Samurai Bride #10 — White Noise

June 7th, 2013


This took so long because I basically slept through it and assumed I missed something, but I did not.


The first 15 minutes of this episode fall into three categories, flashbacks, infodumping, and recycled footage. I am not enthusiastic about that. Not that the remaining few minutes was any better either. There’s a reason that all your Justice League/Buffy/etc shows do not spend hours on end dumping out this crap. Here’s what it’s going to boil down to. Hit the thing until it dies. Yes, sometimes you have to hit it with a certain thing, or hit it in a certain way, but you are in a show where everyone’s only useful points are "hit things" and "flash tits." Your narrative needs to be only sufficient to cover those two bases. There is absolutely no need, or even any want, to pretend like this has some kind of deep and involved plot, let alone that you need to sit down the audience like a bunch of misbehaving seven year olds and explain to them in one long boring tedious horrible spew over the same four to five shots for half the goddamned episode. It doesn’t. It’s a joke to think so. And it’s not a funny one, Arms.

    So…Gisen is Ms. Exoposition now?

    Are we supposed to forget that she’s a whore, ARMS?

  • algorithm says:

    I can see three screenshots of the tedious douchebag from S1.

    Since this season managed to be even more dull than the already very plain first one, which turned into a absolute nightmare when captain douchebag took the helm, now that he is back tears of blood will be shed.

  • ark noir says:

    Yoshi may be a douche, but in S1 he was surely tapping French master samurai ass and that’s more than I can say for
    our weak ass choir boy and his T&A septuplets plus 1 though he’s kissed them…….suppose that’s in the pro column for what its worth.
