I’ve become dangerously comfortable with Seitokai Yakuindomo‘s humor. No hesitation whatsoever to watching an episode. Heaven forbid the day I end up watching the show in a public place and some kid eyes it over my shoulders, and blurts out, “Ah! I have one of those!” when on the screen is a strap-on dildo.
The highlight of this episode is Lum’s voice actress appearing as the visitor Furuya-san, or the revelation that she was the previous student council president. I’ll admit to not having watched Urusei Yatsura. It’s very obvious how much of a legacy it has left. I bet it was quite a kick for some to see the past come knockin’ in via old jokes. Unfortunately, they’re lost on me. I may have experienced the same era of anime, but there’s a bunch of holes left in it. Mostly due to my sources of anime rental VHS tapes didn’t have everything. This really was the downside of old anime. Limited access is no longer a thing unless the anime has very few physical copies left. A couple of anime archivist groups exist, but I don’t think there’s enough interest.
With that said, I felt a disconnect with this episode. All I could think was “Furuya’s old mannerisms are old.”
Oh well. At least they left me with a hilarious ending bit. Hearing Tsuda and Hagimura’s eagerness to get the segment over quickly was great. Sometimes seiyuu tend to forget to sound like their characters in such scenes, but they nailed it.
