After all, love is game for try-hards. It’s why stalking is such a GREAT way to earn love.
Yurikuma Arashi is the only series where after watching it once you can say you’ve seen the series three times already.
He does…? He has sex with the woman he loves and one of his biggest concerns seems to be to count the number of moles on her inner thigh? And why is this turning into a contest between Embryo and Tusk in the first place? Also, I believe, the audience has seen Ange naked WAY before either of them did – multiple times! And technically Ange’s “first time” has been the unpleasant experience of getting raped by Jill… but nobody in the show talks about that anymore, of course.
Aldnoah.Zero 23: Inaho’s robo-self is killing him because brains and stuff. And Slaine is doubling down on his attempt to ruin Earth because that’s what big boys would do in his situation, he believes. And after listening to the emperor’s final confession, Asseylum is ready to take charge! And so she’s about to marry some dude… again
Cross Ange 24: Tusk talks about sex. Alektra takes revenge on her ex. Chris accepts that she’s simply too whiny to be considered a good person. Sala takes an eternity to finish singing. And the world has ended – as expected. One episode left: You gotta wonder whether they’ll really manage to find a sensible ending for this show with only one episode left.
That’s nice and all… but I don’t think that has helped Ginko in ANY way to win Kureha’s heart again. She might as well have talked about worldpeace.
You need a lot of patience for this show. Sometimes it even feels like this series believes its audience to be full of idiots. The way this series can’t stop itself from talking about its one-dimensional characters and straightforward story, you would think each episode is trying to introduce new viewers to the show. Really, whatever happens currently in the series and the reasons that lead to that are all laid out for you each time in every episode. There’s more talk about what I already know than what I don’t know in this series. At the start, the series was still a little mysterious but now the plot is people explaining everything, even the stuff that needed no explanation. And the explanations are frigging boring as well!
Ange’s being as understanding as always…
Aldnoah.Zero 22: Inaho has become robocop. Slaine and Klancain start their own little Game Of Thrones show. And the princesses get very sentimental. Also, there’s a war going on but who cares about that, right?
Cross Ange 23: Great, Ange is back in form! Just in time for the finale, Ange’s ready to be the biggest asshole in any room she’s standing in! Except when it comes to love… Apparently love is the only topic Ange can take serious without becoming a cynical asshole.
You would think that Junpei’s reaction is supposed to be humorous due to how exaggerated it us but that’s indeed what the movie seems to hope everyone’s reaction will be. After all, there’s nothing else Ken has to offer as a character besides being a kid and wanting to avenge his dead mother.
Persona 3 Movie 2: Summertime Is Bummertime
I fear there’ll be always a likely chance that a certain Persona-adaptation will end up being directed by Tomohisa Taguchi and because of that it will suck. That guy has directed two Persona-related things and both of them have sucked. This has become for me one of those directors that’s a warning signal more than anything else.
Guess, Kureha likes to shoot first and ask later…
Good thing this series has Kureha to drive the plot forward. After all, I can’t imagine an ordinary person to change her opinion on things that radically that fast – multiple times! Maybe next week she will hate her classmates again who she had become friends with in this episode because why not, right?
It’s one thing to notice how that line and the image shown don’t fit together but the whole thing becomes downright grotesque when you imagine someone somewhere has consciously decided that this image should be shown when Embryo says this line.
Aldnoah.Zero 21: The princesses have a heart-to-hear-talk… off-screen. Also, Slaine imprisons them as the two confront him together. Meanwhile, Inaho saves the day for the Earth-forces… again.
Cross Ange 22: Salia gets spanked for misbehaving. That’s how we know that all Embryo wants is strong and intelligent women. ‘Cause those would just love to be treated like that, right?! Also, Ange fucks Tusk because if you put your head often enough between a woman’s legs, she will of course fall in love with you at some point.
HAHAHAHAHAHA… oh wait, she’s serious… Sure, she’s a girl after all. OF COURSE her most vulnerable moment had been her girlfriends sort-of not liking her hairstyle during a little party… while she got trained to become a soldier surrounded by other soldiers who saw combat and could die every day, mind you.
This time I review:
Cross Ange 21: Ange escapes with the help of Sala but it turns out she also needs the help of Momoka and Tusk (read: they needed to sacrifice themselves). Meanwhile, Chris fulfils the asshole-ratio of a typical Cross-Ange-episode just fine.
Aldnoah.Zero 20: Slaine continues to stop the shit from hitting the fan – and seems to lose control of the situation. On the other hand, Inaho does… stuff.
To quote a running-gag of the Archer-TV-series: Phrasing!
Does anyone even care that a frigging comet has caused all bears to become the enemy of mankind? I mean, not that it was different before that comet hit earth but you know you’re in trouble when animals start to talk to each other and shit. You could say, this series is the Yuri-Version of Planet of the Apes except you know the bears actually look like humans because Romeo & Juliet is great but bestiality isn’t, I guess.
Let’s set aside how this is another obvious joke aimed at Tusk and the tiresome running-gag associated with his character… Who actually told Hilda about this? Who the hell would say about a person “Oh, yeah, that dude is like mole – except he’s digging and flipping through a vagina instead of earth. Get it, digging and mole…?! That dude doesn’t even know what daylight looks like, that’s how often he’s down there between her legs!”
Cross Ange had been trash from the very beginning but it wasn’t very consistent in terms of trashiness. The series has a lot of crazy moments but it doesn’t have a lot of moments that seem absolutely crazy. Mostly it’s the fault of the series actually because you simply get used to whatever crazy shit the series usually does and since it does crazy shit all the time you end up feeling disappointed when the series misses a chance to up the ante. And this series has missed plenty of such chances. At times it even felt like the series took itself serious (but sadly not in an overblown, stupid way)! This series has a lot of crazy stuff but certainly not enough to be entertaining.
