The Sgt. Frog anime (cartoon) was first announced as coming to the U.S. in November 2006. Now, two years later, FUNimation Entertainment (the new licensor) and Tokyopop (publisher of the manga) have released a test episode that they want opinions on.
The phrasing I found odd: “before they proceed further, they want to offer fans the opportunity to share their opinions.” Is that a way to encourage only positive comments, for fear of quashing the project? Doesn’t seem to be working, if so.
As for my opinion: It all seemed a little frantic to me, and the smart-alec narrator wasn’t a plus. It takes way too long for the humans to show up, and there’s not nearly enough interaction with them. But suddenly, the red frog tough guy is my favorite!Similar Posts: Sgt. Frog Book 18 § Win Sgt.
