Fortune is a blessing: Fortune Arterial: Akai Yakusoku

Hey all.

Eroge origin. Anime lasted for 12 eps with 1 OVA.

Storyline is pretty decent. Setting and concept was pretty unique. Execution felt pretty lackluster. Pacing was pretty decent, 12 eps felt rather short though. Character developments is above average. Comedy isn’t really a lot, but this show is entertaining enough for me to be a timekiller. Plot twists did brought a bit of a shock, with the sudden vampire revelation. This show may slowly become a harem show, but it’s not really forceful and felt more subtle. Climax was pretty entertaining, but the ending became quite anti-climatic. Overall, this show is pretty nicely done, but not exciting or amazing. OVA was just a fanservice ep.

Animations by Zexcs and Feel. Even with 2 studios combined, quality still felt pretty subpar compared to its competitors, this show is 2010 but it felt like a 2007-8 show. They still animate in 720p as a budget cutting measure but I don’t see why do you need 2 studios to animate this, when 1 studio is sufficient. Character designs were great, they were nice enough to retain the art from the eroge, so thats a plus for them.

Music is excellent. The BGMs were great. OP was fantastic, ED was a little weird, but the IN was just fantastic. This may be the anime’s key selling point.

The cast is pretty ok. Ono Daisuke, Kanda Rie, Minegishi Yukari, Narumi Erika, Nabatame Hitomi, Taguchi Hiroko, Suwabe Junichi, Tsuboi Tomohiro, Ito Kentaro, Hoshino Chizuko, Mizuhashi Kaori. It’s pretty nice, some voices did throw me off guard.


Story: 8/10

Art: 7.5/10

Music: 8/10

VAs: 8/10

Recommended to watch as a timekiller.
