Wait - I thought Okada Mari was Head of Trap Development?
using breastfeeding for fanservice purposes is pretty lame). I just find it quite irritating to see this series painted as something more (or less) than what it is. I don't think it's brilliant, or a statement about female empowerment, or visually revelatory, or great. It's just a puerile Saturday-morning cartoon with a lot of incredibly sexist overtones and toilet humor. The fact that it has guys who've produced brilliant anime in the past behind it doesn't confer brilliance on this one - these are also (mostly) the guys who produced Panty & Stocking, and that was with a sizable budget.
Inoue Marina's hilariously unhinged performance as Head of Trap Development Oogure Maiko. There were some standout comedic moments, but they were honestly just incredibly stupid gags that worked - like the bit the Mako, the cheese and the pie-trap. And boy, did it look cheap. I guess you can look at legendary animators like Sushio and Imaishi working like this as a sad spectacle, or as a fascinating exercise - for me the result is a show that's intermittently stylish and shockingly crude (visually I mean, though the other usage also fits). The main thing I'm looking forward to now is the arrival of Jakuzure Nonon as a major character, because this will be an extremely rare anime appearance for Shintani Mayumi, who was Haruko in FLCL. Content-wise I'm honestly not expecting any improvement, though I suppose there's always the possibility that Nakashima will salvage this mess.
