Japan will turn anything and everything into a little girl. I watch Haiyore! Nyaruko-san, so there is nothing that you can say to convince me otherwise. Why am I bringing this up? We got to meet a yeti today. Well, we got to meet a little girl who was supposed to be a yeti. Muromi went on another one of her barely comedic adventures which resulted in a trip to Kyoto with Yeti. The young girl makes her own katana back home at the Himalayas and she uses it to save a harpy. Yeah, we are going to be meeting all kinds of mythical creatures in this series. A good portion of the episode was spent dealing with the fact that the baby harpy, named Harpy, is a bird and Muromi is a fish. They pulled that whole food chain thing again and Muromi was getting beaten up. What did I learn about this universe? Mermaids can use the abilities of other fish for defense. That might be an interesting thing if this wasn’t a comedy. Also, they treat the mythical creatures like their real life counterparts to an extent that is kind of odd. Harpy forgets things after she takes three steps, Muromi is afraid of a baby bird, and Harpy can be trained by giving her food. Time for a better question. What did I take away from all of this? Nothing really. I can honestly say that I did not laugh at all while watching this episode of Namiuchigiwa and that is really bad because this is a comedy.
Current Opinion of the Show:
I don’t even laugh while watching this series anymore. This is a half-length comedy, so I don’t expect much from it. I don’t really care that the story is nonexistent and there doesn’t even have to be a lot of character development. However, when things stop being funny, you are left with nothing. I felt like I wasted twelve minutes of my life. There is no longer anything left that makes me want to watch this series. No story, no real character development, and art that irritates me would have made me run away from this anime if it were a full-length series. I guess that I can hope for the series to be funny again. The only problem with that is the fact that I use the word “again” very lightly. I don’t remember thinking that the comedy was stellar to begin with. Did I like anything about this episode? Hii-chan started giving out little facts regarding both real and mythical creatures. That was charming to me, but that is because I love random facts. I can’t really say that I am looking forward to anything, but I do hope that the series gets better in general.
