World Trigger Episode 8
Oh boy! More duck face and wet blanket! How did you know what I wanted for Christmas Japan? Can I open my present now? OH BOY!
The episode picks up where we last left off. With Duckface getting shot by a sniper
However it turns out that duckface is only not completely whooping their butts because he doesn’t want to kill them. Eventually the A ranked guys throw magical weights at him to make him heavier
however he basically just takes their power and throws it back at them and the battle’s over.
That’s when Jin shows up and basically tells everyone including the snipers to give it up unless they want their shit wrecked. The guy with the spear backs down and the two snipers do as well but the emo looking fucker is all mad because a neighbor killed his sister and blah blah hates them all blah blah sadness
Eventually they all head back to the headquarters to talk about the fact that wet blanket was covering for duckface being a neighbor and…wait…oh god. headquarters?! that means.. OH GOD NO!
OH FUCK. IT’S THESE GUYS AGAIN!
Ugh. These bureaucratic idiots. I think their whole purpose is to have you rub your temple in disgust over how annoying half of these idiots are.
Also, i’ve noticed something. They make the nice ones look really bishie and the douchebag ones look really fucking stupid looking.
Let’s have a comparison
Because remember kids. Ugly people are always douchebags. And that’s your moral for the day.
So we learn about a thing called a Black Trigger. Basically when a really powerful guy dies, he can pass on his trion to a trigger and it can be passed down to whoever it is deemed worthy too. These are very rare and very powerful. And duckface has one. Hence why he was able to wreck shit.
Jin has a great idea though. Bring Duckface into the fold so they’ll have the power of a black trigger neighbor on their side. maybe gain some much needed intelligence on the neighbors in general, help with trion research and who knows what else! Truly duckface would be a valuable ally to Border, right guy in charge?
GODDAMN IT GUY! YOU AND TIGRE ARE WHY WE CAN’T HAVE NICE THINGS!
(sigh) yeah. his idea is basically ‘kill duckface, take trigger’. Awesome plan. you know, I wasn’t going to pin you as a bond villain cause of the scar because i didn’t want to typecast, but fuck you, you’re a Bond villain.
The episode ends with him telling Jin that he has to do it because apparently Jin has a black trigger as well.
The funny thing is, i knew EXACTLY how this episode was going to play out before I even saw it. I knew only part of it was going to be the battle and most of it was going to be talking, what i DIDN’T know was that this episode would have copious amounts of flashbacks. Fucking Flashbacks.
The other thing that’s really grating on my nerves is the whole “Border is run by a bunch of jerk incompetent adults and only the kids can save the day” bullshit. Sure there’s a few good adults in the upper echelons but they’re always drowned out by the idiotic ones. I mean, a neighbor in human form. isn’t that a worth a LITTLE investigation? I mean they’ve been up against these neighbors, know nothing about them, fuck they don’t even know they’re ROBOTS, and now, this guy shows up from their dimension and is like “hey, i’m the key to a bunch of shit” and the guy in charge is like
REALLY? Seriously? That’d be like in Pacific Rim if a dude showed up from the same universe as the monsters and didn’t want to hurt anyone in fact HELPED YOU BEAT THE MONSTERS and the dude from the movie’s like “hey, let’s bring him on the team so he can help us in INUMERABLE WAYS. and the captain guy from the first movie’s like “Naw, fucking kill him and take his shit.”
This is a PISS POOR decision. I call for a vote of no confidence on this douche.
Regardless, I kind of knew what was going to happen in this episode (minus his douchy decision) and…it didn’t excite me. So um…it was…okay? I guess?
P.S. Holy crap almost forgot!
