Going Down The List: Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai!


Or PapaKiki for short. The English translation of the title is “Listen to Me, Girls. I Am Your Father!”, but that just makes me feel more guilty about having seen the show, and it inadvertently reminds me of Star Wars. Anyway, if I had a single-use magical card that would force everyone to believe me when I say “I only watched this show because I was new to anime and had no idea I was using”, I would probably use that card on PapaKiki. That’s how far out there this show is compared to other similar shows.

The premise is that a university student takes in his three nieces after their parents go missing in a plane accident. And unlike Usagi Drop, PapaKiki goes for the fetishes and fantasy immediately. Sure, the main character tries hard not to do any weird things to the girls, but that doesn’t stop him from getting into sexual situations with them anyway. As a self-insert character he’s actually kind of admirable in some ways (he does try to raise the girls to the best of his abilities), but the extremeness of the situation makes it weird nonetheless

And the side characters don’t make the show any better. The “otaku character” is a lolicon in the creepiest of ways, and the “silent beauty who secretly likes cute things” plays the role of the mother and the maternal instinct fantasy. And the womanising guy, well, he womanises. Fortunately, he doesn’t do it to the main girls, he’s not a lolicon, but it’s still kind of creepy when he talks about it so openly. Normally, these characters would not make me raise my eyebrows, but with this premise I feel like they’re breaking some very big taboos. You can see for yourself if you want to, but I don’t recommend the show to anyone who wants to remain comfortable.
