What is this deja vu I’m feeling?
Friend: W-what is going on here?
Me: Does it really matter?
I kinda like the song too.
Look at that–she has a leash. She has a leash.
It’s not like it wasn’t clear from the synopsis that Seitokai no Ichizon was going to be terrible, but I was unprepared for the soullessness with which the show is executed. There’s no wit to the way the endless references to other shows are presented, they’re just thrown out there for otaku to gather and make of them what they will. There’s definitely no subtlety in the unending barrage of fanservice and jokes about H-games. And there’s no grace in the relentless torrent of moe from the president herself, it seems like every other scene is her falling over or being an idiot or wailing piteously. Seitokai is like watching a big, animated list of shows your time would be better spent watching.
Everyone, get ready to take notes.
