Episode 4: Order! Execute Strategy!

XD I'm surprised they didn't censor the ribbon touching. She actually got pregnant. That was a good one, to play on the joke like that. I have a feeling that this is the type of show that wants to be serious but can't help but not take it seriously cause of moments like that.

Either way I am enjoying the show, I think the comedy does take away from the dark mood that they probably were initially trying to pull but I like the comedy so I think it would be better to treat this as a comedy and not take it so serious

Hoping to get more action though, I love Rin, I sense a bit of jealousy from her when he was with Iyo. Her "Hey did you forget that I'm trying to kill you" was basically in translation "Hey why are you looking at her when you have me"

Anyways i look forward to the next one

Accidental grab impregnation is so much funnier than accidental boob grope.

The anime could be good ! But has to have stupid moments But it has the worst sensibilty or timing !

It was bad enough that the revolt is in the Kyushu region the major earthquake. I coud forgive that as bad timing but to include Kanmon Tunnel in an Eathquake scene made me cringe again. And the city of Shimonoseki where the tunnel connects is kinda in poor judgement to that regiom showing wrecked buildings.





Then last year an anime was postphoned because of the Japanese National that was beheaded . Then here is Japan doing that ( yes itnis an anime ) I think that is very poor taste. IMO There had a chance to do it better.

Besides all that this episode was a a little better. Then the ridiculous premise of Iyo getting pregrant is so stupid.

BTW a lot of the Anime Blog / News sites are calling this a bad anime and I can understand that.

I wasnt a fan of Future Diary ( Mirai Nikki ) either. Both by Sakae Esuno

Asread Studio hast done a lot of anime but I did like Ga-Rei: Zero and Minami-ke: Okawari / Minami-ke: Okaeri
Minami-ke: Betsubara

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asread

I am really on the fence with this just like Future Diary at about 4 EPS.

Broadcast timing is up to the network, not the studio. The episode was undoubtedly well into production if not already finished by the time the earthquakes hit and the screenplay for the series written well before that. You're basically blaming the show for not being able to predict the future. Which is downright silly.

Criticize the timing if you want, but again that's up to the network not the studio. So you're blaming the wrong people.

WE are not alone / besides most blog / review sites have dropped the show / but ANN review really let loose.

Big Order ‒ Episode 3

"The show can't stick with a single tone or train of thought for more than a few minutes, and it's making the already fragile facade of its plot come apart


Maybe things can level out later, but right now Big Order is a mess. The comedy doesn't work well enough to justify calling the show a black comedy, and the show's misanthropic edge is so juvenile and slapdash that you can't call it a gritty action drama either. It's just a collection of scenes stitched together with no sense of purpose or vision. Sometimes it's violent and gritty, other times it's absurd and lighthearted. There are individual pieces here that might be salvageable, but when combined, it all adds up to less than the sum of its parts.

And I haven't even gotten to the ending.

When Iyo proclaimed that her hair ribbon/bunny ears couldn't ever be touched by a man, lest she be impregnated and become impure, I thought the show was giving her some kind of strange personality quirk. When Eiji actually grabbed her ears, and Iyo's belly immediately swelled up in size, I had to pause for a moment, figuring it must be some kind of absurd sight gag. When Iyo then declared she was going into labor before cutting to black and rolling the credits, I had to pause for another moment. It slowly dawned on me that the show might actually be serious. Eiji might have impregnated a woman by touching her hair-ribbons, and that woman might have actually gone through a full term of pregnancy in about five minutes. Now I haven't read the manga, so maybe this is all some kind of weird fake out, but if Iyo really is giving birth, then that would propel Big Order into a level of badness that might make the whole show recommendable as an irony-watch alone.

As it stands, Big Order is just the boring kind of bad. Aside from its incredibly bizarre ending, this episode was more of last week's problems, but worse. Eiji remains an unengaging cipher, Rin has been reduced to a literal running gag, and the plot can't yet hold all of the show's disparate parts together. It wants to do comedy and gritty darkness at the same time, but it has neither the comedic nor the dramatic chops to pull it off. The few action beats we've gotten over three episodes have all been bland and unmemorable, so it can't even write itself off as popcorn-action fare. At this point, I kind of hope this show goes off the deep end; I would actually be pretty excited to see an anime equivalent to The Room. Being hilariously bad would at least be more entertaining than what Big Order has to offer right now.

It's a shitstorm alright, but I can't tell if it's funny only for how absurd it is.

I do like Rin with her immortality and how she gets killed all the time and just walks it off like a person getting a papercut.

I go back to my original point. They're knocking it out of the ballpark in terms of WTF factor.
