Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru – 10

「穴ツッコミじいさん」 (Ana Tsukkomi Jiisan)
“The Finger-Pointing Geriatric”

I never thought Sore Machi could get weirder. Apparently, I thought wrong. From Aliens to Ghosts this episode dives headfirst into some strange topics. I should have seen this coming – especially since there was a real time traveler last episode.

「全自動楽団」 (Senjidou Gakudan)
“Full-auto Orchestra”

I think I’ve created the perfect formula for having a great slice of life. It needs to have a character who everyone LOVES, some sort of concert involving instruments being played, and some kind of pantsu shot (being tasteful wins bonus points). Sounds like Sore Machi to me!

「愛のナイトウ避行」 (Ai no Nai Touhikou)
“Loveless Elopement”

So when they say “Slice of Life”, I suppose you can take it as literally cutting a slice out of your life and animating it. What’s cool is that since we are all different people, all of our experiences are different – and what makes slice of life so great is that anyone can take that slice of whatever they’re showing and almost feel like they could be a part of that, even if that person has never experienced it.

「呪いの方程式」 (Noroi no Houtei Shiki)
“Cursed Formula”

Mr. Moriaka, you have such a strange sense of humor. I understand that you really don’t like Hotori. I understand that she is fundamentally the only reason why you can no longer enjoy life. But the point to which you stress over her failing your quizzes and exams is just plain overkill. It’s making your hair fall out for god sake!

「猫省年」 (Neko Shounen)

Continuing on from last week, this whole “student & teacher” relationship thing started to feel a little overplayed (except I love hearing Sugita Tomokazu, so I don’t mind). At least, that’s what I thought until a stark (but hilarious) reality check comes tumbling in and destroys all of Hotori’s teacher loving affection. What would you expect a teacher to say if you asked them, “Did you happen to fall for me?” Yeah, I didn’t think of anything positive either. Plus, new character this week!
