WOAH. I normally try to avoid all caps as much as possible but WOAH.
Manga is manga, LNs are LNs, VNs are VNs and anime is anime. Obviously, when you adapt something from one medium to another you'll have to deal with some adaptation decay, that much is nigh inevitable. But I didn't expect Brain's Base to this this half assedly.
This gives a whole new meaning to 'frame by frame adaptation'. Normally I'd use it when trying to praise something but here... Obviously, you can't draw every single thing in manga. It's too time/space consuming. So if you see a panel with somebody in class and someone jumping out of a window in the next one you can figure out what happened in between.
But that's manga. There's not only no reason but also absolutely no excuse to do the same in anime. What the hell is up with these cuts? The scene transition is absolutely shittastic. Know what, I'll actually check who's directing this...
And sure enough, not only is he not a new face he worked on Kimi ni Todoke before. Which is pretty much the same thing. So why was there no problem with adapting KnT when this looks so bad? I won't even mention 'talking is a free action' syndrome since it has been around for decades and nobody found a good way to avoid it.
I'm the guy who kept saying 'Natsume this, Natsume that'. The seiyuu who voices Natsume is okay. I was afraid they'd pick someone with a 'am I kawaii uguu' voice and it is a bit of a problem but I can deal with that much I guess. Could have been a whole lot worse.
... Now, how many volumes did I read again...
