Absolute Duo #10 — The Weepies

March 8th, 2015


Guest starring flashbacks and Colonel Sanders.


Another episode of pure schlock that went on about twice as long as it needed to. Instead of awful fanservice, since this is apparently the ending arc, they padded it out with characters being suddenly stricken by The Angst, Batman’s most pathetic supervillain. Nearly every attack of the weepies was also accompanied by a flashback and then characters either groping them or hugging them and telling them to call her mommy. Again, not a joke. Something that apparently is supposed to be intimate and emotional.

And so we take the entire episode to get to the shocking reveal that… Tits has gone dead eyes and is in Sith armor. Great! Now she’s twice as useless! Nobody could have seen that coming at all! It might have also helped if they didn’t go straight from the supposed dead-inside (until saved by the power of hugs) “I’ve become stronger” to the ‘gag’ version in the next episode preview. I guess there was also a conference between random cliches in the second half. My favorite was White Plantation/Slave Owner, although since it’s Japan, there’s an equal chance that was supposed to be Colonel Sanders.

    I would say The Angst has been pretty successful against Batman the last few decades.

  • AzureGrimoire says:

    This is one hell of a PLOT Armor… but seriously, I want to drop this because it raised the ‘Female friend was Mind Controlled’ card.

    Sadly, this scene will be a Gold mine for Doujinshi makers in Japan.
