Glasslip — First Impressions

A circle of friends plays with chickens.

Well, this episode didn’t get off to the greatest start. Normally you’d like to do something to catch the audience’s attention. So what does Glasslip do? Have some fireworks explode, while we pan to each of the characters in turn and display their name. One of the worst intros before the OP for a first episode I’ve ever seen.

The rest of the episode was an improvement. (Well, there wasn’t anywhere to go but up.) I like how they’re telling the story so far, it’s a teensy bit subtle (well, by anime standards anyway) so you actually have to pay attention and read between the lines. A pretty decent episode actually.

However, the show is basically Hanasaku Iroha or Tari Tari but with chickens and (presumably) glass. Let’s hope it doesn’t turn around from a strong start to become a total disaster like those two did.

I like the music. The animation is nice too, when they don’t just pan over still pictures. Which seems to be quite often, sadly.

  1. I found it hilarious how she was mesmerised because she thinks the creepy transfer student was so hot, when he looks almost identical to Yukinari, whom she shows no attraction to. If it weren’t for their height difference, I would have trouble telling them apart.

    1. Lol yeah. I can’t tell any of them apart at the moment. Since, you know, they haven’t actually done anything.

  2. I have mixed feelings about this show, so far. I liked HanaIro a lot more, b/c here everyone is nice (so far, at least) and in HanaIro there were characters like Minchi to spice things up. Also, I think the Kakeru’s character is a bit bland. But it’s much better than annoying Tari Tari. It also looks nice and has a summery atmosphere, so I quite enjoy it.

    1. Yeah, I’d place it between HanaIro and TariTari as well. Wouldn’t go so far as to say I enjoy it though. 🙂 It’s way too hectic and I barely know who the characters are, much less have the slightest reason to care about them.
