Kannagi

Jan 9, 2010

Contrary to what some may think from reading the synopsis, there is actually less plot involved in Kannagi than you think. While there is a loose underlying theme and storyline, the bulk of the series focuses on comedy and humor, with just a touch of drama added in here and there. This is by no means a negative aspect of Kannagi, as it still finds its niche as your standard comedy flick with characters that you can attach to; they're developed sufficiently, though perhaps not to the extent seen in many drama animes out there. And while there are a few moments in the anime that can mislead the viewer's expectations of what is to come next, namely the beginning, the story eventually balances out and becomes focused mostly on a variety of forms of humor.

On the other hand, Kannagi does feature a bit of dramatic development at the beginning and towards the end of the series, and viewers who latch onto those aspects of the storyline may interpret the anime as a drama with a bunch of comedy filler in-between. It really depends on the viewer's interpretation of the anime as whether it's primarily a comedy or a drama. In my case, I find the anime's blend of the two genres balanced and enjoyable.
