That’s Why I Can’t Have Sex #01 — …Someone Doesn’t Wax

July 5th, 2012

 

Fields of red.

Ugh. Airport wireless ate my post. Attempt #02. Also, I’m out of here now until Sunday afternoon. Campione’s the only thing that airs tomorrow, but there are about a dozen Saturday/Sunday shows that I won’t be covering with my usual alacrity and at worst, everything will have to wait until Sunday. You’ll live.

Impressions:

Another pleasant surprise, although feel did about everything wrong that ARMS did right. …And it’s still far from what I’d call good. The main characters are all of the "scream at everything" variety, or if female, "scream and call it an idiot/pervert" as context requires. Because you need to have depth. That gets obnoxious really really fast. Didn’t stop the inner monologuing either, although there’s been far worse. At one point, he was monologuing over himself laughing over her talking though. That’s… uh… something. The direction and music are also just plain bad here. I have no idea what was with the over-animated spin as Noisy A got stabbed by Noisy B, and the less said about the CG, the better. It’s like they were trying for kind of a claymation feel, then got distracted and never finished it.

On to the good then. feel did quite a good job with the animation, putting special effort into the ending fight. Actually, that’s about all the good I’m willing to give it, but if they put the same effort into a fight against non-terrible CG vines, then at least it should be a decent popcorn show. Well, and if they shove ballgags in everybody’s mouths so they stop screaming at me… and kick out Glasses whose sole purpose in the show was to cart her breasts from point A to point B to give Noisy A something to riff off of for the opening segment. Who knows, though. Maybe I’ll get to enjoy Thursday Evening With AT-X and Porn Directors unironically. I’m not holding my breath though.

Anything to shut the moron up.

  • The Phantom says:

    It made me laugh a couple of times, was a shameless knockoff of another anime though.

    So far I’m gonna stick to it, it was decent enough, but it needs less fanservice and more comedy.
