The Rolling Girls #05 — Ready, Set, Do Nothing!

February 7th, 2015


Steady… Steady… Steady…

As mentioned, the Japanese broadcast was a bit delayed. This is… just quicker and easier for me. Even with all the errors. 


I think this arc may be even more of a narrative mess than the last one. There’s the new girl, who has chronic man problems, but there’s also some random cafe guy who’s her biggest superfan or something, and all she wants in life is to stop being a disappointment to her father and give her magic rock back to her boyfriend, who happens to be the mysterious taxi service Racer X, who some people need to get to sign some forms to have a proper gang fight or something, which is about the closest thing that this episode came to a joke.

Anyway, the new area is motorcycle/racing themed, which you’d think would lead to a Speed Racer or Initial D parody or something, but that would obviously require too much thought and/or something happening. Once again, the main characters do jack all, simply bumble from one place to the next to listen to various people blather at them, although that seems to be a trait shared by all the characters since they threw out the only two decent ones. Who am I supposed to root for when the antagonist continues to be “being too insecure to do anything?”

    Still better than Cross Ange.

  • Sanjuro says:

    It seems like everyone but the person having the flashback doesn’t age.

  • anise_punter says:

    Did they just come up with the title and decide they’d fill in the blanks from there? This has… not been a good show.

    • Germanguy says:

      Yep, the “Flow” so far is not right. It has to many steppingstones until now. it is not really an enjoyment so far

  • Mesousa2877 says:

    So…no one’s gonna talk about the scene where there’s a talking BIKE that mutters what it says?

    Or the random explosions?

    This show can still be kooky even WITHOUT the super powers.

    • Germanguy says:

      right now, i am more watching my feet to not fall above these Story stones, that look what happen over our heads

    • Longing says:

      Well, I’m pretty sure that it was the rider talking as he was revving his bike.

      And I believe the statues exploding was explained as the biker gang’s doing.

      • Germanguy says:

        All other Girls so far, found this Heart stone. They appeared from the Sky

        But now, this Heart stone, was in original just a piece of glowing junk, that this Girl turned into a Heart stone as we know now

        Right… what happen with the other ones that fallen from the Sky? a Big tornado got inside the “Mother House” and spread the Heart Stone collection all over Nippon?
