Happy Sugar Receive #02.5 — Idiots Among Us

July 20th, 2018

 

Maybe Japan just has a stupidity epidemic.

Quasi-Impressions:

You know what? Let's just do this again for these two. As I mentioned last post, HaruKana continues to be relatively good natured dumbness. It's fluff, and it knows it. If it actually figured out a way to make the dramatic side of it not blow ten thousand chunks, it might actually be decent. Too bad for that though, as it seems unable to escape from the thing every week being "Kanata gets in her own head for an excessively stupid reason, and resolves it for even less." This week, she spontaneously decided that the only way she would play is to spike. Dinking (yes, I know pokeys and dinking are technically different, shut up, volleyball pedants) is for lesser people. Oh wait, Kanata did it. I guess it's okay for me to do it too after all.

Meanwhile, over in Happy Sugarville, the melodrama porn continues with another rapist adult gleefully giving a speech out of nowhere about how much he loves preying upon his students. "Here I go raping again! Hot diggity damn, I love being a rapist!" he merrily cackles in the middle of the street. But Pinky threatened him back, so now she's the alpha! Elsewhere, the kid putting up posters for Shio accidentally bumps into some random guy in the street, but oops! He's a sadistic mugger torturer who immediately beats him to a pulp, giving Pinky the perfect chance to finish him. It's impossible to take seriously. Every single one of them is like a silly joke that the writers don't quite seem in on.

    “kanata, your feelings are objectively dumb and beach volleyball is good, embrace the peer pressure” is definitely a lesson you would mostly get from japanese animation, for better or worse

    in this case, at least, kanata’s feelings are dumb and she should feel bad, it’s not like she killed a guy she just had a bunch of bad games

    also yes i am all about the relentlessly hyperactive dim bulb blonde girl that everybody in-universe thinks is a nuisance yes yes yes give me more of this character

    How could you forget the guy Pinky met last week, who now loves little girls because they make him feel so good?

    This series couldn’t have possibly been written by a real human, less a human who actually understands human emotion, despite Pinky’s constant claims of love.

    That said, her character design reminds me of Hinamuri Amu from Shugo Chara, a much less insufferable show.

    Also, why on Earth would the guy who hates older women so much he wants to throw up, go looking for one at the end, allowing Pinky to find the Cafe’s Convenient Cupboard Crowbar.

    This feels like a collection of random scenes they just wrote and mashed together with no regard for continuity.
