No Game, No Life Episode 1 - Impressions and Notes

Another entry in my note-taking and thought-jotting series of posts on currently running shows. This write-up focuses on first impressions of the show, and the world, and how "marvelous" our protagonists are, while marveling at the shiny colours.

As always, the notes were taken while actually watching the episode, and rather than just repeating what you've already watched, elaborate upon it, assuming you've already watched the episode.

I came to this show expecting dumb fun. Vibrant colours, badass characters, you know the drill. Episode 1 had a lot to cover, so most "fights" were essentially "Hm, they're cheating. I will cheat as well! Well, I won." - That's... not what I was looking for. Show us a psychological standoff, /emphasize/ how extravagant the cheats are. Come on, make a /spectacle/ out of it. Otherwise we're left with a dumb show with no fun, though the pretty colours are definitely there.

In short, a trashy-fun show can't forget the... fun.
