Hey Guys we’re back! Well I am, I’ll see if I can convince Matt into joining me again… Wild horses couldn’t drag me away!
Anywho, here we go again, mini show, mini review, but unlike Matt I’m going to stick to that and not go all fascinating and analytical on you!!! It’s 50/50 with me, either you’re going to get analytical discussions or you’re going to get me drooling over cute girls and fan service.
The art style was different, can’t say I have a preference though, you? It was different but too similar for me to have a preference. I did like the visual of Ekoda standing nude at the side of a railway track in the blistering sun–very evocative image, very artsy. Artsy seems like the right word.
Aside from the art, everything else felt pretty much the same to me. I mean Ekoda sounded like the girl we got to know last week. We may have caught her in a slightly more vulnerable moment but otherwise, no real personality difference to me. I didn’t like the VA as much as the first one but there’s no doubt the writing is consistent enough that it absolutely felt like the same character–which is good.
One thing that was a bit different was that this episode did seem just a little judgemental there. It made her seem sad. We all have those sad moments, especially when it’s late and we’re feeling insecure–despite the actions of this episode more or less just being her plucking her eyebrows (something I can’t relate to as I don’t do it myself) I very much related to her quiet contemplation and overthinking things as simple as which way to face her ‘partner’ in bed.
That’s ok though. We all have our sad little bits too. Hey, Matt said the same thing. But I wrote it first!!!!
Ha! See!!! Told you I would keep this in line. Now I love writing these itty bitty reviews. Keeps things flowing and snappy but I’m curious to know if you guys enjoy this format? Let me know in the comments. I know I enjoy them too, the less work the better… haha I’m so lazy.
This said, Ekoda-chan is still an interesting and rather unique offering. I’m looking forward to next week. Signing out!
