High School of the Angsty #11 — Rapesense Tingling

September 13th, 2010


Well, this was a giant waste of time.


I like how last episode was about them all whining that adults don’t take them seriously, and next week’s big finale is "THE WORLD IS BEING NUKED." Look, Madhouse, these kids barely managed to save a dog, and they didn’t even manage that without a full arsenal of firearms and multiple combat vehicles. Now you’re nuking them. I THINK THAT YOU’VE SKIPPED A FEW STEPS IN ESCALATION OF SCALE HERE. Meanwhile, still no zombies, and only one quick shot of zombies in the preview for the final episode next week. How’s that undead apocalypse coming again? Oh yeah, it’s not. And now you’re being nuked. At leat there’s a semi-decent chance of everybody dying. That’d be a true victory.

I guess the ‘highlight’ of the episode would be ol’ whose-his-face showing up again, which immediately sets off Rei’s ESP powers so she chases him off. That sure meant… abso-bloody-lutely nothing. What a wonderful use of the penultimate episode of the show. "Nothing happens." Couldn’t he have just crashed his bus through their defenses or tried to take over? I assume that he’s going to anyway, and he already grins and cackles like a madman even with a bayonet in his cheek, so it’s not like they need to establish his sanity. The actual highlight, if any, of the episode was probably just the bad cheesecake shot of the cast dressed up as RPG archetypes. Yes, that is how far standards for this show have fallen.


Oh hey, a zombie. Where’d that come from?

11 Shouts From the Peanut Gallery

  • The Phantom says:

    Next episode: It seems that zombies swarm the mansion and most likely only the main chars survive, to be honest I think everyone will die at one point or another, it’s impossible to save this world without pressing a magical reset button.

  • Silentbrick says:

    Awwww, I would have preferred to see Rei execute a proper “Bayonet thrust” to the face or groin, followed by the ever popular “Pull the bloody trigger to blow them off the bayonet.”

    Bayonet training was fun actually. It’s amazing how worked up you can get. But we all agreed, cadre included that whatever the source of rage this one girl in our ROTC squad had, we NEVER wanted it directed at us. You know, the kind where she doesn’t stop til you’re just little bits scattered around and hanging from nearby trees.

    If Saya as a sexy wizard doesn’t arouse you, you can’t call yourself a man, Aroduc.

  • sora says:

    i don’t know what to say about this show. i love it yet i hate it :/ and now everything ends in a nuke…. this kinds of reminds me of cloverfield lol

  • Mike4DOA says:

    Yay! End of world Theme. Considering all wa know about Shojo manga’s ‘n stuff. They’re not gonna get nuked but golden-eyed. Probably EMP and all failes, then the zombis will move in. They had equipment that was shielded or some telepathic connection between them going on saying there’s a meat sale going on at Takagi’s.
    So me’s expecting great thingsfrom zombie-side. And since it’s the end they might as well get eaten.
    Might be the best end in zombie land. We did ourbest to gather and be eaten.
    *Smack* *Yum* *Burp*

  • Mesousa says:

    Original anime ending, huh?

  • Aex says:

    *sigh* I’m not surprised they changed the mood of the “romance” scene, but it still annoys me. It’s gone from the manga’s “Takashi is unsure what to do” to the anime’s “Takashi is trying to have them both”.

    Well whatever, next time should be interesting. Not like a real ending is possible, so let’s see how they leave off.
