humans discriminating against people born/given superpowers (again, just like Tokyo ESP and before that the Unlimited and Black Bullet),
megalomaniacal “mutant” who wants to kill the humans for discriminating against them and have their own state
villains working together only to betray each other
nobody actually dies
you have a “beast”
today’s episode he fought a “blob”
oh, and EVERYONE JUST LOST THIER POWERS
I bet you just for the hell of it, if the show gets an English dub, they have Cathal J. Dodd do. .… .shit… .who’s voice would he do? Who’s the “Wolverine” of Hamatora?
shit, I guess it’s Nice-kun.
He might have to lighten up the voice a little bit, because Nice is NOT as old as Wolverine (but he’s certainly immortal, isn’t he?)
I’m not dissing the show. The second season has been ridiculously good, and so much of an improvement over season one, but I’ve been saying since the beginning IT’S X-MEN, and too many anime are X-Men right now.
You have Tokyo ESP in the same fucking season, for fucks sake, and i wasn’t watching two of these shows at once (I don’t count Tokyo Ghoul… … .should I be counting Tokyo Ghoul? Mutants don’t have to eat humans. Ghouls do. I think it’s different.)
As far as X-Men anime goes, I rate them like this.
1. The Unlimited
2. Re: Hamatora
1000. the X-Men anime
2299904567406. Black Bullet
Tokyo ESP goes somewhere in between 2 and 2299904567406.
I dropped it after one episode…sorry…maybe if it had come out two years ago when I wasn’t tired of this kind of shit.
I don’t want to see another “people hate us because we were born with special powers” anime again for as long as I fucking live.
Stop it, B.
