Here is an anime series that I honestly did not enjoy. There isn’t a lot going on I feel like the comedy isn’t that good. Does it have its appeal? I assume that it does because it did become an anime. I may not be part of its target audience, but I did sit through it all. Well, let’s see how this series left the Spring 2013 anime season.
The episode starts out on an oddly serious note. Takkun was given one of those sheets that you see in school series that ask you about your future plans. Asking kids what they want to do for a living is a pretty crazy idea in my opinion. Do you really know anything about the real world at that point? Oh well, Muromi wouldn’t really understand this situation because of a mermaid’s longevity. However, her advice regarding the situation was pretty nice. It was basically telling Takkun to cool off because there is a lot to life. A lot of people take life way too seriously. After that, the guy makes a necklace for Muromi out of a broken hook and an awkward conversation about orgies starts up. That is what I expect from the anime. People are enjoying a New Year’s party and everyone shows to watch the sunrise. The girls just came back from a hot spring and Takkun was stuck with Kawabata again. Well, the full group consisted of everyone that we met and some people who I don’t recall seeing. That wasn’t really odd, but the out-of-place New Year’s episode was strange to me. Oh well, that happens a lot in anime.
Current Opinion of the Show:
I did not like this series. It consisted of half-length episodes that focused on comedy that did not appeal to me. It was mostly sex jokes that were either uncomfortable or simply not entertaining. I preferred the jokes regarding mythological stuff. We meet mermaids, a kappa, an alien, a yeti, a harpy, and a tsuchinoko. If there was anything else, then I am sorry for neglecting it. I don’t think that sex jokes in general are bad. I simply did enjoy what I was getting from this series. I often complained about the fact that Takkun was absent from a lot of the gags. He played the straight man and I think that such a character is very important with this kind of comedy. Having said that, he wasn’t always great for the series. I was not a fan of the art. The head shapes got to me and the way that Fuji’s chest was animated is just horrible. Not the size, but the shape is what got to me. Overall, I don’t think that I would recommend this series to people. It must have its fans, but I am not one of them. Namiuchigiwa no Muromi-san came out in a very strong season and it did not hold up.
