Posted on 22 January 2011 with categories: Mitsudomoe



Okay. Um. Mitsudomoe’s second season’s episodes so far have all been completely different. This is very good for a comedy, but this episode showed the bad side of this. I mean… it did just about every bad thing that the previous two episodes avoided so well. What the hell?

Last episode I noted how the previous two episodes now only made a sex joke when they had a genuinely funny one. This episode showed what happened to the bad ones. I mean, seriously: this entire episode was full of bad sex jokes. And a bad normal joke is bad enough already, but when a sex joke falls flat it’s ten times worse. To make things even worse, this episode also brought back the worst misunderstandings that were already milked out too much in the first season.

I mean, this was bad. Really bad. There only were three or four good jokes in the entire episode. Especially the triplet’s father suffered here: he went completely out of character for the sake of a bad nude joke (by far the worst part of this episode was when he randomly started to strip; when did this guy turn into a complete and utter moron?!). Another really bad segment was the earthquake test. Again, there is a fine balance between silly jokes and the utter stupidity that that segment devolved into.

I don’t think I have ever seen a comedy that jumped from this good to so outright bad from one episode to the other. Due to the random nature of this series I’m going to give this one one more chance next week. If next week’s episode is good and like these first three episodes completely different, then there’s no problem. If next week’s episode is as terrible as this one though, then the first two episodes were just flukes and I’m going to swap it in with Gosick…

    WTF did i tell you before about not trusting such anime?

    Sorry, but this was obvious for Mitsudomoe…

    I think it’s funny that your sense of humor and Aroduc’s are polar opposites.

    don’t go for gosick, try get a new look on zombie plz

    I’ve realized that every anime you dislike, i love. So I enter this page to view the anime you give worst points…

    zombie or dragon crisis,well anything DEEN produces without bishounen in their mind ….

    This is weird, I was cracking up in this episode.

  8. hoiut says:

    I’m more surprised you chose this over a comedy like Zombie or a solid(er) title like GOSICK in the first place!

  9. Dgrin says:

    I understand where this is coming from but to e honest, when I watch mitsudomoe I expect just what I saw on episode 03, some random pointless laughing instead of the craziness of episode 01, my brother who is not an Anime fanatic loves mitsudomoe cause it’s fast and has a lot of WTF moments but he nearly died of boredom during the first two episodes of s02, on ep03 he was having fun again,

    @Aidan: My current ranking of the visual novels I’ve played goes like this:
    1. Swan song 2. Saya no uta 3. Sharin no kuni 4. Kara no shoujo 5. G senjou maou 6. Fate/stay night.

    @Aidan:And though not a big thing, I really liked the soundtrack to this and felt it went a long way.
    The investigation and notebook parts were a nice touch. I also thought the bits where the game put you in the head of the killer were very effective.
    So yeah another good recommendation from you, you know your stuff in any case.
    Issues then, any time it stopped being serious, didn’t like the h-scene I got, Tojiko is kind of annoying.

    @Aidan:Of the characters I was most interested in the adults , mostly Reiji and Natsume.
    The plot/mystery itself was engaging, well paced and thought provoking, its good to read a story that gets me using my head. In addition to being moody and immersive the game also lingers on and stays with me after playing which is a good sign of its impact. I also was quite fond of the depressing and macabre nature of the game

    @Aidan:Yo’ Mr A, I had a go of Kara no shoujo and completed my first playthrough of it, felt I’d tell you how I got on.
    I wound up getting Orihimes ending, I focused largely on her, Yukari and Toko. However I have taken a look at playthroughs/walkthroughs of other endings/lead up to those endings including the true end.

    @Emma It feels like all a sham, really. And the heat… 40° celsius outside at 12 AM. And I still see people working. This is eye opening for me as well, as I had previously never been to the UAE.

    @Asuka:Admittedly my knowledge of Dubai is slim, I feel like you’ve taught me something. But from the sound of it I agree, it seems like a genuine sorry state of affairs.

    But the UAE is an exception, because no matter which person in the service industry you talk to, the story is identical. They’re here on a temporary work permit (usually 2-5 years), and work 12+ hours per day, 6-7 days per week. They’re literally bused to work, work all day, bused back to their “compound,” sleep, and start the cycle all over again.

    @Emma But here’s what’s depressing about the UAE — it’s the first place I’ve honestly felt sorry for the people serving me, be it in a restaurant, hotel, taxi, or elsewhere. I’ve seen poverty, but I’ve never felt “sorry” for the average person there. That’s simply because I don’t think there’s a connection between wealth and happiness. You see families in India living in poverty that are happy because they value what’s important in life (health, family, etc.),

    I have heard that rich Irish people tend to fancy trips to Dubai and thats a thing but I know no more than that.

Mushishi – 07

Now this was such a beautiful episode. We often see Mushi portrayed as parasites. In fact, they are pretty much based on the insects and viruses of their world. There probably are enough real viruses and insects living in the Mushishi world, but they just aren’t the focus of the series. Anyway, what they did […]

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – Stardust Crusaders – 06 & 07

This is where this arc gets weird. We’re still in adventure modus, however in these two episodes Jotaro not only meets some of the most bizarre Stand users, it’s also done in the most camp way possible. You can see a clear difference with the first two seasons of Jojo: there it was all about […]

Episodes 05 and 06 are dedicated to character-development.

I have not forgotten about this show. Not at all. I just finished marathoning these four episodes, and holy cheeseballs on a stick! this is the best anime in years!

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – 03 – 05

Jojo really is not kind to its females. Every time a hint is even dropped to a girl kicking ass here, it comes with this weird plot-twist that undermines any fighting potential of them. In this arc, it’s the rule that says that your stand will kill you if youaren’t strong enough. And so, Joseph’s […]

Ping Pong – 03 & 04

The opening of Ping Pong wasn’t done in time, so the first two episodes showed a sortof montage as a placeholder. Now we know why, with episode 03 and 04. The creators actually got the single best animator currently in the business to oversee it: Shinya Ohira. This guy understands animation like no other. The […]

Ping Pong – 02

Yes, I know that more people here were involved in making this series beyond Masaaki Yuasa. It’s written by the creator of Tekkon Kinkreet, Taiyo Mashimoto. That guy is awesome. And the combination between those two makes this series even better. Because here’s the thing: anime is significantly different from manga or light novels. Beyond […]

We can never quite get rid of magic fights at a school, now can we, Jojo. Ah well, I forgive it this time, just due to how hilarious it looks seeing these ridiculously bulky men walk around pretending to be high school students. It’s just so over the top, and yet Jojo sets itself apart […]

Mushishi Season 2 – 02

Oh yes. This is it. This is what storytelling should be about: telling real stories about real people, all with their own problems that need to be overcome. And this show does that time and time again in just one episode. I still can’t believe how authentic this series is. The thing is, when I […]

Kick Heart

Okay, so I didn’t want to exit 2013 without having seen Masaaki Yuasa’s Kick Heart. It’s only twelve minutes anyway, and I consider him to be one of the best anime directors out there. The story here is pretty silly and mostly serves as a backdrop, so I mostly want to talk about the nature […]

Kyousogiga Review – 90/100

Everyone’s taste is different, and that’s a wonderful thing because that allows us to have so many different forms of media that all aim toward their own niche.

Noucome! You do not want to know how long I have been waiting for a series like this. More than half a decade, at the very least. Finally a series comes along and puts the incredibly overused harem genre in its place. And it actually does it well. Thank you! So to elaborate: the harem […]

Normally I try to avoid spoilers with these reviews, but screw it, it’s Pokemon. Pokemon The Origin is a bomb of nostalgia.

I’m not going to dedicate a post for my impression for the final three episodes of this series. It was just too boring to write much about.

Silver Spoon Review – 86/100

When Noitamina started airing two series per season, it was amazing. It’s a timeslot that on average tends to be aimed at a much older audience than usual, and having two series with the same mentality definitely helped to bring more diversity to anime overall. Unfortunately it’s a schedule that could not be kept up […]

Reviewing a comedy sequel usually is quite simple: in most cases it just drops the bomb and runs out of inspiration, and in rare cases it actually manages to stay hilarious. The tricky thing with these kinds of series is that you need to remain funny, and you need to have the inspiration for that. […]

I like surprises, like when a series comes that just turns out to be good against my expectations.
