Watch as Yuki navigates normal high school life, like Christmas parties, festivals, and feelings. And when another side of Yuki comes out will full-force, will her chances with Kyon be obliterated?
The one I have been waiting for. Since watching The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, I found myself watching Slice of Life stuff more often for some reason but definitely didn't find much on par with it. I decided not to watch the second series because of the silly things such as Endless Eight, but may get round to it at some point. It also triggered my love for the "Dandere" character description which fit Nagato Yuki extremely well. Even Today, she is one of my favourite anime characters. Now, I dont read Manga too much, but found the first issue of Nagato Yuki and without second thought gave it a buy. After the read, I was a little confused yet somewhat motivated. Yuki is talking and being what she wasnt in Haruhi. This may make some people extremely upset and will not like this series at all, but I liked this new approach. It is a spin off after all. Remembering this is a spin off, this is a more cute version of Haruhi and aims differently. This is definitely not for everyone, and many will be leaving after the first episode. But I can promise, this series will be ridiculously cute, and if you are into the spin-offs, this will be a good one. Rating: 3.5/5 (Not for everyone and not too great, This series wont please everyone, but will please the Manga readers thoroughly)
Are u ready lads and gals???Are u here by mistake?Then please go ahead and drink some absinthe and get a nice blackout..Forget u ever got here..For the rest of us who saw the whole damn franchise and ended up here waiting for something better than the endless 8 fiasco...OH DEAR LORD DELIVER US FROM EVIL. Let's kick off with the animation shall we?It's eye watering bad.For some reason the studio thought in their infinite wisdom to not bother at all it seems..Kinda sums up the whole anime in fact but we'll get there soon..Some characters,like say Haruhi are exactly perfect,just like u remember them from the previous efforts...The rest,like say Kyon are like they were drawn by me..And i really suck at it..I can't draw a fuckin circle for god's sake.And that's ok cause i don't have anything to do with animes...But a studio making such a big huss of it..Oh yes it's a big deal. Storywise i can't explain what might have happened..I mean with the movie things seemed to be on the right track..This is bland,no hooks,nothing to keep u glued to the screen..In all truth i couldn't tell it apart from the crappiest romance ecchi anime..And here is the thing..With crappy ecchi animes u know what to expect..This is supposed to be,according to some idiots called fans the second coming..Let me tell u here and now that it isn't..Or if it is indeed the second coming i looks suspiciously like a dog parting its' breakfast.. Onto another glaring issue..The voices and the movements of the lips were out of place..I think there were times where sound was reaching my ears and the the characters were following much later..Characters.....Onto the last straw...The only hook in this anime was Haruhi..Every character is watered down.It was like watching them sky diving without safety equipment.Sure some characters are getting more screentime but if u take all the good things out of every single character and throwing them in the bin and neutering them in the process what good does it do if one or 2 characters got more screentime.. I'm not being captain horrid here..This anime sucks..Just like that.
For a video review, check out my Youtube channel. Link on my profile page. This is the third part off a 3 part review of the Haruhi Suzumiya franchise. Positive *So I liked again that this spin-off is very intertwined with both the movie and the original anime with lot’s of references to both of them. *I also liked the fact that some characters that we don’t get to see a lot in the original anime like Asakura and Tsuruya now get a lot more screen time. Asakura is even one of the main characters of this anime. Negative But let me tell you something, I was quite excited for this anime because my favorite character Nagato would be the main heroine and it would take place in this super interesting alternate universe so what could go wrong? Well a lot it seems. Let me just dive straight into everything that I disliked about this anime. *First off, if there is another animation studio I would get it if all the characters were animated differently but why are Kyon, Nagato and Koizumi the only characters who are animated differently while all the other ones are animated exactly the same as in the original anime? *Speaking off the characters: What did you do to my beloved Nagato? Yes I wanted her to have more emotions and feelings as in the movie but not like this. In this spin-off she’s just plain dumb and it bothered me from the very first episode. *Next up: the story. I’m still searching for the main storyline in this anime. When I got to episode 11 I thought that the main story was finally starting but about 3 episodes later it’s already finished and we return the same boringness that were the first 10 episodes. What a waste of a good opportunity to write an interesting storyline. *And the end of the anime topped it all of. What was that ending? When the anime ended at episode 16 I didn’t even notice that it had ended. I only found it out 2 weeks later when I was making my schedule for september and I was looking at Anichart when which anime would end. There I saw that Nagato had ended at episode 16 and I was like What? This is the most bizarre and random ending I’ve seen till today. And than there was the scene after the final credits. What was that all about? This isn’t really a spoiler so keep on reading. That scene is the exact same sequence that we get to see at the start of every episode of the Endless 8 so I don’t get it. *But my biggest problem with this anime was that it didn’t delivered what it promised. I think every Haruhi fan went into anime thinking Yes finally we will see Kyon and Nagato get together and form a couple. And that doesn’t happen, they don’t become a couple. What was the whole point of this anime if you don’t for fill what you had promised the viewers? Conclusion So as a conclusion, I was so disappointed by this anime. It was so extremely boring that I didn’t even noticed it had ended at episode 16 and it didn’t deliver the romance that we were hoping for. So I’m going to rate The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan at 1,5 stars. My advice is: watch the original anime so that you can enjoy the movie and just forget this spin-off.
