So DanMachi turned out to be alright while Triage X was a disgusting atrocity. Our next group-watch show, Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches, has an interesting premise that involves both witches and body switching, so our hopes are higher for this one.
In addition to the normal bunch, we’re also joined this time by AiLied, another friend of ours with interesting taste in anime, but that’s a story for another day. Time for body-swapping hijinks!
Shinzen: Yeah! What a boring girl.
Kelloggs: You know what, I’m not convinced that anyone ever actually says that. That’s like, Hey look at this person, they’re really awesome, be more like then. It feels like a fictional thing where they put people down like that.
ParticularlyPeeved: It happens.
Shinzen: I feel like that does happen, especially in Asian culture.
Kelloggs: That could be true, it could be a cultural thing.
ParticularlyPeeved: Yeah, it happens for sure.
Kelloggs: It’s also possible that there was nobody better than me to point to.
PumpkinMochi: No, that can’t be right.
ParticularlyPeeved: I’m disappointed in you, be more like Kelloggs!
ParticularlyPeeved: Did his arm just go through her?
Shinzen: I was just thinking why would you, as a teacher, yell at a student for being shitty at full volume, I don’t know.
AiLied: Have you never had that happen to you at school?
Kelloggs: That would require being shitty at school.
AiLied: Well, I’m not shitty but they’re like, “Why can’t you behave like those other kids?”
Shinzen: It’s not that phrase, but the fact that you would yell loudly at a student.
ParticularlyPeeved: Again, probably a cultural thing, it happens.
PumpkinMochi: Wait shut up. It’s body switching time.
Shinzen: Ohhh? What? Ohhh!
Kelloggs: The universal lack of penis sound.
Shinzen: Oh no, I’m so boring now!
Kelloggs: Wow rude.
AiLied: I’m not getting the witch part yet, but yeah.
Kelloggs: Oh, good glasses witch.
Kelloggs: Oh my god, kissing under a hat is like, top tier.
Shinzen: WOW, why would you assume that they’re kissing, Kelloggs? That’s so lewd!
Kelloggs: I wasn’t necessarily saying they were kissing, I was just saying the concept of kissing under a hat is top tier.
Kelloggs: What is wrong with him? Why is he doing work?
Shinzen: Stop running my non-dull reputation!
Kelloggs: Oh awesome, Hayamin’s doing both versions. That’s great.
Kelloggs: So that means if we fall up the stairs together…
PumpkinMochi: I read a doujin where it was the same premise and they decided the way to get back to their own bodies was to have sex with each other.
Kelloggs: That’s just doujin logic.
AiLied: It’s like the first thing you would think about.
ParticularlyPeeved: Shouldn’t the world explode now?
PumpkinMochi: No, wrong show.
Kelloggs: God, these motherfuckers.
Shinzen: Goddamnit, augh!
PumpkinMochi: Oh no.
ParticularlyPeeved: The heck? Her tongue’s hanging out.
Kelloggs: What’s wrong with your faceeee.
Kelloggs: Oh wow.
Kelloggs: This shit got dark pretty fast.
AiLied: See, they make the bad people unattractive so you don’t feel sorry for them.
Kelloggs: Not gonna lie, really digging uncouth Hayamin. It’s a good voice for her.
Kelloggs: Haha wow.
Shinzen: What, why would she bring that up? Is she assuming that she’s hiring Yamada to beat her up or something?
Kelloggs: Fuck your shit!
ParticularlyPeeved: Oh wow.
Shinzen: My body!
Shinzen: Man… this show has really bad writing.
Kelloggs: Yeah, I wasn’t expecting-
Shinzen: But I want witches at least, I don’t get it!
Kelloggs: I’m assuming they’ll show up later.
ParticularlyPeeved: But you’re not-
PumpkinMochi: You’re supposed to run into each other and fall down the stairs!
Shinzen: You mean the first thing you should have tried?
Kelloggs: This is weird to parse because of who’s in whose body right now. Does that make it less gross and rapey?
Shinzen: Oh no! Dun dun duun!
PumpkinMochi: Gotta have a mysterious white-haired guy.
PumpkinMochi: Wait what.
AiLied: Pretty sure this is in his imagination. Oh, maybe not.
Shinzen: They’re just experimenting.
AiLied: For science.
Shinzen: Dude, you’re ruining her body!
Kelloggs: Am I the only one that hates those checkered pants some schools have? They’re like shitty golf pants.
Shinzen: Yeah, I really don’t like them.
ParticularlyPeeved: I didn’t even notice them until you mentioned it.
Kelloggs: I need to go back and get that face. Also that one too.
Shinzen: Augh… who are these people!
Kelloggs: Haha, he just got beat up by three random perverts.
Shinzen: Was that a pantyshot?
Shinzen: Damn it, I missed it. I was too busy watching those guys turn into a ball of weird… black… three things.
PumpkinMochi: This could get confusing real quick.
PumpkinMochi: Oh! Yes! Do it!
Shinzen: Hmm, I wonder if Kelloggs would kiss SerendipitouslySane for his body.
PumpkinMochi: The doujins for this show will be amazing.
Shinzen: They still haven’t done the control experiment. They don’t know if it only works with Yamada or if it works with Shiraishi too.
Kelloggs: I don’t like where you’re going with this. Although i would be interested if he has to return to his original body before switching again?
Shinzen: I think it would be tied to the body.
Kelloggs: Could somebody in his body activate the body switching? Or does his body and his mind have to be involved?
Kelloggs: So uh, I guess we’re gonna have to wait on that whole witch thing?
Shinzen: Yeah! What the fuck!
Kelloggs: I don’t care, I got Hayamin being amazing.
Boundless: Yeah, they didn’t show up at all in the manga chapters I read. So I’m not sure when they appear. Maybe another episode past this.
Kelloggs: Well, I’m gonna keep watching because Hayamin.
Shinzen: I don’t know if I want to watch this, I’ll have to see what’s on my plate. Who did this, JC Staff?
Kelloggs: No, this is Linden Films. They’re pretty shit.
Boundless: Yeah, they did Terra Formars.
Kelloggs: They’re part of this block of garbage studios doing garbage, but this might be the one I continue with because they can’t do Hayamin wrong. Silver haired guy’s pretty fun too.
