe an anime. In order to avoid consistently repeating myself, I'm going to use the word "gentle" to describe this one.

 

This is essentially pretty much the definition of "moe", or in other words, "cute girls doing cute things". The show is extremely laid back and relaxed--however, at least for me, it avoids being boring.

 

There's not much conflict here, other than trying to get Rin to spend time camping with the other girls as she prefers to camp solo. There's occasional issues with the cost s of camping, but they're easily resolved in some manner.

 

There's also food. Lots and lots of food. In fact, aside from camping, food is the focus of this anime, and in a good way. I frequently found myself salivating watching some of the food being displayed as it was being prepared and later finished and enjoyed.

 

What doesn't work:

 

The show does move slowly, and as I said, there's little conflict. That might be something that doesn't work for some.

 

Fanservice Level:

 

Despite the numerous hot springs trips, there's nothing sexualized at all in this show.

 

Perverted Character(s)

 

None

 

Final Thoughts:

 

This may not be the funniest or most exciting anime, but it's a nice way to pass some time, especially if you're in the mood for something lighter in tone.

 

My rating: 7/10

 

Laid Back Camp  is available for streaming on Crunchyroll.com.
