Silver Fox #01 — Domesticated Dogs!

October 6th, 2013


Holy crap!


I think we’ve well-established that I dislike it when shows try to touch me. Aside from the more visceral appeals to sex and violence, emotional appeals should be a gentle caress, not ham handed fumbling about. That just embarrasses you and annoys me. Which brings us to the latest Japanese attempt to awkwardly manhandle my emotional junk. See? After she told us all about everything in one big expositional internal diarrhetic info dump, he was a jerk and she threw a temper tantrum, but then they made up. Feeeeeeeeeeelings. This is also apparently the first time this has ever happened in centuries, because not only cars, but domesticated dogs are a strange new thing to giant invisible magical foxes. That’s about as close as it comes to any kind of levity too.

Production’s bland across the board, although perhaps the soundtrack could be nominated for some kind of award for Music Probably Stolen From Disney Shots of Meadows. About the only time it showed even a trace of subtlety was the flashback toward the end, but even that a music box tinkling for maximum cliche and minimum effort. So humorless, poorly technically made, unambitious melodrama. Bloody well fantastic.

Next Episode:


Probably the evils of peer pressure.

    When the shows try to touch you? That sounds like a poltergeist problem there, mate.

    Remember, kids, always tell your parents when an anime tries to touch you.
