anime review(ish): Humanity Has Declined
This anime has:
- Headless re-animated chickens
- Main character has funny conversations…in her head!
- A mute sidekick with a dark sense of humor
- Bloody loaves of bread…who can talk!
- quirky sense of humor
- reproducing fairies
I JUST started watching a simulcast (this means it’s airing episodes as they air in Japan, making them super new!) on crunchyroll called “Humanity Has Declined.”
There have only been two episodes so far, but they are pretty awesome. Totally surreal, funny, and bizarre, the main character is a liason on earth for the humans who are still living there (apparently in version of earth there are very few humans left) and the fairies. The fairies are really cute and smart with magical powers and they prefer to be paid in candy!
Anyhoo, the first two episodes feature headless re-animated chickens, fairies who can reproduce when they are happy, a girl with no hair who is able to re-grow it back in a day (and finds that it thinks she’s it’s “master” –I really can’t explain this!), and a strange mute who reads this really morbid story that he thinks is funny:
Basically I find myself saying “WHAT?!” and giggling a lot at the absurdities and strange comments (just wait until episode two –if you thought David Lynch was strange….) It’s hard to say if this is going to be the anime of the season just yet – it seems very promising though!
If you like unusual anime, you’ll love this. It’s different from any anime I’ve seen plot-wise, character wise and even style wise! Plus, I swear the ending song was written by the same people who did the ending song on Azumanga Daioh (tell me if I’m right!)
