Uh… what did I just watch again? Wasn’t this show about cute little fairies that love candies and help the silly humans when conditions call for it?

Ok, Jintai was certainly way beyond what I expected from this show judging from the previews I saw. It seems to be perfectly fine presenting an all cutesy façade while delivering punch-lines that would rank right up there with Nichijou in surrealism humor power-levels (if there ever was one). Nevertheless I like it when shows go beyond expectations and this show certainly delivered.

Of course, another good reason to love this show is our heroine, played wonderfully by Mai Nakahara, fully utilizing her awesome acting skills…

    LOL good lord, the close ups look like Higurashi’s Rena, def utilizing her voice acting. BUT YEAH. The trailers made me WTF, so I was braced for the headless chickens at least. But mixed carrot juice bread…….. WAIT, WHAT!?!?!

    Dat ED. Judging by it (girl shambling through apocalyptic ruins before tripping and injuring herself, crying, then falling over again and dying of starvation as flowers grow around her) this show is going to be surprisingly dark. I like it.

    From the writer who wrote Cross+Channel and The drug that makes you dream, I don’t expect any less than this.

    When I was watching this I completely lost it at the chicken. Couldn’t watch the show properly after that.

    Probably best show in the season. Fucking brilliant, funny, and depressing.

    Also it summarizes the misery of Western manufacturing industries with that bread scene.

    I reckon the “fairies” are actually post-humans.

    Notice how the fairy disappeared at the same moment the human guide showed up. Coincidence? Or are they the same.

    I heard about deadpan humor before, but never pictured it this way…
