Aoharu x Machinegun Episode 1 Thoughts

by AJ Adejare

  • I have some issues with Hotaru and his androgyny.  Like I get the fact that they’re going to make it into a major thing (as that’s one of the premises of the show) I felt the way they approached it was clumsy.  Breast jokes, and total ignoring of what the character is saying feels a bit lazy for what could be an interesting turn of events.
  • Speaking of Hotaru, her sense of justice is really strong, to the point of naivety.  I feel it’s going to get annoying quick unless handled appropriately.
  • Mattsun is interesting as a character so far, but I wonder how he’s going to develop.  Are they going to make him the bad boy with a heart of gold?  Will they aim more a more cutesy demeanor that has a deep side to him?
  • The fact that everyone pulled up glasses as well as Hotaru too, like HOW?

  • The strategy element, feels week.  While it makes sense to show how people are thinking, witty banter could easily make it better.
  • So, this is what happens when Ouran takes a detour to rural United States and intermingles with some Free style of cuteness.  Okay, let’s see how it rolls.
