Room 208

Elaborate Burn

Remember when SHAFT was constantly running out of money because its staff was seemingly constantly spending it on drugs? Ever since Madoka, it’s been looking like that version of the studio was on its way out. The first episode of Sasami-san@Ganbaranai tells us a different story, though. Turns out the recent lack of hallucination-grade trip material hasn’t been because SHAFT’s kicked its habit – it’s just been saving its cash so that it can buy even more drugs, at bulk prices.
