C3 is an comedic anime with some good looking art and some ecchi. The plot is pretty interesting when you get into it, and it’s a pretty funny anime series if you’re looking for a good laugh in small doses, but don’t let it’s charm fool you this series knows how to go dark.

THE GOOD: C3: CubexCursedxCuriosity is a pretty looking anime series, the plot involves a cursed tool with a humanoid form named Fear. Fear has several forms of torture that she can use, which makes her dangerous, though from the opening moments of the anime you’d never expect this going in as a blind viewer. You can knock it out within a single afternoon due to the twelve episode count, but if you want something quick to marathon C3 isn’t exactly a bad choice. Despite the ecchi, the comedy is pretty funny, and the characters are likable and fun.

C3 may be an ecchi comedy, but that doesn't mean it can't be dark.

THE BAD: The ecchi can be annoying, but other times it can be funny, so it depends on how you personally feel about the genre when viewing.

C3 is a pretty decent watch that does anime tropes well.

OVERALL THOUGHTS: C3: CubexCursedxCuriosity is a fine anime series with some good comedy, great art, and some likable characters. There’s ecchi and it’s 50/50 on the ecchi being funny, but overall if you want some time to kill and want to avoid your anime genre of choice C3 could be the series to help out. Otaku Dome gives c3 an 77 out of 100.
