Has anyone been watching Minami-ke ~okawari~ lately?
I loved the first season greatly. I liked Chiaki. I ship Fujioka/Kana. I liked the beginning of the op. I liked the whole anime’s approach and animation and vague plot and characters and humour.
Thus I was sad when it ended, and delighted to hear that there was a second season.
(Yeah, I know I’m a bit late in complaining about okawari when it came out ages ago, but I’ve been busy.)
THERE ARE MANY ISSUES i HAVE WITH OKAWARI.
Some of these are timing and humour, which i somehow feel have gotten worse. I do not know.
However, the biggest problem i have with it is the character design. compare…
CHIAKI IS BLONDE.
I mean, what the hell???? I liked her original hair colour so much. And like, she just looks so retarded now. I find it very awful… very shocking.
Haruka also looks somehow weird.
Even Kana, who I think has best retained her appearance from the first season, has slightly skewed features.
Yes. I have issues with their eyes.
and Fujioka is blonde also. I have issues with that.
I don’t know. I’m not sure if it’s only me who feels this way, but it’s depressing me.
I liked minami-ke. the question is… will okawari be able to redeem itself enough to overcome the fact that CHIAKI IS BLONDE??
Only time will tell.
(I promise I’ll write a review soon!! )
