Munto TV – Episode 02

25 01 2009

One of the things I really enjoyed about this episode was watching Yumemi’s internal struggle play out.  On one hand, she has a fairly human problem with one of the best friends eloping with a delinquent.  But at the same time she’s got her own personal/supernatural problem w/ Munto appearing from time to time.  The extended dialogue between Yumemi and Munto does a great job of show how Yumemi’s mind works.

In fact, on the whole, I tended the enjoy the dialogue scenes in this episode a whole lot more then the physical scenes.  They felt very genuine, not at all forced, and really made me appreciate the character.  I mean I don’t think I’ve ever liked a character (Yumemi) this much after only two episodes.

That being said, I feel that when she agreed to help Munto, it was just so that he would go away, rather then in general interest.  However, when she saw Munto being attacked, I think she was generally concerned about him, but didn’t have the time to worry.

Looks like next week will be the climax to Suzume’s part of the story.  We still haven’t gotten to the new material and higher animation quality.  Oh well, good things come to the people who wait.

RATING: 8/10 (solid buildup)
