Well, that was just stupid ...
26 February 2012 | by cryptic_non_sequiturSee all my reviews

I really liked "Machine Girl", but this short was too ridiculous to enjoy. Somebody must have had some money left over after the main feature was in the can, and wanted to give his girlfriend a little more exposure.

I would be lying if I said that I didn't enjoy much of Yoshie's training, and her peppy dances, but the plot(?), writing(?) and acting(?) ruined it for me. I would rather have seen a short in which Yoshie was saved from death, and trained to become a good basketball player, in Ami's honor. Or beach volleyball player ... that would have worked, too.

If you watch this, do yourself a favor: ignore the story, and focus on the visuals, if you know what I mean ... and I think you do.
