Hello Spank!

Every time I think I have a handle on Japan something like this comes up. Better yet, this is a foreign language translation so…yeah. Apparently this cartoon (Hello Spank!) is about a short girl in junior high. Her father disappears on a boat, her mother abandons her to go make hats in Paris, and she’s left with her pedophile uncle. I made the pedophile part up (I think). And then to top it all off, her dog gets killed in a car accident. Then this Spank monster shows up. I guess it’s a look into a mind pushed way past it’s breaking point and desperately seeking to deal with the trauma that life has thrown at this poor little girl. Oh Japan, you’re silly.
