Place to Place #04 — Kanker! Fight!

April 26th, 2012


Uh, whatever you say.


I rather like the over-the-top games that this show has, especially how both Tag here and the snowball fight last episode ended with more strategy and tactics than I think I’ve seen in any Japanese action show in months. Reviewing the coup de grace as much as they did here was probably still a little bit much for just one piece of misdirection beyond what was already obvious. The out of control energy of some of the characters also works a lot better when it’s supported visually, violence last week and running along the walls and ceiling as hunter-killers this week.

Unfortunately, the second half’s talk show was easily the most dull the show’s ever been. Goodbye to the visual energy of the first half and hello to just a bunch of talking heads. Maybe they ran out of cash and needed a segment a lot easier on the budget. I’m not really sure I can think up any other excuses for it because it just seems like a bad premise all around for a show like this where almost all the jokes and content in general is done through character interactions. Sticking a literal wall plus speaker system between them isn’t the best of ideas.


Playing with headcrabs.

    I realized… but you really like headcrabs huh? Be sure to bring back a Lamaar for me when you go to the citadel.

    I love this show. I realize it’s all “fluff” and maybe overly cute, but I just like it. TONS of good animated .GIFs for catgirl fans.
