World Trigger is the title of the series which morphs every shonen anime ever in one, messy, ugly and lazy anime. For now.
– So we´re one minute in and I think that I have found my OTP in this anime. Shame that I probably won´t make it past the second episode. Honestly, it wasn´t on my agenda to watch World Trigger anyway, because I expected it to be exactly what it is: A childish show with bad animation that simply not up in my alley. Still.
– The opening song feels like a rejected Kpop hit, naturally, I like it. Everything hereafter is a trainwreck.
Seriously. The fact that our enemies are called Neigbhours says a lot about this show, the fact that we then spend half the episode dicking around in a class doesn´t really convince me. If I were the creator, I´d set up the first episode with the flashiest fight scene of the entire series, not spend 24 minutes showing just how not badass wannabe Near over ´ere is.
No, really, what am I supposed to feel? Am I supposed to like the shota? sympathize with the megane? If anything, the best thing of the entire episode was the pretty face of homeboy in the beginning. That´s it. The rest is boring. Dull. I don´t care about a plot that has been done before and has been done better before, I don´t care about what happens if I don´t like the characters. I just really, really, don´t care.
Conclusion: Toei is shit.
Will I blog this? No. I will probably drop it next week.
