Brynhildr #05 — The Jam Prophecies

May 4th, 2014

  

Maybe its time to pick up the pace or understand that spilling jam is not the shocking image that you think it is, show.

Impressions:

God. I know I’ve said it before, but these characters are seriously too stupid to live. I can think of about 50 ways to kill someone with teleportation. Hell, they’re on a goddamned cliffside. I can think of plenty of ways to kill someone without it. And that doesn’t even get into the rather tenuous logical leap from “standing over body in a puddle of jam” to “going to kill her.” It’s a wonder that she hasn’t believed every protagonist will kill every other one. They learn the new girl uses magic, one or multiple of them are going to die with her nearby, and proceed to just go “eh, whatever. Better not go near any lakes today! And let’s not tell anybody. We might accidentally save a life.” 

Thus does the first eighteen goddamned minutes pass. They could have covered this (minus perhaps the especially rampant stupidity) before the bloody OP. The episode doesn’t improve much when it finally gets around to… setting up the antagonist for later either. Apparently the super dangerous awesome new power they have to fight is… shooting beams. Good lord, are they even trying? And I question how secret this organization can be if they’re sending people to randomly blast up the landscape in public in the middle of the day. Not to mention the veritable army of magic users that all apparently exist within about a one mile radius. Has nobody questioned why dozens of girls suddenly appeared, and then soon after, the landscape started exploding? They must have one hell of a PR department.

Next Episode:

And I can think of about five ways teleportation can be used to beat “fires beams.”

    She’ll be alright. Its only a minor flesh wound

  • Longing says:

    Ah, yes. Nightcrawler vs Cyclops, then.

  • FlameStrike says:

    I think Boobs girl’s power is more limited than Nightcrawlers though.

    This show is getting pretty derpy too.

  • The Phantom says:

    It is fine so long the keep killing named characters, they need to tone down the censor though.

  • Toto says:

    It is. From what we’ve seen, she’s only able to swap herself with another person, and the second she uses it, she’s pretty much done for the day.
