Long Title About How Girls Don’t Play MMOs #01 — And Then They All Do

April 7th, 2016


I continue to wonder if anybody in Japanese media has ever played a single MMO.


Oh good. Another one of these shows that's totally hip and with it, having overheard some kids talk about things on a bus one time, but then they got scared and ran away because the kids started talking about poking mans or something. It also doesn't so much tell jokes as it does repeat things it read off of 2ch. See? It knows your memes and trolls and lingo. Laugh because you recognized it. Laugh and clap your hands like a harp seal. I think my favorite 'joke' was "Why don't we have an offline meetup?" And everyone screamed. This is world class humor, far beyond my ken. Perhaps it might get a by if it made even an iota of sense. Lipservice made to them being super hardcore net gamers who hate people not as into gaming as they are, while simultaneously not caring about the game at all and being utter garbage at it because that's not girls being cute and so is out of everybody's comfort zone.

All of which begs the same question as Anne Happy; "What's this even trying to do?" Instead of pastel haze and friendship, it's closeups of tits and a harem. Otaku Spice, Bitchy Spice, Stupid Spice, and President Spice. That is the extent of their personalities and interactions with each other. Instead of making a doujin, or being in a band, or being a club for brushing hair, they play an online game, except not really. I'm hardpressed to call the throwaway insults it pulled from online chat boards jokes, and that's pretty much all it has. Well, that and having characters announce their and each other's personalities. An endless stream of introductions with such jokes as "She's like a tsundere, but without the dere." See!? We get your humor! Totally! And what do we have at the end of it? A club in all but name, but I fully expect that will come next week.

    I haven’t watched this yet, but I’m noticing there’s a lot of screencaps of sitting at tables.
