When will anime directors figure out that it is not acceptable to make a 13-episode series 2/3 filler, and then try to jam a complex plot into the remaining episodes? SukiSho is yet another show that falls into such a trap, with dull filler overshadowing what could have been an interesting plot.

After the initial introduction of the mysteries going on in the series, everything is suddenly dropped in favor of the episodic, pointless “jack-of-all-trades” plotline. Although the plot involving Ran and Yoru is occasionally glanced upon, until the very end it mainly serves to provide yaoi fanservice and titillation.

It’s a shame, too, since there are hints of what could have been quite good in the end. There are the vestiges of psychological drama, which could have been interesting had it been given sufficient time to develop. The characters, too, show signs of having interesting personalities, but are wasted in the downright stupid filler episodes and hampered by useless side characters. Not even seiyuu greats like Midorikawa Hikaru or Koyasu Takehito could bring depth to the series.

The best way to describe Sukisho would be a waste: a waste of plot, a waste of characters, a waste of seiyuu… and most of all, a waste of time.
