Heya! Been a while since we last spoke. How have you been?

I wanted to stop by to let you know that I watched the first episode of Mouryou no Hako... and I'm kind of impressed with what I've seen so far. Kyougoku's love for Japanese folklore really shines through in this show, and the disastrous mother-daughter dynamic is beautifully written. I think there are a few concepts that need to be further developed, like the whole "past self/life" charade, but all in all I'm interested in seeing where Mouryou no Hako will take its narrative.

Also, do you know if Mouryou no Hako takes time to discuss the possessed dolls in its later episodes?

You're welcome. A lot of people eat on my case for disliking it too.

I wouldn't say she's a Mary Sue since not too much revolves around her and she's so incompetent that the only time she ever does something right, it backfired horribly. However, she is certainly downright insufferable. I can't stand the kind of protagonist that is a horrible person "but it's ok because she's hot and comedy", and Aqua gets increasingly bad as the series goes on. I detest her so much that I dropped the show at least once because of her.

Yeah, modern Isekai suck in general; even the parody is god awful.

Glad to meet another person who dislikes Konosuba.

I almost entirely agree with your thoughts of the treatment of Kazuma. Admittedly it was funny for 4 episodes not just because everything was new there, but it felt as if not only did he deserve at least some of the misfortune he received, but that he could successfully be enough of a funny asshole to not feel like the world is simply out to get him for no reason and that he stand a fighting chance by quips and behavior alone. For every gloriously rude move or great quip, he hot a little bit of shit to balance it out. That faded away quickly, and only got worse in the second season where he never deserved ay of the shit he got and it became clear that Konosuba genuinely wants to tear down decent people and laud those who horrific human beings or otherwise just complete assholes who never get what's coming to them (at least without Kazuma going through hell and back for getting a well-deserved quip or douchey action on them). Easily the worst of this is Aqua, but Megumin quickly rose up as a prominent problem with this in season 2. The fact that the humor was repetitive as sin without any variety whatsoever, only made things worse.

So yeah, at this rate, avoiding the second season and beyond until the end of time is a viable option.

1. Your comments on Koi Kaze have definitely piqued my interest in the show. It will definitely be a high priority on my PTW list.

2. As for Konosuba, I probably won't watch the second season (I hear that it's ten times as awful as the first) but I'll certainly check out the original (and possibly write a review for it as well). Although... I am curious as to why Konosuba's first five minutes turned you off. You mentioned that the show is boring and bland; did the first five minutes make that negative of an impression on you?

3. Based on your description of Mouryou no Hako, I'm extremely hesitant to watch it. Not only am I not a fan of monotony but pandering has almost always irritated me. Also, the tonal issue you brought up is a huge red flag for me; a show that doesn't understand how to keep its mood consistent isn't worth acknowledging. If you don't mind me bringing this up again, Mouryou no Hako was created by Natsuhiko Kyougoku, the same man who made Requiem from the Darkness. Requiem is a show that has earned my respect because it not only explores a multitude of concepts but it's also engaging at the same time. You're never bored while watching it; each episode has its own intricate story to tell and it never fails to absorb you into what it has to offer. There's a lot more that I can mention about the show but I think I've said plenty. I might check out Mouryou no Hako but my expectations are pretty low; something tells me it won't be as good as Requiem from the Darkness. Gwendal, please watch Requiem. I can guarantee that it won't disappoint you.

4. If it's alright with you, I would like to know what parts of Rainbow were infuriating. I want to learn what to look out for when I watch it.

I've gotten through worse, haha. Thanks

I completely understand your morbid fascination with awful shows; sure, there have been hundreds of thousands of people that have torn Mars of Destruction to shreds but my curious side, intrigued as to why these people would label MOD as one of the all-time worst, couldn't resist watching it. Thanks for reading my review for The Laughing Salesman; looking back on it, I think it was one of my better critiques and I'm glad you enjoyed it.

1. Koi Kaze isn't an anime I hear people talk about very often but it's received high praises from friends of mine (and, in the case of what I wrote in my tag, a former friend as well) so it's because of them that it's on my PTW. To be perfectly honest, I don't know much about Koi Kaze so I would be interested to know why you'd recommend it. Please forgive me if this sounds ignorant but isn't Koi Kaze essentially discussing the same topic as something like Eromanga-sensei?

2. For me, Konosuba is... complicated. On the one hand, I love the memes and GIFs that have sprouted from this show; also, I feel as though the Megumin fanbase is just amazing (anything's possible if you can convince thousands of people to support a character that's only known for blowing things up). On the other hand, however, Konosuba has been flayed alive by more than a few viewers, some of whom I trust and respect. From what I've seen, these viewers aren't just blindly hating on the show; they're using legitimate and logical bits of criticism that come from a place of understanding. It's because of this that I'm hesitant to watch Konosuba. I mean, I WANT to watch it because it's one of the biggest comedies around but I'm afraid of being disappointed by it. I guess it's best that I start watching Konosuba with lowered expectations.

3. To be honest, I don't know much of anything about Mouryou no Hako other than what I read from the synopsis. I was interested in it because it's made by the same person that created Requiem from the Darkness (an all-time favorite of mine) but I would like to know why your impression of Mouryou no Hako seems so lukewarm.

4. Don't worry; Rainbow is definitely a show I'll watch in the near future.

Hey, I don't mind random comments! Well, thanks again for reading my reviews.
