Cute, but bland.
7 May 2016 | by JHD_incSee all my reviews

It feels like 'yet another' slice-of-life comedy. This is coming from someone who considers himself a fan of the genre. Sure, a show doesn't necessarily need to be innovative to be enjoyable (especially in a genre as saturated as this one), but it does need a bit of extra to get you hooked. This show tries to shake things up a bit by adding some foreign (English) characters, creating a bit of new perspective. But despite those efforts it fails to hold your interests.

The foreign perspective could have been a nice touch if had been played out more. But as it stands the show underutilizes its one discerning factor and instead mostly follows same-old, same-old procedure. Again, not necessarily a bad thing, but it does mean the show needs another way to grab the viewer. Which, unfortunately, it doesn't.

The girls are cute. Of course they are, they always are. (Though their high-pitches voices can get on your nerves.) But there is very little chemistry between the characters, their interactions never resonate. I realize not all shows can be K-On! (my personal favourite when it comes to group- dynamics), but this one just seemed to go through the motions. It never reaches out of the screen and moves you, either when it tries to be endearing or funny.

I guess my final verdict would be; the show isn't actually bad, it just doesn't have anything that's actually good. It's rather bland. If you're simply hunkering for something cute and have exhausted the rest of your collection, sure, go ahead, watch this one. It will fill the time until something better comes along just fine. But if you're looking something with more of an edge or depth, keep looking.

P.S. This review is based on the first 5 episodes (40% of the total). My apologies if the show makes some major course-corrections after that.
