Fun (imo)

Fairly enjoyable-my only question; how can you possibly fulfill/use all the character designs when you can only make less than half a page of original characters?

Me like every kairosoft game

I don’t know why but I just seem to be attracted to every game these developers make. Obviously this isn’t the best they’ve done, but well you know, it’s still not bad!

Pretty good

This installment is pretty good! It reminds me a lot of game dev story, as I’m sure a lot of you who have already bought the game can agree. Sometimes when I try a new kariosoft game, I end up getting bored or don’t like the mechanics. (This rarely happens but when it does it’s frustrating) I can say anime studio has had me hooked for hours now! It isn’t the same way I was hooked to game dev story, sushi spinnery, or pocket stables, but I’m having a lot of fun!

My only complaint is that the background music is my least favorite out of all the games I’ve played from kariosoft. It’s really annoying and does not fit at all. After a while I got engrossed by the game and I didn’t feel too bothered by it anymore, but if you wanna mute it, at least the game gives you the option to turn of BGM and leave SFX on. But seriously, Usually kariosoft BGM is relaxing and I find myself humming it for hours. This isn’t the case with this song. Also, the song unlooped is probably about 45 seconds, so the same ugly bridge comes very often. With other games it felt like the actual song was longer, so when it would loop it wouldn’t feel repetitive.

Also this isn’t exactly relevant to the game itself, but I thought the title screen shown in the photos was the final office for a second. I’m not necessarily let down that it isn’t, but I think the fans would be very happy if an office that big would ever come to one of your games! Sometimes after the years go on and you’ve reached your goals, you want some more to do and manage. But anyways, that’s just a personal thought.

I’ve played countless kariosoft games and have loved the company for years. I’ve had a lot of fun so far with this game, I personally can’t compare it to some other kario games I love much more, but I still think it’s worth the time, 100%! Thank you for bringing us another game and I’m excited to see what you will release in the future. :)
