To be fair, I want to see Kyousuke hit by a car too. For my novel? Yeah, sure. Whatever.
The one nice thing about the DST shift to these things being around the moment I wake up is that when episodes are boring as sin, I never really snap out of my sleep filled daze. The two most notable things about this episode were that the magical girl spoof contained about as many frames as the entire rest of the episode and the music being especially godawful by being recycled even more than usual. I would suggest that the musical director be thrown into traffic, but I suspect that they may already have been. Well, I suppose that Kirino turning into a gibbering
halfwit tenthwit from hearing the crappy OP to her crappy show is also notable, but just goes to show that her biggest issue is probably her lack of a frontal lobe. Hm… That’d also explain her sociopathy too. The plot thickens.
Nothing else about this episode is really worth mentioning. It worse than being bad, it’s just plainly dull and tedious. This episode is back to a soulless copy and paste of words from the static novel onto static pictures while the animators nip off to the titty bar to do tequila shots off a Taiwanese boy. I actually prefer it when things are notably bad, it’s inspiring to say something… anything… about it then. At least then there’s a little life somewhere in this mess. I’m waiting for the big reveal at the end of the show that everybody was just a series of cardboard cutouts with slight hallucinations of motion while Kyousuke rocks back and forth in the mental asylum. But at least it’s not Arakawa. I guess. The gulf is narrowing every week.
And don’t ask me why there’s a Taiwanese boy at the titty bar. I don’t know either. Ask him.
