HnG EP4 Rambling: Kashii, Deviations once again, Pace and Kashii

*Note: This Episode Rambling will be longer than previous ramblings*

Remember that time when we all finished reading Chapter 37? We were in pretty good moods, and I’m pretty sure many of us were all like,”Banzai! Cheers! Now we know how the adaptation is going to end! Happy Ending for Junichi X Yame san!”

I was certain too. Sure, some changes might be inevitable, considering the length of the show (10 episodes long). And they happened. Just as we have all foreseen.

Except that the deviations were much more drastic than any of us could have possibly anticipated.

After having seen the extent of these deviations in the first three episodes, I was a bit worried about how the studio NAZ had handled the episode 4, which focuses on Kashii arc(A.K.A. Glasses-Kun’s Favorite Arc+Reason/Motivation for him to have spent hours to translate Ch31-37 on Photoshop). Just a tiny bit…yep, just a bit. It’s not like I don’t believe in Studio NAZ. I mean that studio did pretty good projects like….*checks and scrolls through its MAL page*…like…well, taste is subjective, so I won’t say anything. There is no such thing as a bad show, I daily tell myself. It’s just that some shows don’t pique our interests.

And seeing tweets like these certainly didn’t ameliorate the foreboding feeling I had at the back of my mind.

#Gratitude To My Twitter Followers For Warning Me…

Nevertheless, after several years of spending time with these mediums of storytelling (Manga/Anime) that are unfortunately seen with strong social prejudice, I came to learn that one should not rashly judge or make assumptions. So I prepared myself mentally and went in to battle field. To see the studio’s adaptation, decisions and depiction of Kashii. I read Aho Girl, and for those who are unfamiliar with the name, it basically means my mind is ready for any surprise or whatsoever.

Alice to Zouroku: The Underdog of 2017 Spring

If there is one thing that I am upset about with this anime season, it is that not much attention was paid to a show named Alice to Zouroku. Frankly, it was not that surprising, considering the high number of this season’s dominant shows such as Shingeki no Kyojin S2, Eromanga-sensei, and Boku no Hero Academia S2. Moreover, Alice to Zouroku came across as a simple loli-bait show; in this area of interest, it was already beaten by Eromanga-sensei. As a result, this show went unnoticed by many during this ending season.

What happened to Alice to Zouroku is basically another repetition of the past tragedy with Demi chan wa Kataritai (Interview with the demi-girls) from the previous season. An another interesting underdog that many senpais worldwide did not take notice of. (more…)
