Braves of the Seven Flowers #04 — Show Me Your Special Place

July 25th, 2015

  

Oh hey, look who finally reached their premise blurb.

Impressions:

There’s something slightly endearing about the way Adlet throws dirt in people’s faces and then immediately crouches down to grab more dirt. It is a little weird how he’s the only one really being characterized well during the actual action scenes though, but that could be because he seems to monopolize the animation budget, leaving the rest to make due with CGI, waving arms around randomly while standing still, and swinging ‘heavy’ giant blade-things like they’re windsurfing sails. I know you can animate Bunnyhead, guys. You did it when she went crazy and started slashing at invisible owls or whatever.

The show’s continuing to improve at least, especially through the first half, although I reserve every right to take that back depending on how much of the second half they spend on standing around arguing. It already kind of dragged its heels to the ending after the aforementioned invisible owls incident with the parade of the rest of the heroes wandering in and introductions, re-introductions, and unnecessary descriptions of them all around, and about two minutes spent between “there are seven” and “ergo, one must be a poser and an enemy”, not to mention the truly bizarre spin around them that was making me seasick. But it’s a good thing that they panned up the chest of the obligatory D-cup, otherwise I might not have noticed.

  • The Phantom says:

    Title of the ending song implies the princess is the fake saint, if that is true she has been manipulating everyone, gotta love that twist, she was annoying, glad she is not the one dimensional bimbo she has showed so far.

    algorithm says:

    Fake ears are a giveaway. Fake ears are so wrong.

    FlameStrike says:

    Ugh if that’s true it would be lame. I mean wtf, give away the whole major twist of the series in a spoiler ED? What is this, a Sunrise anime? I hope they make the rest of the character’s EDs just as incriminating to make up for it.

    Aroduc says:

    You forget that this is Japanese media, and the standard is to simply assume everyone watching it already knows about the source and just wants to see what they already know is going to happen. It’s even a time honored Jump show tradition to have episodes entitled with what the cliffhanger will be.

    I’m not sure how I feel about the new episode.
    Literally nothing? I don’t know man.
