Badly Written MMO #07 — Double Triple God Mode

February 19th, 2020


And all the status screens you could ask for.


I'm not sure I can put my finger on why this episode irritates me as much as it did. Probably a combination of just being utterly fed up with the show, having trimmed out all the other worse written things from my week, and it being a Wednesday. I think though is that it's because it started out obnoxious, dropped what it was doing entirely to do a montage, and followed that up with two flavors of "Look, I got even more over over overpowered again." In one case, it happened off-screen and she just pops in to go "That thing you've been doing? I accidentally did it better, easier, and infinitely." The joke there is that she looks sort of silly while doing it. Also not that this isn't an antagonist taunting someone. It's just "LOL, she's at it again. Completely making fools of us and trivializing everything, but isn't it great?"

Then it gets worse though. She trips over some random quest and the last third of the episode is spent doing banal chores, whereupon it bequeaths her with ultimate invulnerability for her and all her friends. It doesn't even have the joke in there that she looks silly doing it. Now she looks like the god that she is. Everybody stands in a circle and goes "She did it again. We're completely useless and she's trivialized everything." And that's where the episode ends. Not on a joke. On that depressing statement and reward bequeathed upon her just because. There is no joke there. It's just mawkishly aping the thing it claims to be parodying. Maybe next week I'll fire up a random number generator and watch a completely random episode of a completely random anime. Then have to watch something else because odds are excellent it would be porn.

    I see a lot of “awww, maple’s so cute, this is so wholesome”.

    I go: “this is so goddamn boring. How is watching a even more overpowered female kirito exciting? At least show her fricking panties or something.”

    Status screens and levels will be the death of anime.
