This week’s episode was fairly interesting. Why do I say that? Well, we got to see more from the characters that aren’t Muromi which is a good change of pace. Honestly, I am not the biggest fan of Muromi’s character, but I am watching a show that revolves around her. Oh well, let’s get to it.
Muromi wakes up on a beach in Malaysia. She is very hung over and a local girl helps her out. As a token of her gratitude, Muromi rips off one of her scales and gives it to her. I say “rips off” very seriously because they made that look pretty painful. It makes sense because I wouldn’t want to rip off part of my skin. Apparently, a similar situation occurred when Yeti met Muromi. For some stupid reason, Muromi was stuck in the snow and Yeti brought her back to the cave for warmth. Well, the little girl gives some shells to Yeti as a thanks for helping the girl reunite with Muromi. There is a problem though. You can’t keep all of these seaborne around a cave that houses a juvenile harpy. The mementos get eaten and Takkun has to help Yeti get over it. I guess that is all that happened. Well, that and Takku getting holographic calls at school. The guy is pretty popular.
Current Opinion of the Show:
Not much has really changed in this department. I am still not a fan of the series as a whole. The jokes aren’t that great anymore, the characters are interesting only at first, and there isn’t really a story to be spoken of. I don’t really know how much this series could improve with a full time slot because I don’t really see much to build on. When I think of a short series that could grow, I always look for a story first. That is a big check in the no box. Then I look for unique aspects of the series. We are dealing with mermaids and other mythological creatures. I guess you could check yes there. I then look at the quality of the humor because you very rarely encounter a short series that isn’t a comedy. This is a tricky one because more time could mean that they utilize Takkun more often, but they don’t seem to like using him. I would check no if they don’t plan on using him more, but a very shaky yes if they do. A conditional two out of three with a bad foundation just doesn’t seem good enough to me. Maybe they’ll prove me wrong by the end of the series. I guess I can look forward to that.
