Is Trigger trolling their fanbase with the first episode, or is it seriously what they're gonna go with for 26 episodes?

I've seen flash videos that poke fun of anime that looked better than this.


They've been known to do this, take a look at Inferno Cop. But yeah, the false advertisement and teasers seems questionable. They only showed teasers of the action sequences.

The thing is, I don't think they have enough people or money to create something like another Kill la Kill or Inoue since they have Little Witch Academy 2 in the works.

I get that the point of Ninja Slayer is to be bad, ala bad 90s anime—or at least what the Japanese thought Americans through was bad 90s anime...but that doesn't change the fact that it's still...not very good.

Like, I get the joke, but the joke itself just isn't funny enough to make me tolerate the rest of it. I guess I prefer things that are trying to be good being bad than just things trying to be bad.

Well.. That was something else. Not sure what to make of it to be honest. It's exagerrated and garish. yet at the same time rather crude except for the fight sequences.. or at least some of them.

The premise is daft and it's running with it with a straight face.

I'll have to watch more episodes.. To see if there is any meaning to the madness or if it is just plain bad.

I hoping this episode was just a nod to inferno cop and we're going to be in for a big surprise next week. Or maybe I'm being too optimistic, but shows have done this before where the first episode is whack.

Like The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya?

The difference here, is that there were no indications that this was just a one time thing for this show. Therefore, I'm not getting my hopes up.

First Impression

Not something you should watch sleep deprived. Better served if you watch it drunk or high. Preferably with friends. Get more enjoyment out of it that way.

Seems like this is going to be one of those "so bad it's good" deals. I'll admit I was thrown off at first, but there was a moment that got a laugh out of me. Will likely stick this one out to the end.

Well, this looks like a less ridiculous and better animated version of Inferno Cop, not exactly what I was expecting. Let's see if it can be as fun or clever as Inferno Cop was, the first episode wasn't really all that, so I'm sceptic. One of the biggest advantages Inferno Cop has over Ninja Slayer was its short runtime, this may be a little too long with its 12 minutes.
Anyway, I am gonna stick with it. Expectations are high, this better not disappoint.

Edit: Just reading the other posts Seriously, did none of you watch Inferno Cop? If not, go and do that right now, you'll be done in half an hour. I wasn't expecting this either, but it's not anything new.

F-F-F-Fuck. I'm actually interested in this series, but i never noticed that Trigger is doing it. I just hope it won't be made as a joke of a series at least.


Hmmm...

Anyway, peoples' hopes and dreams getting crushed...
