The Melodramatic Prince and Stoned Cat #10 — Return of Drama Rain

June 15th, 2013


And evil bunnies.


When this episode began with Tsu-small sitting in her room in the dark, hugging her knees with a letter from a foreign country in front of her, I made a groan sort of like "Urrrrrrrnnnnnnngggggh." So of course, the first five minutes was instead all about schtick with the foul mouthed ponytail girl, who I’m still waiting to be relevant in any way. Well, same with the pink haired girl whose name currently escapes me, but at least they pretended like she had something to do with anything for a brief 15 minute span across a couple episodes. Well, I guess the rabbit staring at them is probably still part of her stuff in some inane convoluted way, but let me tell you, there are few things less interesting or capable of creating tension than vaguely evil rabbits.

Anyway, copy paste everything I’ve said otherwise for the last month or so. I think I figured out a big reason why I don’t give a crap about any of them or the spew of exposition as the reason du jour for melodrama each week. Well, besides exposition being the least emotionally effecting way to do anything. They’re all so compartmentalized in their own little worlds with no real interactions between each other. It’s like the moment Goofus steps out of the room, everyone simply stops existing, and even when he’s in the room, you’re lucky if two of them say more than a couple sentences to each other over the entire episode. Maybe this is some kind of extremely high level of Japanese female shunning. Or ironically, just some really particularly low level male wish fulfillment.
