Kamisama Hajimemashita Ep 12: I AM 10000000000000% DONE WITH THIS ADAPTION

I’m not joking when I say that I’m 10000000000000% done with this adaption.

Impression:

Sorry for the delay, I was waiting for Anime-Koi Subs>=.
But I have to confess, when the subs did come out: I really, REALLY didn’t want to watch it because I saw and heard from my friends how BAD THIS EPISODE WAS. Ugh that icky feeling in my stomach, I don’t like thissssss /sobs stupid adaption is stupid.

THIS ME RIGHT NOW

Now lets get this damn rant started. Pardon me in advance for my CAPLOCKS spam and RAGE QUIT. I need to get this off my chest, and then I’ll get straight to the fucking critics.

WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY

WHY!?

WHY THE FUCK COULD THEY. NOT. FOLLOW. THE FUCKING. MATERIAL. PROPERLY.

I AM SEETHING. SEETHING I TELL YOU.
THEY MENTION KEY POINTS, THEY ARE GOING WITH THE DIRECTION OF THE SHRINE FESTIVAL- BUT /SOBS WHY DID THEY HAVE TO RUIN THIS? WHY?
WHY DID THEY HAVE TO MAKE NANAMI’S CHARACTER LIKE THIS? THIS ISN’T HER. THIS IS SO FUCKING O.C.

It’s so fucking upsetting. Tomoe wasn’t this soft, and why- watching this… Call me an overly emotional fangirl, but come on- this is horrible, absolutely horrendous, why are they doing this to us?! /SOBS I am actually at the verge of tears. This series does not deserve to be butchered like this! It has so much to offer! It isn’t fair! ;A; No series should ever have to go through a shitty ass adaption like this- or rather AT ALL. ;A;

Everything starting from 13:00 – is  OFFICIALLY MADE UP.
I REPEAT, MADE UP. THIS IS ANIME ORIGINAL, NOT MANGA MATERIAL.
NEXT THING.

NANAMI

IS

NOT

A

HELPLESS

DAMSEL

IN

DISTRESS

AND

NANAMI DOES NOT RUN AWAY.
NOT FOR TRIVIAL MATTERS LIKE THIS, EVER.

I AM SUPPOSE TO LOVE AND APPRECIATE THE SMALL PARTS THAT WERE INCLUDED IN THE MANGA THIS EPISODE, BUT I AM TOO UPSET, ANGRY AND SAD ABOUT WHAT THEY’VE DONE.

First of all: FUCK YOU WHOEVER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR BUTCHERING THE STORY AND CHARACTERS. NANAMI’S CHARACTER WAS PERFECT. IN THE MANGA SHE IS AN IDEAL HEROINE, BUT NO. YOU DECIDED TO MAKE HER FUCKING O.C. WHY? I DON’T HAVE A FUCKING CLUE, BUT IT PISSES ME OFF.

Second: WHAT THE FUCK IS WITH THIS SHIT, “OH I AM NOT NEEDED ANYMORE” BULLSHIT. THIS IS EXACTLY, PRECISELY, WHAT I FEARED THEY’D DO. NANAMI, HA, EVERYONE I WANT YOU TO LOOK AT THIS.

Kamisama Kiss Vol 5 Ch 28

This is a picture I’ve taken from my copy of Kamisama Kiss Vol 5 Ch 28

SEE THIS PAGE? THIS IS DURING THIS KAGURA DANCE/SHRINE FEST ARC.

THE SHRINE IS NANAMI’S PRECIOUS PLACE. IT’S HER HOME, SHE CARES ABOUT IT, SHE CARES ABOUT WHAT OTHERS THINK ABOUT IT, HENCE WHY SHE IS TRYING TO REVIVE IT AND ATTRACT WORSHIPERS AGAIN BY HOSTING A SHRINE FESTIVAL AND PREPARING TO PERFORM THE KAGURA DANCE!

I COULD COVER NEXT WEEK”S EPISODE, I COULD, BUT KNOW WHAT? NO. I AM NOT. INSTEAD I AM GOING TO GO STRAIGHT INTO THE OVERALL REVIEW- WHICH BY THE WAY IS ALREADY HALF COMPLETED AS WE SPEAK, AND THIS WAS BEFORE I LEARNED ABOUT HOW SHITTY THIS FUCKING EPISODE TURNING OUT.

ALSO WHAT THE FUCK IS WITH THAT FUCKING BOX?
OH, OH I GET IT.
IT’S GOING TO BE THE FUCKING _________ !!! (BLANK BECAUSE SPOILER)

EVERYONE. STOP.
DO ME A FAVOR: IMMEDIATELY- GO RIGHT NOW- READ THE MANGA. ::LINK::
BECAUSE THIS BULLSHIT IS PROBABLY GOING TO CREATE FUCKING SPOILERS THAT RUIN EVERYTHING (UNLESS IT’S GOING TO BE THAT FUCKING SPIDER WE SAW IN THE PREVIEW, BUT THAT’S NOT THE POINT).

As a fan I don’t appreciate anything that butchers the quality of a series. Kamisama Hajimemashita has more than enough material for them to follow through in chronicle order. God knows whys they decided to go with the re-arrangements and going as far as destroying Nanami’s character to the point people actually find her despicable, selfish, clingy and worst of all a helpless D.I.D. I also found that they ruined Tomoe’s character as well. They made him so corny and ughhhh. There was never any development within this adaption on Tomoe’s side of his romantic relationship with Nanami, so it makes me sick and beyond annoyed when I watched him being all soft on her this episode.

But at the same time from a new viewer’s stand point: it’s a no brainer that this adaption had a shitload of problems and should not be rated any higher than a overall score of probably a 4/10. Sure on the surface it may look like a “good adaption”, but it’s incredibly shallow and has no depth. Lets face it this adaption was a mess. There was no direction at all. The plot… what plot? There is no plot. Short Stories, yes, but actual plot- no – unless you consider the “romance” focus the plot. If you want plot, go and read the manga.

Honestly god after seeing how fucking shitty this episode was, I would much rather get straight to posting the Overall Review rather than cover next week’s finale. In fact, I held back posting the overall review right in this very post. Let me know if you’d prefer seeing the Overall Review next week rather than the final impression because I really could care less about covering the final episode. If you want me to cover it I will.

OKI’S HERE TO SAVE THE DAY!

Just kidding, the day can’t be saved. BUT I AM HERE.

Let me start by saying I love this manga like FUCK. Like. FUCK. I JUST. I DONT EVEN. ALL MY LOVE. But I read it after Eva, and as you know I covered Tonari no FUCK THAT kun. And yet my relief at not having to sit through this bullshit is….glorious.

Let me continue by saying, wow. You guys know how I feel about subpar reasoning behind relationships. THIS ADAPTATION FEELS LIKE

oh hay my name is NANAMI

I AM TOTES KAWAII

LOOK AT ME I AM SO KAWAII

I AM SADZ I HAS NO HOMES, LOOK, A MAGICAL SILVER HAIRED FOX GUY

TOMOE: I HAS NO INTEREST

TOMOE: WAIT *SCRIPT READING*

TOMOE: I DO NOW

NANAMI: I AM HEART OVER THIS

TOMOE: LOOK AT MY QUALITY FACE

NANAMI: U SO HANDSOME TOMOE. U SO HANDSOME

hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. If I could lock the director of this anime in a room with the mangaka of Tonari no FUCK IT kun, my problems would be magically solved. MAGICALLY. but this. I dont. I dont even. IT MAKES ME WANT TO THROW AWAY MY COPY OF FRUITS BASKET OUT OF DISDAIN FOR THIS DIRECTOR. I JUST. I DONT. I CANT. WHAT? WHAT?

Like, where the fuck is Mushu to declare dishonor on this fuckbags cow? This just took a manga that made me go ‘holy fuck. a believable and independent female main character and a male love interest who has believable reasons for being who he is yet falls in love with the protagonist against his better wills’ and made it into

NANAMI: BUT TOMOE, WE SHOULD BE TOGETHER

TOMOE: NOPE

NANAMI:  PLEASE

TOMOE: FOR NO CONCEIVABLE REASON, I SHALL AGREE TO THIS

If Eva doesn’t want to cover it next week I would be happy to tell all of you how awful it is. You know, because my dreams were already crushed by an over expensive college education and Phoenix Wright 5 not being out yet. You know, standard stuff.

And now for a flurry of cursewords!

WHAT THE FUCKING SHIT WHAT THAT ARE YOU KIDDING ME I CANT EVEN ARE YOU LIKE I DONT WHAT I HATE YOU I HATE YOU I HATE YOU FUCK THIS SHIT

    WHOA…Bird??? Err I think this is one of the reasons why I don’t like Anime-koi translations that much. I watched the Funimation subs, so it wasn’t a bird lol. Anyway, I do agree! I WANT TO CRY IN EXTREME ANGER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS ANIME IS NOT GIVING THE ORIGINAL THE JUSTICE IT DESERVES!!! IF THEY WANTED TO MAKE PEOPLE READ THE MANGA, THEY SHOULD MAKE THE ANIME GREATER THAN FREAKING THIS!!!!! LIKE SERIOUSLY!!! IT PAINS ME SO MUCH THAT I WANT TO GO TO JAPAN AND HIRE A HITMAN OR YAKUZA AND SLAUGHTER WHOEVER DID IT!!!! WHY DID THAT FURUBA DIRECTOR GO THIS WAY??? WHY CAN’T HE JUST STICK WITH THE MANGA WHILE MAKING SOME SLIGHT CHANGES DAMMIT!!!!

    TT__TT WAHHHH I am freaking pissed!!

    • Eva says:

      Did Funimation mention the branch then? XD Because that’s all what matters in that scene LMAO! I go with Anime-Koi because they use soft-subs. On top of that this was the one episode I was not willing to DL two different subs for. It wasn’t worth it. But then again, this episode was not worth waiting for soft-subs either.

      *HUGZ HUGZ HUGZ* IKR? I had hope, lost that hope, preview made me optimistic again last week and then BOOM, the whole adaption crashed and exploded into smithereens.

      • Mai says:

        I see. Yeah, Funimation mentioned that the branch was hanging on the torii ^^…OH GOD, HOW WILL THEY EVER MAKE NANAMI REALIZE THAT PART??????? Sigh. I hate it.

        YEAH! * HUGSS* I WAS EXPECTING THEY WOULD GET IT RIGHT. I MEAN THEY HAD THE MINOR STORIES RIGHT, SO WHY NOT THIS ENDING?? BUT NO. THEY JUST WOULDN’T GIVE US A VERY GOOD CHRISTMAS GIFT. IDK ANYMORE. I DON’T KNOW IF I’LL STILL WATCH THE ENDING WHEN IT MIGHT JUST RUIN MY CHRISTMAS.

        I WOULD WAIT FOR THE MANGA AND IGNORE THIS. NEXT YEAR WOULD BE LIKE NOTHING, NO ANIME, HAPPENED.

        • Eva says:

          *HUGS KAMISAMA MANGA VOLUMES*THE ANIME DOESN’T EXIST. NEVER HAPPENED. ONLY MAGICAL GIFS APPEARED!!!!
          I don’t even know if I want to watch the ending either. I probably will, but Oki will be covering the episode in my stead while I simply post the Overall Review. She’ll give it the shit it deserves.

          I don’t know how ANYONE would want a second season of this crap. I would only be a bit more optimistic if they change the staff involved with this one, precisely the director and screenwriter.

          • Mai says:

            EXACTLY. I COULD STOMACH ANOTHER SEASON IF THE DIRECTOR OR SCREENWRITER WOULD CHANGE. Yes, the director had quite an experience, BUT THERE ARE MORE TALENTED DIRECTORS WHO COULD ADAPT THE MANGA VERY WELL!!! I MEAN, WHY CAN’T THIS ANIME HAVE A DIRECTOR and SCREENWRITER LIKE THAT IN KIMI NI TODOKE?? THEY FOLLOWED THE MANGA WELL, AND I EVEN DON’T LIKE THAT MANGA THAT MUCH. YET THEY FOLLOWED IT VERY WELL!

            I ENDURED THE UPS AND DOWNS OF THE ART, BUT REALLY, THIS EP WAS THE LAST STRAW. I will forever have an amnesia to anything regarding KH anime. If there’s a second season, I would be happy if another talented director and screenwriter who can really live up to the greatness of the manga would be there.

            I love gifs, but yeah, they just appeared!!! >.<

          • Eva says:

            Pretty much the only good thing that happened thanks to the “adaption-that-does-not-exist” is the fact we’re able to get merchandise. I am anxiously waiting to see whether they will release plushies or not.
