Another anime from a light novel, Mondaiji-tachi (let’s just call it that since that name is way too long…) is a story about three young person sent to another world where they have to win games (or something along theses lines). The three kids have obvously special powers: there’s Izayoi Sakamaki, a super powerful arrogant young boy who is absolutely bored with everything in life; Asuka Kuudo, the ojou-sama who have the power to command anything or anyone into what she wants; and finally You Kasukabe, a quiet and anti-social girl who have the power to talk to animals. In the other world where they arrive, call “Little Garden”, they meet Black Rabbit, a sexy young lady with rabbit ears who explain them the world they are in.
This part gets over complicated for whatever reason, but what I understoud was that in this world you can play game to win prizes. You bet on capacities, your own or the capacities of others people. It apears Black Rabbit have makes them come to that world because the community she is part of have been ripped off their name and banner by a Demon. So they now need powerfull players to win it back. And their community is now call “No Name”… Shamefull, really.
So, this first episode wasn’t too boring, but this anime doesn’t look really special or interesting. It’s the kind of cliché story, but this time, the three main protagonist aren’t even interesting. The only character I like so far is Black Rabbit, who is playing the cool girl, but is in fact no so sure of herself. The three kids are arrogant and I don’t really like them so far. It’s hard to makes those kind lovable: the thought kid have to have flaws or he’ll get annoying.
For now, he is super-powerful (he even beats a god on his first day… please someone kick his ass!), think he is cool, is always sure of himself (over-confident even), and think he have it with the ladies… LOSER! The ojo-sama is, well… an ojo-sama, wich makes her annoying without doing anything. But by the moment she opens her mouth, she is even more annoying. She needs fast character development, or all the characters inside the story will want to kick her. The third one feels like… the third one: bland and empty. She seems to have no characterisation at all, except the fact she can talk to animals.
So, I’ll see where it goes, but for now, this anime feels generic to the extreme.
