ZETMAN #10 — Enjoying the Jailbait

June 4th, 2012

 

I know what this episode was all about!

Impressions:

Well, it’s an episode mostly centering around Kouga… being ‘tested’ because why the hell not… with the obligatory damsel in distress being Konoha as always, and you know how I just can’t ever get enough of him. At least he didn’t spend the entire thing drooling over Jin. His weapons have been getting more and more ridiculous though. I think they put rabbit ears on his pistol, and when he took it out to finally use it, it turned into a sword. Which as you know are far preferable to guns. Especially when fighting robots. Not that the party of about twenty different school girls, all wearing different uniforms wasn’t weird enough already. Just from how far out were they shipping all these girls in? Although given their reaction to the wall sliding away revealing a honeymoon bed, there’s at least an 85% chance they were all nymphomaniacs/prostitutes anyway. And then the room ate one of them. I’m not entirely certain what happened there. A censorship bar (probably?) just dropped down and then there was a bloodsplatter before they unleashed the giant robot that would make up the meat of the actual test. And speaking of that, I have no idea how those random other girls died either. They cut away from Kouga for a while to do other stuff, then cut back and another three or four were dead while he was seemingly no worse for wear.

Elsewhere, all Jin did this week was bask in the afterglow of shagging his jailbait. The XXs whined some more and moped about being useless as always, and ol whose-his-face with Evol broadcast a summary of the show’s premise and then unleashed his swarm of lizard/insect people onto the city. I question the logic, not to mention the logistics of this plan, but hey, lizard men chewing off people’s heads has never not improved matters. Well, if they had actually showed it instead of one exceedingly lame still of mid-mastication.

Why does your gunsword not shoot anything?

    I know you are not interested in the Aniblog Tourney, but I think you are going to lose because people are getting “Robbirolled” when they click the link to your site.
    Actually I found that funny.

    A true tragedy.

    What’s Robbirolled?

  • Anonymous says:

    Oh by the way I don’t know if you were intentionally doing it or not but you seem to have confused Jin for Kouga and vice-versa throughout your post.

  • Chipp12 says:

    Looks like my version of the video didn’t have censoring.

  • gdgd Fairy says:

    The same as Rickroll, but this time, the link sends you to a youtube song of Robbi Robb.
    For some bizarre reason, the link now sends me to a Chicken Satay recipe…

  • Aroduc says:

    I’m not sure what I was doing either. Too early in the day, so couldn’t have been drunk…

  • Aroduc says:

    Apparently, the Japanese broadcast was censored while the Viz webcast was not.

  • ark noir says:

    I read the manga as I found the anime cumbersome in its execution at times though in contrast Pretty decent manga and it’s answered my question on how long does Konoha’s NTR lasts for.Blame Jin, its long.

  • willyvereb says:

    Ah, so they do animate this story arc.
    Albeit they messed up the order of things majorly.
    This “test” took place years before Kouga even became Alphas.
    There wasn’t any gunsword, he just had special chainmail and two electrified boxers, both made by Kouga himself. It was also supposed to be the time when Kouga learns about Players and the dark side of the Amagi family.

    As expected, the anime continues to butcher Zetman’s plot further.
