Something tells me that Safu’s more than just a little horny. The sad thing is that Shion actually thought about sleeping with her or going off with a dude…which he did, or a rat to be more precise. Hooray for ambiguous sexuality! Despite all of that strangeness, I find myself quite enjoying this show. The initially beautiful utopia is slowly degenerating into something along the lines of a totalitarian state; I wonder if the other numbered cities are the same. Oh boy, I could rant for ages thanks to this anime. All the good stuff like government, morality, yadda yadda yadda.
Blurgh, covering two shows a day just might kill me, and with my location being the other side of the world from where most of my readers come from, I’m bound to be a bit late anyways. Nevermind that for now, I’ll probably save that for my death post (*le gaspeh, will there even be one?) and for now, let’s get on to Usagi Drop and No. 6, though the latter will be first. Weird how things pan out.
I’m positively in love with the artistic stylings of the new anime, Usagi Drop. While I initially cast off the rather strange artwork as being a byproduct of a lack of skill, I can see that’s not the case. This isn’t one of your moe-blob shows, so don’t expect anything along the lines of K-ON or Baka to Test.
I’ll be the first to say that this sort of development is really far-fetched. What 70 year-old goes off and has a child behind his family’s back? But I digress, it’s a work of fiction and so, my suspension of belief will have to hold for now. Once you look past the odd set-up, you’ll be able to appreciate Usagi Drop for what it is, a touching tale of bonding between the black sheep of the family. (PS. No. 6 is also in this post.)
