[New][OVA] Carnival Phantasm

It seems that Type-Moon didn't want 07th-Expansion get all the glories for making cheap ass sequels of once great franchises, because they too came up with some ideas on how to use their established franchise, more specifically, Shingetsutan Tsukihime and Fate/Stay Night to get some quick cash out of loyal fans. That's where Carnival Phantasm stood.

These little offshoots are sometimes fun to watch, but in reality they're mostly just dumb laughingstocks made of familiar faces. While great franchises are created to make profits, trying to squeeze the last bit out of them is almost a sure sign that the author's creative talent is running dry. So for the most part, I'm ready to kick Type-Moon off the list that I'm anticipating great new series from.

To me, the series actually felt like Lucky Star, with the exception of using well-know characters instead creating original characters. Other than that, there isn't really much about this series worth mentioning.

Score: 74

*Edit 8/23/11:* If you're so inclined to disagree with me that you bother to check the "what are you smoking" box below (which as of right now, two people already did), would you at least comment and tell me why you think this series is better than I think it is and not just some fart jokes told with familiar faces? Really, I do want to know, maybe you're seeing something I'm not.

I have to admit i laughed a bit, but it is still sad to see good characters to be used in such way. i will probably watch it and ignore it after, for the sake of both series.
