The Laughing Salesman Episode 7

Review:

The past couple of episodes have been interesting but have made me seriously question Moguro’s purpose and methods and the first part of episode 7 merely continues that. Moguro is outright turned down by his target and so he steals his bag and runs into a bar forcing the man to follow and that is when he essentially forces a deal upon him.

This seems needlessly malicious given how many people jump to take advantage of Moguro’s shady offers and it definitely feels like this show is making it clear that the Salesman is not acting for any kind of higher moral purpose.

The second part however decides to return to the theme of having people get what they deserve when a housewife makes a really unreasonable request that her neighbour get every thing she wants.

Anyone who was not totally disengaged could probably have seen how that one was going to end up and sure enough the episode delivers a satisfying conclusion.

These stories continue to be interesting and while some of the ‘customers’ do not deserve the pain being heaped upon them, it doesn’t take away the overall amusement and entertainment of watching these accidents waiting to happen. You know the end will be bad it is just a matter of how they get there.

The Laughing Salesman is available on Crunchyroll.

The Laughing Salesman Episode 6

Review:

Given Moguro is the only recurring character in this series, figuring him out has become kind of my main goal each week. Originally it seemed pretty straight forward that he was finding people who thought they were lacking something, giving it to them, and then pulling a be careful what you wish for manoeuvre. However, it is becoming increasingly clear that many of these characters don’t actually deserve any of what happens to them.

Salesman6b

The first story this week featured the wannabe actor, and yes he did want to be an actor but he made no promise with Moguro, didn’t become a horrible person when tasting a tiny bit of success, and generally was a nice guy. That didn’t stop Moguro from literally turning him into a monster in what was probably the most unfair consequence this who has served up yet.

Salesman6c

While the second guy had a little less self-control and was probably already headed for the usual consequences faced by someone who can’t align their schedule with societies, he also didn’t really deserve any particular supernatural consequence (and I question whether the girlfriend’s choice was hers or one inspired by Moguro which opens up a whole other discussion).

So, no closer to actually figuring out Moguro unless he really is just a sadist, but then why target the earlier characters who were already relatively unhappy.
