Preview: Fireball CharmingPosted: April 11, 2011
Oh yeah, I’m on a roll.
…That’s about it. Shortest summary ever, right?
There’s no real plot to this series, nor does it need one. They’re just 2-minute clips of Drossel and Gedächtnis talking, basically. There was actually a funnier part I wanted to use for the preview, but it would have been too many pictures.
Honestly, it’s damn good at verbal humor, and visual humor occasionally too. Admittedly, a lot of the jokes are based around Japanese wordplay, so the jokes don’t always translate perfectly, but it’s still pretty funny. Especially considering they’re extremely good at the timing. The speed they talk at combined with when they interrupt each other is perfect. It just adds even further to the jokes.
Basically, there’s no reason you shouldn’t be watching these 2-minute shorts. And if you haven’t watched the first season made about two years ago, do so now.
