Yozakura Quartet – Moon Cry #02 — It’s Just a Bestiality Kind of Day

February 5th, 2014

 

Could they really not find a better way to have wolf-boy mount Lila?

Impressions:

You know, there’s been an entire series for this show in between the first episode of this OVA set and this one. I’m a little hazy on where we left off last time, but I’m pretty sure it was in an inn in the middle of nowhere with Kyousuke being mounted by a half naked fox woman. I guess I remember the cliffhanger of the kids being attacked or whatever, but I still wasn’t expecting to see Lila on her hands and knees with wolfboy in the mounting position on top of her within the first few minutes.

An unfortunately lengthy portion of this episode can just be summarized as “Lila vs public service” in a battle of laziness though, including but not limited to teaching anybody willing to listen to her about mermaids. There was also an unfortunately significant amount of wall punching and not nearly enough face punching. The action was just kind of wonky all around. Explosions/dust booms were disproportionately huge, perspectives were extra funky, the laws of physics just gave up entirely, etc. 

In the end, it just feels like pretty much nothing happened. Lila jobbed to the ‘werewolf’ in the opening minutes, letting him run off with the half-vampire girl, and then that was kind of it. The main characters of the series didn’t even show up. Not even to make a joke about not showing up. Just one very very brief flashback toward the end. Hell, the cliffhanger is the wolfboy going to them, meaning we’re picking up in a few months or whatever pretty much right back where this episode started. It’s difficult to feel much in the way of progression from that.

    I was attracted by “bestiality” on the title of this post…

    More Juri is needed.

    You’ll kinda get your wish with the next OVA.

    Well, that’s what you get for almost directly adopting the events of the manga.
    The manga already has a somewhat slow pace overall and this portion was mostly a build-up and place for some character development.

    The good news is that unless they split it to two parts, this story arc will finish with the next OVA.
    And well, I’ts going to be quite an action-filled one.
