The mid-season of this winter season is just about upon us now and the focus has shifted from figuring out which series to watch, based on how good of a first impression they left, to seeing if these shows can continue to deliver on their initial promises of quality. One series I’m surprised that is getting almost zero coverage is Yoru no Yatterman because I think it’s confidently making it’s case for being one of season’s best. Yes, it is walking a fine line by keeping some silly elements in a show that is very serious; however, it has been able to walk that fine line without falling. And in a larger sense, I’m a person whose often silliest at the most serious of times because that’s how I deal with it so some comedy to lighten one’s mood is a good thing as far as I’m concerned. Also, in the show, bringing the people a dose of anti-authoritative laughter is really a good weapon against the Yatterman dictatorship.
Speaking of laughter, let’s move on to this week’s anime quiz. 🙂
