So, I watched this episode simultaneously with Shinmaru, as we were hoping to do a MST3K style post on it, but we ended up being stunned into silence by the bizarreness of the episode. So sadly, the final product was no good. So in its place, I’ll give you three reasons why you should bother watching this episode, even though it has nothing to do with the main story and is just plain weird.
This was an awesome episode. The backgrounds looked beautiful, the animation was solid. I actually even enjoyed the music quite a bit. Yep, an excellent episode indeed.
*Sigh* I guess I should write about this episode since that’s my job for the season. I hate that feeling when you realize you should’ve written about a different show. Ryukishi07 WTF happened!? I wanted Higurashi redux and you gave me Underworld (sans Kate Beckinsale!).
Damn it! This episode was excellent for about 5 minutes while the double-crossing and chase scenes were going on, and obnoxious for the rest of the time. Although Nemuru-chan displayed some surprisingly nice curves. Must be the dietary properties of those hassaku oranges.
This week’s subtitle is brought to by Hiro, who’s vocabulary has become so elementary, all he can do now is make one syllable grunts signaling confusion, fear or cowardliness.
Even when the episode is pretty Hiroshi-light, he still does at least two things that makes me want to smack him upside the head.
Hiro-baka may have no interest in doing this and that with icky girls, but he certainly has no problem being knocked out cold by them.
On one hand, I’d be willing to say that a lot of the mystery is beginning to unfold. On the other hand, this is a Ryukishi joint, so there’s no reason to believe that the mystery’s solvable at face value.
I think anyone who dropped Ookami Kakushi because it had a few seconds of yaoi in the last episode will come to regret it. Obviously, it was just a plot device and this show has designs well beyond that.
It’s late January so you know what season it is… yaoi season! (No that didn’t make any sense. I got nothing. That’s what happens when you get Leno’s writers writing for you.)
