Musical Warfare #10 — And Now, A Training Montage!

March 13th, 2014


I’d make a snide remark about stalling, but I did that on Tuesday.


An episode of absolutely lightning pace, fitting in both a buttload of exposition dumps and generic training power up for basically no reason whatsoever. I’d be more sarcastic, but Tokyo Ravens and no doubt KLK after this probably will make this seem like an eventful set of affairs. At least someone got stabbed… and burst into a fountain of glitter which then transformed into blood, but only the glitter that touched the knife. Magic, man.

The award for most moronic stretching of affairs goes to Mui though. Good god, they even went to great lengths to point out how they had no idea about anything and needed some kind of lead, only for her to clutch the random widget she picked up and look tormented. About what? God only knows. This episode would have been 15 minutes shorter if when someone said “Does anybody have a clue?” she just said “Why yes. This looked shiny so I picked it up. Like the magpie I am.” Oh, but then we wouldn’t have gotten the chance to enjoy a training montage for the desire to grow stronger because growing stronger is the way to be stronger so you can be stronger. And repeat for the umpteenth time about how you don’t care about the greater world or whatever. Actually, it may very well be the first time this show did that, but it’s so goddamned cliche that I don’t even care. 

Next Episode:

Meanwhile, in captivity. Also, cattle mutilation.

    God, I’m just glad this show isn’t getting a second season.

    Does mui’s gun do anything?

    I love anime parents. They can be so mean to kids and neglect them, but all is forgiven if you offer a power up……or a ps4.
