A Sister’s All You Need #10 — Animal Abuse

December 10th, 2017

 

We've run out of ideas, haven't we?

Impressions:

Yet another rather weak episode that seemed pieced together from random notes on the cutting floor. It starts with an overly melodramatic flashback about all the family issues and how he came to have a step-'brother,' so the episode would be about that, right? Nah. 'He' wanders off to basically just have a bath with the sexual harasser accountant and recap, review, and explain the reveal that he's a girl from a month or so back. They then drop this completely for the next third of the episode for a zoo montage with a focus on pendulous flopping things. And I'm not talking about the animal testicles. Christ. Apparently when you put boobs in a tight shirt, they grow four sizes, bounce twice as slowly, and three times as far. The rest of the episode would be spent on… yet another goddamned date montage. And if the episode wasn't clearly a mess enough of random scraps going nowhere for no point, we cut over to Whose-His-Face brooding over his failed adaptation some more.

God only knows what they were thinking with this episode. Probably just "Crap, we have to make another episode?" There were three goddamned montages. Nothing connects from one scene to the next, and there's nothing going on. Not even the slightest excuse for any kind of tiny within-episode conflict or growth, let alone any real attempts at humor besides Nayuta's censored non-sequiturs, and they lost their lustre a long time ago.

    I think at this point the source just ran dry of ideas and they are doing scraps from multiple chapters and calling it a day. Whats for the finale? Itsuki realizing her obvious brother is actually his little sister? (non related by blood… by how much this series made fun of cliches in the beginning, it uses them an awful lot now that the initial plot has run dry).

    I feel like that’s been accurate for at least a month now, if not longer.
