I watched the first episode of it the other day. Total garbage. Stupid plot, loud and obnoxious characters with very shallow depth, lame animation, just bad. This is one of the animes where they think titties is the cure-all for pure suck. They even put huge ones on the Oba-chan. Very bad and will not finish this one.

You would see, when it starts off at 0 on the interesting plot meter, it really skyrockets later for a show you expect to make zero sense and have no character development. Kinda reminds me of Recently My sister is Unusual, because half of everyone dropped it after the yuri scene and everyone else expected it to have weak plot.

You made the same mistake I did at first. You started watching it with the thought that it's going to be a "super serious" anime. Which it is not. It's a comedy. I had a similar reaction to the show when I watched the first episode, and only just started watching it again.

I think all the lack of actual animation is supposed to make it funnier, which it kinda does. Kiriko not really running when she is running IS kinda funny. Having to be cursed with hives if a girl touches you to pilot a mecha, and then needing a girl to sit in your lap WHILE piloting said mecha? Absurd... but funny because of that.

Also badass grannies are a thing this season apparently.

Hmmmm....experience has taught me that if people say I bailed too early, they're usually right. (Except in the case of Hitman Reborn). So, I guess I'll give it a second shot and see.

That's pretty generous. Compared to other anime, Recently My Sister really did have a weak narrative, it was basically a whole season worth of filler. In my opinion Dai Shogun is only worthwhile as long as it keeps up its ridiculousness and humour. If it starts trying to be a jack of all trades by going for seriousness and bucketloads of plot-related dialogue half way through the show it'll become veritable garbage.

I'll watch episode 6 tonight.

Kiriko is worst girl, literally makes me nauseous every time I see her. Chiharu a best.

A reverse trap is nice, too.

It was plot blood. But I was hoping 1 of the shinsengumi turned out to be the granny in the end lol. It seemed like a hell of a flashback.

I hate these shows that manage to sneak themselves into a niche just above the "I'm dropping this shit" line. The narrative has got ADHD, the 'action' is just a crude audio blend of screams and spurts of blood superimposed on still images, the saucy scenes aren't even absurdly funny any more...yet somehow the ending of this episode managed to be good enough of a tease that I didn't strike it off the list. Damn it...

Ep 7

It seems to be sticking with a pretty serious tone to go along with the slapstick fan service sprinkled around. Learned a lot about Kiriko this time. And we got to see Asai's form of Susanoo.

I called it right a long time ago on this forum. Each girl will have their own unique form while in the robot.

From this point onwards I'm just here for the sake of completion and reviewing. This anime is balls.

That you did, and it becomes evident when you look into the OP that way. Gz.

There is nothing uptight about it.

The next time you are right, just quote yourself. It just feels so right, it is better than the cookie.

lol.
