It’s a show about lesbians doing cute things while being animated by Dogakobo. So this means that it’s going have more nonsense key frames that add gravity and bounce to hair, ties, frills, and potentially boobs. I find it hilarious that actions shows are now getting the short of it all, while shows like Love Lab and Stella Jogakuin Koutouka C3-bu are getting rather well done angle work, composition, and choreography. Dangan Ronpa is going to have to pull some crazy shenanigans if the only thing people can take away from it is that it’s a “serious” anime because of despair and death, while looking almost as bad as Togainu no Chi.
Okay, fine. At least Dangan Ronpa isn’t BL.
On a lighter note, Love Lab has some interesting sound effects and visual gags. That first himitsu reveal was predictable.. but the sounds that went with it had me biting my wrist in laughter. I guess slapstick comedy is still effective on me. Or perhaps Dogakobo is simply doing it right? We’ve got three episodes to go and see if they’re still the masters of artful, light-hearted, otaku pandering, lesbian antics. Hopefully minus the Chinatsu Tier Artworks.
It’s pretty obvious if you’re going to like the show. And it won’t be converting anyone unless you can somehow appreciate that it’ll get more key frames than our typical seasonal shonen series.
