What I have to say about Jinrui has mostly been said in my series review for it. The score doesn’t give it justice, however, as it’s an easy 90 but things like character development and the handling of the narrative weren’t pitch perfect. It’s how vividly I remember this series after a few months, when I tend to forget a show a few weeks after it aired. It’s wildly creative, full of snark and wit and has the best ending theme song of the year (now you all know what my #1 ED song is). I didn’t just watch this show, I experienced it and it was a very lucid, surreal experience. If you can’t even laugh at the tiny little fairy who put narcotics in a flower pot and then proceeded to pee himself, I don’t know what to say to you. I can definitely say this is not a show meant for just anyone, hence the title of the post. But even if you can’t appreciate all of what this show offers, there’s one thing I hope everyone can understand: the social commentary. The first episode was pretty much a big middle finger to McDonalds and other fast food places, with how the boss of the Fairy Co. factory having no idea what his job is all about, just being in it for the huge paycheck which reminds me of how overpaid the chancellors of the University of California system are and how little they even do. Yes, it’s somewhat political but we’re all at the age when we ought to start being more aware about these kinds of issues and Jinrui is the perfect show to get a SparkNotes-like version of these issues. But the tone of the commentary is always humorous and light, it never gets too preachy or political but just enough to make you think while being grossed out (at the processed food) and laughing like crazy at the same time. That, my friends, is the magic of Jinrui.
