KONOSUBA -God’s blessing on this wonderful world!

This anime is sold as an adventure, fantasy where a young man dies and is transported to another world by a goddess right after death. From the anime artwork, this anime looks to be a harem anime.

After watching it, it draws from the video game anime sub-genre. The parallel universe seems to be a RPG video game. The first episode is pretty generic with the only plot being to defeat a monster, and there wasn’t much character building.

There isn’t much more to say about this anime at this point hopefully more episodes there will be a glimmer of character development.

Mahou Shoujo Nante Mouiidesukara

I have two words for the summary of this anime Magical Girl. This does seem to be a magical girl anime. Her outfit, according to the summary, is a bathing suit. The art style appears to be very shojou, and it seems to be aimed towards girls. There are few magical girl animes that I like but I’m will to try this.

This anime is a short anime, with the episodes only running for 4 minutes at a time. It thankfully gives an explanation as to why the parents aren’t around, her father works 21 hrs a day every day apparently. I can’t really say anything good or bad about the anime. It is a standard magical girl anime. you have the magical girl costume, with the magical creature that leads the girl through learning about her powers.

Since the episodes are short, only watching two really doesn’t give you much insight into the anime.

Myriad Colors Phantom World

The summary doesn’t tell you much about this anime. It seems to be an action anime with three girls being the leads, and there being some type of enemies called phantoms. Yeah the summary is vague, but I’m assuming it’s going to something similar to a military anime.

After watching the show the it’s an action fantasy fan-service anime. It follows the under dogs of the academy. Every one who attends the academy has special abilities that allow them to fight the phantoms. All the characters are high schoolers, so they go to school as per normal as well as defeat phantoms.

The art style and the theme song of the beginning are very interesting. The character design is very similar to a lot of action animes. Though the phantom designs are awesome and very unique. I do like the anime’s concept but it might not be the anime for me.

Similar to the an earlier anime on this list, this is another magical girl anime, but it’s mixed with an slice of life idol anime. The costumes are more frilly on the art work, which makes it appear to be another shojou anime.

So the three girls that gets given powers are all idols, though as of the first anime there is only one. The enemy is very silly in the first episode. I would best describe this anime’s comedy style as slap stick. The costumes are very cute however, and they depict the character’s personalities very well.

The art style flows between 3d and 2d, which for an oldie like me is still weird. The dance scenes as well as the fight scenes are in 3d and the rest are in 2d. The colours are very bright and follow the style of other magical girl animes. I will not be continuing to watch this anime it’s really not my style.

Ojisan and Marshmallow

So this anime is very much as slice of life romance comedy anime, the main character loves marshmallows and a woman who’s in this office loves him. The anime’s episodes are very short, only three and a half minutes long, but they are very funny.

The art style reminds me of the anime I can’t understand what my husband is saying. I quite like how the anime is fast paced but at the same time only circles around the two main characters interactions. I will definitely be watching this anime again
