i was just thinking about how sometimes a great love or hatred of something tends to blind that person to either it’s flaws or its highlights respectively, and then i wondered if i was doing that with flip flappers. so i’m going to compile a list of the pros and cons of the show.
great underlying story/message thing
there’s a squishy green thing that’s a rabbit somehow
animation is gorgeous
the op and ed are both really nice songs
op has a lot of symbolism and foreshadowing
great variation in color
really colorful in general actually
it’s shoujo ai, which is pretty uncommon compared to shounen ai
little to no discourse in the fandom
canon lesbians (or just not-straights)
all the characters have interesting motivations and feel very human
there’s a character named dr. SALT
can be interpreted as platonic, if the characters are into platonic “i love you”s
you have to deal with me in the tag all the time
it’s like being on acid for the first few episodes
confusing plot like wth is going on towards the end??
animation quality goes kinda whUMPH on the last episode
not much fic/art/people generating content out there
there will only ever be one season (though potential ovas!!! unlikely, however, considering the show didn’t make much money)
f a n s e r v i c e (ignorable in my opinion, but still there)
a few of the characters require a lot of looking between the lines to understand and have no development
there was that one character, nyunyu, where??? what was her purpose???
w h e r e is the official merch
the robot is kind of a perverted and it’s creepy
EPISODE 5 WAS CREEPY AS HECK ACTUALLY WOW
the line “i’ve loved you ever since you were born” coming from papika. considering the context, it sounds a little pedophiliac
feel free to add to any side if you feel i missed anything!!
