I Like Cute Things, you See
I wish that shows would stop doing this to me. “Oh, i’m not blogging you anymore.” “Here, have a really fun episode to make up for it!”
If you understood my rambling, this episode of Little Busters was actually really fun, with the slapstick humour appearing to have improved a little bit. Focusing on getting the final four members of their baseball team, they focus on Kurugaya appearing this week. Whilst she may be a Mary Sue, she does her job of being perfect pretty well, and I feel that she’s a pretty good addition to the team, not being afraid to point out that Riki’s moe AND male, and although she has a katana with her, she’s got the most edgy sense of humour in the group, a really welcome addiction to the lowbrow humour the others have. She may be mean and cruel to Riki, but she likes cute things, after all.
…but uh, I can’t help but think i’m enjoying this for the wrong reasons. I respect that some animes would much rather tick all the boxes for the routes in a VN rather than focusing on one, but this almost feels like a direct adapation from the VN, doing everything all the time. It doesn’t help that i’m not really convinced about Little Busters yet, either. I’m told that this gets really good, but…is it just a slow burner, or have they failed to light the candle in the first place?
