Completed: Kanokon

Kanokon

Mmm~ quite a lame end. I was wishing for a lot of helpings of fanservice, but the risque levels never went above the minimum levels. But oh well… at least this series is done for, for now. Unless they wanna do another season of it, XD.

Well, Kanokon has been mildly enjoyable for me, given the sheer levels it pushes the envelope of “fanservice” anime and thankfully, the show realises that and doesn’t push itself too much to try and make a “deep” plot out of it. Sure, there was much interesting things, characters and settings to explore, but in the end, I’m glad the studio decided to keep it short and simple.

It’s surprising too how long the show has managed to keep my interest, and it’s pretty much a testament of the shit I can endure just to get my dose Ayako Kawasumi and Noto Mamiko, although towards the last few episodes, I’ve totally been able to predict all their lines and responses. But I guess, something is better than nothing, plus it gives me something to tide my time over, especially early in the week when there is a general lack of shows to watch after Geass airs.

Not exactly a show worth to be recommended widely, but if you’re a connoisseur of fanservice anime, I guess Kanokon is worth a watch. Too bad the shock factors went down much as the show progressed on.

    See the short special video that came with DVD volume 1? Moetaku released it recently. Very NSFW.

    More fanservices in DVD special feature. Very very extreme…

    Just seen it myself. Rather titillating, but nothing too extreme, I say.

    Becuase To-Love-Ry is too genetic, and just teh fanservice, as well as Kanokon, gave life to that show.

    I agree with you Kurogane, the series had it’s fair share of comedy, romance and ecchi. Now I’m looking forward for Ayako’s and Noto’s next project.

    Having seen the first and second DVD special, I won’t be surprised if they make a full blown hentai animation of Kanokon ^^;

    Even if it was generic, I thought that To-Love-Ru was a little bit more entertaining than this… and I get to hear lots and lots of Ayako’s laughter, Oh-hohohohohoho~!!
