This is dounjin? It most certainly is! The simple, almost flat (not in chest size – don’t go there) character drawings not to mention personalities and not so impressive plot (but that’s all right) smell like doujin, which is all right if it gives me what I want…uh, don’t ask, you don’t wanna know (read: BOOBS)… But here’s something I would like to get cleared before asking the in depth questions of how they got the funding to get big names in seiyuu-dom to voice act –
WHAT THE HELL IS WITH THAT BOOMERANG STUCK IN HER HEAD??? Did some Maoi tried to hunt her down and struck her with a boomerang and left her as she was??? I mean, OK, I guess she’s a fairy or something…Like I don’t know, a boomerang fairy??? Do they have that in Japan?
OK, now I got that out of my chest, let’s consider some serious questions. First, I would like to know how they got Kikuko-sama, Rierie, Sawashiro Miyuki, Nakahara Mai and a couple others on board? Is this production so interesting and so great?
Aside from a bunch of lolis that I read are few hundred years old? Nothing. Again, the background is pretty good, but with CG that’s not incredibly difficult for people who do it a lot, but the characters are flat. I don’t wanna say it but even the seiyuu’s actings were a little flat, except Rierie, who always manage to do maid characters well, and Kikuko-sama, who makes a great story-telling oneesan. But most of all…
Damn, the drawing is bad. But hey, this is doujinshi group so that’s to be expected. I’m just shocked that professional, big name seiyuus would bother with this. How much did this doujin group pay them, or, how did they get the money for it?
But you know, if I were in a doujin group, this would be a dream come true. Can you imagine if the Genshiken manga/anime continued with the plot that somehow they made enough money to hire professional seiyuu? I guess that didn’t happen because nobody though that was possible in real world, which Genshiken was a fictional reflection of…
Well, Touhou did it. I just wish the animation was better. At least their dream came true, but their animation and character design really must improve. It really looked like they put everything into the background creation but skimped out on character designs. One word, FLAT. And this time I mean that kind of flat as well as the 2D like aspect of the drawings.
I’ll watch more of it for the seiyuus, maybe.
