O Maidens In Your Savage Season #01 — Subtle Train Imagery

July 5th, 2019

 

I have not had anywhere near enough sleep for a Mari Okada show.

Impressions:

I was just bored by the show, or more specifically, the dullard characters, but then the second half really took off when a character declared "I'm about to die," before launching into an explanation of the fundamental concept of time, to say that in the grand scheme of things, we're all essentially already dead. That then gave way to walking in on a dude jerking off, which was the gateway trigger to the realization that the world is full of vaguely sexual things and sent the character running down the street, screaming in abject terror and having a panic attack until a phantom train drove through her crotch tunnel. Your teenager coming of age story for the season, ladies and gentlemen.

I can't help but think back to and want to compare it to shows like B-Cup and Sex-Ed for 30 Year Olds; shows with characters inexperienced with sex and deeply curious about it, that didn't have anybody screaming ridiculously because they never realized that "have it your way" could be used in a sexual manner, not to mention nobody with their head so far up their ass as to deliver faux philosophical carpe diem nonsense like it's some super mature observation in a lecturing monotone. Or the girl who cybersexes while drinking hot chocolate, which seems risky in a lot of ways. Or the girl who screams bloody murder whenever anybody in ear shot so much as says somebody's haircut looks nice. Dramatic cariacatures that annoy, or at best, confuse me, but certainly don't make me want to see them grow and stop being everything that they are, which from what I'm aware of the source LNs, is not something that will be happening any time soon anyway.
