Okay, I wasn’t planning on saying anything about this series, but I enjoyed the first episode too much to stay quiet. The description of the show made it sound like it would be a simple fluff show showing the main girls surviving in Antarctica, but the episode itself delivered a lot more than that. The series has a promising sense of direction because there’s a goal moving the girls forward.
I absolutely loved how the comedy in this episode was presented, starting from the opening theme itself. I thought it was great how the girls in the background disappear as the main character, Mari, bites down only to come back up to ruin the illusion.
I can really relate to Mari’s fear of venturing out despite wanting to experience the world. My family’s pretty good about getting me out of the house, but I generally don’t travel much on my own even though there are places in the world I’d like to see.
The delivery of this scene is great too. Mari opens up the envelope to see a wad of cash. How much cash? Well, maybe we can use the background to give you a hint.
There was also something really funny about watching Megumi sniff other girls to search for the mystery girl.
I can’t argue with this. Shirase seems like a pretty fun character too, properly driven despite how others tease her. I’m looking forward to seeing how she affects Mari.
Even without words, this scene conveys its joke really well. It was pretty funny to watch. It almost makes me want to keep posting about this series, but we’ll see how this season progresses. Honestly, this series seems like a pretty strong start.
