Crawl! Nyarlko #06 — Console Wars

May 14th, 2012


Was that even supposed to be a joke?


As expected, the punchline to the whole thing as stupid. They went off together to check out a game system in development. And apparently these jokes are hilarious because instead of PS3, they call it the HS3. It’s a joke because… why again exactly? You spent the last fifteen minutes of the show trying to pretend like it was serious? A reference is not in itself a joke. Do something with it. The whole thing was like bad exposition from Neptunia about creating a perfect console that nobody would ever need to buy games from again… only, like always, instead of overplaying it as they could’ve/should’ve to turn that into an actual joke, it was just flatly stated and then the logical "no, that won’t work" arguments stated in turn. I take it back. That’s far worse than what I’d expect from Neptunia. Neptunia.

Part B was just literally tacked on because I suspect they ran out of content five minutes from the end of the episode. I guess it’s preferable to stretching out an already poor bit another 5 minutes, but both were still weak as hell. Admittedly, when the CM eyecatch popped up, my first thought was "oh god, has it only been 10 minutes so far?" but thankfully, it was just tossed in 5 minutes from the end of the episode. Japanese broadcasting is silly. Then they all just wandered off to the generic hot spring/beach for not even any particularly interesting swimsuits. At least Hastur wasn’t in a banana hammock, although the surprise banana hammock is generally a good quick way to get a laugh. Nobody ever suspects the hammock.


Continuing beach/hot springs nonsense.

9 Shouts From the Peanut Gallery

  • Newprimus says:

    And thus our poor Mahiro-kun probed a grey from outer space. Or vice versa.

    • Benigmatica says:

      Oh wait… Mahiro is not only lose his virginity to Nyaruko-san, but his butt got shove too!

      Yet, I think it won’t happen on the next episode!

  • Kaisos says:

    Aroduc, I hate to ask, but why are you taking this show seriously? It sure isn’t taking itself seriously.

    • Newprimus says:

      Isn’t that kind of the whole point?

    • Aroduc says:

      Because all comedies are not created equal.

    • Kefit says:

      He’s not taking it seriously, he’s expecting it to be funny enough to smile at or god forbid laugh. This episode failed to deliver on that front.

      It would be really nice if this show went back to the manic energy delivered by ep1, but alas that seems to be gone forever. MM! also had a really drastic decrease in quality after a few episodes. I wonder why this director just can’t seem to keep it going.

  • sato says:

    You can’t be “The Aroduc” if you don’t take everything seriously :D

  • Jack says:

    Wow…de-flowered by a Lovecraft creation. Be interested to see the children in Season 2. Poor Hastur. Hastur does have the best hair.

    And my Saya-chan still being buried under the mud called “Eroge industry”…
