Random Anime Picture# 128: Ridiculous School Outfit

Even from a medium where over-the-top school uniforms are the norm, this has got to take the cake:

-Roku de Nashi Majutsu Kōshi to Akashic Records, Ep01

Seriously?  Come on, Japan... really?  The best and oldest magic academy in the most powerful country in the world, magically, and they dress their female students in that?  Forget about the practicality or lack thereof of a uniform like that, how in the world could the school expect the male students to concentrate?

Unlikely uniforms aside, there's not much new to this show.  Which doesn't mean it's not entertaining, because I'm enjoying it a lot.  It's just that we've seen it before.  It's a relatively pretty series when it gets the chance to be, but again, nothing earth-shattering.  It's one of those titles that will be forgotten shortly after the last episode airs.  It will serve its purpose, selling light novels, and that's all it'll be.  There's no shame in not being an awesome, awe-inspiring, game-changing series... most of them aren't.  Still, I like it.

I'm not sure why.  I'll have to keep watching to figure it out.

1 Pretty mystifying.... Definitely merits further investigation and careful analysis.

But that's not a combat arena, is it? *shudder*

2 Eh. Seeing as how this season is mostly leaving me cold, I might as well give this a shot.

(WorldEnd: This Title Should Be Banned By International Convention For Being Overlong is probably my "favorite" so far, but that's in a purely relative-to-the-rest way. Granblue Game Tie-In is nice enough but also super-generic, animation style notwithstanding. I'm giving Re:Creators a whirl over on the Amazon service and we'll see how that goes.)

Those are ridiculous outfits, seriously though.

3 Mauser, I said there was not much new in this show, didn't I?

4 I'm starting to build a list of anime cliche's I could live without. I think Arena Combat will be added next.

5 Little Witch Academia, people!  It's an absolute joy.

6 Unless, of course, you don't actually like it.  Then it's not so much of a joy.

7 I understand your objections to those early episodes, but, without spoiling anything, let's just say that the writers knew what they were doing when they put that stuff in.  It gets better, and watching it get better is a lot of fun.

8 I really don't want to spoil anything for you, because it's so good.  The episode where Akko spoilers her spoiler and has to jump in after it, or the one where she has to rescue Sucy by spoiler into spoiler, or the one where she teams up with Constanze (the wrench witch from the second movie) to build a spoiler and the damn thing actually works!

This show is amazing.  Most fun I've had with an anime series in years.
