Shigofumi 2: Lolicon is a Terrible Pursuit

(BE WARNED OF SPOILERS)

It seems Shigofumi is going to use mini-arcs. Two episodes per case. I’m really glad about that, as even two episodes can contain a whole lot more character development then just one (ahem, Jigoku Shoujo). I really want to know a bit more about Fumika and Kanaka. Why the heck are are they randomly delivering letters from dead people? Fumika doesn’t even seem to care about the contents of the letters themselves, just delivering them.

I must say, the arc’s storyline is awfully cliche. Asuna’s father is an evil scheming man who deserved to die, and Asuna is only crazy because of past experiences. Yes, Asuna is a good girl, nevermind that she killed poor Shouta for unknown reasons. But all this was presented in such a manner, that it made me almost cry and feel sorry for Asuna. Shigofumi excels at presentation.

I wish we knew more about Asuna’s father. I demand another episode on why Asuna’s father’s does what he does. I want to know why he would sell his daughters for lolicon just to create money. Teenager pornagraphy is pretty terrible, but child pornagraphy is even worse. In fact, I even want to know why he’s in a hospital.

Kanaka’s getting pretty annoying. She’s much too hyper.

  1. The two episode arcs worked very well for the first two episodes as it left a feeling of completeness the first one was missing and showed how the shingofumi chain continues. The only thing I would have liked to of heard at the end of this arc though was what Asuna wrote to her sister in her own shigofumi. Though with episode three it looks like it will not always be mini arcs but there seems to be a chance we will learn about Fumika which I would love for them to do.
