    I recently watched the 2nd and 3rd episodes of Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm. After watching them, I have a different idea on why Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm didn't sell better:

    Spoiler for Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm spoilers:


    Episode 2 was pretty good, and Episode 3 was loads of fun. "Everyday" flying in the show is kinda dull, but the in-match action is very good and solid.

    I liked Sansha Sanyou Episode 1 more than I did Anne Happy Episode 1. However, I also liked Anne Happy's 2nd episode more than I did it's 1st. So it's a tough call until I see Sansha Sanyou's 2nd episode. So far, I'd give SS a slight edge.

    Anne Happy has very good comedy overall, and made me laugh more than SS has. But you're right that SS feels warmer (probably due to a realism edge). Bakuon is pretty much the best of both worlds, though, so it's my favorite of the SoL/"cute girls" 2016 shows so far.


    On the topic of Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm... Between you and Kona, I've now been convinced to give it a 2nd chance. I intend to tell you my take on it after I've watched more of it.

    Oh, and I also checked out the first episode of Bungou Stray Dogs, thanks to what you wrote on it at RRRound Table. Very good 1st episode. Yes, like you said, it's smooth. My only criticism is that it might have relied just a little too heavily on flashbacks, but aside from that, very smooth. Seamless blend of comedy with serious storytelling.

    Between Bakuon, Flying Witch, Anne Happy, and Sansha Sanyou, this is shaping up to be a very good Spring 2016 season for SoL/"cute girls" shows. Bakuon is probably my favorite of those 4 so far, but Sansha Sanyou is probably 2nd out of that list for me.
    I was wondering how it would compare to Anne Happy for you. I liked Sansha Sanyou better - I like the show's "warmth" - but wonder if my low evaluations for Anne Happy have had an element of self fulfilling prophecy to them because I went into that show expecting it's bizarre sense of humour to come at the expense of connection to the characters. By contrast, I went into Sansha Sanyou with little in the way of expectations either way and came out highly impressed.

    One other thing that surprised me about the show - it's based on a manga that has been running since January 2003. It actually predates Lucky Star and Hidamari Sketch, which got their adaptations nine years ago. If I had to speculate why it's being adapted now, it's by the same mangaka as Engaged to the Unidentified, the 2014 adaptation of which sold fairly well.

    IMO, it's one of those shows that gets better as it goes. I had similar complaints about the opener, but thought the "Flying Circus" scenes got better later on. Asuka annoyed me less once she started to gain some skill and share screentime with other girls (though Mashiro can also be annoying) too.

    I was probably going to watch Sansha Sanyou eventually anyway, but your wall message made me decide to watch it's first episode today, and I'm certainly glad I did. So thanks for that!

    Yes, Sansha Sanyou is off to a very good start. Highly pleasant watch, and it's actually kinda nice to watch a SoL "cute girls" show that is playing it straight with minimal fancy elements (like motorcycle love or flying witches or bizarre misfortune ).

    Between Bakuon, Flying Witch, Anne Happy, and Sansha Sanyou, this is shaping up to be a very good Spring 2016 season for SoL/"cute girls" shows. Bakuon is probably my favorite of those 4 so far, but Sansha Sanyou is probably 2nd out of that list for me.

    BTW, did you watch Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm last season? Just saw it's sales numbers today - around 1K blurays which is pretty disappointing for what I'd consider probably the best VN adaptation of the past couple years.
    I only watched an episode of it. From what I can recall, it's because the lead girl really annoyed me. I had considered picking it back up on Kona's recommendation, but I never did get around to it. But maybe I'll give it another shot sometime later.

    Perhaps some BD/DVD buyers were like me, and found the lead girl annoying? ^_^;; Given how little I watched, that's the only idea I can offer up right now. If I do watch more of Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm, I'll give you a more thorough take on the show. Well, another thing I didn't like about it's first episode is that it somehow made flying look strangely dull to me - This being something that Flying Witch did much better with its first episode, imo.

    I'd like your take on this when you get a chance.

    Just so you know, I just finished watching Anthem of the Heart.

    I intend to have a lot to say about it soon. I have some mixed feelings about it, but it's definitely worth the watch. Thanks for recommending it to me, more or less.

    I honestly think that you might be downright offended by Ace Attorney Episode 1... and if you are, I would not blame you in the least. ^_^;;

    I recently made a post on the Winter season thread on RRRound Table. I'd definitely be interested in hearing your take on that post, and/or in reading a similar season thoughts post by yourself. I'm curious to know what shows you've kept up with, and what shows you're liking.

    Thanks to you and Darthtabby for your recent help in PMs. I'll keep those shows in mind.
