One-Shot for the Weekend! Cencoroll (センコロール)

Cencoroll (センコロール)

Producer/Director/Creator: Uki Atsuya

Producer: Aniplex

Genre: Action, Sci-fi

When a gigantic, unearthly monster suddenly looms on the skyline of a Japanese city, the expected occurs—the Japan Self-Defense Forces roll out the tanks while the public panics. Nobody knows what it is or where it came from, but Yuki, a bold and inquisitive teenage girl, has a secret that might be a useful clue. Her friend Tetsu has been clandestinely caring for a bizarre creature called Cenco, which will soon prove itself to have some remarkable, even impossible characteristics.

Rated PG-13



YES for all of you who didn’t realise my absence I am BACK. Now chungky and I have realised that lately MW’s been kinda dead since we’ve both been pretty preoccupied, but now I’m (slightly) more free while chungky goes ahead and crams for exams. Hence, therefore, as a result, conclusively (I’ve been writing essays), MW shall bear the brunt of my rants until the big boss gets back >=D

Anyway! Yes! One-shot for the weekend! You can tell how inactive we’ve been with this being the 3rd one-shot under our recent posts but whatever. I’ll make it up to you by presenting Cencoroll.

This is a little different from our usual manga one-shot, but I thought that it’d be an interesting change since we’retrying to generate more anime posts. I chose Cencoroll mainly because the background of its production involved a lot of hard work – by one guy. Basically the dude (Uki Atsuya) practically wrote, designed, directed and animated the whole thing by himself. Wish I put that much work into my studies.

Contrary to the trailer, Cencoroll has a very monotone atmosphere going on. Rather than making the whole thing boring though, I find that it kinda gives more or a ‘real’ feel (or, as real as it could get). Rather than having some sort of Megazord (remember this!?! Guess what generation I’m from!!) or mahou shoujo transformation, the pace of the whole thing makes it seem like something really ordinary is going on. Except that. You know. Living, massive blobby white creatures and buildings getting blown up aren’t really ordinary.

And. Okay. Another reason was that I snitched watching Cencoroll when I was supposed to read up on my neurons.

Rating: 4.6/5.0

You may notice I’m a little hyped up here. My exams just finished like 3 hours ago. NYAAAAAHAHAHAHHAHAHA

Have an awesome, awesome weekend!!
