The Testament of My New Overlord Sister #01 — Congealment

January 7th, 2015

  

It’s not a good sign that my patience with these is already running out.

I’m leading a one man campaign against the awful (and mistranslated) Engrish official title.
Also, there are five new shows tomorrow and I have a late-ish work meeting, so… Stuff’s probably going to be split to before and after dinner.

Impressions:

And here we have a fantastic demonstration of why I felt like being somewhat charitable towards Absolute Duo. I picture some kind of Crocodile Dundee encounter between them. “You think that’s padded, tasteless, and cliche? Naw, mate. This is padded, tasteless and cliche.” I don’t even think this show was made so much as simply spawned from congealed light novel laziness. He walks in on her pissing, gets mistaken for a rapist, twice, his new sister then mounts him and grinds her crotch on his while moaning before he trips on her and is mistaken for a rapist again. This is all in the first five minutes. One would think there’s nowhere to go from there but up, but one hasn’t seen the godawful smoke effects they’re going to use.

But don’t think tasteless (and weak as hell) attempts at T&A are the only light novel cliches it’s hanging its hat on, there’s also the protagonist who literally sits in the dark, clutching his hand and having post traumatic flashbacks against the darkness within him and his past. Or how he shows how ‘awesome’ he is by running around in a circle really fast. And by really fast, I mean he moves about 5 feet in merely the time it takes for characters to gasp that he’s disappeared, look around, and then yell in surprise a second time. Yeah, the production’s also weak as hell, so don’t come in expecting anything in the way of action either.

This show is safe, and I meant that in the worst way possible. It doesn’t have a single shred of creativity or ambition anywhere in its form, because taking a chance on anything might scare someone. The action is laughable, the characters are all wafer thin cloned cliches that already annoy me, and it took goddamned nearly 20 minutes to reveal the twist in the show’s damn title. It’s trying to be dross and for reasons I can’t seem to fathom, seems incredibly self-satisfied with it. …Christ, are there really three more of these left to begin?
