College student meets and falls in "love" with her younger sister's friend. Okay. So, this was made by the same studio that released UzaMaid a year ago, and it does show. For starters, I don't have much issue with the main plot namely because it's a show. It doesn't mean that it's suggesting that actual cases of pedophilia are funny. The show makes it clear that there is an inherent creepiness towards that concept, and it never gets to the same extent that UzaMaid did when it used Lolita as its main schtick. With that out of the way, what do I think of the show? Let's start with the characters. Miyako Hoshino is the protagonist of the series. A college student, Miyako is someone who hardly leaves her home due to her ineptitude with socializing. Really, she's almost as bad at it as Tomoko from WataMote, which was actually one of the reasons as to why I was never able to finish that show. It just really made me think about how bad I was (and still kind of am) with being sociable with other people. To describe it, Miyako has anxiety about going out, about interacting with others, has little to no social skills. However, at the same time, Miyako as a character isn't that interesting. She's not really that funny. Even when she starts to squee over Hana, she is restrained with it. She's really the polar opposite of UzaMaid's Tsubame. Even when there are some nuggets of intrigue to her such as her being skilled with making sweets or hand-crafting cosplay outfits, she is otherwise bland. Hana is the coprotagonist, the eponymous "angel" in the title. Hana is a more stoical girl who quickly picks up on Miyako's creepiness regarding herself, but she goes along with wearing Miyako's cosplay outfits in return for various sweets. Hana serves more as the straight man...well, girl, where she gives the right reactions towards not only Miyako, but Hinata, Noa, and others. The problem with her, however, is that much like Miyako, she can be bland. She's there to be the reluctant modeler. She does mention once that she was an only child, which could potentially lead towards more development into Hana's life to maybe explain why she would come off as cold and abrasive at times. Hinata, is probably the only truly fascinating character. The younger sister of Miyako, she loves her sister unconditionally whilst not knowing why exactly she does. She is a very energetic fifth grader who provides most of the laughs in the show. Heck, her first appearance sees her galloping towards Miyako's room and jumping on her bed, subsequently waking and frightening her, and then heads to school as if nothing had happened. Hinata comes off as wholly childish with how she misunderstands her sister's interest in Hana, or how she lacks Hana's more mature attributes. My only problem there is she could lean towards being annoying at times, but otherwise, she does pull her own weight. Noa has only one character trait: she is a narcissist obsessed with being "cute" sometimes to even outdo Hana in terms of cuteness. Honestly out of the main cast, Noa would be the least likable. She's haughty, self-centered, and annoying. Maybe they could have some explanation down the line that would provide insight into Noa's motivations, but I doubt that. She can also be pretty manipulative, having caught Miyako wearing one of her cosplay outfits and then blackmailing her. On the opposite side, she does show some indication that she is developing feelings for Hinata, who often provides her with emotional support, which I actually found pretty cute. There are a few other characters that I don't really have any feelings on. Mrs. Hoshino is funny, though she doesn't appear too often. Koyori and Kana are class representatives of the main trio. Koyori reminded me heavily of Satania from Gabriel DropOut (and I was actually informed that Kana was actually voiced by the actress who played her). Koyori tries to be someone that people could depend on...but she has continuous bad luck, or she needs help herself. Kanon is kind, sweet, and often more lucky than her best friend. Of the two, Koyori is honestly more entertaining. They seem to also be developing into a little something more. Humor wise, the show often misses more than it hits. It's honestly pretty mediocre. Miyako's more restrained in her actions and lacks the over-the-top prowess that Tsubame had. Other potential comedic moments are also underscored because they lack that sting to them. As for music...it's also bland and forgettable. The opening sounds pretty and is genuinely catchy, but in the likes of other slice of life openings such as Yuru Yuri or Uchi No Maid, it comes off as less memorable. The ending theme is also mediocre. As for animation, it's okay. It isn't anything too special. Overall, WATATEN!: an Angel Flew Down to Me is unfortunately more in the mediocre bin. While some of the characters are interesting, they lack depth or are reduced to one character trait. The humor isn't as biting, and it doesn't push the envelope much like UzaMaid did. It's a show that is better off as white noise.


Attempt to hide perversion with cuteness, FAILURE. College girl is attracted to elementary school girl. Miyako sets her sights on her little sister’s {Hinata} friend (Hana) within the first five minutes of the anime. By the first five minutes of episode 2 she has another victim (Nao) who actually turns out to be on par with Miyoko's perversions. Nao is confident in her looks and her ability to make other people do what she wants because she’s “cute”. Miyako’s passion is by far and large Hana and Noa attempts to divert her attention which results in a three-way-pervert-relationship. Miyako wants Hana. Nao wants to mess with Miyako. Hana wants Miyako’s baked goods. -- Miyako bribes Hana with sweets to win the girls affection. Hana’s love for food - sweets in particular - makes her susceptible to Miyako’s fetish. Miyako’s perverse interest in Hana takes many forms: Takes photographs of her from the ground/pany shots, and in her swimsuit. Dresses her up like a doll/cosplay. Has her little sister perform kabedon upon Hana. Attempts to bathe with her. Plants herself in the middle during Hinata and Hana’s sleepovers/sleeps in between them. Desires to rub her skin. Sweats and imagines perverted things when in close quarters with her. Gets physically and physiologically aroused when hugged by her. Appreciates and smiles when she gets slapped by her for making her embarrassed. Gushes over her in her swimsuit. Stalks her. Constantly lies about her intentions. -- The one thing this anime doesn’t delve into is incest. It’s clear throughout the anime that Miyoko does not have perverted thoughts about Hinata. Though it would not surprise this reviewer if such a relationship developed offscreen/in a future season. -- Overall this “cutesy” anime is not entertaining nor does it have any meaningful story or message to convey. It is eww through and through.
