The latest series of apprehensively awaited baka-yarou anime Minami-ke, Minami-ke Okaeri, has arrived, and episode one is already attracting harsh censure for its sloppy production values, with an especially major error being rapidly detected by the critical engine that is 2ch.
You can see the glaring error which has so outraged fans below:
As you can see, what is written on the document is 寝むそう / nemu sou, incorrectly meaning something along the lines of “apparently sleeps”, instead of the correct 眠そう / nemusou, meaning “looks sleepy”.
A truly shocking example of poor production values. There are some suggestions that this might be a joke based on the teacher, but which seems more likely, a joke, or Asread quality?
Just how so blatant an error found its way through QC is surely a sad indictment of the Asread production process. Perhaps it was they who were sleepy? Was the effort of drawing faces on the background characters too much for them? Is this to be Okawari all over again?
Leaving aside this colossal disaster on the part of Asread, fans are mostly rather positive, going so far as to guardedly revise their previously vitriolic disparagement of the studio.
Praise for the humour and upbeat atmosphere of the show is not lacking, so it seems Okawari may have been the unfortunate nadir of the series after all.
Most do retain some reservations about the character design and animation quality however. certainly, some slightly strange frames are in evidence.

Hopefully, it has not been marred completely by the “sleepy” debacle.
