There are some things that just don’t go well together: Oil and Water. Also, j.C. Staff and adaptations. I think most of their recent ones we’re pretty half-assed, and they have the wrong idea of what comedy is.

HENNEKO – The Hentai Prince and the Stony Cat (Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko) is a Media Factory and J.C. Staff adadptation of Sou Sagara’s light novel. The story follows Yoto Yokodera, a sophomore on the track club who does squats all day just to peep on the girls in bathing suits, which he can’t get the message through to anyone. From his friend’s advice, he learns about a wish-granting statue called a Stony Cat. He goes there to wish to be more honest with women. Meanwhile, a girl named Tsukiko Tsutsukakushi has come to the statue to wish to not express herself so easily. The stone grants their wishes, therefore making Yokodera unable to keep his inner thoughts to himself and  Tsukiko completely emotionless, but it also turns out the statue passed them onto others, like Yukodera’s facade was given to Azuki Azusa…

Ever seen the movie Liar, Liar? Yeah, it’s kinda like that. But Liar, Liar is funny because it’s Jim Carrey being Jim Carrey. And Henneko… isn’t. It’s pretty headache-inducing awful, worse than that Oreimo S2 so far. They’re just trying too hard. Heck, I wonder if they are even trying at all. Move along, folks. Just your typical J.C Staff dump, folks. Nothing new to see here. Maybe if I make a wish on the Stony Cat, I can rid the world of all the piece of shit anime…
