Greetings. The Overlord Bear has returned with a reflection on another episode of…
Now, say hello to the sixth episode of Mekakucity Actors: Headphone Actor!
Before I start with the reflection, here are some links related to the episode’s namesake, here are some links: a link to the original NND upload of the Headphone Actor MV, and a link to vgperson’s translation of the song’s lyrics.
Now that the links have been shown…it’s time to introduce a character.
Maybe I should call this some sort of reintroduction, ’cause this girl is here is actually Ene…before she became Ene…Well, that’ll be explained further later on, but anyway…
So, here, we have Takane Enomoto, one of the two students in the Special Needs Class (As for why she is in said class, you can find information about it–which wasn’t mentioned in the anime but was mentioned in the second light novel–here.).
Thanks to their homeroom teacher, Kenjirou Tateyama, telling the principal that his class had prepared a Special Project for their school’s cultural festival, the Special Needs Class is supposed to be making something for said festival.
As you can see in the above photo, the Special Needs Class was not supposed to do anything for the cultural festival…I guess Takane thinks they shouldn’t be doing anything for the cultural festival because they’re the Special Needs Class, but seriously, I don’t think they’re useless.
YOU’RE UNDERESTIMATING YOUR CLASS, TAKANE ENOMOTO!
Looks like it’s time to go into high-energy mode. Brain, play some rock music.
After some moments of hesitation from Takane and despair from Tateyama-sensei…
Honestly, for me, being a winner of some gaming tournament matters less than doing my best and having fun with playing the game. Also, MMOs aren’t that appealing to me. It looked really cool for me back then, but meh, it ended up becoming something hassling. Playing a game with small groups feels better.
By the way, Takane, so you can shoot zombies down really well, huh? Humanity will need good aiming skills in case of a zombie apocalypse. Also, combined with a proper moral sense, you can defend yourself from attackers without killing them! Why not try to be a morally upright Super High School Level Gunner, Takane Enomoto?
Okay, forget that joke Hope’s Peak Academy invitation, Takane. Let’s move on to a more serious topic, which is your self-deprecation issues.
Ah, and I’ll be leaving the support to Haruka. My support can’t actually reach your zone, you see.
Ah, gaming can be a good way to form friendships. Freaking awesome! See, Takane, there’s at least one person who’d support you even if your interests are like that! Throw away your annoying self-deprecation, Takane! Also, thank you very much for your support, too, Haruka!
Oh, and one more thing you shouldn’t forget:
And now, here are some rewards for your awesomeness in this episode, Takane!
With that, I end my reflection on the sixth episode of Mekakucity Actors.
