Jesus christ what a disaster.
“what the fuck did you just say about me, you little bitch? let me just absue the shit out of my powers with seriously no provocation so you can see that they exist”
“Man that sure makes me, Joujiro, whos job is to exposition(and to make the same gag over and over), life easier”
“LOOK AT THIS DEEP RELATIONSHIP THE THREE OF US HAVE HAD AND IS VITAL FOR THIS SCENE TO BE A DRAMATIC, just trust me it happened seriously you gotta believe me HAVE FEELS PLS”
SHOW. DON’T TELL. You can not just tell the viewer these characters have such a relationship that goes back far and that this parting scene has weight, you must show, these guys are god damn NOTHING because you gave them absolutely no filling, with no character involved in your dramatic scene, it lacks any sort of impact and has no reason to be there, you’ve just wasted time to accomplish nothing but embarrass the writing quality of the show and maybe give some 13 year old feels.
That said, I’ve been complaining about pointless ‘showing’ just above this, so who even knows maybe that would have been a god damn mess too.
No, it’s never going to be good. the evidence just keeps suggesting that Maeda is incapable of writing for Anime, which says nothing of his ability to write for VN’s by all means, but this isn’t a god damn VN.
I will of course go to the end, but it’s had more than enough chances, it’s got a steep god damn climb if it wants to earn respect back.
…using all of their powers together was cool.
