Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita Specials – Review

[Commie] Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita - Special 01 [BD 720p AAC] [0438101B].mkv_snapshot_00.10_[2013.04.03_08.45.35]

From a fantastic series comes these six extra Blu-ray specials, each one packaged to a separate Blu-ray volume holding ~2 episodes of the series each. These two-minute specials (totalling to ~12 minutes) offer a condensed slice of Jinrui’s hilarity in the form of one fully encompassed skit: Watashi finds one of the fairies’ inventions idly by, and since her curiousness always gets the best of her, a random turn of events causes her to shrink down in fairy form! Now lies a touching tale of wits (or rather, the lack of) and bravery to become normal-sized again.

Why you so cute?

Why you so cute?

As a whole, Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita is a highly enjoyable piece taken either analytically in its social commentary subtly suffused into the narrative, or more generally in its brashness with the story’s actions. In both perspectives, Jinrui stays at the top of its game, uplifted to excellence by writer Romeo Tanaka’s cheeky style. Whereas many series specials suffer either from needless fan pandering or relying on inconsistent lowbrow humor, these Jinrui specials do not; fans will continue to be entertained by the closely rendered style in homage to Jinrui’s phenomenal satirical atmosphere.

We all know they're mocking moe, right?

We all know they’re mocking moe, right?

Much of the series’ meritable assets are commonly attributed to Watashi’s clever quips, and things here take a reverse effect: her growing lack of cleverness actually becomes a plot device, causing her to squander as much wisdom as she can. It’s a light-hearted jab about the effect of sweets on the brain; it’s an uncommon allegory featuring civilized rodents playing the fallen man and infernal weasels playing the two-faced villain; it’s even a parody on a common fairy tale; and ultimately, it’s an intriguing glimpse on the life of fairies. At all odds, Jinrui continues to dish out its savory desserts—a compilation of random items that on a closer glance oozes sheer cleverness in writing.

I miss you Jinrui.

I miss you Jinrui.

Score: Great (7/10)
