Blade Dance #08 — So You Think You Can Dance?

September 1st, 2014


Christ, was that an awful ending to this awful arc.

A little later than usual because I slept in for Labor Day.


Quit goddamned padding everything out. This goes for all shows this season. Good god. After Fianna used the Explosion of Plot Delayance, they spent the next third of the episode simply sitting around in the cave having a little chat. Then, nearly ten minutes into the episode, they finally got up off their asses, continued their cave exploration (sadly not a euphemism) and immediately stumbled upon… a goddamned spring bath. That was all they accomplished in half the episode.

Then it finally got around to finishing the fight it started in the last minute of the previous episode. And by fight, I obviously mean mostly standing around yapping at each other. What brief bits of motion that existed were primarily comprised of speedlines. Didn’t even actually show the stabbing. They just went from being on opposite sides of the room to one of them having an inch of blade stuck in him. And then they defeated him by dancing at him while he convulsed, and then when he made them convulse, they turned the tables by pulling a giant robot out of their asses. Go team.

Next Episode:

If you’re reading this, then I’ve forgotten to change the template.

    Oh well… at least the knee-socks lovers will probably get something out of this series.

    Seriously, I have no idea how they are going to end this 12/13 episode series since the biggest arc of all would take up an entire season of 12/13 by itself.

    You’ll be surprised to hear that this won’t be the last time where they go bathing before/in the middle of a fight… Yup, it is that stupid.
