Saturday’s Pile of Junk, Week 2: Grope for world peace

Let’s start with Dokyuu Hentai HxEros. It probably won’t surprise you at all to learn that this is yet another episode where the bad guys are defeated in a single punch. It’s also yet another episode where Ret and Kirara are caught in an embarrassing situation. The problem this week is that Kirara doesn’t want to join the “HxEros” team, because doing so is tantamount to admitting that she has dirty thoughts. Ret is asked to convince her, but he actually tells her it’s okay if she doesn’t join. He wouldn’t want to force her to confront her trauma. It’s a somewhat surprisingly earnest scene. At the end of the day, however, she still joins up with them and finds herself in typical ecchi scenarios, so whatever.

Look, I’ve been thinking, and my conclusion is that we’re looking at this all wrong. And by that, I mean both sides. The problem is that the bad guys keep targeting teenagers, and sure, that makes sense on a fundamental level. At that age, people are rife with sexual curiosity. As such, their “H energy” must be sky high. Still, it’d be a shame if you stole their libido, and this is why Ret and his team are fighting back. But look, there are horny people everywhere. And sometimes, those horny people are evil. I’m talking rapists and pedophiles. The bad guys need “H energy,” and bastards like Epstein and Catholic priests are full of them! It’s a win-win-win! Good, law-abiding citizens keep their libido, the bad guys get their precious energy, and the truly disgusting bad guys are basically neutered!


Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha Ep. 2

This week’s prologue explains what had happened 2,000 years ago. Sick of all the fighting, Anos offered to sacrifice his life in order to build walls between the warring races. Usually, you integrate the races in order to breed peace and understanding, but apparently, these racists just hated each other that much. As a result, the only option was literally “separate but equal” (lol).

As for the rest of the episode, well… you know the drill. People will keep disrespecting Anos, so he’ll just have to put them in their place. This time, however, we are introduced to Sasha Necron, Anos’s second waifu. Not only is she Misha’s sister, she hates the quiet, reserved girl for reasons that will be fully revealed later. For now, just know that Sasha doesn’t even consider Mischa to be human. And when Anos declares himself a team leader despite being a “hybrid mongrel” — seriously, if they have such a disdain for commoners, why even let them enroll at all? — Sasha challenges him to a team match.

There’s not much to say here about the actual match itself. Like in the first episode, nothing can make Anos sweat. He can literally pick up a castle with one hand, spin it like a top, and toss it over them mountains like Uncle Rico. When Sasha tries to use the ultimate fire magic, the reincarnated demon king counters with the weakest fire magic. Naturally, he overpowers her with ease. In the end, Sasha calls uncle and submits like we all predicted she would.

Still, I don’t really understand why everyone in this universe is so willfully blind. Anos is declared a misfit, because they think he’s the furthest thing possible from becoming the next Demon King. After all, it’s been 2,000 years, so the finer details are bound to have faded overtime. Hell, I wouldn’t even put it past certain individuals to twist history for their purposes. After all, Anos doesn’t care whether you’re a pureblood or not, but this tradition might have been put in place for nefarious reasons. But I digress. My point is that action obviously speaks louder than words. At first, you might think Anos is crazy, because he keeps calling himself the Demon King. He must be deluded, one might assume. But after seeing all these crazy feats — like, y’know, picking up a fucking castle — why are there still doubters? Why would the instructors, people tasked with identifying true potential within their students, not recognize greatness before their very eyes? Not once has anyone ever said, “Wow, um, I think this guy might be legit.” So yeah, this part kinda pulls me out of the story.

I still say that the show is only ever entertaining when Anos’s parents are onscreen.


I thought about blogging the latest episode of Fire Force, but after watching it, I found that I didn’t have any thoughts I felt like sharing. Whoops. I’ll still follow the show, but I’ll probably only write about it once in a while.

As for Oregairu, hmm… I’m going to wait for the second episode before I decide whether or not to commit.

Last and very least, I’ll save SAO for Sundays… I’ll probably drop it after a few weeks anyways.
