Site Work Failed, But We Didn't Die

Ugh. Still more roadblocks. Need to get an as-yet unknown password from Nay in order to get this sucker changed. For now, please enjoy the mess of a forums we've got, and dream of the forums we will probably never one day have.

Very much so.

Funny enough, people try to defend the second work by claiming that the little child never sees the protagonist as her father figure, despite that being kind of literally the point of the show.

 

Spoiler

Well, people like their creepy romance and I can't say I'm always 100% innocent in this regard (although not really with child/parent plots, there's pretty much no possibility for those to not be fundamentally messed up). But the anime adaptations have a pretty easy job of just taking the good parts of the source material and stopping before the weird stuff truly kicks in. If Usagi Drop managed to do that, maybe UchiMusume also can restrain itself well-enough. :>

Well, I'd say I tend to be 100% fine with it... as long as it's 'porn'. People can get off to whatever they want.

But I personally dislike it when it happens in a narrative work. Like, in these examples, this development completely messes up and ruins their story as a family by recontextualizing the entire work from familial love to 'raising your own waifu'. In Usagi Drop it was especially weird because both father and daughter had very clear 'romantic' interests that the story was pushing (a widow - or was it a divorcee- and her son), then it does some crazy time skip and the daughter is getting ready to marry her own father. The author ruined his own story for a fetish.

The manga Mr Heresyoon mentioned is infamous for an unexpected twist and controversial ending, which If It's for My Daughter, I'd Even Defeat a Demon Lord ended up doing, too.

Well, what would you expect of Japan, I guess. :mare:

So I went on and concluded Machikado Mazoku. I recall watching the first episode and thinking... not terribly much of it. It was good, but didn't really push me to continue watching. That's why I stopped a few months ago when I watched the first episode. That said, now that I restarted it the other day, I quickly finished the whole thing! It turned out to be so good!

Spoiler

It's wonderfully heart-warming to see our weak protagonist grow stronger and becoming healthier. Getting along more with people, and slowly becoming good friends with her 'enemy'. At the same time, the enemy in question, which never showed herself to be particularly antagonistic, also came to have some of her many heavy burdens relieved by the protagonist.

This kind of stuff is just so good! I really like happy shows about people growing closer and healing and becoming better that don't focus on the bad things in their past or present, but on surpassing them. I feel like there's a whole genre just for me that I've somehow managed to generally miss.

That said, this is a comedy and I really like comedies, so...

Over the course of the series, a narrator is her continuously going "Do your best, [Name]/[Nickname] at the protagonist.", which serves as a generally funny commentary to end segments with. However, with one of the final reveals of the series, a possibility arises... This narrator may be her father, which she hasn't seen since childhood!

The best thing about this series, besides generally funny moments, is how heart-warming it is.

Eh it was a yawnfest for the first few episodes and I gave up. Perhaps I should go back and give it a chance?

/me checks watchlist and sees 18 current shows.

Perhaps not.
