Review-Roundup: CROSS ANGE 19, Rolling Girls 06

[C12] The Rolling Girls - 06.mp4 - 00000Foreshadowing! Also, way to go, Rolling Girls, using foreshadowing as a way to let a character say “I will do this at some point.” and then let said character do said thing. ‘Jumping the shark’ didn’t become a thing because the audience is too dumb to get what foreshadowing is.

This time I review:

Cross Ange 19: Ange gets captured by Salia and her two traitorous companions. Turns out this doesn’t result in a prisonbreak-sequence. Instead, Ange’s (sort-of) confronting Salia & Co and ends up meeting Embryo to… do stuff. She fails to kill him (of course… after all, the finale hasn’t started yet). And so we simply get a showcase of how Embryo enslaves girls.

Rolling Girls 06: Two sides hate each other. Their leaders want peace. They make peace. The End.

Review-Roundup: Death Parade 05, Rolling Girls 05

[C12] The Rolling Girls - 05.mp4 - 00004Only in Japanese series would a food-fight be something far more complicated than gradeschoolers throwing spaghetti at each other during lunchbreak.

This time I review:

Death Parade 05: The Black-Haired Woman has amnesia (yeah, big suprise, isn’t it?). Turns out she has a background-story, a peculiar one going by the worldbuilding this series has done so far and… since she has amnesia that’s a concern for later episodes. Right now, we are supposed to feel satisfied with getting vague hints and stuff like that.

Rolling Girls 05: Some people want to beat each other up, a few think it’s a bad idea. The main-characters share that opinion and try their best to defuse the situation! Also, some grandpa and his granddaughter are unable to be very honest about their feelings. Cue up cheesy drama-sequences until the series decides these characters can actually be honest about their feelings!

Review-Roundup: Death Parade 04, Rolling Girls 03/04

[C12] Death Parade - 04.mp4 - 00003A satisfying and ambiguous conclusion to a dark little episodic story.

This time I review:

Death Parade 04: Once again two people play for their fate in the afterlife. And the series continues to not really copy the expectations set up by the first episode in that regard.

Rolling Girls 03/04: Nozomi & gang travel to another Otaku-Eden whose hero is forced to ask herself how much she is prepared to sacrifice in order to satisfy her selfish desires.

Review-Roundup: The Rolling Girls 01/02, CROSS ANGE 15

[HorribleSubs] Cross Ange - 15 [480p].mkv - 00000Considering how stupid most romance-sub-plots in shounen-series are, there should be way more way blatant remarks about getting to third base and even further just for the hell of it.

This time I review:

The Rolling Girls 01/02: Turns out that Japan without any authority-figures just becomes a battle-royale of superpowered weirdos and those who are happy to help the weirdos fight those battles.

Cross Ange 15: Tusk, Ange and Vivian finally meet the mysterious Dragon-people who… talk a lot, it turns out. Yep, another episode of Ange and Tusk acting needlessly bewildered and confused while people explain the series’ setting to them.
