A pretentious high schooler discovers he’s being mindfucked.
Wow, what a great first episode! At least until the end, when it turned out the dark secret of the world was IDOLS. I really loved the vibe it had going for most of the episode, where you knew that something was horribly wrong but you can’t quite tell what. When you reveal how stupid whatever is going on is from the first episode, it feels to me like it ruins most of the fun.
Still, based on how well they set the mood for most of the first episode, I’m looking forward to seeing where they take this. It seems like they’re taking it somewhere exceptionally dumb but I will keep my faith since I loved the first episode so much.
