Even though it does epitomises everything that I can’t stand about Japanese media -in terms of hypersexualisation, harem comedies & the enforcement of gender roles- I can’t helped but adore he manga Monsutā Musume no Iru Nichijō because it takes such clichéd tropes & subverts them by making all the female characters into cute monsters, vying for the affection of a constantly put upon nice guy, in the form of Kimihito.
The manga is surprisingly sweet & funny, despite all the nudity & adult situations (you can tell that the mangaka Okayado started off making porn -monster girl porn!), so was stoked to find out today that there will be an anime adaptation coming in July.
Here’s the PV of it:
It might just be the worst anime ever, more so with all the fan service & hypersexualisation, but I’m already a fan, so am looking forward to seeing what they do with it (& to see how they’ll censor it as well).
