If I have to see Saki’s pathetic, hang-dog, self-defeating, high-school crush angst, perma-depressed face again I’m going to claw my eyes out. Every scene she’s in is a complete bomb. She’s the biggest waste of digital ink since Taiga Aisaka. Oh and for standing up Ohsugi, may a thousand beef bowls descend upon a thousand of her dresses.
The way Eden of the East is mixing dissimilar elements together has captured my interest, but at the same time, I don’t know if it’s really working. I was underwhelmed by the first episode, and wasn’t wowed by the second episode. For some reason, the show’s atmosphere is really throwing me off. It’s lighter, romcom moments don’t mix well with it’s darker, plot driven moments. And it’s darker, plot-driven moments are countered by plot holes and unrealistic character behaviors.
Why I don’t want to take it seriously
Just some random thoughts that ran through my head as I got around to watching some of the season’s premieres. On tap? Eden of the East, another potential Production IG winner?
