SST no.3 (seasonal shower thoughts)

So… here I am… waiting for this anime to be good, waiting for this anime to fulfill its potential, waiting and hoping it will be great, cause it could be great, and it should be great, but as much as it saddens me… it is not great, and if it wasn’t animated beautifully it wouldn't even be good, if it was animated badly it probably wouldn’t even be bearable.

I’m treating this as a season since basically that’s what it is, a mini season and continuation from where the 1st season ended. I’m very confused as to why the studio decided to go this route though, they made 2 movies, recapping the first season and another adopting like half a season of new stuff. Wouldn’t it be better if they invest all of these resources into regular episodes? Especially since the pace of a good movie completely flew over their heads. I mean if you call it a movie, it better be one, not just episodes glued together. What the fuck was that pace? You just go into 10 mins of backstory and then immediately escalate to the crescendo of the movie? Sorry dude, that just doesn’t work and it did not work. Alas, wtf do I know right…

The show continues to provoke feelings with the cheapest way, so we get more torture porn. We get Reg’s torture at the start, then Prushka’s later. We get disturbing images like the patamon licking Prushka’s liquids, the same patamon that for whatever reason when it is gifted to the little girl it drops two turds in our face for whatever reason. We see the poor creatures that look like Mitty, what we don’t see, is something new or interesting about the world and it’s origins, something meaningful, something that would pour some more soul in the lifeless scenery. I guess we find out something about the whit whistles, that’s something I guess.

Nanachi continues to be the best character of the show, what saved the last season at the end and what’s holding together this one. We get two characters introduced in the movie, Bondrewd and Prushka. Bondrewd is overpowered as fuck and completely a piece of shit, a total cunt. The show for whatever reason tries to make him a plasuible character and convince us that we should care about him in the slightest, or even consider like genius viewers that we are that he had a purpose in doing all that so our little girl-scout can get her white whistle. Well… nope, he is just a piece of shit, and a stupid piece of shit at that, going through all that trouble with Prushka just to turn her into a cartridge, why? I mean the other cartridges worked just fine didn’t they? Anyway fuck Bondrewd, what about Prushka? Well we have to feel sorry for her cause torture porn, she is a victim, she is somewhat smart except she is completely stupid and gullible, and became a white whistle for our girl because she knew her for… a couple of hours, so they became BFFs and developed an unbreakable bond. Well, slap my ass and call me Suzy dude, I really wish everything was that so easy in storytelling, so convenient.

Animation continues to be splendid, even though we didn’t enjoy much scenery, just a couple of places and a couple of creatures that weren’t too fascinating, still everything was animated beautifully. Presentation is still the show’s saving grace.

Sound is excellent once again, same with effects. The new voices are great, Bondrewd’s voice fits perfectly and does a great job. As for Prushka’s, what I can I say anymore, you can probably give any character at this point to Inori Minase and she will make him likable. Not that Prushka is terrible or anything, but her VA is the main reason she is likable.

So, this movie changed nothing for me, I still believe this show had enormous potential, still believe it is wasting it, still in love with the premise and I’m still gonna keep believing and waiting for the show to become great cause I know it can be. Ah… will I ever learn…

2/10 story

I haven’t watched envy of the adaptations just yet, trying to figure out if I want to lol

this was very helpful, looking forward to the voice acting, pretty sure that’s the selling point for me
