I clearly do not understand Japanese shoes.
fun drinking game drinking game that will kill you, drink every time Goofus shouts her name, and every time it shows a CG corridor of some kind from the first person view. Train, escalator, hallway, it’s all good. And boy, were they apparently proud of them. It was almost like badly hidden loading screens games like Resident Evil love to put behind door animation transitions or the like. And we also continued our descent into the cliche even further than that by releasing the greatest darkness within, which was obviously the protagonist because it’s a damn light novel and of course they’re struggling against the darkness always lurking inside them. As always, its only weakness is hugs and shouting your feelings. Your feelings that despite everything shown thus far of you being cutesy/blandy, you actually realize the crushing teenage pain of being a completely unique girl/boy not to mention the most special and awesomest but being loners just looking for anybody to think you’re normal and accep… crap, I think I’m channeling Twilight again.
Anyway, monster slain, cliches progressed through, CGI corridors traversed. Not without shouting over every little thing every single step of the way though, from taking off shoes to stabbing people you just wanted to stab for funsies a week or two ago. We’ve moved from written to visual, guys. We can afford to cut down some of the dialogue. I’m not even certain I understood why it was suddenly vital for them to be barefoot, how that assisted them in running up the now 80 degree escalator slide, why the other girl apparently stopped in the middle of shooting at them to take off her shoes too, or why the guy wearing three layers and a tie couldn’t be bothered to take a single one off, but what the hell do I know about demonic pseudo-reality dreamscapes anyway?
Perhaps the episode that finally sickens me of this entirely.
