A new season is upon us, and with it is Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou, which is probably the best haremshit show this year. I’ve been looking forward to this ever since I discovered that it was a thing.
It is interesting enough that we were able to drag SerendipitouslySane from underneath the rock where he lives to watch this with us, as well as AiLied, a connoisseur of highly refined and cultured shows like this.
Kelloggs: This is off to a good start.
PumpkinMochi: She wants the D. That’s why she has those hairclips.
AiLied: I’m okay with this.
PumpkinMochi: Oh god, not the tip.
Kelloggs: STOP! NO! STOP!
SerendipitouslySane: It’s just like Pokemon.
Kelloggs: Naw dude naw. Fuck this show.
AiLied: So far I have no complaints.
PumpkinMochi: Yeah, I don’t get why Kelloggs is saying “Fuck this.”
AiLied: What don’t you like?
SerendipitouslySane: Yeah, give me a while. I’m gonna have to list this.
AiLied: Are you prejudiced?
Kelloggs: Let’s say yes.
Kelloggs: They’re saying one word. Like, what the fuck is this? Mon Mon Mon Monster.
AiLied: This is actually a pretty cool opening. Zombie!
AiLied: Did they just spirit bomb him with a heart?
Kelloggs: Why do we have to watch him shit?
PumpkinMochi: So is he complaining that he has a giant ass house? Because I wouldn’t complain.
AiLied: Asking the important questions.
SerendipitouslySane: I’m just bothered by the fact that he’s gonna stand there in wet clothes.
AiLied: Does she have ass cheeks between her tail? That’s pretty cool, I guess.
Kelloggs: Ughhhhh. You know, Bikini Warriors would have been over by now.
PumpkinMochi: ANM48? Okay then.
AiLied: See, this is like how Shirobako should have been.
Everyone else: WHAT.
Kelloggs: I don’t- What does this have to do with Shirobako?!
AiLied: Oh, I meant Show by Rock. They both have a S.
Kelloggs: I mean, that’s less bad but still.
AiLied: I’d actually watch a Shirobako where they make an ecchi anime. That’d be pretty cool.
SerendipitouslySane: Why aren’t we getting normal monster girls, like bunny girls and cat girls?
PumpkinMochi: Those are too normal.
Kelloggs: Those aren’t monsters.
PumpkinMochi: That’s a lot of eggs.
SerendipitouslySane: How do you like them?
AiLied: This is the plot. From a good angle.
SerendipitouslySane: Have we established where the lamia’s vagina is?
AiLied: Yeah, in the front.
Shinzen: How would they even know?
AiLied: See, they provide reasons for why he’s not coming on to her. It’s illegal. He’s a good guy.
Kelloggs: Smith? Is her father Equipment?
PumpkinMochi: See? It’s a show about tolerance.
AiLied: Yeah! And boobs.
PumpkinMochi: Goddamnit, AiLied.
Kelloggs: I refuse to tolerate this show.
SerendipitouslySane: It looks like she’s been dipped in chocolate.
AiLied: That’s also okay.
AiLied: It’s right there. And now you know.
Kelloggs: What the fuck man.
SerendipitouslySane: How does that- I’m still trying to figure out the geometry of it.
AiLied: It’s like at the base of her pelvis, she’s got a vagina or something.
AiLied: Aren’t you glad there’s still half the episode to go?
PumpkinMochi: Maybe Kelloggs will be more happy when the harpy shows up.
Kelloggs: Does she have glasses?
PumpkinMochi: No, but-
Kelloggs: Then I don’t fucking care. Does she have tanlines?
PumpkinMochi: Actually…. I don’t want to give away any spoilers.
SerendipitouslySane: I mean, they have a very nice house. I don’t see why a love hotel is necessary.
AiLied: It’s about the romance.
Shinzen: I really don’t like the Agent Smith lady.
PumpkinMochi: What a mystery.
PumpkinMochi: What could this be?
Shinzen: What is it?
SerendipitouslySane: Haha, that’s so fucking stupid.
Kelloggs: That’s why it’s not embarrassing.
AiLied: See Kelloggs, do you want to be that guy?
Kelloggs: I don’t know, what was that guy doing?
PumpkinMochi: He was like, “Oh, that snake girl is gross!”
Kelloggs: See, this is the opposite of a love hotel.
Shinzen: No man, it’s the hotel where you go to get casual sex, that’s why it’s loveless.
Kelloggs: Goddamnit, that’s just making it worse.
AiLied: See, you can use them for other things, like taking baths in the middle of the day.
Kelloggs: According to every doujin I read, this ends in sex. Even if they go inside to get away from the rain or something like that.
Kelloggs: See, this is my character. She wears glasses and hates lewd things. Oh wait, it’s Smith-san. Never mind.
SerendipitouslySane: Goddamnit, NSA.
PumpkinMochi: Look, it’s Kelloggs again.
Kelloggs: No, stop! He doesn’t even have glasses.
Shinzen: Dude, he looks just like you!
Kelloggs: Ow, that’s my face!
SerendipitouslySane: Suddenly, we’re watching Index.
Kelloggs: That’s like child abuse excuses now. Oh, he just fell down the stairs, I didn’t give him a black eye. He ran into a doorknob.
Shinzen: It’s so touching, Kelloggs.
Kelloggs: I hate you all.
Kelloggs: Thus ends another normal day of snake fuckery.
AiLied: She’s a lamia, there’s a difference.
AiLied: Oh, this ending is actually interesting.
PumpkinMochi: Oh, it’s the Monster Squad.
AiLied: Yeah, maybe you’ll like one of these characters more, Kelloggs.
Kelloggs: None of them have glasses.
SerendipitouslySane: She has no fucking sights on that rifle!
AiLied: She doesn’t need them. Did you see her eye?
SerendipitouslySane: That’s not how- It doesn’t matter how good your eyes are. If you don’t have sights, you can’t aim a rifle!
AiLied: Her eye is her sights!
Kelloggs: That doesn’t- What ASHDASDFSD
SerendipitouslySane: No! Even Kelloggs knows that’s not how it works!
AiLied: But it could work that way.
Kelloggs: No, you need your eye to line up with something.
SerendipitouslySane: Yeah, that’s what sights are for. Though I kinda like the ending. The zombie has a pretty cool submachine gun.
AiLied: I like this thing at the end where they go into the different subspecies because I find that pretty cool.
SerendipitouslySane: Yeah, you watch this show for the world-building, don’t you?
AiLied: I mean, I actually- I mean, no. But I liked that stuff before it was a thing.
