I’m covering for Crusader again, and I was supposed to do this much earlier in the week, but it ran into my preparations for the Bar Exam. My apologies. Well anyways, this show is getting a triple set of movies, which is hilarious for a 13 episode show. 13 episodes is somewhere between 4 and 4 and a half hours, so basically it’s just the TV series packaged into movies. How silly.
Cry me a river sugoi girl, she saved your life (multiple times). Ungrateful wench! At least her little emo fit didn’t last for multiple episodes. She is one of the primary reasons I’m having trouble fully enjoying this show. She apparently exists to show that Canaan isn’t a monster, but that she has humanity left in her, and that she’s just a normal girl inside. However, instead of subtle suggestions and stories across several episodes, we get repeatedly bludgeoned with this fact by way of this maddening girl.
Blushing?! Tsundere?! Damn Nasu!
THE BEST CHARACTER IN THE SHOW. Man, we need a separate series just for this badass man where he solves the problems of passengers he picks up through badassery and pop idol driving. The only movie I’ve seen totally focused on a taxi driver was a pretty awesome movie. A tale of murder, 12 year old prostitutes, politics, and the famous line “You talkin’ to me? Then who the hell else are you talkin’ to? You talkin’ to me? Well I’m the only one here. Who the fuck do you think you’re talking to?”
Hoho. There are way too many characters in this show for me to keep up with them all at this point, but am I wrong in possibly connecting this to Canaan’s village? The cosplay fetishist fellow certainly looks old enough. But unfortunately I’m finding it more and more difficult to care about the backstories for fear that they will be unpleasantly predictable and cliche.
Yes, yes she is. I do like tough girls who can tell it like it is. She is a bit of a softie though, befriending such an irritating and excessively retarded girl.
My facial expression exactly.
Uh, it’s kinda getting hot in here.
Sigh, what is she, a cheap Bond villain? Austin Powers the anime? When I heard Canaan and Alphard were going to fight it out I was looking forward to a knock-down, drag out fight between two sexy ladies. But in the end it was rather anticlamactic, and frankly, lame. We ended up getting a one-sided fight with too much talking in it and a cheesy ending. Boo.
I really want to uninhibitedly love this show, but I can’t seem to do it. I should be excited over all of the yuri subtext that Crusader and I usually eat up, but the rest of the show makes it rather difficult. What started out as an intriguing idea has come across as less than unique, feeling like somewhere I’ve seen this all before. Nasu’s worldview is interesting, but he struggles at times to make each one distinguished. I don’t really want to be pandered to in this type of show.
