Shangri-La 1

Kenichi Yoshida (novel)

Range Murata

Kumi Ishii

The transition from lineart to animated version is not too bad, but I prefer Yoshida’s design.

Overall, the episode didn’t fail, but it is unlikely that I’ll cover this anime…

  1. Could have been better. Really. About the character design preference, I like both Murata Range’s and Yoshida’s but I think Gonzo suits Murata Range more. If it was Bones though, Yoshida, for sure.

  2. Hmm, I’ll be checking out this episode later today. That green hair woman looks scary though. xD

    Regarding the lineart, my preference is for Yoshida’s design. The girl appeared less lolified (if there’s even such a word…lol)in the novel version.

    1. haha Momoko is great! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Yes, I also dislike the lolified version. The Murata’s lineart looks fine actually, but once you see animated version and her personality…

  3. I’ll give Kumi a B+ for the adaptation of the murata design. maybe after seeing the episode i might raise the grade!

    you were looking forward to this, now you say it’s unlikely. Is it the loli aspect??

    1. The adaptation was not too bad.

      Well, once you combine fanservice, slicing tanks and dodging bullets with boomerangs, hyperactive personality and schoolgirl outfit of the protagonist, and lolis with great powers, it will be not a pretty package… The only characters I like somewhat are Sayoko and Momoko. The whole thing reminds me of Yozakura Quartet…

      I might skim some further episodes for some May’n songs though.

  4. Okay… I’m not very optimistic about this one now ๐Ÿ˜€ but I’ll try it anyway.
    Although spaceships/mechas will be sorely missed to counteract the hyperactive loli effect. Tanks are good, but not that good.

  5. i already watched it..and it was ok…

    momoko was great fun though..LOL

    *btw is it ok i add joo to my blogroll..?:D
