Kami-sama Dolls, Darker Than it Looks?

Posted by Neko Kyou in Thoughts on July 23rd, 2011

Despite it’s bright and happy looking poster, Kami-sama Dolls might actually be darker than it looks. Just a few minutes into the first episode and the main character finds a bloody corpse in the elevator. If that wasn’t hint enough, it seems that while he was surprised to see a dead body suddenly appear before him, he was rather calm about it.

There seems to be a greater, darker secret that’s spinning the plot wheel from behind the scenes, one that has been set in motion long ago. The prologue suggested that something was triggered by the main character Kyohei, his sister and Aki that caused massive destruction. Kyohei and Aki also seems to have a bloody past, where Aki massacred the villagers and Kyohei tried to stop him.

It would be interesting to watch the story unfold and why past events are suddenly affecting the present. Aki doesn’t appear to be out for revenge despite his aggressive behavior towards Kyohei. There is definitely something else that is either happening, or will happen soon.

If you’re in the mood for a potentially dark and bloody anime that’s not too serious (at least not yet), Kami-sama Dolls might be just the one for this season.
