WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS PIECE OF SHIT? THIS SHIT IS SO BAD IT SHOULDN’T EVEN EXIST IN THE FIRST PLACE.
Right. Let me calm down a little first.
*takes a few more deep breaths*
Okay, so I finally got to watch this. What I want to say is that this is a huge piece of sacrilege towards the original work and I can’t believe that Kosuke Fujishima actually put the stamp of approval on this piece of crap.
First off, the plot is horribly nonsensical and barely makes sense. It basically boils down to Keiichi inviting Belldandy for a date, which SOMEHOW MANAGES TO TRIGGER A GIANT OVERFLOW OF HAPPINESS from her that affects the ENTIRE FUCKING WORLD and threatens to put all the Goddesses out of their work. Which should be impossible for the first place because:
- Belldandy has numerous power limiters that curtail her Goddess powers substantially.
I find it hard to believe that those same limiters wouldn’t have stopped that GIANT FUCKING OUTFLOW OF HAPPINESS which is basically implied to be caused by her Goddess powers. It’s like they totally forgot about that plot device.
- THAT GIANT FUCKING OUTFLOW OF HAPPINESS itself should even have that kind of range at all, much less LAST FOR DAYS.
Sure, in the manga there was a few times Bell has done this, but even then, the effects were highly localized and affected the whole town at the most. Suddenly now, they want us to believe that Bell has enough power to cover the whole world with happiness, and MAKE IT PERMANENT EVEN. Which brings me to No.3
- The GIANT FUCKING OUTFLOW OF HAPPINESS is apparently permanent.
First of all, this is all connected to Bell’s emotions and I find it hard that she would feel this happy ALL THE TIME. At the most, wouldn’t it be over when the date’s done? In this OAD, they are implying it’s going to be a permanent thing and threatens to make Goddesses obsolete on Earth forever. What the fuck is this shit? Seriously, what the fuck?
Then to make things worse, it’s apparently all a plot by Hild! With the wave of happiness causing everyone to feel happy and satisfied, there will be no need for Goddesses and they’ll be sent packing back home to Heaven while the Demons just waltz in and make Earth a place of pleasure. Again, this shouldn’t even make any sense at all because:
- If everyone’s feeling pure happiness, why would anyone need anything else?
Don’t forget, Goddesses and Demons don’t compete for physical aspects on Earth, they compete for mindshare. And the way they do that is to grant people’s wishes. Now.. if everyone were in a state of pure bliss, WHAT OTHER WISHES ELSE WOULD THEY NEED or even have?! And how would the Demons capture any more mindshare if NO ONE WANTS TO WISH FOR EVERY THING? And don’t even try to justify this the way Hild did. Keiichi was highly affected by that happiness wave, being the closest to the source and all, and he totally lost himself and even said he doesn’t need anything anymore. So WHERE ARE YOUR WISHES NOW, HILD?
- If everyone’s feeling pure happiness, isn’t that a default victory for the Goddess side?
Okay, questions of balance aside, it’s been stated the objective of the Goddeses and Heaven are to spread happiness. And regardless of how it happened, wouldn’t the complete happiness being experienced by everyone mean it’s kind of a default victory for Heaven? And Hild is actually wanting that “plan” to succeed? I CANNOT BRAIN THIS AT ALL.
And then it there was Urd and Skuld (ok, well Skuld not so much) acting quite out of character by trying to prevent Bell from feeling too happy, while Hild is actively trying to make Bell feel pure happiness. It’s just so… ironic. Seriously.
There’s just so many other titbits and minor details in this fucking OAD that just don’t add up at all. And don’t even get me started on how…. mediocre the animation quality was generally.
Anyways, I think I best stop here. My verdict on this OAD?
IT (SHOULD HAVE) NEVER EXISTED.
