If I Took A Shot… – Comic Girls

Jiggle, Jiggle Bounce is the name of episode three. Yeah, I just watched episode two (literally this second when I am writing this paragraph) but the end scene told me and now I am just really in doubt wether or not to continue this but, on to this weeks episode.

The girls go art shopping and pinky gets swept away by the huge wave of giant men at the train station. With the helping hand of blue she is saved and her little eyes twinkle as if she was in love. Over all are these girls in love with each other every other second. Blue is a very admirable girl (boy), who helps two middle schoolers chose pencils at the store. Once again, pinky is assumed to be younger than she is. This trope is getting very tiring. I don’t know how many times they mentioned in the first episode that she looked like a middle schooler and she had to point out that she is a high schooler. I thought we were past that but nope, here we go again.

Part two of the episode is about the girls going to school for  the first time after golden week. All’s well except blondie ends up in a different class than the rest of them. Oh yeah, blue and purple are the same age as pinky and blondie. No one saw that coming. Wow! Or, something. Pinky is having a nervous breakdown from the trillion curious questions she gets from her new class mates along with the fact that she brought the wrong pencil case. Poor little pinky.

That’s pretty much it. I’m annoyed. Blue is acting too much of a boy, which would be cool if they didn’t do a thing of it. I still think she could make a shoujo manga and not a shounen because that would twist things up a bit. It’s too stereotypical this way. It’s the “If you do a shounen you are per definition a boy” kind of crap because all mangakas who make that type of shounen are men. Pinky is, I swear to god, more annoying this episode with her stuttering, blushing, nervous behavior, bad self esteem and over all appearance. She ticks all the boxes I hate with girls in this genre and she is the epitome of why I normally don’t watch it.

Word of the day: Kawaii. If I would have one shot of vodka for every time they said that word in todays episode I would be so drunk. I would be more than drunk. I would be at the ER getting a gastric irrigation because of alcohol poisoning.

Anyway, next episodes title is making me a bit on edge and I am not sure I want to watch it. I already was skeptical after the first episode with the groping so yeah, I don’t know about this. We’ll see next week.

    1. I haven’t seen Bakuman but I have heard a lot about it and what I know I understand what you mean. Yeah, I would have liked something more serious. Ah well, one can’t have it all.

    1. Haha, yeah I’ll take the punch for you. I am so unsure if this. I really should sit it through to the end, just for the sake of it. But at the same time, it really isn’t my thing. I’ll give it one more episode.

    1. I still have my doubts but I am a little bit of a masochist and also, this is my challenge to myself to hand in there for 12 episodes. I have seen worse. BUT, there is always a possibility this gets scrapped after the next episode. That or I start to ridicule it totally.
