Ixion Saga DT #10 — Wherein Brain’s Base Stops Trying Entirely

December 9th, 2012

 

I hope you like half-assedly animated volleyball.

Impressions:

Nearly 15% of the episode was the stupid volleyball shot. Fifteen goddamned percent. If that’s not a sign that they’ve just given up, I don’t know what is. The rest, meh. Kon whines about video games again, goes slightly crazy and ‘plays’ them on the square he drew on the wall with the wooden controller he carved. Then they dump him in a pro wresler match where he kicks theem in the balls and runs away. Yawn. Come up with some new material. More than ready for the new season to replace this with just about anything else.

 

Preview:

I don’t care.

    Pretty sure DT is two cours.

    I don’t know, maybe for the next season you could try to stick with a few more shows for a bit longer before dropping everything with an actual plot.

    Thursday.
    K stayed, Psycho-Pass leaved.

    Friday.
    Oniai stayed, Jojo and SSY leaved.

    Sunday.
    DT stayed, Magi leaved.

    The PLOTS won against the plot.

    Now I find myself watching this show purely for the trap(s). I see no trap fan service this week, I’m disappointed.

  • Jack says:

    No offense, plot or no plot, “Magi” is a poorly executed, boring show that is in need of some serious editing.

    The lead character is annoying and blond, the plot is derivative, and we’re slogging along to nowhere because we’re bogged down with useless filler with a cast that’s WAY too large for the medium (as usual; thanks Japan).

    The best part of “Magi” is the opening song and that’s only because I’m a fan of the Dead Kennedys.

  • Aroduc says:

    Are you insinuating that Magi and Jojo should be watched for their compelling stories? Or that Psycho-Pass’s isn’t a clumsy hamhanded mess?

    That would be silly.

  • Chipp12 says:

    I don’t think that it’s Brain’s Base to blame. The director did almost the same thing in Danshi Koukosei.

  • arknoir says:

    I think jojo is best simply for Speedwagon, who could narrate and monologue at my wedding, funeral and re-birth.Man’s a national treasure.

    I like Psycho pass.It’s got Gillian Seed in it chasing boomers.

    ‘From the new world’ they all suffered from Chunnibyou. they all thought they were middle school bonobos.

    Ixion is o.k for sh*ts and giggles as its one of the only anime this season not to throw a zillion imoutos at the screen to cover up a pointless plot. Ixion is honest about it.

  • algorithm says:

    I don’t have much praise for the ones you dropped but at least they have more substance to them than those who stayed for a 3 lines weekly review.
