Flip Flappers Review — C+

Two girls explore magical worlds and fall in love.

I like the idea of Flip Flappers much more than I liked Flip Flappers. The fantastical worlds, the gorgeous animation, the story of self-discovery.

But in practice… I just couldn’t particularly bring myself to care? I’m not entirely sure why. Looking at it with some distance, it seems like something I should really like. I imagine that the main issue is that I didn’t care about either of the two main girls. Papika has the intelligence of a two year old, and Cocona is a bit of an ass? Oh well, you can’t like everything…

I would recommend this to others though, or to at least try the first episode. A lot of people liked it much more than me. And it’s the kind of show I wish I could like.

  • Storytelling – C – Didn’t engage me.
  • Voice – A – Very unique.
  • Characters – C – Didn’t work for me, aside from Yayaka.
  • Attention Grab – D – Couldn’t keep my interest.
  • Production – A – Beautiful.
  • Overall – C+

Recommendations – Kaiba, Paprika, Rolling Girls
