Show! Don’t! Tell!
I think I’m out. I’ve been holding out hope for more things like the deathbread and/or abusing the fairies in strange ways… or even other things at least as bizarre as the chickens but delivered better… and instead I’ve gotten "Look at this black monolith. We watched 2001 too," and nearly three straight minutes of watching Pinky read a book with the oh so hilarious visuals of the pages. They wouldn’t even need to go full-on Shaft there to spice that up, just actually show what they’re saying instead of simply reading it out in an exceeding dull spew. That’s what I do, but I’m not expected to look interesting. That’s merely a happy side effect of my animal magnetism.
Anyway, another mostly very very dull two part episode. The fairies are running away because there’s a resurgance of electricity, not to mention a catgirl that is little more than a combination of a few of Yozakura Quartet’s character designs fused into one. Then it’s off to explore some more ruins filled with blobs where the monolith turns one of them into a robot dog somehow. Knowing that likely all of this will be dully explained next week fills me with something less than anticipation, and so with two other shows that cater towards my crushes on historical warlords and love for making fun of racist inept militaries, it gets 5-10 minutes next week to change my mind or I’m jumping ship.
