Four Rhythms #05 — On Your Mark, Get Set, Maintain Status Quo

February 8th, 2016


Well, I guess at least they're not misdrawing faces.


Not to repeat myself like I so very, very often do, but you can take basically everything I said about the third episode and put it here because aside from spitting out a few new character designs for girls that I wouldn't be surprised if we never saw again, it was basically the exact same episode with all the same problems. As much as I want to praise it for actually focusing on the gimmick instead of stuffing it to the side as many anime are wont to do, the gimmick continues to be pretty damn insubstantial hand waving, and it's supposed to be about the characters to begin with. Right now, it's being used to fill empty space with a voice track of pure blather on top of it.

Anyway, the girl that's really good continues to be really good. The total newbie that toally has talent, continues to totally have talent, and the girl that we just spent an entire episode showing that she's improved somewhat has improved somewhat. It wasn't an episode so much as it was a holding pattern. For the third week in a row. Out of five episodes. I'm not saying that all of a sudden one of them needs to reveal that their sister died trying to play Footwings and the angst torments them every day, but let's try to put something into these episodes to at least make them not feel like twenty minutes of just spinning the wheels and the occasional close-up of spandexed ass.

Next Episode:

Oh no. Someone who doesn't play Footwings solely for friendship but for rape overtures.

    At this rate she might score ten points in a match by July!

    I’m not sure how moving up and down is faster than going in a straight line but I think we’re just supposed to be fine with pink making cute silly faces and pay no mind.

      I think they must have figured that a straight race would have been boring, so they’re throwing in all this garbage that makes no sense, like “low yo yo” and attempting to block your opponent, by flying in their way, even though they can literally fly in any direction to avoid you. Also, there’s no clearly defined boundaries, like a real sport would have, which is why you’ll never see LeBron James dribbling through concession stands with the opposing team chasing him.

    I think these Sports Gear Shoes, also negate the G-Force they produce in the Battle… Well, or this Suits are just for Show. But perhaps they have, also skin tight, some sort of Pilot suit. But then, her Heads are not covered. So, yeah. These Shoes do create an Anti-Gravity bubble to protect them inside

    Well, as long their Suits are well done (not only the Boobs and Ass shots!) i do not complain
