Winter 2018 Grab Bag Week 8: Mahoutsukai no Yome, Death March


I really want 3-gatsu to come back...

I'm travelling for work this week, so I apologize for only doing two shows again.

Mahoutsukai no Yome Episode 20

It's episodes like this one that make me really wonder how this series is going to end. Chise is already someone with a shortened lifespan and she seems to keep piling things on. At this point, it will take a miracle to keep her alive.

I gotta admit. This "wow" was funnier than I expected.

There's an interesting idea in this line. It's a common idea that people who commit suicide are acting selfishly by disregarding the people who care for them for personal solace. From Elias's perspective, you could make the argument that Chise does the same thing by taking the suffering of others on to herself. Given how little she values herself, she probably sees it as ultimately beneficial, but Elias doesn't see it the same way.

Death March Episode 7

I haven't talked with this series in a while because my opinion of it really hasn't changed. When I was reading the manga, I saw this series as pretty average, as it doesn't do anything special as an isekai show. However, the anime has been giving me more of a negative impression because I feel like it doesn't work well as an adaptation.

Nothing against Mia, of course. She's adorable.

I really don't understand why this series relies so much on photo montages to pass the time. I can understand having them occasionally, but this series feels like it's largely showing me a series of screenshots instead of a moving picture.
