Mikagura School Sour #11 — Oh No! My Emotions!

June 15th, 2015


Japan, you’re being especially trying this season.


Is anybody other than me even watching this? Does anybody care? I know I have a soft spot for shows I feel are simply mediocre but far more maligned than they deserve like the season of Polyphonica where people kept throwing their shoes, but just that the entire episode was focused not on people with super powers actually fighting, which it weirdly remembered it had this week yet tried to show as little as possible, but around one girl sitting in her room feeling sorry for herself while her power contrivedly started ripping holes apart, while the other one stumbles right into a veritable serial killer’s room of explaining absolutely everything. And where is this leading? To Eruna going “I understand now and I care. Hugs!” Gag me with a spoon.

This isn’t even a conflict. This is trying to repaint “feels sorry for herself” into some kind of apocalyptic disaster, her emotional wounds and hurt feelings literally tearing the world apart, and even that didn’t kick in until halfway through the episode. And of course, Mary Sue Jesusette is the only one who can possibly help her because she’s just the most special and perfect around and her only sin is caring too much. Well now she knows all about that time someone was a dick, so she can start caring for real. Summer is going to have to pull out all the stops to have a chance against the tidal wave of insipid “having feelings” that this season was.

4 Shouts From the Peanut Gallery

    Yes, you are the only one watching this show. For that matter, this show doesn’t even exist – you are just imagining it. This season is all a bad dream – you have died and gone to Hell and no one told you. Now you will watch bad anime for eternity and beyond!

    (Hmmm – maybe I should do an L. Ron Hubbard with this concept…)

  • Sanjuro says:

    I doubt anyone is watching it and giving it their full attention. Like Gunslinger and Pleiades it’s something you put on in the background and just wait for it to finish.
    You don’t even need to understand Japanese to work out what’s happening from the voices alone.

    You picked all the wrong shows this season, pal, we had some nice pleasant surprises like Arslan, Shokugeki, Plastic Memories or Kekai Sensen but you sticked with the worst shows. XDDDDD
