Blood-C #06 — Massacre

August 18th, 2011

 

Twas a bad day to be a twin.

Anybody else find it funny that both the MBS shows today featured bloody bloody heads?

Impressions:

Well, that’s an improvement, even if the censoring and weird direction ruins about 50% of any impact the initial twinchomp scene could have had. If you’re shooting for a visceral effect on the audience, it should be short and powerful, not slow shots of her shoes falling followed by a series of extended drifting pans of a giant black bar. Also, your audience… me… should care about the character, not find them horribly irritating. And not be wondering why she was hanging out next to the door on the other side of the room for that matter. In that way, the latter scenes of Twin2 going on a rampage and slaughtering a bunch of bystanders was far more effective and looking and feeling bloody, despite having no idea who any of those random people were, or what exactly was up with her suddenly being (or being possess by?) a shadow monster either for that matter. Less censoring would have helped though, significantly.

I guess on the downside, everything without the twins this week was really weak. Now there’s something I never expected to say, but I guess murdering one and turning the other one into some kind of crazy monster has a way of shifting expectations. It was about ten straight minutes in the middle of every single person, dog included, suspiciously telling Saya to be careful. Saya also seemingly could not have cared less about seeing a friend chewed up in front of her aside from a couple short panic attacks. Not that I would have preferred angst and melodrama, but I think watching a friend head get bitten off warrants just a little more than "Oh, it wasn’t a dream" and going on with your life. Maybe that’ll be next week now that both the twins are dead.

Hopefully this means that the horrible school stuff is gone forever though, because ten middle minutes aside with painfully obvious foreshadowing, this was easily the best episode of the show so far. I’ll upload the two fights in a little bit since they’ve been the main attraction thus far anyway.

  • Tachi says:

    When did all this blatant censoring become the norm?

  • Aza says:

    ‘but I think watching a friend head get bitten off warrants just a little more than “Oh, it wasn’t a dream” and going on with your life.’

    I think Saya’s being drugged (most likely by the guy that owns a cafe) or affected by something else to take for granted a lot of things that she shouldn’t. It might explain her annoying everyday personality (she’s high all the time), and how she gets headaches whenever she tries to think seriously.
    Also note how she quickly heals all damage dealt by the monsters (http://tenka.seiha.org/images2/bloodc6/bloodc6_9.jpg isn’t some light wound), but a bruise from rolling on the ground is persistent.

    My God those two nameless girls were very cute…but then they died until they were killed.
