I was supposed to wait for Soul Eater Not! before making a post but after watching Black Bullshit’s last episode, I suddenly had the urge to vomit everything bad about spring in this post…
So my sincerest apologies for being unable to hold it it.
JESUS FUCKING CHRIST! Black Bullet was so bad that even Tina couldn’t save this show from the depths of hell that it swam into. It wasted the good visuals, the voice cast, the music, by producing a nauseating plot and a progression that splattered all over the place!
BUT THIS SERIES HAVE LOLIS! WHO WOULDN’T WANT LOLIS
Then you are putting your dick in the wrong series. Honestly jeez, just watch Ro-Kyu-Bu if you want a Hidaka x Kaji pair or that moeblob rabbit cafe anime that also aired last spring. There were better choices out there with probably some level of consistency in the narrative compared to this piece of garbage.
But seriously, what went wrong with this series?
It crammed a ton of content that reduced our characters to fictitious elements that made them soulless. It’s really hard to be empathetic with their plight if you are swept over by the erratic pacing. No matter how much anguish Yuki Kaji puts in his voice acting or how much joy Hidaka Rina intends the viewers to feel, it all becomes worthless before the rushed pacing of this series.
It’s like somebody is forcing you to drink an assortment of freshly brewed cup of coffee, iced tea, and and a vanilla milkshake every minute or so. It doesn’t matter if it’s hot and you burn yourself or drinking iced tea after coffee messes up your tastebuds, you just have to drink them all in random order, as the time permits. WTF?!
I’m losing faith with adaptations now and Gokukoku is another fucking disappointment (there’s that Flag series that I dropped earlier but let’s not go with that). Not only did they skip a lot of good content in the manga, the last two episodes felt total lolwut. And too bad since they have such a good cast on this one.
I have to agree and hop in the bandwagon with some people claiming that SHAFT is going to hell. I can’t help but think how right those people are. If SHAFT isn’t making a -gatari series or any series without Butcher in it, it turns out to be lackluster. And Mekakucity is one such piece of work. For the record, I don’t think this series was absolute shit. It just didn’t appeal to me as strongly as I hoped.
There were a lot of characters with supposedly a lot of issues yet they were handled poorly. For instance, that kid (above) who rescued his friend from being run over by a truck then both of them were kidnapped and then his friend went to the otherworld shit… Man, so many events that the idiotic me could hardly follow… WTF?!
Maybe this was different if it ran as a 2-cour series. Then again, this series was uninteresting. It was a total waste of time that I could’ve invested in watching Gundam Unicorn while in transit or some other movie and shit.
As for Soul Eater Not!, I don’t know if it would be able to save its ass considering the last few episodes signaled its decline and veered the train-wreck to its impending doom. I’m not hoping for any miracle whatsoever, I just want to watch the goddamn last episode and end my Spring list.
