TAAN: Sometimes, I wish I didn’t need sleep.

TAAN: As many of you know, I am very behind in work. That is because of reasons that keep changing, aka I make up too many excuses too fast. Of course, not all of them are bad excuses, but that’s not important. Anyways, because of that, I’ll be doing a series of multi-episode posts for each of the 3 anime I’m in charge of that still need doing. First up is this: Slap Up Party: Arad Senki Episodes 6-9. I hope you’ll enjoy them and forgive me for being such a bad member of the blog.
TAAN: Review-Highlights-Thoughts isn’t working how I want it to. I’ll go back to doing random things. Possibly. That and I have too much in my head right now, so things will get confusing.
TAAN: SUP Senki is really amazing. It really is. I don’t know how or why, but they actually seem to be trying to pull a straight up generic RPG-style storyline. I doubt anyone in their right mind would even attempt something so ridiculous, but here they are, doing it. I have no idea how it’s going to turn out, but for now, here’s the review.
Yocto-Summary: This GIRL (do they even mention her name?) joins the PARTY in the most HYPERCLICHE way possible. That’s really all the IMPORTANT BITS.
Look! A random generic Party!
Generic Random Innocent Kid:
Generic interrogation failures:
Generic Rejection Backstory:
Generic Boss w/ Generic Grunts:
Generic Power of friendship, Activate!
Generic Joining of Party:
And this. What is this?
Ending Thoughts: Incredible. No plot twists (unless you’ve never watched anime or played video games before. Then the whole “she actually just wanted to be in a happy party” thing might count as a twist. Might.), no parodying, nothing but pure overused plot devices. The only thing that prevents me from thinking that this will go on insanely cliche is the ED, which is so genius that it makes up for the genericness of the show by making it seem on purpose for some good secret reason.
TAAN: Also, DAMMIT WORDPRESS! “What you see is what you get?” Yeah right. I was supposed to be done hours ago, but no, your autodeletion of whitespace characters is infuriating. And those caption boxes. What the hell? They take forever to format correctly and aren’t nearly as flexible as I’d think they’d be. So much pain for nothing!
Episode 3: 8/10 (It’s far too daring to make something so average for it to be rated lowly. And it’s certainly entertaining enough anyways…)
Anticipation: 9/10 (Just what are they doing?! Surely there must be something interesting eventually…)
Steve: I added Slap Up Party to my list just in time for Episode 2. Because I know Taan has a tendency of skipping episodes, I will blog this one and add more post counts to my overall number. Joking. I’m blogging this episode of Slap Up Party because I am interested in seeing my blogging style with this type of anime. It’s crazy and fail enough in the first episode for my style but who knows? What if Slap Up Party become the gem of the season? Nope. Not really. I can dream can I? Let’s see where our hero travels to this time.
Marissa: YEEEES!!! A competition between the guys and the gals~~~~~~~!!!!!! I’m TOTALLY IN!!!!! Even though I want to join, I HATE fanservice anime and I HATE boobs………… so I am playing it safe by picking an anime that I don’t think will have TOO MUCH fanservice or boobs……. I’m going to be SOO MAD if I’m wrong. GRRRRRRRRRRR!!!! This anime is adapted from an RPG game RIGHT?!!!!!! How much fanservice can it have……????????? ANYHOO, another point for the girls and if this anime lives up to MY value of ENTERTAINMENT, I might become a regular blogger for this. We’ll see~~~!
