Gingitsune: Episode Seven Thoughts

Image

Fuck, this again? I already have enough problems with the characters in the show, why do I need more?

Okay, so what pissed me off this time?

It starts off with Yumi’s boyfriend calling for Mi-chan, the cat from the first episode. A monk tries to run away to home because apparently ghosts are running the place. Later that day, Makoto, Gin, Haru, and Satoru, go to the temple to investigate when Makoto sees two monkey heralds making pranks on the people and Haru. And I swear, they have the most annoying voices ever.

Because apparently, Haru wasn’t enough.

So Gin tries to get these two little shits to shut the fuck and stop pranking, but that fails. After that, Makoto asks why they’re always pranking people since they’re hurting people. Are you ready for this?

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11…

They just want to cheer people up during mourning times.

Okay, what the fuck? The main reason why people go to temples, from my inference, is to MOURN THE FUCKING DEAD. I highly doubt that trying to cheer those people up will actually cheer them up. You know, because THESE PEOPLE ARE MOURNING THE DEAD AND WOULD NOT WANT TO BE BOTHERED WHILE MOURNING!

So Makoto tells them that pranking the people at the temple is not going to cheer them up, but instead, helping is the answer. So the monkeys learn their lesson, and stop pranking.

What a fucking understatement.  Sometimes, I feel like dropping this anime. This is one of those times. But other times, I don’t want to drop this.

SomeBitchyPikoFan’s Clusterfuck #1~!

Image

I was lazy and decided not to do each anime per post, so I made this clusterfuck so that I wouldn’t do so much work.

  • Gingitsune~ Episode Six~

Image

You know, I’m kind of getting tired of Satoru.

What happened?

Makoto and her father have a welcoming party for Satoru, and she in invites Yumi and Hiwako to the party.

It’s nice to see these two again…

Satoru does not open up, and I can somewhat agree with this. Why? Because THEY KEEP FUCKING STALKING HIM!

So he goes to his room to study, and Haru the technically dead fox tells him to open up and talk to them. Does Satoru open up? Does this show try too hard? The answer to both is yes.

So the girls barge into his room to ask more question, and Yumi even takes a photo of him. Then…

…he snaps.

He fucking snaps. He gets onto them, and then they apologize for their bad behavior. Then they have some fun and ironically, Haru gets jealous. The End.

Ha ha ha ha fuck this shit.

  • Non Non Biyori~ Episode Six~

Image

You know, something about this atmosphere in Non Non Biyori makes me like this show.

 We start off by Natsumi’s mom scolding her youngest daughter for her poor grades. Natsumi, of course, makes up a bunch of bullshit excuses and claims that she never fucks up.

…Yeah, Natsumi is definitely going to become a serial killer…

So her mom tells her to review her lesson while Komari and Nii-chan listens to her. Mom, guessing that both children are eavesdropping, tells them to come out while mentioning that Komari’s English grade has dropped. So they run away.

Meanwhile, at Hotaru’s house…

Image

Oh. Dear. God.

JEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESUS, woman! I can understand that you want senpai to notice you. Hell, I can even understand that you have a crush on her as well. But maybe you should get into psychiatric help and a little bit of rehab as well.

So anyway, Renge, Natsumi, and Komari go to Hotaru’s house to play and perhaps study. Renge tries to find some toys when she notices the closet that the Komari plushes are in, and tells Hotaru to pretend that she’s a demon or else she’ll open the closet. Hotaru, embarrassed, goes along with it.

Meanwhile, Komari looks at pictures of Hotaru as a little kid. She mentions that the picture of Hotaru in the country was near here. Ho-Ho tells her that some of her relatives live in the country. While pretending to be a demon, she accidentally opens the closet door, and out goes the Komari plushes. So then the girls make plushes for a project.

Speaking of that Ho-Ho picture, Komari asks when it was taken. And do you know the answer…?

Last year. In fourth grade. She’s in fifth grade.

Then, Natsumi plays a truth or dare game by going to a shrine to put a five-yen-coin and running back. Komari gets to be the scarer, and I have to admit, she does a horrible job at it. But you know what? It’s cute, and that’s all.

Then without knowing, Nii-chan does the dare successfully. Komari goes to the shrine, and sees a coin, not knowing that her brother did this, thinks that a ghost did this. She goes down the stairs and notices everyone there. So they have some fireworks because Hotaru and Renge thought that they were just going to have fireworks. And that’s the show.

I think that out of the three that I’m doing here, this is the best.

Man, Nii-chan has a lot of balls. I think that he has the biggest balls in anime.

  • Miss Monochrome~ Episode Seven~

Image

Oh dear God… where do I begin?

We start off with Miss Monochrome on break, watching a Kikuo “concert” (if I can call it that) when the pink idol was holding something. Monochrome tells her manager that she was missing a prop, so her gives her a bunch of cleaning supplies, but none of them work. She then tells her manager that none of those props were working. So the manager tells her about Hatsune Miku and her prop, a leek. He then tells her that maybe she could use a vegetable as a prop. So she plants a bunch of veggies, and it all ends with tea and veggies.

I didn’t think that an episode would be as stupid as episode three, but this beat it by a mile. Miss Monochrome is boring.

Well, that’s that. You guys think that I should do this more often?

Gingitsune: Episode Five Thoughts

Image

Wait, where was I again?

Oh yeah…

Satoru tries to find Haru all by himself. That fails, however, so he gets help from Makoto and Gintaro.

Oh yeah, you wanna know how Haru became a God?

By a dead fox. She got ran over by a car. Like 80 years ago… yeah… Haru’s a girl…

GOD DAMN IT! I WISH SHE WOULD’VE STAYED DEAD BECAUSE SHE’S OBNOXIOUS!

Oh yeah, did I mention that Satoru had a terrible childhood? Well, you know now!

So anyway, we finally end by finding Haru and Haru being an annoying little shit.

Damn, this kind of sucked. I hope episode six gets better.

Oh by the way, how come every character I’ve met named Haru is either boring or annoying? It’s kind of over-kill, don’t you think?

Gingitsune: Episode Four Thoughts

Image

Did they really leave us on a cliffhanger?

Yes. They did. They actually did.

What’s the story?

A boy and his herald move into Makoto’s shrine. Gee, I wonder who?

Image

Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh…

You fuckers make things way too damn obvious, don’t you?

I digress, however.

The boy’s name is Satoru, and the herald’s name is Haru. What do I think of them?

Well, let’s see…

Oh yeah! Satoru is boring and Haru is an annoying little shit who needs his balls fixed. Why? Not because he practically bullies Makoto, his voice is annoying as well.

So anyway, they move in, and Makoto speaks to them in private. It turns out that Satoru is tired of Haru’s shit and wants to leave him hear.

Oh by the way, a shitty and generic back-story happens. I forgot to mention that.

The next day, Makoto oversleeps and gets to sleeping, but not before Satoru lol. Annoying Pain in the Scrotum insults Makoto more, and Sotaru finally tells him to piss off. Crying like a little butthurt baby, Annoying Pain in the Scrotum runs away. Makoto tries to fix things, but Satoru starts yelling at her as well.

Nothing is resolved, nothing is fixed…

… and that’s it…

Wow, that was certainly underwhelming… I hope this gets better soon.

Gingitsune: Episode Three Thoughts

Image

I’d run the fuck away too if I saw those faces when I first woke up.

Man, that ending to this episode was kind of depressing, don’t you think?

But, I digress.

What happened today?

Makoto finds a turtle, so she shows it to Gintaro and her father. But it turns out to be a herald. So Makoto and Gintaro have to find the shrine where the turtle lives (or a shrine where a turtle can live at). So they go on their way to the shrine but happen to meet Yumi and her boyfriend. However, it happens to be in a flea market. So they go to the flea market, but Makoto and Gintaro go to the shrine.

What about Yumi…?

Image

It’s okay to be mad, Yumi.

Two heralds, Righty and Lefty, came out because Gintaro told them to wake up. Makoto asks if the turtle could stay with them. Neither of them have a problem with it. So they put the turtle in the lake in the shrine at return to the flea market. After buying something I assume, she and Gintaro return home, but Makoto seems depressed. She tells him that she’ll be dead before he’ll die.

Damn, that’s kind of sad…

But then it all turns into a happy ending by (I assume) realizing that Makoto should appreciate life.

And that’s it.

I like this episode. It has a good story, some humorous moments, and even a sad moment in the end.

Yeah, I’m staying. 

Gingitsune: Episode Two Thoughts

Image

After my first impression, I thought I’d be dropping this by the second episode, or at the latest, the third. But to my surprise, it actually kind of got better.

The characters got better as well. I’m kind of seeing Gintaro and maybe Yumi as my favorites.

But, I digress. What’s the story this time?

When they get to school, Yumi and Makoto go to gym, and the vice-president of the student council, Hiwako, tells them to that Yumi is wasting her potential by wasting her time talking with her friends, and she also tells Makoto to be careful when choosing her friends. Thus Hiwako gets bullied. Makoto wants Yumi and Hiwako to apologize and get along, but they wouldn’t do it until the end. Then, Yumi’s “friends” corner Hiwako in the bathroom after Makoto invited Yumi to stay at her shrine. Makoto sees the entire thing, tries to help, but gets cornered as well. Yumi walks in and tells the dumb-asses to get the fuck out of her problems. Hiwako then loses it and releases emotions.

Remember when I told you that Yumi and she were going to make up, like a few sentences ago? Well, they did. And Makoto invites Hiwako to spend the night at her shrine. So they go to Makoto’s shrine, and that’s it. That’s the episode.

The character development, while a little slow, is doing pretty well. The style works for the series because it’s different, but not over the top like Kill la Kill. Still, I wish they’d show Gintaro more, but my wish could come true at some point. 

For what it is, it’s a pretty good show. It’s not the best in the Fall season (Galilei Donna has that.), but it’s a good show nonetheless. I say, check it out.

Gingitsune: First Impression

Image

I really wanted to love this anime so baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad!

I mean, don’t get me wrong; it’s not BAD, bad. It’s not even bad at all. It’s a great anime. However, something tells me that this would’ve worked a lot better as a movie or and OVA rather than a TV anime with 12 episodes.

So what’re the goods?

The animation is pretty good and the characters, especially Gintaro, are enjoyable as well. The opening theme is pretty well done as well.

Then, there are the flaws, which kind of ruin the anime for me.

First off, it’s really not a slice-of-life. As long as each episode has a plot or story, it’s technically not a slice-of-life. That’s like saying Family Guy and the Simpsons are slice-of-life cartoons when in actually, they’re not. Yeah, I’m kind of nitpicking, but tiny stuff like that can really bother me.

My biggest problem, however, are the clichés in the anime. But before that, let me tell you my rather obvious thoughts about clichés.

I FUCKING HATE THEM!

I don’t give a rat’s ass what it is. If it’s a cliché, I automatically hate it. No exception.

But, I digress.

I wouldn’t really be that bothered by it if they weren’t everywhere, but they are. And it was predictable. I knew that Makoto and Yuri were going to find that cat for Sa and Aki. I knew that Yuri was going to make up with her boyfriend. It was all predictable.

But those flaws surprisingly didn’t stop me from hating this anime. In fact, I like it just fine. I’ll stick around for a few more episodes.
