誠氏ね！Makoto, shine! Die, Makoto!
Scheisen! Scheisee! Mierda! Ay caray! Aiya! What a scheisee anime! What a shame! Amagami Schutzstaffel (SS)? This is very horrendous. It is terribly even worse than vulture’s puke and hyena’s rotten feces. It’s too much!
The title is named Morishima Haruka Chapter, and I think they will spend few episodes for one chapter. Darn, I think they will air each chapter for each girl the main character is trying to date. It’s very dating sim oriented.
This dude, Tachibana Junichi, a 17 years old junior student in high school, I mean I thought he was really a hikikomori at first, because he literally sleeps in Oshi-ire (closet). He was totally like me since I used to sleep in the closet in my adolescent years too. I thought only Doraemon would sleep in Oshi-ire in 2-D, but this protagonist, Tachibana Junichi, also sleeps in Oshi-ire. Very pathological setting, but he’s not that sick. Way better than Takumi from Chaos;Head, who lived in a shipping container. Junichi’s not a hikikomori like I was/am. He has no problem going to school and has friends he can hang out, and plus he isn’t shunned by girls. Girls seem to take pleasure talking to him and poking fun on him. He’s quite popular among girls although he’s not an alpha male. Reversed Hakuouki! Ahhh, I wish I could have that interaction with girls in my high school years, so I would never have moved to the states.
I mean this guy had a girlfriend. Urayamashii… Moreover, he was well accepted and fit in. He wasn’t an outcast like me. Because his ex ditched him on Christmas two years ago, he got depressed and since then he hates Christmas. Yeah, I remember that pressure from the mainstream media in Japan; if you don’t have a girl to spend Christmas together, you’re a loser. Japan was so weird. What kind of Christmas was that? I celebrate real Christmas, which is Christ’s birthday! Not the day to have sex with a 3-D girl! That was just garbage the media was spewing and jamming down our throat. Just ignore the scheissen media!
Anyway, I went emotionally unstable when I saw Ayatsuji Tsukasa suddenly looked back and smiled at him in HR class. Her smile caught him by surprise. Me too! My heart jumped also. Doki! I was like, “WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON!” Ayatsuji-san is Junichi’s classmate. She is a class president, and also volunteers for a School Founding Anniversary Festival committee member. She is beautiful and has leadership. Probably very bright. She is in the 2-A class, not like BakaTesu, the 2-F class.
And of course, he gets to talk with Morishima Haruka, the school idol that every male student fantasizes. The heroine of this chapter. That distinctive Tate-roll hair. She is a senior student, and very free-spirited. OMG, very skinship-oriented too, my ideal! Lack of skinship with girls was the main reason I came to dislike the Japanese culture all together. If I could have met a girl like Morishima senpai, I would have never gotten out of Japan. And with too well-planned deus ex machina coincidences, she starts to have skinship with Junichi. I was like, “What the fuck is going on here!!!” And that too dramatic orchestrated BGM, and special effects like bubbles with pink background! Too much!!!
Moreover, Junichi has a little sister. She is very Onii-chan-ko (big brother loving girl). In other words, bura-kon, or brother complex. She calls Junichi “Nii-nii (brother-brother)” like “Nyan nyan (girl-girl)” of Ranka Lee. So, she gets really jealous and upset at Junichi especially when he goes head over heals for Morishima-senpai. You know she reminds me of Karen Carpenter. She was also a very famous Onii-chan-ko. She was extremely jealous whenever Richard Carpenter was going out with girls. This is a strike for imouto-moe (little sister moe) guy. The younger sisiter moe!
I’m a Onee-san moe or Ane-moe (big sister moe), so his little sister doesn’t make me moe. Of course, Morishima is kinda Onee-san, yes, a senior student in high school, so she is a senpai. She reminds me of Mao-neechan from Kimikiss, and Anegasaki Nene from Love Plus. I don’t know why onee-chan or senpai has big oppai. Why is that? Does bigger oppai symbolize more nurture side of femininity? Is that a result of バストアップ体操 (Bust-up taisou=boob enhancement exercise)? Prone to take care of younger boys in general? Yeah, the senpai wants to have skinship with a younger boy. Especially in a form of horseback riding! Ultimate skinship! Equestrianism, banzai!
Speaking of equestrianism, La Dolce Vita (1960) was an epitome of machismo, a dude riding on girl’s back. But, La Matriarca (1968) is an embodiment of femininity, a girl riding on dude’s back. And Morishima-senpai is the embodiment of the Onee-san, riding on younger boy’s back! Morishima-senpai is God sent. I screamed like crazy. From Italy, this Copernican turning point started with La Matriarca during the late 60s, when May Revolution was taking place in Europe, coincided with women liberation movement, and has completed in Japan with Amagami SS in 2010. Took almost a half of the century! We’ve come a long way!
AHHH, why is it going so smooth for Junichi? I mean too smooth. Morishima-senpai is really into him. She’s making the move! Clearly, this doesn’t happen in reality, I mean 3-D. No girl has ever asked me out. Instead they have treated me like garbage. That’s why the 3-D world is too cruel and cold. I know enough of 3-D cruelty. That’s why I’m scopophobic and agoraphobic. I can’t be among a huge crowd. It wears out my nerve. I rather have my own cocoon and immerse myself in the 2-D world. A cocoon of Haibane Renmei would be my alternative. 3-D is deadly cold.
If only this could happen in reality… I wouldn’t have any grudge toward anybody or any society that is constantly lying to us. I wouldn’t have been a cynical pessimist.
Conclusion: Otaku in the Mirror
Do you know why I hate this anime? Why I think this anime is horrendous? Because it truly reflects my dark side, chaotically churning subconsciousness. My deeply seated shame that I don’t want anybody to pinpoint. An Otaku’s lamentation , “I never had any chance to have skinship with girls, so I never had any single good moment as an adult male. What a miserable life… If I could, I really want to become 17 years old again to relive my high school life and have fun with girls.” And this anime really reflects that lamentation. My life should have been like this anime. It’s the reflection of me. Yes, the mirror.
Yeah, I’m agoraphobic, and at the same time scopophobic like Morino from Ms. Okami & Her 7 Friends. But at the same time, I also have a fear of the mirror, completely opposite from narcissists like that Queen from Snow White & The 7 Dwarfs. If you’re satisfied with 3-D (reality), you can look at the mirror, but if you’re alienated from 3-D like me, you can’t even face the mirror but can only watch the computer or TV screen. I’m afraid to look at myself in the mirror every morning. How do you say “mirror” in Greek? Eisoptro? Therefore, I have eisoptrophobia. So, I’m eisoptrophobic. I hate this anime since it invokes my eisoptrophobia. Thus, f@ck this anime!
