I feel Missile Happy should have stayed as a one-shot (since the first chapter was pretty entertaining), not that it ever was a one shot….I think *shrugs* Because everything after chapter 1 is just stupid…gawd, there should be a limit to shojo insecurity and angst :/
[Note: I was in a bad mood and reading Missile Happy didn’t help to brighten my day so this post is pretty much just pure bitching on my end. Please don’t read if you like this series or have a thing against people bitching]
The main girl wins a trip for a one night stay at some hot springs (
I swear, there must be a law that says SHOJO HEROINES MUST WIN NIGHT STAY TO HOT SPRINGS FOR ANGST AND MISUNDERSTANDING TO HAPPEN!). In this chapter, the reason for her angst ( yeah, each chapter has its own angst source) is because her dude is studying to be a doctor and that means one day he’ll have to go off to medical school and leave her behind yadda yadda insecurity and not wanting to be away from her man blah blah. Well, that doesn’t stop her from going to some festival with him and having a good time. Until the unthinkable happens: a random girl trips and her boyfriend helps her because he’s not a dick. Well, that is just NOT right! HOW DARE HE HELP SOMEONE IN NEED! And main chick trips because there’s nothing there and it makes sense to trip over that it makes the scene more dramatic *shrugs* Her guy notices she too has fallen and goes over to help her out as well, because again, he’s not a dick. Um…he helped someone who fell down. I’m sorry if helping others is considered ethically wrong in your book… you stupid whore. In the TP version, the translation is: “I don’t want you to be nice to any girl except me!”
And no before you think I’m over reacting, read the whole page and the next one:
Someone fell down some stairs! Oh shit! The normal reaction would be to help that person right?
Um….really? Is now the best time to talk about your insecurities? Someone just fell down a flight of stairs. And you don’t want your boyfriend to help her? Your boyfriend – the one who is studying to be a doctor. The only one present who has enough medical knowledge to stop the drunken civilians from duct taping the injured person’s spine back together and telling her to walk it off. REALLY?
Really? Really? He can’t go help people because he’ll die like mom and dad? IF YOU’RE THAT WORRIED – GO WITH HIM TO HELP OUT! But no. Just STAND THERE and whine like a little bitch while everyone else is rushing over to help the poor girl :/ because it’s all about you :/ And because it’s all about her, the main girl leaves – despite her boyfriend telling her to wait for him while he calls for an ambulance (wow, way to contradict yourself! DON’T LEAVE ME ALL ALONE *she leaves instead* Me: o___o; whut?). So she wanders off to look for this stone rumored to grant one wish to a person. Because really, what else is there to do? Worry about that girl who fell down a story of stairs? Fuq dat shit. It’s all about the main chick ~
And as she’s crying about wanting to be with her boyfriend only, she finds the “stone.” Random scene of the cool older sister appearing and telling the main dude that the main girl has abandonment issues.
Yeah, I think we already got that established. Little late ma’am. Back to the main chick. Turns out the stone is the island itself? *shrugs* (don’t look at me) Well, that just means…
We gotta throw ourselves off this random cliff to get the wish granted!!!!!!!! Why? I HAVE NO FUCKING IDEA!!!!! THERE WAS NEVER ANY MENTION OF JUMPING OFF CLIFFS!!!!
I really think this girl might have some psychological problems. I mean, when you’re not even reacting to someone getting hurt, that’s just a little weird. And just walking away from it? Wow… And throwing yourself off a cliff? o___o; Double wow…
Someone has been reading too much Twilight. I feel this main character might become so obsessed with her man, she’d lose it and break the main dude’s legs so he could never leave her like in that Stephen King movie (Misery?). And yeah that’s it. Tired.
