Finally took time to watch EveTaku’s subs of Tenri’s arc. The main problems with Kaminomi’s anime adaptation, for me, is its poor execution and the teenage feel of the characters. Looking at the character designs and comparing it with the manga, the anime counterparts always emanate a mature feel to them. The image of a grown-up. Compare and contrast to the manga’s candid, cartoony feel, the manga compels the viewer to simply sit back, relax and enjoy the show.
Well, recalling unpleasant things aside, taking away all that bias, I say that this arc was good. In fact, if I took away all my prejudice, I guess the Kaminomi anime series was decent overall. It followed the plot and progressed the plot in its own manner. Sure, it may have lacked the plot elements that Wakaki (and I) is so fond of but what the heck. The anime series did as it was told and delivered what was needed.
Well, a season 3 is over the horizon so I’ll be looking forward to looking back and recalling the captures that Keima did… But for the record, I have a feeling that the Jupiter Sisters won’t be coming out… Not just yet.
