Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi — First Impressions

Interesting premise. Unfortunately not the greatest execution.

I think my biggest problem is the character designs and the animation, particularly the color scheme. At the moment it reminds me a lot of 11eyes and Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi. Not the best connotations there.

But the premise is pretty cool, what with God ditching the world in all. May have to blog this just so I can nerd out over the theological implications. Also I tend to like the kind of show where you haven’t the foggiest idea what’s actually going on. In that aspect this show is kind of along the lines of Shin Sekai Yori and Penguindrum.

  1. It wasn’t so much the color scheme that annoyed me, but the lighting effects. I think it was an attempt to make it more dramatic, but it just ended up being a huge distraction from what was actually happening in the scene.

    Still, like you said, it has an interesting premise. For that reason, I’m going to give it a few more episodes for it to prove itself. Its ability to worldbuild and maintain the mystery element is going to be the key to me enjoying this show. The SSY comparison is certainly appropriate when looking at it this way.

    1. Ah, the lighting effects probably also contributed.

      I have no illusions that this is going to become the next SSY but let’s hope it at least takes a little bit from SSY.

  2. Same here! I don’t like the colour scheme (and the filters), either. It’s a pretty dark and depressing premise so muted colours (like in SSY) would have been much more appropriate imo.
    I liked Tasogare Otome which had similar colours. But there the colours and filters were used so excessively, almost in an experimental way that it looked kind of cool.
    Most likely I won’t follow this. Admittedly, though, the mystery plot seems to be interesting. Hopefully I won’t be missing out on something here!

    1. The first arc was amazing. Episode four actually made me cry. That doesn’t happen all that often in anime. Still, the setup seems to be going into a more standard rpg route, so I’m not sure what to expect from now on.
