Houshin Engi - What Was Skipped 3

Episode 3 of Houshin Engi is probably the best of the lot. It's not high praise, but it is what it is. It still rushed things. It still introduced parts from later in the story entirely too early, but it didn't mangle anything too badly.

At least, that's how I saw it. Talking with some anime-only people (the few that still exist) led me to understand just how lost some people may have felt about certain things.

With its very blatant metaphors for sex and doggy style cockpits, it can be easy to miss that there is other stuff going on in this anime. Puberty is not just about sex.

There's also annoying adults and their rules to consider.

Sennin. Doshi. Sendo. Paopei.

Let's start!

Somewhat surprisingly, I saw this question pop up from a few people who were worrying their dirty minds were leading them astray.

The answer is yes, by the way. It was totally about sex.

See the full post for the slightly longer answer.
