Time for another episode of InuHasa. As expected, there’s that weird stuff. And then there’s some minor development on the side.
Nine Story Tower Writing Contest
It’s time to d-d-d-duel!
Basically the three best-selling authors come together for a flabbergasting duel of absurd proportions. There’s this giant nine story demon head building thingy. And the authors have to go toe-to-toe at the top in a hellish battlefield of paper and ink. Once each completes nine short stories, the works are handed down to the nine mystery judges who may or may not be human if their silhouettes are any indication. I don’t think they even explained what conditions must be met for a victor to be declared, but I guess it’s something along the lines of whoever has the majority favor from the judges. Anyway, plenty of hot air is passed around and before the match can get underway the challenger Maxi gets carried away as per her usual gag. And just as suddenly as the contest was introduced, it dissipates.
It is delicious curry. You must eat it.
Now that we’ve discussed the “lol I’m so high right now” segement, we can get on with stuff that makes more sense. There’s a little tidbit where we see Maxi’s slaves men in black buy all of Kirihime and third magical author Himehagi Momiji’s works in an attempt to keep them from the public. That’s dirty cheatin’ foul play for sure, but it doesn’t make much of a difference to me since I already don’t like Maxi that much. Next there’s suicide underhanded fake author Hami trying to tell Sakura something about becoming a real author or whatnot. But as usual she’s unable to get the words out and resorts to plunging a pen into her neck. Finally, there’s a focus on yandere imouto Madoka again as she returns to feed Kazuhito raw deep space eldritch curry from another dimension: she’s still making curry with a tuna eating chainsaw electric bazooka type zero thing, and just as bad at it as always. What else is new? Oh, she’s also gotten into Kazuhito’s high school. That’s what’s new. But that’s probably about as important as the rest of this paragraph. Which is to say not very.
Just fulfilling my screen-time quota for the entire show.
And then we get something actually potentially important. At long last we meet the final leg of the super-duper novel writing three musketeers up close and personal. Yes, she’s that one mystery master of that one brutish zapping cleaning broom-wielding musical maid. Turns out Himehagi Momiji is a gloomy fellow who enjoys spouting profound-sounding lines while sitting in her wheelchair by a cliff of crashing waves with seagulls hungrily circling overhead. Will she ever confront her rival power rangers? Who knows. I have a feeling it’ll never happen though, because next episode is the finale and instead of any more real development we’ll probably get some more “haha what the heck am I smoking”.
Sometimes I think I should write something about how I might like this show. But then I realize I’m not one of those people who enjoy shows as discombobulating as this one. Instead, it’d be a more useful exercise for me to spew some complicated-sounding adjectives that I found on the internet thanks to the miracles of Google search. Seriously though, my main reason for picking up InuHasa is that it looked to be quirky and fun. Well, clearly I bit off more than I can chew. Haha, get it? I’m like a dog who used to be a human saying inspiring things about his imouto and then being forced to eat her magical technicolor curry. Ah screw it. Anyway, the point is the show is almost over and I’m still not even close to getting used to the level of insanity it projectile-vomits all over my screen. At least next episode will be the last one and I will be freed from this nightmare.
