Demon Whatever #04 — Daddy Issues

April 25th, 2013


Boy, was that necessary.


I think this is it for me. They’re bound and determined to focus on the serious side of things instead of the comedy, and they’re bloody terrible at it, worse at mixing the two, and perhaps worse, focus endlessly on Amelia who has yet to do a single thing to make me like her. I don’t even know what the hell the point of the five minute flashback at the start was. To establish that she has a father? Good god, you could have probably just cut the entirety of the episode and just started with the new guy appearing instead of jerking off for 22 minutes.

I could forgive the glacial pacing if there was a better focus on the comedy, or even maybe it wasn’t so visually dull, but apparently both that brie flair of animation in episode one and any overtures of being funny are long since passed with only some occasional lipservice every now and then. Utterly ineffective lipservice at that since trying to mix Amelia as a suffering and struggling hero and the cause of her suffering being Laurel and Hardy. There’s this massive disconnect here that White Fox just seems utterly unaware of.

So yeah. Haven’t really enjoyed a single episode and the few sparks I saw of something I might have enjoyed are apparently not where this has any interest in going. It doesn’t even do enough in most episode to mock. Blah blah blah, exposition, nothing happens, more exposition, cliff hanger threatening that something might happen next week followed by… more nothing. Hoo-bloody-ray.

Next Episode:

So much for the cliffhanger, eh?

7 Shouts From the Peanut Gallery

    It can’t be worse than Hero shouting during the whole episode last week.

  • ZakuAbumi says:

    I miss the KHATZU-DÃœM joke.

  • Anonymous says:

    and yet if it was pure comedy you’d be ranting about how it’s such horrible unfunny drivel…

    • Nanaya says:

      Actually, going by pattern recognition, if it was pure (anime) comedy gold he’d be complaining about being deaf because the funnier a joke is the louder it’s shouted.

        Don’t forget flashing lights and screen… uh… boyoyongs or whatever the hell they’re called.
