Freezing #13 — Doctor Person

October 4th, 2013

 

If not for that subtitle, I might have assumed it was a doctor chihuahua.

Impressions:

Fairly poor return. Not that Freezing was ever a great show to begin with, but its entertainment value could pretty much be expressed as a mathematical formula involving time characters were naked and number of knives to the face, and this episode was fairly lacking in both. Even the eyecatches weren’t hilariously overinformative, telling us that someone’s erogenous zone was the inside of their vagina. That was something to look forward to even in the dullest episodes of the first season. Kazuya’s still stupid enough to nearly get himself killed though, retaining his role as the damsel in distress whereupon he basically disappears from the rest of the episode. That’s… something?

First third was spent on a relatively poor action scene where I think they expected the snow effects to make everything difficult enough to see so they didn’t really need to try. Maybe I’d feel a little more well-disposed toward it if they hadn’t spent five minutes in a plane flying to it. More time was spent showing them in transit than actually fighting. Exciting. There’s also a reason that the Nova either slaughtered people wantonly or they just took people over to fight by proxy. I’m pretty sick of "large immobile monster gets wailed on" these days, Japan. The rest was basically "New school! In Alaska! These will be our antagonists! See how they scowl with shadows over their faces!? Rarr! Evil!" Someone better get stabbed in the face next week, damn it.  

 

Next Episode:

 

Swim suits and slapping.

    Alaska? Oh wow they decided to skip the whole Satella’s rapist/slave master brother-arc.

  • kenuran says:

    An arc full of angst and awful drama was skipped. Sounds like a good move.

  • The Phantom says:

    Let me guess, you are going to follow this show regardless of how terribad it is right?.
