Blade and Soul, the plundering


My memory of Blade and Soul was that it was dreadful, but also loaded with gratuitous fan service. In particular the gun-wielding assassin gainaxed the entire time she was on screen.

So it would seem like a natural for plundering for the top rotation. However, y'all have interesting tastes and, for instance, let me know you didn't want me to plunder Queen's Blade.

So how do you feel about this particular show? Worth it? or kryptonite?


Reason I ask is that a full BD rip just came by and I got it.

1 I've never seen it but the show does look eminently plunderable, though the readers admonition against Queens Blade has me flummoxed. (Perhaps there was a choice given?) 
In any event, my vote is to plunder, pilfer, purloin and pillage purposefully.

2 I made it about five episodes into this when it was airing, and then became utterly bored with it.  All I remember is that the story was a complete mess and the cheesecake wasn't enough to overcome it.

Your mileage may vary.

I've been working backwards from ep 12, and yesterday I finished ep 8. It is so heavily depressing, though, that I've been having a hard time sticking with it. Alka, the nominal heroine, is suffering from the worst case of PTSD I've ever seen in anime, reducing her later in the series into a quivering pile of angst.

Early in the series she was just stoic, never showing any expression or emotion. Late in the series she spends all her time crying.

I don't need help feeling depressed, and I'm not sure I've got it in my to finish this.

Maybe I should download To Love-Ru and process that instead.

I gave up. Instead I just ran the rest of Nanoha Vivid and got another 82 candidates.

And I've downloaded the second and third To Love-Ru series and will be taking a look at them tomorrow.

5 The hard part there is finding enough SFW shots...

6 To Love-Ru is amazing in the sense that so many story arcs end in a crotch faceplant.

7 After 13 episodes I've only seen two of those. (One each Haruna and Eve.)

8 Steven,      the one thing I remember about this series with some fondness was the closing animation, with the innkeeper doing the dance with the fan...
