Gaist Crusher #01 — Throwing Children

October 2nd, 2013


To be fair, he did flash his ass at a robot dragon.


I blame ZKC for my, well… not exactly hope… but forlorn belief that one day another kid’s show will surprise me by being good. This will not be it. This could, however, make an extremely effective drinking game. Just take a drink every time someone says "gai" or "gaist." Good damn luck surviving the OP though. I was pretty much checked out around six or seven minutes in when the generic spikey haired protagonist was standing up to the bully while circus music was playing. The tutorial beginning and "gaist!" "gaist!" "gaist!" "gaist!" didn’t do it any favors.

What else is there to say? It’s a generic kid’s show very clearly made for no other purpose than selling toys and/or the 3DS game with about as much effort as you’d expect from a toy commercial. They even have cell phone accessories for transforming. The best I can think to say is that it’s very corny. Moreso than most of its ilk. I mean, good lord, he doesn’t have enough fighting spirit until he’s fed his special bento, a plot device that I’m not sure I’ve seen since Popeye, or maybe the 1980s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. And then he falls asleep to the bemusement of all. Ha. Ha. Ha.

It’s exactly what you’d expect on the tin. Not surprising at all, but it’s comforting to know all is still right with the world. Or something.

    To be accurate, he flashed his Shiny Ass at the robot dragon.

    Too bad it’s a TV Tokyo supper-time series. Imagine the potential if this were a late night series and the kid flashed his Shiny Ass at one of the girls, and she went for it.

    (We can only dream… LOL)
