Ojisan To Marshmallow Episode 4 [Trip To The Marshmallow Factory!]

Yeah, this episode is pretty much the title I have here. Interestingly enough, there is no crazy chick this time. This episode is all about the fat guy and his love of marshmallows. I know, exciting, right? Either way I think it’s time I started.

So the episode begins with the fat guy at a tour of the marshmallow factory seeing how the stuff is made. The person giving the tour wonders who the guy is as it’s really a tour for kids, but doesn’t say anything.

Dude, seriously. There's better things to eat in this world than marshmallows

Apparently after the tour they each get to eat a freshly made marshmallow as well as getting a tiny bag that comes in different colors. The guy is very excited about getting the different colors and monologues about it for a while…it’s…kind of pointless.

Pff..who needs a plot like in GATE or World Trigger when you have DIFFERENT COLORED MARSHMALLOW BAGS?

He leaves after the tour is over and the tour guide asks her coworker who the guy was and she responds that he’s the “fairy” of their factory and comes all the time to take the tour and she wishes that more people were as into marshmallows as he is.

Wow...exciting episode, right?

And that’s where the episode ends.

This by far was the episode in which the least happened. Since the creepy girl wasn’t in it (which i’m not saying is a terrible thing really) there was really no conflict and it was about a dude visiting a marshmallow factory. There’s not really any…story to tell here. He goes, it’s kind of weird…that’s it.

It’s hard to review this episode because it would be like me reviewing one of my readers going to 7-11 to get a slurpee. How do you review that?

I mean, the whole episode kind of had a mellow feeling to it, but it has no substance to really take home. It’s one of those episodes that you forget about 5 minutes after you watch it. Nothing leaves a lasting impression on you and it’s kind of just….there. It’s not bad, it’s not good, it’s just…there.

As interesting as an episode about a guy liking marshmallows can be.

If you’re watching this show for the whole creepy romance story, then you can obviously skip this one as it has nothing to do with it. All you’re really going to learn is that this guy really REALLY likes marshmallows, but from episodes 1-3…you already knew that. So…yeah….pointless, but at least it wasn’t offensive or bad….so..

5/10

Even and boring score. That’s what this episode deserves. Oh well, maybe next time will be interesting.
