We’ll end the show by putting Tomoko’s condition in the most charitable light possible.
The girl does have a point though. Tomoko realizes she has a problem. And she always is trying to do something about it. That’s admirable.
Where things go wrong are that Tomoko always tries to do the wrong thing. She always thinks there’s going to be some easy, magical solution. If she had just joined a different club, or killed the cockroach, her life would be wonderful in every way. People seem to have an unfortunate tendency to think this way.
The cockroach scene was very well done. But wow, I’ve never seen such a big group of wusses in my entire life.
