Fall Seriously in Love With Miyako!! #03 — …Suddenly Touhou!

October 15th, 2011

 

That’s certainly new.

Impressions:

I’m starting to wonder if every episode is going to begin with Miyako panting, moaning, and trying to get Yamato into Ms. Terwilliger. This episode even had a twofer, both with the pre-OP segment of her making him play a porn game she made of him having sex with her and then sneaking into his room afterwards and trying to jump him as he was visiting camp Morning Wood. …And then Yamato plays Touhou. Bonus points to you if you can recognize the patterns. I have to admit, turning on Touhou gameplay clips is certainly a new and… uh… interesting way to handle a relatively dull "I have feeeeeeeeeeelings" speech, but it probably also sets a new record for how little the audio and visuals have to do with each other.

The second half was all Yukie in the bath ranting to herself her horse about Yamato. You can almost hear her ovulating anxiously. It wasn’t as bad as it sounds since it wasn’t just an endless parade of her sitting there as a talking head with the same shots over and over again, and her ranting was more amusing than these rambling Japanese monologues usually are, rationalizing flashing her panties at Yamato and all the other things involved in banging winning Yamato. Occasionally getting carried away and going in bizarre directions did help, but it was still mostly the visuals that kept the one woman woman and horse show from actually feeling like just an insecure stream-of-conscious rant. I do think this episode was overall more amusing than last week’s, even without any of the action, but it’s till not up to the levels of the first.

    I do believe this is the first time the protagonist of an eroge adaptation played the eroge that the anime is based on.

    Still, I wish the show had kept all the fun and energy of the first episode instead of turning out generic harem schlock.

  • Hayate-kun says:

    Yeah, it probably is the first. I agree with the energy and fun to be back but I sorta expected the harem bit…

  • Yue says:

    That’s a pretty unexpected setup right then and there.

  • Keith Kurogane says:

    That game looks like Touhou… XD
    Seriously, I’m going to drop this if it turns into an generic harem anime…

    Is the black girl thing an inside joke or am I missing something? I’m guessing she a ru-paul or just victim of japan xenophobia
