I’m going to remove the word cute from any further reviews this season (when I remember) because there’s just too many shows with a heavy reliance on cute for appeal. The two I’m watching, How to Keep a Mummy and this one, could end up with a whole season of reviews talking about cute, though School Babysitters did manage to nearly cross my threshold of tolerance for baby talk this week.
Outside of cute anime kids being cute (and somehow other students feel it is fine to try to use them as heaters) we get a minor story about Valentine’s Day which kind of goes nowhere, meet a boy who likes kids but gets a nosebleed when he’s near them (little bit creepy), and finally meet the twin’s actor father who is apparently not really a part of their lives (go figure when you are an actor).
It is all just fluff and loosely strung together scenarios for the characters to interact in but while the pastel colour scheme, laid back music and adorably sparkly kids keep rolling out across the screen, I’m guessing few people watching will care. This is kind of empty and yet it isn’t the kind of empty that annoys. Rather it allows a relaxed viewing experience that only really crumbles if you start trying to apply too much logic to a situation that just kind of is.
Thanks for reading.
