The 〇〇 Prince and Stony Cat #03 — Navel Abuse

April 27th, 2013

 

I’d rather pretend the first half doesn’t exist.

Impressions:

I don’t even know where to begin with the problems that Azusa’s melodrama nonsense had. I already touched on how it was fabricated at the end of last week just to have a cliffhanger, but there wasn’t even enough to it to last an entire bloody episode. Just one maudlin half that was more or less info dumps and not even following your own goddamned premise. There’s something inherently wrong with having your character be forced to say everything he thinks, then turning around and having him silently narrate his thoughts. It’s like they just simply forgot what the hell the show was about. I’m not even sure I should be happy about the moronic nonsense lasting only 10 minutes or not. It certainly wasn’t worth a bloody cliffhanger if it was going to be wrapped up so quickly and with such little fanfare or lasting effect. If you skipped those ten minutes, you probably wouldn’t have noticed a damn thing.

The second half was at least a little more levity focused although still lacks the charm of the initial episode. Too slow, too little interaction, too few jokes, etc. The mask stuff was really just sort of jabbed in like a vestigial appendage, but it beats the massively ritalinized jealousy fights over him that took up the other 80% of the half. You can’t make that particularly interesting if you’re not going to have them interact in any way. Especially when your premise is that one of the girls can’t express any emotion. Then again, it’s not like they’re doing a good job remembering their core premise anyway.

    That was a lot of boring and nothing.

  • Di Gi Kazune says:

    To borrow quotes from two shows…

    You all are hopeless perverts and lolicons.

  • Totali says:

    In the OP, Azusa’s turtle is clearly a red eared slider. But in this ep, they showed her two turtles in their tank and there is no water. RES are semi-aquatic turtles that require 10 gallons of water per inch in size. Somone no do their homeworks.

  • Di Gi Kazune says:

    Obviously shotali bemoans the lack of shotas in this show. :p

  • sage says:

    Holy crap Totali you into shotas now? Will you ever stop taking away what’s mine, you fucking cretin?

  • jingoi says:

    Loli is good
    but not good enough to make me watch this.
