Bathing in the Trunxx #07 — And Now, Filler

February 24th, 2018


Not even passable filler.


This is the kind of episode where I'm tempted to flex my creative writing muscles, make something up for a paragraph, and then just go "Nah, it was just a beach episode." Instead, "It was just a beach episode." It was such a beach episode that it had a special ED so they could provide a few more closeups of the girls in bikinis that they somehow couldn't work into the actual episode. What happened? Nothing. They found an abandoned village, I guess, and poked around in it. What was meant to titillate? The mere fact that the girls were in swimsuits. And, I suppose, at a beach. So even as far as beach episodes go, this ranks pretty low. You're already steering moaning teenage girls by their asses. I don't think some slapstick involving sea cucumbers or octopus tentacles would be too far. Not that it'd make things better either, but at least you could pretend like the 'comedy' was the point of the episode, rather than simply… that they're at a beach?

    Remember when the Milky Holmes went to the beach and ended up trapped into some mansion full of booby traps? Or that other time they went at the beach and ended up in a prison full of inmates milking sea cucumbers?

    Maybe next episode half of them will die, I dunno wishful thinking.

    I feel like Malcolm right now “Ah, now eventually you do plan to have klaxosaurs on your, on your klaxosaurs show, right? Hello?”

    Just meh. Mid-level ecchi isn’t enough to make me continue. They need to spice things up and hopefully that reproduction book will lead to Ichigo going “yandere” on Hiro.
