Don't you mean usually animated in 3's or is my understanding of this wrong? Because we go from 3's being animated with 8 frames per second to series like Mushi-shi with 2's which is 12 frames per second? I don't have a firm grasp on this sort of stuff so please correct me if I'm under the wrong impression.

Hirano is nowhere near as "professional" as many seiyuu, but she is far more interesting in her varied approaches, and more effective at communicating real emotion in the roles where that is called for. The way I think of it is that many seiyuu can simulate emotion, but Hirano can make me think she feels it.
I'm not referring to different bits of comedy Tomatsu's trying to perform, rather the daily-talk-routine (for lack of a better description); dialogue which should sound the same. Don't get me wrong...she does a relatively good job of conveying emotion. It just feels like, and maybe this is due to inexperience on her part compared to someone like Sawashiro, it still takes a while for her to stabilize for a particular role.

I suppose each to their own. I think Hirano does an extremely poor job of conveying any emotion at all, especially for someone who's supposedly a "good" VA. Add to that, she's only capable, from what I've heard, only one voice with VERY little variation. Konata, Haruhi, Polka, the sister in Tora Dora, all the same and only a step or 2 above dictating...The only thing she has going for herself is that she's mildly attractive (which isn't exactly the most useful skill for a VA); nothing more. Her popularity stems from being cast for the right role at the right time, not from her talent (or lack thereof). Replace Hirano with Akiyama Nana during the same point in time, and her popularity would be at a similar level as Hirano's right now.

Sawashiro has a similar problem, partially due to both of them having a very unique voice, but she's capable of changing her voice significantly (most recent example would be her side role as Maaya in World Destruction). Her voice acting in Kannagi is, imho, average for her. Not the best, but by no means the worst either.

None, since both of them are too quirky for me. Normal girls is what I want, not some whimsical goddess with ulterior motives.

True, my mistake. I indeed meant 3's.

ohhh this is certainly a nice surprise. Been looking around for something light this season and this one fits like a glove.

Animation is fluid, the VA and the dialogue was good. The comedy works on me

Chara design wise is rather run of the mill though.

Both the OP and ED is eye catching. OP for the animation and ED for the music.
I wonder how long before people start mimicking Nagi's dance in the OP

They killed the cats just because they didn't want to animate a scene with Nagi breastfeeding... or they really hate little kittens...

They followed the exact scene from the manga.

Watching Rosario’s opening somehow made me realize that it’s not “just a dance.” I don’t know; I don’t get the same vibes or feelings watching Rosario’s "version." Animation is not as smooth; song is not as catchy; choreography is not as “difficult” or entertaining; overall presentation is not good enough for an automatic re-watch every single episode. I’m pretty sure it’s not because the surprise effect has been worn off after so many dances, but because there must be a little something Yamakan, and only Yamakan can do. I don’t remember how many times did I repeat the dance in Suzumiya Haruhi; I can’t count how many times did I re-watch the opening sequence in Lucky Star; and now, I’m not sure if there exists a day I might get tired of watching Nagi singing and dancing on stage

I wasn't caught at first by the manga and it's adaptation, but after ep 2 I'd say I am now!

I like all those touch of humor, like the wand on table, or the superball joke...

I didn't realise it at first, but the animation is really top-notch: it moves! it moves! it moves!

The OP is nice, but the ED is definitly one of my favorite this season.

Definitly a great addition to my watch-list!

I dont quite get it... is this a music anime, or a slice of life with a mix of supernatural?

Anyway, I downloaded Xedo-speedsubs or whatever they're called, and omg... really really indescribably horrid.... thank god Ayako subs came out....

I dunno, but she is pretty whimsical goddess to me. Pretty scary since she has all those juju that can make your day very unpleasant if she wants to.

Ayako xvid version had the wrong script encoded. Please DL the mkv version for now. A v2 will be released as soon as the encoder comes back. We apologize for the inconvenience.
