Not surprisingly, I cover anime“>She is yours this chapter. Not only did I review the first volumes of the manga, but I was also present at the anime premiere in anime gallery 2023. This is the second time I’ve watched those first two episodes, and I’ve already written about them before, so it’s hard to talk about things I haven’t mentioned before. Please bear with me. To start, the anime“>She is yours The anime builds its narrative slightly differently from the original manga. The original manga series leaned more towards comedy and reaction-based humor for most of the first part, without a real shred of seriousness. I liked this approach because it served two purposes: It generated an air of mystery around the titular character while also creating a good setup for the appropriate punchlines. anime“>She is yours He does not get into serious matters until the end of the first volume, where he begins to mix comedy and drama.
Studio Statelight seems to be going for a mix of comedy and drama from the get-go. I think there are pros and cons to this approach. One pro is that things will feel less jarring when we get into the more serious elements of the story later because there are already enough predictions playing out alongside the comedy-charged Devil’s Contest. The downside, however, is that I feel this approach affects the comedy of the show. anime“>She is yours He’s a very goofy character, and he plays such a goof that we don’t really know what he’s thinking. This is good for suspense and comedy purposes. when Vermilio insists anime“>She is yours He hides malicious intentions behind his smile and everyone dismisses it, it’s even funnier in the manga because that comical atmosphere early on gives the impression that there’s at least a chance that she’s so excited for nothing. However, it is clear that anime“>She is yours He’s hiding something serious right from the start when you think about how the anime framed it along with all that dark foreshadowing. We just don’t know what exactly he’s hiding.
That’s all I’ll say about the differences because these first two episodes pretty much cover most of the first volume. The jury is still out on whether this incredibly fast pace is a benefit or a harm. I suppose after the next couple of episodes, we’ll have caught up to the point I read about in the manga, so I’m looking forward to seeing how much ground this anime adaptation covers or if there are more deviations in the narrative progression. I’m not saying any of this as a way to criticize the anime quote; I like when anime quotes try to do something different with the material. This stuff makes use of animation, from the fire effects to the goofy voice acting. But for now, I want to see exactly how the story will pull me from this point forward.
