The Katanagatari catastrophy

January 24th, 2015 by Author

I made a mistake of trying to show Katanagatari to someone who’s not that much into anime in general, and it didn’t go down too well. The problem is that you have to be a big weaboo to love Togame’s speechifying. While the dialog ebbs and flows marvelously, the lack of action can be unbearable for someone who is trying to keep up with subs instead of relishing relishing Togame’s intricate, yet natural phrasing… for 10 minutes. Things fall apart even before the freak clown ninja takes over.
