Samurai Bride #08 — Hozoininininin

May 24th, 2013

 

I can think of more amusing Inkos.

Impressions:

Something of an odd episode for this show. The tone was all over the place. Not that I’d say it’s been solid on that front in the past, but it’s usually a lot more consistent than jerking painfully between angst and fart jokes. It was ostensibly Hozoin’s episode to hang out with/’fight’ the good guys, but a healthy chunk of it, especially at the start, was dedicated to the sidekicks, Matabei especially, being angsty over being useless. Why this suddenly bothers her after 20 episodes of being useless is a question best left to the sages. Besides that, the only thing that really went anywhere was Muneakira developing his power of red a little more so that Yukihime could block a single attack and then everyone went home. So another stellar action scene there too.

I don’t get you, Arms. The point, perhaps the only point of these kinds of shows, is to try to grab for attention in any way, and in a medium so dominated by a steadfast approach to do nothing whatsoever for as long as possible, I don’t begrudge them for that. But this season so much more than the last, you seem absolutely content to just sit here doing absolutely bloody nothing whatsoever. Fanservice, action, comedy, nada. What’s supposed to be the draw here, if anything?

    The only reason people are still watching it is beacuse of Kanetsugu so yeah, I don’t get what the hell Arms is doing.

    They got the different writer for this season and considering that they barely touch the events from the original novels (and change a lot of stuff) you can consider this almost an original show (just like with Chuuni). So you should blame the new writer here, I guess.

    The pigeon pelleting the monkey was kinda funny.
