HEY SEVEN ARCS, ASTAROTTE WON THE CONCERT SCENE COMPETITION THIS WEEK.
Seriously, I liked this way more than the one in DOG DAYS this week, and this show doesn’t even Astarotte having the “famous singer” character setting! Sure it wasn’t all fluidly animated and panned here and there, but I still liked it a lot more than the one by Seven Arcs!
This week was pretty much another fanservice episode, with even more skin exposure by Lotte and her friends mostly, with a surprise appearance by Naoko as well. That was funny, but sadly underutilized. Poor Effie got herself a hard time too again. And the gnome princess has an unhealthy obsession with people’s nether regions as well… poor Elika.
In the mean time, it looks like the anime will be heading to a provisional ending with the “should we return to where we came from” plotline apparently. A little cliched, but I guess it’s the only way they can think of ending the series for now, since manga is still ongoing, etc. etc. Oh well.
Also, I’d pay good money to see Mercelida’s idol performance. Seriously.
