Hakui on MahoIku

Saturday, January 14th, 2017

Let me preface this with a massive spoiler warning. But! Cannot even trim anything from this GNUsocial post:

finished mahoiku, it was a huge mess

as i noticed a while back the moment someone’s backstory starts to show they’re flagged for the next candidate

instead of creating more impact when it comes, it just signals “oh hey don’t bother, they’re going to die next”

marisa was the only character i cared about because she actually had screentime and did things outside of fighting

i’m pretty sure i’ve seen better handled “everyone dies” series

I knew about the “murder-rama” nature of the series thnks to Evirus, but this is just perfect.

Chinese Subs

One weird thing about the Chinese subs is that they have a normal video spot for sponsor messages (it’s where Japanese usually put Bushiroad or Kadokawa logo), but there’s nothing there — clean video. I cannot help but ask if the Chinese pirates steal transport streams before they reach broadcast stations.

New Chew Toy

We used to have anime blogs at times that were excellent for mocking, such as the before-relaunch S1E1. Unfortunately, the availability of the quality crazy was rather spotty of late… But here’s a very promising claim at MimiDoShima:

Making guns and tanks look cool should not be done by a country like Japan.

That’s the feeling. Oh yes. It’s like real Scotch next to Josei Next Door’s moonshine.
