Super Lovers #01 — To Catch a Predator

April 6th, 2016


I really don't think that's helping.


I know that I mentioned that it's pretty hard to write off the whole incestuous predatory 'relationship' here as just cultural differences, but after suffering through this episode, I realize now that I was underselling it. One of the supposed jokes that turns into a supposedly touching moment is how Protagonist A forces Protagonist B to sleep with him, and then A tries to stick his tongue in B's mouth. Yes. That is meant to not only be a comedic situation, but also one showing the depth of caring, complete with the usual pastel background, windchimes, and forty piece orchestral band serenading their love.

So it's certainly creepy, if nothing else, and I'd guess set on a completely different planet because these creatures it's about don't behave or interact at all like humans. And nothing else is indeed what else there is. Animation or story? Nah. What do you think this is, the Academy Awards? Humor? Well, I hope you like overreactions and pastel backgrounds, because those it has, in spades. And montages? You betcha! Anyway, this helpfully confirmed that it was just as bizarrely out of touch with reality and dull as was advertised on the cover. Book thusly judged, I fear spending many more brain cells on it.

Next Episode:

Forced cohabitation with a predator.

    His top mouth or his bottom mouth?

    The protagonist is 16 so is this still predatory? Oh course YES but still. I only sampled the manga but it is full blown Yaoi… Run, run, run!
