Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi – first impressions

“Long, long ago – well, it wasn’t particularly long ago, there was a place called Otogibana City, and inside that city, there was a school called Otogi Academy…”

This is Ookami. She frowns a lot.

Wow that title is a damn mouthful to say in full. One of the most hyped series of the season had a pretty mediocre start, and to be honest, I’m not really surprised. I found the concept weak when I read about it prior to watching, and I was relatively surprised how much attention this show was given.

Wow a pointless fanservice shot... which wasn't that great to start off with anyway...

The characters are pretty bland: you obviously have your brusque, cocky tsundere type Ookami-san, who’s not too different from Mikoto from To Aru Kagaku no Railgun (another J.C. Staff work). Remove even more boobage, her lightning abilities and add ‘neko neko knuckles’, or what I like to call, ‘them kitten mittens’, and you’ve pretty much got our female lead. The male lead Morino is *surprise surprise* a nice guy who so happens to have really retarded people problems.

FALCON PUUUUUNCH!!!11030one

Toss in a maid with a wanktarded and inexplicable fetish for returning favours, a quirky-as-hell wannabe magician Majo, a registered and laid-back leader, and you’ve got your moe rom-com series right there. Meh. I also feel pretty iffy on how Ringo is pictured. Not only is she voiced by the same seiyuu, but she pretty much looks exactly like Komoe-sensei from the Railgun and Index series, just with red hair.

I wish my eyes could light up like hers when I watch this...

It’s not all bad though. Some of the fairytale material they play with is pretty funny. The show generally is pretty humorous I admit. The pumpkin-cycle was ridiculous but pretty amusing, and the whole play on Cinderalla at the end was probably the best part of the show.

Okay, I admit, she's cute. But seriously W T F

I know a lot of people will still keep on watching this bland show, but that’s okay. Everyone has their own tastes. However, unless this show improves quickly, I’ll count this out of this year’s watchlist.

OP: Not very special at all. The J-Pop used is conventional and hardly worth listening to.

Ookami spends half her day boxing, and the other half frowning.

    Hrmmm. I liked the satire in this episode and I’m looking forward to the rest of the series for something light and interesting…I do admit though….it better not be Railgun but with Neko Neko Knuckles…And I hate the narrator. Damn it’s Kuroko (but I guess not as annoying).
