One Room

Postby Eira » Sat Jul 07, 2018 10:17 am

As far as I can tell there’s no thread for this, I don’t know if no one here is even watching it or maybe there’s a rule against shorts (if so please forgive me I didn’t know) so I’m just gonna make this cause I’m watching it and I don’t mind yelling into an empty void anyway!

Episode 0
Spoiler:
Well season 2 started off with an episode 0 that’s for the most part just a recap of the first route from the first season, I really don’t like the girl from this route too much, she’s cute and all but it was easily the most boring section from the first season, the little sister and last girl were much better IMO.
We don’t get much outside of the recap, she just shows up at the house with a beach bag and we see a calader saying ‘beach’ so I guess the show finally realised what it is and is just like “sure why not, let’s do a beach episode RIGHT AWAY!” And I’m fine with that.
More evidence that the show knows what it is now is the end card. In the first season when the credits rolled there was always a little end card graphic usually it was just the girl of the route looking cute or whatever but this time she wasn’t just looking cute she was looking sexy and there was a panty shot and everything. There was nothing like in the first season, yer it was a fanservice show all along and it made plenty of hints and ha dundertones but this season season isn’t pulling its punches, it knows what it is and it’s going all in right away. And you know what, I kinda like it.

I’m gonna be watching this for sure cause I’m weridly obsessed by it, call it a guilty pleasure I guess.
Is anyone else watching it?
Does anyone else here ever care about it?
Am I just talking into the void?

I liked Episode 0. Its a good refresher for the first season which I badly needed to remember what the show was about

Episode 1
Spoiler:
It has been a long time since I watched the first season and I forgot how limiting 4 mins really is, if they have enough budget and faith in this to make a second season then couldn’t you give it something like 9 mins, I’m not asking for full episodes here but most short shows are only 9 mins and still work great and I don’t think the show would suffer much to still fill that time.
Anyway I really liked this episode, as I said in my episode 0 talk I really think the show understand what it is more and is fine with just going ball out on the fanservice. Lingering shots of the chest, neko and legs. Slow pan shots of her whole body in swim wear and since it’s not a multi-cast show and the protagonist doesn’t actually ever appear on screen. We just get a lot of shots of her on her own being cute and looking great.
Although the ending is... something. The fact that he just pushes her down like that is weird, like I know that they’re dating now but as someone who’s dating you can just easily do that a lot more naturally and it would better establish a mood then just pushing her down, escpically when she’s busy trying to study. You guys were bascially alone on that beach but now that she’s busy you’re gonna get in her way, not cool. The next episode and maybe the rest of this arc is now either gonna be her getting mad/upset and then patching things up by the end or she goes along with it and then the shows goes back to fluff. There could also be a middle ground of her not getting upset but also not doing it and then drama, but I don’t mind what they do as long as it’s done well, the first season showed they can do fluff or nothing or drama well and so I don’t mind really, just my prediction.


Good episode, I still weirdly enjoy it.

The gist of the show is basically "Date a cute anime girl the Animation." This concept lets itself well in the fact that the perspective of the show is in the first person with the protagonist, allowing you to take the place of said character, and the closeups are all, if we are just being realistic and honest, i what a young, healthy male(or female, anime can be all inclusive) would focus on.

Don't expect any drama or plot coming out of this. Its a simple show with a simple goal and should be enjoyed its trying to do and have a good time.

Did you not watch the first season, the way you talk about it really makes it sound like you haven’t seen it. Plus if you had seen it then you should know that’s drama may come into it when they get to he third arc, cause last time the third arc was pretty heavy and the part I liked the most.
