Episode 4 of Sakamoto begins to show us that part of comedy I start to have trouble describing: Swagamoto continues to get weirder and his stories become vignettes. I both love and hate the show at times because as a viewer I don’t ever really feel bored, but as a reviewer I tend to go: So do the viewers need me to explain how Sakamoto drew Aina as a two faced image, both an orangutan as well as a girl, or should I simply tell them Sakamoto drew Aina in an ‘interesting’ way. The best way to describe and talk about Sakamoto is to spoil as many jokes as possible, but in doing so I rob you of the opportunity to see Sakamoto jump from a building with a Japanese Jellyfish warning in the background that this is not safe for home, meanwhile also explaining that Sakamoto wore his uniform during break and somehow managed to play a whack-the-hippo game in tune to Bach with his hands as if they were piano keys.
All in all, however, I love Sakamoto. He’s my favorite anime meme and probably always will be, and I find it amusing that his schemes become more and more ridiculous in order to emphasize: We’re not playing around here kids this guy really is beyond perfect. The best part is that there’s always a reason for what he does so everyone gets mad at him, only to be happy he is such a good person, then they sometimes even get annoyed again! The bullies hate them, then seem to be in love with him, then they team up, then he convinces them that bubbles are cooler than smoking because he can make bubbles in the shape of smoke. Sakamoto deserves the title Swagamoto because he does everything so weirdly but no one can argue because HE FUCKING EATS RICE IN THE MIDDLE OF CLASS SO HE CAN BE SENT TO THE HALL AND FEED IT TO A FUCKING RANDOM ASS DYING SPARROW.
WHY? I DON’T KNOW! HE JUST DOES THESE THINGS ! THIS IS HIS LIFE AND HIS CHOICES! I think one day he will run his own bird sanctuary, because he seems to do everything in his life for birds. You keep bein a bird hero, you glorious bastard. How can anyone hate him, he’s not even sexy bishounen on person unless it’s to sell hamburgers. Which, who can really argue with?
