Ryuuou no Oshigoto!
(One-and-a-half episodes watched):|
My first reaction to this show was 'why in the world would anybody want to make an anime about a teenage Shogi prodigy while the second season of the excellent Sangatsu no Lion is currently running'? The answer, as it turned out, was because this show is pure comedy without a hint of drama, and therefore not a direct competitor. While the jokes were by no means uproariously funny (and indeed, could be rather trite and predictable), I must admit that this show has a sort of infectious silliness and good humor to it. It sort of makes you smile and laugh even when you feel you should be rolling your eyes. I suppose you can always do both. The signs are that it may be a harem or something close. This show is looking like more fun than the average comedy anime, but just barely; my guess is that if I watched the entire series I would award it a 'Watch' rating. I don't sense the plot being all that sophisticated, which might have compensated for the so-so humor. I think I will skip this one since it seems OK but by no means brilliant, and my time is precious.
