Aquarion Logos #25 — Insert Songs! From All Aquarions!

December 17th, 2015

 

At least the music was nice.

Impressions:

So after about a month of bumming around, being stricken by magical semi-existence and flashbacks, we're finally ready to try fighting again. Meanwhile, that one scientist is sitting on the floor in the middle of his snacks, Maia's tied up and being given a lecture by a ghost about the nature of magic reality and how everything is her fault. So which do we think gets focus? That's obvious. We just cut right over to Subete already losing and that battle is completely over about 60 seconds of grunting later and it's time for Nonsensical Astral Journey Part 7,123,913 until it's time for Evol's OP to kick in, because I'm pretty sure they realize that was the last time most people had positive feelings towards this franchise and they better hammer on that nerve with all their strength.

So Subete changes his mind and decides he wants to protect Maia against the evil ghost after all, gets a pep talk from his dead parents, and they have a devil's threesome, which literally immediately defeats her and restores reality. But wait, she's not really fully defeated yet! So all their friends and family, living and dead, yell encouragement for a minute or two, ergo she gets one-shot a second time. Let me make this perfectly clear. On paper, there were three fights in this episode. In actuality, one was completely skipped over, and two ended in a single attack while the Big Bad sat there doing nothing. Fantastic goddamned climax, guys. I could really get behind the way they effortlessly won with overwhelming force.

6 Shouts From the Peanut Gallery

  • The Phantom says:

    How have you endured this POS for so long?

    algorithm says:

    After going through all of EVOL, you can take on any show.

    Aroduc says:

    There have been a lot of things far, FAR worse than Evol.

    Well, most of EVOL.

    Not that it was ever particularly GREAT, mind you, but it was one of the rare times Okada remembered that not every character and every situation is a giant ball of angst, and, in a true rarity for Japan, had a half-decent grasp on how to actually be episodic.

    Too bad the writing went utterly terrible and then completely boring.

    There’s one MORE episode?

  • DmonHiro says:

    You know, on 2nd thought, if all episodes were like this one, the show would have been better. If only they hadn’t tried to take themselves so seriously, we could have had some goofy fun. The idea of people having access to the power to make words come true is a pretty decent idea for a show, not just for a 3 minute segment.

    Aroduc says:

    Alternatively, more Ghostbusters episodes.

    Waffling and trying to half heartedly to do a little bit of everything never works out well.
