Tsuujou Kougeki ga Zentai Kougeki de Ni-kai Kougeki no Okaasan wa Suki Desu ka? [Review]
- Source Material: Light novel
- Studio: J.C.Staff
- Genres: Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy
- Synopsis: “Masato Ōsuki has been unwittingly thrown into an RPG world with his doting mother close behind as part of a secret government scheme. As an avid gamer, Masato is eager to show off his skills but that’s hard to do when his mom is an insanely overpowered, dual-wielding, multi-target specialist.”
Imagine finally being able to start your adventure in a fully immersive video game world…only to find out that your mom is joining you! The premise of the show is interesting but it doesn’t quite sustain itself long enough to be a full-length story. The main point of this adventure that Masato and Mamako, his mother, are on is to deepen the bond that they have together. The events that lead to that moment are hilarious, embarrassing, and 90% fanservice for Mamako stans. Don’t expect a lot of story development, expect a lot of Mamako moe.
Artwork & Animation:
Okaa-san Online’s artwork and color palette pack a punch and I really enjoy all of the key visuals throughout the show. The attention to detail on certain scenes…are immaculate and extremely tasteful if you catch my drift! And while those scenes are great eye candy, the other “regular” scene, unfortunately, lacks the effort. As anyone would expect, the rest of the show is a bit plain and the battle scenes are there for the fantasy and gaming aesthetic and typically don’t last longer than a couple of minutes.
The shining light of the show, the only thing brighter is Mamako’s motherly love! That being said, I’m still surprised at the amount of character development throughout the show! There are a lot of touching moments featuring Wise and Medhi regarding their own problem and overall makes Masato rethink his relationship with his mother. There’s a great synergy between all of the characters and rarely is there ever a dull moment!
Sound (OST & Voice Acting):
Unlike the other elements of the show, the soundtrack is actually really straight forward. Most of the soundtrack has a lot of fantasy/medieval influence from the game setting and the rest are slower piano pieces. The piano pieces were my personal favorite as they were usually the choice when any of the comedic scenes were playing. The articulate melodies pair really well with Masato’s straight-man retorts!
I got a kick out of every episode and personally found the show very enjoyable! It’s worth a watch if you’re into this spectrum of anime (specifically ecchi). This show isn’t for the inexperienced, best not to suggest this one to a casual anime watcher!
I would be lying if I said the premise of the story didn’t interest me. There’s a type of aesthetic that comes with anime moms and to have that paired with a shounen adventure, well, it’ll keep you on your toes that’s for sure!
Best Girl: Wise
Wise design and color palette had already sealed the deal for me but when I got to more of her throughout the show, I couldn’t help but need more! I love her gag moments where she can’t cast spells and is utterly useless for the rest of the battle! That and her interactions with the other characters tend to be the most entertaining. Plus 100 points for being a tsundere too!
