Kyousougiga #09 — The Two Minute Monologue Walk

December 12th, 2013


I'm glad this season is drawing to a close.


There are a number of ways you can make a pretty good guess about when the creators of a show have simply stopped trying at all, but a goddamned 126 second pan ranks up there with the best of them. The antagonists that I thought would give the show a little direction in its eleventh hour were also summarily dispatched with less pomp and circumstance than graduating third grade before they shuffled back off into obscurity again. I'm so glad they could be a part of the show.

Myoue the Senior ended up being the true bad guy because he's actually a god, or has delusions of godhood, or… does it even really matter? It took ten excruciatingly long monologuing minutes to even get there at all, including the aforementioned two minute stroll, to go from A wanting to destroy the world for whatever reason to B wanting to destroy the world for whatever reason. Fifteen before any world destroying actually began. But at least mindraping and world destruction can still be countered by the power of hugs and insert songs. You've really been trying my patience with this nonsense lately, Japan.

    So, yeah, the guys who are animating One Piece made this?

    I still don’t believe it.

    Or maybe Toei is just getting desperate in the niche market.

    That two minute monologue walk sure reminded me a lot of Monogatari II, ‘cept it wasn’t stretched to twenty minutes and might have actually had a point. I’m not sure though.

    But hey, unlike aforementioned show, at least this one looks good and they upped their game for the animation a bit. For Kill la Kill too, for that matter! It’s like Christmas come early, Aroduc!
