I’ve never been one for long cohesive thoughts forming detailed engaging paragraphs so here it is. The first in a new set of posts that are short sweet and to the point but also aid in my interactions with you guys and girls hopefully. Three things I like about this anime and I’ve got to be quick and to the point but also make sure not to squander my topics of interested on lame concepts.
So bam! here it is
The episode three (Spoiler) death. So Hampnie dies right off the bat. Three episodes in they kill off a main character who is also immortal and with his death the doors open for so much more then I was first expecting as it brings light onto the minor characters and give Ai a shovel full of character, pun intended. It’s subtle but it’s obvious that she’s proud of her heritage and especially her family name as she drops it any chance she can get. As far as character development goes this was the first step to pulling her away from the “oh she’s a cute little girl” character she’s set up to be. It’s not complex but it’s certainly better then expected.
Death loses meaning. In this anime everyone has two lives and when you die for the first time nothing bad comes of it if you have knowledge of what to do. So I like the question being raised of why does anyone dear death?
What happens in 100 years? If Hampnie (Poor naming choice) didn’t die he’d be the only one left. The ghost girl might be too but it would be a very lonely life and it’s even possible that God would return seeing as he’d have bugger all to do with a handful of people left.
So there it is? Bounce a discussion off that or tell me what you like about Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi.
