    Episode 1

    Totally spies.

    What a complete and utter train wreck this show is, and heck there's even an actual train wreck going on in the opening episode. It's a show about Botan and Kuruma working together as spies to retrieve the Tesla shards that have been causing havoc all over the world, and one such shard dropped in Norway.

    It's pretty much all action here, but it's just poorly executed in every way imaginable. And of course, the CG is just terrible in this show, further exacerbated by having characters randomly showing up in 2D. This is at least better than Ex-Arm as the CG is at least a little bit better, but it's pretty clear that this show is a dumpster fire, and Ex-Arm set the bar as to how bad a show can get. Even last season's CGI mess in D_Cide Traumerei at least looked decent enough for me to want to watch, and I would have had the show had a halfway decent story. I don't see that at all coming for this show.

    As usual, the trial period rules are in effect, but it's pretty clear and obvious that with this probably being the worst show of the season that there's virtually no chance this show will stick.

      Episode 2

      Pain on the train.

      And this show continues to be so messed up, although this episode is at least better than the first, if only because there are no 2D characters mixed in, and because Botan got to show what she can do when she's equipped with her spy gadgets and is wearing her combat suit seeing that the flower pattern makes her stand out. Even so, this show continues to be a dumpster fire in just about every way imaginable, save for some of the things that only apply to Ex-Arm. Anyway, I'll stick around for one more episode, but I'm pretty sure that will be it.
