Tiger & Bunny #18 — Rewrite

July 30th, 2011

 

Can you imagine if they tried to pull this crap with Batman or Spiderman?

Impressions:

Bleh. That was incredibly dumb. Sunrise still only has the most tenuous of grasps on what makes a superhero show. Devoting most of the first half to chuck in a flashback to try to make people feel sorry for Kriem right before she shouts out that Jake wasn’t Bunny’s parents killers before killing herself was just… ugh. I don’t even want to talk about it. Conveniently, now Bunny starts seeing different people as the killer in his flashbacks too now… including himself, making everything even stupider. I’m so glad we spent so much time looking at the damn things.

Meanwhile, the whole thing is interspersed with shots of Kaede’s powers being comically out of control because she’s apparently Rouge minus the brain killing. They also went all out in the ‘humorously’ misunderstanding when Tiger was trying to retire. Bunny just spontaneously developed the urge to interrupt him and finish his sentences despite never doing it before and likely never going to do it again. That’s some bad-harem-level nonsense right there. So in the end, all this episode had was an unneeded flashback for a tertiary character who just showed up to hit a big ol’ reset button to rehash the old plot. Stellar. Even for this show, that’s pretty damn pathetic.

Preview:

Kaede keeps whining.

    How is that a reset button? They never even implied that Jake was the killer, we’re just going off Barnaby’s memories. Most likely he’s being manipulated to kill by someone else.

  • DmonHiro says:

    Actually, Bunny interrupted Tiger several times. Hell, EVEYRONE interrupts him.

  • Aroduc says:

    …You have got to be kidding me.

  • Anonymous says:

    Cuz he sux and deserves to be interrupted, is it that hard to understand?

  • Jared says:

    What, did you think he would spontaneously remember like that? That doesn’t happen. What does happen is that something hits enough triggers that it confuses your brain, and gets stuck into ’empty’ spots that have enough similar triggers associated with them.

    Which is, incidentally, why witnesses aren’t actually good information sources, they remember their INTERPRETATION of a scene, instead of what it really was. And hey, it isn’t like this didn’t seem likely when Bunny first said “It was him!”

    also, compared to the shit they pulled in batman and spiderman bunny’s faulty memories pale in comparison to all the bullshit rewrite plot twists that were in marvel and dc comics
