Three more shows to review, Seiken Tsukai no World Break, Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata, and Koufuku Graffiti. I’m trying to finish this season before the start of the next, but that’s today, so good job, me.

Seiken Tsukai no World Break
“Second Life”
If we’re putting together this season’s BATTLE SCHOOL shows, the bottom is certainly Fafnir, the middle Absolute, and the top World Break. Where Duo went with the Absolute Minimum on characters, World Break gave them some backstory and depth and then threw them forward into a world of writing magic. Not everything was solid, the story was rather plain, but for a twelve episode run, it was an impressive start, and worth a second season. I especially liked our Russian Moe.

Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata
After poking fun at the first episode being rife with relevant commentary in the state of video games, the series settled down to what amounted to a much more lighter KamiNomi without the supernatural elements. But frankly, as I rather predicted early on, it did not really get better.


With the director of Usagi Drop and Ore no Kanojo to Osananajimi ga Shuraba Sugiru, this has a 50/50 chance of being decent, depending on how they work with the premise of comics and such.

You can see definite signs of both in this show, and being that I wasn’t a big fan of the latter, the obvious signs pushed this down a little for me. It’s too plain, too generic, and too ham-fisted with its attempts to shove romantic love comedy in a small space, especially from the very first episode. I don’t have high hopes for this one.

It made some halfway-decent attempts in the middle to at least have fun with the process of developing the game, but frankly, in just watching two episodes of Shirobako, I feel that has more than surpassed the levels of interesting I got from a show about a show. Saekano just tries too hard to be like SNAFU, with subplots of Inu to Hasami wa Tsukaiyou. Can’t win em all.

Koufuku Graffiti
The primary ingredients of this meal were food and love, or love of food? Girls loving girls love food? Hell, I don’t know really, but it was essentially Food Porn: The Anime. A perfectly fine way to spend an afternoon viewing food-related reaction faces. There isn’t much to write about, really. So I won’t.
