Apparently we’re just going to rewrite the past then.
Maybe my memory of the first season was wrong, but I’m pretty sure that PANDRA was a recent thing, and certainly not well estabished to have their own line of caviar. Well, maybe if Muscle was around. Alas. I give about even odds between Manglobe simply deciding to strike off on their own in strange directions, and only getting as far as the first line in the Wikipedia article of the series when it came to learning the greater series. Oh, and he also has a little pin in his lapel that he turns to go Super Esper IV. Aaaand the super cyborg that could fight him, the last boss of the greater series, to a standstill? Vulnerable to the all-mighty power of Gun-Haver. Sigh.
So the writing is already somewhere between haphazard and terrible. Manglobe didn’t do too terrible a job on the rest. Not a good job, mind you, as the fight wasn’t that interesting, the first 15 minutes of set-up was just plain dull, Andy is a very boring sidekick (even with the obvious plant angle), and I really have no idea where they’re going to go if they’re beginning with him already invincible and sailing the seas with a battleship full of over powered followers. I expected more insert songs and terrible CG. You know, Maglobe’s trademarks. Something I could really make fun of. Instead, I just feel ambivalent and a little bored.
Cruising the European seas.
