The Monster Next to Me #10 — Christmas Cape

December 3rd, 2012


I really hope that’s not a thing.


Brace yourself, because I’m going to say the same thing as what feels like the last month, only this time with more santa hats opera masks. Continued focus on blondie silently fuming to himself, and the pathetic attempts to pretend like there’s a triangle there annoy me. Having Natsume tell him to step off probably isn’t helping. Maybe we should develop that to something beyond brooding, but then again, that might threaten the precious fated romance of the show and we can’t have that! I have no idea what the wallflower’s doing in the show either other than eat up screen time with such compelling scenes like "You should come to the party" *dramatic pause* "I really can’t go to the party" *dramatic pause* "You really should!" *dramatic pause while she looks shocked.*

Top it all off with another ‘touching’ scene on the stairs about their feelings despite the two of them being secondary characters through the previous 18 minutes  reset it immediately, and that’s another episode down having gone nowhere, done nothing, and not been particularly amusing along the way. Ramp the comedy back to where it was early on, give their relationship some actual development, or give the side characters some actual focus instead of half-assing it. Pick one, pick all. Of course, with only a few weeks left, I’m sure they’ll pick none. A man can still dream.

    omg natsume chan is the best!

  • algorithm says:

    Remind me why are you still watching this?

  • firecow says:

    yes do tell, why are you still watching this Aroduc?

  • deningo says:

    You guys should know that he is only bloging shows to coplain about them.

  • Aroduc says:

    Newton’s first.

  • algorithm says:

    Not true, He definitely enjoyed Horizon but since he is more confortable with shit shows complains are expected. That or a short reminder about how pointless a hopeless show was this week.

  • epileptic says:

    Come one. It is just not possible that every show is so bad how he does make them to be. And many of those “shit shows” are at worst just avarage, but they don’t deserve this ridiculous nitpicking and complaining about absolutely every anime standart or non issue. That he is watching anime when he doesn’t even like them in the first place, is way beyond me.

  • Jack says:

    Ugh. The lighting in this show is so bad. Painful.

  • The Phantom says:

    One of the worst shows of the season…
