Kamigami no Asobi Episode 3
I think it’s safe to say after this week’s episode (if not the last’s), that in order to watch this show, you literally have to cast aside whatever knowledge and shit you know about the mythologies, ignore the contradictions and be able to handle the incredibly exaggerated cheesy scenes. That itself is no easy task, and on top of that, it really didn’t help that I pretty much couldn’t stand this episode at all.
After Thoth tells her to get the Gods act together after walking out of class, Yui forms a plan to try and have the Gods experience the more enjoyable aspects of the high school life. She decides that they will take a trip to the beach, and with the help of Apollon and Baldr, they manage to have all the Gods attend the trip. However that trip was spoiled after Zeus decided to mess with them by changing up the season from summer to fall (how annoying- Zeus does what he wants, whenever he wants *rolls eyes). The Gods who didn’t give a crap about school and shit get annoyed and are bored, and demands to go return to their dorms, Yui then appoints Apollon as Student Council Preseident so that he would have certain ‘authority’ and then the two of them go and fetch some fireworks and everything is better. Yayyy… (¬_¬)ﾉ
Last week Apollon grew on me, but after this episode, it just took several steps back of how I feel about him. Sadly, he quickly got on my nerves. The best way to describe him is with a puppy, or a child with a curious mind. I did not like how clingy he was to Yui (like really, what the actual fuck- he was like “OH NOES YUI IS LOST!!!” when she’s not). It was not cute to me, instead it was annoying to watch. I simply can’t stand that kind of character. The only thing that didn’t bother me as much (though I did roll my eyes) was when he ‘confessed’ to Yui. It was obviously an innocent, pure expression as oppose to a romantic one. Had he been like, “OMG I LOVE YOU FOREVER BE MY LOVER!!!!” I would have flipped tables. In the mean time, the only character I truly adore right now is Hades because he is absolutely precious.
In the end, I think I am going to drop this one. It is not something I can see myself having a lot of fun blogging about, especially which how inaccurate and ridiculous this show is. The only positive aspect of Kamigami no Asobi is literally the very humor of the silliness of each of the characters and how overly dramatic they are under certain circumstances. It was funny to watch the Gods act stupid in class and interrupt the lessons as if they weren’t being taught in the first place. But when it comes to the more literal aspects such as who the characters are supposed to be, it is really difficult to overlook the inaccuracies. However I am willing to give this one more episode because of how iffy my mood has been the past few days, so we will see how it goes. If I don’t make an entry next week, that means I dropped the coverage for good.
