Think of the children

Between Darker Than Black and Black Lagoon, it would seem the only things the Japanese know about Russia are that it is always cold, and they love to make snuff films featuring children. That said, for a show in which Russians constantly reference Japanese culture, clean up after class, and confess to each other with their faces all red, we must commend Bones for at least getting some things culturally accurate.

I’m actually really liking this show. I think the fact that the story is spread over more than two episodes per shot allows for them to have a lot more opportunities for big ol’ action scenes. The cast is also quite amusing. If I feel like it, I may go back and give the first series another swing. I liked parts of it, but when I watched it a few years ago, some things just didn’t click with me.

  2. I don’t like how this post is labeled Lolita Appreciation. Clearly, that loli isn’t being appreciated.

    Presumably they live in Vladivostok, which is one of the closest Russian cities to Japan. At least they gave us that much.

    As for the blushing confession scene, I feel a little better when I imagine that Nika took a shot of vodka before doing the deed. So cold that it flows like molasses, the way they like it.
