God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World #01 — The Gods Are Dicks

January 13th, 2016


Maybe to make up for the constant shots of their asses.


What lofty heights doth man aspire to when I find myself thinking "Wow, they used a montage to show the story passing over a boring part." Especially shocking because the rest of the episode was so goddamned laborious, barely budgeted, and featured a nonstop torrent of exposition. Then the heroic music kicked in, the montage began, the budget swelled, nobody talked for a minute or two, visual gags, and rainbows were vomited. The only thing that stuck out otherwise was the passing shot of the random woman buying a gigantic chunk of meat and breaking the neck of the baby on her back with it.

The whole episode was kind of fighting with itself like that. There was all kinds of lipservice about how the protagonist was totally useless and a loser, to the point where supposedly everyone was having a laugh riot at him dying, which was a wide miss for a 'joke', while acting mostly the opposite. It also seemed to be balking at the reins for all the idiotic exposition about how this was totally just like a game. It thankfully assumed some things were known and just moved on, but then got caught up overexplaining other even more trivial nonsense. 

If the end is how it means to go forward, having moved past the petty dickishness and exposition, there might at least an okayish little character-driven light comedy, but you sure as hell wouldn't know it at all from the first 18 minutes.

7 Shouts From the Peanut Gallery

    Well, at least this one worked well as RPG parody. Lately most fantasy series we get are MMORPG parodies that deludes themselves into thinking they are serious stuff, this at least knows its a parody.

    The daily life montage was superb and actually fun.

    this was actully funny start for rpg parody

  • Goldi says:

    I guess this is the first of the reincarnation into other world types of series that will eventually flood the industry once people start getting tired of the LNs and WNs.

  • Fadeway says:

    most importantly he wasn’t a sack of flour

  • Opulent Rag says:

    It definitely isn’t the worst fantasy/rpg anime ever made, but man does it walk the path. The characters in these types of anime are definitely gonna make me… tolerate this shlock.

    At this point saying the cute, constantly perky female characters are just walking, talking brain hemorrhages is like saying the bloody carcass that was once a horse smells bad.

  • A.Nagy says:

    I’m confused they are going for a video game parody, when the source feels way more like a pen and paper game parody.

  • Bernardo says:

    Them ass shots were 10/10 though
