Boys Love + Magical Girl Setting = Best Show? Really?

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 12.51.28 AM

The West family watches Handsome Highschool Defense Club LOVE! on TV.

Alex: Is every joke in this show just “we are going to acknowledge how silly we are and yet we’re doing the silliness anyways?”

Michael: That’s a pretty abstract way of looking at it.

Alex: And exactly what deeper meaning is there to the jokes?

Michael: They’re being silly about how they’re BL-loving males in a magical girl setting.

Alex: And exactly how is being a BL-loving male in a magical girl setting supposed to be funny?

*A sexual innuendo appears on the screen and Michael laughs, disrupting the conversation*

*The show proceeds to comment on said sexual innuendo, causing Alex to groan*

Lain: So these boys are supposed to be autistic, right?

  1. A hah. This is one of those moment where I totally agree with you, mr. flawfinder.

    This show is no way in hell a good show, and I can’t fathom the positive responses it got online.

    The reason is, like you said, the characters know that what they are about to do is very stupid, yet they still do it? How is this funny? Am I supposed to laugh? This is just stupid and doesn’t worth my time.

    Dropped.

    A good comedy is, when the character doesn’t think he has done anything wrong. Mr. Bean is a very good example of this. It’s still my favorite show, all this time.
