Hey, how’s it going everyone? This is the Anime Man. Welcome to another episode of “WTF Japan”. This is a little series that I do where I show you guys and introduce you guys and talk about some stuff that will make you go “What the fuck, Japan?” Now today’s WTF Japan is yet again another anime series Because we can’t get enough of that good old shit from Japan, you know what I’m saying? Now look, everyone has their preferences as to whether they like a particular series Or whether the concept of a series really fits their needs or fits their interests There are some anime series that people absolutely love, while there are some other anime series that aren’t so much popular in the mainstream sense And look, I’m usually quite open to different kinds of anime series Sure, I understand that some things may not be for me and Other things are for other people, but there is one particular series that I’d like to talk about today Which I believe is one of the cringiest anime series ever made. And that is a little series called, Makura no Danshi If I were to explain this 12 episode, 5 minute short series in one word It would be Cringefest Makura no Danshi, or pillow boys as it’s called in English Is a reverse–harem slice-of-life anime where the concept is revolved around you getting to sleep and interact with bishounens, or really feminine, really nice-looking boys or as I like to call them, BOYS WITH PUSSIES It’s for girls who are so lonely to the point where they have to try and listen in and interact with A 2D character on screen. What? Now you might be asking Joey, what kind of boys are there in this anime? Like is it just your regular bishounens? Or like is there everything to cater for different needs? Well, I’m glad that you probably didn’t ask. For each of the 12 episodes, there is a Different boy that you can interact with and I’m guessing they did that so that they could cater to all sorts of different hobbies or like also the different interests that girls find in different boys. They got every type of boy from your typical high school bishie and your local businessman who’s a little bit rough around the edges To a slightly royal pompous dickhead and even a tiny little five-year-old that you- Huh, what? What you need is a fucking kick in the face Great! Now I’m lonely AND get to feel like a pedophile. Good work Japan! Seriously though this anime is kinda cringy because it kind of reminded me of Dora the Explorer Because there’ll be at least literally one character talking on the screen, and they would ask you a question to the screen, which is obviously directed at whoever’s watching, us the audience, but they leave pauses within the character so that you have enough time to respond back to the dude Oh my God I had a terrible day today seriously listen like I you know my boss is just being absolutely terrible to me and I don’t know what to do and-and one of the co-workers is just such a fucking bitch And seriously I don’t know what– Motherfucker stop interrupting me. This is literally, Dora the explorer, but for super lonely girls Why Japan… I think the most awkward thing about this series though is when You’re really not into the anime like I was, like I didn’t proactively go and watch this entire series Yes, I did go watch this entire series for FIRST HAND research purposes I sacrifice myself for you guys sometimes Like when you’re watching the series And you’re not like that into it to the point where you can’t be fucked to like respond back to the characters It’s super awkward because it’s literally five minute episodes of just this character talking to himself on screen It’s like they took an anime series But they cut out every other characters dialogue from the series and just only included that one character It’s… it’s kind of off-putting to be honest. Now look, don’t get me wrong, I completely understand that this series is not for everybody. You know, it’s obviously not for people like me It’s obviously not for people who are probably boys who are interested in girls. You know this is for solely for girls It’s a reverse harem, so it’s solely for girls And it’s solely for the girls who are feeling a little bit lonely Now if you’re one of those girls who feels so lonely That they have to watch this anime to make themselves feel, you know, a little bit better during the day I’m not saying that that’s a bad thing for you guys, but if you’re so lonely to the point where you have to watch this… Cringe-ass anime like Dora-the-Explorer-for-high-school-girls kind of anime I don’t know what to tell you… Maybe get a cat? Or 50? One of the things that really makes this the cringiest anime for me is just the fact that it’s so… lonely like um it’s really funny because It’s made to kind of cure the loneliness for girls who were just trying to look for some comfort But it doesn’t really work when the series itself Is really lonely so I award Makura no Danshi, not only the award for the cringiest anime in the world, but also the loneliest anime in the world But seriously, What the fuck, Japan? You guys let me know in the comments below, have you seen Makura no Danshi? Do you want to see Makura no Danshi?
