Brynhildr in the Darkness #08 — Screw The Police

May 25th, 2014


Now we’re getting nowhere!


We’re faffing about with a vengeance now. Half the episode was spent on figuring out what the map was, padded out with yet more of the mystifyingly bizarre attempts at… I don’t even know… generating some kind of love triangle centering on a sponge? Some kind of attempt to titilate the viewers? I assume it’s probably the latter, but all they can really be assed to do is talk about how supposedly sexy they’re being.

And when they got there, they just found another mysterious clue to be understood in a future episode (which was the rallying cry of the last third of the damn thing), and beat up some trigger happy police in another particularly inane sequence. They even made a big deal about how they’re only shooting unarmed people  because the ‘unarmed’ started attacking them with explosives, then changed their mind and said that they were going to shoot him anyway. While he was handcuffed. All of the subordinate cops also disappeared partway through the fight, giving the ‘good’ guys ample time to stand around and BS at each other too, so they can’t even write/direct the most basic of scenes competently.

    So, in other Words. Even the Police here is Corrupt… Nice

  • Anon says:

    Dont you know? Police in Animes are Dumb or a Yakuza like combine.. You should know that

  • Sanjuro says:

    So many things didn’t make sense this episode. With the police and the scientists and sponge. But most of all, how could he sleep in the same bed as a naked horny girl and do nothing. My mind is thoroughly boggled.

    • jingoi says:

      His schween only exists when the main girl is being ero, when it’s any other girl MC’s a fucking ken doll.

    • anise_punter says:

      All he needed to say was “Uh, don’t you have one of those eye/teeth monsters in you? I kind of want to avoid that for now.”

  • david says:

    The Police are rather competent in Detective Conan.

    • Eric says:

      And Ghost in the Shell.

    • Longing says:

      I hope you mean “incompetent”. The police in Detective Conan are mind-bogglingly terrible at their jobs.

      They miss key pieces of evidence that children are able to find. They normally assume some elaborately set up death is a suicide without any real investigation. They rely on freelance detective teenagers to solve half their cases. They meekly back down when a potential murder suspect gets angry at being questioned.

      They’re not corrupt… but they are also not competent.

  • datchison18 says:

    The anime with the girls and flags seems more interesting than this, even with everyone not named the main character is speaking an octave above normal level. Why can’t you finish that instead?

  • The Phantom says:

    Probably the memory-changing witch already messed with the police in the past, that explains their weird behavior when someone appears in the church, and how fast they found out what the police were up to.

    • Anon says:

      Why not use a Private Security, that own the Place and the People. No, it must be the “almighty” Police
