Kurokami: Black God, episode 13 – Screw you guys, I’m going home

I’d read good things about KK #13. Read that it was the best episode since the first episode. Even read some comments that it felt like a whole new show. So I watched it, somewhat skeptical, but with a renewed hope in mind. Conclusion? No, it still sucks. Nothing’s changed. The show still looks cheaply animated, we didn’t lose the dumb synchro scenes, the Konbini-voyeur quickly went from ambiguously evil to clearly evil, and the story still sucks.

Kurokami: Black God, episode 11 – Development, whoa

This was the first solid episode of Kurokami in a very long time. Coincidentally, there was no action here, and the writers simply used the time to flesh out the relationship between Keita and the konbini voyeur. You’d think it’d be a recipe for boredom, but the story was surprisingly engaging, not overly outlandish, and we at least got an episode off from having to watch the stupid transformation sequences, and Kuro’s terrible fighting “skills.”

Kurokami: Black God, episode 10 – Goodbye evil characters

I’ve been admittedly lax in my posting about Kurokami. I figure there’s only so much interest in me writing about how crappy the show is week to week. Fortunately, episode 11 was actually a pretty good episode, so my post might be better than my recent Kurokami posts have been. Unfortunately, this post is about episode 10, which was not a good episode.

Kurokami: Black God, episodes 7 and 8 – A glimmer of hope

After a handful of episodes, a show has pretty much established what it is. If you jump to watch it the moment it’s released, it’s probably a 9-10. If you don’t mind waiting a day or two, it’s probably an 8. If you don’t mind waiting a few days to a week, it’s probably a 7. If you don’t mind waiting for more than a week (or two or three), it’s a 6. And if it’s 5 or below, you’re pretty much ambivalent about when you watch it (if ever).
