Full disclosure, I live in Japan and just purchased the original game for my PS Vita to play in Japanese sometime later this year or maybe around the Christmas holiday.
So seeing everyone bemoaning Conception online, I decided to check it out. After seeing it, the art isn’t that bad, no more so than other anime, has the Re:Zero influences, and this is significantly less brazen than say High School DxD. So to those saying that this is terrible or garbage, have several seats. I’m not defending it, but I don’t believe that Conception deserves the hate it is getting online. In fact, those decrying it online really have no one to blame other than themselves for not reading beyond the intro written on most websites. There is a whole game that came out like 7 years ago, if you don’t read and go in blind, don’t complain.
The story is average to be honest, but it’s still SIGNIFICANTLY better already than that awful Hakuren Haou anime. It doesn’t seem anything worse than High School DxD and I find the little racoon thing funny. It will be more interesting when more girls appear and they actually start hitting dungeons. It’s nothing new but it’s aight and I will keep watching. Let’s see what this series does.
Speaking of isekai, since this genre tends to have the most adamantly defensive fans, I am quite surprised to see this show has none. Where are you all hiding?
So you don’t have a daughter?
Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai, or just “that new Bunny Girl anime”, is shaping up to be a weird one. Sure, we totally got the sexy teen in a bunny suit last week, but now we’re dealing with quantum physics, a seemingly love story (with chances of a jealous imouto around the corner, but also with a new lady introduced this week), and a lot of drama. Yeah, I’m sure some heads are exploding and not just because of the sexy bunny suit…
You see, we have a thread of urban legends that seem too real, and a former actress now turned into an invisible girl. But why is Mai invisible for most people, and why is Sakuta able to see her? And why is the bunny theme so important here?
Perhaps the most intriguing part is the relationship between Mai and his mother, who also happens to be her manager. When Mai and Sakuta were about to confront her, we learn that Mai is not only invisible but unexistent too, since her mother doesn’t remember her… and she even denies having a daughter! So here we are, with a non-dealt paradox: how can Mai exist if she has no mother? Maybe Mai is not who she says, or maybe we’re also victims of a distorted story. I could bet Sakuta wouldn’t care as long as he can be around this dreamy girl though, but what about you? What’s your take on the whole invisible bunny thing? All I know is that an invisible actress has no future in the industry… but maybe she can try as a voice actress? LOL!
Now that fall anime has kicked off, what are you watching? Be sure to let us know in the comments below!
