Dragon Crisis! #09 — LIAR!

March 7th, 2011

 

Because in a world of dragons, some guy with an axe is really dangerous.

Impressions:

Well, this was pretty lame, which is surprising for an episode with almost no Ryuuji. They were going for a horror themed episode, right down to the killer stalking all the girls and him not really being ‘dead’ at the end, but they botched the execution pretty badly. For starters, most of the focus was on freakin’ Misaki of all characters. Who cares about her? You bring back Eye and then focus on the character whose sole contribution to most episodes is to look surprised and cower? And the whole point was to get her to admit that she liked Ryuuji? Why, Deen? Why would you do this? It’s not like there was even a point to it. The killer was betrayed, so they all have to admit that they like Ryuuji, or… he’ll try to kill them anyway. Great.

So anyway, they’re sucked into a cursed precious where they’re all stalked by some magic guy who was betrayed by his lover and writes "Liar!" all over the place. One would think at this point that Eriko would be a little more careful accepting random magical items in the post. That was the other big thing wrong with the episode. Aside from being corny as all hell with them standing around yelling about how they like him, none of them except Misaki even really hesitated to say it… and beat the snot out of him the first time he appeared. Then they were saved by giant Bianca appearing in the sky to carry them out. Fantastic. Let’s move on to the apparent orgy of dragons next week already.

    Corny as hell is the best way to describe this episode. Mixed with a little bit of dumb. I have to agree that making a big thing out of Misaki saying she likes Ryuji was amazingly pointless. All those answers were obvious. So much potential, such a waste. Felt like I was watching Gosick lol. Hope Ai comes back next episode…

    This didn’t seem like a bad idea at the time to anyone?

    Hah…yeah, someone that can spew fire probably wouldn’t make the best gas station attendant. ;-)

    Hilariously, that picture doesn’t really make sense. Those pumps are probably from the 1950’s – 60’s, and gasoline didn’t sell above a buck until about 1979 (as pictured on the signs).

  • Jack says:

    That was a painful episode to watch. Total useless filler.

  • Benigmatica says:

    Well, it came straight from a cheesy horror flick! That’s the justification…

  • Shiden says:

    Worst part: No beast-mode Ai. :(

  • The Phantom says:

    I love the art style and character design from this show, the story is nothing special, but overall the show is solid, even if for the visuals and characters alone.
