Zodiac War #02 — The Hand That Feeds You

October 10th, 2017

 

If you want wit, you're not going to find it here.

Impressions:

A very dull and uneventful episode. It does confirm that apparently we're going to be popping around from character backstory to character backstory each week. It skated a little bit last week on setup and introduction, but now that those are out of the way, things need to get moving. I'm not sure that I could really say that I learned a single damn new thing this week about anything, and aside from the character of the week getting offed by a Rio carnival dancer, the only other stuff going on was about three little 20 second bits of setup. Maybe we'll get to them later, maybe not. Battle royale has to have battle.

The main two things that it needs to do if it's sticking by the character of the week routine is keep them at least episodically interesting, and to keep the story in the present moving forward. It didn't really do either of those this week. Turns out that Dog of the Week is just as longwinded as Boar of the Week was, but lacked the charisma of crazypants, any kind of noteworthy event or motivation in his backstory, anything in the way of action scenes, or a particularly satisfying death. There is something to be said for the way he was unceremoniously popped, but it wasn't jarring or sudden enough. It also needs to NOT kill a character of the week, preferable in the next one or two, or it'll lose any hope of tension.

    Boar wasn’t exactly completly unexpected, but it had a certain level of “surprise”, not much but still something. This one however was quite obvious since the beginning.

    Although for some seconds I thought he injected her an aphrodisiac to submit her to his will…I’m guess I’m Reading too much hentai, but eh, don’t tell me that wouldn’t have been more interesting
