Shikabane Hime Kuro episode 7

One more bad guy down, one more girl?

The battle against balloon-man continues as Makina and Ouri follow Booby-sama into the school and finish the fight once and for all. However, in the process things happen. Makina gets attacked by an unknown figure while the same guy kills off a part of Booby-sama's existence by making the "happiness monster" vanish. A dying Booby-sama then begs Ouri to make her his hime.

Okay. This episode might be a tad more interesting and would've had more impact if Booby-sama's character was more fleshed out. Instead, what we got was a character who by all accounts is still very flat. What do we know about Booby-sama? 1. She's got boobs, 2.She likes Makina, 3.but it was Ouri that she really liked, and 4. what else? The ending wanted to evoke sympathy from us, but in all honesty, it took none because I can't think of a reason to sympathize with Booby-sama. She's an expendable figure ffs, given how flat her character was. It's ironic that the massive lack of development in her character is as big as her boobs.

In other news, the fight still rages on aganst the Shichisei, and there's no end in sight. Makina finally pwned balloon-man, who turned out to be a dead little girl. lol. Then she gets attacked by this guy who KO's her with one blow. Who's this guy? We don't know! What we know is, it's already episode 7 and they haven't showed anything macro-significant aside from the fact that the Hoshimuras possess the knowledge to create shikabane himes and this was the reason why they were attacked by the Shichisei. That's it.

All in all, this is a classic example of a half-cooked ending. In our language, we call this "supot" (lit. uncircumcised) because it tried to extract emotion but failed miserably, as the audience blurted "meh" instead of crying.

Stay tuned.
