Gatchaman Crowdssu #11 — Clips Show!

September 23rd, 2013


Why am I relieved that this was only half an episode?


Why thank you, Gatchaman. You knew that I was on vacation and in respect for that, apparently you made only half an episode. It certainly couldn’t be that you ran out of money or when you finished work, you realized you were ten minutes short of a full run so jammed in 12 goddamned minutes of recap clips show. Thinking that would be pessimistic and of course, I’m anything but that. Only happy thoughts here. Like how awesome it was that Team Good Guys continued fighting what were basically completely defenseless grunts. Or the celebration over X coming back simply because Rui wished really hard for it and throwing another tempertantrum. After all, that’s how hacking and programming works, right? The power of teenage whining ‘saves’ the day again.

But I think what I found the most amusing about this episode, and it very well may have been there before and I simply didn’t notice it, was that the ‘live’ faux Youtube stream had a progress bar for both the big poomba’s speech and the clown’s speech. This technology is already so magical that it can tell exactly how long spontaneous live broadcasts will be. It was already clear that the makers of this show have no idea what actually goes on in the universe of social media, but I’m starting to have serious doubt that they’ve ever even used the internet at all.

    I prefer to think that they are keeping the budget for the finale. After episode 7 you can at least let me hope.

    X didn’t comeback to Rui because he is Rui and X cann’t tell the difference between the copy Rui and the real Rui? Am I being too optimistic? :P
