Well, at least she didn’t throw a spirit ball… yet.
Well, I’ve got to admit that this ended up being a rather entertaining episode, if for no other reason than the twist in it was so ridiculous that I spent more of the horrible horrible Shade/Torch POWER OF PARTNERS flashback still laughing about it. You really have to wonder. The staff clearly knows how ridiculous some of this stuff is, or they wouldn’t be drawing EYEBEAMS in the eyecatch, but they just go ahead and do it anyway. I think the artists may be trying to rebel against the writers, or at least put the blame firmly on anybody but themselves. I can’t really blame them either.
So, yeah, Dia (or whatever the horrible spelling for her name is), is a super sayain who is able to outpower every single other character on the show, except for perhaps Tuxedo Mask with his still as of yet insufficiently defined powers. Time stop, my ass. I’m not sure what form of time stopping lets matter pass through you, or turns you into an 80 foot tall pontificating doofus. Ascouer and Dia’s shenanigans with Q at the start were as painful as one would expect, but at least that’s par for the course. I was rather amused that Hiver et all were just watching… fairly bored, mind you… as a mad bomber took out their security forces and was tossing explosives all over a public building. "Should we do something about this? Naaaaaah." Shade and Torch’s all too long flashback where they practically made out was also dumb. At some point, someone in G-Society will have a thought and realize that the reason Tuxedo Mask always shows up to save super powered people from hackneyed plots is because he’s the one that machinated them in the first place. Or not. We’ve already firmly established the stupidity of the characters in this show. It’d be a shame to buck that trend now.
Oops. Back to filling in time with nonsense.
