Crunchyroll aired a sneak preview of episode 1 of Hiiro no Kakera so time for me to rip it to shreds cause I played the game and well DEEN
Let’s start with the QUALITY. Deen never fails to deliver their QUALITY animation!
And in case you were curious what the above hottie actually looks like in the game:
I did like how they managed to fit most of the introductory “CG scenes” into the first episode so for kicks & giggles let’s compare!
Alright pretty good, I think DEEN can handle this right?
….alright Tamaki’s got a different outfit on but I guess she looks okay…
Uh should I be happy that the anime makes him less of a creeper…?
If this wasn’t bad enough Crunchyroll added salt on the wound by making my BABY FOX NUKO A FEMALE ( ಠ益ಠ )
Hey Crunchyroll in case you haven’t done your research, O-chan is as HE. Observe below:
DUDE MAN MALE ♂. Please fix it when the actual episode airs gdi. （ಠ_ಠ）
My other gripes besides quality and genderbending poor O-chan are O-chan’s horrible voice. It was so adorable in the game and they should have just used the game’s voice actor or something cause the anime one grates my ears =_=. Also they keep making Tamaki like WAY TOO NICE. Where’s my bitchy heroine? She seems so generic and uninteresting cause a lot of the scenes where she would get to shine with her bitchyness..have been removed. Meh. Also they changed some side characters voice actors – noteably so far Kiyono. Ugh she was pretty annoying in the game as it is but they found an even more annoying one to fill in her spot! Yippie!
I’ll probably still keep watching out of some sort of inner obligation cause I played every single Hiiro game released so it feels like it’s my DUTY to continue The full series will start airing in April so hopefully by then I can try to forgive DEEN & Crunchyroll…or maybe not.
