So, this is made by studio drop. They are a brand-new studio from the looks of things, but they have worked on parts of Boruto.

Ahhhh That explains why this is the debut for most of the seiyuu. Only one of the main three has been in other shows.

There is a lot riding on this then. I hope that the anime does well!

You know, this almost seems like Dennou Coil. A kid goes missing etc. But of course, no technology. I wonder how it will do as slice of life...

Synopsis

Minori has always been labeled as a child who is bullied. Takashi and Kyouko wish to see Minori’s smile. So, one afternoon on a rainy day, they call out to her with all of their might. However, not only are they unable to see her true smile, her health deteriorates and she stops coming to school.

Two months have passed and one day, a mysterious letter is delivered to Takashi and Kyouko. With no returnee address and no way to respond, the letter invites them to a summer festival in the next town over…

Three Episode Impression

Clione no Akari is an anime that I just couldn’t help but be put off by. Why? Well, first off, the animation for this anime is horrible. It feels really outdated and the plot is about children. Not chibis, but children. Then the actual plot rolls in and I realized that this anime is about the problem about bullying in schools. Minori is bullied just because she’s ill and it’s really frustrating. What’s even more frustrating are the mediocre attempts Kyouko and Takashi put in to stop the bullying: NONE. Yeah, they stand by and watch as Minori gets bullied and feel bad about it, but they can only stop it in their minds. By this time my blood is boiling and I just want to drop this anime, but for me, I can tell that there is more to be seen in this anime. I feel like an anime about bullying is important to stop bullying in schools so I’m more than willing to continue watching this anime, even if Takashi and Kyouko decide to be friends with Minori (something I don’t support considering how cowardly they both are). I won’t say that Clione is the anime to watch this season, but it’s 9 minutes and it seems to have an important message so why not?
