JC Staff continues to mystify me.
I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t always pay as much attention as I should and my memory for these kinds of things is approximately nil, but isn’t this something like the third Christmas themed bit so far? Although it did get distracted from Red’s cold into sort of a pseudo-Rudolf/pseudo-Predator bit fairly quickly, and as always, the more violence, the better. It also felt like JC Staff found some extra change in the couch this week to pay their Vietnamese animators. Sure, the middle part was as terrible as usual, but the first and last were significantly better made than usual.
So a better overall episode than usual, even if the middle continued to be weak as hell, despite their abuse of the Shaft headtilt. All of their swimsuits were disappointingly lame too. Where’s the sarong? Or the fetish outfits? Or even the inappropriately skimpy one? Acuter angles over the crotch do not count. Geometry never made anything better.
