My Something Can’t Be This Something Else #06 — Schtick

November 7th, 2010


This show should always be this bad.


Surprisingly not a bad episode. I did get to watch it while chatting with Kuro though, and the social experience can make things a lot better. I still wouldn’t call it good exactly, but it was entertaining at least and barely inspired any bile this week. That already puts it ahead of almost all the other episodes. Kirino was bumped out this week except for a few shots of her hugging a hug pillow and adjusting her panties after taking a dump. Thanks, AIC. We needed to see that. Maybe next week you can show Kirino throwing away a tampon.

Instead, we got Manami, who is still boring as sin. Her grandparents however, spent the entire episode doing bad schtick, lurking under tables, and trying to get Kyousuke to bang her. While watching weird Japanese standup is not quite as amusing as one would imagine, it was humorous when Kyousuke somehow developed a sense of humor for about 90 seconds and ran with one of the jokes instead of giving himself an aneurysm. It was also a thankful change of pace. Finally all the overacting was done on purpose and a gag instead of godawful hackneyed attempts at drama. The start and end were still boring, lame, and went absolutely nowhere… slowly, but at least we weren’t treated to any long drifting shots of people’s e-mail accounts this week. Maybe the show’s finally on the upswing.

    My anime blogger can’t be this tsundere.

    Am I doing this right?

  • alex says:

    no yandere = no fun :(
    I want Ayase dammit, she’s the only character who knows how epic bad this show is and wants to make it more interesting :) *cough* nice boat *cough*

  • Lero says:

    Manami is by so far the only character who isn’t insane as the other from the cast…. Ayase…. Kirino… <_<

  • Hinano says:

    hands down best episode of the whole season.
    kirino can go die in a fire.

  • Shiho says:

    NG episode, without imouto.
    It looks like a jdrama.

  • Anonymous says:

    completely boring and skippable episode

  • The Phantom says:

    100% agree with the Yandere idea, no matter how good (or bad) an anime is, it will always be much better with a crazy loli beheading ppl.

  • kobester says:

    What? No rage about the animation quality?
    What’s with the kirino cutaway scenes?

    • marvelous stan says:

      Gotta throw a bone to the people who are only watching for the one character they desperately wish they could bang.

  • Celestial says:

    It’s pretty crazy how his little sister can be that cute.

  • alex says:

    The only episode where Kirino was win and fun and for the first time actually cute – the dakimakura, how she kicked into Kyousuke’s door and “baka”.
    That pussy Kyousuke should just stay away from Kirino and maybe the show would become something like good :)
    – didn’t Ayase promised she’ll protect Kirino from Kyousuke…she should do her yandere job right and make the show good.

  • Benigmatica says:

    I wonder if Manami is a second-hand childhood friend, according to Aria Shichijou?

    PS: Satomi Satou voiced both characters.

    Anyway, so sad that Kirino is alone with her Meruru dakimakura!

  • Dr_Tenma says:

    I guess the SO RONERY scenes with Kirino were supposed to make here seem extra cute. “DAWWWWW she misses Kyousuke when he’s gone just 1 day.”

    It had the opposite effect on me. I thought it made her look even more like an insufferable attention whore, which I think has been established.

  • Nanaya says:

    From the look of it, everyone but Kyousuke is trying to get him laid in this ep.
