Mitsudomoe #10 — Confessions of a Pervert

September 5th, 2010

 

What is with Japan’s obsession with suppositories anyway?

Impressions:

A pretty decent episode, although a lot of the ending punchlines were pretty obvious, leaving the segments feeling a little bit underwhelming. It was another Sugisaki-heavy episode too, which feels like a bit of a waste since, again, she’s basically identical to Mitsuba. At least they slightly mixed up the Gachi Ranger formula a little bit this week by having someone jump to a conclusion that wasn’t "Super Dynamic Kick = Sexual position." It’s not much, but I’ll take it. I was worried for a moment that they were just going to have Mitsuba wear it around and then devolve into yet another generic Gachi Ranger bit of stupidity. It stopped being funny about five episodes ago.

Part 1 was yet another Gachi Ranger misunderstanding related to Sugisaki’s brother. I can understand a little kid maybe getting excited about some toy belt, but that someone’s wearing the same kind of shirt? Even for these forced segments, that was pushing it past forced and into squeezing blood from a stone territory. Part 2 directly followed on it and was about four minutes of ‘pervert’ jokes, with Mitsuba dancing around the meaning of the word. And then it’s back to Gachi Rangers and Mitsuba assuming Hitoha’s belt was a diet belt and breaking it because she’s a fatso for part 3. Lastly, Mitsuba gets sick and the girls stop by to try to put things in her butt. Go Japanese medicine.

    The sub translated “pervert” to “nympho”.

    Aroduc says:

    That’s a bit wrong. Particularly because Japanese has a word for nymphomaniac (好き者). I could see going with slut (which still isn’t quite right), but… eh.

  • Mesousa says:

    Well, using “pervert” is pretty much overused and flat.

  • Hexmage says:

    I loved how Futaba had her stupid-happy expression when Mitsuba was being mean to those kids.
