With some fun with kappa’s at the start, Ai Mai Mi does some old school style storytelling here which is rather amusing. Showing us a feudal style period folktale with Mi, we see her coming into some money and going on a journey, feeling unloved. With that mindset, she takes the money and runs, but just so she can come back in the middle of the night for her goofy style of revenge. Not surprising when it comes to Mi, things don’t go quite as she had hoped, though she puts in the effort in a way you don’t often see with her. It has some odd twists, such as a horse-Mai that shows up, but it does manage to make you laugh a bit.
Ai Mai Mi continues to be a series that’s just about throwing things at the wall, seeing what sticks and moving on to something else after that. Going a little old school here with a folktale story that’s animated with a blending of what we get with the show normally and the paper-like aspect of it and chalk coloring, seeing Mi dealing with being unloved, getting revenge and coping with the surreal things that live in and around the first has some decent bits to it, especially since it’s not quite so frenetic as usual. It’s still not a good laugh or consistent in a way some other short form series are though and that continues to hamper things here.
