Urawa no Usagi-chan

Another anime short that’s not worth watching. I suppose it could serve as a decent commercial, although some commercials might actually be better than this one.

Urawa no Usagi-chanThe artwork is nothing worth mentioning. I’m not even going to waste any more words on that.

The story? Give me a break. Some anime shorts actually have some sort of story that’s worth following. This isn’t one of them.

It’s the same as my previous anime short post; not at all worth watching.

Plot Summary: The happy-go-lucky daily campus lives of eight high school girls: Usagi, Tokiwa, Minami, Sakura, Midori, Kojika, Saiko, and Misono, in the Urawa-ku, Saitama Prefecture.

Ame-iro Cocoa

This anime short is even shorter than other anime shorts. What is the point of that? What is the point of creating a show with only 2 minutes per episode?

Ame-iro CocoaThe artwork is alright for an anime short. I honestly cannot knock ‘em for that. Even the characters look pretty nice.

With an anime short you’d be able to expect a quick laugh if the show is good enough. I honestly think that you’re only making it worse by making it even shorter than other anime shorts.

I cannot recommend this. I saw the first episode and I must say that I had no idea what I was watching. The comedy was rather dull and there is absolutely nothing interesting about this.

Plot Summary: Due to various circumstances, college freshman Aoi Tokura begins part-timing at the café “Rainy Color” run by Shion Koga and owned by Kōji Amami. Attending the café are the cool and handsome Keiichi Iwase and the confident Ryōta Sakurai. Aoi’s life gets a lot more hectic, but fun.

Hello!! Kiniro Mosaic

I did watch the first season. Not from start to finish, but quite a bit of it. Every time I had nothing to do or was bored out of my mind, I’d just fire up an episode.

Hello!! Kiniro MosaicThe artwork is alright. They really focussed on the characters to make them pop out. They were made to look adorable and I think they succeeded pretty well.

The problem, for me, is the story. It’s just not interesting enough for me. It’s not really my type of comedy, which makes it even harder to watch, which is why I only watched it when I was bored and had nothing else to watch.

To those that have seen the first season; go for it. To those that are looking for a show with a lot of cute girls; go for it. The rest might not enjoy this.

Plot Summary: Shinobu Omiya is a 15 year old girl who had once did a homestay in Great Britain when she was 10 years old. She met a blonde, extremely shy, English girl named Alice Cartalet. Once getting to know each other, and getting past the language barrier issue, the two became close friends. On Shinobu’s last day in England, Alice makes a promise that she will come visit Japan someday. 5 years later, Shinobu receives a letter from Alice stating that she is coming to Japan. And on the same day of receiving the letter, Alice appears at Shinobu’s school, revealing that she has transferred to her class and will be staying at her house.

Tesagure! Bukatsumono Spin-off Purupurun Sharumu to Asobou

I saw the preview a little while ago and I immediately knew that I wasn’t going to like this. I was once again spot-on. This has got to be one of the most uninteresting shows of this season.

Tesagure! Bukatsumono Spin-off Purupurun Sharumu to AsobouI always get nervous when the term “spin-off” is used. I started watching and I immediately wanted to cry. The artwork is so incredibly bad that it makes me want to stop watching anime altogether. It’s like they deliberately made those characters look so horrendous.

And the story isn’t that much better. A lot of bad comedy and pointless girly crap that you could never enjoy even if the artwork was any good.

Honestly, just pass this one by. Don’t even bother watching it, don’t bother to follow it because it’ll just result in you wasting your valuable time on this earth. You don’t want that, do you?

Plot Summary: A spin-off of the Tesagure! Bukatsumono series.

The iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls

Ah, it would seem that I forget about this one. I remember seeing the very first season and somehow liking it. It was okay and, although I did not see all of it before dropping it, I still think it was pretty amusing before I got bored with it.

The iDOLM@STER Cinderella GirlsThe artwork is still very nice. The characters all look cute and the level of detail is definitely not bad. It was always nice to look at and the characters always managed to find a way to keep me somewhat entertained.

The story is what made me stop watching the first season. It was about a group of girls trying to become idols. At one point it all got extremely predictable and obvious that I just stopped watching because I already knew that I was right about what was going to happen next. I hope that’s not the case with this one.

Can I recommend it? That’s a tough question. If the story is better than definitely yes. I always thought it was a pretty nice show at first. It’s pretty funny at times and it teaches a tiny bit about what it takes to become an idol without them throwing all kinds of girly crap in your face. So yeah, see for yourselves.

Plot Summary: There are many idols with long-established talent agency 346 Production. And now the company is starting a new program, the Cinderella Project!

Girls leading normal lives…

They are chosen to be aspiring idols and see another world for the first time in this Cinderella story. Can they all climb the stairs that lead to the palace?

The magic begins now…
