Spring Anime 2011 Impressions: Dog Days

Posted by Neko Kyou in Thoughts on April 6th, 2011

Dog Days is really quite different than what I imagined it would be. It starts off pretty standard for a fantasy story and makes you believe that this is really about a kid getting whisked off to another world in order to become a war hero and lead the underdogs to victory.

But just as the plot starts to sink in a little and the war begins, everything gets thrown off a little when the “war” is really a large scale reality show / obstacle course much like Takeshi’s Castle and Wipeout.

And to be honest, I quite like it lol.

I was afraid that Dog Days would end up being another generic fantasy medieval warfare but the silliness that comes from how the war is played out is actually interesting.

Dog Days might actually end up as one of the more entertaining series among the spring anime season for 2011.
