Infinite Stratos #23 — Where The Budget Ran Out

December 5th, 2013


I seriously think they just ran out of money to animate a scene and didn’t want to even try.


Cecilia wants to cook for Iiiichika. But she’s baaaaaaaad at it. Something that obviously required a third of the episode to set up, to say nothing of another twelve minutes to go through, and featuring the hilarious jokes like her coloring/perfuming food because she lacks a functioning brain. I’d be harsher, but I’m pretty sure anybody with a single tastebud would be able to tell if someone’s covered their food with basically pesticide. Therefore, I feel safe in concluding that they’re all four pack a day chain smokers.

And there was also the joke where they show various shots of ceilings, walls, and scenery, with vaguely suggestive dialogue. A joke so hilarious, they did it twice. And then a third time for the ‘action’ scene, but with gunfire. I assume. It was some kind of zapping noise and there was a rifle pointed at Bunny Ears before it cut away to exciting shots of walls. In a show that’s already cheap as hell a lot of the time, that was embarrassingly godawful. Who do they think they are, Shaft? 

Next Episode:


Side characters and scenery.

4 Shouts From the Peanut Gallery

  • FlameStrike says:

    Thanks for your sacrifice in watching bad shows like these so the rest of us don’t have to. I got a good laugh at the summary too!

  • The Phantom says:

    It was VERY notorious how they started showing some random thing in the middle of a supposed fight, very very very cheap, shameless almost. Rest of the episode was absolute trash.

    Next episode: The great revelation: (that we all are very aware anyway) Ichika is girl.

  • Fate says:

    That would be a fantastic and realistic twist. Explains so much.

  • algorithm says:

    That was probably the high point of this episode.
