Seriously dude. Why are you even in this show?
Just for the record, I did flip through the Sacred Seven movie. It was about 60% recycled footage from the show (as expected) and the rest was mostly random Night background stuff which I could not possibly care less about. At least Nanashi was nice enough to fill some of the time by lounging around in her underwear. It’s also been some time since a hardsub was the first source to watch out. Well, I guess the one hour broadcast delay putzed everybody up except for Viz. Huzzah.
And right back to "meh bording on bleh" the show goes, although that shouldn’t really be surprising since Kouga devoured at least half the episode. Hell, he even threw a goddamned temper tantrum because his super suit wasn’t the right color. If their goal was to make him be the most insufferable brat possible, they’re succeeding admirably. Sadly though, I’m fairly sure that we’re meant to be empathizing with him as a paragon of justice. Booster Gold is less petulant than him. Booster Gold. And then there’s the
Brotherhood of Evil Mutants Evol, also introduced this week. At length. Because why have an organized group show up and do organized things with a purpose when you can just explain it. And then explain it again?
Meanwhile, Jin is on harem juggling duties. Barging into showers after we watch an entire segment about the jailbait undressing, facilitating misunderstandings, etc. And then when it’s time to go off to save the damsels in distress, he gets stabbed in the chest. Again. Your formula is wearing thin here, Zetman. How about stabbing somewhere else? Let’s say a leg. Maybe an arm. Hell, go for the whole crucifiction thing. It’s not like you’ve ever tried to be subtle before.
