So I watched Kamisama Dolls’s first episode. The story was ab-
Hahaha who am I kidding? This isn’t going down like this. This isn’t an anime blog. (I sure hope so).
I sure sound arrogant when saying this while I’m not really.
The thing that got my attention is how it opens with university students at a party. I like this scene, not because of the scene itself (though main guy singing LINDA LINDA was awesome), but because of the current online anime community ( well at least the English speaking one).
Please, allow me to explain: I’d bet my lunch someone said while blogging this show or talking about it or whatever:
“University students! Drinking beer!! Since when have I seen this in anime?”
The first thing that comes to my mind is pitying the guy. My second thought is wondering if he/she was serious or only said it to sound cool, or both.
Long story short, my point is unless you’re an “anime fan” since less than five years ago or/and got brainwashed by things like “anime these days is moe crap”, you shouldn’t be saying things like this…
You should know that there isn’t only “moe” shows.
You should know that there isn’t only anime with high school students, etc etc.
And you should know you’re not forced to only watch airing shows.
Back to the show itself, I don’t have any problems with anything right now and I liked this first episode. Except for the little sister which I find annoying, and the story looks generic to me but I don’t have a problem with that if it’s done right. It’s funny how I don’t like most kids both in real life and anime. I bet she will die to put some shock on the main guy or will suffer a lot.
The only thing I honestly didn’t like is the fact that female character are so whiiiiiiiiiiiite…
The “dolls” in the title actually refers to female characters right.
I like the op & ed a lot by Ishikawa Chiaki. PETO BOTORU.
I guess what I just wrote could be called “my first impressions” about the show I guess. That’s what animeblogs do though. Urgh.
Just in case, I do not have some burning hate against anime blogs or anything, I just don’t like doing what someone else is doing already. Especially if they’re doing it wonderfully, like, RandomC in my opinion
