Anime Review:
Yumeiro Patisserie Mune-Kyun Tropical Island Special

What this is about: I made the promise that I would review every new subtitled anime show (excluding blatant yaoi and/or porn) released during the Spring, Summer and Fall 2010 seasons, so now I am going back to review a handful of shows that I missed over the past few months for one reason or another. This time around, it’s Yumeiro Patisserie Mune-Kyun Tropical Island, a seven-minute original video animation short from July 1, 2010, based on the popular anime series.

tl;dr review: Stuck on tropical island, catch big fish, eat big fish, spirits grow gigantic.

Episode Summary: Based on the popular manga and anime series about a young girl who desires to become a pastry chef, this is just a short video special that has nothing to do with the story itself. Four of the main characters are trapped on a deserted island, run around trying to find food, get chased by a giant boulder, capture a giant fish, cook and eat the fish, and then the Sweets Spirits that go along with the characters grow gigantic. The end.

My Thoughts: It’s all pretty silly and pointless, ultimately starting from nowhere and going nowhere, the sort of thing you might expect as a DVD extra tacked on as a bonus for the fans. And, really, about the only people who would really find any interest in this at all would be hardcore Yumeiro Patisserie fans.

The verdict:

The last of the un-reviewed 2010 shows, I swear!: Kuroshitsuji II Special: Ciel in Wonderland, Beelzebub OVA, Mirai Nikki, Bakugan Gundalian Warriors, Chi’s Sweet Home OVA, Detective Conan Magic File 4, Detective Conan OVA: Kid in Trap Island
