Right, what that indecipherable jumble of letter is meant to symbolise is the first episode of Tatami Galaxy. It could be a wonderfully written piece of critique, and it probably is from what you can decipher, but trying to do so is headache inducing that you just can’t summon the enthusiasm to do so. Tatami Galaxy is great. It has some brilliantly witty turns of phrase such as ‘80% of people thought he looked like a demon, the other 20% were sure of it’ and the animation was hilariously brilliant when I was actually capable of taking my eyes off the bottom of the screen. But the just talk to fast. My eyes started to glaze over after about 15 minutes of this stupidly fast monologues the main character was spouting. I can’t keep up, plain and simple. Honestly, if I played this is slow motion I’d probably enjoy it far more. I want to like it! It has so much to like about it! But there’s no way in hell I can watch this series. They just talk too fast.
Now if you don’t mind, I think I’m going to need a little lie down after that.
