Inu x Boku SS 01 – Bland, Soulless Tripe

I’d rather watch an anime about cute giant skeletons doing cute things.

If there’s anything worse than the shrill cry of desperation, it’s the deafening silence of indifference.

Inu x Boku SS is shockingly bland. I can’t think of a single thing that could constitute as a ‘strong point’. To put it in a less crude manner: “It’s not good, but it’s not bad either.” I’d give it more credit for being decent, but in an age where a show like Guilty Crown exists solely to be mocked, mediocre is possibly the worst thing you can be.

I suppose you can commend the series for well placed fanservice, but that’s hardly a great achievement when you think about it. The production values are decent, but the color palette is just as bland as the rest of the series. There’s this weird use of washed out pastel colors that just doesn’t sit right with me.

Yes– Inu x Boku SS is decent at best and will certainly find an audience fit to appreciate its charms (whatever those charms are). I know I’m being very harsh on Inu x Boku SS, but it would’ve helped if this series didn’t seem so devoid of any ambition.

  1. I really couldn’t agree more. I WANT to like the Soushi, but he really just comes off as a mindless slave (even though they are trying to make him more interesting by not telling us why he feels so compelled to serve Ririchiro). The other characters really don’t interest me at all. Ririchiro being my least favorite character of the show. You know it’s bad when the protagonist doesn’t even beat the random characters unloading the moving van.

    • I find the characters to be slightly altered tropes and of course, each one probably possesses a dark secret meant to make them sympathetic or flawed but it’s just too predictable at this stage especially when no one actually cares.

  2. I happen to love this show. If you people don’t like it, then don’t just say how bland you think the show is, just don’t say anything at all. You have your own opinion, and we have ours, so please, KEEP IT TOO YOURSELF!!!

    • I happen to feel indifferent towards this show. If you people like it, then don’t just say how great you think the show is, just don’t say anything at all. You have your own opinion, and we have ours, so please, KEEP IT *TO YOURSELF!!!
