Errors (and inconsistencies) in Anime 2

Hello everyone, DarkdaemonPK2 here. May is the second month were most of the schools in the Philippines are still close due to summer vacation. Summer vacation is a time of joy and merry making since you get to do anything under the sun without worrying about anything in the world. And what better way to celebrate May by making another post about more errors and inconsistencies found in anime, right?

Nyaruko: “Noooooooooooo!”

Hey, don’t be like that!
Eherm… Despite Nyaruko’s howls of dismay and feelings of being overwhelmed, we will yet have another round of exposing the screw-ups found in anime since it’s important to have fun and learn new things while on vacation. Muhahahahaha! Roll VTR please!

1. Glue that Really Sticks

Too bad!

In episode 5 of Majikoi, we found our main protagonist in excruciating pain after he found out that his prized girls in bloomers photo collection was severely defiled after Miyako glued her images on the faces of the cover beauties.

vlcsnap-2017-04-08-10h24m30s756Because of this, our main guy’s retribution resulted in Miyako’s hand being glued to Cookie’s head (her trusty robot friend).

vlcsnap-2017-04-08-10h25m26s189We see them on the next scene on the way to school while her hand is still being glued to Cookie’s head. What makes me wonder in disbelief is that how is it possible she was able to wear her uniform while her hand is still stuck? There’s actually no way to do that unless they will meticulously cut and sew some parts of the uniform in order for her to get dressed properly. However, I find that really painstaking and stupid as well in which they could have at least just found the means to remove the glue so that she can move freely. But, hey! This is anime we are talking about! Maybe they did that just for comedic effects. I can accept that but it’s still an error in my eyes.

See? She even agrees with me.

2. Communication Concussion

EP195.pngEpisode 195 of the Pokemon anime features the character of the day Simon, who claims he has the ability to talk to Pokemon.

ep195aAll of a sudden, Officer Jenny appears out of the blue and accuses poor Simon of being a fake Pokemon interpreter in order to swindle money from his victims. They got into an argument but the things that this lovely officer in short skirt said that “Pokemon cannot understand human speech or speak it either” made me cringe for a bit.

How about this guy?

Before the addition of Slowking in Generation 2, we all know that Team Rocket’s Meowth was able to talk and walk like a human with nothing but sheer determination and will power. You gotta admire the little guy for that. And even though most Pokemon cannot talk like a human, all of them can understand human speech as evident on how they can follow their trainer’s commands during a Pokemon battle. Yup, we have an error in our presence all right.

3. Tricky Trousers

vlcsnap-2017-05-13-05h29m23s442.pngIn episode 6 of Chō Mashin Eiyūden Wataru titled “Grand Prix in Flying Village,” Wataru and his party were amazed about how all the houses in the area had wheels which resulted in all sorts of zany effects, much to the annoyance and grief of the residents that were affected.

vlcsnap-2017-05-13-04h17m06s728.pngWe are introduced to Nabi, who is the character of the day as she invites Wataru and his friends to her underground garage.

vlcsnap-2017-05-13-04h17m21s553.pngIf you will observe closely she is wearing pants while going down the steps. However…

vlcsnap-2017-05-13-04h17m46s651.png…on the next scene she is seen not wearing pants while serving a drink to Wataru. Either that or she just feels more comfortable without her pants while being indoors.

vlcsnap-2017-05-13-04h18m30s252.pngBut on the next scene while they were all seated, we see Nabi wearing her pants again. All right, very suspicious…

vlcsnap-2017-05-13-05h39m33s776.pngI guess we now know why Wataru was smiling in this scene for he secretly thanked the people in charge of the animation for not forgetting to put Nabi’s trousers back in place. Yup, an error alright.

4. Switcheroo Socks #2

vlcsnap-2017-05-13-06h12m08s397.pngI’m a fan of girls wearing thigh high socks (I guess it’s my fetish) and very critical when it comes to it. Episode 3 of Kobayshi-san’s Dragon Maid introduced us some of Tohru’s friends like the well endowed and busty Lucoa who wears thigh high socks.

vlcsnap-2017-05-13-06h11m50s075.pngThe way she was introduced to the audience was that the camera panned her from bottom to top giving us a clear view on what she is wearing in a whole. The opening theme of the anime shows that she is wearing thigh high socks but it is clearly shown here she is not.

vlcsnap-2017-05-13-06h20m23s079.pngHer thigh high socks are still not shown as evident on this scene while Kobyashi was looking at Lucoa’s body while complaining why dragons are so “big” in size. Well, dragons are portrayed as “big” in myths and legends, right?

vlcsnap-2017-05-13-06h22m50s992.pngStill no sign of Lucoa wearing her thigh high socks. If this will keep on, I’ll just go home now…

vlcsnap-2017-05-13-06h23m00s407.pngAnd on the last scene, we finally see her wearing her thigh high socks. Oh, Kyoto Animation, what is your Quality Control doing? It’s already 2017 and you managed to land an error on this one?

5. Swapping Sizes

vlcsnap-2017-05-13-07h44m30s663.pngvlcsnap-2017-05-13-07h36m14s587.pngOn episode 3 of Tayutama: Kiss on my Deity, there is a scene where Mashiro (the one with fox ears and tail) and her group were cornered by the student body preventing them from escaping the school. It’s noticeable that her size is of a high school student but a bit shorter compared to the male protagonist.

vlcsnap-2017-05-13-07h37m52s654.png
You’re not alone

Mashiro, being fed up, finally resorted to use her powers to scare the hindrances a little to teach them a lesson.

vlcsnap-2017-05-13-06h05m36s806.pngShe chants a spell in which her hair turns white whenever she uses her powers. The next scene made me laugh a bit because…

vlcsnap-2017-05-13-06h05m54s693
She just became a loli!

When she leaped or flew in the air, her body just shrunk to a size of a child. I don’t what happened here but the next scene made me confirm she did reverted to being a kid…

vlcsnap-2017-05-13-06h07m15s583…because her size is still the same as of a kid’s on this scene that followed. If her body did changed back to child’s body, how come the uniform she is wearing did not become too big for her to wear? Did the uniform also conveniently shrank to fit her current body size?

vlcsnap-2017-05-13-06h10m01s215The following scene shows her being back on her original size. Perhaps there was some errors made by the animation team on that particular scene but it really should not be an issue when it comes to things like that, except if the animation department was cross cutting on the expenses or had to rush this episode due to time constraints, or a combination of both. Either way, that’s and error and inconsistency for you.

  1. I honestly cannot catch errors like this, since I’m always focused on the story or some sh*t. Some anime is known for cutting corners, and you can keep this error thing for a long time lol. Great job.

    1. Glad you liked it but I must say it’s getting challenging on spotting errors and I don’t have all day on doing it. But what drives me on doing this is because it’s fun ya know? Hehe…

      1. Well, don’t worry because you’ll be seing more errors and sh*t in the coming months. And ya sure swear a lot ya know? Saying sh*t most of the time, hehe… It reminds me of Mr. Duterte and his colorful language…

      2. Wala ka sa pinas noh? Put tank in a mall. Hahaha. I express better when I don’t hold back, so I do apologize. Me and Du30 calls it as it is, is all.

  2. That Lucoa one killed me! I just watched it recently so i cant believe i didnt notice that haha! I have a bit of a soft spot for KyoAni too, easily my favourite animation studio after Bones. Sort it out KyoAni (T▽T)

    Thanks for this, what a fun post!

    1. Thanks for reading and I’m glad you liked it! I’ll be making more in the future so stay tuned. I also like Kyoto Animation for their excellent animation although not a fan for most of the things they adapt into anime.
