Super Sonico #01 — Sonico Is Totally Awesome, Guys!

January 6th, 2014


Subtlety, thy name is not White Fox.


This can be summed up as trying to cover all the disparate thoughts of “How cute is Sonico?” “Isn’t Sonico cute and hot?” “How great is Sonico?” “Sonico is great!” and “Sonico tweets too! Just like you!” There’s really nothing else to the episode either. Hell, if you watched the short promos, you’ve already seen every major event of the first half, and the second is just “Sonico’s manager is weird, she’s also a waitress, and is part of a band.” That’s it. The end. Episode over. Let’s all talk about how great Sonico is!

 So no, it’s not exactly subtle about its attempts to give her a nonstop slobbering tongue bath. It’s not even the kind of tongue bath the fandom gives its prized llama either. This is the half-assed kind where they believe if they just keep saying it over and over again, eventually it will sink in. You are not Jedi, White Fox. Nor has White Fox discovered any heretofore unseen animation talent either. This is just a bland, vapid affair all around with little effort put into any part. It’s not funny, nor even trying to be. It’s not anything but some cynical advertising using a mascot character, yet still too scared of alienating anybody to do anything but shower her with adulation, let alone try.

Next Episode:

And she’s an idol too!

    “Vapid” is much too positive a description for this first episode…
