「文化祭なら頑張ると思った？」 (Bunkasai nara Ganbaru to Omotta?)
“I Thought We Would Do Our Best at the Culture Festival?”
PvP comes to Legendary Age.
Setup For Storming the Castle
I can’t help feeling the narrative setup of this episode was a bit wonky, though maybe that’s ’cause I’m hungover and feel like death. (It’s probably that.) This episode was a bunch of setup for the battle which wasn’t even shown (also, meido Ako), so I watch it and was like “Guh. More please.” Which is better than being bored, and to the studio’s credit they axed the ED in order to have more time to finish setting up the keep attack, but we were left without much happening this episode other’n gags. Such is the curse of the 30-minute runtime. At least we’ll hit the ground running next episode.
Master Sucks at PvP
Of all the PvP gags this episode, probably my favorite was when Rusian and Ako absolutely wrecked Schew, but there was a certain amusement in seeing the uber-geared Master get repeatedly taken down ’cause she’s crap at PvP. The siege warfare reminded me of RvR in Dark Age of Camelot and Warhammer Online, which are games I don’t think about often enough I feel. Once again, Netoge is so true to (game) life—all the attackers just rush in and get torn to shreds, until they don’t. Also, a guild of combat meido. What is this, Heavy Object? Though I’d be fine with a bunch of combat meido Akos. Squishy, yum yum.
tl;dr: @StiltsOutLoud – It’s PvP time, and Master is crap at it. Lots of setup for the big battle next time #netoge 10
