So, yet another Key anime we thought we might never get has aired-
Before I say anything, I wanted to say that planetarian is a series I don’t think is necessarily hard to adapt, but I feel as if capturing the tone and feel is the the real challenge here.
I was very worried about this idea, and how they would go about it. After seeing the episode, I don’t think I’m too worried anymore.
I think they captured everything that needed to be captured in the first episode really well, and to be honest I don’t have anything negative to say about it. It was paced well, the new OST is very fitting and I much enjoyed it. Lastly, the animation felt very consistent and smooth.
The thing I was most surprised by was the ED. When I first saw it a while back, it felt very out of place and unfitting for what planetarian is, which then had me taken aback when I found myself really enjoying it and seeing it in a totally new light from before. Sure, the chibi style is maybe a bit too far, but it didn’t actually bother me too much. I’m not really sure I can describe why my thoughts changed, other than I feel as if it portrays who Yumemi is in some way.
In any case, I’m very, very excited for episode 2. I love how davidproduction is handling this so far! :masgrin:
