Night Raid #12 — Hooray Japan, Boo China

June 21st, 2010


At least the cat didn’t show up.


Nothing like retconning and random character insertions to really make you appreciate the times when this show was watchably bad instead of… this. Half the buildup to the finale got rewritten as illusions/mind tricks and the bad guy’s big final logical plan consists of "Nuking a city is an atrocity. Therefore, to stop people from nuking cities, I’ll nuke a city." Yeah, that’s bloody ironclad logic right there. China doesn’t need Shanghai anyway, and there’s no reason at all that a Japanese national taking out an entire city would have any reprecussions. None at all. 

Frankly, I’d welcome an alien invasion at this point. Or hell, if the finale is Aoi transforming into a giant robot and then wielding the Oriental Pearl Tower as a beam sword, that would be a marked improvement. I don’t care if it’s not built yet. Nothing else in this show makes a damn bit of sense either. Did these soldiers just forget that they have guns? How exactly does super sight make a man into an unstoppable warrior? Why doesn’t one of these teleporters just port the enemies a few miles away or a couple miles into the air? Who knows.

There wasn’t a preview at the end of the episode, unless you count a shot of a tree branch blowing in the wind.
