The man knows what he wants and he wants it now.
I’ll flat out admit it, I am perplexed at what exactly Pumpkin Scissors is now. It started as a kickass military show where a big guy took out tanks with a handgun. However these last couple of episodes (five and six) have been really boring and outright weird at times. I mean, all those jokes about Oland’s ” package ” amazing size were out of nowhere (though admittingly amusing). Too bad the rest of that episode was so boring, with the suicide patient and his angst. The show keeps beating into the ground that ” yes life is shit, but we will make it better through DETERMINATION and GUTS! “. Six wasn’t a lot better with the baby. When did I stop watching Pumpkin Scissors and started watching Three Men and a Baby? The comedy was again weird but funny, with all the boob jokes and funny faces flying around. Once again though the story was dull. I know I fell asleep after the mother showed up and another one of Alice’s speeches started up.
It’s bad when this is one of the best pics from the ep.
However, I still have hope for PS. People tell me the manga is outright awesome later on, and I guess I can trust those opinions. The story looks like it will get back on track next week, with Alice meeting her fiance. Alice and her family should be a good watch. Still there’s a massive lack of tanks in a show about…well tanks, and shooting them at point blank. Really that’s why most people are watching this I think. I’m starting to wonder if this is one of Gonzo’s dud shows, or can they just not too comedy? eh I’m kind of leaning towards the later. Someone please scanlate the manga so I can figure this out for myself!
