Twang #01 — Tell Me More About The Six Fingered Girl

October 21st, 2018


Yes, that girl has six fingers. No, she's not supposed to.

And yes, it's really obtrusive since that hand is waving, but they left an… after image of a finger, I guess, as it entered the frame, so she's moving her hand while a sixth finger motionlessly dangles off it.


This is a particularly poor outing for Kyoto Animation. It's probably a bit unfair to hold them to higher animation and artistic styles than other studios, but if you take away those, then what do you have left? Just another melodramatic teenage angstfest, of which there are goddamned legion in recent years. It reminded me of various Clamp things more than anything else, what with all the elongated people running around, towering over their peers. Are we supposed to take them to be seven foot tall teenagers, or is that just a five foot tall teacher? The point is that if you're expecting the same kind of artistic effort as you got for similarly banal KyoAni shows like that mail cyborg thing, you're going to be very disappointed.

Anyhow, dude wants to join archery club, wants another dude who used to be into archery (never shown) but now sucks at it, dude #2 discovers half naked archery dude with a pet owl in a swirl of cherry petals and romantic moonlight. Yeah, it's all more than a bit homoerotic, six fingered girl notwithstanding. More than that, it's boring. It's another main character afflicted by the undirected malaise of existence. They claim in the pre-OP that he's discovered a love of archery, then go straight to malaise to use the same goddamned thing to end the episode. It ends on the same thing it tried to start on, leaving twenty minutes of shuffling around, dragging its feet and being mopey.

  • Litho says:

    Inbreeding is supposed to lead to the offspring having additional limbs, and if anime/manga is any indication, Japan is second only to the Nascar states of the US when it comes to marrying sisters and cousins, so the girl having six fingers is entirely plausible.


  • anise_punter says:

    should have adapted manga time kirara archery instead

    kyoani has really… not been good for years outside of the pretty art


  • LUNI_TUNZ says:

    Between this and Making Kurisu in Steins;Gate 0’s OP, this must be the year of the six fingers girl.

    Oh god, I think we just discovered a new fetish.
