Summer 2019 Anime: Official Twitter Hashtags & Pages
Summer is near, my dear friends, and our tablets and phones will need some extra space for all the amazing anime that are coming our way.
And yes, you guessed it right, Robi, Hachi and Ikku are still traveling across the galaxy; who would have known.
Robi and Hachi arrive at their next tourist destination (have I ever mentioned how the fact that planets are tourist traps is my absolute favorite part of this show? Well, I have now) which seems to be a huge amusement park. Last time I checked, I HATED AMUSEMENT PARKS. I’m pretty sure I still do. Boy, I’m in for a treat this week! Can you actually believe there’s sentient human beings who buy annual passes to these things?
The line to buy a regular pass is 300 minutes, and for the first damn time in this show I completely agree with what Robi is saying, and have said it myself on several occasions, ‘No, I’m not waiting in the goddamn line to get in’. You know these people who accidentally find themselves in really big busy places like Ibiza or Mykonos and just end up having a fag by the dumpsters drinking cheap beer CAUSE THEY DON’T WANNA WAIT IN THE DAMN LINE well, that’s me, minus the cheap beer. Where were we?
Hachi says he has another way to get them in. You’d think that in a futuristic shithole like this they could just buy tickets online but nooooo, Mr. FANCYPANTS has some sort of digital wristwatch ID that lets him in. Hachi, I can smell bougieness and mimosas at brunch all over you, cut the crap. Pretty close. He’s an online influencer so he gets to come in for free. NANDA-
So they’re in, and by Jove, this is the flattest art I have seen in anime backgrounds, maybe ever. Some chicks show up and start dancing and singing. Everything has already given me a migraine, then again this is not really an achievement. Just when I started wishing that at least the singing would stop Hachi joins in and Robi and Ikku are kind of forced to join. Why.
After a couple of instances where the dancing crowd seems a bit aggressive against Robi and Ikku’s moaning, Hachi thinks he should (finally) mention that any form of displeased behavior is illegal in the park. What the hell. I completely relate with Ikku during this episode. Hachi keeps dragging them around to see various attractions, and it all looks equally hellish to me. Every single ride is a real nightmare. It At this point it amazes me to what extent I had forgotten I hated amusement parks. Good episode.
Finally, we get to watch some lovely-fantastic couple parade thing where a king and queen will be selected. I have a strange feeling that at this point the show will use the competition as an opportunity to make some sort of ‘gay’ joke. In the midst of all that, Hachi loses Robi and Ikku. Needless to mention that he never seemed concerned about losing them ever before, but now he does. He goes to the child center and has them call Robi to collect him. Mrs Yang is there too, and he is hearing Robi being called.
Brief pause to appreciate that Hachi used to wear thigh high socks as a child.
Long story short, mr Yang finds them and hunts them around while climbing a castle. Of course, Robi and Hachi find themselves in the middle of the love ceremony and are made king and queen. WHO WOULD HAVE KNOWN.
Naturally, they escape right after that.
Stay away from amusement parks. As far as possible.
