Episode 23 – Shangri-La Frontier (03/19/2024)


Hey, bear in mind just a few episodes in the past when there was an enormous in-game world-changing occasion that may change the whole trajectory of how our gamers would work together with the long run world? These had been good occasions, proper? It feels just like the tempo of the present got here to a standstill just some episodes away from the season finale. The complete episode was only a boss battle and we returned to the start of the episode to expertise a unique route. If the present needed to be a sequence of random loopy adventures, that may be one factor. It could make my life extremely tough, as a result of it is nearly not possible to jot down a few present that is so primary, however a minimum of constant.

At some factors I in all probability projected my expectations primarily based on different reveals of an identical nature Shangri-La border. I really feel comfy judging the present by itself deserves after looking behind the scenes, however then I am pushed off the stage and informed to disregard all the pieces I noticed. We’ve got an epic dramatic opening with some new characters and places with this huge looming risk, but it surely does not really feel like we’re constructing in the direction of that. Once I discovered that a variety of the preventing within the new opening was simply the boss battle throughout this episode, I bought a bit irritated. The animation was nice and the music was catchy, however the usual of presentation has already been set so excessive that all the pieces under it feels such as you’re strolling round in a circle. Even Sunraku says the identical factor in the course of the battle! I did not hate this episode, however once I completed it I used to be like, “What occurred?” All I can say is that I hope we do not spend the remaining episodes on uninteresting materials.
