Dawn of the (Walking) Dead (Fish).
You know, there’s a lot I can say about this show.
After watching Episode 5 of BRS, we see the toll that the recent spate of events has taken on Yomi’s well-being. We watch her gradual descent into madness, with bracelets strung with her own hair and her obsession with cutting everything in her room up. We find out the ending to the story of the bird with the rainbow-coloured wings; how it eventually becomes black, dull and dies. We even see Saya trying to kill Mato in the most literal sense. Surely, this show must have entered the realm of psychological anime right?
No doubts about that. But is it a good anime?
With every season, comes at least one anime which seems as though it’s trying to become thought-provoking, with some doing so rather successfully: Puella Magi Madoka Magica, for instance, turning the Mahou Shoujo trope on its end. The blogosphere is now abuzz with discussions on Ordet’s latest 8-episode offering, Black Rock Shooter. Will BRS live up to its initial hype, or will it just burn out?
(challenge : read this post in the voice of Satomi Arai, a la Naoko’s or Kuroko’s voice acting..)
If it’s anything that was moderately interesting about the less-than-interesting 6 minute OVA, Yuri Seijin Naoko-san, it’s the existence of Naoko-san’s home planet, Yuri Star. A planet where, as the name implies, everyone is lesbian – and female. While this might seem lame and uninteresting to most, to me , this poses an interesting possibility : what does this say about the existence of vastly different universes , beyond our comprehension and ability to locate?
