Lard Opera Milky Holmes #23 — Merry Lardmas

March 15th, 2012


At least he didn’t have lard levels.


Fatty-turned-bishie declares himself the God of Lard and we proceed to have to sit through what was mostly indistinguishable from a terrible episode of Dragonball Z or Bleach only with "Lard" in place of "Power Level" or "Spirit Energy" or whatever the hell kids are calling it these days. It feels more at home with a bad 1950s comic book villain, like Calendar Man, only instead of having all manner of terrible puns, they just say "lard" for everything. There were a few decent bits here and there, like Cordy trying to locate his Icarus form without realizing that they were all somehow standing on his crotch, and most of the Lardmas bit at the end, but the rest was fairly tedious. I guess at least it wasn’t the usual tedium for this season of being unable to focus for long enough to even tell a decent joke, but using the same one for probably about fifteen minutes isn’t improving matters either.

Arsene wandered back in to save the day after learning a valuable lesson while fighting a Milky Holmes fangirl too, thus completely restoring the status quo to how it was before she wandered off. I’m not entirely sure why she learned her lesson since she seemed to be having a blast stealing giant swords and cutting off drill hair, but okay. We can just say that a couple sentences completely changed her outlook. It fits right in line with everything else this season having the attention span of a caffeine-addled gerbil. Although I suspect that a chunk of it may have also been them not realizing that there was only one episode left.



Rebuilding the school before undoubtedly losing their toys again.

    “God of Lard”? These names are just classic.

    I’m pretty sure the Galaxy Angel Troupe would have been proud of that episode.

  • Sakura says:

    This was actually the best episode of an excellent series (possibly the best series of 2012). I just think you have poor taste! Or maybe you are just bashing MH to show how mature and edgy you are. ^__^

    Did you forget she was a character from season 1?
