I know I shouldn't expect much from a reboot of a gag spin off of a show no one cared much about in the first place (even if it did work for nanoha) but holy fuck this was disappointing.

First thing that stuck out to me was the VA change. Komugi had a very distinctive voice and was in fact the character I associated that VA with the most, so it was very disappointing too see they got replaced. At times it feels like the new VA is trying to replicate Haruko's voice work but like much else in this anime it feels a bit generic.

I don't mind them trying to give the show a bit of a story and establish a normal life for the character, but it feels so cliche that I had a hard time telling if it was done on purpose to be ironic or if they were painting by numbers to play it safe. There's a few moments when they seemingly poke fun at magical girl anime tropes, yet for the most part embrace them.
It might just be a personal thing but I found most of the humor falls flat and feels uninspired. I kept asking myself if they were serious, while expecting some sort of twist.

oh and the art... could be better. aesthetically speaking I felt like I was watching something from 2004. I almost want to say the original looked better than this. There's a surprisingly high amount of 'QUALITY' moments for a first ep, and their attempts at mimicking the style of the original feel half hearted. In general I preferred the character and outfit designs from the original too and am not crazy about the changes.

I'll keep watching but I feel I've seen enough to know where the the rest is going. It's gone none of the charm or humor of the original. If anything seeing this just makes me want to rewatch the old anime more.

That isn't Komugi, it's someone else related to her (her daughter? I forget)

Was this supposed to be a Milky Holmes reference?

I know Milky Holmes didn't invent the detective outfit, but it's the way it's designed with placement of ribbons, frills, and the colors that make me wonder.

Halko Momoi's character Koharu Yoshida in its upcoming Nurse Witch Komugi-chan R television anime will be the mother of protagonist Komugi Yoshida. Momoi voiced Komugi in the previous anime.

Original seiyuu for Komugi is now the voice for Komugi R's mum.

Second ep was a hell of a lot better in my opinion.
This could just be because Koyori was my favorite in the original series, but once that personality flip happened and what's her face started acting like Koyori would that's when this show suddenly started to feel like the old Komugi again.

God the overwhelming moronic logic of this whole situation is making my head hurt.
The producer is canceling her first role with actual lines, because of bad grades in school...
You know, on the surface I can kinda understand this, it's common practice for schools to revoke working permission to students who have poor grades, but this person isn't affiliated with her school in any form. Secondly, some people are just not cut out for some things so if a person is clearly horrible at school that's all the more reason to encourage them in whatever other field they're in.

Third, getting that kind of role can't be easy, canceling it over something so trivial is sure to give your agency a bad rep. Just think about it, who's gonna book talent from an agency that backs out of arrangements like this for no good reason?

Forth, this cunt wasn't even doing this because of the bad grades. For whatever brain dead fucking retarded reason she equates low grades with not having fun at school. Then the flash back she had implied it was more to do with not having friends at school and good times with them... and Komugi is standing there next to her friend from school. What in the flying fuck?

Fifth, this producer should just be fired if they're going to let their misplaced emotions compromise the company. The point of the agency is to find work for their talent, if you're going to reject work for your clients because you don't like something about said clients then you should find a new occupation.

I don't even...

you know, if this sort of thing happened more often I'd think this was a silly comedy/parody of magical girl anime. So much of the show is played so straight though it's hard to really tell what they're going for. Things like this are so infrequent they just feel more strange and out of place than anything.

oh fuck off. This shit is obnoxious every time I see it. It's not like being an otaku, a pervert, transvestite, or some other socially unacceptable thing you need to hide. There's nothing wrong with a girl being girly, Jesus fucking christ just shut the fuck up and dress/act how ever the hell you want and stop being such a whinny annoying little piece of shit, no one gives a crap.

hahahahaha, oh wow...

Erm, in Japan there hundreds of so-called "ugly no talent whores"
If even all akb members are like that, then what to say about others
Decent female actresses, musicians/singers have no real connection with idol shit
Models– maybe. But models are usually, like, "whores" everywhere
>> No. 25808 [Edit]
Some of the biggest celebrities/artists in the US flaunt their slutty ways while taking pride in being cunts, and people eat that shit up.
It's a problem with the cultures that place pride and admiration in very different things. The US glorifies being a tough bad ass rebel who takes no shit and isn't afraid to break the rules. It demeans 'boy scouts' and goodie goodie types. Women here trow themselfs at douchebag 'rebels' and men admire them. The end result of a culture like this should be obvious to anyone. When you actually stop to look at our culture can it really come as any surprise we have the second largest incarceration rate in the world, or idols that are all bitches and whores?

Rumors and jokes of Japanese idols having to climb to the top on their knees are usually just rumors, and even if true can't compare to American celebrities that gladly expose themselves in public, do drugs, get arrested, and flaunt their sex life.
If I had to say, I think nearest thing to >>25778 we have in the US would have to be the likes of honey boo boo, and I find that very sad.

Indeed. But she's no a rising star, so she needs the cash/money.
