I am still pissed off over that summary I read of the fourth Touch movie.

I just can’t believe they would fuck over Tatsuya like that.


It’s like, “Oh, let’s knock him upside the head so that he devolves to where he was at the beginning of the TV series! Only now he’s in college, won’t that be a riot?” It’s the worst kind of sequel, where they pretty much do the exact same thing, five years later.

Look, people: after a character has evolved and grown and changed and matured, you cannot just erase that. It’s not fair to the character and it’s not fair to the audience and it’s plain bad storytelling so just don’t do it!

I wanted more Touch, yes. But not like that.

If you’ll excuse me, I need to scrub this debacle out of my brain. (Maybe with some Kyou Kara Maou.)
