What’s the show? Han-Gyaku-Sei Million Arthur, Episode 9.
So how’s this episode? So a group of adventurers walk by a tree and an idol falls out on top of one of them.
I haven’t heard this joke before… Oh this isn’t a joke, this is how the episode starts!
Err, okay then. So what’s this episode about then? It’s about an idol by the name of Kaguya who is being harassed by her self-entitled fans, up to and including one desperate fan who wants to kidnap her so she can be subject to his “experiments”.
Eek, that’s a bit dark! It’s funny, I’m finding an increasing number of anime painting fanatic idol fans with a very negative brush and I’m wondering if the overlap between anime otaku and idol otaku in Japan is relatively small. I mean it wouldn’t surprise me, one favours the flesh and blood over the animated so obviously there’s going to be a tangible difference of opinion but that’s a topic for another day…
Right, so anything else happen in this episode? Well it’s mostly focused on Tekken Arthur, which is fine because I actually like him and it was nice to see him have some quieter scenes with Kaguya the idol which showed a different side to his character. Also I really like Kaguya too, she’s very cute and her voice actress was wonderful I hope she comes back in Season 2 even if it’s just for a cameo. Also the song she ended up performing was very nice and professional sounding too, makes me wonder if she is/was a famous idol?
So overall thoughts on the episode? It was very good had some quality laughs (and a decent amount of fan-service–there’s a brief visit to a spa) and it was just plain entertaining throughout–sometimes things are pretty straightforward and there’s just not much else to say!
