[Review] Dog Days Season 1


Time again for another short anime review!


To kick off, let's go right into who I think would enjoy it.

If you like laid back, comedy/adventure/romance anime like I do, you will definitely enjoy this. :)
The main plot point of the show is about waging "war" between countries.
The thing is.. nobody dies, or gets hurt.
Instead, when defeated, they turn into these...

...adorable little cat/dog/bunny poof-ball things.
It's pretty great visually, and even the "background fighter" characters are cute.
Though cheaply drawn, they reminded me a lot of Fire Emblem character icons.. pretty awesome.

So, anyone looking for an overdose on cute characters, (so long as you like cat/dog/bunny ears) this is for you.
See?

Come on.. you know it's cute. ;)

On to the actual story/plot.. (I'll save the romance for last.)

The main guy is summoned as a hero to help win some battles.
The battles and war actually have meaning.. and it'll get more into it as it goes.
There's a cool sort-of rivalry going on.. and something darker going on behind the scenes that drives the plot forward.
It's actually very well done (especially for your usual cutesy, adventure story), and I liked it quite a bit.

On to the romance aspect!

The main characters, are Princess Millhiore, and Cinque Izumi.
As always, I'm a sap for cutesy stories, and this doesn't disappoint. :)
They are very cute together, going on early morning walks, playing frisbee.. and a couple absolutely adorable petting scenes.
(Ya.. that sounds weird.. w/e.. it's cute. :P haha)


One last thing worth mentioning, is the transport they have.
They ride adorable Chocobo-ish things.. yup! Now you pretty much have to see it. :)

So in the end, it's a fun show.
A great shonen/fantasy/adventure with just enough style and story to keep you interested the whole time.
There is a second season already out, and while I have yet to watch it, I'll review it later on... probably. :)

So until then.. let me know if you're interested in it!
Look boring to you?
Think you'll like it, but want to know something else?
I'd be glad to discuss/answer anything in the comments. :)

The 1st and 2nd season are available on Crunchyroll for streaming.
Enjoy!
