Inu to Hasami wa Tsukaiyou episode 05
You know, the only thing that I would really like to change about Inu to Hasami wa Tsukaiyou would be the drama. The way in which the characters fight is too childish, overly dramatic and I don’t think that it puts the characters in a good light.
I thought that things would get crazy for sure now that Madoka found Kirihime’s home. I could already tell that things were going to get freaky and that Kirihime would end up the winner, but did it really have to go down like this? Did Madoka really have to have a transforming tuna knife/sword/cannon? It was difficult enough with her mental instability and her desire to obtain that dog no matter what, but then that weapon of hers came along, followed by a sudden change of heart after Kirihime defeated her. What was the point? What was the author trying to make clear here? I don’t know.
Then Suzuna, Kirihime’s editor, shows up again and things get hectic again. You can always tell that things are going to get weird when that character is involved. Suddenly she was able to read Kazuhito’s mind as well, apparently she could do that from the very beginning. It seems that she was the one and only “slasher”, and that she only did it to get Kirihime to write again.
The sighing just doesn’t stop here… This episode was one big mess, really. They need to cut down on the comedy and start focussing more in romance. I know a relationship between Kirihime and Kazuhito will never be possible, but we can at least see them try to work it out somehow. That in itself should prove to be quite funny.
