The next horrible act of 'god' will be a wet willy.
This show continues its rapid decline from not even a great starting place, and with it ending with bouncing breasts and a promise of "back to school," it looks like that's only going to continue. Especially as it continues to drift further and further from her acting 'evil' in any way, shape, or form. But anyway, this week continued the prologue, featuring exposition about this world's magic. It also had the standard Japanese mad scientist lunatic character. That's another cliche that seems to have made a massive resurgance which I'd prefer to see get a bullet in its head and never be seen again.
It's hard to even tell what the point of this episode was besides exploiting little girls, both by the screaming mad scientist and the 'god' thing, but fifteen minutes on that for what? That she needs to say a mantra before she uses her magic. That's it. That's the horrible curse laid upon her. Christ, guys. That's the de facto standard for magic in these fantasy worlds. I'm pretty sure that Lina Inverse was pledging herself to every flavor of demon when she cast spells to cook bacon for breakfast and nobody batted an eye. But here, we have a pseudo-character going "Haha! Made you say it! I win!" and the protagonist's response is "Curses! He has bested me!" This is barely schoolyard bully crap at worse.
