Dance With Devils #01 — Mom Power!

October 7th, 2015

 

That'll keep those rapists at bay.

Impressions:

It was just Monday when I was complaining that Japan really doesn't seem to understand the whole musical number thing except as an excuse to put generic pop music videos in when this of all shows would kick things off (well, after the super subtle crucifixion) with the protagonist singing a merry tune to herself providing actual exposition and inner thoughts to song. And then it would have the Backstreet Boys pop up and do their own generic pop music video. Well, it was fun while it lasted. And by fun, I mean still largely boring and mundane, because I'm pretty sure that I've seen this setup with everything from bishie god boys to bishie vampire boys to to bishie werewolf boys to bishie RPG boys to bishie pop idol boys to bishie bishie boys and I could not for the life of me tell you what would make this stand out or be different from most of them. No attempts to be cutesy or funny, I guess.

While it doesn't assault my auditory channels like the previous boy pop group thing this week did, and does get to I suppose what one might call a plot point or two, but still at a laborious pace, still features a glassy-eyed stoned hairless goat masquerading as a protagonist, and the animation budget was strained past its breaking points by that half a second of a spinning kick in what can only be called an 'exciting' part if speedlines are your fetish. Yeah, getting a musical number more or less right in execution is an improvement over its endless ilk of pop idol bishie harem clones, but that's one step down, and another eightyfive hundred to go.

Next Episode:

Some more awesome kicking.

    Basically this is a shameless Diabolik Lovers clone with devils instead. Diabolik Lovers is easily the worst POS that anime has ever aborted, well, this is the clone, just epic.

    Isn’t this the sequel?
