Shana Ⅲ #13 — “Shut Up and Kiss Me”

January 6th, 2012

 

You can tell who the man is in this relationship all too easily.

Impressions:

Well, the first half wasn’t too bad. At the very least, it was far better than most of what JC Staff has spat out for this season of Shana thus far. Oh, sure, all the reaction faces from around the world were silly, but at least Khamsin vs Sabrac wasn’t bad. Then they had to go and ruin that by having them all gape at the CG eel snake undulating. My patience with that ran out at least a month ago. Then Becky’s the first to jolt out of her haze and lazily toss a fireball at him. He spends the next two minues burning to death and thinking about dying. Stellar. "Smile, my dear butterfly." Yeah, sure. Whatever, dude. You’re on fire. 

Shana trying to kiss Yuuji in the middle of their fight was also… not exactly the greatest point of writing I’ve ever seen. They actually did a good job animating their foreplay for once though, brief as it may have been. Oh the jokes I could make about Yuuji bleeding because he’s the woman in the relationship. Crap, I think I already did. Of course, they don’t actually kiss because Yuuji is only pretending to have testicles magical space ghosts take Shana away. I feel like I’ve crossed out the wrong thing there. No… no. That’s right. After telling him that she’ll be the one to kiss him if he can’t do it, space ghosts. I’m less than excited for Shana’s declaration that a new battle’s now beginning. Frankly, I was hoping the Snake’s first act would be to just sit on all the grunt Flame Hazes so we’d never have to see them again.

    Well, why should he have initiative or a spine? He’s a GUY. In ANIME. The women will do all that for him and be subservient in the relationship. Because they have rights it’s their fucking privilege to do so.

    You know, I have stopped reading any of your blogs anymore because of all of this moaning you do. Does it really bother you that “CGI” automatically ruins every credible thing in an anime? You end Fate/Zero blogs, arguably the more anticipated anime of 2011/2012, just for the CG? You are pathetic.
