Machine-Doll wa Kizutsukanai Episode 1 Anime Review
Stronger than a speeding train!
I wish I had a doll like Yaya! Even her name is cute. Ah, she would make meals for me every day and we would go on walks together and have all sorts of adventure. Then I would do her hair when I’m bored and I can dress her up like she’s a giant doll. Because she is a giant doll. A cute, strong giant doll. This anime is like wish fulfillment for all fans of androids, because I feel like that’s what the puppets essentially are. They’re probably only called puppets because of the olden times setting where there’s like those olden trains and no electricity to make androids. There is magic though.
And besides, puppets are… actually kind of creepy. At least those in real life. I’ll continue to imagine Yaya is an android.
So, back to the anime. We have Raishin who has just entered an academy and wants to be the very best, like no one ever was. So, he battles other puppets and wins. It’s kind of a testament to Yaya’s strength as well since the others are so breakable.
Animation is beautiful here! I really loved all the fight scenes, and the train one! There’s definitely a mystery involving Raishin’s past, and from comments from the passer-bys we find out there’s not a lot of orientals in the city. Which is kind of weird. You would think that Japan of all people would have more representation in a android-ish academy.
And I really want that giant dragon too. Sigh… If only.. We could fly high in the sky and go terrorise little kids by swooping over them. Oh yes! I liked the variations in puppets too. They’re not all humans, since where would be the fun in that?
