Това е една история за момичета, Асстрономия, синдрома на втория клас от прогимназията, феромони, и така нататък... но... най-вече, това е история на рефърънси. И понеже да пиша "рефърънси" е тъпо, а на български няма достатъчно подходящ превод... There are other referential comedies, for example SeiZon... but no other story I've seen actually makes the references a plot point. If you haven't seen the right series, you would be totally lost during the relevant episode. This makes everything a complete hit and a miss, and, honestly speaking...
I do NOT recommend to anybody here in animes-bg to actually watch this anime.
...thus this thread is a complete work of self-gratification. Yet. Here I am, happily writing my fingers off, without even stopping to think about style or content. It made me happy, watching everything. Under the crazy outer appearances of the characters, what drove the story on the most basic level was actually really beautiful on its own. Beautiful the references were, too, but of other type of beauty. References are never of the pure kind, after all. Ha. What I am even speaking about? References are there to laugh your ass off, and so I did. The ones I got. The ones I didn't, I just stood there, but, well, that's to be expected. So here I am, writing something probably nobody will even read, in praise of an anime nobody will even enjoy, which still managed to touch me with its ideas. Ideas presented the way I want them: you have to pass numerous layers of references, irony, self-irony, and so on. How were they presented. How the astronomy was interweaved in the asstronomy. The characters, and their characters. The costumes and the costumes which were not references. The seiyuu play, and the OST. The cats. Yep. I am happy.
Послеслов (почти година по-късно):
Току-що изгледах пак първият епизод, този път от BD rip. Чувствата ми... изненадващо донякъде, но са се запазили точно същите като описаните по-горе. А... и да, ако не сте се усетили, това е отварящият пост на темата за Ебитен в анимес-бг, написан от моя милост. Такива ми ти работи.
