#5 What is an anime you’re ashamed you enjoyed?
Given that I’ve watched hundreds of shows at this point, there are actually quite a few that I’m ashamed to have enjoyed! Hm, maybe I’ll write a separate post about them at some point? Anyway, shows that I’m ashamed to have enjoyed are usually ones that I know, objectively speaking, aren’t really anything special, but I, usually for quite dumb reasons, like fancying a certain bish, enjoyed them anyway. Shugo Chara is definitely one of those shows.
I had been warned prior to watching this episode that it was a weird one, but that still didn’t stop me from being taken aback by just how weird it was. I know, as a blogger, I’m meant to be analytical, unpacking the events of what I see in an almost scientific fashion, but I’m about to follow up my last point with a very wishy-washy statement: this episode had a completely different energy to it. Perhaps it was due to the change in pace, or the subtle change in character design, or the not-so-subtle changes in Saki and Satoru’s characters themselves? In any case, I, and others, struggled to keep up with this episode- it was very unlike the others which would introduce an element then give you ample time to mull it over in your mind…
