Mayoi Neko Overrun! episode five metablogged


“One of the things that have impressed me with AIC’s work in comedies as of late is their tendency to try and tie in every episode with those before it, which isn’t something that one would normally expect from this genre. Most recently, they did this in Sora no Otoshimono and Nyan Koi, where there was an abundant amount of manga material to work with for both series and they managed to piece together one cour adaptations that came off like single cohesive units. What’s particularly unique in Mayoi Neko’s case though is that the studio has opted to switch in a different director and key animator every episode, yet the continuity still feels like we have one well-planned series. Had someone not been told this was the case or bothered to check themselves, they probably wouldn’t have known any better (myself included).” – Random Curiosity

“I do think that they’re really shooting themselves in the foot with how much they’re overplaying the drama once again. Particularly from the audience’s viewpoint, all these events happened over the last 15 minutes, but here’s Takumi, crying and punching his ground just because he didn’t realize that Chise wanted to hang out with the rest of them. Dial it back at least 8 notches there, AIC. Even Takumi couldn’t remember anything past what was introduced this episode. It really makes me wonder/fear what they’re going to do for the obligatory overly dramatic season ending bit. A triple suicide while quoting Proust?” – Tenka Seiha

“I really don’t understand how this show can have directors for each different episode, but it certainly doesn’t work out now.  Incorporating too much of the previous episode kills the current one and what the hell are they crying about each time.  My thoughts of this episode can be summed up by the following screen-cap:

    I like the post. I like the series well enough. And I’m looking forward to the “triple suicide while quoting Proust.” The emotions are the point of this show, for me.
