Braves of the Whatever Flowers #10 — Pixel Power

September 5th, 2015

  

Oh no! Not green cubes!

Impressions:

How nice of the Bunny Girl to rejoin the story, after going unhinged from basically nothing in a very sad attempt to sell the closing seconds of the episode. And after only five straight minutes of Shirtless standing there, rock still, as we go through a bunch more flashbacks at the start too. Basically, it’s the same as every other episode from the past month and a half or so, only with the action pushed more towards the end than the beginning. We’re still dragging our heels with getting anything done and everyone still seems content to try to talk each other’s ears off about how they’re totally going to do something, yet only really ever get around to trying that for a minute or two. I think half of Adlet’s lines this episode might have just been yelling her name.

I guess it’s better to end on a high note than to start on a high note and gradually suck all life out of the episode, although it wasn’t so much end as hit the high point at about the 14 minute mark and go right back to chatting. I’m also a little curious who thought the cube pixel things were a good visual effect. Probably the same person who suggested all that bizarre spinning in circles about a month and a half ago. It’s a good thing the characters were saying how powerful it was too, because otherwise, it might’ve just come off as some really ugly-ass particle effects from the PSX era.

9 Shouts From the Peanut Gallery

  • dark says:

    bunny have big mood swings, yandere material and unlimited bunny works
    so fremy finally bite the bait

  • Sanjuro says:

    It’s all my fault. I dropped Gatchaman and it followed me into this anime.

    Aroduc says:

    My favorite part of Gatchaman is all the navel gazing from the poor fools still suffering through it and trying to rationalize how deep its nonsense is.

    algorithm says:

    You still watched half of the second season.

    Aroduc says:

    I do lots of irrational things.

  • Steiner783 says:

    Its annoying how nobody wants to believe Adlet

    algorithm says:

    Its annoying how nobody wants to use the budget to provide decent boobs shots.

  • The Phantom says:

    They have 90+ episodes material here, 13 episodes of everyone doubting and attempting to kill Adlet, followed by the same but chamo instead, then catassassin, then ugly-particle monk, fremy, then lancelot, then the obvious fake princess.

    Epic plot pace.

  • Dave Baranyi says:

    Aroduc – the only mystery here is why you and I are still watching this p.o.s.
