Daybreak Illusion #08 — Dark World Edition

August 24th, 2013


Apparently the character/monster designer got tired of doing work.


Ooookay. Apparently we’re sort of half-abandoning the whole daemonia thing now to go all Nintendo and have them fight their dark selves. Not doing much to really assure me that they have any idea what they’re doing though, least of all the sudden shift to Ginka in the second half. If you just stopped about 12 minutes in, the episode was unmistakably about Luna. Ginka doesn’t even make much sense after the whole episode about her being the one who has it all together. Hell, she was just curious and introspective about the whole thing. 

And like the previous time they did this, that makes it a little hard to see the point of it all. You get into this kind of weird situation where all the rest of the characters are vicariously having fits for her, but with them doing that for literally everyone, including the various child murderers that they don’t even know, it’s far from convincing. Doubly so when they spend more time and effort on the murderers. I’m not even convinced that she’s really dead. Something about disappearing in magical explosions of magic in a world made of magic fails to inspire, especially with how it hasn’t shied away from being bloody for shock value before. I wouldn’t be shocked if she was strung up in the baddie’s lair or wearing an opera mask next week.

    Dark selves? I don’t feel younger.

  • ZakuAbumi says:

    So… any plans on checking out Tenkai Knights?

    • Aroduc says:

      Right after I get to the new Gyrozetter.

      • ZakuAbumi says:

        Well, you did give Gyrozetter’s first episode a try, so consistency (you know, the thing you tend to praise all the time) clearly wants you to give TK a chance too.

        • jingoi says:

          don’t forget to review Beyblade Shogun Steel!

        • Aroduc says:

          When they remake my life, they’ll do a better job editing the narrative structure.

          It’s not the first kid’s toy advertisement I’ve skipped. It won’t be the last.

    the good thing about ginka death was that she died as warrior with a smile and with no regrets

  • OverMaster says:

    “with a smile and with no regrets”

    Unlike the viewers!

      This will not end good… I see all the lolis dying. T_T
      Shota Palpatine is doing a good job.
