Mitsudomoe 01

Mitsudomoe

I had my reservations on how the show would turn out to be, but it looks like that worry was unfounded given that I’m already laughing 2 seconds in to the OP.

Mitsudomoe

Lesson of the day #1: Do not attempt to annoy Hitoha-chan. That evil eye isn’t something normal!

Mitsudomoe

Lesson of the day #2: Do not play Nandemo Basket with the Marui triplets present. It will end up with war and fatal injuries…

Mitsudomoe

…. like this.

Mitsudomoe

Holy shit that was the most awesome line of the episode.

Mitsudomoe

And they even made it work!

Mitsudomoe

Although….

Mitsudomoe

Mitsudomoe

Ouch. Fucking ouch. Poor Yabe-cchi.

Mitsudomoe

<insert bamboo vendor sounds here> (think Ichigo Mashimaro)

Mitsudomoe

Lesson of the day #3: Never name the class hamster “Nipples”

Mitsudomoe

No. Seriously.

Mitsudomoe

Oh god…I’m laughing so hard here my Nipples are erect!

Mitsudomoe
(still more laughing)

Mitsudomoe
(rolling on the floor and more laughing)

Mitsudomoe
… ha-haaa-hahahaa… Oh god you said it right, miss!

Oh boy, I laughed pretty hard at the zaniness of the whole shebang despite knowing pretty much what was coming after reading some of the translated manga chapters. The effect’s better animated and voiced actually. Not exactly the show to show to kids though, even if the whole cast are kids.

But seriously, this show will be hit or miss for you depending on how well one can take perverted adult jokes being presented by innocent looking 11-12 year olds. If you’re a lolicon for that sort of thing… I guess it’s great, but on the other end of the spectrum… durr hurr hurr.

Admitedly, I am pretty disturbed by some of the stuff happening in this episode, for example the war scene in the beginning and the “aim crotch for romance” part, but it’s best to take it at face value in for this sort of thing. Hiro Shimono is sure feeling how Satoshi Hino usually feels like in his roles, hahaha.

Overall, great first episode for this sort of thing. Hopefully it won’t go too gimmicky or too boring later on!

P.S. Last leg of my Q-finals in the ABT! Vote for me :P

    Ichigo Mashimaro mixed with Kodomo no Jikan.

    Words fail. Except good evil is hard to find.

    I was going more for Today in Class 5-2 meets Minami-Ke but I think they both work.

    Why does she have a breast pillow!?

    Kaisos: Yes, she does.

    My brain is having a hard time processing this. It’s funny, but wrong. So deliciously wrong. And to think I thought I was jaded at my age…

    for those discomforted by crude humor generated by gradeschoolers, just remember south park does the same thing to a far greater extent.

    a little part of me died while watching that

    not so much a little part as most of me

    fortunately that part was weak, now I am stronger in the ways of loli lol’s

    @hshng: I think the issue is that South Park is about a group of little BOYS, whom you would normally expect to be perverted. (Not that the little girls in South Park aren’t perverted.)

    And then if you think about the fact that this show is probably trying to sell itself to pedophiles, and, well…

    KnJ does have darker elements. This feels more like Kanokon meets Ichigo Mashimaro and regressing in age.

    This is perhaps one of the best loli-centric comedies I have seen in years, with the humor being unusually dark and the drama kept to a minimum (so far).

    If people are, even in this age, offended by lolicon, I am afraid you need to go back in time and stay there. If you actually compare unrealistic drawings with real humans, goddamn, you need a serious reality check.

    The same team who worked on Minami-Ke (the good first season) is working on this and it shows.

    Too bad the only sub for this was a shit.

    Wow, even I wasn’t that ‘bad’ back then, it really makes you wonder what are their parents like…

    Indecency has never looked so good

    I’m surprised you didn’t mention the porn Hitoha was reading. XD

    Sexual innuendos is the cancer that is killing ℳℴℯ❤ anime.

    Shin: Moe is the cancer killing anime. This is chemotherapy.

    @Haess: Chemoetherapy… We need to trademark that…

    I really don’t see where people are getting any kind of moe vibes from this. I’ll admit that an uninformed reading of the premise and quick skim of certain screenshots might give that impression (look at the Sankaku Complex article on this for a national politics level attempt to spin it as loli moe), but it’s almost like there’s a little undercurrent of “Hey lolicons, we suckered you in, so come choke on the complete lack of the sexual tension you perverts love!” The South Park reference is very apt, I think.

    The ideal example of how this is the anti-KnJ is this: In the scene where Futaba remarks to her elder sister, “I can see your pantsu!”, do we the audience see her pantsu? No, we don’t. It’s not necessary to get the joke (or not so much a joke, but Futaba’s identification as a perv), but not only would it be necessary (and they’d be spending half the animation budget on getting the prepubescent camel toe “just right”) if this were a loli moe show, but the whole scene would have been leading up to it.

    People are probably just seeing “moe” in the title and not bothering to go any further. Look up “mitsudomoe” on Wikipedia and you’ll see just how much that “moe” is taken out of context.
