Fucking MADLAX Episode 14

Fucking Madlax is finally back! I apologize for the extended absence, which had nothing to do with my mom’s health (on the steady incline) and everything to do with my being lazy. That’s all behind us now, so let’s tackle Madlax fourteen!

Right off the bat, this episode pulls lame shit very common to anime, though never acceptable; that is, constant replays of shit we’ve just seen minutes ago.

Wait, didn’t I just…

The episode starts by recapping Madlax’s mind-capturing moment from the previous episode, and then replays the entire thing in full no more than one minute later.

Are you shitting me?!

Another six minutes later, the scene is played again, this time in red memory-color as opposed to black, like that will somehow trick us into thinking it’s something different.

Is this even a new episode?

A million other things are re-capped as well. First there’s the scene of Margaret stopping ninjas in her sleep from episode thirteen, then Vanessa remembers buying Margaret’s red shoes from all the way back in episode two. We also get two re-utterances of Madlax’s episode thirteen flashback, again in black first and red the second time.

At least they’ll never have to show these clips again… right?

An entire nine minutes pass before anything resembling new plot development appears in the episode, in the form of Carrossea telling Margaret about how her book is being sought after. Nothing more becomes of this plot point.

And now there’s lesbians, so why am I even complaining, amiright?

Carrossea is the first person to take note of the show’s resident Aztec Space Ninja, seen here standing on a ladder just becasue it’s slightly more ninja-like than standing on level ground with her opponent. Then she “the gods of olympus have abandoned me“s off the edge and disappears with her ninja magic.

Finally, after sixteen minutes of fuck-all occuring, Madlax stars wandering the streets, presumably in search of the red-light district. By the way, for a city with so many lights, so known for being active and tourist-heavy, where the fuck are the people?

Of course she fucking is, this is not news.

Sniper girl has the opportunity to kill Madlax, but relents because Madlax is now retarded; however, Madlax then gets her mind back for no discernable reason and beats up sniper girl. For the fourth or fifth time, she has sniper girl at her mercy and spares her. At this point, I barely even feel the need to point it out. Whereas I raged the other times, now I just sigh, “fuck you, Madlax,” and get on with life.

The episode ends with both Margaret and Madlax wanting pasta for dinner. Bet you didn’t see that coming!

That was fun. It’s nice to be blogging this godawful shit again, even if nothing happened in this episode. Come back next week, and I promise there’ll be a post here!
