I gotta say after watching this I'm going to definitely miss these characters. We need more leads like Watashi and Y. They don't have to be sardonic on the inside and sweet on the outside but cleverness and rag-tag bonding is nice nonetheless.

After special 01 though, Watashi's intelligence is definitely not as high as I'd like...

After special 02, her grandfather's intelligence is also called into question.

Anyone know if there is special 3? It's so sad for 'Watashi' having that bad end....

I missed 'Watashi' so much. I probably will rewatch the whole series again just for her...

Probably once the subbers get a good quality raw, and/or don't have RL issues to deal with.

Well, I'm late to the party. :P

I watched two episodes before, but then got sidetracked by other things...
Finally decided to just start over and rewatch, and so far I've watched the first two episodes again.

I'm glad I come to this forum to read up on people's thoughts after watching each episode, because I really would've missed the social commentary (well, the obscure parts anyways). Ironically, as I'm supposed to be good at this (I'm planning on taking English Literature as a major in university...

So whoever commented in this thread back then when the episodes came out, thanks a lot!

I've looked down some info on the japanese wiki and found out that the arc from specials is actually from the 2nd volume of novels.
人間さんの、じゃくにくきょうしょく (The Humans' Law of the Jungle)
The 3rd one is out BTW.

I recently watched the entire series and it's easily one of my favorite anime. I'm just sad that the season had to end.

I loved watashi's "If that helps you sleep at night". We NEED a second season!

Sales are probably good enough but there doesn't seem to be quite enough source material yet.

Source material? I'd be happy with 'Cooking With Watashi'

24 minutes of Watashi cooking various dishes and sweets, with the fairies providing the cooking ingredients and utensils. It'd be like a one girl Iron Chef, but so much more awesome. Bizarre possibly sentient ingredients, non-euclidean plates, heck the colander is probably Turing complete. Just listening to Mai Nakahara snark and deadpan away as Watashi would be plenty.

With this information the number of animated volumes is ~4.5, and the number of volumes that weren't animated is ~2.5. We need to wait at least 2 volumes until we can possibly get another season (volume 7 was released on 23.07.2012).

But the author has produced a little more than one novel per year, so we would require a little more than two years for a second season? Everyone in favor of throwing the author into a prison cell until he produces enough material rise your pitchfork and torches!

Special 4...

Evil Weasels, Brutal Novel Judging, Frog Raincoats, and Fabulous Fairies.

Yep, typical episode of Jinrui, but it was too freaking short. It reminds
me of how much I love this show, but a 2 minute clip leaves one unfulfilled.

Well, the specials ended on a good note. Watashi returned to her normal size, but is still missing some brain matter, given that the number on the spoon is lower than it originally was.

For two-minute shorts, they were quite entertaining.

For some reason, I couldn't find Special 6. And so I thought that Watashi had a bad end at the end of 5.

That she is still missing some intelligence is quite alarming, since most people in the village depend on her. Which reminds me, which novel do these shorts come from again?
