Our lead character is the UN liaison to fairies in a world where humanity has declined.
As those who’ve read my episodic commentaries will know, I was not a fan of this show. Why? After twelve episodes, I still haven’t been able to satisfactorily answer that. But I’ll try once again.
First of all, the show’s message is all over the place. I don’t know what they’re trying to say half the time. The overarching theme seems to be about how humanity can decline (honestly, this just seems stupid to me), but then we have an entire arc about space probes that felt sad, fighting game parodies, and a random arc about time travel.
Space probes that feel sad? Come on guys. As someone who works on robots this is just insultingly stupid. Are the creators of this show capable of rational thought?
It sure doesn’t seem like it, since they have to invent problems to make fun of where none exist. I mean, it’s not like the earth’s population is growing exponentially or anything: I’m pretty sure humanity is going to die out soon and nobody will care!
Apparently, or so I’m told, the show’s major concern is that people pour all their energy passionately into one thing (such as writing yaoi) which leads them to neglect other important pursuits and will lead to humanity’s extinction.
Well, I learned about this “problem” in my sixth grade history class. It’s called “specialization” and it’s what led humans to move from nomadic tribes to cities and form civilizations. Yikes. I’d better stop doing things passionately right away!
This has been a life changing anime for me. I hope you can learn a valuable lesson from Humanity has Declined too and remove all the cancerous passion from your lives.
Oh, yeah, the main character’s sarcastic comments are amusing though. Full letter grade up for that.
- Storytelling – D – Story, what’s that? Let’s make a disconnected string of random stuff that makes us look intelligent.
- Voice – B - Has a great style defined by widespread indifference.
- Characters – C – Has one character until the last arc. She’s good though.
- Attention Grab – C – Varied wildly depending on the arc. Last arc was good, that time travel arc was horribly boring.
- Production – B – I do like the visual style.
- Overall – C
Recommendations – Milky Holmes (Random humor that’s actually funny)
