I get depressed watching the generic cycle-through-the-clichés eroge adaptations. I get horrified watching a bunch of girls being insufferably nice to each other. I get annoyed watching sexual acts being mentioned and then thinking that constitutes as a joke. But there are two kinds of anime in this world that make me rage. The first is anything by Go Nagai. The second is self-referential otaku crap. Oretachi ni Tsubasa is exactly that, and boy did this show ever piss me off.
This is the ultimate example inward looking self-referential otaku pandering piece of shit that I hate. The jokes (when they’re not mentioning sexual acts and then pretending that counts as a joke) is that the characters are all standard anime stereotypes and pull off standard anime stereotype acts or responses, but they reference the fact that they are pulling these otaku stereotype acts so that means it’s like, soooo funny! Or they pretend the character is going to act one direction that boring old VN style characters go in but then yell the fact that they’re going in a different direction and ho ho ho I’m laughing so hard that I stabbed myself in the eye. Fanservice too. I think it’s meant to be ironic use of fanservice. Here’s panties oh ho ho aren’t we funny because we showed you panties. You’re all pedophiles anyway so here’s some 6-year old girl in black lace panties too. There was censor tape over the crotch region that obscured only a tiny part of the panties, but if you get the DVD release you get that 6-year old camel toe you’ve been dying to fap too. Hurrah!
The show is awful in a general sense too, apart from my personal rage point of self-referential crap. The animation is dreadful. The characters all look the exact same except with different hairstyles. Wait no, I take that back, their hairstyles are pretty much the same too. You would think that I would have at least been able to tell the characters apart by their personalities since they were meant to be lampshading stereotypes, but they all yelled their responses anyway so it made no difference to me in the end. The direction of the show has the focus of a goldfish, giving up halfway through some gags because ooh look another girl with the exact same face, body, outfit, hairstyle and personality has appeared, let’s get a little kid to pull down her panties yay! Best part of the episode was where they stuck the characters in a fantasy setting in the ending song, if only because I would much prefer to watch any sort of generic fantasy anime over this pile of shite.
OK, I’m done.
And to think there’s still the Go Nagai anime coming up…
