Hi guys, long time I haven’t update anything here. Even though I had been to at least 3 Cons this month. Laziness and College assignment had been keeping me from updating. Anywho, I’m giving my thoughts and rant for the recently ended ‘otome’ series, Prince of Stride Alternative. I was really hyped that in Winter 2016, there was an otome game based anime, at the first few episodes approximately, Ep 1 – 4 the story line was great; Otome based. But, the episodes after that…. It went down the drain. ﾌﾙ(･_･ 三･_･)ﾌﾙ ﾌﾙ(･_･ 三･_･)ﾌﾙ I wonder what went wrong….
The story plot was nice, typical sports anime themed. The main male lead, Yagami Riku was the typical male shounen protagonist. Hot blooded, almost at the verge to give up but didn’t. Wait… WHAT?! WHAT DOES THIS HAS TO DO WITH OTOME?! ﾌﾞﾝ(￣ﾛ￣=￣ﾛ￣)ﾌﾞﾝ Shouldn’t the main be the leading lady?! WHAT ARE YOU FUCKING WITH ME HERE DENGEKI GIRLS SIDE?! ヽ(#`Д´)ﾉ┌┛〃∩AhｰAhｰAhｰ Honestly, the leading lady ~ Nana is WORST THAN Heroine-chan and Enma combined. I mean like WTF, she is so useless. The guys practically out shined her, what kind of otome game based anime is this?? (# ﾟДﾟ)つ〃∩ ｺﾞﾙｧ ｺﾞﾙｧ ｺﾞﾙｧ I’m never this disappointed ever, mind UtaPri Season 3. The casting for the male characters were good, except the story was shitty.

The only thing I enjoyed the most from this series is the music. Both the OP & ED. At least, the production company had brains. ρ(-ω-、)ヾ(゜ω゜；)ヨチヨチ The Opening was ‘Strider’s High‘ by OxT , while the Ending is ‘Be My Steady‘ by Galaxy Standard, the fictional Idol group in the series.
I rather play the game than watch the series for the 2nd time, no worth my time. Welcome to the Otome black list PoS.
