Um I don’t remember signing up for pysch class…

What in tarnation is wrong with anime nowadays? Not only is there a whole bunch of harem anime that are pointless and stupid, there seems to be more than enough pretentious shows polluting the airwaves.

I started out with such high hopes for “Ghost Hound” then as the series progressed I became more disappointed. I have no complaints with the quality of the animation which is high but the plot is just too convoluted and cloaked in way too much psychobabble. Like a middle school student can just talk about a psych theory at the drop of a hat let alone understand such yappings about the id and the nature of
memory.

Plus the droning on and on about this and that theory was enough to make me scream. The show drags when this happens and it occurs every episode.

The show tries to end with a big flourish by focusing on a cult religion and how the spirits of the mountain and of the faux organic beings created in the locally-based lab team up to help quash these nutjobs – literally. It was too late for me at that point. I didn’t much care if Taro or his friends succeeded in saving the elementary school girl who gets possessed by an ancient God. Don’t ask.

Avoid this pretentious yawnfest if you can.

  1. Tell me about it! I’ll admit some of the anime I watched growing up in the 80s and 90s had kind of a soap opera feeling to them but they didn’t get all ‘psychotherapy’ and emo on us. I don’t know any kid that would talk like that, even in high school!
