Mikan Watch #98: Monster Musume

From episode 9 of Monster Musume (or, Everyday Life with Monster Girls, if you will), is something that I probably should have posted about over a month ago on the evening when I actually watched the episode, when it was still a relevant thing to point out.

From volume 5 of the Witchcraft Works manga. It didn’t make the anime version, alas.


Hackadoll is the Secret Best WUG Anime

Well, maybe not, though most of my exposure to the IP as a whole comes from the fact that I apparently know way too many WUGners.

Hackadoll is kind of a weird one. Anime based upon mobile, Free-to-play games are not an uncommon commodity. There’s money in F2P games, but the issue with all those games is in user turn-over. Flashy adverts attracting niche audiences, particularly ones with fluid disposable income, is kind of an important part of the life-cycle of these things, as they require the attention of a constant stream of new players to sustain themselves, and that’s why things like Rage of Bahamut: Genesis end up existing.

I’m not sure if this is a win or not…

I mean, it’s a perfectly nice image of Diana – the beginning of an effects shot even – but then some jerk goes and gets a nice frame of Akko and Lotte and I start pondering my lack of luck with these random pack-in things.

But, hey, I didn’t even realise this was coming with a genga until yesterday morning, so I probably shouldn’t complain, and at least it’s not Candle Tier.

I have to say, Ren-chon has really, really sharp taste in sweaters.
