In that the annoying guy chasing after Lina et el isn’t a real idiot this time.
This plot having someone constantly come back every week to annoy the hell out of Lina has been done already. It was called Slayer Next (with the Zolleaster god worshiper girl) and Slayer Try (with the annoying fox guy and his partner).
I…just don’t think this is as funny any more. Blasphemous as that sounds. I mean, physical humor in anime doesn’t really amuse me as much as it used to.
That said. Gourry keeps on surprising me with his odd encounters and happenings. At least he’s not just a plain idiot any more.
He’s a jellyfish head. XD
I’ll tell ya, nothing’s changed from the original Slayer formula, but something isn’t tickling my fancy.
For the plot of this episode, I pretty much figured out “Chimera” right from the get go.
However, don’t forget that this show will probably give an excellent introduction to people watching anime for the first time, without watching the old Slayers.
I really like it when Lina kicks the inspect into the sky, and then for a reason, she takes off as well. A nice twist on the classic exaggerated power of punches and kicks.
So yeah, I wasn’t bored to death, but that’s because I’m a fan of Megumi-sama and then the rest. But being over 30, I can’t say I get as tickled as I did anymore.
Not unless the slapstick humor comes non-stop. That, I haven’t seen in this one.
