Let’s get another update on the shows I haven’t been covering on this blog.
Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru. Zoku
This show’s awkward for me. Since it usually gets released late on Thursday or early on Friday, I have a hard time posting about it because I don’t usually have time to watch the episode and I don’t like the saying things without current information. I think that Hachiman in this series is a pretty interesting character. In my opinion, he’s a display of how deceptive altruism is. From the outside, it somewhat looks like he’s the kind of guy willing to help people from the shadows, willing to trash people’s opinions of him to minimize social gain. But it eventually comes across as a somewhat selfish defense mechanism to avoid building the relationships he finds painful.
There really wasn’t too much music-related content in this new episode…just a lot of relationship building. I’m starting to feel like my analysis is pointless.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m still worried about how this show will turn out, but I really do like that they’ve established the Takeo-Yamato relationship and that they’re switching to the Takeo-Sunakawa relationship. I personally think it’s a much better relationship. But are they planning on just introducing more characters and subsequently focusing on those characters?
