Sasami-san@Ganbaranai after episode 04 – Final Thoughts

           Well, at least we got an explanation to the absurdities seen the first episode. A temple that inbreeds to keep the power of god in the bloodline…the blonde girl being an offshoot of the old god…the robotic girl also once was a part, no, a cursed part of the old god…that was raised by an evil man and modified by “magic” in becoming a robot. And while the teacher was elucidating all these enlightening facts, explosions were going on and the army’s involved and yadda yadda yadda. Right. This is a case where the explanations are more absurd than the absurdities themselves.
           Every single episode has felt like the product of a writer getting drunk and while barfing on the toilet he or she brainstorms the “plot”, and I use the word very loosely, for Sasami-San@Ganbaranai. But that’s the problem: anyone can get intoxicated or high and write down their random trains of thought. I compare once more to the more substantial Jinrui wa Suitaishimashita, as eccentric as Jinrui wa Suitaishimashita was, its deliberate avoidance to name the female protagonist, the mature themes it played with, there was clear evidence that it was intently constructed by an intelligent force. Here…not so much.
           So I ask these questions of myself. Is there a point to this anime? Nope. Is this anime funny? Nah. Does it even entertain me? Ehhh…not quite. And so I free myself from Sasami-san@Ganbaranai.
