The Truth Hurts

Steven remarked yesterday that I’m stupid.  I really think he meant Wonderduck, based on his preceeding paragraph, but it might as well be me, as I’m guilty of the same thing.  A while back, despite fair and adequate warning, I watched Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan.  It was an 8 episode (@15 min each) gruesome comedy series involving an angel equipped with a spiked bat.  The story is that God decided that there was at least one sinner that deserved to die, and die young–still in high school. The point was to keep him from inventing an immortality treatment that would, due to his lolicon preferences, stop women’s aging at the physical appearance of 12-year olds.  Except Dokuro-chan had rebelled against God and decided to keep him alive. By distracting him with games, temper tantrums, and the occasional striptease, she planned to prevent the invention of such a terrible thing. (I mean 16-year-olds, maybe, but twelve?  That’s just excessive.)

Unfortunately for her plan, she kept killing him anyway, because as angels go, she was rather tempermental.  So she’d ressurect him, at least until she lost her temper again. Then it was another bloody death.  The first episode was actually funny, the second one less so, and by the fifth one, it was a clear case of, “ARGH! Don’t kill him, kill ME!!!!!”  Seriously, if there is a silver lining to the blood-red cloud of gore that this series produces, it’s that it gives me a yardstick to measure truly bad anime against.  Don’t make the mistake of thinking that it’s so bad it’s good.  That’s where I went wrong.  This show is so bad it’s horrible.

Now I just need to find someone I won’t mind making a lifetime enemy out of, so I can inflict it on them.  Misery loves company…

  1. AAAAGH! AAAGH! I think I must be the stupid one for that! AAAGH!

    Well, like I said, I was guilty of the same thing, despite fair warning — so that makes me stupid too! :-)

    Further confession: I actually chuckled at the last scene.

  3. Ubu Roi says:

    Oh dear. DrHeinous has actually expressed a desire to see if the show is really that bad. I gather he was amused by the “stupid mix-up” and curious as to how it could be so atrocious. I swear, I didn’t entice him.

    What is it about this show, that everyone’s making like lemmings? Does no one believe us fools when we say “no, it really isn’t so bad it’s good! It’s bad! It’s really, really bad!”

    Sigh. Remember, curiosity killed the otaku!

    The President of the Duck U. Anime Club On Hiatus desperately wants me to burn the show for him. Even after I explained to him that I would rather stick flaming steel I-beams in my eyesockets than watch another minute of Dokuro-chan, he wants to see it.

    Lemmings, indeed, except lemmings can’t help being lemmings. The PotDUACOH has no such excuse.

    Of course, I’m going to do it.

    I DID draw the line at AMV HELL 0, however. He wants that, he’ll have to d/l it himself.

  5. Ubu Roi says:

    Heh. I actually thought that AMV HELL was kind of funny, in a bizarre way. Although I’m not clear if we’re talking about the same AMV; I think I saw HELL 1 on YouTube. Thought about 2, but it was too long to waste time with.

    Edit: oh, and due to timing issues and other committments, DrH escaped with his psyche unscarred.  Lucky him.

  6. Wonderduck says:

    Oh, no, we’re not talking about the same thing. AMV HELL is good. AMV HELL 2 is good. AMV HELL 3: The Motion Picture is great. Even AMV HELL: Championship Edition isn’t too bad.

    AMV HELL 0 is the same concept, done entirely with hentai. It’s evil.

  7. Ubu Roi says:

    Oh. My. God. [has visions of tentacle porn done to a disco beat...] AAAAAAGGH! DAMN MY IMAGINATION!!!

  8. Wonderduck says:

    Two (more or less safe) things from AMV 0:

    First: CORN! and MORE CORN! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUm7DEC_lls&feature=PlayList&p=1C3D5A573CBF53CD&index=8

    Then a little thing from Elfen Lied: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tud-Q8z9TdE&feature=PlayList&p=1C3D5A573CBF53CD&index=1

    And just imagine… these are the SAFE ones. It gets a LOT worse from here.

  9. Ubu Roi says:

    Hmmmmm. That “more or less” worries me. I think I’ll wait until I’m safely at home on my own computer to view those…. :)

  10. Wonderduck says:

    Probably a wise decision. There’s nothing wrong with them, per se. It’s all implied.

    But the implication is pretty wrong.
