Infinite Stratos #16 — Disrespecting French Horns

October 17th, 2013


Not french whores, unfortunately.


As a french horn player, I feel kind of insulted by their ignorance and apparent belief that the keys are completely flat. Is this what happens when they’re forced to draw instead of using CGI? And could they really not even find a french horn to make a french horn sound? Christ. They could have even used a clip from the internet instead of grabbing what sounded like a particularly blare-y and distressed trombone. And switching the mouthpiece? On a school instrument? And damned F mouthpieces at that? Aren’t we hoity-toity. Let alone getting excited about some flecks of spit. Here’s a trick, Cici, start spinning that french horn in a circle and watch where the spit come pouring out of yesIknowitsnotactuallyspitbuttheyrestillcalledspitvalvessobiteme. Besides, everyone knows the joke about how it’s not how french horn players kiss but where they put their hands. Also, the lips inside any brass instrument’s mouthpiece are gross.

If that seems particularly petty of a complaint, then it’s because there’s jack all else to talk about outside of the final 10 seconds of the episode. They seem to have just given up entirely, but lack the commitment to just go all out and make it totally ridiculous. Possibly worse, they probably think that’s what they are doing instead of just using some boring low level cosplay as an excuse to rehash what was already rehashed to death. Go big or go home. This repeated "You saw my panties!"/"You grabbed somewhere!" is not cutting it. Wasn’t this show about exosuits or something? Clearly not anymore.

Next Episode:

Some other kind of show entirely.

    The 5 seconds scene where we got to see Pika-tan from the back having a single line was probably the high point of the episode.

    With that being said, this was the worst piece of shit of I’ve watched so far this season. And of course, it’s still here.

      In that case, I feel like you haven’t seen Golden Time, Yowamushi Pedal, Outbreak Company, or Arpeggio.

      • algorithm says:

        I watched the first third of Golden Time’s first episode. In the trash bin it went. Tons of shipping faggotry is required to tolerate such garbage.

    time to start editing. Ecchi is the only good thing about this pile of S.

    Your battles against the bass clef troublemakers are told in legends to this day.

    And yet still the best selling this season…

    I wish physics was common sense when they fucking pilot a mecha suit. Anyone that learned it would know you could stop a ball from rolling before it gains momentum.
