I just took a look at the first episode of Hamatora. To paraphrase the Gillies Report‘s parody of Pope John Paul II: Stop it, stop it, or we’ll go blind.

This show is simply PAINFUL to look at with:

  • Massive colour contrasts that are hurtful;
  • Rapidly flickering screens almost to the point of inducing epilepsy; and
  • Text that flashes up and disappears before you even know it is there (let alone have a chance to read the subtitles)

There’s so much happening so fast that I simply couldn’t keep track.

Just after the opening credits I stopped wanting to.

No image or opening credits in this post.

I may be evil enough to link to TV Tropes on a regular basis, but even I have standards regarding what I’ll inflict on my readers.
