Generic shounen action series, Code:Breaker, has received a second preview – successfully managing to make itself look even more horrible than it originally did by means of unprecedented genre conventionality.
Available below, the video is honestly impressive how banal it is – managing to embody the sheer essence of the phrase “shounen action series”. A heterochromatic antagonist in a tasteless green seifuku, with his sleeves rolled up perhaps to indicate his rebellious villain status, seems to have powers as incredible as they mystic and ambiguous – allowing him to simply thrust his arms back and somehow be able to rip apart concrete and solid earth like an effortless task.
Better yet, he apparently goes to lofty places at night and stands on the edge of a long fall to his death so he can talk to himself – proving that he’s a true evildoer to be feared indeed as surely none want to associate with the senile.
Not stopping there, the video makes an exhibit of the most the dreadful free falling scene ever to have been devised around 23 seconds into the clip – looking as if it were a concoction of rotating backgrounds, atop of blasting fan, very much akin to a cheap film. And capitalizing on that, the PV continues with some more ridiculous road destruction – polished off with even more terribly animated motions, finalized with a release date and general information, alongside a manga propaganda moment.
Poor as this PV may be, one can at least take respite in that the animation quality of bland series as this might become on par with year 2000 era works of anime in another 20 years or so. And hopefully, someone would have come up with an original story by then as well.
