Yatterman Night #11 — It’s a Joke About VHS

March 22nd, 2015

  

Because remember when you had to rewind tapes? Hilarious!

Impressions:

It took this episode ten minutes to get to the plan to enslave humans under the name of the defeated Yatterman as revenge. That’s how little the show thinks of its audience’s intelligence. I’m pretty sure most of us figured that out at least eleven episodes ago, but hey, sure, let’s spend half an episode explaining that. Then it doubled down on that by him revealing that human misery is what makes the antagonist immortal. Now we can extra look forward to ‘being happy’ or ‘friendship power’ or ‘hope’ as what wins the day in the end!

As long as we’re going through the godawful reveals this episode, there’s also Red going into a series of flashbacks revealing that he he’s the cyborgized father of Blindy, bringing that whole inexplicable schtick with him to its inexplicable end. I think we needed to have a little more interaction with… well, any character for that to have even come close to working. They also press ganged and cyborgized her dog just because, apparently. I also guess that mom’s simply not worth mentioning.

    The original Yatterman on that VHS looked way better than this.

    God i absolutely hate the way Dokurobey talks. From the actual voice to that stupid ass “bei” speech tic.

    “They also press ganged and cyborgized her dog just because, apparently. I also guess that mom’s simply not worth mentioning.”

    Maybe the dog was her mother.

    All this time to tell us Gan and Ai dun goofed big time. Only way to make up for wasting our time is to strip Leopard!

    Twist!

    Not to mention how then we’ll pull a stinger showing us the bady guy still lives somewhere, somehow, as long as there’s any evil in men’s heart, in the hopes of ever inflicting a sequel upon us. And our pockets, mostly.

    “All this time to tell us Gan and Ai dun goofed big time”.

    I know, right? It’s like Negima and UQ Holder all over again, because there’s no better way to please fans of your franchise than by telling them their heroes’ noble efforts ultimately led to nothing but a dismal, bleak future where everyone you cared about is dead.

    Actually I kinda like that he can casually keeps his ‘-bei’ speech pattern and none of the cyborgs/robots in the room think anything about it. The absurdity is just surreal.
