Time to start crying again.
And this would be the exact opposite direction that I wanted the show to go in. It’s also the direction that I originally expected it to go in but let’s set that aside. This was The Banal Lives of High School Girlstm while the Otherworld segments were reduced to maybe about two minutes, almost all of which were characters staring wistfully with the bizarre ending that when Peppy McNewCharacter was killed in the Otherworld, she collapsed at school. If there was even anything worth ripping, I would have just done that instead, but sadly, no. The entire first half of this episode doesn’t really need to exist for that matter and just served to introduce Peppy McNewCharacter, who everybody teamed up on to make fun of because the writing dictated that and then got further angsted up by a character who spent 95% of her screentime crying or longingly touching pictures. Take it down a peg before you’re cutting yourself to Linkin Park, BRS.
Or better yet, do start cutting yourself. Go all the way with this crazy. Stop pussyfooting around like it’s all a bad joke about menstruation and knife someone. Maybe yourself. Maybe someone else. It’s all good.
