That and the writing falling to pieces in the second half and the thing what Ragyo did to Satsuki.

Man, I get why the second half got lamer after the awesome reveal, thatís just because Trigger just canít stick the landing from what I can tell except for Inferno Cop and largely LWA, but why was that show so thirsty?

Touchť, I guess it really shouldnít bother me in the context of Yoko wearing something thatís pretty much as blatant fanservice so I donít really know why Ryukoís outfit does except that itís not a very cool or funny joke to have her be uncomfortable wearing it? Idk I guess I should just chill

i dunno why people still say trigger's incapable of sticking landings when every show they make that has issues ends up showing them pretty early on, and the ones that don't have them generally have pretty good endings. not like something like kiznaiver just spontaneously started being lame in the last two episodes, show was a mess from day 1

But it was a mess that had its moments, which kept people hopeful. Yes, I'm still on the "Kiznaiver was mediocre but not a bad watch" team. Probably a Mari Okada script that just didn't have enough time to breathe.

Luluco was fun pretty much all the way through, except for some of the middle episodes which made no sense if you weren't immersed in other Trigger stuff.

i'd be neutral on kiznaiver if the way they handled honoka didn't suck

it was cool when they gave her an interesting dynamic with niko for five minutes and then never had them interact again


really i don't think having more time to breathe would improve any of kiznaiver its characters just aren't remotely well-defined and don't have compelling or consistent arcs. it wouldn't fix how they set up direct parallels in honoka's relationship with the blue guy with the story she wrote with her friend where a lesbian throws herself on a dude out of sadness that she couldn't actually be with a person she actually loved and then just... never... acknowledged that again.

Theres two interesting characters in kiznaiver and the story seems terrified of either of them getting screentime

this char is good


It's still interesting to me that Franxx started kinda mediocre, had a really surprisingly strong middle, and then died at the end. I wouldn't call it an outright unique trajectory, but it's cool to find this little island of strong storytelling and character development in the middle of a lot of what ends up being random stuff. Almost felt kind of true to life in that way lol

ill defend kiznaiver having a really strong opening, it definitely falls apart but i can't bring myself to say it was a mess from day 1. it's been a while but ep 1 for sure was gripping to me, especially because it ends on honoka setting up her reason for being there as i killed someone

i don't think kiznaiver really started to lose itself until halfway through when it tries to weirdly pair people off that hadn't talked at all, and id be pretty satisfied if it had ended on the honoka focus ep tbh

Has there ever been a series that answers why robot war vehicles would have an obvious weakness like mechanical, jointed legs in the first place? Like, I know it's stupid of me, but I've never been able to see one of those mechas without wondering why nobody just blows the legs off one of them and leaves it flopping around on the ground barely able to move.

I think it comes from a lifetime of studying IRL armored vehicles.

The standard excuse is so they can operate in any terrain/environment. There are also special cases like Evangelion where the "robots" are clones of an alien that humans put armor on, so they didn't have much choice in the matter.

The ending is a bit limp and undercooked, and doesn't build that well on the rest of the show. Could have used an extra episode.

More to the point, they're clones of creatures extremely closely related to humans. Anno making a kaiju show starring literal giant people in rubber suits is a fantastic joke.

the first half of kiznaiver isn't as bad as the second half but i think it still suffers from some similar issues to the back half even if not as severely and the context of what the full story ended up going for mangles any parts of the first half that i liked

like taking the first half on its own i still wouldn't really care if you like. tossed out 2/3 of the cast. you wouldn't really lose anything without purple guy other than a bit more bizarrely incoherent character writing.
