It attempts to explain the main characters employing vague one-word descriptions, but vomits to its lap once it gets to the only female character at the time: “plus a l-a-d-y Nami isn’t shy.” I don’t understand how superhumanly disinterested you have to be to devote half of the 1 line which you are committing to the sole woman spelling out the term “woman,” but I am thinking nobody worked that night.
You’d Drown In Useless “Filler” Episodes
You understand how Game Of Thrones eventually caught up with then handed the books it is based on, to the point where the show is currently just finishing the narrative on its own while George R.R. Martin labors away, two novels supporting? Well, imagine if rather than going ahead, the show just started inventing bizarre, random storylines to tread water before Martin could catch up. This happens in anime each of the time — thus “filler” episodes. Most popular anime shows are based on manga series (a Japanese comic book, for those of you completely out of the loop), and if they start to run out of publish storylines, they need to streeeeetch their own stories to allow the source material build up a buffer. The filler they slap together is stunningly awful.
For example: To finish an great story arc roughly time-travelling super hybrids, Dragon Ball Z gave us an episode in which Goku had to receive his driver’s permit. Goku fails the evaluation, incidentally, and the episode ends with all the driving instructor wishing that he could fly. Ya know, like Goku can. Which means he doesn’t have to drive in the first location. Welcome to the world of anime filler, bitch. Meanwhile, at the center of a struggle against a villain who controls folks like puppets and leaves them kill one another, One part burst into three weeks of anthropomorphized manatees doing kung fu.
Toei AnimationI swear it was nowhere as cool as that combination of words promised to be.
