We at RABUJOI know you have a lot of options about where to go for anime recaps and reviews, but if you’re reading this, it’s probably because you’ve chosen us, so we thank you. We’ll never lose sight of that, and we are hoping that you and yours have a happy and healthy holiday season.
Also, if you’re fortunate(?) enough to be together with family for Christmas dinner, be sure to bring up horror stories about how one of your fellow trainees stole a potato!—Hannah, Zane, & Preston
Denki-gai no Honya-san is the funniest, most creative anime series no one is watching this season. While episode 9 suffered a similar fate to Amagi Brilliant Park 9 (they were both about making fun of being cliched but were still just too cliche), it was still funny, touching and a pervy good time.
Unfortunately, the technical nature of DgnHs’s humor is difficult to write about and time consuming. Given how much time I’m losing to holiday events and family this season, I can’t justify the effort. Not for 1% of the readership my Fate/Stay Night reviews are getting.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s easy to understand why DgnHs is low on everyone’s list. It’s not very pretty, the intelligence of the structure requires digging, and it really does lean towards girl-love (and nerd girl love at that) as it’s core perspective.
This week’s episode was about summer colds… and Christmas. Again.
Why have we had two christmas episodes in the first half of this show’s season?
I have no idea but the unhinged brutality of the humor in the second arc was heart warming. I mean, what can I say that these screen caps aren’t telling you?
So, with a sad heart, I bid good bye to my funny little love here.
No! I’m still watching the randy girls of Tokyo’s perviest comic shop each week but, like Shirobako, I won’t be writing about it.
Whether you celebrate Christmas or any other holiday around this time of year, RABUJOI wishes you happiness, joy, and cheer.
