Girlfriend (Beta) #01 — Made By the Deaf and Blind For the Deaf and Blind

October 12th, 2014


Talk. Through. Your. Mouths.

I did turn on Kokkuri-san for about 15 minutes and it got me to raise my eyebrow a couple times, but I still hadn’t chuckled yet, so I’ve given up on it. Cross Ange remains the dominant comedy of the weekend by a long shot.


I am baffled as to how this exists. Not why it exists. It’s from some awful cell phone game that apparently needs a very long advertisement. How they managed to put together an entire staff of deaf people and yet somehow couldn’t find a writer is something akin to a miracle. Holy hell. The foreign girl’s sing song accent is like twisting a knife in my ears. And she’s merely the worst. I usually don’t have much to say about voices but this was painful across the board. I’m guessing it’s probably one part that the entire episode seems to have been thrown together over a weekend, and one part that everyone is trying to sound as breathy as goddamned possible so they’re all half talking through their noses while the BGM blares obnoxiously over their nasally whispering.

And if my remark about not finding a writer wasn’t a clue, they seem to have only got as far as “has girls” and then called it a day for the premise. While there’s a main character (maybe two), she just spends the entire day going about her business on a tour of all the other girls, because I haven’t seen that enough times this season yet. They could all be blushing at each other, but their faces seem to be permanently flushed so I’m hoping that they’re all in quarantine and about to die from dengue fever. I’d call it a PA Works show made by not-PA Works, but the art and animation is far too poor for that. This thing is just… inexplicable.

Next Episode:

Disappear from this world, monster.
