Moshidora 03: Minami Discovers the Art of Manipul- I mean Delegation
“Will you be the hero of legend I’ve always dreamed of?”
“YOUR WISH IS MY COMMAND, YUKI OJOU-SAMA.”
…for the rest of the day. By herself.
“I wonder who else I can
“I’m gonna make you a star, sweetcheeks.”
Oh God Minami is hilarious.
By the way, I may have exaggerated things slightly with my captioning, but this is what Manami actually did. It’s all in accordance with Management.
“The manager’s aim is to enable people to utilize their strengths fully. The objective of the organization is to find their strengths and neutralize their weaknesses.”
Which is another way of saying:
“Since Ayano is so good with statistics and paperwork, she should do all the organizing and the rest of us should stay out of her way. And since we need a ball-picker, and I’m not going to waste a team member on that, we should just grab a random talentless girl and get her to do it.”
Okay, that’s mean-spirited. But I facepalmed when I saw what Minami recruited the new girl to do. After giggling inappropriately, of course.
As it turns out, Minami’s powers of ‘management’ have gained quite the reputation.
Probably the most unrealistic thing in the story so far, apart from successfully convincing a hot delinquent girl that her goal in life should be picking up baseballs.
It’s Episode 3! And I’m still managing to churn these posts out night after night. The good thing about Moshidora is that it’s good slice-of-life . I can watch it without having to expend brainpower on convoluted plotlines or impractically-layered mind games.
The bad thing about Moshidora is that it’s good-slice-of-life. I have practically nothing funny/dramatic/intense to talk about. Production I.G has defied my expectations by successfully mashing management theory and high school life together. Unfortunately, this means that the end result is as interesting to talk about as it is to actually study management theory in real life.
Which is why I’m latching on to the few truly out-there scenes for something to write about. And fervently praying that the chapter on CG scene employee incentives comes soon.
Well it’s not like they’re not trying, but this is probably the first time I’m actually wishing for fanservice. Genki girl Minami fanservice. Especially since she’s voiced by Hiyocchi.
