Working!! #24 — Bad Hair Days

December 10th, 2011


I don’t trust that Poplar…


Yawn. Mostly a Satou episode I guess, which is only slightly removed from the exceedingly boring Yachiyo, but that was just the start(ish) and the end. The start was a brief Yamada bit about her losing her bear because Satou put it away in her room. It’s as hilarious as I make it sound. There was also a middle bit about Nazuna hanging out with her other sisters. The jokes there was "In case you forgot what their gimmicks are, here’s a refresher."

The rest though was the usual Yachiyo/Satou boringness. Mitsuki and Poplar at least gave a valiant attempt to bring a little energy to their stuff, but their dogged insinstence on showing both of them grump about while not actually going anywhere was irritating around episode 5, a year ago. If you want them to just be jokes, then tell jokes. If you want to focus on their relationship and pretend like it’s meaningful or we should care, then bloody do something with it. Yes, you are Japanese, and I know that the concept of characters having relationships terrifies the living hell out of you. I don’t care. Man up and have them snog already.

    You know you’ve done a bad job when Aroduc doesn’t mention Inami once. Bad, A-1. Now go sit in a corner and think about what you can do best. Hint: it starts and ends with i.

    This was somewhat frustrating episode to watch.
    I once heard that when you smile for some time without a reason, your level of dopamine and serotonine will grow anyway. I had nothing to lose, so there I was, grinning like an idiot to my laptop, waiting for something funny to actually happen, living off good memories from this show and trying not to punch the poor lcd. I guess the story about smiling is just a hoax.

    THANK YOU. OMG. This is what bothers me sooooooo much about these Satou/Yachiyo bits. It’s like they want you to give a damn about the relationships, but every time they make it seem like it’s going somewhere, they bring it right back to square one and act like whatever happened never took place.

    satou should just do kyouko. He’ll get a lot of frustration off his chest whilst getting his main obstacle out of the way thoufgh I’m concerned she’ll eat him…….it….something!
