Lots of people seemed to like the last episode because “stuff happened.” Fair enough.
But me, I didn’t particularly like the last episode. Sure, stuff happened, but it wasn’t interesting stuff.
The robot falling over was interesting, I guess, but that took all of ten seconds. What I didn’t find interesting was walking over the cliff with the robot legs. It was an elaborate, supposedly heartbreaking death for someone we barely knew. Plus the mechanics of the death were silly.
But this week’s episode— the robotics club getting disbanded, the robot getting destroyed— this is something I can get behind. I don’t care about the woman falling off the cliff because we barely knew her. But the robotics club and the robot, we know them well. Yes, I care more about the robot dying than about a person dying. Because the show led me to know and love the robot, but not the person.
Kai is a Dick
Poor Akiho… her robot is destroyed, the club is disbanded, her acquaintance is dead and her friend is in the hospital, and she’ll never achieve her dream. How does Kai react?
“Beat me in Kill-Ballad.” Dude. I want to punch you in the face. Who gives a crap about your stupid video game. Is Kai supposed to be clever or something? I don’t get it. It’s like the teenage version of “it’s a free country”.
I really hope Akiho comes to sort out her sister complex. Akiho thinks that building the giant robot is her sister’s dream. But it’s not. It’s her own dream. She needs to figure that out.
Whoa, even that horrible teacher doesn’t want to destroy the robot!
No wonder the robot fell over! It runs Windows! Probably had a software update and rebooted itself. And she programs in Visual Studio. I thought she would have been a fellow vim user. 🙁 All my respect is gone.
Yeah, brilliant plan. The Kimijima Reports would have been moved straight to my spam folder.
