This week on Saber, my patience with this cursed show finally runs out.
So it turns out Kento wasn’t really dead after all! Ah well, if at first you don’t succeed….
With King of Arthur out of his reach, Calibur plans to seize a new source of power. Meanwhile, Daishinji decides to express himself through music. Also, Durian battles Walnut.
Touma is feeling the pressure of wielding the King of Arthur powerup…for some reason. His indecision leads to Ogami getting turned to stone, marginally improving the quality of his character writing.
Touma and Kento drop acid and finally make their way to the legendary Desert of Avalon!…er, Soundstage of Avalon…Concrete Bunker of Avalon?
A lot of things happen! Most of them are very ugly! None of them make sense!
Aki is a thirteen year old who wants people to take him seriously as a man. He moves to Tokyo to establish his manhood free of preconceptions. For some reason he happens to live in a dorm run by an actual child molester and her obviously abused tenants.
Some rando has compassion for lifeless androids, and while that’s dumb his friends nonchalant behavior at their abject desecration is also super messed up. Later on, he randomly is attacked and saved by advanced robo ladies who are fighting for… reasons. She makes him her owner, which is about as creepy as that sounds. Oh, he also has an imouto you’re supposed to oggle! Just friggin’ great…
Like a bolt from the blue, #HATEWATCH is here with its final installment. Start out the new year right by remembering just how bad some of last year’s shows got.
Itsuki reveals the reason he won’t date registered sex offender Nayu: He’s incredibly self-centered. Oh wait, we knew that already.
The worst kept secret in the world gets shared around even more as we learn the dumbest things about Itsuki’s family situation.
#HATEWATCH is become pain. There is nothing left but pain.
Miyako’s birthday comes around and Haruto wants to hit on her. Will I ever be freed of this Sisyphean nightmare?
There are three casual references to rape in this episode. This is supposed to be funny. Or titilating. Or maybe both. By resurrecting #HATEWATCH, I opened the door to a man-made darkness the likes of which have never been seen.
This is literally the most disgusting thing I’ve ever watched.
Itsuki finally ends up where he belongs, a prison cell fit for war criminals.
This is #HATEWATCH 2017. Anime was a mistake.
This is #HATEWATCH 2017 Round 2. The show: A Sister Is All You Need. Its sins: ANIME IS STILL GETTING AWAY WITH THIS LITTLE SISTER BS
Sometimes a show comes along that just deserves to be eviscerated. Perhaps it showcases the worst of anime’s stereotypes. Perhaps it takes an interesting premise and ruins it with befuddling plots or infuriating character arcs. Perhaps you think a show should literally be labelled a war crime by the Geneva Convention. That’s where the HATEWATCH comes in. When the show does it to such a degree, sometimes you need to watch it just for the cathartic value of demolishing whatever dreg of culture or bad taste it represents. This is #HATEWATCH 2017. The show: A Sister Is All You Need. Its sins: ANIME IS STILL GETTING AWAY WITH THIS LITTLE SISTER BS
In which both Marlin and Jel conclude by saying “burn it with fire”.
