The Beauty in Dying Underwear

July 22, 2008

So I’ve watched the final episode of Magikano.

It was interesting. I like the whole magical action and the battles and everything but it came to this one part that just astonished me. I watched that certain part with a face that said, “What?“. See, what happened was, Ayumi entered the magic sphere that Haruo was creating and Haruo threw rocks at her. Yes, rocks. So her Neko panties helped her out by shooting beams of magic at them. But wait. There’s more. 😀

Haruo a.k.a. the Demon Lord then decided to throw a gigantic boulder at her. Ayumi, after a flash of magic, realized that she was still alive and the massive rock has disintegrated. She realized that it was the Neko panties she was wearing that saved her when the said ripped up underwear started slipping down her legs.

Then they had a touching moment -Ayumi and the dying Neko panties slipping down her legs. The underwear commented on how Ayumi never liked wearing him anyway and Ayumi disagreed with him. So the Neko panties just laughs and says in a sad tone how easily he came off before he finally slips off her legs, falls a bit into the oblivion below and bursts into flames.

Now, watching it happen on the TV with the whiny voices of the English dubbing, it would look a bit comical and it’s something you’d say, “What the hell?” to. But I’m a person who likes finding the deeper meanings in the things in life (be it my paranoid nature or something special), so I want you to think about it. Better yet, actually watch the series first. Sure a pair of undies might seem like something you wouldn’t take seriously but if you go over it in your head, it was a sad thing, watching it die just like that.

See, Ayumi and the Neko panties shared a special ‘bond’ between them. Something in a less literal meaning, obviously. No matter how much they bickered in the past Ayumi still agreed to put on the Neko panties before going into battle -protest or no because she trusts that he will be there to actually help and he did help her. In fact, he saved her life in exchange for his own. He protected her.

  • It’s the beauty of self-sacrifice in the midst of something people take for granted.

What’s more, he made Ayumi realize that while the Neko panties didn’t really want anything else but to be able to be there to help her, to save her, she felt the same way for Haruo. The Neko panties didn’t even care about dying if it meant he would be able to save Ayumi. The underwear made her realize that she herself didn’t care about anything else but saving Haruo.

  • It’s the beauty of desperation.

Maybe you might not think the same way I am right now. You might not agree and say that it was nothing but a comical scene with destroyed underwear and a girl talking to it. But even so, it gave me something to contemplate about. It gave me and probably other people like me the chance to find a deeper meaning in something we can all laugh at. It made me find beauty in the little, amusing things in life.
