Nobody’s surprised when everybody dies.
Much much improved, but then again, I wanted all of these characters to die after last week’s horrid episode. A shock to everybody who has never heard word one about Muv Luv, I’m sure. Everybody dying, I mean, not me wanting them to die… although I guess that’s not particularly rare either. The idiots weren’t really helping themselves either, most of them getting themselves killed for being utter morons. It turned half of them into more hilarious than the tragic deaths of friends I’m sure they were going for. Skipping last week’s episode could’ve probably helped that too. If they hadn’t made me hate all of them, then… well… I wouldn’t be rooting for the penis monsters. Revenge girl was particularly insufferable and I was glad to see her being
eaten censored. Ex-Rival girl was the only death that had any real oomph to it with almost all of the rest being more comical than anything. It’s not like anybody spent millions training these girls for ages on how to fight and gave them absurdly expensive mecha to do it only to get immediately shot down for doing the equivilent of sticking your head out of the trench to search for the sniper corps.
On to the less good, or ‘good.’ Whichever. Hooray for CG. CG everything. At least they’re actually using it to decent effect and with everything in those fights being CG, the usual clashing of styles isn’t too bad. The mixing of styles still does annoy me though, particularly when they keep cutting to closeups of their excessively detailed glistening
breasts suits and then it’s back outside to the other style. There were a few points where they actually animated the space penises too instead of using the CG models. At least be consistent about your ugly stylistic budgetary choices. Of course, since it’s now off to the training/dev facility to find the actual main protagonist of the show… We’ll see. Nice that at least one Sunday show improved from last week though.
The OP this week was just recycled clips from episode 1. Nothing worth seeing. Or listening to for that matter.
