Akame #20 — Let Me Tell You How Comically Evil I Am

November 16th, 2014


Good. The ‘fight’ was boring me anyway.


Same ol’, same ol’. Action scene crippled by posturing, misplaced sentimentality for a character that has been so inconsequential that none has ever existed, and still rising no greater than “We are in the same 500 meter area… Let us kung fu fight!”, not to mention the usual poor animation. I think my favorite part was the swarm of dumbasses that just stood around the battle watching the entire time. Or would have if they weren’t wearing their hoods over their faces. …Or if the director/animators forgot they existed so they suddenly blipped out of existence entirely between scene changes only to be summoned back when the awesome censoring appeared. Or maybe it was Tatsumi being defeated by Some Guy shouting. That was also a spectacular bit of fighting.

Next Episode:

Is it over yet?

  • ZakuAbumi says:

    Remember when last episode, Najenda was up against Esdeath and Kurome/Wave vs. Leone/Su was a thing?

    The writing didn’t!

  • algorithm says:

    Anime original writing is as impressive as the source material’s.

  • kenuran says:

    Well that Urobuchi movie Expelled from Paradise movie is out and about now.

    You gonna watch it? Assuming the off-chance that you would actually watch this movie.

    • Aroduc says:


      Maybe on/for Tuesday.

      Don’t know word one about it, but… Toei and not really an Urobuchi fan anyway, so very likely I’ll zone out pretty fast.

      I’m also so, so far behind on where I wanted to be with translating lately. Must use holiday time off to catch up for once…

      • Aroduc says:

        Oh. It’s janky cell shaded CGI being used for an hour and a half of talking heads and a few minutes of space ships going pew pew.

        WHAT JOY.

        Yeeeah, this ain’t happening.
