Death Icecapades #11 — …Not Even Lead Piped?

March 20th, 2015

  

Boy, the writing has really unraveled this season everywhere.

Impressions:

Is that it? That’s the big mystery that you’ve spent nearly a third of the show on? She was a figure skater, she got hurt, and then she killed herself because she got depressed? Her amnesia goes as far as “I’m going to kill myself” but not “I killed myself” and that’s what made her an inscrutable mystery? I hate to break it to you, Japan, but that doesn’t even rise to Tonya Harding’s level. She’s at least one sex tape and lead pipe, preferably separately, away from that. I guess with how ridiculously they treated murder, treating a depression-suicide like it’s something nobody, not even all-knowing demigods know how to deal with shouldn’t surprise me, but ye gods, people. There were multiple episodes about that storybook, and the only thing relating to her was that she read it and it had skating in it? Is that really it?

The more interesting thing… sort of… would be the Fangirl, but besides being only a few minutes of the episode, it was yet more sadism and still doesn’t work at all with the Kingdom Hearts-esque “Judges have no human emotion/hearts” bit of drivel. It’d also help if they didn’t pin things on a delusional, oblivious fangirl for giving speeches about life having meaning. You’re like, 16, young woman. You have no idea what you’re talking about. Japan’s godawful idol worship nonsense at work again mostly, taking them a bit too creepily seriously and trying to defend it of all things. If you tried to do this kind of schtick with Justin Bieber in a western show, you’d be laughed off the continent.

    i wonder what oculus up to and it seems decim will rebel against the arbiter rules

  • Germanguy says:

    I think, the interesting question here is. Why the Girl know she was Dead. So Decim was not prepared for this, and Decim is a hidden subject of Human Emotion Arbiter.. So 1+1 and we had the Secret. But then, yeah. Why they need to restore the memories of this Girl? Because she done not the Game and now they use force for her to remember?

    For this Girl, they bend themselves their own Rules of this Show. I just hope Decim will compensate for that

  • Germanguy says:

    Perhaps our Girl will awake in the Human World out of her Coma, and thinking this all was a Dream while in Coma of Blood loss
