Readers’ Pick: Moyashimon Returns – Episode 2Posted: August 5, 2012
Holy shit, I’m actually writing a new post? And it’s a Readers’ Pick one? Clearly, the end is nigh.
In all seriousness, I actually am sorry that I’m so behind on these. I didn’t want to make the same mistake I did with the Saki ones, but I did anyways. Damn I suck.
My plan is to release at least one of these a day starting today until I’m caught up. I was initially thinking one a day would be too much for my lazy ass, but seeing how little I have to say for this episode, it may be more easily accomplished than expected. In fact, seeing how short this post will probably be, I was planning to post another today. However, I may be writing up a post on a completely different topic instead. Who knows?
So a grand total of nothing happened this episode.
Well, actually, that’s not completely true. There was more talk about oils, alcohols, agriculture, and other various things that I don’t care about. Of course, this kind of stuff seems to be what makes Moyashimon… well, Moyashimon. I can’t really fault the show for that, since it’s due to my own mindset, but it makes me wonder if anyone actually watches the show for these science lessons. If any of you do, why? Aren’t you supposed to watch shows for entertainment? Unless you find learning to be entertaining, in which case
there’s something seriously wrong with you I envy you.
This scene was pretty funny though. Yeah, it was a normal “oh god lets go peep at women in the bath” kind of deal, but the sheer number of them and the weird bed sheet mask things they wore made it a shitload funnier than the standard variation.
Looking back on it, I also find it hilarious that the scene also advanced the sole shred of plot the show has. Though I am confused about the whole dungeon thing. Why did Hazuki suspect there of being some hidden dungeon in the first place? Was this something carrying over from the previous season? And why doesn’t Tadayasu just freaking tell her about being able to see microbes? Is it that big of a deal? Is this also something carrying over from the first season?
So many questions, so many episodes to go.
