Observations from episode 9 of Humanity Has Declined:
This was, hands down, the single best episode of anything so far this season, an exponent of what makes this show so great: the fairies’ absurd mix of cheer and darkness, our protagonist’s deadpan responses, and on-point satirical hits that just kept on coming. It’s a shame this appears to be a self-contained episode, because I could have easily seen it extending into a second. Come on, girl – you could have at least declared war on a neighboring island or something!
The fairies are leaders after my own image:
Protagonist: If you had your own nation, what would you do?
Fairy A: Taxation.
Fairy B: Oppression.
Fairy C: Suppression.
Fairy D: Persecution!
