Working #30 — A Whole Episode About Relationships

July 25th, 2015


Header thumbnails chosen to be as misleading as possible about episode content.

FYI, Crowds’s broadcast is delayed by over an hour today to the same time as Rokka, so… the ‘simulcast’ will go from being an hour and a half off from ‘simultaneous’ to kind of technically being up before the actual broadcast finishes… maybe. I don’t want to do the math.


Patience is rapidly running thin as we trod further and further down the Genshiken path to conclusion, which is to say jettisoning everything for relationship melodrama. Especially since the main thing of the episode was Yachiyo insecurely prattling on about the hug at the end of the last episode, with I think four damn flashbacks to it in case you had forgotten it. Of course, not actually resolving anything or going anywhere. If anything, it moved backwards, which is really no great surprise at all. He’s totally a friend, dawg. Oh these girlish feelings. Whatever will I do. It just gives me such the vapors to feel this way.

The rest of the episode was padded out by mostly the most hilarious two members of the cast, Katanashi and Inami, and man, I can never get enough of them! You see, Katanashi might be liking Inami more now than he used to, and boy, is that a hilarious joke. So basically, it was an entire episode of characters prattling about their relationships with the opposite sex, as completely nonexistent as they are. This is going to be the entire season, isn’t it?

    They should keep Yachiyo as a lesbian, in that way avoid discussing feeling because with Kyouko she don’t had issues.

    I dropped it when Souma went from creepy schadenfreude lover to hardcore anime shipper. Call me when it gets better.
