Nazotokine Episode 5

Review:

Tokine goes to help her friend move. They gush about the apartment and then the movers and then both of her friends and the movers leave to go downstairs for plot convenient reasons. Two of the movers return just in time for Tokine to transport them all into Quizum (?) and then we see the puzzle before the episode ends.

Really not certain what the point of this show is at this point. It repeats the same formula over and over and we are learning nothing about the main character that we couldn’t have figured out in episode 1. She’s not growing or developing at all. There are no other characters that we know enough about to care and Hacchin (or whatever his name really is) isn’t interesting enough as an antagonist/villain/whatever he’s supposed to be. That would all be fine if the puzzles gave us something to think about but they just don’t.

Nazotokine is available on Crunchyroll.

  1. This really sounds like it is becoming a very weird and strange show. Even Lost gave us some clues from time to time (although that could sometimes be a weird one as well). I do like mysteries but this sounds like it is taking things to far.

    1. I don’t think this one is a mystery so much as a poorly planned venture into an excuse to have a scantily clad office worker pretend to solve riddles. The other stuff all just seems like window dressing to ensure that we think there might be something more to it and don’t stop watching. They may or may not throw us a bone toward the end and actually resolve something but I mostly think we’re in for more of the same for the rest of the season.

I'd love to know what you think.
