God’s Blessings #13 — Yelling About Being Pedophiles

January 18th, 2017

Now I have a headache.


I'm not even sure why I watched this, and it made a compelling case for just surviving off whatever paltry scraps Gonzo throws my way with Akiba. Whatever it may have done right is drowned out by the throbbing migraine it gave me. The only thing really holding this episode together was the bouncing cleavage; sometimes because someone moved about a quarter of an inch, sometimes because there was a cat batting them with the strength of a heavyweight boxer. That, and the incessant screaming. This show's always been heavy on it, but this episode seemed especially awful for it, especially with the breathy newbie whose 'gag' is that she's a gullible, screaming idiot. And secretly pathetic too, I guess? The salient part is that she screams. A lot. So basically the same as the rest of the main cast. And she's supposedly Megumin's rival, but they put about as much effort into selling that as they did coming up with "Aqua gets eaten by a toad… again."

Next Episode:

    So another girl to add to the harem but nothing even remotely changes overall… Yep.

  • LUNI_TUNZ says:

    I’m sure new girl, who we’ve never heard about until this moment will help develop the rich backstory of Megumin, whose name I almost forgot.

    Also,an entire episode without Darkness,who I remember being the character who really had a problem with having only one joke. I wouldn’t mind if she stays gone, honestly.

    • jgoi says:

      They won’t fully commit to the joke, she’s ok with being humiliated in mild ways but not in more extreme ways.

  • The Phantom says:

    It seem the Kazuma x Megumin thing is far more complicated and real that I would have believed, they enter some kind of relationship later on which really shocked me, she is insanely popular in Japan as well.

    • Opulent Rag says:

      That continues to mystify me, like Hestia in Dungeon Girls. What the fuck makes them any different than any other “super-powered” loli girl? They literally look no different than the other several dozen iterations that came before.

  • Fluffums says:

    “The only thing really holding this episode together was the bouncing cleavage”

    Isn’t that normal for anime though?

  • anise_punter says:

    I disagree. Aqua should be eaten by a toad every week, even when it would make no sense for this to happen.

    • anise_punter says:

      and Megumin pulling bread crusts out of the trash and stuffing them in her face (image 75 up there) was something you’d see back in the day when anime tried to actually be funny.

  • ark noir says:

    It’s crap! it was crap last season and crap this season , but somehow I laugh every episode.
