KyoAni serving us voluptuous girls is one thing but that doesn’t necessarily make Amaburi an outstanding series. It is entertaining, true, but there are some elements of its plot that feels lackluster, especially with the recent developments. It’s already six episodes and there’s still a lack of substantial progress for the things that they need to do to make the park a hit. But hey, it’s KyoAni. When those moe eyes come gazing down on you, who gives a shit about plot?
While Denki-gai does a good job with its comedy, I’m actually surprised how intelligent the series is in being able to slip in some mature character development. It emphasizes the uniqueness of our characters (beyond their retarded stunts) and how their uniqueness rubs on to each other.
The drug that was introduced to normalize the hues at the start of Psycho-Pass 2 feels like a shout-out to the movie, “Equilibrium”. Nostalgia aside, I find it intriguing how Kamui is being able to fuck up Sibyl’s system by managing to make other people “clear”. They go on a rampage and their crime coefficient would still be “normal”. And I’m interested in finding out how he does it. What flaw did Kamui “find” within Sibyl that he was able to slip past such a system?
The raid event in the depths of Calm, the murders in Akiba, the influence of the flavor texts; Whoever is in-charge of the second season of Log Horizon felt like they fucked this one up.
They were trying to narrate these events “at the same time” that the focus and intensity that the viewers could’ve invested in one story loses its efficiency when the series skips to explore another.
I think exploring these events are possible but it needed to be handled properly so as to not lose the meaning in whatever the characters are doing. And to be honest, I’m more interested in the raid in Calm rather than the murders in Akiba.
