Fall 2019 Grab Bag Week 6: Honzuki no Gekokujou

Honzuki no Gekokujou Episode 6

It feels so difficult to talk about this series because of how much I enjoyed reading the manga. I feel like I'm largely lamenting the animation quality when I watch this series, but I don't think it's particularly deficient otherwise. I like how the series portrays the comedy behind Main's thoughts as she struggles to make progress.

Otto introduces Benno

This episode largely focuses on introducing Benno, who is a fairly important character for quite a few episodes going forward. He teaches Lutz and Main a lot about trading in this world, and I tend to enjoy watching his business-like interactions with Main.

Lutz chooses to help Main

I also quite like Lutz's relationship with Main. He's always trying to support Main and make up for her weaknesses. It's sad to see his dream being shot down by Otto in this scene, but he bounces back well. Also, the episode basically using his career choice as a way to introduce more of the world.

Benno recognizes the disease

The episode ends on a more serious note. Scenes like this are what I appreciate about this series. Main has a strong personality, but the show always has that looming sense of tension behind it all.
