Onto episode 4 of this travesty of an adaptation and the anime’s utter gutting of the book plot gives us this slightly weird episode. Romantic leads gotta meet somehow even if the reason for the main character being hospitalised and meeting his cute nurse is completely removed… On the other hand we do get a chance to try and work in one of the book’s favourite phrases…
So apart from my annoyed ranting, enjoy.
In the near future strange robots called Kikou attack Japan, and humanity is forced to use their own Kikous to fight back. But piloting them has a cost…
This is a short one-off TV special, so if you want to spent 22 minutes watching robots fight with some cyberpunk drama, give it a look.
Apologies for the delay on this, stuff came up.
Anyways, here we have the big exposition episode, with new villains, a plot reveal that really should have occured in an earlier ep because it would have made a wonderful villain speech (I’m still convined episode 27 was badly rushed), and some sections where the colours are about as true to life as most of the Jojo Part 4 anime.
Advance warning, this ep has some sections that are mildly disturbing.
Well here we are with episode 3, and we’ve gotten to adapting the Trenco arc of the book (badly). Trenco is probably the most famous planet in the books for its very weirdness; the description in the anime actually paraphrased the book description, so we were referencing that for the translation, hence the wordiness.
