Punch Line #04 — Incomprehensibility

April 30th, 2015

  

You can nearly spot the exact moment everybody gave up on this episode.

Impressions:

Maybe all the even episodes are just going to blow. This is another one of Japan’s many cliches that I just find utterly inexplicable. Not the unmarried middle aged woman thing, but that they still go ahead and make them super models who go out and get drunk and throw themselves at every man who passes, but all refuse to so much as touch them, while also portraying every male as passing out from the extreme arousal of so much as getting a glimpse of someone’s panties. It’s not like they’re Liz Lemon and farting it up on the night cheese express, and even that was a stretch. This is a world where Tinder failed because nobody was interested in having sex ever.

Anyway, that was the joke of the episode. Rabura is desperate. Oh, and when possessing her, the protagonist said a bunch of stupid things and then her date did them. Ha ha ha. Not only did he say she likes turtle food, but then she ate it and didn’t like it. It only gets funnier the more times they do it. Then things just got incomprehensible. First she was throwing a temper tantrum because some guy was just trying to use her to save the world (coincidentally, it’s the world she lives in), but then she immediately changed her mind and was willing to fist fight a friend for him, and it turns out that the magic bear is from her brother or something, and then Juice has some kind of traumatic stress attack because her friends are fighting. Then the episode simply unceremoniously ends having spent the last five minutes tossing out utter nonsense. Oh, and post-credits, one of them is dead. Uh, all right then.

Mostly though, I’m utterly dreading the now inevitable and insipid “You cared? I didn’t realize you cared! I care too!” blubberfest that is now coming.

    Next weeks episode preview. Seems like it might as crazy as episode 3

    “First she was throwing a temper tantrum because some guy was just trying to use her to save the world (coincidentally, it’s the world she lives in), but then she immediately changed her mind and was willing to fist fight a friend for him…”

    Coulda put “save the world” in caps there. Im just wondering why the main character never wonders about who the hell is using his body or that he doesnt seem to care at all about that situation.

    Where did all the panty shots go?

  • Blas says:

    What is the history of this?

  • Germanguy says:

    perhaps they whas thinking with this Pantsu shoots, nobody would asking for the History.. They do not thinking about a Plot

  • algorithm says:

    Suddenly Tony Stark.

    Without the Iron Man suit.

    Meh.

  • Blas says:

    Strike witches i think seems a better choice.

  • Germanguy says:

    Well, somehow the Story line is that this Ghost Boy search a Way to take his Real Body back, for that he need to search a Book somewhere hidden in the House. But since Ep 2, he forgotten all about that

  • Germanguy says:

    or he need a Ghost force level to interact with the real world things, like take the book, open it and turn the pages. for that he need to develop his Ghost force.. but even that, its gone
