Centaur no Nayami Episode 5 Review

4 comments

We pick up from where we left off in episode 4: Quetzalcoatl Sassassul the transfer student is introduced and people aren’t sure how to treat her.

(Spoilers in this review

The first part has Saus-chan/Sauce-chan scaring Himeno after attempting to smile. Himeno faints only to wake up in a hospital bed. Himeno reveals to Nozomi and Kyouko that she’s scared of Antarcticans because of a scary movie she saw as a kid (where a snake monster swallows up a centaur heroine and pretends to be like her by wearing her skin). Sauce-chan tries to makes amends, finds out about said movie, and then watches the movie along with Himeno (who is told to rewatch it in order to overcome her trauma). Sauce-chan then asks to be their friend (and freaks out Himeno again with her “smile.”

Part two has the others asking Sauce-chan some very personal and insensitive questions. Sauce-chan then sees a television report where people speculate that an Antarctican UFO bombed a ship, which makes her feel at danger for mistreatment (and thus she wears a burglar mask when she goes to hang out with the other girls). They then have a fun day together.

The show really pushes this inequality and anti-discrimination theme very far. I guess an ideal world would feature people who don’t make mean and derogatory comments and questions, yet I just find this show to be patronizing and tiresome. I’m dropping this show, basically. At least I won’t be reviewing it every week, I mean. I don’t watch anime to be lectured about discrimination. Maybe I’m overreacting but I unfortunately find Centaur no Nayami to be a dull show. I don’t know if I’ll even review this series once it ends. Sorry, folks.

  1. I was kind of hoping this show might do something meaningful with the theme of discrimination but from this it clearly seems like they are happy just to keep hitting you over the head with the idea of it rather than saying anything of note. Kind of glad I passed on this after trying a bit of episode 1. I was thinking I’d get back to it, but that probably isn’t going to happen if this is the path it is going down.

  2. Wow, you got really fed up with this, hm? Can’t blame ya. I hate discrimination as much as the next sensible person but I bet it’s not fun to have a show that just throws it at you without dong anything good with it.
