Mayoi Neko Overrun! episode 3 metablogged

Blasphemy.

“It was still an okay episode, but it was a bit overblown for something that popped up in just this episode. I’m not sure whether to say that that made it feel overly machinated or entirely too fast, but awkward is a good start. I’m also a bit disappointed that after Takumi tried to talk to Fumino about her confession, she very happily tells him it was a lie and flicks his nose. Damn resets to the status quo. I hate resets to the status quo. Let development stick, damn it. At least Takumi did try to talk to her about it instead of waffling around. Sadly, thanks to the angst quotient being cranked up to max for this episode, there wasn’t all that much humor, but there wasn’t too much of the irritating glasses guy either. No surprise Horie Yui attacks for that matter… le sigh.”Tenka Seiha

“Overall, a much more slower episode as the character dynamics are slowly being established and the show’s plot is moving on. It is interesting to know that each episode will be helmed by a different director, so I do wonder if they can follow each other up in terms of making the story cohesive. Obviously, each episode will be a fresh take since each director usually has their own little quirks and methods, I just wonder if we’ll get an episode full of random fish-eye-lens effects and powerpoint slides one week.” – Kurogane’s Anime Blog

“After what I felt was a jarring and lackluster showing last week, it’s nice to see this series bounce back with an element of depth one wouldn’t normally expect from a romantic comedy. Picking up right where we left off last time, the laughs and general fan-service were somewhat sparse, aside from Fumino coming out of the bath in the buff, but it was a really welcomed change-up that gave way for the character development to be center stage. I got a taste of this more dramatic side to things from my research-oriented read of the manga last month, but was pleasantly surprised at how well it transitioned on screen in the anime.

While it may not look like much on paper, the story involving Takumi and Fumino as orphans who felt really unwanted before and how it correlates to Nozomi’s current situation adds a really nice sentimental touch to the series. Given how Mayoi Neko comes off as a typical run-of-the-mill harem on the surface, this extra level of dimension to the story also helps differentiate it from being stereotyped as just that. Things weren’t quite enough to get me too emotionally into how Nozomi ran away after feeling like she wasn’t wanted and how Fumino felt responsible, but I was still taken back by how well all of that was portrayed. It was like all the jokes suddenly went out the window and we had a real serious outlook on orphans and what they have to go through mentally.” – DIVINE from Random Curiosity

“Cheesy, unexpected, but clearly a let down from last week’s episode.  Quality seemed to diminish as we see the same revolving plot.  Doesn’t help that the characters are freakin’ annoying to listen and watch.  The way the conflict drew out and was resolved made it seem like a pretty useless episode.  New directors = inconsistency = fail… perhaps.  But it’s still too early to decide, but I’m curious to learn more about our heroes as orphans.” – SPIRAL

    Reset? You forgot that when she said she does it mean she doesn’t. In this case, she said that she’s lying but obviously she meant that she does and you can tell by her happy face.

    I liked the artwork in the promo for this show, but decided to wait and see what the critical reaction was before picking it up. After 3 episodes I’m not seeing signs that it is worth the effort.
