Wow, this was terrible.
The opening line of the show doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things, but it doesn’t help that I knew it’s a blatant lie off the top of my head:
One of those three things was invented during the Renaissance. I think this shows exactly how much effort was put into this show.
On to the show itself. Not only is our protagonist a worthless slimeball who makes Ouma Shuu look good: he’s also fat, short and unbelievably ugly.
And the creators don’t stop there. In the virtual world, the place where he’s supposed to be free of painful reality, his avatar is… wait for it… a PIG.
Definitely not a loser.
Then some girl gives him magic powers, and he has to fight in magical battles. Basically, this is [C], except with technobabble instead of econobattle, with far worse animation, without any characters I could potentially give a shit about, and with, unbelievably, even less concern for logic and consistency. Even worse, the fight was awful. He won by lifting up the back tire on the motorcycle? Come on, how is that even a weakness…
Like [C], the dystopian setting seems to have potential, but they completely ignore it in favor of gibberish and pointless fights. I’ll probably still watch a few more episodes of this since I’m kind of curious if it can get any worse.
