How To Mess Up A “Marriage Interview” demonstrated by Omiai Aite wa Oshiego, Tsuyokina, Mondaiji Episode 1.

This episode was three minutes long! Why was it so short! An issue with using short episodes is that you don’t get the time to be involved in the world and you find that you really don’t care about the show at all. Whatever premise there might have been is just squandered because they don’t have enough time to flesh it out. Unfortunately the premise wasn’t that good either.

We open with a grown woman going for a marriage interview. I have no idea why this is a thing since it’s going to be pretty difficult to decide whether you want to spend the rest of your life with someone in a quick 30 minute Q&A where you have to advertise yourself as well. And of course the marriage interview is a great success and they hit it off hooking up by the end of the night.

We then have the shocking realisation that the new person she’s going to marry is one of her students, and she doesn’t seem to want to break it off.

This was the plot of the entire episode and you can see why I don’t really like it. Nothing interesting enough happens to make it worth continuing.

When you enter a marriage interview I’d assume that you’d have a lot of information beforehand to make the selection process as easy as possible. So what’s up with her knowing nothing about the guys’ age, school or anything! How do you mess up the selection process this badly? She just liked the look of the guy and thought “I’ll just wait until later to make up my mind”.

The bland personalities of both characters also make them completely unbelievable and untreatable too. I get the impression that even if you could relate to people on either side you wouldn’t appreciate it because it will never explore the real issues of anything to do with the subject.

I can’t really work out what kind of show this is meant to be. Is It can’t be a romance show because there isn’t really enough emotion besides lust and it’s not a dirty show either because they censor everything.

I will not be keeping up with this; the only potential redeeming qualities is the artwork which has an art style I don’t really like. But oh well, it’s early days in the anime season so I hope it gets better than this! See you next time, I won’t be keeping any consistent schedule for this season and just posting whenever a show captures my interest so see you then
