J.P.Meyer on SDS on Haganai

November 5th, 2011 by Author

I marked Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai as something to see at ANN back when the anime was only announced, but when it started airing, the blogging painted an unattractive picture of a second Ichizon. But I kept following it a bit, and I saw the post at Ogiue Maniax, comparing with the original manga. The only thing I carried out from reading it was that picture montages did not support SDS’ points strongly. However, I see that post being shared around now, and others read more into it. In particular, J.P. posted:

yeah, i had a similar complaint with the anime. it was like it was filled with hateable sex objects rather than awkward cute girls

Also! Twitter and Tumbler failed to kill animeblogging. Plus is making a good attempt now.

UPDATE: Now JP is getting serious (and explains the remark quoted above). Of course, the attention-getter was this:

I had watched the first two episodes (or technically, episodes 0 and 1) of Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai until I raegquit it due to a presence of eXXXtreme kimoi-sity.

TL: “Kimoi” is a slang that means “nasty”, basically, although I am not certain of its ethimology. {Update: JP tweets that it likely comes from “kimochi warui”. The only such word I knew before was “hagedou“, which means “[being in] violent agreement”.}
