Otherwise known as babby's first normal SHAFT anime. Call me a newfag if you will, but up to this point, all the SHAFT productions that I have watched looked as though the team used Microsoft Office Powerpoint 2007 to "animate" their shows. Thing is, I did not even realise this was SHAFT until 5 minutes and 46 seconds in when that fucking headtilt popped out of nowhere. I have always wondered what SHAFT did with the money they got off selling Bakemonogatari Blurays, so I guess this confirms that they finally invested in a decent piece of animation software. If anything, this show looks absolutely beautiful, and I am not simply piling on the praise like hipsters who considered SHAFT's slideshow efforts to be a work of art; This has actual animation, and that is saying a lot!
Enough of the technicalities. Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko is pretty much standard boy meets girl fare. However, while most other shows make this first encounter a special affair, the boy here meets the girl wrapped up in a futon, which anyone would mistakenly pass off as a corpse. One would also consider this a form of child abuse, since the girl is under the care of a dangerously attractive MILF resembling that one character from Toradora! who decided to settle down and start a family. Turns out boy and girl are actually cousins, or so the plot goes.
The plot also dictates this is to be comedy and because being male lead is suffering, the funnies are mostly at his expense as he has to put up with the all the girl's eccentricities. The girl claims to be an alien, and if this is anything like that SHAFT show about homeless people living under a bridge, I am inclined towards calling her a bluff. Well, branding her a liar would be harsh, since I believe, much like the show I mentioned in the previous sentence, she believes that she is an alien. Delusions resulting from years of abuse in a household she ran away, from no doubt. Not that any of that matters of course, since this girl, who goes by the name of Erio, is a walking pillar of sex wrapped up in a mattress. Unraveled, there is something about that unkempt appearance and half-shut, near orgasmic eyelids that gave me a raging hard-on; Like she was having intercourse with herself in that futon while simultaneously engaging in everyday activities.
Oh god I love Erio and this show so much already.
P.S The OP is so bad I cannot stop listening to it. It is like that cute girl you took to the karaoke and thought could sing but turned out to be horrible, yet she is so adorable trying that you went "Fuck it" and asked for an encore anyway. I had the song on loop as I wrote this post obviously.
