Humanity Seriously Declined
Alas, another show that disappointed. I admit I stayed in high spirits all the way until the end. Then I realized I watched a whole series where nothing happened. Absolutely nothing. Zilch. Nada. It was a story about a girl and fairies and we really didn’t get much of the fairies. Not enough of them anyway. I wanted to know more of the story behind them and the Assistant? Very intriguing character that was fairly ignored, the Grandfather who liked to stroke his guns, merely an afterthought. Where did Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita go wrong?
The fairies were undeniably cute and creepy at the same time but I found that appealing. The main character, “Sweets”, had a dry wit and a high level of intelligence which betrayed her moe exterior. But we didn’t get enough of the fairies. What we got were strange situations that for as intelligent as “Sweets” was, you would have thought she would have figured things out quicker or at least played more of an active role. We rarely saw much interaction between the fairies, “Sweets”, and other humans. We know that her “Grandfather” had a high position but do we really know what he did? I was left feeling “What did I just watch?”, and it wasn’t in the good way that I had when I started with this show. I even defended the show on another blogger’s post and now I feel I must eat my words. In fact, I’m wondering if “Sweets” just imagined the whole thing and we were all victims of her whimsical fantasies. If you fully enjoyed this show, please share. If you didn’t, feel free to share your thoughts as well.
