Hidden God #05 — Requiem for the Rapist

February 4th, 2010

 

About damned time.

Impressions:

I understand finally. The moon’s not tinged red, it’s actually a giant orange floating in the sky. All the werevampires in the city worship the great lunar orange god and must eat stupid little boys in order to appease its citric bloodlust. All hail the orange god. Bringer of vitamin C. Enemy of scurvy. Bringer of the good aspects of the flooding of the Nile.

Issei hunting stupidface was actually not too bad, but then they ruined it by Issei’s woman showing up and just being extremely confused about her man being wrapped around a little boy and grunting incoherently. "Oh, but he kissed me. He must have been okay." At least he’s finally dead. That’s the important thing. Maybe they can finally get around to the scene that they started the bloody show with. Why does Stupidface even care that Issei is dead? Over 50% of their encounters involved Issei attempting to rape him. Oh no! Now I won’t be raped! How terrible!

I do wish they would make these werevampires out to be at least a little more evil, or maybe the hunter-killer wolves more incompetent. Maybe if one of them went on an actual killing spree, or did something aside from screaming like a megalomaniac before being cut down by a 4 foot girl, the whole werevampire thing would have a little more menace. Thus far, all we’ve really seen them do is kiss people, grope little boys, run around, and die. JCStaff’s damn frogs fill me with more dread than this show’s monsters. It doesn’t help that they all get delusions of grandeur right before they die either. They could at least grant us the illusion that Nemuru’s whole execution squad is as evil as the indistinct werevampires. Then maybe this could aspire to all the compelling drama and intrigue of Twilight! Wouldn’t that be a hoot.

Preview:

Oh? Someone actually fights back for once?

  • sage says:

    No more gay rape? I guess I should pick this show up again.

    ..What, it still sucks?
    hurrrrrrr

  • Thatguy says:

    Best part was the movie commercial with the dogs.

  • Rawr says:

    I think the show would be better if a killer wasn’t a 4 foot tall little girl. I understand she’s supposed to be death, and all, but still, it’s hard for a little girl to inspire fear of any sort.

  • Albedo says:

    Now we just have a few more episodes until we get to see Isuzu turn rapist!

    Yay heterosexual themes!

  • Fate says:

    I always knew that kissing women could result in death.

    Also HSV1.
