The Four Rhythms Beyond the Blue #01 — And Now I Can’t Hear

January 11th, 2016


It's like sugar and rape whistles had a baby.

A very, very, very stupid baby.


Speaking of harems where the protagonist might as well be replaced with a sack of flour… And yet, I find myself wishing that they had spent more time on him. He's less the protagonist of this episode though as he is the only one with a penis. The one who ate up the entire time was the pink haired beast that seemed to be written for an entirely different setting. She bears only the most tenuous of connections to reality and has no volume below "nasal shout," although considering that they keep cranking up the volume of the elevator music to ridiculous levels, it's hard to blame her for feeling like she needs to shout. The music all around here was off in its own obnoxious world having little to no connection with the one the story or events were taking place in. Possibly the same LSD-fueled hyperactive one Pink came from.

It's kind of hard to get a read on it otherwise. I want to say it was actually nicely visually expressive, and moved along a lot better and with less overtly obnoxious narration than one would expect a sports romance porn game adaptation to have, but since every step of the way was spent listening to the nasal shouting of a character with genuine brain damage only barely audible over the blaring music, rarely did a minute go by without me wincing from the audio in some way. Minimizing the male lead's role if he wasn't going to be matter in the episode was a smart idea at least, although given all the other bad cliches, tour of girls, and his neighbor changing right in front of his window, I really have to think that was more an accident than anything.

Next Episode:


Ball gag desperately needed.

    Uh…wait, they can fly?

    This sounds bizarrely similar to your recap for Robotics;Notes, which sure looks like a weird comparison to this show not having watched it.

    Anyone have an idea if this is one of those “starts bubbly but then oh my god we’re so serious look people are crying” kind of shows that I always end up hating?

  • Paulo27 says:

    The comedy in this was actually pretty good, femMC is so retarded that her moments go past the annoying and straight into the fun zone.

  • The Phantom says:

    I was expecting something similar to Air Gear, not this brain-dead parade of girls flying and doing silly faces, and my gosh this red haired girl was fucking annoying.
