ID: Invaded #04 — Thinky Bits

90% of what I pay attention to with this show is how weird the faces keep being drawn.

Pet actually shifted to an Amazon Prime schedule, where the next month of episodes appeared last week. I find myself just plain kind of… not caring though. Dorohedoro also had a very yelly, very slapsticky second episode, and I've got to say that yelly, circus music, and CGI are a triumverate that I… am not sure I can deal with.

Impressions:

This continues to be mostly baffling in the spotaneous connections that characters make, or why they even do the things they do. Well, also baffling in how it draws faces. It seems to be a crapshoot as to whether their eyes will be narrow slits that stretch from ear to ear, or maybe the nose and mouth will just be dots. We're just throwing every killer we catch into the magic machine, but none of them are Protagonist enough. Also, didn't last week start with the protagonist getting killed a bazillion times too? But the other dude's just not Good Enough, whatever the hell that means.

The machine doesn't seem tuned all that well anyway if it's picking up any random murderer, and not the specific one that you're looking for. You'd think a copycat that fools the magic machine around which the whole premise is based would be a big important thing, but I guess there's virtually no internal logic to anybody or anything anyway. Yes, yes. The quantum thought particles that were contaminating the mind combobulator were because it was set to frappe instead of puree, and that's how we could tell the rug was suspicious. Of course, it all makes sense now. Like putting too much air in a balloon!

    All the issues I predicted after seeing ep 1 are poping up. There was not enough time with the girl who died for us to have been invested. Method of murder was also strange for a guy who was trying to cover up another murder.

    general plot wise only moment was indeed that there are people who can avoid leaving their murder intent particles which might lead to actual investigating. Whole talk of particles getting blown away reminded me of that funny comment about not opening the window or wifi particles will get blown away.
