I think I fell in love a little more with this show already. It is definitively light and won’t go much into big dramatic get-up, but there is something just really cool and adventurous about everything here. We have the awesome treasures of Nanana’s collection, the interesting puzzle requiring intellect and courage and then we have a crew of weird individual beginning to form. We already have the perverted main guy, the intelligent loli detective and the trap maid assistant. I obviously cannot hide the fact that all those characters are extremely anime-generic, but this show isn’t really made to be anything out of this world, it is a fun adventure with friends towards fun discoveries.
We are only at the second episode and Juugo already built a pervert reputation around campus. He just joined the school and already people are soliciting him with maids all the time, it is rather sad to be able to project such a poor image of oneself so quickly. The guy is surrounded by weird people, he must be the most normal individual out there, yet the is the one looked at as the weirdo because he has some very man-like ambitions and weaknesses. There is something really joyous and yet thrilling with the adventure he is about to take part in.
Usually shallow anime with generic characters and setting are things I loathe immensely. Yet for some reason, without having anything truly unique for itself, Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin was able to take me within its grasp and hypnotize me so much that I fell in love with the show after only two episodes. I am still at a lost and wondering how such a simple story was able to grasp my interest so much in such a short amount of time and the only thing I can think about is the amazing characters and the amazing work that was done in the pacing and presentation for the show. This was the first “adventure” room we saw and there will probably be tons more to come, but the way it was created and worked was simply stunning. It was amazing both in concept and visually speaking. The theme of adventure and discovery is very strong in the show, it is a theme that is not as obviously represented in picture, but it definitively drives my love and interest.
I am curious to see where things will go from now, the basic pathway for the story has been set, now we are just waiting to see exactly where this story will develop. We have the treasures of Nanana’s collection which might help everyone solve the murder case of Nanana. We have a new team of recruit who are joining the adventure club and will be looking for those treasure and meanwhile we have some thieves somewhere trying to take the treasure before them. The basic setup is there, now let us see how things will evolve in the next few episodes…I’m already hyped !
