Winter Stream 2016: Myriad Colors Phantom World: Episode 6
Interesting visuals aside this episode involving Kurumi coming to terms with her feelings of uselessness and ineptitude feels like more of the same sure it gives some good character development to Kurumi who has been little more than a background character and a bit player. No real progression happens it's simply replacing the monster of the week nartive structure with a journy to the center of your mind style fantasy sequince with a battle with a gian mecha bear. Still I wish something more than this would happen six episodes in as what little charcter devlopment there is is shallow and nothing feels defined instead a collection of set peices and scenery in wich the charcters feel more like archatypes or objects acted upon fo the sake of the narrative instead of real players in a fantasy uneverse. It's tiresome becuese this is a series that is not so much bad as it is tedious and inspid or a well made attempt at nothing much.
