GOSICK 02

This episode was all “Wa ha ha ha ha ha“.

Seriously, the sole highlights of this episode was the two occasions Victorique pulled that laugh out whenever everyone’s kinda losing their heads left and right and her pipe. Otherwise, it’s “meh”-fest all over again.

It’s really the fault of the source material too, because the “mystery” is extremely stupid and easy to solve. I guess cramping it in to three episodes also doesn’t help either but considering how shitty it is, it’s more than enough for it. At least they kept in all the important parts between Victorique and Kazuya.

    Kazuya may not be Kamina-level Manly, but he gets props for standing between Victorique and Certain Death (although it’s equally Certain the gun was rigged to fire backwards at whoever pulled the trigger or something). The mystery parts are so-so, but I’m watching for Kazuya and Victorique.

    This show isn’t bad and I believe thing will get going after a while. Got a love Victorique’s deadpan laugh, “Wa ha ha ha ha”

    Proof that the mystery genre doesn’t translate well into anything and should be kept in books and badass Sound Novels.

    @Athos: Hey now, the 1974 version of Murder on the Orient Express was a damn good adaptation.

    It’s just that television and film directors seem to associate ‘mystery’ with ‘Scooby-Doo’.

    Victorique seems to add an element of cuteness every episode. Last time it was the rolling scenes, and this time it was the deadpan laughs. What would it be next episode?

    And interestingly, it happens twice per episode.

    I guess this will be my guilty pleasure of the season. As a detective series it’s a complete FAIL, the mysteries aren’t mysterious and nothing that happens makes any sense. But I have taken a liking to the two main characters.

    Well that’s a different reason for a video to be taken down:

    Sorry about that.
