「犬神さんと猫山さん」 (Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san)
“Inugami-san and Nekoyama-san”
Even though I have no intentions of picking up this show, let me say a few things about it c:
First off, I completely forgot that this was a short anime. I totally missed the timestamp when I hit play and I remember getting thrown off with how abrupt the cuts were. Once I realized what was going on, I noticed that I wasn’t really enjoying the show at all. Trust me, I can find enjoyment in just about anything anime and when there’s cats and dogs involved there has to be something really wrong to turn me off.
I’ve become pretty familiar with these short-length anime episodes and something was really off about this one. Unless there was some prequel material that I needed to watch, I didn’t enjoy how the episode threw us straight into the thick of things with barely any explanations. Besides “Inugami-san is like a cat even though her name has “Inu” in it and Nekoyama-san is like a dog even though her name has “Neko” in it” I’m still not sure what I watched.
I hate feeling like this because I think I could love a show like this if it wasn’t a mere three minutes and thirty seconds long. Even though I loved the dirty humor that was flowing through Inugami’s head and thought that the random lick on the face was actually kind of cute, I still can’t get over how abrupt the cuts between skits feel. And boy, does it feel abrupt.
While I may not be covering the show, I am definitely going to keep watching. It may just be a premonition, but I have this odd feeling that the dynamic relationship between Inugami and Nekoyama is going to be fun to watch. Anyways, if you haven’t already watched it I’d say give it a shot. It’s less than five minutes and who in the world doesn’t have a spare five minutes?
