Do you love anime? Whats that, I can’t hear you? I said do you love anime? “Private Piles your a#* looks like about 3oo lbs of ……” Well any way if you do like anime I’ve got something for you. One major problem I have with watching anime is the lack of reality and the never-ending high pitched idiot nature of characters I’d like to perform a swirly on. The next person that says ピカピカ or かわいい is getting pistol-whipped. I actually do like those archetype characters and the overarching themes of anime, but a little goes a long way. The things I find annoying in anime are also the same things that make the genre great and unique. It’s analogous to the slap stick routine and daffy ducks lisp getting old when watching Looney Tunes. After a while I need a Ren and Stimpy to come along and blast the genre apart. But more importantly, steering away from mainstream anime gives learners a chance to explore new styles of Japanese Language.
When i got tired of all the other kinds of anime I found “NHK ni yokoso!” literally (welcome to the NHK). ＮＨＫにようこそ！ is definitely an adult oriented anime. From what i remember there is nothing to graphic but the subject matter explores complex issues of culture and social isolation. That’s not to say the show is always dead serious and sit-in-a-bubble-bath-and-eat-haagen-dazs-depressing. It simply means its more thought provoking and revealing than your typical power-up-boss-battle-anime. If your a fan of anime and have any interest in modern Japanese society, I suggest giving NHKによこそ！a look.
Here’s the link to the first episode.
Now that I think about it there are probably more high pitched annoying characters in this anime than most. However, they are using these characters to satirically look at Japanese society. So I put up with it.
Just another piece of JP gomi.
