Virgin Soul #12 — The Explosive Shocker

June 23rd, 2017

 

That would be an "ow."

Impressions:

That was a fun five or so minutes when the show very nearly decided it was tired of sucking ass. Of course, it was prefaced with plenty of ass sucking, and followed by even more ass sucking, but for a few brief minutes, there was a reminder that this is ostensibly a fantasy adventure. Sadly, it had a hard time shaking the rust off, so it was a particularly idiotic one, where Nina wiped out an entire corps of crossbow guards with a single rock to one's face, followed by chasing off two or three more entire corps by throwing more rocks. Hell, Nina just spontaneously fell out of a mine cart solely to do a 'comedy' bit. Too little, still too enamored of pushing Nina as both hyper competent and an adorable klutz, managing only to exasperate.

At which point, they decided to more or less drop all of that for a series of montages cobbled together from Every RPG Ever; featuring city being destroyed, and ancient magic-science structure rising from ground, both of which set to a nonstop cacophony of operatic yelling. Only instead of a few minutes, it was nearly half the episode, broken up only by the world's most half-assed escape from the guys. Perhaps that could've used a little more time, and the montaging less. I've seen countless ancient magic fortresses rise. And need I remind you that this has another goddamned 12 more episodes to go. although I can easily imagine King Nazi idly sitting on his throne for another entire season.

    The Angels use some kind of EMP Power, so only melee or weapons working with muscles, work now
