I know!
Yep. I'm insanely busy with work, so I have very little free time now. If a show isn't catching me on the first episode, I'm passing on it. It's not that this show is bad--it really isn't. Rather, I can only watch 1 or 2 episodes a day, so I have to be extremely selective.

Well it'll be here for a while, so watch it when you can, the manga is really good, and the anime seems to be doing a good job with the characters (so far).

Don't get me wrong. I like ecchi, I like harems, I like school romance. I do have a sense of humor about the anime tropes that are resplendent in such, including boobs and panty shots and pervy teenage boys. I like this main character and the animation and the overall premise. But that Photography Club? Just distasteful and not funny. I hope they end up being more of a sideline than the center of this show.

See, it's that kind of recommendation that can sway my mind. Who knows? Perhaps I'll knock some other show off in favor of this one.

Really kinda lacks...I don't know. A spark of some sort. Feels rather generic. You could tell exactly what sort of anime you were about to get as soon as Boobasaurous went by them on the bike. From that point you knew you were in for an ass/cleavage montage / forced girl introduction parade and that the next male character to appear would be total raging perv. Cliche demands it.

Was a let down after watching My Teen Comedy SNAFU right before it.

Pretty mediocre show; calling it now.

It feels like a slice of life series with romance but lacks any real direction. The main male protagonist also doesn't seem to have a personality. The OP song is cliched as fuck. Oh and this show lacks humor or at least I don't see it so far. This is one of the weakest shows for Thursday's line up imo.

At first I thought this would be at least on the same drama level as Amagami SS or Ano Natsu but so far, this show is putting me to sleep.

I found the first episode a bit too slow for my liking. I hope future episodes try to pick up the pace a bit.

Episode 2 was better then ep 1 imo. and the main character steps out of his shell a bit so it was nice to see.

Amagami has deviating routes for all the girls so they all get their own different ending

From the first ep, I personally don't think this will be the same case for Photo Kano (12 eps would be kind of short for like 6-7 girls lol)

So far this has taken a different route than the manga adaptation that I read (where he chooses the photo club). That knocks it down a peg in my estimation. However, the adaptation that I read (Sweet Snap) is only the Haruka route, so perhaps there will be more development that will lead him to switching clubs or something...

So far, it is OK. The first episode was a bit of a "meet the harem" type of episode. I was a bit underwhelmed by the background art, for a show about photography, but then I realized that they may be doing something clever. When you see things that he has taken a photo of (frequently from the OP or ED at this point, but also a couple of spots in the episode) the art takes a distinct step up. If they are going to use the general blandness of the normal backgrounds to highlight the quality of his photography, that would be interesting! After all, if the art is always good, then they photography would likely look average. If the art looks much better in photos, then it will leave an impression of talent...

If you want to read my full review and episode highlights section, see my post on Nabe!

I gave Date A Live less than ten minutes... some shows are just an abomination with no chance of redemption.


haha you're right... I suffered through 15 minutes of Senran Kagura before I purged it from my hard drive. lol Some shows really are a waste of talent... but Photo Kano isn't one of them... and I was really just teasing Pandito about dropping it.

If I remember correctly he joins the Photo Club in the manga... but the two clubs often interact... and he only joined the pervert club because he felt pressured into it... in the manga he is really mousey.

It is slice of life, there's no robots or giant space nautiluses with massive space cannons, theres no mysteries to solve, its just his romantic entanglements with various girls... and his mopiness about his childhoodfriend and how shes so much better than him and blahblahblah...

Personally, that's the one part of the manga I hated, he was too much the typical harem protagonist; better than most, but still a bit whiny. Still liked the manga though, I got bogged down in manga reading and haven't caught up, so maybe he changes later on.

I love me some fanservice but I also dropped Senran Kagura... in seconds actually.

With PhotoKano so far I find all the bloomer shots to be funny and appropriate for the show. As long as it keeps being fun and funny I will watch it. I like my anime either light and fluffy or deep thinking so this one being in the light and fluffy category is OK. Not sure there is much deep thinking anime this season but we had both Shinsekai Yori and Psycho Pass for fall and winter so...
