Records of the Odyssey Home #04 — Fires Break Out. Everyone Dies.

August 1st, 2013


More bears please.


Stupid, slow to show up Symphogear. I turned away from this for a minute and the voices were all so similar and flat for the most part that about all I could tell from each other was Botan and Noisy Lead, and the latter just because she’d always yell and there’d be a pause for the audience to laugh. The baseball bit at the start was also tremendously disappointing. I was hoping that with leaving the room, they’d get a little more back to the physical humor, whether or not it involved beating up bears again. Alas, no such luck. The whole thing was just them standing rock still having a mental discussion, which I’m pretty sure I’ve seen the exact same thing played completely straight in your typical Prince of Tennis or One Outs form of nonsense.

I did enjoy the iPhone game Botan ED though, so that’s something. The post-ED chibi… thing… was also possibly the most animated (well, it was cell shaded CGI) and cutest the show’s ever been. I don’t know why they’re not using that in the actual show more itself to keep things lively.

    Chibis look really weird in cell-shaded cgi.
