(Five episodes watched):|
This show seemed to be more about humor than romance, which excused all the thoroughly unlikely coincidences that kept taking place. As usual, it wasn't LOL funny, but was OK. I thought early on that it would be largely about the romance between one main character and a certain girl, but after a couple episodes that particular thread seems to have faded away and episode five had nothing to do with it. That's a disappointment, because like the vast majority of recent anime comedies Nijiiro Days isn't funny enough to be worth watching just for the jokes (I don't recall laughing at all during episode five, except maybe once at the end), and therefore needs an ongoing and interesting story as well; but the signs are that it won't have one. Episodes of this show are about half as long as those of an average 23-minute series--and I find that I like that, because while watching I grow tired of this show pretty quickly. This is a show which I sort of pity, because it never offended me and seemed to have considerable potential at one point, but seems determined to remain shallow and unremarkable. I ultimately decided that it was not worth my time--which seems to have been the correct choice, since it turned out to be a two-season show.
