Blood Lad #05 — Info Dump

August 4th, 2013


Blah blah blah blah.


Man. Where’d the pacing and humor go? Especially the former, although this was easily the most humorless episode of the show yet too. This episode went basically nowhere and was about 90% straight up exposition and info dumping. Not even interesting info dumping. On Wolf’s side, it amounted to "go fight this other guy," and on Staz’s side, it summed up to "I sealed your power so you’d stop giving yourself anuerysms, you amnesiatic moron" although the episode was split about two to one in focus on the former. And I wish someone would just outlaw convenient selective amnesia as a plot device already. It’s five episodes in. Do we really need to be reaching for the Unlocking My True Power card already? There was a light dusting of attempted awful melodrama too, or at least there were screaming children and wailing violins, which I’m pretty sure was meant to be some manner of dramatic.

Anyway, crap episode. Easily the worst of this show to date. Read the cliffnotes and you won’t miss anything.

Next Episode:

Fighting the cyborg or whatever thing.

    Manga is saying that humor isn’t coming back. 5 more to go.
