Shitcom is like the Neon Genesis Evangelion of the deepest, darkest, dankest part of Hell's dump, the place where things like:
Mars of Destruction
Everything else Idea Factory ever made
That horrible Mario anime
One Punch Man
and many, many more came from.
Only Shitcom is made from the congealed drippings of those other anime, mashed into a malleable, turd looking form and then made into a stop motion video that MAL somehow considers anime. While I contend that "anime" refers to hand drawn or three dimensional computer generated productions, apparently poop(clay)-mation counts too.
Now, I mentioned that Shitcom is the NGE of Hell's dump's shit. This is not an unsubstantiated claim. In fact, Shitcom may be one of the deepest, thickest turds ever uploaded to the collective toilet of the internet. Why?
I make two cases:
1. It has actual metaphorical meaning.
Shitcom: two clay turds go out on a date. The shit-man pulls out a ring to propose to the feces-woman, but then she explosively vomits her scat all over herself, him, and everything else. The man responds in kind by mouth-shitting himself, her, and everything else. It ends with a kiss. Is it all a crappy poop joke like the one I just told?
Well, not in this shitty reviewer's mind!
Shitcom is an allegory for the crap that we all have inside of us. Some people feel like shit, some people are full of shit, and some people talk shit. But this couple is able to look past all that shit that comes bubbling out of each other and love the shit out of each other- literally. It's about how humanity has this dark, smelly, brown, sticky nastiness inside, and when it comes out, it's all in how we deal with it- either a mutual respect and looking past the shitty situation we find ourselves in, or just losing our shit and getting it everywhere, and on everyone.
2. It's literally about two people shitting themselves, and getting it everywhere.
So, like NGE, Shitcom has viewers split on whether it's a deep, satisfying metaphor in a 2 minute claymated span, or whether it's just a pretentious piece of crap.
You be the judge, but I'm erring on the side of shit.
