Pedantic Perspective Watches: Shomin Sample ep. 01

Our journey into the world of trashy Fall 2015 anime continues with Shomin Sample, a story about a normal high student attending a school full of ojous to teach them about commoners. In our season preview, Kelloggs was hyping this up, so let’s see if this turns out to be fun or if Kelloggs ends up being massively disappointed.

PumpkinMochi: Look at this classy school.

ParticularlyPeeved: I thought people were looking forward to this show.

Kelloggs: We are, because we’re terrible.

Shinzen: But it’s so classy.

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.25_[2015.10.12_21.56.48]

PumpkinMochi: Look at all these ojous!

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.39_[2015.10.12_21.57.16]

Keidence: Welcome, commoner!

ParticularlyPeeved: Goddamnit.

PumpkinMochi: Oh my god, everyone has a question.

ParticularlyPeeved: Do you have instant coffee? Do you not grind your own beans?

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_01.02_[2015.10.12_22.01.19]

Kelloggs: This OP is special already. I’m curious about the physics of the skirt on the girl hanging upside down from the tree.

CriticalMiss: What the fuck?

Keidence: What was that?

PumpkinMochi: I saw muscles!

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_01.19_[2015.10.12_22.00.09]

PumpkinMochi: One of these is not like the other.

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_01.42_[2015.10.12_22.18.04]

PumpkinMochi: I’m regretting this already.

Shinzen: I was thinking the same thing. I’m like, why am I watching this?

Kelloggs: This is a good show, you guys.

PumpkinMochi: Shut up, Kelloggs. I haven’t actually been looking at the screen, I’ve been doing other stuff in browser. What’s happening?

PumpkinMochi: The OP is still going.

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_02.22_[2015.10.12_22.21.10]

PumpkinMochi: And that’s the shot it ends on.

Kelloggs: Get me some tea, bitch.

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_02.54_[2015.10.12_22.24.01]

PumpkinMochi: Woahhhhhhh.

Keidence: What. The. Fuck.

Kelloggs: This wasn’t in the original! What is this?!

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.02_[2015.10.12_22.26.38]

PumpkinMochi: What are they doing?

Shinzen: I don’t know.

CriticalMiss: This is supposed to be a harem show, right?

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.28_[2015.10.12_22.28.16] [HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.39_[2015.10.12_22.28.06]

Kelloggs: No time to explain!

Shinzen: Why would he agree to be a shomin sample?

Kelloggs: He didn’t.

PumpkinMochi: Yeah, he was kidnapped.

Shinzen: But he could just leave, right?

Kelloggs: No, they’ll explain it later.

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.11_[2015.10.12_22.31.58][HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.17_[2015.10.12_22.32.19]

PumpkinMochi: Oh okay.

Shinzen: Man, now his classmate will never get her tea.

ParticularlyPeeved: So they couldn’t find a commoner girl?

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.16_[2015.10.12_22.34.54][HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.22_[2015.10.12_22.35.02][HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.27_[2015.10.12_22.35.09] [HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.30_[2015.10.12_22.35.14][HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.33_[2015.10.12_22.35.20]

PumpkinMochi: So they turn into NEETs.

Shinzen: Why don’t they just give them manga or something?

Kelloggs: Don’t worry about it. The more questions you ask, the worse the show gets.

Shinzen: I feel like if they just watch television or read manga, they’ll be fine.

Kelloggs: But they don’t, that’s the thing.

Shinzen: It could be part of the curriculum.

CriticalMiss: They don’t have Internet?

PumpkinMochi: Maybe it’s heavily censored.

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.58_[2015.10.12_22.41.38][HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.01_[2015.10.12_22.41.43]

PumpkinMochi: Oh god, what is his “superior quality”?

PumpkinMochi: Um, where did you get this intel?

PumpkinMochi: Goddamn childhood friends.

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.35_[2015.10.12_22.58.05][HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.36_[2015.10.12_22.58.09]

PumpkinMochi: Oh no.

CriticalMiss: She opened her eyes.

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.57_[2015.10.12_23.00.18][HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.00_[2015.10.12_23.00.23]

CriticalMiss: Why didn’t they just kidnap a girl?

ParticularlyPeeved: That’s what I said earlier.

Kelloggs: Because light novels gotta light novel.

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.21_[2015.10.12_23.02.02] [HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.23_[2015.10.12_23.02.06]

Shinzen: I gotta stop thinking.

Kelloggs: You really need to. That was your first mistake.

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.55_[2015.10.12_23.03.11]

Kelloggs: I think I might like this show, you guys.

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.17_[2015.10.12_23.04.20]

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.18_[2015.10.12_23.04.24]

ParticularlyPeeved: A cell phone, oh my god!

PumpkinMochi: They don’t know about- okay.

Shinzen: They can’t have Internet.

CriticalMiss: How are they supposed to go into society without knowing what a smart phone is?

Shinzen: Well, yeah. That’s why they have problems.

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.14_[2015.10.12_23.09.46][HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.22_[2015.10.12_23.09.57]

Shinzen: So brave.

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.31_[2015.10.12_23.10.09]

Kelloggs: Thighs!

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.39_[2015.10.12_23.12.50]

PumpkinMochi: Is he gonna fall on her?

Keidence: I’d put my money on boob grab.

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.44_[2015.10.12_23.14.21][HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.49_[2015.10.12_23.14.41][HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.52_[2015.10.12_23.14.46][HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.57_[2015.10.12_23.14.53]

Shinzen: WHAT.

ParticularlyPeeved: Was the desk there too?

PumpkinMochi: Now this is classy.

Shinzen: Wow.

Kelloggs: This is how rich people operate, you guys. I don’t get why you’re so confused.

PumpkinMochi: I’m a commoner, Kelloggs. I don’t understand.

Kelloggs: Someday you’ll learn, Mochi.

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_11.24_[2015.10.12_23.21.14][HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_11.26_[2015.10.12_23.21.19][HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_11.28_[2015.10.12_23.21.22]

Everybody: Oh nooooooo!

PumpkinMochi: How dare you drop it!

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_11.34_[2015.10.12_23.21.37]

Everybody: WHAT.

ParticularlyPeeved: How is that even- what?

Kelloggs: God, this show…

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.18_[2015.10.12_23.24.53]

Kelloggs: Commoners are like leprechauns, you guys.

Shinzen: Or frogs.

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.55_[2015.10.12_23.27.46]

Shinzen: She doesn’t talk like an ojou-sama…

ParticularlyPeeved: What the heck?

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.17_[2015.10.12_23.51.13]

ParticularlyPeeved: He’s got a cupboard or something and that’s it?

PumpkinMochi: Ugh, muscles incoming.

ParticularlyPeeved: Or that.

Shinzen: Yeah…

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.40_[2015.10.12_23.52.32] [HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.42_[2015.10.12_23.52.37]

CriticalMiss: What?

Kelloggs: You guys overestimated this show.

Shinzen: Mhm.

Keidence: Does he have posters of thighs?

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.06_[2015.10.12_23.57.14]

Kelloggs: He does, that’s what- yeah.

PumpkinMochi: What the fuck is wrong with you?

CriticalMiss: Seriously, do they actually educate people here?

PumpkinMochi: Yeah, they teach them about ojou-ness, not about practical things.

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.47_[2015.10.13_00.13.35]

PumpkinMochi: She wants to be a commoner?

ParticularlyPeeved: No, she wants to be more popular in class.

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.48_[2015.10.13_01.26.02] [HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.50_[2015.10.13_01.25.55]

ParticularlyPeeved: What? Where did this come from?

Shinzen: Man, I was sorta thinking like, you know what would be cooler? If they did this more organically and it was a student who got a scholarship to this prestigious school and-

ParticularlyPeeved: Like Ouran?

Shinzen: Yeah, I realized that’s what Ouran is.

Kelloggs: Yeah, like a good show.

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.53_[2015.10.13_01.30.21][HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.01_[2015.10.13_01.30.34]

ParticularlyPeeved: Here, have a PSP.

Shinzen: It’s a Vita.

CriticalMiss: But there’s no good games on PS Vita, what are they talking about.

Shinzen: Persona 4 is okay. And so is Gravity Rush.

[HorribleSubs] Shomin Sample - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.06_[2015.10.13_01.34.32]

PumpkinMochi: The commoner club?

ParticularlyPeeved: Oh god, really?

Kelloggs: It’s a school club show too, you guys.

Shinzen: Kelloggs…

Kelloggs: What?

Shinzen: This show sucks.

Kelloggs: Yeah, it does suck.

Shinzen: I want Monster Musume back.

Kelloggs: I’d still take it over Monster Musume, but this show is not good.

PumpkinMochi: Does it get better?

Kelloggs: I feel like the jokes do get better, but I don’t like the way they’re doing it anyway. Like, this wasn’t as good as the original. I don’t usually like to be that guy, but here we are.

PumpkinMochi: Look Kelloggs, we have to watch something.

Shinzen: We can watch Asterisk.

Keidence: Or Burst.

Shinzen: What’s Burst?

PumpkinMochi: Season 2 of Testament.

Shinzen: But I didn’t watch the first season.

PumpkinMochi: You don’t need to.

CriticalMiss: There are so many light novel adaptations, I can’t tell them apart anymore.

Shinzen: I wonder if there’ll be a point where this type of anime isn’t profitable, but I feel like we’re already there.
