In a moment, you may peruse your kitchen and choose from some lovely duty-free snacks you’d have purchased prior to the show.
Tim starts us off with Youkai Shoujo. We start with a main character who can see ghosts because he once almost died. That’s new, we’re sure of it. This also means he can see youkai and gets dragged into battling with them. It has a few moments of humor and breaks some of the tropes associated with seeing the dead and battling demons. It gets into Crackers territory.
Weltall then reviews Bijin Onna Joushi Takizawa-san. It’s a collection of short comics that is focused entirely on an office obsessed with noticing and staring at the large breasts of a lady manager. That’s it. The kind of running gag that gets worn out within a half season of a sitcom is the premise for a comic. We’re pretty sure this is the kind of material Kevorkian handed out to families of those who wanted to die so they’d understand why they longed for death. Burn It.
