Taboo Tattoo #07 — Dismemberment and Maids

August 15th, 2016


Well, at least those don't require a lot of context.


If that long intro bit was supposed to… uh… intro the episode by providing context and a base for the rest to build off of, it didn't do its job. Maybe a little more time should've been spent on that and a little less on guys cackling madly while firing automatic weapons. Or not. They could've probably dumped us right into the Japanese swordsgirl bisecting and beheading people alongside a maid corps and we wouldn't have been too much worse for wear. Maybe a little harder to follow, but we're already past the pale there. Every now and then, someone declares that this was all according to some plan regarding that one guy that apparently literally everyone in the show has a crush on and I guess I'll just have to take their word for it. Kind of the same as all the bloody stuff happening right off screen thanks to the censoring. Slicing out eyes is okay, but stabbing legs… way too gory to show, so here's some ground.

At least they kept the ever-out-of-place comical bits to a relative minimum while messily murdering both army men and maids, not to mention the exposition about all the various powers they whipped out relatively light too. Well, there was this one particularly bizarre moment where they just slapped some expository text on screen to explain how the protagonist could tell what was going on while being far away. That was… honestly more confusing than anything. Godawful, sure, but certainly different. It certainly limped across the finish line in general after doing a halfway decent job for the rest of the episode. Nothing that a little bit more of a budget, context, and focus on the characters, but I'm stuck comparing it to the rest of this season's offerings, and there's simply no contest there.

    This scalated way to much in an awesome way.

    Its kind of boring that it was everything so much one-sided, it will only make more difficult to belive later than MC can bear this people.

    Also, still triggers me that probably none of this bitches with die the death they deserve and will go home just with a punch and some bruises.

    If that was censorship, that’d be a weird place to put it, especially since by that time we already saw, two dismemberments, a beheading, a and a guy get his eyes slicced out.

    All-in-all this is shaping up to be one of the better shows in recent memory, now if only they knew the proper way to do comedy.

    Im still not sure why the antagonist did not just take the keys
