The second episode was just as good as I had hope, the show doesn’t seem like it has any intend to disappoint anytime soon. It is still as pretty and interesting as it was last week, to be honest, I think the more I learn about the universe of Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi, the more I fall in love with it. It is really special because usually the more I learn about something the more bored and unimpressed I become with it, unless the show turns out to be amazing like is the case with this one.
I was surprised to learn that Ai is indeed a gravekeeper, although I must admit that it was definitively suspicious that she wouldn’t be considering that she was 12 years old and that no one could be born into the world for the last 15 years. The world they are in is sure full of surprised, the gravekeeper are more machine than human, there are people who are immortal and others who are human gravekeeper, it seems like just about everything could happen in this world filled with evil wishes. I like the idea of a world where the boundaries of possibilities are really wide and where limits are hard to reach. You could have any kind of things pop up in the show and it would still be as good and entertaining and wouldn’t break the story, it is a pretty good setting.
Meanwhile Ai and Hampnie Hambart are really interesting characters, they are not just bread and butter anime personalities that you see in every show. Ai might be young and shrouded in mystery, but overall she has a pretty open and adapting personality. She was able to cope with what happened around her really well and now she is already travelling the world with a man she knows little to nothing about, a man who murdered everyone she loved and who even tried to kill her too. I think that just in the end of character development this show has a lot going for it, and yet the story and the universe remain so far more fascinating than anything else.
One thing that really bugged me this episode though is Julie. Not because of his character, not because of the way he acts or because he is an enemy of both Ai and Hampnie Hambart, but rather because of its name. Who the hell names a boy Julie? This just doesn’t make any sense. I want to know who were the terrible parents who named their little boy Julie, I think they seriously deserve to be dead by now. I mean it is either that or Julie really is a girl in reality and his wife used to be a boy and everything is a little fucked up, but I don’t think that this is such a possible possibility.
In short I love this show, I love blogging it and I don’t want it to end anytime soon, I want to finally learn the secret about Ai’s village and why everyone there had to be killed, I just can’t wait to learn everything awesome that happens in that universe!
