For this pair of episodes, our commentary includes:
- Our inability or unwillingness to remember a villain’s name
- References to the greatest Harry Potter fanfiction ever written
- AiLied’s thoughts on what a good harem should be
The next post for this show should come out quicker.
Kelloggs: Loli in a box!
Kelloggs: You keep saying The Ruins like that means something.
Keidence: They talked about it before, it’s like the other dimension that they have portals too.
Kelloggs: I wasn’t paying attention.
AiLied: Kelloggs was distracted by Fluffy tits.
PumpkinMochi: At least this wasn’t one color like in Rakudai.
Kelloggs: It does kind of feel though like “I saw this other show do this once so let’s try it here.”
AiLied: That was weird in Rakudai. I did not enjoy that personally.
AiLied: She has a nice butt.
Kelloggs: AiLied, not the time.
AiLied: I mean, it kind of is. They do a good job in this show.
PumpkinMochi: AiLied, you’re missing all the backstory.
AiLied: No, I’m listening to her backstory.
PumpkinMochi: You’re looking at her backstory, but not the right one.
Kelloggs: Shut up, Mochi.
PumpkinMochi: Um, okay.
Kelloggs: Screencap that.
AiLied: He’s Lelouch!
Kelloggs: I will counter your backstory with my own.
Kelloggs: This story sucks.
PumpkinMochi: Getting kind of meta here.
PumpkinMochi: Does that mean Fluffy is Euphie? Euphie, Fluffy. Close enough.
Kelloggs: Let’s go with that. I’m looking forward to Fluffy killing everyone in the next to last episode.
PumpkinMochi: Oh no.
Kelloggs: Gurren Lagann’s back!
PumpkinMochi: They need to be most consistent with their capitalization of the ruins.
AiLied: One of the problems with this translation is that it’s super literal. Like, some of the lines don’t make sense.
AiLied: Like that one.
Kelloggs: It can’t be helped.
PumpkinMochi: Shut up.
AiLied: And the way they translate stuff like the special moves is kind of weird. Divine Dress is a weird way of calling it.
PumpkinMochi: Gotta go for that alliteration.
AiLied: Oh god, this guy. Fucking Edward Elric.
Kelloggs: Tall Edward Elric.
AiLied: Creepy Edward Elric. He’s the Schnitzel we deserve.
Kelloggs: Does this mecha smell like chloroform to you?
PumpkinMochi: The date rape robot?
Kelloggs: Yeah, that would be consistent with his character.
PumpkinMochi: Why is he so evil?
Kelloggs: He’s trying to win the title of Evilest Dude Around.
PumpkinMochi: His helmet thing kinda makes him look like Loki.
AiLied: Loki’s cooler than this guy.
PumpkinMochi: Are you gonna keep monologuing?
Kelloggs: Well, that’s right out of the Evil Villain playbook. If he doesn’t monologue, he’s not gonna be Eviliest Guy.
PumpkinMochi: This show really loves their split screens.
AiLied: He’s Rogue from X-Men!
PumpkinMochi: Oh my god, that line was so bad.
Kelloggs: I did not have relations with that woman, Ms. Krulcifer.
PumpkinMochi: That even kind of looks like Lelouch’s outfit.
AiLied: Looks like his Zero outfit.
PumpkinMochi: Look at those losers in the window.
Kelloggs: They need to get that guy longer sleeves. I know they’re rolled but it looks like they’d be three inches short of his wrists if he unrolled them.
AiLied: It’s fashion in this country. Maybe.
Kelloggs: Oh snap!
PumpkinMochi: Better do it again!
Kelloggs: OH WOW.
AiLied: This time with tongue.
Kelloggs: I think she broke him.
PumpkinMochi: I’m reminded of that bad Harry Potter fanfic. “What the hell are you doing you motherfuckers!!”
Kelloggs: “It was… Dumbledore!”
PumpkinMochi: What? New character?
AiLied: Do you want to claim her, Kelloggs?
Kelloggs: No, no i don’t.
AiLied: I think you do.
Kelloggs: I’m pretty sure I don’t.
AiLied: In a good harem, it’s hard to find the right character. That’s how you know it’s a well-balanced harem. They’re so one-dimensional they need the others to exist as fully-fleshed characters.
Kelloggs: That’s good stuff right there.
AiLied: She’s pretty cool.
PumpkinMochi: Oh, I see where this is going.
Kelloggs: There’s one way to solve this problem.
Keidence: This totally didn’t happen in Date a Live.
Kelloggs: That seems like too much bra for this guy.
PumpkinMochi: They’ll give him stuffing.
AiLied: Yeah, he can wear padding.
Kelloggs: He’s gonna be even more than Krulcifer.
AiLied: Wow rude.
AiLied: She’s talking to cats. This is why I like her, she reminds me of Yui from To-love-ru.
Kelloggs: That’s two ways of saying that.
PumpkinMochi: Veto you?
AiLied: Yeah, these subs are very literal.
AiLied: I don’t think I would like wearing a bra.
PumpkinMochi: Have you tried it, AiLied?
AiLied: I don’t think so. I don’t remember. If I did, I was drunk.
Kelloggs: Good answer, good answer.
Kelloggs: Goddamn, these names…
PumpkinMochi: Oh, is that the guy from last episode?
AiLied: Yeah, evil Edward Elric.
PumpkinMochi: I thought he died, but whatever.
PumpkinMochi: Well now he’s dead.
PumpkinMochi: Oh, misandry. Yes!
Kelloggs: That’s what I’m here for.
AiLied: The fact that he always wears his slave collar is still a little off-putting. Like him and his sister.
Kelloggs: Defeat me in battle, then I will agree that men are awesome.
PumpkinMochi: I like how the birds are just hovering in place there.
PumpkinMochi: Um what. What?
AiLied: This will be extended on the bluray.
Kelloggs: I’m just gonna walk around here with no shirt.
PumpkinMochi: That’s fine. The question is will that towel stay on for the rest of this sequence.
Kelloggs: I’m gonna say no.
Kelloggs: I just carry a big black sword around.
AiLied: I mean, they all carry swords around.
Kelloggs: Seems like a very distinctive one. Seems like it can be recognized.
PumpkinMochi: She’ll recognize it during their duel and go “Wait a second…”
AiLied: Wait for it… wait for it…
Kelloggs: You can’t be half-asleep! It’s either one or the other! There’s no such thing as half!
AiLied: Good lord. This was why it was a hard decision between her and Lise.
PumpkinMochi: What’s hard now?
Kelloggs: Shut up, Mochi.
Kelloggs: What a cliffhanger.
AiLied: Ahahaha, I really like how they did that for this episode.
Kelloggs: Who’s that black-haired one? She’s kind of cute.
