Samurai Bride #07 — Training Arc

May 17th, 2013


So much for her taking over as the only competent character in the show.


Essentially a very brief training arc where they try to pass the time with yet more of Kanetsugu’s now ground-into-a-bloody-stump ‘slapstick’ routine culminating in the world’s longest grope while auras flare, people use the power of friendship and struggle against ill-defined magic for magic’s sake, with such tremendous feats of drama as "screaming her name", "yelling that X can’t take any more of this", and "putting one’s hand on someone’s back and letting their super friendship shine through" while one person writhes around on the ground due to the magical pain of magic which totally wasn’t just fabricated on the spot or anything.

And then, Keiji’s part in the story over, she goes off to job to the blue squad in a particularly montage-a-riffic sequence of each of them simply hitting her in turn, and find a new shirt, before riding off into the sunset. Hip hip hooray. There’s just something about the big bad’s sitting 15 feet away the entire show yet having no nefarious plan that is killing my already minimal ability to care about this show first thing in the morning. At least introduce something going on. They’re not even ignoring anything to putz around. Just putzing around.

7 Shouts From the Peanut Gallery

  • algorithm says:

    This show is turning you KLAC.

  • Is there really any kind of story being told here, or is it just fan service and harem antics?

    • Mesousa2877 says:

      Fanservice, but thankfully, no harem antics.


    • Aroduc says:

      Despite what the first episode may have teased, or if the first season is to repeat itself, a swift descent into madness, inanity, and LSD fueled imaginations of conspiracy and super soldier breeding programs masterminded from France, probably not.

  • The Phantom says:

    Date a live 8 missing, you dropped the show?

    • Aroduc says:

      First, I know I spoil you, but sometimes I sleep in too.

      Second, you’re asking this close to an hour before I’ve posted it for the last two months and about 30 minutes after it even aired period, let alone became available on something other than a Niconico direct stream.

        Some people need to fap to those Spirits screencaps you know. Still better than wanting Overdroppedlord one day before it airs.
