Recorder to Randoseru – First Impression
Episode 1 – Atsushi and Atsumi
The show had turned out to be totally different to what I had expected.
I had expected this to be some form of slice-of-life series attempting to warm the viewers’ hearts. But instead, this first episode of the “3 minutes series” turned out to be more of a comedy than anything else.
“Miyagawa Atsushi is an 11-year-old boy who is 180 centimeters tall. Since he has a grown-up looking build but acts his age, he has always been running into troubles. On the other hand, his 17-year-old elder sister Atsumi is only 137 centimeters tall. Even though she has a childish looking build, Atsumi takes good care of Atsushi.” – My Anime List
The first episode follows Atsuhi as he prepares for a recorder exam and ends up being mistaken as a pervert due to his unusual “circumstances”.
To say that it was odd would be an understatement.
Seeing a manly and charming character such as Atsushi, act as a little kid was really, really, weird. The show definitely played up the whole “oddity” of his situation by turning, what would normally be a normal situation, into a comedic moment due to the circumstances.
There really isn’t too much to this series apart from it providing a few chuckles. So if you are wondering if it is worth your time, I would say that since it is only 3 mins long, it wouldn’t be too much of a waste of time as a random humorous watch. Whilst the jokes in this episode were humorous due to the concept being “fresh” in our minds, I feel that it might turn boring and dull to watch the show each week if the jokes were to only revolve around the siblings’ predicament.
Was this what you had expected it to be?
