On that note, UK has also been hit with some pretty nice snow since as long as I can remember, wheee snow angels!
Oh snap this was awfully done…It has been a while since I last saw something as anti-climatic as this and to tell you the truth, it was plain awful >_<‘
Thoughts: I don’t even know what to say now since what happened in this episode was so straightfoward and frankly it all happened all too fast and lacked so much to even be called enjoyable to watch, even as a guilty pleasure type of thing.
So as the gang heads off to the “final battle” we get a lot of talk between Luke and various other members of his group for the sole purpose of making sure that everyone’s resolve remains as strong as ever. While it was a bit boring at this point it was still bearable. Asch shows up in front of Luke and tells him to be the one to kill Van otherwise he will have to sacrifice himself to kill him…was that supposed to be Asch’s way of asking for help or did he just hit his head? Worse still was Luke’s reply to it. Well at least you could expect the fight to be epic considering how extreme of lengths Asch was willing to go to see that Van is stopped…or not…
No sooner than when Luke and Tear fell off from a few hundred metres up are they comfronted with the mad scientist err I mean Van playing the organs and what should have been an epic clash where our heros finally fight against the “final boss” of this series became nothing more than some anti-climatic “smoking pile of crap”; to put it in better terms. I don’t think I could have even called that short scene (which was mostly boring speech) a fight as it turns out that Van decides to jump to his death rather than facing defeat. I mean, what defeat? He didn’t even put up a fight; full stop >.>
And then as if to laugh at the viewers we have Lorelei giving Luke and Asch the so called “key” to save him with, causing Luke to black out and then a timeskip into the future where he seemingly has forgotten about the whole plea from Lorelei and ends up being a bed bound slug. If I didn’t know any better the lazy bugger probably laid on his bed for an entire month before deciding to go visit his friends…
And as a last laugh we have Tear and Luke suddenly deciding that something has to be investigated on a last second notice and both of them rush off to Daath like a couple of superheroes ready to fight evil. Little needs to be said how unimpressed I was with this episode hence the lateness of this entry *rolleyes*
Sadly the slow parts of this series remains all too slow and wordy whereas the fight parts are always rushed as heck…why do they do this >.>
Screen caps and comments:
Why are you apologising again?
Like I said, why are you doing this?
Though something like that should have been obvious I would rather if they just got to the action instead of loitering around
Poor neglected Tear :___;
Guy knows better, it is a shame he isn’t the one to pair up with Tear
Some flashback on the goodness of Van, no effect
Asaaaa da yoooo~
Oh here comes some great logic
I mean is that a blackmailing threat from Asch?
Ironically this idiot is such a big idiot that the word idiot doesn’t even cover the half of his idiocy
Tear FALLLL~FALLSS Kyakyaa~ Uu!Uuu!
And would you take a look at that distance downwards
Magically enough all is fine and no broken bones is to be found
Good big brother Van
Is now batshit cuckoo
Skipping the boring talk lets just get to the fight alright?
If there was one to begin with
Ouch Van, that looks like a nasty cut, it will take hours to sew back together
You call that a defeat?
And what is with people and falling off high places in this series?
God tells him save him
And this is what happens one month onwards
Time for a trip to see how Tear is doing…hang on…WHAT ABOUT FONOS-MONOXIDE WHICH SHOULD HAVE KILLED HER??
Suddenly, he remembers
And off they go again -_____-
