Rinne no Lagrange starts strong but peters out – the first few episodes are rich in comedy, impressively animated action, and some clever interactions between the characters (the smarter-than-she-looks Muginami needling Lan). Unfortunately the first series goes nowhere and then ends in a very awkward, incomplete manner. The second series faffs around and never comes together properly, as an action anime, a comedy anime, or a slice-of-life anime.
It’s a nice change having a completely donkan protagonist who is simply incapable of going emo (the scene where the Foundation boss “stresses” her is very funny). I did like the strong sense of setting – the terrestrial locations are taken from real sites in Kamogawa (practically every episode has Kamogawa in the title), and you can even find photos of them online.
