This week for Anime Sunday I’m covering another new series from the Fall 2016 season! It’s my Flip Flappers Episode 01 Impressions!

Plot Synopsis: Cocona, a cautious girl by nature, is dragged into another dimension called “Pure Illusion” by Papika, a strange and headstrong girl. With a new set of rules and strange organizations, Cocona’s life is turned upside down.

Plot: The plot is pretty sparse in this first episode, and a lot of stuff didn’t make a lot of sense. Maybe it will improve in later episodes, but nevertheless Flip Flappers didn’t quite manage to grab my attention enough for me to follow this series each week. I’ll probably binge watch the entire series in the very near future.

Characters: Cocona is a fairly normal girl, albeit very shy and not very open to other people. Maybe that’s why I enjoy her as a character so much, because that is a quality that I myself also have. Papika on the other hand is very strange, and while she’s not grating to me, there were points where she got very close to being so. The rest of the cast seems to not have been introduced quite yet.

Art: The art is quite good, but definitely not ufotable quality level. At least it’s better than anything Studio Deen can make though.

Music: The music was alright, but it wasn’t super amazing either.

Overall: This may or may not end up being a great series, but for right now I’ll be putting it on hold to deal with more interesting stories for other projects of mine.

For those who like: Magical Girls, Adventure, Action, Yuri?, Drama, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Decent Plot, Intersting Leads, Great Art, Okay Musical Score.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.
