Searching for the Lost Future #01 — RV x Bitchy Girl 4 Lyfe

October 4th, 2014


That’s my OTP.


It’s a good thing we skipped the OP, otherwise we might not have had time for the Best Friend to rant about how Girl #1 is his childhood friend and all the things that means while it slowly panned over her. She then spent the rest of the episode passive aggressively acting out before being pancaked by an ass-ugly CGI RV, but not really, cause that future will be changed by this naked girl or some rot, no doubt. Frankly, I wouldn’t miss her in the slightest, although none of the cast are winners here. At the start, it looked like they were going to do the standard parade through all the girls, but then they kind of just stopped after only getting through Bitchy Childhood Friend and Athletic Girl. And no, the remainder of the time wasn’t spent on them doing anything or anything happening. Is a little purpose or point to events really so much to ask for?

Again, when bloody nothing happens for twenty minutes, and the one thing that does is already in the process of being time-changed away (as if the title wasn’t clue enough), then what do you expect? Characters are lazy boiler plate cliches that certainly aren’t amusing enough to carry things on their own either. Production is middling to poor, although there’s not anything going on so what the hell is there to animation? It is a bit strange how half the males look like they’re forty years old. I was bored the whole way through, and the seemingly central goal of saving Bitchy from a life as jam on the sidewalk could not interest me less. I doubt they’ll even get to that point until one or two episodes from the end anyway.

  • Sanjuro says:

    Those poorly traced-over CGI models are god-awful. Is that the price we have to pay for feet biting and face pulling?

    This reminded me an old ova I watched based on a dreamcast game called “Interlude”, probably gonna keep watching this one.
