So we have a salesman who helps fulfill people’s wishes and we all know how that is going to end.
I checked this episode out of curiosity and was pleasantly surprised. The art is hideous and the animation questionable, the plot extremely predictable, and the episode being split into two different stories meant very limited characterisation. Really, there is little to recommend this but the format reminds me of those old TV shows where we meet someone with a weakness or a vice and grant them a wish with horrific results over and over again. Maybe this will do something more and develop the salesman or maybe it will remain strictly episodic; either way I’ll give it a few more episodes because it was enjoyable enough. Plus the opening theme is kind of entertaining which is more than I can say for most of the first episodes I’ve watched this week.
The Laughing Salesman is available on Crunchyroll.
