Random Anime Picture #95: The Third Best Sniper...

You know how I knew that the new series Triage X was from the same guy who did character designs for High School of the Dead?

-Triage X, Ep01
Well, that and the nigh-on fetishistic abuse of women that abounded in the episode.  We've seen that before from Shoji Sato, as well as his... um... particular attention to proportions.

Swear to god, this cast is more top-heavy than a US destroyer in 1945... again, not like we haven't seen that before from this guy.  There is plenty of action, which seems to be taking the place of a coherent plot or serious characterization. 

I'm not sure if this is an episode title or just confirmation of my feelings about the show.  I'll pass, thanks, and if you have the sense evolution provided to sloths, you will too.  Ye cats and little fishes, this was unfortunate.

1 Maybe I'm just getting old, but while the top-heavy character design thing has never really been my cuppa anyway, lately it's become an active turn-off for a show. If that's all it has "going for it," the show's a write-off.

3 Someone should point out to Ms. Barrett that a skin-tight black rubber body suit is not the best camouflage in an urban environment.  Also, her spotter should actually be spotting for her, not taking a nap.  (I can just imagine the reaction of a helicopter pilot flying over this scene:  "Hmm, she's got a really nice rack, and her friend is HOLY $*!% SNIPER!!!")

4 I sure hope the tornado warnings were working in your area today!

It worked on me.  I didn't notice she had a gun the first time I looked at the picture.  Kind of got stuck on the middle and lower portions.
