A series formerly believed to the epitome of loli excellence, C3, now appears to be superior in nothing but pantsu service as the plot is no longer coherently understood by mere humans, nor is there a central focus.
Within his home, our dull male lead is discussing the current situation with his harem – a scene we’ve seen in practically every episode. The topic now is a recent spree of murders in which our cute cube believes her companion in flat chest, Kuroe, may be involved in. Fear becomes upset, though as she does, everyone else learns that Kuroe is innocent. Then shortly after that are we met with the arrival of the blonde haired busty woman once again, holding true to the physical characteristics shared by every total antagonist thus far.
This blonde defeats all our characters in a minute or so without any thrilling spectacles of combat, locking up Haruaki, the class press, and Kuroe in some container somewhere – using them as hostages to acquire the Fear-In-Cube. Kirika’s laboratory friend then arrives, rescuing only her in a fashion quite crude, then suffering near death as Kirika awakens traveling against her will in a vehicle which she promptly brings to an unrealistically explosive stop.
Kirika heads off to the Haruaki homes where the adorable cube and Cow Tits sit in contemplation of how to rescue their romantic interest and lolita friend.
For every five minutes of dialogue throughout C3 regarding an aspect of plot, only a single sentence of it can be comprehended – essentially leaving only a pathetic story which one could sum up in no more than several lines of words. While watching, one will indeed have no trouble following along with the major events – although this is due to the visuals.
The details behind the occurrences transpiring within C3 are obscure – a reason for this being that as one may have come to notice already, for the past several episodes, C3 has been predominately conversation of things taking place, rather than an actual representation of them. More simply said, it is as if they’re only animating the parts in between the actual story which any other anime would have normally just had a fade to black scene transition.
Nearly nothing meaningful happens within this episode – and the developments which are in fact with purpose in relation to the plot, are made extended to use more time than they truly required, wasting a significant amount of the limited screen time available.
Adding to the failure already prominent, it’s no longer clear who the main character is any more as it seems that as of late, no single character receives a significant segment of spotlight over the others. And that is not to say the series is well balancing them either, rather, it’s running in circles and panicking – unable to concentrate on anything for more than a moment. Although we’re assuming Kirika is the current main character, considering how blatantly it dropped our Fear-In-Cube, we’d not be surprised if she loses ground as well.
Going on the presumption that Kirika is the leading character now, this episode still did not elaborate her situation. The characters still refer to items never explained, and quite frankly, the story is still not making any sense.
Being only “humans” without any special abilities, perhaps that is why this supernatural series became nonsensical and not worth watching several episodes in.
