(One episode watched):

I guess if I lived in Japan I would know who Miss Monochrome is, since I read somewhere that this anime is an attempt to expand on an already popular character (voiced by popular VA Horie Yui) who has made a mark in some other media. But since I don't, this show can't just ride on the popularity of the character, and instead must offer me something worth watching. And so far I don't think it does. For one thing, I had assumed that if Miss Monochrome was a big deal, a good deal of talent and effort would be devoted to her anime, but apparently not--it isn't even anything more than a short, whereas I had assumed this would be a 23-odd minute series. Being a short, no time is wasted on explaining who Miss Monochrome is (an alien?), and as a result I have little idea what's going on. For some reason she seems to have an intelligent Roomba automatic vacuum cleaner as a friend. But this struck me as more of a silly than a funny show, and silliness alone isn't good enough to persuade me to watch. The show doesn't offend me in any way, it just leaves me disappointed. Perhaps one 5-minute episode doesn't give the makers enough of a chance to set the story up, so I'll watch episode two as well; but my expectations will be a good deal lower, and if this show doesn't improve significantly I'll be finished with it.
