Oh hey, apparently this airs at 10:30am in moonland. Nothing says breakfast like milkjugs thrown in your face. I guess it’s a few minutes longer than normal too.
So, yeah… the first minute or two proper of this show had more breast bounce noises than it did conversation… and at least the first two minutes were spent with the hapless generic male lead smothered in the generic bubbly female lead’s chest. That said, aside from Balloon-chan the fanservice wasn’t really that excessive. She more than made up for it though by flaunting her inflatables every time she was on screen. I’m also kind of surprised by the number of times the camera was placed at knee height and pointed upward, but there wasn’t actually a panty shot until about 11 minutes in.
Unfortunately, the characters really aren’t particularly interesting to me. The protagonist is the same spineless twerp we’ve seen a billion times over. He couldn’t even buy a sandwich for himself. It was made all the creepier by Balloon-chan throwing herself at him with a sloppy kiss that sent saliva spilling all over his mouth. This was followed soon after by what I think is referred to in director circles as "the blowjob camera angle." From here, she mounted Kouta and tried to take his virginity. Being a Japanese male, this was so emotionally scarring to him that he was literally in tears until someone walked in on them. It’s okay, Kouta, she probably has fleas anyway.
Or the clap.
Where to start… where to start… My hatred of Kouta already burns with the wrath of a thousand suns, but Balloon-chan isn’t really any worse than any other bubbly fanservicey character out there. Well… she is a bit more of a loose hussy than most. Still, I’ve learned to ignore crappy Mamiko Noto voiced male characters in the past… it helps when they’re relegated to the role of "background piece of meat" like Girls Bravo did. The show also went from moderate fanservice to really really trashy at around the 16 minute mark when the saliva drenched kissing, mounting and undressing began. Again, I remind you that to Kouta, this was a mentally scarring experience. What was a mentally scarring experience was Kouta turning into a female voiced foxboy trap. It’s even worse because Kouta is voiced by a woman (Noto) to begin with.
It wasn’t too bad… in that I had a grand old time talking with Totali as we watched it and mocking things/pointing out the blowjob camera angle/letting him know about Kouta turning into a foxboy trap. I mean, hell… I’ve already written this much so far. If the rest of the characters are more interesting and likeable than "GIRLS HAVE COOTIES, EW" Kouta, maybe. As far as the first episode goes though, there wasn’t really too much that impressed me and until the saliva soaked kissing started, too much that turned me off to it. The show really did get raunchy fast though… so… I’m not really sure. It ended up leaving a pretty bad taste in my mouth. I try to remember the wind scything and the fireballs, but they kind of pale in comparison to the mounting and rubbing. Totali’s already said he’s all over this like saliva on Balloon-chan’s lips, and he can probably have it. There’s still quite a few very good shows left for Saturdays (don’t count on me covering this this late on Fridays usually), so it’s still got some stiff competition ahead. It wouldn’t kill me to watch this… but if they keep having more of the lewd scenes that came up there… I wouldn’t exactly feel like a particularly wholesome person either. *shrug*.
Oh yeah, and the preview for the next episode was all about licking. DON’T LICK THERE, KOUTA!
