wow never knew happiness could get so dark, really didn't expect that from the title lol! really felt that the episodes were a bit rushed and didn't leave a good feeling in my stomach, hopefull they will make up for it with the remaining two ep but i highly doubt it, not expecting too much from this anime, but i'm still going to watch it..

I was ORIGINALLY going to pick this up at the beginning of the season, but I decided not to. Then Jun came in. Then 4chan. Then I downloaded it on a whim.

Overall, Happiness! is decently entertaining, but not on the same level as a previously-watched Magikano. First two episodes were good but boring (especially with the lack of music), but the later three were decently funny (especially with JUN in the picture!). I'm still not happy about the animation - the gradient on their faces makes them look like they have a serious tan job that only affected the forehead.

I can't wait until the juicier parts where

Damn! I was hoping for something extremely sad and bittersweet... *starts washing off black make-up*

In anticipation of the finale, scheduled to air less than 12 hours from now, here are some scans from the first DVD.

Spoiler for DVD 1 Postcard:
Spoiler for DVD 1 Cover (front):
Spoiler for DVD 1 Reverse Cover (Fanservice! NSFW!):

Also included was a few insert pages (some lineart, a calendar sheet with the postcard art, etc.). The pages have a six-hole punch setup on the left, so I'm wondering if they might give us some sort of a binder later on. The DVD itself actually has a bunch of extras on it, in addition to the first two episodes. You've got an interview with Haruhi's VA, the textless OP (the updated version, which they use in the episodes too) and ED (the "stills" version used until episode 9), a PV for the OP song, little videos featuring the game CGs and character art set to the TV-size OP and ED, a bunch of Happiness anime commercials, and the first two episodes of the web radio show (audio only, of course). So, there's nothing in particular that really stands out, but on the whole it adds up to a lot more extras than you usually see on an anime DVD, which is nice.

I guess I haven't really been making that many comments about the show itself as it's been airing. Given that this is one of the few cases where I'd actually played the game before the show was over, my perspective has been a bit different. I'll reserve full judgement until I see the last episode, but I think the way they re-constructed the game plot is at least interesting. Mostly...

And the way it ended up was... pretty good. The overall plot probably won't win points for originality in some senses, but it wrapped up the show well, and made good use of all the characters.

Spoiler for Episode 12:

...And so ends my screen-capping tribute to Watarase Jun, the only man who a man can ever want.

I ♥ Jun - Part 12 (of 12)

(Okay, not really, because I skipped over a couple episodes' worth of screen captures)
The grand finale of Happiness! ranks second to last for anime ending by the start of the winter season, slightly higher than Yoake Mae yori Ruri-iro na just because it didn’t feature the lead male getting shot and reviving within minutes by the power of L♥VE.

all right, i made a decently short summary of Happiness Episode 12, the final episode in my anime blog.

Honestly though, Happiness! was a bit of a disappointment for me. With the lack of a budget and a moderately average story line, Happiness! flunked the test of an anime considering the rather high standards of graphical level in Japanese anime these days. However, a few redeeming facts include the oh-so-cute Jun as well as Haruhi being decent as a main lead. She is just a tad boring though.

Everything said, if you want to see a short summary of what happened....

Read it here if you want to see my entry and my short take on it.

Not a bad series, from what my quite limited Japanese made of it anyway. *cough* .

Spoiler for last episode:

I think most of us are in agreement that Jun 'man trap', was quite obviously one of the highlights of the show . I'm really not quite sure what's going through the minds of the game/anime designers these days.... but drink it up regardless!!! (that's a bit of rhetoric actually but feel free to enlighten me ^_~)

*kicks ren*, just start working again already, damn it!

Well it looks like discussion died out completely after the last ep (even though the subs are still far from done).

I'm reporting here about the just released OVA, which focuses on JUN!
