I’m gonna take a shower and get pissed when I come up with a better intro for the post than this one.
Oushitsu Kyoushi Haine
Short jokes: the anime.
Gay jokes: the anime.
Overplayed tropes: the anime.
tl;dr: This is little more than fujobait trash. But it hasn’t drained my soul yet, so maybe I’ll give it another ep or two.
Really looking forward to how hot the token girl ends up, tbh. If she’s Gou-tier I may have to watch this till the end. (I won’t.)
Can I just rewatch Gad Guard? This show’s an unsettling combination of Rozen Maiden, Dansai Bunri, and those fuckwad nu-nerds who think “steampunk” counts as cosplay.
Sure, this first episode was okay, mostly cuz all the chicks are cunts and that makes for top entertainment. But I am pretty sure Clockwork has no upward mobility. Like, the plot of the next episode is that “the military” is secretly planning to destroy Kyoto because… uhh, they don’t really have a reason — they’re just evil cuz fighting is bad or something.
Hard to imagine why anyone looking at this fast-track to stupid would wanna stick around for the next ep.
This is so funny. I am laughing out loud. Boy Japan, how do you come up with such witty comedy?
Even dullards who think cute girls doing cute things is the epitome of storytelling will probably get tired of the ever-repeated jokes in the show. MC-chan is sometimes mistaken for a scarecrow, blue-hair is hungry and sometimes eats books, yellow wears dresses even though she’s short…
Like, shit, there’s nothing even inherently funny about those things. But every fucking joke comes back to one of them.
If you ever want to smile again, skip this shit and just watch Rokudenashi.
“Kabuki is so cool, I think we should make a high school club for it!” – some retard, probably
Look dude, I think traps are cool too, but I don’t know if I’d start an entire fucking school club for ’em.
Suppose if you were one of those theater kids who thought they were Japanese cuz they watched some dipshits perform taiko poorly once and also had a boredom fetish, this’d be the kinda show for you. People of value are free to move on, though.
Twin Angel BREAK
Maybe it doesn’t make sense to write about the sequel to a show you never watched in the first place. But it sure as goddamn well fills up space on a page. So here we are.
This show has little more to offer than your standard mahou shoujo, except for MC-chan who is straight up based af.
Genki. Can’t read the room. Probably good at thumb wars. Yup, that’s the ideal waifu. (Sorry Eruna, but Mikagura necessitated our breakup.)
God, I just want to have a consensual, committed relationship with her
The other characters may not be much to write to Crymore about, but their interactions with MC-chan are sure as fuck enjoyable.
Plus, I dunno, there’s relevant social commentary or something.
Just fucking watch it. You like things, right? (Don’t answer that — I’m not a licensed therapist.)
Busou Shoujo Machiavellianism
Busou Machiavelli shouldn’t be good. Because, well, it isn’t. This is budget shounen in every sense of the phrase.
But the moment I let facts impact my taste is the moment I lose myself as a man. And I’m not just saying that cuz I’ve been waiting for a show where I can watch a guy beat the shit out of women every episode.
You know, Japan, if you’re not gonna try, I’m not going to either. Dropped after three minutes.
I really thought I wasn’t gonna like Sakura Quest. C’mon, a show about some happy anime girls promoting a rural town cuz :yay:? Easy +1 drop.
Yet the show at least somewhat addresses how nobody wants to live in the country. Hell, I’m from small-town Minnesota and I can tell you it sucks. The only thing to fuck there is your liver.
If we get some brutal honesty about the pros and cons of rural life throughout the series, I might even gain some respect back for the anime industry.
But I anticipate 01 was primarily to set the show up as more than just pretty girls doing pretty things in a small town, and afterward we’re gonna get a correction to little other than what we expect.
Please show me up, Nipponia.
Try 3: Souryo to Majiwaru Shikiyoku no Yoru ni
My quest for tolerable subs continues.
Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata Flat
…You know, maybe I should go back and finish season 1.
