That makes two of us. Didn't like this episode one bit. Not only was it pure Quality from start to end but the development everything I didn't want to see.

Spoiler for episode 10:


More than disappointed, I'm angry at this episode. I'll pretend I didn't watch it, will spent a far better week.

I'm really hoping this talk about episode 10 looking bargain bin is a false alarm.

So, you're angry, because everything you thought would happen, happened? Excuse me?

I fail to see your point. Who cares about Shaft? This is shitty enough, and I'm not the only one who thinks that way.

You cannot expect a two-cour anime to maintain a high level of art quality over the course of its entire run. Episodes like this are GOING to happen, and besides, it looked fine in the parts that mattered.

I don't understand why you're so angry.

I haven't seen it yet, but just because there's worse doesn't mean people shouldn't complain about it.

Huh? I thought my "doesn't bother me in the slightest" line was sign enough that I was just throwing out my opinion on the matter. I wouldn't argue that people shouldn't criticise it.

Unless you're talking about Kaisos, then nevermind.

Because quite a lot of scenes and reactions in this episode were predictable made it slightly boring at first, especially since Quality Quality Quality.
But this isn't what really bothered me. It's everything else. Stuff we couldn't see coming and I would have preferred not to see happening.

See, I don't really care about Shou and I don't like Kanba, at all. But after this episode I don't see how anybody else in the story, on the "good" side at least is going to have any importance. And by "importance" I don't mean waiting for someone to come rescue you. I mean active role.
Damn, even in the opposite camp they manage to ruin a character who, until tonight, was damn cool.

So, angry? Yes. Not to say the serie has gone to trash in one episode of course. But the direction it's taking is enough to worry me.

I don't understand why you liked it, so we're even. That said, let's just put the matter to rest.

I wasn't talking to anyone; just an observation.

Looks acceptable, then again I've seen some legendary off episodes in my time. I'll have some links when I get home.

Why would you watch a show if you hate the main characters, who are inevitably going to get more focus than anyone else?

Just drop it now.

I don't think it's bad enough to be worth complaining about.

It's not bad enough for you, but It's not up to you to decide what's worth complaining about for other people.

So, you think it's a good idea to fill the thread with complaints about something that is largely inconsequential?

You're failing for the second time at understanding what I write.

But to answer you, Kanba is only one of 4 main characters, definitely not enough to drop a serie which until now had a topnotch realization and fascinating scenario.
Heck, I'm not going to complain because he gets more focus in some episode like this one, that's perfectly fine and I'm actually looking forward to know more about his background (for the sake of the story). The problem is when all three others co-protagonists are reduced to a completely passive role. Which could possibly last for a couple of episode or more for at least two of them.

You still don't get it. It's inconsequential for you. It's not up to you to decide what's inconsequential for the rest of us.
