GA Art Design Class OVA — Fashion Crisis

April 2nd, 2010

 

Transform and roll out

Impressions:

Maaaaaan. If I had know that this was just going to be 21 straight minutes of Kisaragi with next to no Prof, and essentially no Noda or Tomokane silliness at all, I wouldn’t have been looking forward to it quite so much. Kisaragi is easily the most dull character of the bunch and she’s sure as hell not who I think of when I look back and remember why I enjoyed this show. I wanted my Color Rangers, Magical Witch Nodamiki, or at least some chicken pantomime. Not twenty minutes of Kisaragi bumbling around.

The first half was a bit better than the second, mainly because Noda and Tomokane were actually engaged in the plot for more than 15 seconds each. The new (to us) teacher emasculated Tomokane and Kisaragi for their lack of style, so Namiko and Noda tried to teach them a bit about fashion. I do question Namiko’s fire hydrant dress, but it did look okay in her imagination. The second half was essentially just Kisaragi wandering around the school. Homura (I think that’s his name)’s evolution into some kind of art supply mecha was easily the highlight, although Ararararakawa continued cardboard box shenanigans were also decent enough. However, that does speak to the trouble that a segment is in when Arakawa is one of the high points.

    Damn. They animated the latest chapters but leave out cardboard Namiko, shuriken pencil kisaragi and the badminton match. What a waste not to use them in the OVA.
