Joukamachi no Dandelion

I remember several people sending me private messages to keep an eye out for Joukamachi no Dandelion. It was supposedly to be quite funny and quite good. In the end I feel a little disappointed to be very honest.

Joukamachi no DandelionThe artwork isn’t really the problem. A lot of good studios have been working on this and it looks alright. The characters, although a little plain, look nice and the level of detail isn’t that bad.

The problem, I think, would be the story. We have a big family of teenagers all capable of using their own supernatural power and their father is the kind of their country. Farfetched doesn’t begin to describe how strange this story is.

Comedy fans might like this, I think. The story is so strange that I’m not sure when to laugh? When is it supposed to be funny? Is it funny that Akane, a shy character, doesn’t like to go out in public? Is it funny that her siblings are all fighting for the throne? I fail to see it.

Plot Summary: The everyday lives of the nine super-powered siblings of the royal family are monitored by more than 200 surveillance cameras and broadcast nationwide. The people of the nation who are watching the broadcast will have the ability to elect the next monarch. Akane is the third-oldest sister who can manipulate gravity. She is shy and desperately does not want to be caught on camera.
