What is this. The bonus section for Jump comics? Can you call this an anime? You might be able to gather viewers that are OK with just listening to certain voice actors, but the plot is terrible. There’s no cohesion in the costumes. The voice acting lineup is impressive though. That’s it. I don’t get the live-action part at the end. I have no reason to want to watch these new voice actors, and there’s no point if they haven’t voiced the characters in the first part. I’m just forced to watch some boring skit performed by people I don’t know. It’s a promotional piece that you can’t get into. I get that they want to promote these new voice actors, and so the first part is probably just slapped together. 15 minutes is too long. Just do it on a niconico channel.

This is a sentai type anime with voice actors as the main characters…It’s like a manga and they basically just show you each frame and read the lines…it was unexpected! Monsters attack the Ikebukuro Otome Road, and it has quite a few gags! It’s sort of like an anime version of the Akiba Rangers. The sudden live-action part scared me! Having a live-action part with completely different voice actors is so..different, I didn’t know what to think.

I got excited looking at the title.

Then I watched it and was disappointed.

If you like new voice actors, you should check this out.

As an anime though, it’s a bit weird. Was the live action part at the end the main part?

Were the live action people even in the anime? It really seems like a bonus feature for something else.

From old to new, I’m watching all kinds of anime. Robot, special powers, love, slice-of-life, I will eat anything! My favorites are “Saint Seiya,” “Penguindrum,” and “Pani Poni dash!”
