Gatchaman Crowdssu Insight #05 — Who’s Ready For Some Pie Charts!?

August 1st, 2015


Western politics would probably make the writers’ heads explode.


An episode consisting entirely of talking heads (plus that intro sequence’s music designed to drive people mad), and then they threw themselves a confetti party for a job well done. All the excitement of broadcast news. In a world where the average internet user is totally benign, and everyone loves and admires an alien who comes to Earth and immediately starts manifesting and eating people’s thoughts, while the writers keep futilely trying to convince us that they understand how society works by missing the eight thousand elephants in the room. All this is done through exposition, exposition, exposition, and exposition. This season doesn’t even have a killer clown running around murdering things to provide any kind of direction. They’re just hanging around spouting off how they want to do good deeds in a vacuum at this point.

Yeah, I’ve had enough of this. They might as well start over from scratch at this point because they’ve accomplished absolutely nothing and over a month in, this is still flailing around without any solid direction in mind. Nothing on the horizon. No characters being developed. Nada. This has been boring and shows no signs of changing. Rui’s the only one who’s been slightly part of ‘events’, such as they are, and he responded to it in the most insane manner possible. Seeya, Hajimessu’s talking boobs. I’m out.

    It feels like I’ve only watched one episode of this and 100 episodes at the same time.
