Twelve Days of Anime #09 – Bread Suicide


shot0875

Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita was never really my favourite series, I loved the way it explored notions of humanity, and even the incredibly forces of technology and culture, but as a series it never grabbed me. There were however many strange things that this series involved which fascinated me, from the constantly smiling fairies, to Watashi herself, the eternal cynic and only character who really knew what was going on. One of my residing memories of the series, other than Watashi and the fairies was however the wonderful animated bread that suddenly decided to commit suicide. The idea that this bread was given a personality to educate people seemed both bizarre, but perhaps quite sensible in a world where most of humanity seemed entirely ignorant about their surrounding landscape and society itself. It was this darkly comic moment that helped to shape part of my enjoyment of the series even if I was never fully grabbed by the concept or the characters. That such a moment, as shocking as it was could be funny helped to establish the importance of dark comedy in such series and its ability to demonstrate the absurdities or society, culture and indeed, life. shot0904 shot0907 shot0929

    But the question is: would you eat it?

    Animatronic, blood jam filled bread, relatives of “The Chicken From Outer Space” seeking vengeance for their fallen brethren, a yaoi manga resurgence plot to conquer the Earth, a sharp tongued cutie who criticizes everyone around her with snarky comment after snarky comment. And this is just the first half. Aren’t “Talk show” anime grand? this show, along with Joshiraku brought me great joy and mountain load of pointless dialogue for me to enjoy,

    Please don’t tell me the conversations had in both shows will benefit humanity in any way.
