Synopsis


The anime centers on Minoa Asagaya, a new high school student in Sakaneko Private High School. Despite being a novice to anime, Minoa's classmate Arisu Kamiigusa invites her to make an "anime research club" at school. Through conversations with her classmate Miko Kouenji, as well as various anime-loving upperclassmen, Minoa gradually gets hooked on anime. While they stand against the student council's continuous efforts to disband their club, and they ignore the impending end of the world, they talk about anime, whether in Akiba, or in real-life "sacred place" anime settings, or the hot springs.

The first episode is now up: http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-gataris/episode-1-minoa-anime-rookie-749901

Episode 1

And it begins with tropey characters introduced as Minoa is the clumsy type, Kamiigusa is the ojou-sama, Minoa's best friend is the athlete, and some guy is a chuunibyou. Out of the blue, Kamiigusa is asking her how much she likes anime and begins talking about all sorts of different anime shows. It's no wonder she asked that as she wants to join the anime club, but it's not active as it is in need of members, so Minoa agrees to join and help recruit others. Then they find a cat in the old clubroom that is in need of some heavy-duty cleaning, and it turns out that the cat can talk. Lots of references are there with parodies of shows like Gatchaman, Evangelion, Summer Wars, Shirobako, Time Travel Girl, and Dog of Flanders, among other things, and it was pretty amusing to hear Kamiigusa say all of them. It's off to a solid start, and it looks like it will be a fun show, especially when the other would-be club members join.

It was average at best for me imo.

Typical show about anime and clubs. Minoa is cute though but wtf, that cat?...
Kinda curious to see what other references we'll get.

Cute and fun if largely unremarkable otherwise. Still, it does look very good and has a pretty likable cast so far. Though it's only the first episode, I can't see this one winning anyone over who isn't already a fan of this sort of thing but it could be an enjoyable watch. I'll definitely be back next week. Plus, it's nice to see Raggedy Ann working again.

Yea, that threw me off. At first I thought it was supposed to be a stuffed animal (ala Kampfer) which would would explain why she didn't seem to react to stomping on its face but then she acted like it was a real cat. Is it considered okay in Japan to step on a cat? 0.o?

So far not a very remarkable anime but I do enjoy anime about anime so I'll likely be sticking with this one. I can already tell that Miko will be my favourite character (man she looks a lot like Asuka from Sound Euphonium) and Kai will likely be my least because the whole chuunibyou thing has become a bit played out.

Edit: I did like the art club reference as well as the k-on club. It's going to be fun trying to pick out the assorted references to other anime. Plus the opening sequence of her as a child watching anime was probably exactly how I looked as a child. ^.^

This could get lame quick but I'll stick around since the cat asked so nicely. Ugh great OP animation and then lame CG ED, be more consistent! Oh and I dare someone to keep track of and figure out the real name of the parody anime names

I'll definitely be giving this another few episodes to see how it pans out.

I picked up a few of the parody references

Hero School = MHA
R Zero = Re:Zero
Toramiko = Kumamiko ?
Bakuon reference in there as well
Girl who Slept through Time = Girl who Leapt through Time

This is the kind of offbeat comedy that's right up my alley, so of course I'm gonna stick around. It reminds me a little of Konobi and I freaking LOVED Konobi.

Cute and light show. Wonder if sensei's idol pose has something to do with the performance in the ED.

Since this is an anime about anime I took it as a reference to the huge uptick in popularity of idol anime. It was very "Love Live" in feel.

Yeah I would have preferred an [email protected] reference ( they don't use CG for their dance sequences).

This one's got a decent start.


I'm takin' the cat's advice & see how far this will take me.

Does this series scream "REMEMBER GENSHIKEN"? Those are the vibes I'm getting, but Genshiken was a bit better than this from what I've seen of this episode.

Looks decent, so I'll see what will happen

Well, at the very least I'll watch a few more episodes to see what's the deal with the talking cat and possibly-magic beret. This is a slice-of-life about an anime club, right?
