Wander Org Primary #11 — Have You Tried Unplugging It?

March 23rd, 2021

 

Oh boy, you know how much I love episodes that are entirely flashbacks!

I know the low-res is unusual lately, but I'm tired of waiting for the higher ones to pop because the broadcast was delayed. Whatever. Also, planning for next season preview to be up a week from Wednesday. It's half done, and certainly seems like… another season, but I have work stuff that I can't start on until Thursday which I expect will keep me busy until at least Saturday.

Impressions:

So, basically everything here is that they accidentally created a jealous and murderous robot daughter, who after finding out she was murderous, threw in a hole and declared "job well done," except oops, she can log into the collective unconsciousness Matrix through the soul stealing machine they built, and use that to murder more people. And the only way to defeat it is to recruit troubled teenage girls to act as their child soldiers in the Matrix because that's where she lives now as a cyber ghost or something. But I guess we already had the machine that steals souls sitting next to their magical albino corpse, so… right. Uhhhh, huh. Remember when it was just some form of magical hell, and we weren't supposed to just assume that the local business was secretly building robots as an offshoot to their brain stealing machines after a couple decades delving into creating superhumans to run their company? Also, is it weird that my first thought is "Well, it's a more realistic view of computers than In-Spectre or Gachaman Crowds put forth." Having a robo Freddy Krueger will do that.

Who even cares about this swerve into abject nonsense? At what point was any of this story about Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum? Why are we seemingly making it all about them and this goofy random killer monster-slash-robot-slash-supernatural AI-slash-techno demon? Are we just done with everybody else's (lack of) character arcs? Was that supposed to have been Ai's complete arc? Did Momo and Rikka grow or learn anything in any way, or are we just throwing them aside having turned their magical pets into sushi? And can I say again how fantastic it was to have multiple scenes explaining those stupid things now that we're just stuffing them in the fridge?

    Oh joy,it’s time to solve suicide once and for all!

    Weird that they have a seemingly happy girl commit suicide when clearly every other girl was visibly troubled. Like, they forgot their own premise.
