I’m actually pretty excited about this. Probably cause it’s going to be bad? Anyways. On with it.
Well, I kinda am disappointed that they did such obvious characters. Would it have hurt to bring Sanae in? Well. Who knows how long they’ve been working on this. Maybe since before MoF. Hopefully the enxt one (?) will feature Sanae. Because a MoF episode would be bitchin. Cause it would have Hiiiiiiiina! Awesome.
But anywhos, Suika is adorable. There were alot of LOL moments. Like when Suika fell off or when Reimu slipped and all the bags fell and then that last one just fell AND especially when Suika went to go through the door and her horns got caught. I LOL’D. Good. I should hope an adaption would be full of laughs.
I think the voices, despite being very highly known, are really good. There were some points when I heard Rena coming through in Reimu but I think that was just something I imagined (but when she saw the donation box was gone and she maid that EH? noise I lol’d). I didn’t think Suika would be so… high-pitched but it still kinda fit. Yuugi would have a low, low voice now. It would be awesome. Aya’s voice wasn’t quite right. She sounded way too loli. And Remilia’s voice should be much lower despite her being the most loli of all the cast members. She has to have a mature, seductive voice.(Remi’s perfect voice is from the Innocent Key one) Sakuya is atleast right enough although the Innocent Key one is better too. Patchy’s voice was fine.
The best part was definitly how Marisa was making snide comments (well nto exactly snide) at every point. It sort of seems like Reimu should have been that slight voice of reason and Marisa bursting in. I’d think Marisa would be more comfortable bursting in on Patch than Reimu. But if her donation box is involved well than you better watch out. I wish there would have been a little more danmaku but Patchy and Reimu’s little fight was good enough.
I wonder when the next will come up. I was actually curious near the end. I was surprised Alice didn’t appear. That probably means it was her.
Overall I thought it was enjoyable unlike somebody else. It wasn’t super excting but it was enough. Atleast it didn’t focus on Reisen.
But, is just saying it’s better than the Side Story okay? On it’s own… if we had no bottom line… nothing to compare it too… there have been some MADs tat had been more consistent and slightly better. But I feel bad saying that. Reluctantly, I sort of actually loved this. In anycase, it looked better than the first season of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni.
