GOSICK #12 — Kazuya’s Riddle Corner

April 8th, 2011

…I don’t even know what to say. The show has been reduced to doing brain teasers. Terrible brain teasers. The rest of the episode was picnics and Kazuya having flashbacks to Japan. Because Kazuya is such an interesting and engaging character and what’s really entrancing about this show are the picnics. That’s it. I’m tapping out for good. The show had its moments… 10 episodes ago… but this godawful writing and horrible horrible Kazuya are not worth the slim hope that it might do something non-awful again.

7 Shouts From the Peanut Gallery

  • DMZ says:

    I’m surprised you lasted this long. I got out around episode 6. You deserve an A for effort!

  • Jack says:

    I’m hanging in there. I like to finish what I begin. Hoping for a second season.

    Appreciate you blogging up to here. Thanks.

  • Mesousa says:

    Victorique, it’s not your fault.

    It’s not your fault, Victorique. Japan has a male lead fetish sometimes.

  • Joel says:

    In another, perfect world this would have been a slightly more serious Detective Conan with a loli and without the filler. Instead we got Sherlock Holmes Make-believe Tea Party.

  • Travis says:

    This is not a mystery.

    It is not a closed-room, a whodunnit, whydunnit, or even a whoseonfirst. It is not about logical empirical deduction, detective’s intuition, or even accidental armchair sleuthery. In short – why.

    Just… Why. Anyway, thanks for keeping us covered this long. Way longer than I’d have lasted.

  • Arabesque says:

    @Jack I’m not sure how to break this to you, but there wont be a second season. This is the half way point, and after episode 24, the entire series will be completely adapted.

    Sorry :P

    I’m personally enjoying this as a bit of a guilty pleasure, so the bad mystery (or lack of) doesn’t bother me much.

    On the upside, you’ve got only 12 more episodes to go from here on out. You’re half way there Aroduc!

    Say, did someone saw that double rainbow on this episode?

    I think BONES likes to put memes on their anime lately…
