A diabetes-inducing interview.
This is my first journey through the “100 Days of Anime” Challenge, an ambitious project that I’ll be taking. For the full list of prompts, click here.
“Name an anime you wish never ended and continued on.”
Ignoring the awful implications of my opening line, “Interviews with Monster Girls” is the sweetest show I’ve ever watched.
Starring a cast of cute (and very humanlike) monstergirls straight from old folktales, the show puts a different spin onto how we percieve monsters from legend. Though it mainly follows our adorable cast through their daily lives, I was fascinated by the interaction and unique problems each of them faced: how they overcome it, and how the other students react to it. Though I came into the show expecting it to be full of “cute girls doing cute things,” I was pleasantly surprised when the show touched onto other topics, such as discrimination and special needs. They even go into the physics of a Dullahan’s anatomy.
All of which only got me more curious.
Everything about the show is cute, but I definitely see the potential for it to expand even further. I want to see how our demigirls will fare in their later years, acknowledging adversity while still being perky and lighthearted. What about Takahashi’s relationship with Saki?
And multiple seasons of Hikari-chan being Hikari-chan? Yes please!
