Much like the first, the second episode to arrive of Jintai will not be for everyone – yet forgetting those who don’t intend to watch the series anyways, this chapter is of a flavor certainly most exquisite for the rest.
Our cute yet serious heroine continues onward through the factory which she’s entered within our first meet – the oddity of the matter has already been established, and it simply grows in strangeness as her grandfather has apparently disappeared from the party. It’s assumed by the receptionist that he must have went to the restroom – though of course, that’s highly doubtful as the atmosphere feels more as if something is at work. The receptionist trots off to search for her grandfather – yet to not much shock, he goes missing as well.
And thus, our heroine now continues onward alone with her assistant – traveling through the factory as thoughts dwell on the peculiarity of it all. As was prevalent within the first, this second episode is so ravishingly fantastic in that the heroine’s narrations are much to love – she recites the adventure from her point of view, and any thoughts she has, we hear aloud. A reason this is so substantial in the case of Jintai is that she’s so straightforward, yet expressive, with what she says – one can grasp the personality and sentiment behind it all.
Of course, this also means skilled voice acting – the voice of our heroine is, aside from being so wonderfully representative of her feelings, cute as well, and generally very fitting of her person. Additionally, her direct attitude in handling anything, meaning how she doesn’t become overly dramatic, yet simply keeps calm and collected with any situation, is also a heavy showcase of her style – and a beautiful one as well as it also makes the viewer experiencing the animation feel akin to herself.
Indeed, aside from a refreshing contrast, it’s worth going so far as to say she’s even inspirational – not to mention, it’s also quite comical along the lines of wit and dry humor.
With all except her assistant having disappeared, our heroine was to have her fairy companion deconstruct and rebuild the factory – likely in order for everyone to regroup. However, the fairy required some sort of compensation in exchange – and unfortunately, our heroine decided to trust her eager assistant with this matter, who excitedly showed the fairy an incredibly grotesque and morbid picture book he’s made himself. Amusingly, this does nothing more than place the fairy in a state of depression – and so, our heroine is left to carry on physically.
Only going a short ways, our heroine is then separated from her assistant as she somehow finds herself atop a conveyor belt, her assistant on another, now resulting in that our leading female is all alone – and better yet, she’s being propelled at high speed towards what turns out to be, her death apparently. Or so did it seem – the end of the conveyor belt was a gristly fate of being minced by a mechanical contraption, although ever short of falling into it, something saved her.
Rather than dwell on the mystery of her survival however, this series is one of constant development – the heroine now finds herself within a dark space, yet one which actually has another human within, the manager of the factory’s operation. It turns out the two are already quite familiar with one another – yet regardless, that doesn’t keep our heroine from being brutal and unforgiving in her speech, utilizing some subtly delivered scare tactics, reminiscent to her devious methods of conversational information control from the first episode.
Ultimately, she settles on meeting “the higher ups” of the factory – a group who even the manager hasn’t met once in his life. Unafraid, our heroine heads forward to find the factory being spearheaded by a familiar abomination from last episode, a skinned chicken. Although our heroine isn’t very fluent in gobble, her fairy companion translates for her – then later provides her with megane which make the gibberish easily understood.
The chickens are awfully full of themselves – boasting their diabolical plans for destroying the feeble humans, and subsequently taking over the world, all of which being nothing our heroine takes too seriously.
In the end, she doesn’t have to anyways – her assistant arrives bursting through the room with his camera, and as he takes shots of footage sporadically, it’s presented as if it were some sort of politically driven massacre. And with that, the chickens are pushed to the edges of the village – where they fall, and finally, are eaten as is their greater destiny. Those who went missing are found once more – and fairies are restored control of their factory.
It’s something of a positive conclusion for our heroine and relevant parties, besides the chickens – and interestingly, she comes to learn who it was who saved her life and aided her stealthily on numerous occasion within the factory. Within the first episode, she utilized a suspicious hair growth spray to liven her mane back to full length – yet it seems to have also made her hair a sentient entity of its own, and one with ridiculous strength and abilities as well.
Another episode down, and Jintai is now only even more so brilliant, relaxing, and humorous in ways little known.
