I've been rewatching this video for a while nowhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSrv_n4tw7w
I'll never say that the show is bad, but just look at this video. Look at what we were to expect.
Remember this scene https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mvf_xozqbBw
and tell me if it wasn't going to be a Dark, serious season? Instead it became a stupid romance that makes no sense.
The first three episodes, as we all have discussed, featured awesome action scenes, awesome villains, good soundtrack, character development to Jack. After that, the action scenes had a GROTESQUE drop in quality. THere was no scene worth mentioning, action-wise, instead for, maybe the Jack vs Dark Ashi fight, which wasn't even that good.
The show used to be about Jack, about him trying to find a way home. He was a serious man, he barely spoke, he cared for others. The beggining of the season looked like it was going to be about how the Samurai lost his way, how he became PUNISHED JACK.
It turned silly. IT's not that SJ can't have funny scenes, it always has, but the show just didn't take itself seriously. It was all based on a forced romance with a character that nobody liked.
The beggning of ep 2 was just brilliant, the contast between Aku and jack was amazing.>THere's no way home, there's nothing to fight for
The only time we ever got to see Jack actually talking about how hopeless it all was was in EP 5, and it was quickly and barely interesting.
THere are 2 things, however, that I can say were pretty good about this season, and that's it:>After 13 years, Genndy still knew how to make the show feel like the same show. It never looked like I was watching anything else. I even thought I was watching an old episode in the first scene in which Aku appears>Aku was still the great villain he was in the first show. He was funny and threatening as he always was, it was a pretty good job that they did
ALso, no action scene envolving the fucking MAIN VILLAIN, what the fuck, Genndy?
