Smile of the Arsnotoria the Animation 咲う アルスノトリア すんっ！
Warau Arsnotoria Sun begin in the magical academic city of Ashram, girls known as Pentagrams study general education, magic, and etiquette to become proper ladies. Hidden from the rest of the world, the school is like a secret garden that is home to blossoming flowers. However, bugs sensitive to magic may target and trample them; as one of their tasks, the girls must exterminate these insects.
The smileless Pentagram Arsnotoria lives in the fifth dorm house alongside her adored roommates: the cheerful Mell, the self-paced Little Alberta, the confident Picatrix, and the cool Abramelin. No matter what time of day, they hang out together as much as possible, and even throw tea parties in their secret room after completing their duties. The girls live in peace as they work toward their goal—but there may be more to Ashram and the Pentagrams beyond the calm life they have come to cherish.
Watch Warau Arsnotoria Sun Online
Imagine that one episode of Lucky Star where they talk about chocolate coronets, but instead stretched out to 18 minutes with a sudden swerve into hyper-violence starring completely different characters in a completely different artstyle, and you have Warau Arsnotoria Sun! Perhaps the ultimate example of Cute Girls Doing Nothing in the Reiwa era.
For me personally, I love the super comfy vibes the show brings every week. And very helpfully and hilariously, the arrival of the Knights is always preceded by a big “Warning” label so you can totally skip them if all you want to see is Kuno Misaki making strange noises. And by sheer luck I am also a fan of the latter, and moreso than any other show this season, there is a lot of Kuno Misaki making strange nosies. It’s absolutely adorable. I know it adds absolutely nothing to the story or characters, but I am not watching this show for thoughtful character development or a great plot, I watch this show to relax and listen to Kuno Misaki.
At the end of the day, this show is still a mobage ad, but as far as ads go it’s a pretty bad one since I have zero intention of even picking up the mobage if the girls are gonna be fighting the knights. The anime focusing entirely, and I mean, entirely on the Cute Girls Do Nothing aspect is certainly bold at least.
While the out-of-place hyperviolence has no place in this show, it does get one final hilarious payoff at the very end, and upon realizing what happened, I broke and just started laughing like a maniac. LIDENFILMS pulled a fast one under us and I was kicking myself for not realizing it earler.
Warau Arsnotoria Sun is tough to recommend, as even by CGDCT standards it is lacking in humor and character. But if you just wanna relax or put something in the background, or even listen to Kuno Misaki’s soundbank, this anime will be a treat.
