School-Live #10 — 80% Chance of Melodramatic Precipitation

September 10th, 2015


What convenient rain and lightning strikes.


You’d think they’d be involving the character around whom the whole gimmick this show is based on in the ending arc of whose-her-face being bitten, but not so far! Barely even showed up at all this week! Instead, we got shots of girls looking either pensive or constipated in their rainy, gray, sad world, while they reminisced about the past and were rainy, gray, and said themselves. Also, that was the only thing that happened this week, so I could spend the rest of this post humming the Beer Barrel Polka and I think we’d all get about the same from it.

And yet, I still kind of find myself surprised that they didn’t drag the hell out of both the dog and zombie teacher thing to end on it, even if I couldn’t really say what the hell the first 15 minutes of the episode were really supposed to be about. The usual flashbacks and staring at melodramatic rain to set the melodramatic mood before melodrama, I guess. Even the ‘content’ was stretched out by cutting away at the ‘important’ parts only to flash back a minute or two later to show how dramatic the scene that we just skipped over actually was. Why not just, you know, show things as they happen? The space-time continuum would sure appreciate it.

Floors and walls.

    It was only a matter of time until they went after the constipated girls fandom.

  • Kitsu says:

    I care about this girls so I hope they live and proof you are wrong

    This show got fucking pathetic really fast.
    I laughed so hard during the dog scene this episode, he apparently gained super powers but all she had to do was hold her shovel in front of her and the dumbass dog knocked itself out by running into, totally was asking for a “eh, that’s it?” reaction.
    And them crying over the dog too, I for one am happy as hell that piece of shit plot device is dead.
    That “it hasn’t rained this hard in a while” comment at the end too == “man, shit’s about to go down”.

    And seriously, there’s medicine in the school? And no one came to get it? Bet the teacher must have the only one who knew about it because it was passed down on her family or some random shit.

  • The Phantom says:

    Implied that the other girl that was in the mall with short hair girl is in the school as well, as the dog clearly went for her.

    Medicine is implied to not work, so this is going Rocks falls, everybody dies, it IS better than fanservice and cute girls doing nothing anyway.

    So the way things are going: shovel girl will probably bite big-tits girl, short hair will be bitten by her ex-friend, and crazy girl will probably survive on her own and live in her own fantasies.
