Keima, stop being an imbecile.
A fairly awful episode, which I have been informed was only marginally better in the original because it took about 3 minutes to read instead of 22 minutes to watch. And that it’s a one-shot deal and will never be heard of nor seen again. Keima’s picked up a glitchy game with an apparently unwinnable girl because of bad programming, glitches, errors, an inability to save, etc, but he’s determine to win her by trying every single possible sequence of inputs. What this amounts to for the viewing audience is a plethora of recycled sequences for every loop Keima goes through, the game’s awful 2 bar musical sequence repeated for almost the entire episode.
So, yeah… The less said about this one, the better. A couple of the glitches were kind of funny, especially when they first started getting weird instead of just looping all the time, but then it killed it by repeating the same scene about four times in a row followed by a frankly almost insultingly bad insert song montage. The only thing more irritating than that was the block-headed teacher’s shirt. And then, as a final coup de grace to just rub it in our faces, a ‘special’ one frame ED. Thanks, Manglobe. Thanks.
