You’d have to be stupid if you couldn’t see this one coming. I mean, they focusses on it so much last week and now I read some posts by shocked Heavy Object fans. Are you insane or did someone just troll you with inacurrate subtitles?
What it all comes down to; the boys got betrayed by one of their superiors. He, some fat guy with a big rank, thought that it’d be best to get rid of those two boys since they’ve become famous for destroying Objects all on their own. He wanted to make sure that the world went back to the way it was; the country with the most Objects rules the world. Thought of people being capable of taking down Objects without an Object of their own scared the living daylight out of him that he decided to betray his own men. To think that he’d have such a big mouth there at the end…
Anyway, those two perverts did it. They managed to destroy yet another Objects without any help. They got pushed into a corner and once again emerged victorious. The one thing that bothers me a little (but only a little) is how a lot of those mechs look alike. They have the same kind of guns and canons, shapes and colour. There have been exceptions (like this week’s next-gen mech or that huge sea mech) but the rest really looks very similar. I wouldn’t call that a bad thing but it does give the impression that the author may have been a little lazy. Could be that there’s a catch behind it (maybe a lot of nations simply tried to copy a certain Object when it first came out).Read More
Okay, I am very late again today so I’ll keep it short so I can go to bed. This time I’m fine with it since this particular episode wasn’t really that eventful. There are only a couple of things that I want off my chest this time.
So all hell broke loose and innocent citizens had to pay the ultimate price. A lot of them were slaughtered for no good reason. The boys did their best but what can 2 of them do? It’s bad enough that this war seems to be revolving around those two and their ability to take down objects without an object of their own.
I’m just happy that those two idiots don’t just keep following orders blindly. When something’s wrong or when they’ve uncovered something they tend to go their own way and pretty much disobey orders. I like that about them. That’s why it’s obvious that they are right once again and that they will definitely encounter that hostile object when they arrive at their destination.Read More
Another fantastic episode. It is ridiculous that the user ratings for Heavy Object are still so low. This is so refreshing and interesting that it’s quite hard for me to wait every week for a new episode. Some people just can’t appreciate a good thing…
I’ll be quick; I can tell that short skirt Santa, some girl whom pilots an object, is not what they made her out to be. I don’t think she’s stacked at all. She acts like a queen but I’m pretty sure it’s just another loli with small breasts and a big mouth. Not that her breasts are of any importance. I’m just pointing out that something’s up.
Now, the boys are once again being sent on another suicide mission from which they will undoubtedly return, but it’s what happened in the meantime that interests me. The princess is starting to get really interesting in our blonde protagonist. I like that. I wouldn’t mind a little romance in this story. It fits perfectly. But I want to see that ancient object get destroyed first.Read More
Normally I’d be writing this week’s Noragami post for today, but this week’s Heavy Object was so incredibly amusing that I’m more motivated to write about Heavy Object than I am about Noragami. Truly this season’s most underrated show.
So we were somehow led to believe that Milinda, the so-called princess, had to ‘man’ up and take care of that damaged object. Qwenthur and Havia supposedly did their part by trying to blow that object up and have it sink to the bottom of the ocean, but that failed. Instead that thing ended up targeting Milinda’s canons one by one to render her harmless. It seemed to be working wonders when Qwenthur had another one of his moments. I don’t want to want to speak ill of Milinda and her beloved object, but I am kind of hoping that she’ll become a little more useless in the long run.
Allow me to explain that I don’t dislike that character. I like the idea of humans destroying supposedly invincible mechs instead of mechs versus other mechs, which has been done to death. This is different than mechs going against each other, which is why I love it so. That is why I would love to see more of Qwenthur and his insane adventures.
Now, their captain kind of bugs me. She continues to tease the boys by flashing her underwear and then gets mad when they want more. Either give it to them or let them get some elsewhere. It’s war-time. If they are old enough to fight for their country then they are old enough to get their leg over. Stop with the prudish nonsense!Read More
I really am surprisingly pleased with Heavy Object. The atmosphere is so ‘genuine’ (for lack of a better word), you know? It almost feels as though something like that could actually happen one day. I simply love how things are going right now.
It’s pure genius. You basically make it clear that the world revolves around these machines called Objects that supposedly have the power to make or break a nation and then you add a few human characters that have the potential to destroy such a machine without having one themselves. It just simply works out.
Last time we had a spider-like mech that had to resupply and go in for maintenance and the boys used that to their advantage in order to destroy that thing once and for all. This time they’re up against a machine that basically rules the ocean. What I love about this one is that it doesn’t have to stop for maintenance since it has its own maintenance bay on board. Brilliant.
So I’ve established that this new mech, whom I like to call Poseidon-kun at this point in time, is truly awesome. It has very few flaws when you compare it to that other Object or the Object that their beloved princess operates. They thought that they could use its size and weight against itself by setting some explosive charges in the hope of getting it to sink to the bottom. I won’t say that it was a bad idea or anything like that, but it doesn’t really seem all that creative. Could it really have been so simple? No. That is why I’m happy that Poseidon-kun survived (from the looks of it) and that the boys will need the princess’ help with this one. I can’t wait for the next episode!Read More
