Hinamatsuri #03 — Social Commentary

April 20th, 2018


Boy, talk about rose tinted glasses.


I really don't get what they were going for with the first segment. It's such a weird, sappy, romanticized bit about how noble, selfless, and hardworking the homeless are. It's too mawkish to be taken seriously, but there's not a joke anywhere to be found in it either. Perhaps that's preferable, because then the second segment certainly was trying to be funny, and that was just painful. Literally, physically painful since it kept screaming at the sound usually reserved for training dogs. It certainly didn't help that it tried to turn "a middle schooler can't be a bartender" into like ten goddamned minutes of joke. Not jokes. Joke. That theme would more or less continue to the final segment. Hina tries to clean the apartment but makes a mess instead. In like… two different ways. The end. So… that was sure an obligatory appearance by the titular character.

    Judging by the manga, absolutely nothing.
