Hisone & Masotan #03 — Sexual Harassment Training Day

April 26th, 2018


I think you need to go through the materials again, Bones.


I spent most of this episode wondering where the hell it was going. The answer, unsurprisingly, was nowhere. They sort of talked up Hisone's predecessor, and then, shockingly, the older woman appearing in the OP, ED, and conspicuously about 30 seconds in the middle of the episode ended up being her, so Hisone threw a tantrum about how she was doing her very bestest and then this woman comes in, doing literally nothing but remark on how great things are, and that's just not cool. Whereupon Hisone is eaten and dragged, kicking and screaming, into taking off. The end. It's not like this woman was horning in, trying to change things. Nor did anybody learn any kind of Valuable Lesson™. She exists to provide a flimsy excuse for Hisone to declare that she's trying really really hard, after spending an entire episode (three, really) doing her damnedest to get up the gumption to do the minimum possible. But I guess it's hard to have a plot when you keep having all the characters point out how they're totally not sexually harassing anybody while sexually harassing the hell out of them. …And playing with toy jets.

It's been three episodes, and I still have no idea what we're even supposed to be attached to with this show, which I guess means that barring a truly dreadful episode, the other dragon thing is all I'm going to stick with for Thursdays. Hisone is the most developed character here, and her interaction with literally everything from other people to bath towels can be described as "stares at it in wide eyed shock." If it's the last three minutes of the episode, you can also include "spouts some flimsy platitude about believing in yourself," and even that's only two out of three episodes. The first one had her simply stare in wonder at the wonderment of… having done her best. And, of course, like always, remember that "best" here means something more like "bare minimum," or "try anything at all." So it ain't exactly the triumph of teenage will and gumption that it maybe seems to think it is… and even that requires some major funhouse mirror distortion of perception.

    I wonder where the point is to give an dragon these Air Plane Toys in the first place and how they glue it on him/her

    what they really want is an hybrid of an Harrier hovering power mixed with the speed of an Mig and the maximum stealth like an one wing plane..
