Lycoris Recoil #04 — Underwear Police

July 23rd, 2022


How dare you wear underwear that I think is wrong.


We're continuing to go downhill fast. So much for the setup and character intros meaning we could finally get the story moving somewhere. After an episode of spinning its wheels, here's one where it does even less. They go clothes shopping because Chisato is unhappy about Takina not wearing the right underwear. Yeah, a whole episode on and about being bitchy about someone else's personal underwear choice. Why are we even caring about this garbage? Why are we doing an entire goddamned episode about it? It's not even like she was wearing a ragged, moth eaten speedo.

Nobody in trouble. No gunplay. There is a literally random terrorist attack, which is foiled by putting the entire counter-team in the hail of bullets, but luckily, they're immune to bullets, breaking glass, etc. Probably not the explosions. Which also somehow manages to be a pretty horrifying part of the episode. Not from the attack, but because the duo stumbled past it, apparently oblivious to explosions and sirens, and Chisato's response is "Meh, not our problem." The entire thing just continues to beg the question how this public government organization of slave children soldiers being thrown straight into massacres exists.

    Maybe it was the Terminator theme when she did her little flip, but while Takina always felt like she takes her job a little too seriously, this episode made her feel like a combat AI not even trying to blend in with humanity.
