Musaigen no Phantom World Episode 1 Thoughts: Tits Ruin The Limbo (And Better the Anime)

105

Musaigen no Phantom World is the token Kyoani show of the season you´ll either eat up or hate. Alternatively, it´s also the show that has given us the first meme of the year with boobs limbo and, in other words, is a big headache if you either haven´t paid attention in your philosophy class, forgotten it or haven´t had it yet alltogether. In more simpler terms, though, it´s pretty much Kyoukai no Kanata minus the suicide and some more of your typical Kyoani lowkey bittersweetness tropes that just never ever change.

In case you were a little confused by the intro of this post  – I liked this episode. No, really, I did. I mean, it wasn´t spectacular. Barely memorable. It was Kyoani, I like Kyoani, I liked this episode. In fact it´s so Kyoani you could write up a formula judged by their previous shows and pretty much guess where this is going – I bet Boob McBoob has a sad past. I bet the cutie was ostracized by her peers for being different. I bet the loner with the headphones is gonna blush a lot and give us some speech about how you don´t need anyone in life. I bet they´ll all find some kind of support in our dickless main character who has about as much charisma as a door.

It sucks, because I like most male Kyoani main characters. What´s his face from Amagi Brilliant Park gave me half the entertainment I got out of that show. The entire cast of Free! should go without saying. Oreki from Hyouka was fun. This guy… not so much.

If anything, this is the most light novelesque anime Kyoani has ever put their hands on; full of your typical skirtraising boobjiggling titfalling situations we´re sick of. I´m pretty sure the boobs on this woman had more love and care put in them than in the entirety of Prince of Stride.

So apart from the beginning which gave me war flashbacks to a philosophy exam I had just a few weeks ago, a premise that´s literally Kyoukai no Kanata and character designs that make me want to do a sidebyside comparison of previous Kyoani characters, this show was alright. It´s okay. It will probably be entertaining in this dry season of dusty, powerless boredom. Of course it will, it´s Kyoani.

For the rest I really have nothing more to add: This won´t change your mind about anything Kyoani. If you´re a fan of Kyoani you´ll like this. If you´re not you won´t. It´s that simple. They have their audience, this show will stick to that audience.

Seriously though, there were a lot of boob jiggles.
