The laughs keep coming and they don’t stop coming when it comes to The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated!. Just like a seven-layer dip, there’s so much to this show to enjoy. Whether you’re enjoying the simmering plot of “Jahy getting mana crystals” or, like me, are fully here for the real plot of “Jahy tries to survive being in her late twenties on Earth”, there really is something here. And while the show is quite simple, it excels in its execution, squeezing laughs out of me like the last bit of ketchup in the bottle.
This fall brings passion projects by big-name creators, long-awaited adaptations, and some unexpected surprises!2021 Fall Premiere Digest — Anime Feminist
I’m adding a new anime to my roster for the Fall 2021: Resturant to Another 2, which is great because food & anime & I go hand in hand, don’t they?
On the other hand, Kai is also growing into a different role: that of being Kukuru’s potential romantic partner. It’s something that was definitely hinted at in the first half of the series, but is much more prominent here, especially towards the end of the episode. The music leans in hard on pitching them as the series’ lead partnership, and it wants you and I as viewers to do the same. Will it “pay off”? I don’t know. I don’t actually know if The aquatope on white sand will have any romance. I’m kind of hoping that it won’t, and will instead just let everyone be friends and lean on that as a catalyst for their own individual development.
One of the things I love about the slice of life genre is that it does take its time: there’s plot, but sometimes, that gets placed as foundation for moments and episodes like this, little character studies that break down certain aspects of Jahy and Jingu’s fraught relationship as villainous hero and heroic villain, at least from Jahy’s perspective. That’s certainly what I found as I was retooling this review.
Truth be told, I wasn’t expecting Fuuka to be reunited with Kukuru this soon – I had envisioned spending an episode or two with her back in Tokyo before her return. Still, having her back this soon, but with her and Kukuru’s workplace roles flipped, is interesting. Fuuka and Kukuru are now competent young women, but as this episode shows, they clearly need each other’s support to grow in their careers.
