Peach Boy Riverside #01 — Blood Splatter

July 1st, 2021


Yes, very gory. Very puff of blood.


You know me, I can enjoy, or at least tolerate, some truly low end fantasy adventure things like Grimms Notes or Ulysses, so I'm always tempted to compare the things that don't grasp me to them to at least rationalize to myself why it didn't work. Often, production plays a big part, and this one certainly fails on that front. The animation ain't there, which is a bit of a problem if you're leaning on your premise being all about fighting giant monsters. It's rather far on the low end simply in general, including some egregious abuse of stills, set to some pretty goofy RPG battle music. Except, of course, when it comes to the main character's gigantic chest, which flops like a goddamned pair of Dragon Quest slimes with every little movement.

Putting together a cohesive story introducing the characters and story is also a big part, and again, while not the worst, it's just unimaginative and dull about it. We don't have to suffer through a bunch of internal narration of the characters introducing themselves or explaining the things going on right in front of them. Instead, we suffer through repeated declarations of the amount of racism specism in the world. And then the giant walrus shows up, who spends the last five minutes of the episode announcing what the attacks of his opponents were, which is super helpful because they weren't animated, plus an unrelated exposition bit from space about random lore about I guess the origins of her magic powers? In any case, it ends the whole thing with such an incredibly damp fart of a climax to an episode that was already meandering and not very compelling.
