Summer 2018 Grab Bag Week 10: Frankenstein Family


With the second episode, the series seems to have gone back into slice of life mode. It's not necessarily bad, as I like watching shows like that anyway. I do think that there's a unique dark undertone that this series could have, so I kind of want to see that, but we'll have to see where things go. It's still too early to fully judge.

Not sure what's going on with this girl. I totally expected her to be a classmate, but Tanisu didn't seem to know her. I guess this is just a casual introduction for a side character?

The fact that Tanisu's actually a genius is pretty interesting. I guess his parents didn't experiment on him because they wanted him to succeed them or something. I think it would be cool if that was something Tanisu had to grapple with in this series, since he wants his family to be normal. I think it's fine that his scientific curiosity is tied into his tendency to get lost, but you'd think he'd be smart enough to remember his way out.

I'm sure there's some symbolism going on with the spider hovering over the family here, but it feels too vague for me to really get it.

I approve of these disguises. Still, I kind of want to see what the mystery medicine does. Presumably, it suppresses the family's side traits, but the series never directly says it. I thought they had taken the medicine last week, but it really doesn't seem to be the case.
