>What happened? Why are bad things happening in my loli battle ship anime?!
The creators of this anime seem as if they forgot what type of anime they were making by the time they got up to ep 3. The concept of this anime is completely ridiculous and this is reflected by ridiculous character designs. It's meant to be fun and silly and not meant to be taken seriously. Tonally speaking this show went full retarded.
That said, I went into this ep after hearing the fuss people have been trowing lately (yet avoid specific spoilers). I gotta say, people sure are over reacting. It's not like they went full guro or anything, they didn't even mess up her hair like she was worried about. It's like >>21929 said, she'll show up again latter as an enemy for sure to create some drama where they don't wanna fight her but have to and so on and so forth. It was pretty obvious though, I mean it's a new character they just introduced that ep and I don't believe they're in the op. Only thing sad is that I knew she was the one who was gonna get it the second she showed up, the rest of the ep just reinforced that. Kinda lazy directing really, It'd only be a shocker if it was a character that's actually been around since the first ep. How hard would it have been to have introduced her a ep or two ago and let people get a bit attached?
See, with stuff aired on tv you run the risk of people just having started watching that from that ep on or having missed previous eps, creators know this so when they're gonna give a character the axe they shove in as much characterization in that ep as they can to try and make watchers care when that character dies (Fucked if I know why they still do this in the age of DVRs
), problem with this is anyone who's seen their fair share of tv can recognize this. Even then this character wasn't even in this shown before this ep. They both introduce the character and dumped their life story, then pseudo killed them off in the same 20 minutes, wtf?
tldr, I was more bothered by the lazy directing than the (possible) killing off generic cute girl #634
