Thoughts on the first episode

Oh so this is another short series...

That was so awkward though...with the transformation. Not buying into this tbh and some parts reminds me Samurai Flamenco. Oh well, at least the main girl isn't a complete moron. WONDER HOOP.

It's ok, I guess...she seems to be less intelligent in the anime adaption than she is in the comic strip; points off for losing a little snark and 4th wall humor.

Comic Strip example, possibly a spoiler

So this is basically promotion for Namco's rebooting of the game series right?

Really low budget (or maybe they were aiming for that particular feeling for nostalgia?)

Anyway, first episode, 3 "meh" out of 5

Won't be watching.

Probably. I don't remember Wonder Momo being a "game series" though. Just an arcade game with ports.
The concept of it was: Kick people on a confined stage, stand in a tornado to get hoop, throw a hoop at some baddie on that small stage, run around and catch hoop while side-scrolling enemies throw things at or shoot you, throw hoop until you beat everything on the stage, stage over. Start next stage without the hoop..

I honestly don't think there was much more to Wonder Momo.
Some web comic and anime short came out this year to promote her revival, I guess.

People seem to hate this, I think it's relatively fun in a harmless way.

On the other hand, I remember playing the game pretty well, and, well, this is certainly better than *that* was.

They hit all the important elements tho!

It was pretty low budget as expected...

I don't really get why Namco would fund this I mean... it's not like they're still making Wonder Momo games...

I just finished the first episode and all I've got to say is:
What the fuck did I just watch? (0.o)

an anime based on a web comic with all the fun bits stripped out.

The webcomic makes a lot more sense. and momo doesn't seem QUITE such an idiot.


I just started reading it thanks to the anime. and oh god it's killing me. "the fastest power up lesson ever: okay the secret to your power attack is to jump in the air and announce it. ready? go!"

Yeah, I'm hoping they will fill back in more of the (kind of enlightening) details from the strip yet, but I'm not holding my breath, since it's just a short. Too bad if they don't. The strip is pretty good, actually. I already read everything up to date, and along with xkcd and oglaf it is only the third comic I have added to my RSS feed.

Well, watching the ep killed brain cells, so I'm dropping this one. It sounds like the web comic is much better so I'll give that a try.

I think the idea behind the web comic and anime is to raise awareness for an unannounced game.
Whether the anime is terrible or great, they're creating recognition for a possible upcoming product.

Much like Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, Transformers, Youkai Watch, Jewelpet, Tamagotchi, Onegai My Melody, Devil Survivor 2 the animation, Persona 4 the animation, Persona 3: the Movies, Neon Genesis' manga (made to support the upcoming anime), Z/X Ignition, Bushiroad, Pacman the Ghostly Adventures, etc.

The game has been announced and is already getting favorable reviews:
