I love this picture. It’s just after the magical girl walked away, came back to kick the guy in the balls a bit, then walk off for real this time. All the guys stand their cupping their crotch in unified pain. Whenever you’re playing sportball and one player gets whacked in the gentleman’s area, every player immediately stops and is temporarily joined in thought as each one shares a tiny part of that one man’s pain. Meanwhile the woman in the picture is crossing her arms with a satisfied smirk across her face. Misandry I tell you! Heh, my spell check puts a red squiggly line under misandry
(Just in case it’s not clear because irony is never quite clear on the internet, any instance I use the word misandry is as a punchline. If you ever use the word in a non-ironic context, I would kindly ask you to stop. You know how when you see a weeaboo screech about how kawaii something is and you feel second-hand embarrassment at even being associated with that kind of anime fan? That’s how I feel as a man about other Men’s Right’s Activists. “You are a SLAVE to the MATRIARCHY” oh gawd you are so fucking embarrassing that you make me want to chop off my own dick so I don’t have to be associated with you).
Samurai Flamenco being more and more like Kick-Ass to the point that it’s getting a little awkward. It’s awkward because I have to try justify why I like Samurai Flamenco so much while absolutely hate Kick-Ass. Something to do with it having much greater attention to detail and a sense of humour not associated with what teenage male losers think constitutes edge humour? Anyway, this episode introduced a magical girl with a taser, stun gun and pepper spray wand and a rather unusual looking cleavage. I don’t think boobs quite work like that. What’s holding them in place? Considering all the jumping about she does, I’m surprised one of them doesn’t just pop out of that heart-shaped cleavage window.
It is interesting to see that she’s a magical girl rather than a lady superhero. Then again, magical girls are basically superheroes. Someone more steeped in magical girl lore will have to back me up on this, but from my knowledge Sailor Moon kinda turned magical girls into straight up sentai heroes who fight crime and giant monsters. Before that they had magical powers which they used for everyday life, Sabrina the Teenage Witch style. But girls didn’t just want to be idols and get boyfriends, instead wanting to beat up bad guys and kick men repeatedly in the bollocks. While maybe also being idols who randomly smooch their band members.
It’s OK, she’s got Italian blood in her. That’s just what Italian’s do. I’ve been to Italy a few times and it was full of Italian women kissing each other on the stree-oh wait sorry I mixed up Italy with my dreams again.
I did call the idol girl falling for one of the guys, but I was expecting that guy to be Samurai Flamenco himself. Not the sexy non-single policeman in his stripper uniform. We still haven’t seen that girlfriend of his. We got some texts from a very understanding person in a mature relationship, but we all know mature relationships don’t exist in anime. Anime fans won’t allow it. The most mature relationship is the one where the lady gets pregnant when they hold hands. Using this logic we can extrapolate that he’s merely texting himself and this girlfriend doesn’t exist. Only the idol is in the way of our gay pairing, and using the above picture as my witness we can simply pair her off with the other idols. Hmmm, actually my pairings are starting to get a little too one-sided in the homosexual department, so to restore some balance I will also pair off the manager with the slightly creepy journalist.
This is how shipping works, right? Sorry, I’m inexperienced at this core facet of fandom.
