Ikkitousen EE #02 — Dragon Airlines Direct Flight to the Flashback Dimension

December 28th, 2014


Those things can take you anywhere.


Marginally better than the first episode, but these two episodes are still like the start to an extremely disappointing extra arc or maybe season. Who knows? Maybe there was an announcement that I’ve willfully ignored. Wu’s stuff happened almost entirely off screen, Wei involved mostly auras auraing at each other, and Shu simply kept jobbing until it was time for things to be over, at which point they auraed their auras and instantly won. Not without a trip to the flashback dimension first though, because Japan can’t ever stop harping on about how having power is a curse that can only be overcome with friendship. I think they’re jealous.

Same problems as before that I ranted at length last week. Nothing really happens, it’s poorly animated and directed, and Shu needs to be thrown into a sarlacc because good god, they have done nothing but repeat the same “We believe in Liu Bei and protecting our friends!” crap since the second season. The only reason they didn’t in the first is because they didn’t exist. You know, guys, Zhang Fei was a drunken bastard who ended up killed by his own men, and Guan Yu basically singlehandedly screwed up all relations between Wu and Shu by being a giant dick. I know you’ve already killed Sima Yi… multiple times… but how about we move on? And no, not a thousand years later to the Sengoku era somehow.


Next Episode:


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

    Nothing happens because the only goal is fanservice, the fight were always just a excuse.
