Magical Warfare #07 — Narcolepsy Saves the Day

February 20th, 2014


Look at me not making a Dream Team joke.


At least someone got slapped. It was basically a training episode and we all know how bloody enthralling those are. And one where you go into your own sword to fight a manifestation of itself to then magically become stronger? Ugh. Be we Bleach or be we noseless magical nonsense? I’ve never been a great fan of the use of prophetic dream nonsense to try to build tension instead of just… you know… having something actually happen, but someone being carried off doesn’t even rank particularly high on the doom-o-meter.

I guess if you cut out all the painly obvious padding, the Valentines stuff, the random bikini bit, pudding dreams, etc, then that probably slices the episode in half and leaves a split between “Blondie’s going to get tentacle raped by a chomp,” “angsty family time,” and “new form power up!” So now we know that maybe if you buy into the whole spiel, the useless female love interest, who an antagonist is obsessed with, might be kidnapped at some point. Whoa, guys. Save something for Sweeps.

Next Episode:

Heads on heads and more heads.

    Wow, all of a sudden, Fairy Tail seems to be more fun to watch than this.

    Given enough time, could Minori eat that pudding?

  • anise_punter says:

    I feel like things like image 35 happen way more often than they should across anime.

  • The Phantom says:

    Other than the love triangle that looks painful obvious which way is going to swing, this is tediously boring, I suppose that the best battle scenes are already over?
