Oto. Someone put effort into this scene. Kotori’s face for the couple of frames where she just doesn’t want to deal with Nico throwing a fit perfectly conveys what she is feeling in that moment. Just wanted to point that out. I like it.
Pon. She looks like she’s about to throw the sewing machine.
Oto. I wish they had stuck with the metal theme. I’m just gonna get this out there. I kinda like Babymetal. Well, the couple of songs that merge the metal and idol sounds well.
Pon. Yeah, wouldn’t that be a good idol show? Where they have this aesthetic that’s important to them, and they try to keep it in the face of corporate and fandom homogenization? That’d be more interesting. A lot more interesting than “be yourself!” Let me just note that I hate the plot of this episode wherever it shows up, regardless of the show or the characters involved. Because, one, what did they accomplish here? They’re back where they started. And, two, they’re fucking kids, so they’re just gonna doubt themselves again in a week anyway. You know what I do like, though?
Oto. What do you like?
Pon. I like when characters laugh or something, and it’s like two frames of animation, and they’re just jiggling.
That’s fucking funny.
