Elegant Yokai Apartment Life Episode 12: Sometimes People Are Just Broken

Review:

This story still has no real idea what tone it is actually going for. The majority of episode 12 has Inaba and the story being super serious as we first assist the possessed teacher and then realise that even when he’s not possessed, he’s just a little bit broken at this point. Of course, the audience kind of already knew that given the Id monster was attracted to him for a reason. Just taking the monster away doesn’t fix everything else.

And it is all just going through the motions again. Characters do everything you would expect to resolve the situation, though Inaba is still making some really stupid choices, and nothing really raises the bar above passingly interesting.

The worst parts are Inaba’s internal (and sometimes even external) monologues. With some characters this can come off as charming, or at least offer some insight, but Inaba’s character just comes off sounding presumptuous or really naive. Although, part of my overall issue is I just don’t like this show so now I’m nitpicking. Plus, the preview for next week makes it look like a pool episode. Let us all hope they offer something more than girls in swimsuits. You know, like a storyline.

  1. “Let us all hope they offer something more than girls in swimsuits. You know, like a storyline.” – there is so much truth to this statement. I can’t begin to count the number of shows that have left me disappointed because of this. Thanks for the review!

    1. It just seems like they’ve wrapped up the only real plot point they had going and yet apparently there’s another episode. That kind of makes me worried about what sort of fluff they are going to foist on us. Another show I might hope that they were going to give us some stand alone or interesting storyline, but this show does not deserve the benefit of the doubt.
