World Fool News Part II


Takahashi is transferred to a main anchor of a news program, which is known for being a little...weird. This is a comedy about somewhat ridiculous happenings occurring at a broadcasting station.


So this is one I never expected to receive a second season, and like the first season, I suspect only those with refined tastes will enjoy this. Yes, sarcasm. It's 10 minutes of dry absurdity. So dry, you'd need a full stick of butter to grease that wheel.

But to start with, we have a new weather forecaster. At first it was funny but by the end of her report, I was almost in tears. And a new villain? And a cliff-hanger to boot.

Didn't watch the first season at all (had never heard of it, in fact) but I quite enjoyed episode 1 of season 2. Fun stuff.

Hey yngvarr. You might be the only person watching Heybot , but you will not be the only one watching World Fool News. I enjoyed the first season, and I can already tell I will enjoy the second one too.

I think I would like an Umeki-san weather app.

Season 2 seems to be bringing the A game. I hope it remains strong through the whole season.

Episode #3 was f'in hilarious and yet heartwarming too. I'm sure a lot of people are sleeping on it due to it's unique visual style but it's easily one of the best shows out there this season, especially if you're at all familiar with typical Japanese style television productions.

Have to say I was kind of missing the weirder things that the female newscaster says, but her equating the law of entropy with fevers really took the cake for me.

Ha ha ha ha. In a season where it seems everyone is doing recaps after just a few episodes, World Fool News is too.

Sigh.

Also not sure if I should be amused or annoyed that in the frame story centered on a "Girl Talk" event, the one doing the most talking is a man.

It feels really odd when a short does recap. I figured they could have some interesting conversations about sukiyaki if Shimohira was let loose.
