Mitsuganae Again!? Well… Okay. Just succeed this time ok?
If anyone remembers the low point that was Mitsuganae for the Jigoku Shoujo Series, then you recall that in season 3, Ai tried to basically make one girl’s life miserable per the Lord of Hell’s instructions to make a new Jigoku Shoujo so Ai could be released from her role. They almost made it happen and at the last minute Ai changed her mind. So… season 4 and the mysterious Michiru reveals herself.
Essentially killed in a very cruel way just like Ai was, Michiru also took vengeance out on the entire village that wronged her. Since she did that, apparently she has been forced to wander the Earth. After swearing up and down that her response would never chance even if she learned of her past, she does and Ai reveals that the only way to make up for what Michiru did is to become Jigoku Shoujo.
So here we are again with this plotline. Now I am not sure if the Lord of Hell is in on this or not, as the story is not really talking about hell much this time, but it would be nice to know what makes Michiru so the prime candidate to become Jigoku Shoujo. I have a feeling like either Ai is up to something or this is how they are going to try and end the series OR Ai is going to leave and get her reprieve (she has been at this gig for like 400-500 years) and Michiru will take over moving the series in a new direction. We might even get more!
Sex Education Practice?!
My anime hot pick of the week is Koi to Uso’s episode 6 when Ririna and Nejima take sex ed. Now, I know I picked Koi to Uso last week but I just had to talk about this week’s moment. First of all, to my understanding, sex ed is a joke or something you ignore in Asia. It’s just not serious. And not once in any anime have I seen them actually take sex ed (outside of a sexy big boobed girl who might offer lessons). And now, in Koi to Uso, Ririna and Nejima take a sex ed class or really a “relationship” class where they are taught the overall progression of a relationship leads to sex. And while I say yes, it does, the video progresses onto a sex scene that I assume was supposed to get everyone all riled up! If that was the intention, they succeeded!
And to think that the government forces the couples into separate rooms where they are expected to “spend the night”. I get that this whole Yukari thing (that’s what it’s called, right?) is supposed to increase the birth rate but then I think to how all the students were provided condoms. I’m fairly certain condoms don’t increase the birth rate (unless you mean “accidental” births). I get that you don’t want them to get pregnant as students but you shouldn’t force them to have sex. Awkward. Koi to Uso just keeps on getting stranger and more controversial I suppose. It definitely stands out.
Three's company, but you may have fun?
When you are in front of a somewhat dramatic situation, you may wish it turns out well… or not, because sometimes we just want to see it all go to hell, right? In episode 5, we had some drama, but now in episode 6 it’s all about sex. Yeah, Fujiwara is a total jerk, but I’m sure a lot of men would do the same in his situation, trying to make every man’s fantasy come true. If you are kind of lost here, let’s say Netsuzou TRap is about two girl friends… with benefits, Hotaru and Yuma, and Fujiwara is Hotaru’s boyfriend. When he finds out his girlfriend is cheating on him, and with another girl, kinky ideas arrive like butterflies! Okay, this story is far more complicated than that, but let’s just keep it as this; and yes, you may joke with this threesome thing, but last week’s episode was not a joke!
Having broken her boyfriend’s heart, Yuma is now free to give into true jealousy and go after Hotaru, and as this little girl is no saint because she doesn’t let this opportunity pass. An accomplice look leads to kissing, and kissing leads to touching, and touching always leads to sex… but when the girls are feeling comfortable with each other —and Yuma is accepting this whole situation… FLASH!! There’s Fujiwara taking pictures and asking to join the action. Can you really blame him? Like I said, we’re supposed to think he’s the mean one, but the flesh is weak, they say. Too bad this anime’s episodes are about 10 minutes long, because we can totally dig a special OVA or something. In the end, Yuma’s boyfriend, the only decent character here, is the one left out of the (potential) party. Our thoughts are with you, Takeda-kun.
And that is it for this first week of summer! Thank you for staying with us until the end. What did you think? Did you see any of the hot moments that are discussed here? Be sure to let us know below!!
