Couldn’t Be a Hero So Etc Etc #01 — Body Stocking Censorship

October 4th, 2013


Wow. I don’t think I’ve seen that since Macademy’s purple bodysuits.


Well, that’s certainly some of the most impressive couple minutes of this season so far. Of course, it did have the pall hanging over it that I knew it was all a lie and we’d be pitching everything back to mundanity eventually. And return it did. Like a tank running over a pug. I’ll miss that pug. I’ll say this though, the Kanokon writer/porn director staff shows. Nary a chance is missed for a panty shot or bouncing breast and every female has a permanent shiny sexual flush that can only come from the air apparently being flooded with those magical Japanese aphrodisiacs and being permanently coated in a thick layer of baby oil.

It’s not nearly as witty as it thinks though, nor are the characters particularly funny. I almost feel like Magical Girlfriend getting mad or exploding something would have been preferable to just not caring once "he’s not trying to rape me" was established. At the very least, it would have given Light Novel Protagonist something to actually complain about. "Ugh. I have to see breasts openly exposed to me again. And I’m going to have to help the naked buxom girl clean herself? What a pain." If he really felt that way, the least he could’ve done is try to pop them with his excessively pointy chin.

I don’t know. Maybe it’s the boring other two episodes I watched today, but it seems relatively harmless. It’s not particularly funny or particularly anything really past the opening, but it didn’t bore or annoy me or bore me as much as things like Golden Time or Outbreak Company did. Far from ringing endorsement to be sure, but it’s at least a somewhat more palatable form of schlock that could be okay at times if they handle Phino well. Still, you know… schlock, but better anything than boring. Anybody filthy enough to be bathing themselves using dish soap in a sink by rights should be far more amusing than was shown here. I’ve already practically given up on Blandy McHatesBoobs though.

7 Shouts From the Peanut Gallery

  • Flood says:

    I’m actually really looking forward to this show. I hope it doesn’t become some sappy “slice of life” gig. I like the premise.

    Typical crap fanservice, though. Really wish Japan would grow up and get over boobs.

  • Longhaul says:

    Will be interesting to see if they keep up the amount of ‘motion’ as the series goes on.

  • slicendice says:

    Why are the title getting longer and longer?

    • Eric says:

      I think it’s because most light novel authors are really shitty writers, so they think that if they put the whole story in the title, they can make the rest of the book terrible harem/romance antics.

  • Fate says:

    Those breasts defy the laws of physics in a very creepy way. We may get to see more of scenes like the first 5 minutes in this show. I will hold out hope for it later in the season.

  • The Phantom says:

    Sooo you picked the show where the girl appears naked the most, and with several close ups to the breast area, we already knew you will! Anyway I don’t like this next!
