First Impression: Litchi☆Hikari Club

In my preview, I said that this show looks pretty awesome. Either that or it's another scam but the overall character designs from the poster sure is intriguing.

From what I understand, this show which is also known as Lychee Light Club, is an adaptation of a horror manga with the same title. Please do not let the horror tag turn you off  though since this is supposedly to be a comedy show as well. I wonder how this show will translate from manga to anime since it's only 2 minutes long.

Well, worry not. Though it's short, it didn't waste any time with stupid OP or ED. It get straight to the point by introducing us to the characters in a way that won't confused us much. There are 9 boys who are in the club, a robot and a girl name Kanon. Zera is their leader who I think is not much of a leader. Also, I think they came up with the horror tag thanks to the Lychee (that's the robot they created) that listens to Kanon otherwise, this show is brimming with comedic values.

Sadly, I do not recognized any of the seiyuu (which goes to show that my anime skills are not as sharp as it used to be) but I think they sound perfect for their characters so no complaining. I also approved of the arts and character designs of this show. It fits with the whole comedy-psychological-horror theme of the show.

I read reviews that said this show is so far off from the original source. Thank goodness that I didn't read the manga then otherwise perhaps I too would have raged. I ended up enjoying it instead.

I guess this isn't something I will recommend for an avid manga fan but if you are not, I don't think you'll regret watching this. Try it.
