The Rolling Girls #03 — Go Rummage Around in the Dirt

January 24th, 2015


Yes. That is an interesting direction for an interesting episode to take.


Now that they’ve jettisoned the two characters who were doing all the interesting things in the first two episodes, what are they going to replace that with? Not a lot, apparently. They travel to a Comiket themed area, which you’d think would be a fertile ground for… well, something, but about all they seemed to be able to muster were “the head is like security,” and “everyone cosplays.” Even that’s completely toothless, particularly in anime where the norm is everyone looking like they were attacked by a roaving band of post apocalyptic fashion designers.

I think they’re afraid of accidentally somehow offending their audience, so they just skipped making jokes at all, and without the action this week either, this made for an extremely dull twenty minutes. The protagonists still have yet to really do much of anything, let alone differentiate themselves from each other or justify the need to have four of them. They can’t even involve just one of them enough in an episode to have any kind of ripple, let alone goddamned four, and it certainly doesn’t help that they’re just getting shepherded around to be lectured at either. Goddamned do something, you lazy bastards.

3 Shouts From the Peanut Gallery

  • Blas says:

    I liked this show although not understand anything.

    • Germanguy says:

      me, too. I let a bit confussed about this episode end. i give it a 6/10

      Why would she sell these Stones? Did she really need that money bad? Oh well, Greed is strong in this Leader

  • LUNI_TUNZ says:

    This episode didn’t bore me, but it didn’t excite me either.

    They even killed the mystique of Gas mask girl by having her just be a girl who wears a gas mask.

    Milky Holmes TD episode 3 was pretty blah this week, too. Like, I totally don’t buy Marine’s issues with the Milkies, when she takes them to butt-fuck nowhere, to look for fucking nothing. At least Henriette/Arsene had reason to mad at them.
