Just watched 24. Don't have much to say.
I liked what they did with the mechs.
It was actually kinda a nice episode, but only if you block out all the problematic messages.
Like further glorification of teenage pregnancy. Or the fact that Goro kisses Ichigo knowing the feelings aren't mutual (and this being succesful in starting a healthy relationship somehow). Goro was the good boi. That was out of character. It gets played as "so kawaii" but it wasn't (Ichigo's face was funny though).
Didn't care about Hiro or Zero Two, as characters who only exist within a romance aren't like people. They wrote them to not care about the context at all, and romance exists within a context.
A romance that is "I only care about you and nothing else, and nothing can stop that" isn't a story, it's autoconclusive. They didn't even care
about death. I felt a lil something at the last sequences, but only because passage of time always gets me. It was kinda nice. That doesn't mean it was amazing though.
Really don't think this show came together. Even the characters morph from one thing to another.
At one point the show was (seemingly) about the complications of relationships, and it looked like it was gonna go deeper into that, but the characters just stop caring.
Well Goro didn't stop caring amirite
But Trigger always seemed like the balls to the walls rock'n'roll rebels, when in fact, they actually aren't.
I don't think this show is a good representation of what Trigger is, and at the end each artist has their own views. Nishigori made this show, he isn't even that much with Trigger afaik.
lol, after our scathing reviews in this thread, this post comedic timing is on point.
It is lol.
I expected bad/mixed reception to Franxx 24, but I was thinking more of Promare at that point.
