Yeah, yeah. Whatever.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention a certain new PV, one that is apparently too sexy for YouTube. Usually when people talk about straight shots to the labia, they mean something else altogether. Actually, I can’t recall that ever coming up in conversation. Regardless, it’s certainly a sight to behold. That show is going to be… something.
Eh. Whatever. Does anybody actually care or have any expectations at this point? The best I can say is that it doesn’t devolve back into flashbacks for an episode, even if all the stuff about Kaguya, Rick, etc, is still inane as all hell and comes down to him stabbing an interdimensional lizard thanks to Kaguya being all glowy. Then it ends with him telling her about the happiness of bread (seriously, his exact words. "That’s the happiness of bread.") while she munches on it on a beach before it proceeds through an ending montage of all the character that have languished forgotten, like the elves, the ice cream witch, etc. Rick’s big final moment of triumph was hiding on the side of his bed to surprise three girls who like to sneak in and mount him in his sleep. Great work there, dude. Glad to know you have your priorities in order.
Final thoughts, such as they are, below.
Destined to be immediately forgotten and rightly so. Very poor technical production, rife with unneeded flashbacks and recapping things over and over and over again, and got mired in the whole garbage existential crap at the end. The characters were probably the best part, being pleasant to watch, good-natured, supportive of each other, and not falling into terrible melodramatic angst pits aside from the stumbling with Rick towards the end where it just kept retreading his stuff over and over again. If it had actually developed a passable story to go with it, or just had a lot more swords, lasers, pirates explosions, etc, it could’ve been okay, but alas. Like I said, flashbacks, recapping, and the animators were probably paid in old circus peanuts.
There’s no real reason to watch this. Maybe if you’re a huge fan of the game, but even then, there’s not a whole lot to get here. Or maybe if you’ve got a really bad fetish for bread. Now onward to the summer season and it’s… six… shows airing tomorrow (belated edit: Ugh, 7 thanks to Hakuouki suddenly getting a second pre-air thingy of the actual episode). Oi. Fun times. At least half of them air at around 6-8am my time so there’ll be plenty waiting by the time I haul myself out of bed.
