back with the most action-packed yet confusing series of the Fall 2011 season, Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon. The action is starting to really start up, despite the still lacking backstory, as Aoi’s fun gets cut short when something starts happening in New Nagoya and Mikawa. Absolutely no details…so explaining this will be hard.
The leaders of Mikawa have vacated the city of everyone except themselves and an army of self-operating maid automatons. Doing something I don’t understand, they’ve given the Testament Union reason to raze the city, also putting Musashi at risk too. It is still unclear as to why they would do this…not knowing is getting really annoying.
If this doesn’t change soon, watching Horizon is going to feel more like a chore than enjoyment. But if the action were to really pick up (and Aoi and the others actually start fighting) it would be watchable despite the confusing story. A little mystery is fine, but leaving us in the dark for so long like this is not good. At least explain what is happening to Nagoya, whatever it is, it looks like it deserves some discussion or dialogue, or maybe one or two characters yelling “WHAT THE F*** IS THAT???” and then one of the main characters calmly explains “Oh, it’s just…and that’s it.”
I will say this, in favor of Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon…those, are some awesome maid drones they have in Nagoya. Maybe it’s just because Tres Espana had some weak machines, but that one maid really kicked some butt. If Aoi and the gang ever have to go up against the maids, then they’d better bring it, because those drones don’t mess around.
Until next time,
