The Lovely Tyrant of Love #03 — Writing By Chaos

April 20th, 2017

It's not a race to the bottom, Thursday.


What the hell was even going on with this episode? The first ten minutes was a tremendously half-assed brother/sister bit, formed on jack squat and resolved by jack squat. The sole joke was something about a rabid penguin that wanted to rape her. But it's a penguin. And penguins are cute. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Oh wait, I guess they also pointed out how the censoring censors things. By yelling about it. Then, for the second half, they chose to bum around for five minutes, doing some kind of weird universally misogynistic bit from every possible angle before burning up the notebook and getting it replaced with a phone, all in about a four minute span. That still left about a minute in the episode though, so there was like a fourth plot thread that was introduced and wrapped up in that span to end the episode on.

Usually when you have an A/B/C plot, they're interwoven through the whole thing, leading up to something that brings them together or has some similar thread running through the conclusion to them. Here, we have about four different, all-but-unrelated things, mostly resolved sequentially, except for the things that weren't, and hell, the sister thing was originally introduced at the start of last episode before it was put off to this one. The hell even happened here? And where did all the attempts at jokes go?

    I think this is supposed to be a multi-segment show (which would explain the weird “blank x blank” episode titles) but it’s not made entirely clear.

    I guess burning the note book was to get the “LOL REMEMBER DEATH NOTE” joke over with, but the whole immediately replacing it with a cell phone, and Guri not showing an ounce of concern for losing her tools fails to elicit any emotions out of me.

    Also, if their are cupids in this world, why is Guri charged with the responsibility of making couples fall in love?

    I laughed at Guri a couple times, the other characters not once. This has the potential (there’s that word again!) to fall pretty far pretty fast.
