Steven was soliciting feedback on a specific* purchase over at Chizumatic, when I noticed something odd: once again, he’s skipping the rest of The Third: The Girl With the Blue Eye. I’m not complaining, or saying “Steven ought to try…”**
It’s just an observation: if it couldn’t keep his interest, even with its stellar voice cast and characters like Honoka and Bogie, then I was probably right when I said it just didn’t have enough plot. Probably should have been a half-season series; 13 episodes at best.
For anyone else reading this, if this comes out in a bargain thinpack, I’d recommend picking it up. Yes, the narrator is damnned annoying, and Iks is a bland bishie; a walking, talking tofu-pop. But for me, the paydirt was the final face-off between Honoka and Blue Breaker, several episodes before the end of the series. It didn’t go anything at all like I expected.
I’d certainly rate it higher than Gravion. Damn, I’m stuck at the end of DVD 2, and considering adding a “No Mecha” to my heuristic too.
*(Specific, meaning don’t go over there and say “You might want to look at…” And don’t use my blog to do it either. Sturgeon’s Law applies to suggestions too, and he gets cranky when folks don’t understand that.)
