Well, I was hoping for a show like this to pop up sometime soon. We always need a winner and a show to beat every other show and this time around, I have a feeling that Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi might very well be it. I wasn’t sure what to expect from the show, seeing as it was labeled as a Mystery/Fantasy, but it turned out to be much better than I expected. You can’t blame me to always have some doubt when I see a little girl with a pretty face as the cover of a show, I cannot help but fear the pedophilia or the moe-frenzy.
In the end the show was nothing close to that as it was very dark, mysterious and serious. I haven’t seen enough of the show to clearly label it with confidence, but it really looks like a great seinen from the first episode. A little girl that has the burden of burying her entire village…her first task at her new job was to bury her own mother… it just seems like she is in for some really nasty and cruel things. Even more considering that now it turns out that maybe she isn’t a gravekeeper at all and everyone was lying to her for some reason but we just can’t know why. This is why I love this show so much already. We are only at the first episode and I already have a thirst to know more about the show and its universe. I want to know why people were lying to her, I want to know if she is or isn’t a gravekeeper, I want to know what the hell is wrong with all the characters…I WANT TO KNOW EVERYTHING!
I will most definitively blog this show, watch this show and have so much faith and expectation towards it that it won’t ever be able to be as good as I hoped it to be. Considering that it is summer and every other show are either extremely generic or extremely bad (or both), I am sure that I will have Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi high in my list of things to watch. I mean at this point it would be difficult for anyone to start a musical int he show, or for the show to turn into a school life slice of life thingy. It is different it is fresh, I’ve seen zombies countless times before, I’ve seen weird little girl countless times before, I’ve seen maniac hero killer countless times before, but it is the first time I see them presented in such a way. I am certain that this show will continue to be original and fresh and it is the reason why I will blog it and love it I’m sure.
I would recommend everyone to give the show a try, the first episode was really interesting and emotionally packed and I’m certain it is better than any other crap you could be watching this summer anyways.
