Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita episodes 11 and 12 go back to when the main character was going to school.
Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita episode 11 shows when the main character first started going to school and was bullied. The bullying is all for different reasons as well. To test her to see if she is worthy of friendship, to keep her an outcast from the others, and just casual bullying of an outsider. The main character comes through it all wanting to be left alone and shunning attention from all. She finds out later though that no matter what has happened, she does not want to be alone. Through it all the main character would rather be with people than be alone. Even her robot friend is not enough to make her feel connected to others. The things she will put up with to not be alone are shown in the 12th episode. This seems to be a heavy handed attempt at showing that humans need to be around others, that robots can not be substitutes for human contact.
Be careful what you wish for is a common theme throughout Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita. Whatever someone wants throughout the show they get, but in the most inconvenient way. From the first episode when the needed food they got food, but it was not as good or nutrious as real food. Also it was food that they had to wonder about its origins even after they knew it came from a factory since it could be made from trash. It comes up in the other stories as well. In episode 11, the main character no longer wanted to be alone and a fairy heard her. Soon she had a crazy roommate obsessed with her and a whole club full of crazy friends.
In Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita episode 12 Y comes more into the spotlight and we get to see that her fascination with boy’s love came long before she started to make comics. It was not very surprising that she had a whole library of boy’s love books. It helps to explain why she was so quick to latch unto the comics later because she was already interested in the material. It just gave her a new outlet for her interest. It was weird to see Y taking an interest in history by looking into the fairie’s tea party. Y did not show any interest in it later with the Human Monument Project.
The girls from the Wild Rose Society showed an interesting range of obsession. From obsession with sin, hair, and all the way to obsession over a person. Except for curly these obsessions have been kept behind closed doors. The Wild Rose Society is an example of how people do not show what they are really like to other people. Do not take people at face value because it is easy to keep up an act for a while.
The main character took the girl’s secrets pretty well. I would not have been able to keep living with curly after hearing how it would be nice if my face was burned and I stayed with her. I would have been applying for a new room right away. Curly’s obsession was not really all that secret, since she did forge the main character’s signature. It was weird that they went to all the trouble of revealing all those secrets and then very little changed. Y even joined back up with the group after saying she was saving the main character from the group. Except for Curly none of them seemed dangerous, so why all that about saving the main character? Feels like it would be better not to know about these things though. Seeing all these girls for what they are is probably part of what made her so cynical later on. She is not nearly as cynical when she first gets to school as she is later.
