Nanana’s Buried Treasures #01 — Sitting on the Can

April 10th, 2014




And here we have the opposite side of the coin to balance out noitaminA. This one’s claim to fame is finding the most bizarre ways to cram in CGI. I pity whoever had to do those bizarre fountains because you know he’s not going to be able to recycle those for anything unlike all the cars and caves and crap. Then again, it’s probably the same guy they got to play Phantasy Star and whatnot for the added realism of using game footage. Oh, and there’s tits. BOIOING. Yes, they do feel the need to play that sound effect. At least they put in enough effort to animate about 10 seconds of the episode though. Otherwise, it could have been boring.

And then we come to the second half. Almost the entire last 12 minutes was just one long fit of exposition, most of which from a book that literally fell out of the wall while he was on the can. About two minutes spent watching someone read on the toilet. My god, could you not think of any other way to frame that to make it even the slighest bit interesting? It’s not like the first half was killing it to begin with, but ten minutes of expositional dump on the show’s chest wasn’t the Cleveland Steamer that the generic thing needed. It’s kind of sad that it didn’t even pretend to be otherwise either, going so far as to actually list out all the generic traits of one of the generic females before it had to cut things off and get on with the exposition.

So boring, exceedingly poorly written, mostly unanimated, and trying to wear generic as a badge. The best I can think to say is that the protagonist is a slightly better class of doormat than your regular simpering perverted craphead, but it’s still a spineless perverted doormat.

    I don’t think its worth losing an arm temporarily just to poke a boob.

      And clearly the best way if you want to poke a boob when willing to go to the hospital for it, is to wait until you’re in an arm bar.

  • The Phantom says:

    They should have animated when the ghost broke his shoulder that would have been interesting.
