Okay readers, give me an M!
Give me the letter I!

Now give me the F!
Put it all together and what does it spell?
That’s right all you literal and figurative assholes out there. Now we are in a really difficult situation. Do you think Kusuri is where this show gets weird? That was just 100 GirlFrieza’s first transformation, and now it’s shifting into that weird xenomorph-looking form, except with literally giant breast-milking machines attached. This is probably where I will lose some of you on this trip, and while I don’t blame anyone for jumping ship, I assure you that if you stay on board, you will witness seas beyond your wildest dreams. This episode, and especially its final moments, represents a fundamental shift for the series, as 100 Girlfriends takes the very concept of “good” or “bad” taste and throws them into the wood chipper. , before using the atomized remains as raw material for a luxurious mattress for mother and daughter to sleep on together.
I know, there was a whole episode before that scene but we all know why you’re here. The Rentaro Family’s joint intrusion features some funny jokes, some sweet moments, and a scene where Karane applies cream to his shorts while having his belly rubbed. It’s funny and/or damning, but none of that compares to the sheer insanity of Hahari Hanazono. If the whole thing was just that Hahari was also Rentaro’s soulmate then it would be a scandal and very problematic, but not like that compared to what happened before. It’s Hahari’s backstory, itself a strange and tragic reflection of the kind of unruly love this show has glorified that makes this so difficult. Not only is she Mom’s Girlfriend (really), she’s also a mother who was artificially inseminated at age 13 to start a family with her dying boyfriend. That’s all absolutely fucking crazy, but it’s a big part of why this works for me.
I don’t blame anyone for being uncomfortable with the idea of a high school student dating an adult, let alone that adult being the mother of one of his other girlfriends. I’ve come up with a lot of other shows with a lot smaller age gaps. If you heard Hahari’s backstory and thought it was the craziest thing you’ve ever read, then you’re well within your rights to do so. However, it’s because of how far the series goes, how ridiculous the whole conceit of this character is, that it succeeds. 100 Girlfriends operates in an increasingly exaggerated, surreal world that has as much in common with our own as it does with Narnia—and you know full well that Aslan won’t approve of any of this. By distancing itself from anything resembling a real or grounded relationship, a lot of the burdens from the real world cannot penetrate the membrane of fiction while a more realistic or over-the-top approach will help move those worries forward. door. Hahari, as a character, is just crazy enough to work.
Besides, no matter how crazy and potentially terrifying every aspect of this woman is, I have no doubt that Rentaro would love her just as much as a (relatively) partner. ) less problems than his. Even before Soulmate Zing was patented, you could see the moment of vulnerability that Hahari showed as Rentaro immediately empathized with her life story. It was probably the first time she’d explained it to anyone and wasn’t met with a thousand-yard stare or a quick retreat. However, Rentaro, with his limitless capacity for love, could completely understand the lengths she went to to preserve the memory of her first love. If the Hanazono family is blinded by love, then it only makes sense that the blind lead the blind. Whether they’re taking this show to the next level or falling short is simply a matter of taste.
As usual, here are the number of alternative review images for Family Size.
