“There is no God in an Electronic World”
Without skipping a beat, things picked up exactly where they left off last time — Sena and Yozora ready to rip each other’s head off. This time, instead of going after each other in the real world their hate spreads into 2D land. Something about watching Sena and Yozora put some oomph behind their insults makes them that much funnier. Starting when Sena “accidentally” destroyed Yozora with a fully charged cleaver attack, I knew it was only a matter of time until the infinite loop of trying to take out the other would begin.
In the second skit, I was a little shocked with how open Sena was about her inner-gamer. Who would have expected that the popular girl who’s constantly surrounded by boys was secretly a gaming addict? I’ll admit that I was a little suspicious when she had busted out her own PlayingStates Portable and had racked up a little over 53 hours of game play over the span of three days, but after deciding that playing a gal-ge would be better than interacting with real people to build social skills, there’s almost no point in trying to even hide it! At the same time, it’s quite convenient how this provides one of the few channels that allows Sena and Yozora to actually get along with each other.
On a small side note, did anyone catch the sneaky tribute to Steve Jobs? I had the feeling that the back of that game box had something special written on it, especially since there was a big blurb of English on it. But after Divine pointed it out, I have to give a thumbs up to AIC and how they managed to perfectly integrate a quote from the speech Jobs gave at a Stanford commencement ceremony — In a show about kids who can’t make friends, it makes a lot of sense to not worry about what your actions will do now but look back at it from the future after you have the knowledge and experience to see how it all lined up. (The quote is the blurb of English at the bottom talking about connecting dots)
Hey guys, I apologize with how late the posts are. If you haven’t already read the sidebar, I was out of town the past weekend for a charity event and I have back-to-back midterms this week. I’ll try to get the rest out in a reasonable amount of time, but I make no promises with all these exams staring me right in the face. Thanks for being understanding <3
