12 Days of Christmas 2013 #06 – The OreImo 2 Specials

OreImoPfft

My reactions.

The first season of Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai, or OreImo for short, was alright. The second season was also fine, but felt a bit unfocused at times.

Then came the “true ending” in form of special episodes and completely turned everything we knew into a pathetic and hideous mess. In three episodes, the OreImo 2 specials manage shit all over the whole series.

That is quite a feat. Continue reading

Why Eureka Seven AO is Bad #01 – When Shallow Characters Dominate

EurekaSevenAoPromoCharacters

Note: It is suggested that you watch Eureka Seven AO before reading this post, but it is not necessary. It is divided into three parts so that anyone can read it: 1. Relatively spoiler-free thoughts on the characters.  2. Spoilers on Eureka Seven AO. 3. Spoilers on Eureka Seven AO and Eureka Seven. Each section is clearly marked.

It has now been a while since Eureka Seven AO finished and I feel like it is time to share some of my thoughts on the series. I will avoid going too deep into the details since I do not remember them all, which is not that odd considering how the series introduces lots of ideas but never really does anything with them and the fact that I never really like it to begin with.

In other words, if you see some mistake, please call me out on it! When I someday re-watch it in the near future, I will go through every episode and point out the flaws. You can view this post, along with the other coming two, as scattered thoughts on what I believe the Eureka Seven AO did wrong.

To start, let us talk about how poor the characters are. Continue reading
