Clockwork Planet #03 — Blue Balled

April 20th, 2017

Good grief.


I keep waiting for this to have a moment, as ill-defined as I'm aware that is. A climax, I suppose. It has some characters that aren't awful. It has at least a thin veneer of a plot. It has some motions towards action. But it has yet to follow through on any of them to hit an actual high, and after the particularly godawful 'climax' of this episode, it's looking like it never will. There's this big confrontation scene, odds are awful, protagonist backs are up against the wall, big transformation, and then… nothing. Nothing at all. Didn't even have the grace to try to hide it between episodes. Just goes "Welp, here's my special attack name" and that's it. Explosion, and battle won. That's that. Better luck next time, bad guys. Nothing but the traditional waking-up-in-bed-with-the-girlfriend-looking-over-them-to-say-that-they-shouldn't-have-pushed-themselves-so-hard scene remaining. If that's the best that this show is going to have to offer, it's a hard argument to keep tuning in.

    This show should just be about Marie and her robot buddy, the last couple episodes their the only characters I found don’t make me want to projectile vomit, and they don’t subject us to their pseudo-Chobits bullshit.

    Reminds me of some old B-Movie Sci-Fi. Where Humanity travel to the Sun to avoid an Mega Sunflare outburst that destry Earth. Some powerful landlords try to sabotage this mission, because they hope to gain easy money. But they do not see, that this Sun flare burn the entire Planet. they speculate that it just burn a big amount of Earth so they can buy it very cheap, to sell it with high profit when rebuilding…

    here is the same, the Military and the Guild, try to shift the blame on her, and then want to gain profit from all this accident… But they forget that they need some Creator to fix this hole

    So in the end, its all about greedy Money above men lives..
