Walkure Romanze #01 — Horses Suck

October 6th, 2013


No really. Horses suck.


Does anybody really like horses? They are great beasts with freakish teeth that permanently stink of manure and damp rags. And we all know that this is pure fiction. The horses in this show have an insatiable hunger for women’s skirts, and apparently feeding them people food fills them with the rage to kill, making them basically jackasses and sexual predators. But luckily, they also run slower than humans, so despite being feral beasts kept in cages that can’t hold them at all, they’re not particularly dangerous. But of course, this is also a world where a falls on their face and ends up on their back turned the opposite direction, so who knows how much of our own reality is applicable to it?

Anyway, this one takes the somewhat strange approach of after starting with the awful usual protagonist internal introduction to nobody and then never speaking of it ever again. Most of the episode follows the life and times of a braindead pink creature which craves his penis shamelessly and has an intellect rivaled only by the common garden hoe and some species of rakes. The majority of any episode should not be characterized by the thought "I want to slap this idiot." Hammock girl was about the only one I didn’t feel deserved a horse-attack of the crowd, so yes, we can say without equivocation that it was not a roaring start. This seems to be where 8-Bit decided to send their CGI talent when they weren’t working on IS, and they really shouldn’t have. At least there’s not much of the robo knights, but there’s little else even notable about the production besides them.

Next Episode:

The duel for honor.

    It irritates me so much that that chick’s outfit is a near carbon copy of Utena’s.

  • jingoi says:


    oh god it’s brain jacker all over again.

    I wont allow you to badmouth horses, they are beautiful and some of the most gentle and pacific creatures on earth it’s more likely that a piano falls on you that a horse hurts you

    Afrosquirrel says:

    …said no-one who has raised a horse ever.

  • Yue says:

    One of those images in my nightmares…

  • The Phantom says:

    I guess you are not covering Magi?, what happened to give all shows a chance? Magi was rather good last time.

    Aroduc says:

    Except for sequels/continuation. And 5 shows in one day is enough to not feel the urge to prod at something 26 seasons in.

    OverMaster says:

    I guess sequels aren’t hip enough. Even when they are better than the premieres.

    Aroduc says:

    Certainly not when there’s no love lost for the original series.

  • Malkuth says:

    I am so disappointed that this anime has nothing to do with how centaurs are conceived.
