Mekakucity Actors Episode 2: I would agree that’s a troublesome power

This week’s episode introduces the sister, Kisaragi Momo. This is the part where the supernatural starts to make its appearance, as Momo has the power to attract the attention of those around her. I assume this power is similar to being able to see the future in that it makes your accomplishments seem more trivial.

I didn’t get too far in the manga for this show, so I think I only know what happens up to the next episode. Next week is the recruitment episode where Momo finds more people like her. That being said, not much is known at that point what the direction of the show is and what exactly the meaning of these powers is.


Mekakucity Actors Episode 1 (First Impressions): This is why you always have a backup keyboard

I actually read the first couple of chapters of the manga for this series. The first episode only shows the focus of the shut-in main character Kisaragi Shintaro as he ventures outside to find a keyboard. I know that the show involves psychic powers to some extent, but that hasn’t been revealed yet in the anime. I’m actually curious whether Shintaro has any special powers of his own or whether his abilities are simply limited to Ene. Speaking of Ene, they adapted her to be just as annoying as I would have expected.

The ending song for this episode wasn’t bad. If I remember correctly, this show is originally based off of a set of music videos, though, so I would expect the music to be decent. I’ll probably pick this show up because psychic powers are for all the cool kids. Hopefully it ends up having some interesting direction plotwise and hopefully Ene doesn’t make me kill myself.
