Dragon Crisis! #05 — No More Preciouses

February 7th, 2011

 

These things aren’t even exactly Lost if people are making bikinis out of them.

Impressions:

A fairly underwhelming episode. This show really needs to ditch these clown side characters… and Ryuuji for that matter. I think the award for clumsy foreshadowing goes to them bringing up Marga’s necklace, saying it’s a protective charm, then going "dunno if it’s a Lost Precious" about four minutes before it starts glowing out of nowhere and saves her. It was also really disappointing to see them break out the stock footage and super special fusion dance special attack to one-shot the sword. They weren’t even supposed to destroy the bloody thing. Doofuses. The fight was okay, I guess, but it’s still relying entirely too much on people standing stock still and shooting beams of random elements or CG butterflies at each other. That’s also not helped when two of the four beamers are shooting ice.

They undermined anything interesting going on with George by making the sword a Cursed Precious which, get this, is cursed, so as soon as the dragons showed themselves, it just went berserk and once it was destroyed, he was back to his mellow idiotic self. Not like it even makes sense. He’s known these people for approximately 24 hours. So shocking! Who cares if you’ve spent your entire life believing something. That girl has large breasts. I’m glad we spent so much focus on him these last two weeks. The hostage scene in the church was also only tenuously linked to Ice Rage being cursed at best and came off as at the time as an incredibly inane fabrication. Handwaving after the fact doesn’t help. Ryuuji could also stand to look less traumatized by being kissed (off-screen at that) by attractive women. Man… once again, this show would be so much better if they gave Eriko the knife and forced Ryuuji to throw butterflies… or forced him off a cliff into the maw of a Lost Precious shark.

Preview:

Handcuffs, wolfgirls, and earrings. That could be sexy if Ryuuji had testicles.

    This episode was probably the second worst, after the second episode. There really wasn’t that much sense to anything. Rose gets mad (over what?), throws a tantrum, and somehow makes up with Ryuuji when nothing ever really happened. Eriko does whatever she feels like (no surprise there), and we ALMOST get some more back-story on Ryuuji, but he still doesn’t have a full spine. Overall, everything felt really weak, like what you’d expect from a filler episode. I hope Marga shows up again soon, or we get a good replacement, cause she was what made this episode decent.

    Lost Precious Sharks with Lasers?
    Or… Sharks with Lost Precious Lasers?

    I don’t think Ryuji is all that annoying. Sure he fucked up big time in episode 2, but after that he seems to finally have some balls. He’s starting to act decisively too. Also the lack of ambiguity over who the main character will “end up with” is a huge breath of fresh air to me. At least there won’t be any need to rage over the denseness of the male lead in this show. Ryuji’s backstory is kinda weak, but then again, Ichika has NO BACKSTORY yet no one is complaining there. The fanservice was a nice plus too, although it suppose some people aren’t interested in that sort of thing XD.

    Overall a nice episode, nothing ground breaking or memorable, but it’s worth a watch if you have time.

    Fucking Tokura.

    FUCK YEAH. HOCCHAN BOIN BOIN BOIN.

    …(shit, isn’t it sad the best thing this episode was her knockers?!)

    Personally, I’m enjoying the way they keep traumatizing that one classmate… just when she thinks something good is happening, things get worse. ^^

  • Aex says:

    I know what you mean, but it’s still evil! XD

  • Silver says:

    Yeah exactly. I’m getting slightly annoyed how people still saying he has no balls or not manly at all. So far he have been decisive and have not been wimpy at all. The only wimpy thing about him so far is his voice.
