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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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)
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: 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
