Yeah it’s three years old. Yeah I’m a little late to this party. Don’t care. It showed up on Netflix so I watched it. Don’t make my mistake.
Yuna is a show that I would encourage all aspiring anime writers to watch. Not because it does anything correctly, but because if this mash-up of every other anime you’ve seen in this genre can get picked up, drawn and aired yours can as well.
Demi-chan is your typical slice-of-school-life series that really doesn’t stretch much as far as that theme goes. It doesn’t break any boundaries and you could even call it formulaic to an extent. Group of characters get thrown together and friendships happen. You’ve seen that before. You’ll see that again. Let’s move on.
How in the hell does Monster Musume has a full orchestral piece written for it’s opening? Can you hear the tremolo of the strings come in the first second? The live flutes dancing around in between the singing of papi-chan and snake-lover?
I really want to meet the middle aged Japanese man in his three piece suit who approved the funding of this decadent piece of art. I can see him as speaks to his subordinates as they explain that they need to hire 70 professional musicians for their new anime that revolves around a couple of monster girls that happen to loose their close, lay eggs and a bunch of other things. Either way, good job salaryman. You’re my new hero.
Try to explain the plot of Youjo Senki to a non-anime watcher. It’s nearly impossible without sounding like a raving maniac. The premise of the show should never work, and yet it does. It works. It works well. It’s my favorite series of the season by a long shot and I can’t say I really know why.
