Rifle is Beautiful #02 — And Now, Softball

October 20th, 2019


Next week, different characters.


To be honest, this post was originally going to be Fairy Gone because I can't see myself following either show, but I figured that would have marginally more interesting screenshots. It betrayed my expectations by having another episode of nothing but talking heads with the most complicated thing to animate being someone dropping something. Remember when it had an episode that was 50% a Persona fight against ranting lunatics in a burning church using balloon magic? But, yeah, sure, multiple whole episodes of dudes sitting around talking sounds cool too. I also thought about prodding the Yuru Yuri OVA, but then I remembered that I spurned the last entire series of that, and decided I just didn't want to deal with that, period.

This was not much better, but I guess it does have a 14 year old taking a bath. If you're wondering if it already exhausted its content and would be moving on to something else, the answer is a firm yes. Between the montages in the first half and then the series of short bits on softball and English in the second, it's definitely running low on its rifle club content. It tried to bring things back towards the end by rambling about regionals for nigh on five minutes with the exciting final declaration being "We're gonna compete against… other teams!" Scraping the absolute bottom of the barrel here.

Figuring out what to do with this season is on my to-do list for this week, but hell if I know right now.

    I very much like the part where she’s naked, couldn’t tell you anything else about the episode since they aren’t naked in 95% of it.
