This is probably the worst anime I've seen since Naria Girls, but I love the cute character designs and bright colors.
Anybody else "enjoying" this mess?

For a moment there, I could've sworn someone was talking shit about Naria Girls. Silly me.

Back to urahara, I watched the first episode and was moderately tempted to watch more, but I really don't think it's for me. The unconventional aesthetics I'm fine with, I'm simply not interested in any of what it appeared to be about.

That seems a little harsh. I was worried at the start that it was going to be another Flip Flappers, but so far I think it's avoided being offensively bad. Just boring; it's like an otherwise generic and forgettable children's show, but with a coat of crazy aesthetics.
I kept watching past episode 3 because of the implication that maybe Misa was actually evil and there would be some sudden dark twist, but no. At this point, I'm not sure whether to drop it or just keep watching out of habit. Pretty much the definition of a 5/10 series in my opinion.
Oni-chan is really cute though.

 No.22992

It's mediocre but it's not the worst anime I've seen.

Hang on, mate. Flip Flappers was awesome, if admittedly a bit pretentious.

I agree with you about Urahara though. It's not bad so much as intensely "meh." I'm at episode six now; I'm going to keep watching.

Honestly, I kind of enjoyed Naria Girls. But it wasn't what you'd call good.

What did you find awesome about Flip Flappers? It had a great hook and a pretty artstyle, but the plot, tone, and character arcs were all totally incoherent. I don't even remember a lot of what happened in the middle, just that I kept waiting for it to start making sense, and then it ended with mommy issues or something. It left me with the impression that the director and/or writers tried to come up with each week's plot on the fly, and failed miserably.

 No.22998

>>22995
Something being intensely meh is probably worse than it being actively bad. At least you remember something that's really fucking bad.

I too was confused by the overall plot and disappointed with the ending, but I really enjoyed the ride (and yuri is great). I've actually been thinking about watching it again to see if it's really great or just 2deep4u with awesome visuals.

>>22998
I feel like Urahara is visually interesting enough that I'll remember it even though I probably won't remember the characters or what they were doing (or why). Hell, I'm not really sure what it's about now.
Anyway, I think it's good to watch mediocre/bad anime now and then to keep from taking the good stuff for granted.

>Hell, I'm not really sure what it's about now.
If you take away the visuals, it's a completely generic mahou shoujo. Girl/mascot chara falls from space, gives the protags a magic artifact that lets them transform, enemies that are kind enough to attack only one at a time and have an obvious weakness show up every week on the dot, protags beat them with the power of friendship, back to the ststus quo, etc, etc. In this week's episode, what overarching plot there is finally made a proper appearance, but I guarantee it'll turn out to be nothing important in the end.
So if it's "about" anything at all, I guess it's about how having supportive friends is important or something equally sappy.

Well I mean, the show is for kids right? they're probably happy enough with the monster of the week forma, maybe they're just trying to rehash the old Mahou Shoujo formula for a new generation to enjoy.

That's the problem. It feels so generic. I think kids (and adults who like anime for little girls) would be more entertained by Precure. It manages to have fun stories every episode with characters that are distinct from each other. And, (I can't believe I'm saying this) it does a better job of hiding how cheap the animation is.

 No.23018

>>23007
To add to >>23017, I'm not sure who Urahara is for because it doesn't forge enough of an identity. For all its bright colors, it seems muted.
At least Misa is cute.

I know it sounds weird, but I think that was one of the things that I liked most about the anime. It was one of the most "dreamlike" anime I've seen.

 No.23024

>>23022
That doesn't sound weird at all. I felt the same way about it, but couldn't quite put it into words. The storytelling style fits the often surreal nature of the show.

Hmm, it picked up a little bit this week, but episode 7 is a hell of a time to suddenly start getting interesting.

Yeah, I think it got way better very suddenly. We've got the characters doubting themselves and each other and the welcome (but unsurprising) revelation that Misa is a-near. I'm actually interested in where this is going now.

>>22998
Bad is just bad. When something's mediocre, it's a lot easier to imagine it being good; that always makes it worse for me.

God help me, I'm starting to enjoy this.
What happened to Misa and her crustacean friend?

Huh, that felt like a penultimate episode, but supposedly there are three left. More twists on the way, or just a really drawn-out finale?

 No.23275

>>23273
The flashback about them becoming friends was really cute. I'd compliment Rito's drawings all day if she kept making that face.
Yeah, it feels like they're ending the show early. I've really grown to enjoy Urahara despite its terrible start (well, really, first half), so I fervently hope it manages to stick the ending.

It's slowly becoming enjoyable, but it got enjoyable a bit late, honestly. Kind of like Flip Flappers except reversed, I suppose?

It seems like way more shows start well and screw up the ending than the other way around.

How did that M14 pasta go? "Where do you think you're going, nerd boy?"
Anyway, my fears from last week were assuaged, looks like it can still pull off a pretty okay ending.

Welp, that's that. It kinda grew on me over the course of the season, but ultimately I still can't say it was more than a 5/10. Maybe it would have been if I were a middle-school girl.
Great end cards though, I wish more series did that.

 No.23578

>>23577
It was the very definition of a mediocre anime. It wasn't bad and it wasn't a complete pain to sit through but it certainly won't be something I remember when people ask me what I watched in Autumn 2017.

 No.23579

I really liked that they brought back the cat from the first episode. That was a nice way of tying the whole series together.
