Dropped: Shangri-La

Took me long enough, right? Seriously, who else is still actually watching this crap?

I really hope this doesn’t become some kind of annoying trend. Aside from this season’s two big remakes (FMA and DBK), Shangri-La was the only series I picked up. And like last season’s Kurokami, it’s now getting its lame ass dropped for pretty much all the same reasons.

When I read over all the summaries of the series set to debut for spring, Shangri-La was the only thing that really caught my eye. It’s premise sounded really interesting, and you can’t say the idea of using a country’s carbon emissions as a currency isn’t awesome. Unfortunately, that’s this series one and only merit. The premise doesn’t even translate into a plot because I watched seven, long and arduous episodes, and I still don’t know what the plot is. That’s the only reason I stuck with it so long — I really, really wanted to know what the plot was, but I guess if I can’t find it in seven episodes, then the whole thing’s just a waste of time.
