Anime of Tomorrow

C3 Cube x Cursed x Curious Ep. 1

Initial impression – a good formula

Autumn 2011 (12 episodes) (more info)

It seems that every anime season has to have its own moe anime and C3 fills the mold for autumn 2011 (accompanied by another moe anime, Working!! 2).  The first episode is encouraging, with Fear, the tsundere heroine, being voiced by Yukari Tamura—famous for her role as Nanoha in the magic girl series by the same name.  This is bolstered by the fact that she has some experience portraying tsundere characters as Togame in Katanagatari.  But unlike last season’s moe anime Yuru Yuri, C3 is showing signs of a plot rather than a collection of random events.  The characters also seem less rooted to single traits that they just orbit around in perpetuity and actually have depth and relatability.  It does have some ecchi, but that’s offset by some good, physical slapstick humor, the likes of which I’ve not seen in a while.  So we’ve got moe, tsundere, good character development, comedy and a little ecchi.  Sounds like a satisfying combo to me.

    Update
    The slapstick humor of C3 reminds me of the good ol’ Naru-punch from Love Hina that sends Keitaro flying into the sky to be become a star. But in this case it has a more down-to-earth flavor that subtly hints at the character’s secret identities and inner personalities. As these quirks come to light, they are expanding the depth of the plot and make this series simply lovely to watch.
