Helter Skelter Episode 2


Jun 26, 2024

Okay, buckle up for Helter Skelter Episode 2: Murky Village, where the family vacation is about as relaxing as a hippo in a hot tub. This episode is like someone mixed a school trip gone wrong with a really messed up game of capture the flag.

So, last time, our poor main girl (I'm gonna call her Yuki, because trying to keep track of all these names is like herding cats) got a front row seat to the most inappropriate festival EVER. This ain't no pie eating contest, folks, think more along the lines of a whole town trying to "devour" her mom and sister... yeah, use your imagination, it ain't pretty.

Yuki's freaking out (understandably!) but Mr. Shady Pants from the inn (who knew innkeepers could be so creepy?) is like, "Nope, totally normal, come see!" *insert eyeroll here*. He basically tells Yuki they got tricked, and this whole vacation was just a way to get them to be the, uh, "guests of honor" in this "Hunting Festival". I swear, these villagers need a new dictionary.

Now Yuki has to make a choice: run away and hope for the best (like a chicken with its head cut off, probably), orโ€ฆ become a "Shishigami" too. Yeah, I don't know what it means either, but it involves a LOT of uncomfortable situations with a portable shrine. Let's just say, it makes being stuffed in a locker look like a walk in the park.

And if you thought that was bad, just wait! This episode is like a clown car, just when you think it can't get worse, BAM, out pops another layer of awkward. Just imagine a school uniform, some overly enthusiastic "fans", and enough innuendo to make a sailor blush.

Poor Yuki's stuck in a twisted game she didn't sign up for, and the ending? Well, let's just say it's the kind of "happy" ending that leaves you scratching your head and feeling kinda icky. It's like they tried to put a band-aid on a broken leg. The family's reunited, sure, but something tells me they'll be needing a LOT of therapy after this.
