Before I get into reviewing this I want to make it clear that none of the content being reviewed in this post is suitable for children and even for adults is probably going to be confronting. Anyone who has been following the copious posts about Killing Stalking on Twitter probably already know that, but just giving everyone else fair warning.
Depsite this being a long chapter, very little actually happens. Sangwoo goes to Yoon Bum’s former address and grabs some of the stuff, pays off the land lord and returns bringing Yoon Bum (who is back to being chained up but no longer in the basement) crutches. Then Sangwoo says something strange about them going out. So… Is Yoon Bum still imprisoned, as the chain suggests, or not?
And really, that’s all I got out of this chapter. No thrills, no games, no emotional up and downs. Nothing. I get that not every chapter is going to be a gem but I’m just not sure what exactly we were supposed to get out of this. If they wanted to show us Yoon Bum’s pathetic life before Sangwoo, we already had a firm picture. Maybe there’s something significant in some of the objects Sangwoo collected but there’s nothing in this chapter to let us know that.
Part of me had been wondering how long before this story lost steam. I mean, how long can you keep someone imprisoned and find ways to make that entertaining to the audience without just going too far? Maybe it was jut me but this chapter felt like it was just stretching content.
Oh well, I’ll see what the next chapter brings.
Thank-you for reading 100 Word Anime.
