Blood Lad #04 — Deviwiser

July 28th, 2013


They couldn’t think of Bloodweiser? Really? Really?


Another kind of weirdly slow episode compared to the first two episodes. Almost the entire first three fourths were spent just explaining why Staz doesn’t want to go see his brother and Bell seducing him into going to do it various ways. Spending most of an episode having to convince the main character to continue the plot just seems wrong and wasn’t winning Staz any points. He did seem to finally notice females for the first time in the series, however brief his leering at Bell’s ass was. That whole part was also a little disappointingly void of humor, instead trying to fill the time with Bell blushing about these strange new big girl feelings she’s having about flashing her girl bits to a guy.

They eventually go to his little sister, the crazy with the axe, in a somewhat weirdly overanimated little action sequence. I guess all the Bell blushing and lack of jiggling isn’t very expensive to animate and they found themselves with a surplus. The whole episode was also interspersed with Fuyumi and Wolf’s antics, mostly of her slowly passing out, adequately fulfilling her roll as barely mobile pile of jelly, but that didn’t really go anywhere so I’m assuming it’s just going to be played off as the world’s slowest gag next week. Or be a horrible excuse for some melodrama this show doesn’t need, but I’ll lean toward the former.

Next Episode:

Finally reach his brother.
