The CLIMAX season gets underway with the fourth and final season of this series and I’m glad once again for something simple and cute. The opening episode is simple fun inKiyoko doing some laundry on the roof only to run into Yumi up there practicing for a part in a show. It’s all magical girl-ish stuff that has them speaking the parts and just enjoying the rush of an experience like that, at least until Ayame shows up and gets into the mix with it. It basically becomes a kind of improv session from there and it’s lighthearted silliness. It just expands from there with a few others showing up into a kind of free-for-all rumble in all the right ways.
This series is one that’s very low on the expectations side of things for me simply because I’m not expecting much. What I want is a show that spends a few minutes with a wide group of characters just being silly, adorable, sometimes a little serious, as they go about the wide range of jobs that they engage in for the company. This one starts it off right in showing how many visit the roof over time and how they all like to get involved with everything.
