Good evening~ Took me a day to choose something to post about, then finally decided, sigh, i need to complete my backlogs faster.
Originated from a LN, lasted for 12 volumes from 2009-2014. There is a ton of prequel OVAs but i didnt bother watching them. Anime lasted for 2 seasons of 12 eps and 3 OVAs.
Storyline is both good and bad. Season 1 was very entertaining, legit comedy, with a very screwed up romance chain. I laughed damn hard. The unique points about this show is that they used H. P. Lovecraft’s works as a base and modified it pretty nicely. The addition of more extraterrestrials, with some yuris and yaois here and there, traps also exists, ah quite a combination for me. Season 2 came and everything slowly turning episodic and repetitive for me. Even tho it feels a bit bland but the laughs are still there. It overall felts a bit like its right in the middle of Nisekoi and To Love-ru. Nothing much happens, Xebec loves to make these types of shows. All the OVAs are all pretty much fanservice, was hoping for a proper conclusion but sigh, nothing happens.
Animations by Xebec, its about the same level as Motto To Love-ru onwards. Character designs are a mixed bag, Nyaruko took me awhile to get used to. Combat scenes are not really the main focus of the show but it was done pretty nicely.
Music is a mess, S1 OP was nice, S2 onwards is a decline to the abyss.
VAs cast are pretty nice. Kitamura Eri, Asumi Kana, Matsuki Miyu, Kugimiya Rie, Seki, Tomokazu, Hisakawa Aya, Hatano Wataru, Otsubo Yuka, Yuzuki Ryoka, Arai Satomi, Kouda Mariko, Kataoka Azusa, Mikami Shiori. Not bad overall, but choosing KitaEri to voice a guy character is a big mistake even tho she can voice it very well.
Story: 8/10 (S1), 7/10 (S2, OVAs)
Music: 8/10 (S1), 6/10 (S2, OVAs)
Recommended? Not really, its very hard to get people to actually enjoy this show nicely. Maybe for people who doesnt take this show seriously for its comedy. This show can be quite a mess for most people.
