Y’know how Anime Boys will sometimes enter an Anime Girls’ bedroom and he’ll accidentally see her in her bra and panties?
The anime girl will usually become flustered, scream really loud, and generally become very pissed off. Sometimes she’ll straight up slug the guy– and the poor anime boy is left wondering to himself: “What did I do to warrant that kind of reaction?! It Was An Accident!!”
After all, it’s not like he saw her Naked or anything. It’s just panties, so what’s the big deal? How is it different from seeing her in a bikini? That anime boy doesn’t deserve that kind of abuse!! Why is she even holding a grudge? Why is she so MAD??
If you haven’t heard of Milpom★(Milpom or Milpom Star, either one seems to be correct), it’s a currently airing, stop-motionONA that follows the comedic exploits of four fashionable girls living in a world in which wearing animal mascot heads is considered the norm.
Characters from left to right: Happy, Milpom, Silky, & Cacao
Even if you find that synopsis and above image deeply off-putting, I hope you’ll still join me under the cut as I briefly cover the first two episodes and my initial first impressions of the series’ pilot. (Consider this a three-part piece for the price of one blog post!)
