「ペテン師系婚活女子」 (Petenshikei Konkatsu Joshi)
“The Con Artist Marriage Girl”
Well, I’m not sure what I expected after last time, but this? Now this I approve of. While Sentouin has largely thrown story to the wolves in favour of weekly shenanigans and science gone
right wrong, it’s definitely the right sort of sacrifice. All Sentouin needs is for its stars to align and its banter to get going to make its presence felt, and this week was no exception.
Considering Sentouin’s initial setup I find it quite funny how it’s taken until now for Alice and Six to actually try and investigate their new world. All the magic, curses, fantasy races, and other nondescript anomalies floating about? Apparently unimportant and not worth the hassle thinking on until boredom and a need for excuses kicks in. Although such thinking proved its worth in gold. Comedy gold. Personal Pancakes prioritization of chimaera cuteness or not (Rose is good girl, fight me), Grimm’s struggle to prove the validity of her powers against Alice’s brutal rationality was hilariously on point, and only made better by the poor demon girl caught up in the process. The thing which puts the cherry on top though? Knowing said demon girl came from a piece of preserved meat. There’s a reason this spat didn’t end with definitive metaphysical answers after all – just imagine what the next sacrifice will yield.
Not to be outdone either are the likes of Six and Snow who are definitely a better match than they may think. Besides Snow repeatedly justifying her dunce cap (oh how I love she grabbed a flame sword to make up for the previous ice sword’s weakness – only for it to fail against a normal sword), now we have Six’s soft side going full out and wearing off on others at all the right times. Or the wrong times, I guess it depends on perspective. How this poor guy is going to build back up those Evil Points when such conflicting emotions are crossing the mind is anyone’s guess, but I don’t foresee too much trouble given that truce with the ever abusable Heine only lasts a month (and we’ve already had a partial timeskip as lolicon Tigerman’s presence proves).
Remember, the legend of Zipperman lives on, and there’s plenty of people left who have yet to make his acquaintance.
