Gleipnir

The description text on AnimeChart didn't really catch my interest too much. I mean, a guy turns into a giant mascot suit? There's a REASON I ditched Furry Fandom when it stopped being about Art and Comics.

But people I follow on Twitter raved about it, and I finally started checking it out. I'm 3 episodes in and it is tremendously mind-fucky. It's much more about poisoned wishes that cost you everything you held dear, and what a monster you become as a result, and our hero is the victim of someone else's wish.


And the episode 3 cliffhanger was so jaw-dropping, I had to post before I watched the next episode, because DAMN!

(Now if I could find a translation that includes the OP and ED. Why are so many circles falling down on this these days?)

1 Episode 4 resolves the cliffhanger in a reasonable way. They find the cause of all the weirdness, and he gives a purely honest explanation that really sucks the mystery out of it all and gives it a REALLY Shonen goal (Except this is emphatically NOT a shonen show.) Hopefully episode 5 improves.

2 And by episode 5, the Shonen plot reveals itself. Wander the woods collecting Power McGuffins, collecting allies and fighting depraved bad guys. They already showed the first Boss.
What a shame.

3 Got to the "End" and while they managed to dodge the shonen plot (Mostly) what they replaced it with was neither very clearly worked out (lots of stuff with erased memories partially coming back and erased again) nor particularly satisfying. Was it left open for a second season? I guess. But the result is very, very incomplete to me.

Because Albedo stopped printing in 2005 and all that was left was Furries?

If you're just looking for the translations of the OP / ED they're here.

5 Plus Radio Comics managed to fall so far behind the bell curve that they were producing more expensive, lower quality comics with no circulation and doomed themselves to extinction, kinda like being two technological levels behind the bots in a world conquest game. And Elin insisted any criticisms I'd made in the past were only to destroy her.
Seriously, $4.99 black and white comics on Newsprint, you're gonna need a REALLY dedicated audience for that, but the material she was running in her anthologies was bottom tier, even for the fandom. She had one guy doing massive 12-pagers for every issue of Genus that made you wonder if the guy had ever actually SEEN a woman. But she kept running it like Kim Thompson with Gnuff because he produced that volume on a regular basis. As if meeting Schedule was the ONLY thing that kept comics on the market. I mean, if your editorial policy kills a Furry Erotic comic, That's pretty bad.
Plus Furries are Cheap. They'll pirate their favorites into extinction. Even Anime fans at least buy the merch or DVDs of things they torrented.

And thanks for the links.
