Wonder Egg Priority #03 — Suicide Girls

There’s going to be a hole punch weapon girl, isn’t there?

Impressions:

This episode is a bit more of a mixed bag than the last two. For one, it’s a bit weird that they’re introducing some new girl to partner up with when the other ‘main’ one hasn’t even really had an episode for her yet. Whatever thought it was trying to get across with all the idol stuff is also pretty muddled and unclear. The new girl is a self-harming idol who had a super fan who bought her things, which she was fine with until she caught her stealing, so to get her to stop, she told her she hates fat people, which drove the girl to anorexia and death. I understand the guilt, but the girl had already gone of the rails before getting Harry and the Hendersons’ed. And then the episode ends with the monster of the week turning her to stone? I guess that means the story’s not over, but other than explaining the cutting herself, which I feel like guilt probably already covers it, I don’t know what else there is here. 

Meanwhile, the savees-of-the-week were two other superfans who killed themselves because their favorite idol killed herself. That certainly feeds the theory that they’re in some kind of purgatory, saving dead girls from hell. But the two girls here are stark raving lunatics, unrepentant for what they did, or even comprehending that they did anything wrong. They’re punchlines that are being mocked. It’s hard to muster up sympathy for them or belief that they can or even should be saved as they race straight to the monster in order to taunt it. Which the protagonists also do! Ha ha. You’re old and you like idols. What a disgusting freak. Totally not like these innocent girls who are different because they’re 16 instead of 40. Even aside from the weird hypocrisy, I question the wisdom of directly attacking some of your core base there.

Be civil. Don’t ask for games, raws, music, etc. Feel free to correct any mistakes I make, I’m far from perfect. Excessively rude or stupid comments will be mocked, edited, deleted, or all three.
