This Art Club Has A Problem! – Review (Spoiler Free)

One of these days, I’ll never have to write “This Art Club Has A Problem!” in a post title ever again. Unfortunately the time is not yet, so until then my blog will remain a This Art Club Has A Problem! / Konobi tribute. Many people have already come across this blog looking for details on specific episodes of Konobi, only to get a themes list or some nonsense theme post. In the end, traffic is traffic, so I’ll take it.

While there are a few more Konobi posts to go, I will sum up my final thoughts on the anime here. Thanks to the Collab, and the variety of posts we’ve all created for it, I feel like I’ve been exposed to Konobi far more than most anime I’ve watched. I sort of feel like a Konobi expert as a result.

So how did Konobi do?

This Art Club Had A Problem… (Episode 12)

Thank goodness we got to see Collette in the final episode – I was getting a bit worried.

You may think that this is the end, but there are a few more Konobi related posts that I’d like to write in the coming weeks (even though my blog has been plagued with Konobi posts for the last several months haha). A recap post, a post listing everyone’s posts, and a post to talk about the collab and my thoughts on it – how it went, what I’d consider improving, etc. I have learned quite a bit and have plenty of ideas thanks to this collab. So stay tuned for more Konobi posts I guess!

All this time I’ve been putting something off – core themes. And so, not to be outdone by Jon, I too have decided to take on multiple themes for the final episode of Konobi. In fact, I have chosen three core themes + one episodic theme. Basically, in order to not be a liar, I have decided to complete all of the core themes I didn’t do, because I said I would try and cover them all at some point (the episodic themes were just getting too fun!), and I can’t turn down bashing Subaru.

For what better way to end the the collab than with a bang?

Farewell Collette.

This Art Club Has A Problem! – Episode 12 Themes List

This is it, the final episode of the collab.
What a journey it’s been!

Thanks to everyone who has taken part in the collab, and thanks to everyone who has been following along and reading all of the collab posts! This has been a quite long-winded collab, I don’t think I truly understood how much of an undertaking this was going to be, so I really appreciate everyone who followed along. It’s been fun and I hope everyone else enjoyed it as well. Anime really is more fun when you can talk / write about it with others.

If I ever did something like this again, I’d maybe consider something more condensed or more spaced out, like posts for every 3 episodes or something. One post per episode is quite a bit. On the plus side though it did help me employ a more consistent posting schedule, and it’s nice to be able to examine each individual episode like this. Konobi ended up being a great choice for this kind of “theme” collab I think.

I also think a collab like this with a discussion focus instead of a theme focus would be fun if paired with a more serious anime. An idea for another time – unless someone reading this would be interested in starting something like that – count me in!

Anyways, back to the topic at hand.

Konobi 12:59

The theme I chose this week was “pause at 12:59 and write about the image you see”.
This was one of those high risk, high reward themes. It’s also a theme that I should be able to wrap up with not many words.

I had to pick a random time that would hopefully yield a very interesting image, which in the grand scheme of things, is unlikely. What are the chances that the time I picked for the theme would end up being something amazing? Well, there are about 24 minutes in an episode, which is 1440 seconds. I’m going to guess that maybe 300 seconds were of something interesting this episode. Which would make the final chance 20.8%. So I guess I had a pretty good chance of picking a time that would produce an interesting image after all.

This Art Club Has A Problem! Episode 7 – The Spirit of the Artist

First off, it looks like I was mistaken about Imari!
She IS a chuuni! Which is great. I thought she was just referencing an anime in the last episode, and that was it – but I guess she is a chuuni in the end.

I was also wrong about Imari joining the art club, so far at least. I think it’ll still happen, but I wonder when. It seems a little odd that last episode she was inseparable from Subaru, and yet in this episode she was just on her own the entire time. I guess they didn’t want to rush Imari into the club too soon. It also looks like Subaru might not be the reason she ends up joining the club, but maybe her new pupil! Very interesting.

Anyways, this post is about the spirit of the artist.

This Art Club Has A Problem! Episode 6 – Sealed Powers

Hmm, so it seems I was a little off in my predictions for this episode.
Regardless, we did witness some sealed powers. My expert eye can spot them from a mile away. Let’s pray that the seals never remain unbroken, although I did witness some seals that show signs of wear.

I was also worried that the new character would take the top spot but luckily, Collette is still the best girl in Konobi. At this point I think her position is guaranteed for the rest of the anime.

Turns out the new girl wasn’t a chuuni, and just an otaku referencing an anime, thus appearing like a chuuni in the preview. That’s too bad, but I guess you can’t win them all. We do already have Collette as is, so adding a chuuni would be asking for too much.

Of course, the new girl, Imari, is also very cute. Which makes it difficult on me as I just can’t help but take screencaps of Usami and Collette as it is. It’s hard to show restraint in this area, but I’ll have to try or else I’ll never finish an episode.

Tonight we dive into the sealed powers hidden amongst the students at a certain Japanese high school. Readers beware, this post is not for the lighthearted.
