The best student council is back!
|I’m not so sure who watches Seitokai Yakuindomo except me and lvlln, but I believe it is one of the best anime GoHands ever made. Too bad it’s underrated, since it has some of the best things that will make the audience laugh in tears. For those who haven’t watched it, do watch it! You won’t regret it|
The first episode of Seitokai Yakuindomo started strongly by exposing the audience with its type of joke in Engrish and, out of all people, showing the dog first. The audience doesn’t need to remember what kind of anime SYD was because the first episode reminded us right away. There is also no need for the audience to open MAL whatsoever to search for the characters, since the characters were introduced with a straightforward manner with those big letters and perverted jokes that always popped out from Shino (president) and Aria (secretary). I do like how straightforward the first episode was at re-introducing the characters and so on. It lacks complexity and fuss, which is very SYD.
As for the content of SYD, I can’t say much about it except the fact that it’s still as great as season one’s. Just like lvlln said on twitter, SYD has the tendency to repeat the same style of joke in every possible scene and in every possible manner, but somehow, it still works . Unlike Recorder & Ransel, which jokes literally became dead less tha halfway of the anime, the jokes in SYD will always sound refreshing, and it will never fail at making the audience giggle in excitement. SYD was great, and it’s still great until now.
If there is one thing that’s different from the first season, it has to be the animation. I can see they decided to fuss some CG into the setting and some of the scenes, and it turned out to be… Decent, I guess.
I have stopped complaining about CG after I watched Ars Nova. What I really like about the first episode is the angles of the camera. It seems that the director experienced a lot in this episode, since every possible angle is made possible in this episode. I think it’s nice compared to the dull angles that were used in season one. Moreover, the characters actually moved instead of using still images, which is a good thing for a first episode I guess. Overall, there were many improvements made already when it comes to the animation and so on, and I see this as a good way to start the anime. Let’s just hope it stays like this until the last episode. Impossible
It’s hard to make a full post of Seitokai Yakuindomo. It’s something that cannot be conveyed with words since the full experience can only be made possible by watching the anime. So I won’t continue making posts of SYD, but I’m still watching it until the end. I’m hooked by this anime already, and I’m sure many will if they watch it. There will be no posts, but I still recommend this anime I everybody’s watch list. Do eeeeeeet.
