I really hate how people are calling characters in this anime fat.



Sonico and her other friend who eats a lot aren't "fat" they're just a little on the plump side. That's how healthy women were supposed to look, before anorexia became so hip. That body type (thick thighs, bit of a chubby stomach, overall softness layer on the body, big boobs, big butt) turns me on anyway, so I actually like it.

However, you can't deny that Pochaco is a fatty.

The characters really appeal to the "healthy girl" fetish; AKA: girls with a decent amount of meat on their bones.

*Raises hand* Guilty as charged dear sir!

Seriously. They aren't fat. They are full figured, shapely, hell healthy even. They're much better than a lot of female characters in anime who have ridiculously large busts, but otherwise slim figures.

Basically, they are proportionate.

That word right there. If you watch nothing but anime you'd be easily forgiven for thinking you can have a set of headlamps like that without the appropriate chassis to mount them!

As should be incredibly obvious by now that body type works for me as well lol. They are by no means "thin" but Sonico and Fuuri ain't fat. Bit chubby but in a nice way without any unsightly folds XD.
And yeah Pochaco is definitely fat. She is bit too far in the thicker build direction.

While I prefer skinny girls myself, I still think Sonico's a cutie. It's nice to see some variety, they can't all look like the girls from Steins; Gate.

Sonico is cute... maybe a bit clumsy...
They really tried to put some cuteness-tropes into the show... but I wish they would have made a clear decision where the show should head to. Be it to have a plot at all or go downright for sexyness... but now it ended up as ... a pile of "don't-has-words-to-describe-it-properly"...

Well, one of these days I'm gonna check out Soniami, since I stumbled upon it and was quick to add it to my Queue.

I have a question, though. I must ask it as a result of seeing various imagery.....why does she always look sad? Or is it just me misinterpreting again? Otherwise, I have no complaints thus far.

Jessica Nigri officially announced as the English VA for Super Sonico dub....thoughts?


A lot of people seem to be against it but the way I look at is, it seems most people think English dubs suck regardless with the current English crop of VA, so why not mix it up and bring in someone new...can't really be much worse.

I don't think too many people watched this in general, due to thinking it was just going to be a bunch of random fan service crap which surprisingly (sadly) it wasn't. It was a pretty nicely animated show to say the least, nothing amazing but not bad....

She does a good job in RWBY, so I reckon she will do well.

This show was actually very popular- it was in the top ten when new episodes were running. I think a lot of people got turned off for two reasons- the crowd who doesn't like ecchi anime refused to watch it, basically never giving it a chance. Then the crowd who does watch ecchi abandoned it when it turned out the show wasn't really ecchi. It had excellent animation, and an overall very positive message about how someone unique (girl rocker Sonico) inspires the people around her. I'm not one of those people who automatically says an English version is bad. I think a lot of Japanese dubs are pretty bad personally, but it seems like they never get pointed out. The Japanese voice casting in this particular show was superb- but at least an English version will let me enjoy the animation better and I believe in supporting our voice actors. Hopefully it works out- even if the fans hate it I'm still buying it no matter what. I loved this show.

I'm excited to see the english dub I love sonico and this show was good. I know its unpopular but I am a fan of Jessica, her cosplay aside I thought she did well in RWBY and seeing as Sonico is one of her favorite (if not her favorite) characters I believe she will put her best effort into portraying Sonico
