Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou
(Two episodes watched):|
Two girls wander about a frozen wasteland which is full of what were once high-tech weapons of war but are now little more than junk. Judging from episodes one and two, they may be the only characters in the entire series, since no one else turns up. But this episode does little more than introduce the scenario and the two main characters; we get little idea what the fundamental conflict of the series will be. This show is looking like 'post-apocalypse slice-of-life'. Chito and Yuri aren't in immediate danger, they just make a living of sorts scrounging for food, washing their clothes and themselves when they can, making use of precious heated water when it's available, etc, etc. All the while they make small talk. But this small talk seems neither particularly funny nor particularly touching to me, and without either of those (or any action), what am I supposed to watch for? They can't just continue wandering and making small talk for twelve episodes, or at least I won't watch it if that's all they do. The animation--or at least the character designs--are extremely simple. This show doesn't do anything spectacularly wrong, but it doesn't do anything spectacularly right, either. I think I will quit this one.
