She’s My Girlfriend Too #01 — IS BEING LOUD A PUNCHLINE!?

July 2nd, 2021

 

ASKING FOR A FRIEND WHO HAS NOT BEEN DEAFENED BY THIS SHOW.

I'm on the road for much of tomorrow, but probably not until the afternoon, so I should be able to get to all the premieres before I'm incommunicado, but there are four shows, with one having an hour-long first episode. It's the three school-club dramas and Realist Hero though, so I expect only suffering regardless.

Impressions:

I was pretty checked out of this show by the time we reached the five minute mark. It is so loud and so exhausting. For minute or so, I wondered if the weird texture overlay was going to be there for the entire thing. I also played with thoughts over how ridiculous the tableau was, a girl saying she liked a dude who looked traumatized and was in a stance like he was about to bolt out of the pure terror of the situation. That was a nice respite for my mind, but it was not to last. The shouting quickly started and it never stopped. Nothing can be reacted to that can't be shouted. No even minor event can pass without someone's eyes going wide as dinner plates, an explosive effect thrown up on screen, and some screaming. Except the fanservice bath time of course. That is when we cover 90% of the screen in a white haze. Got to sell those DVDs somehow. 

It was bad. Comedy should not cause physical pain and a longing for peace and quiet. Even the high octane slapsticks I've watched in the past that fatigued my brain trying to keep up relied on more than just shouting about every little thing. The best I can say is that this causes some personal introspection. The trashy fanservice comedies I enjoyed/tolerated in the past like Macademy, Nagasarete Airantou, or even Tomorrow's Yoichi, were they actually better than this? Did they have the slapstick and actual fanservice I remember, or am I pining for shows that never actually existed? Have anime comedies changed, or have I? Or is this just a particularly lazy, poorly produced and written twenty minutes of screaming and mawking for the camera trying to fake itself as a comedy?

4 Shouts From the Peanut Gallery

    I usually don’t read up on shows before they air, but I saw that this is from the creator of Aho Girl, whose one and only joke was “girl is dumb. also loud.” So I couldn’t be less excited for another show from the creator of that genius concept.

    • Champiggy says:

      Damn, if it’s by the guy who made aho girl, it prolly has some amazing plot and a deep meaning, jk I luv bub

  • The Phantom says:

    This is the most bizarre show I have seen in a very long time, the premise is stupid but it does not take itself seriously anyway, what kinda amazed me was the crazy thing it proposes one after another, unfiltered, that alone keep me interested, not entertained but hooked to see what is proposing next, they cant keep up this pace but for now is enough watch it imo,

  • Ark noir says:

    I love aho girl. It was easily one of my fav animes of recent times due to the timing of the intentional cringe scenes and the aftereffect. The office tv show does this on a different scale but still the anime was good plus mc slapped her up regularly which she deserved.

    This one I didn’t know how to respond. I didn’t laugh once, I didn’t turn my nose up at it, I was just indifferent to it. I’ll watch it a bit more to see if it resonates like the other one. The shouting though…….
