No, I was being totally serious.

What the hell happened to my brain.  It was in my head just a second ago.  At least I think it was.  Or I would think it was, if my brain was still in my head.

So this is what happens when TTGL meets PSG... and Quentin Tarantino.

Nah, although TTGL and PSG impressed right from the onset, I'm afraid this one doesn't strike enough impression as much. It's just too fast and haphazard. Everything was happening way too fast and it didn't really take necessary time to set everything into perspective first. TTGL and PSG did both of that despite the fast pace.

I can see where this is going: it will go with the Villain of the Week trope and then we have a showdown between Matoi and Satsuki. Yeah, pretty straightforward just like the show intends to be so it's all about the WTF-ness. Let's just see how WTF it's going to be.

Well damn. That was so ridiculously fast-paced that I found myself thinking "Wait, that was just half of the episode?" at the halfway mark. And I thought that pacing worked really well here. This is awesome.

That said, I'm jumping on the slower-paced bandwagon as well, since I think it would get "tiring" if it kept that pace up.

I got a little behind due to some prior engagements, so I finally worked my way back to this series.

I quite liked it.  But it was break-neck speed.  That'll be hard to keep up for the entire series. 

Oh, and I really liked the 1970s Toei monster-sized titles.   I wonder if it's going to play a little more like Enter The Dragon, where it's "climbing" the tower that becomes part of the narrative. 

Great voice work too.

Okay. I love this show's sense of humor. Mako was less annoying (and actually funny) and the whole family dinner had me in stitches. And this show is a perfect example of using your limited budget right, rivaled only by Yozakura.

And Kiryuin Satsuki is pretty damn awesome.

EDIT: Does need to lay off on the fanservice though.

I'm actually not sure what my reaction to this show is aside from amusement at the visuals.  It's strange that something so schizophrenic has managed to come into existence.  Gurren Lagann was a straightforward super robot anime with some great feats of animation, I'm not sure what Kill la Kill is.

I recommend Mobile Suit, RX-0 and Unicorn from the Unicorn OST.

When I think Schizophrenic this season I think more Kyokai no Kanata.  This definitely knows very much what it is.

This show is much less exciting than I expected. Apart from the specific details of the fight, I saw everything that happened in this episode coming a mile away.

The preview for the next episode show this is not "monster of the week" structure.

Fairly entertaining, but ultimately forgettable if not for the animation.

Okay, Mako's family is reminding me of something really specific, but I can't quite place it.  I feels like it's derived from Doraemon, to be honest.  But there's something hyper familiar that isn't just TTGL or P&S.

Granted, a whole lot of Imiashi's FLCL work is coming out here.  Right down to the suit transformation.   Now we just need a flying TV and we're all good.
