A princess enters into an abusive marriage with a King she’s nearly old enough to have given birth to.
I don’t understand how anyone could possibly consider a show like this romantic. Incest is fucked up, but I could at least imagine how someone could potentially be attracted to their sibling. But the relationship in this show? No, I cannot understand it at all.
First of all it’s an arranged marriage. Second the kid is half her age. And finally, he hits her and threatens to throw in her prison and is generally a little brat. It’s completely incomprehensible to me how anyone could consider this romantic.
And the girl is happy about this and always smiling and cheerful. What in the world are we teaching our children? Shows like this probably contribute to why so many people remain in abusive relationships.
Setting the relationship aside (and it’s a big aside, since it’s the main subject of the show) Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii is just plain boring. Knocked me right out. Most of the humor is people making faces. The characters and their voice acting comes across as extremely flat. In fact the entire show is like that. There’s just nothing that manages to pique my interest.
I shouldn’t be too harsh though, since I think the target audience is little girls. It certainly shows. But even so, what in the world are we teaching our children…
- Storytelling – F – Flat and dull.
- Voice – F – Unoriginal and vapid.
- Characters – F – Only the main two have much of a personality at all, and they’re pretty boring.
- Attention Grab – F – Zzzz….
- Production – D – Voice acting is emotionless, animation lacking.
- Overall – F
Recommendations – If you’re a little girl who liked this show (I hope such a person doesn’t actually exist) you should go talk to some actual boys, they’re more interesting than your imaginary shota prince.
