One thought on “TangleCast 4: Girls Beyond the Wasteland

  1. I agree that Shoujo-tachi was utterly mediocre, and it would have been nice to learn more about VN production. But it was mostly from Bunta’s point of view, and as a creative writer (albeit a writer of very different mediums and genres), I really enjoyed the writing parts of it, including his interactions with other writers and the way the others kept him accountable to his deadline. I found it relatable and often amusing. Those parts alone made the viewing worth it for me… even if my reaction to the show over all is still “meh.”

    I took notes on what I did and did not like about Shoujo-tachi throughout the season, just in case I was assigned it for the reviews, so I could look up more specific examples… but nah. This show isn’t worth that defense, and I’d find just as many examples of things that weren’t worth watching.
