Gugure! Kokkuri-san Season 2 Release Date
Gugure! Kokkuri-san is a ‘good’ anime where the term ‘good’ surely requires a lot of explanation. For while I enjoyed it to some extent, I won’t be extremely eager to recommend it to someone else. Let me explain. Unlike some animes that might not mess up in various ways but their positives are not so appealing either to get them a 9 or 10, Kokkuri san has both positives and negatives.
Plot wise, there isn’t much except the appearance of the different ghostly characters in the anime and how interact with Kohina – the protagonist of sorts around which the entire story revolves. Thus it is an episodic anime, other than the characters popping at intervals, there is no bigger plot. And honestly the plot here doesn’t matter as much as the characters and the entertainment they give. However there are certain themes tackled in separate episodes that are well developed and rather appealing to watch. They can be given credit.
Gugure! Kokkuri-san! is one of those episodic slice-of-life anime that will hook you up in the beginning of the series but tends to become boring when the same slapstick comedy is repeated. Overall, the show has some good points and touching episodes and some fail to amuse you.
The opening is cleverly done, full of personality, and of course catchy as hell. The ending is good as well, and the shows OST is funny sounding… in the best way possible. As for the art I’d say its completely average. I mean sure it has a certain style to it, but in comparison to many other shows released this year there really is nothing notable about it.
From the first 2 episodes you will know whether this show is for you or not. The series seems to enjoy taunting its viewers with scenarios that in many other shows would be clear indicators of: DRAMA INCOMING! only to slap you along with your expectations across the face. This happens a lot. But its FUNNY EVERY TIME. Although I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to see some drama play out. Either way the synopsis pretty much says it all, and the way the story presents itself is favorable.
