As you might’ve known, Rio Rainbow Git was one of the show’s I actually dropped blogging because it was such a giant hulking piece of crap. You might also know that I actually kept watching this trainwreck and doing an image-based blog on WaffleChan (if you haven’t visited it yet, do it now! Before the imageblog is gone forever!). However, I wanted to give the 1st show I stopped blogging on a big send-off party. One final hurrah before we flush this shit down the toilet, so without further ado, my retrospective on Rio Rainbow Shite.

I was going to bitch about the show on this part, but rather than having someone who doesn’t work in the anime industry like me tell you why this show is terrible, why not let the Twitter post from the actual storyboard writer for this episode, Itsuki Imazaki, speak for himself:
itsuki_Imazaki: Ah, episode 2 of Rio has already started. I’m worried about it…
itsuki_Imazaki: Looks like it’s mostly reverted to the original scenario.
itsuki_Imazaki: It doesn’t make any sense in that direction.
itsuki_Imazaki: What the hell is this? I’m virtually not responsible for this.
itsuki_Imazaki: Stop using my storyboard sporadically…
And if you think it’s bad to have your own script get butchered, imagine all the people like me and the legion of horny gambling otaku who stare at this crusty scrotum of an anime expecting at least an enjoyable ecchi show, only to have a pants-on-head stupid plot with about 5 seconds worth of jack-off material. And without further ado, I present to you Rio Rainbow Gate Episode 2

To start off the series, I should probably introduce our main heroine Rio. She’s actually a major sex symbol in the world of Japanese gambling as the original Super BlackJack spawned figurines, drama CDs, soundtracks, an iPhone blackjack game, and even a spot as a playable character in DoA: Paradise for the PSP. There’s quite an audience for who may be called the Goddess of Winning, but will her show be flowing milk and honey, or excrement and fail? Let’s find out.
