Sabagebu! – Survival Game Club – Episode 8 Review 

Last Episode:

An extremely flat hunting gag, a gaggle of bishonens, and another epic faceoff against Momoka’s mama!

This Episode: 

This is me slapping the writers of this episode.
This is me slapping the writers of this episode.

– The triumphant return of Fried Chicken Lemon! Momoka has accepted a modeling job but she has to faceoff against the “Cameramen of Death”. They want nothing but to get a shot….of her panties……sigh……

– The Immaculate and Pure Women’s University Survival Game Circle face off against the Sabagebu club. Their sole mission is to….strip Maya with their bullets…..goddammit.

Thoughts:

Less than impressed this week as this episode was weak and lame. Stooping to boobs and panty jokes is the lowest form of anime comedy. I hate moe crap like Negima, so anything that reminds of it is automatically soured. Besides that these jokes are just lazy! I want the inventive set ups of the fake Buddhist monk or the barely controlled psychotic actions of Sonokawa’s mom, not these throw away gags! You can see these almost everywhere else, and the draw for Sabagebu! for me was the fact that it didn’t go there. It’s why Azumanga Daioh is so high on my anime comedies list! Managing to be funny without resorting to this is something to be lauded. I hope that this was just one slip up and the show doesn’t continue to travel down this path, because it would be extremely disappointing if it does.

Next: Episode 9!
