Since this was in my preview, I thought I should address the series briefly. I watched the premiere and yes, it isn’t as terrible as it sounds. In fact, it might be more not terrible than a couple of shows I did First Impressions posts on. But this season has worn me down, and I just can’t blog any more shows based on “It’s not as terrible as it sounds”. So my apologies.
I would, however, add one postscript – I do think there’s a point where the anime industry becomes way too inward-looking, and this series is good evidence that we’ve reached it.
